"Party Pig" (猪先生​​​​​​​)
"Party Pig" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays are a bore. A tedious thing, headache inducing, dull affair. The nine to five will kill ya, BUT if you make it; if you manage to survive the seemingly endless ordeal...then my friend, comes the fruit of your labor. The glorious fling begins at midnight so prepare and rejoice for we must celebrate in grand fashion! OH YES! Make a whole spectacle of it! Greek philosopher and founder of the Cyrenaic school of hedonism, Aristippus, taught us the ethic of pleasure. He believed that human behavior is determined by desires to increase joy while decreasing or avoiding pain, as these are the only things that motivate us. I’m not making this up, it all goes back to the 4th century BCE! The witching hour calls my name and I eagerly answer its cry. Delight, ecstasy, euphoria, perhaps a bit of schadenfreude every now and then. Let’s party and make merry for life’s a circus and (if I'm being honest) you’re lucky to just be a part of the show!
