GET OFF THE INTERNET

We keep distancing ourselves from one another — secluding ourselves in our houses, turning down social invitations, wearing headphones all over the city — but at the same time trying to reach out digitally & immerse ourselves in one another’s lives via Twitter, Flickr, Facebook, instant messenger. We send endless text messages but never pick up the phone, & keep up with our friends by reading their Facebook status instead of going out with them to dinner.

…& then we wonder why we all feel so lonely & isolated.

There is nothing to wonder about!

The internet is an amazing tool, but NOTHING competes with sharing physical space with another person! You can read status updates until your eyes drop out of your head but you’ll never learn as much about your friend as you would from just going out for a drink.

The internet is not real life.

GET OFF THE INTERNET.

Go fall in love or something.

On Saturday afternoon, I received an invitation to have dinner at The Standard Grill — the brand spanking new restaurant in AndrĂ© Balazs’ Standard hotel in New York City’s meatpacking district. The restaurant is so new, in fact, that it isn’t actually open yet. They offered me a table for four, so I called some […]
