Prozak’s “Million Miles Away” music video from his upcoming album Paranormal touches on many issues that run through the fabric of our society. When asked “If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?” the answers ranged from innocent (bedtimes) to very serious (child abuse, bullying, poverty).
- Today we examine the economy.
“The economy right now seems to be in a state of hyper-inflation. It’s crazy that the bottom is falling out so hard. You’ve got all these people living in houses with mortgages that far exceed the now-current value of their property. There’s a lot of speculation going on online that the dollar in five years will no longer be the world’s capital and that it’s going to be the euro. It’s not good but I guess at the end of the day it’s all a result of over-spending. Capitalism out of control is what it really is.
I think we’re going to have to get back to a point where the most important thing is not driving a Hummer. The most important thing isn’t spending all your money on all these crazy items because you know pop culture contributes a lot to it. Since we are in arts and entertainment I’ll go ahead and say that. Pop culture for the most part makes people idolize super-expensive clothes, super-expensive cars, going out to the club. Even though they might only make three or four hundred dollars a week they’re blowing half of that alone in one night.
Everybody kind of has to do their part and that goes for our end and everybody else to not make people feel like they have to do all that to be important, to be happy or to feel like they have some kind of status. I guess at the end of the day what makes a person who they are and not necessarily what they own. The sad thing is, right now, the things that people own actually own them.”
