Drinking Coke with Lacan: the quest for THE can

The Coca-Cola company’s recent advertising campaign is nothing short of brilliant. Drink not just any coke, but drink the one made for you, your friends, even your soulmate. Brilliant. Nothing brings the world together like the combination of aluminum, acidic water, and high fructose corn syrup. In one fell swoop, they have conjured up anContinue reading “Drinking Coke with Lacan: the quest for THE can”

The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire.
