We’ve invited Dream Seeker character the Realtor to give his take on some photos Tony Vahl took, as well as to talk about the new economy we’re living through currently.
- photo of house with graffiti, announcing that the house has already between vandalized once
“The house already looks vandalized. The graffiti is overkill.
“This is a great example of what is wrong with the economy. People have no pride in what they own. This homeowner should invest some effort in making the house look good, which would increase the value of the home and the surrounding neighborhood.
- $7.99 Wii games
“That’s capitalism. Demand goes down, and so do prices. Nintendo is reacting to the market by announcing a new console for 2012.
“You can’t blame Walmart for selling you a game that cost $49.99 two years ago that only costs $7 today. Heck, you got to play that game back when everyone was playing it. It was part of your social experience, bonding with fellow game players as you played We Ski or Red Steel. Connecting with friends and family is always worth the full retail price.”
- half-eaten McDonald’s chicken sandwich laying on the ground, in front of a gas pump
“Heh, Tony Vahl. I just have to laugh at this photo because it proves my point: the recession is in your mind. If gas prices were really that bad, that sandwich would be in someone’s stomach, and not the floor.
“The fact that we throw out so much food proves the economy is still strong, despite what the naysayers claim. Including you, Vahl.”
