subculture in a box

While looking for a fitted black blouse, I amused myself with thoughts of the "subculture in a box". It's the ultimate expression of our societies "identity through consumption"

Like the goth in a box, would have a bunch of black clothing, poetry from an angst-ridden childhood, and a selection of dark music.

the dyke in a box, sturdy sporty clothing, pictures from a river rafting trip, a coupon for a short haircut, and folksy music

Geek in a box, linux penguins, a selection of think geek t-shirts, and techno and electronica music.

(For extra points how many subcultures in a box can you fill from stuff that you already own.)

Prof in a box: tweed jacket, cheap briefcase, spectacles, well-thumbed books, whiteboard markers, pipe.

*grin*

Do you think a prof-in-a-box should come with some suggested eccentricities?

So if I consume is very little I exist very little? And if change my consumption patterns I change myself? Selective consuption can work like a mind altering drug?

imagining... To consume boldly in to new dimensions of the psyche
