Back -- Caught you lookin' for the same thing

Uh Oh the roll below the level

Hype and overhype feels bigger now than it used to because, like all things, mass mediatization has changed the way we experience the world. But that doesn't mean the modern age invented hype - just marketed it. Hype exists because people like to exaggerate and embellish upon everything that was, is, or is about to be. If I just caught a fish, it was the biggest trout ever. That kind of thing.

Now here are some random images related to hype.
