That's wonderful, but the beholder is not left with much to interpret, it's quite straightforward. Perhaps that's what you intended.

i like your concept~
the composition and the use of black and white is good~
my only comment is that the tv-man looks squat and short, looks a bit awkward. he's legs don't look like they can support the weight of the tv so maybe giving him some more leg for height would be good~
just a suggestion~
hope i've helped :)

ha a bit 1984ish don't you think?
you left an "r" out of your
what do you think of the cencorship going on in standarised school text books throughout the grand U.S of A? feeding children shit about equality. not being allowed to portray women taking care of children at home, not allowing children to read material that shows differences in the economic or social status between races and a master load of other fucked up and sadistic crap.

Ah, someone who realizes that censorship goes both ways. Face it, folks, the liberals would just as soon try to control what we see, hear, and read as would the conservatives. It's just a matter of what information...

THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO EXTREME GRAPHIC CONTENT THAT IS NOT SUITABLE FOR ANYONE. THIS PROGRAM'S EXPLICIT CONTENT HAS BEEN CENSORED FOR THESE REASONS LISTED NOW----------INDIVIDUALS WHO FIT DEMOGRAPHIC STEREOTYPES, SUPPORT FOR THE IRAQ WAR, NON-WHITES COMMITTING CRIMES, ARGUMENTS AGAINST AFFIRMATIVE ACTION, ECONOMIC GROWTH UNDER A REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT, VIOLENT PROTESTORS, POLICE OFFICERS RISKING THEIR LIVES, RELIGIOUS VIEWPOINTS. THESE ARE A FEW OF THE MANY THINGS WE ARE HIDING FROM YOU. IT'S FOR THE GREATER GOOD. MEANWHILE WE ARE HAPPY TO PRESENT TO YOU THE INSPIRATIONAL FILM "IF YOU'RE A REPUBLICAN, YOU'RE EITHER IGNORANT OR GREEDY"

I HATE CENSORSHIP!!! I think it ruins artistry just incase of a few "spilt teas" which quite frankly you cannot do in life! But hey, well done! I realise that was too British for me and I don't care!

Yet only in ignorance can our true Utopia exist, though it be only in our minds. Such blatant pieces as this shatter the Utopian illusion, awakening knowledge as well as defiance. Is Dystopia the only constant in life? Remember the words of George Orwell in 1984: "WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH." What do we desire: blissful lies, or anarchist truth? While we know the truth, we oppose the governmental standards of ignorance that they desire. Great piece, hope it causes others to consider these points as well.

shit, this is the best thing i've seen in a long time. it's great that you mixed seemingly superficial things like "small-breasted women" with things like "civilian casualties" because it really highlights the ridiculously narrow and artificial view of the world we're shown on tv. i spose you could take out "these are just a few of the things we're hiding from you," since that point is already made without you having to state it explicitly, but that would be the only criticism i have.

Fantastic. The modern media exists to distract us, not to inform us. All we are is a target demographic. Excellent work.
