Come with me. Let’s look for every possible reason to get away.
Or rather, let’s leave for no good reason at all. Just come with me.

I love this song. This remix made me love it even more!
This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York. This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.
Ian Somerhalder talks about Fifty Shades of Grey role: “There are so many guys up for this role. I’m having a meeting with the producer of that movie, like many, many, many other actors are. It would be a very cool experience for whoever gets that role, but until there’s more information that’s really all I have.” - Prestige Hong Kong, April 2013
