Buy Nothing Day

Okay it’s not really Buy Nothing Day on this day as far as I blogger know, as I think according to those headline news of the day that it’s actually Occupy Wall Street Day 17. It’s just that this blog wants to confuse me sometimes in its newsspeak Orwellianess with its times, dates and histories in my attempt to maintain more than one blog whenever blaghers block possible. As this is yet another one of those recycle this blog posts that found itself posted on this blog some time a while ago.

It’s that time of year again, the holiday season is upon us, according to the calendar and advertisements, and it’s the most joyous festival time of the year, or is it. And Thanksgiving Day in America is later this week, that nationalistic day to be thankful for something. And remember the Indians, their beads and trinkets, that twenty four dollars and the land of Manna-hatin, and eat more tofurky. No one is free when others are oppressed. And isn’t the day after Thanksgiving day Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year, or is that the day after Christmas. Well this year the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, November 23rd, is also Buy Nothing Day and isn’t this day celebrated around the world. I am not exactly sure what the story behind this concept is, but I think it has something to do with buying nothing. And Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping will be out there in the streets with shopping events all over New York City all day long. And I imagine there will be a ton of other events in observation of this day. Adbusters will be hitting the streets for a 24 hour consumer fast and there will be a Buy Nothing Day Freegan Feast on this day also. Maybe one can help save the environment and planet earth on this day by consuming less. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.

The Cash Register


And in blah blogger thoughts on this day. Whatever happened to those good old fashioned check out registers, ringing, pull the hand lever with those numbers that roll around in those windows on the top of them like those lottery number windows, cast iron steel cash registers of the past. It seems like the shopping, buying and selling transactions that I encounter in those merchant stores these days and times all involve those computerized and digitalized cash registers that seem to break down on a daily basis, to where I keep hearing sales clerks say things like “The computers not working”, or “The server is down”, or “You can’t purchase this item because the computer is not working”, or “Please wait til I reboot the cash register so that you can purchase that item”, or “The credit card machine is not working”, or some other phrase to where it seems like I can’t even shop anymore. And it could be the age of the rfid tag barcode, save no man that he may buy or sell except that he have the mark of the beast globalism conspiracy thing, maybe. What’s that all about in these high tech technology all things electronic buy and sell days?

A Downtown Brooklyn Holiday Welcome Center



Hey bloggers, or whoever could be reading this blog. And somehow I found myself in front of Modell’s at a Downtown Brooklyn Holiday Welcome Center today for some reason or another, in what seemed like the freezing cold of yet another New York City winter. And oh, I guess I found myself there to listen to that band Underground Horns that I sometimes find myself listening to every so often for some reason or another. And wow, the Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz was a guest speaker there also. And so I found myself there see the president. And see the president of Brooklyn and the Underground Horns play some audio gumbo I did. And I guess those downtown welcome centers that seemed to be sponsored by the The Downtown Brooklyn Partnership, The Court, Livingston, Schermerhorn Business Improvement District, Fulton Mall Improvement Association and MetroTech Business Improvement District in Brooklyn are to usher in the holiday shopping, shopping and more shopping season every Wednesday in December in that city of Brooklyn to be found in that City of New York, as I think that’s what the Brooklyn Borough President said in his speech today when he held up one of those Shop Downtown Brooklyn tote bags that encourage shoppers to support the local businesses this holiday season. And these Brooklyn Business Improvement District groups seems to have events, events and more events. And Julian Peterson and the Urban Assembly School for Law and Justice Music Ensemble were performing there at Hoyt Plaza throughout that Brooklyn Business Improvement District as part of this event on this day as well. And so in yet another attempt to drag the camera out of the closet, I posted a couple of those photos from that event in this blog posting above, and a YouTube video of that event as well. And those Downtown Brooklyn Holiday Welcome Centers shopping, music and events rock. Have a great Brooklyn, New York and beyond holiday.

And Sears is a department store where if you can’t find it there for your holiday shopping, you can’t find it anywhere, maybe. And now just in time for the holidays, holiday shoppers can find a Canon Powershot 8.0 megapixel 4X optical digital zoom still camera for 149.99 before your $30 instant savings, as well as a Sylvania 32” class LCD HDTV for only $429.99.

Kmart


“Kmart is your savings place”. Isn’t that some sort of jingle from years ago that comes to mind when I think of Kmart and its red K sign for ones pleasant family shopping experience. And I remember that department store from what seems like decades ago. And Kmart is the only national discount department store that offers layaway. And I have always thought of Kmart as these really big shopping stores where one can find just about anything at great low prices. And Kmart’s got a Kmart Lay-Away Program. I didn’t know that. You can enter your zip code in the search box at their website to see if the Layaway option is in your area. I should keep that in mind the next time I go there and find myself short in change. And as I remember, those Layaway programs have always been great over the years when one is short on cash to buy that item that one is looking to buy. And with the Christmas season soon approaching, one can reserve their gift item or large purchase early and pay over time just in time before Christmas with Kmart’s layaway program. And that Christmas tree that is in the photo above can make a great gift of holiday decor as your holiday centerpiece, and it can also be easy to pay for with a Kmart layaway just in time for this holiday season. And be sure to check out their “Mr. Blue Light” specials while you are there also, as Kmart can be your one stop destination for all things Christmas this season. Happy Holidays.
