Let’s be real, in a time before the internet people didn’t have more adventures and make more meaningful connections. They watched TV and listened to CDs. Before that they listened to records and read magazines. Before that they listened to the radio and read bad dime novels. Before that they embroidered or some shit.
People have been staying inside and ignoring other people for as long as there have been buildings.
“I’ve been breathing evil air
Sharing needles with the sky
Looking up remembering
Regina said they’re just old light.
But you somehow understood
My oversaturated skin
You held your hand up to my neck
And played me like a theremin
I see London I see France
And all the things that we won’t do
And if I never leave this chair
Maybe I can go with you.”—Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra-The Living Room (via fuckyeahamandapalmer)
