|On set of Drunken Idiots: The bosses|
Amazing things: IPADS, Nooks, cell phones that do everything- camera- video –scheduling things- GPS- Texts- email- surf the web- MP3 player and some of them even have phones in them where you talk to text.. the listener gets a text... reads it, then talks to text back..
It's almost as good as talking to someone.. but that's old school.
|Baby Maddy already thinks I'm an outdated ol fart|
|Gizmo and Ryker are already texting dailey.|
People go into there own little world- everyone on the subway has their ear buds in- yes I know most of the people on the subway I wouldn't want to talk but at least sit in their own thoughts for a moment.
|My wife is the only person I'll talk to some days.|
But where is the human contact. I see people who are friends sitting next to each other listening to their shitty house music instead of talking about their bad taste in music.
Here is the real issue- as a performer I cannot stand the fact there are folks who can't not text in the 2 hour period they are at a show.. If its an emergency- maybe your not stable enough to come to a show. If your bored-LEAVE.
|Get with it or get out of the way...|
And of course social media. What happened to my friends in real life? I don't have time to hang out with them – They are in a theatre company getting in touch with their roots to communicate and be story tellers yet i can only chat with them via text message.
