Mike Shinoda's Glorious Excess (Dies) show is highly anticipated. It is a follow up to his Glorious Excess (Born) show which was extremely successful in 2008. This show opens on August 29 at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles.

Mike Shinoda's show is expected to continue to explore topics like society's obsession with celebrity culture, consumer addiction and their fascination with excess.

Implications - With the effects of the recession still being felt by many, now more than ever there is an increased obsession with fantasy life. Through heavily focusing on celebrity culture, many people find they are able to live vicariously through celebrities and their excessive spending. Businesses should focus on celebrity trends and consider incorporating affordable alternatives for middle-class customers.
