This is about as politically/culturally controversial as I get - Draw any conclusions from any metaphors you might observe.

Hint: This is a pretty accurate depiction of my feelings toward television :P

This is exactly how I see people who are fans of reality TV.

Is the meaning that we are all dead inside (hence the skull) when we watch reality TV (Jersey shore)? The american addiction to entertainment that may become our downfall?

Very Thought out.
I love it except for the TV.
It just seems heavy handed.
I think it could have done without the flame and the "Jersey Shore" but that's just me.

I really dig your little friend. Reminds me of the assistants in Amnesia:The Dark Descent.

To me, Heavy-handed American celebrity worship WAS the point. It was actually submitted with "American Idol" on the screen. Not so well-known is my utter disdain for Television; I haven't had television service for 6 years.
Thank you for your honest critique, I really appreciate it :highfive:

Wow, what a wonderful thing to say.
The meaning kind of jumped out at the end!!
I do love earth tones, have to push myself to incorporate other colors too.
Thank you so much for your comment!! :)
