So today is "Buy Nothing

So today is “Buy Nothing Day” – the third such event that I’ve been weblogging during. This year it has quite a stunning ‘uncommercial’ associated with it: Buy Nothing Day. I’m definitely pro-Buy Nothing Day – I’ve been a supporter of No Logo-style politics (to a large extent) for a substantial period of time now. Interestingly though it didn’t stop me last year, when I reported that the purchasing of a DVD player on such a day simply increased the terrible thrill of purchasing – that addictive high was all the more satisfying because it was illicit.
