    Taken from Irvine Welshs Trainspotting. In the end we all know he chose heroin. But heroin and ethics aside, are we not succumbed to every single choice before that? Choosing the next phone, who we vote on television, who becomes the next idol. Are we not tied up and led to make unimportant decisions on a daily basis? Have we been sucked dry by media zeal and tricked into becoming mind-numbing obsession opinionated individuals?

    Yes Taksub is the theme and obsession is the game. Write and/or illustrate and/or photograph your views on how you view this obsessed world. It could be about that the world is obsessed with thousand ringgit clothing or even to the Starchitects, whose image of architecture has greatly skewed our roles to the public and how the public perceive the profession, to the immaculate im-age of which school you came from, what degree you earned. You are your own view to the world.

    Sesi Suara openly welcomes non-architectural backgrounds to submit as we believe that architecture is a collective knowledge, and that collective knowledge is the product of a multitude.

    Choose a life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a f*cking big television. Choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers... Choose DSY and wondering who the f*ck you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit crushing game shows, sticking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away in the end of it all, pushing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, f*cked up brats you spawned to replace yourself, choose your future. Choose life... But why would I want to do a thing like that?
