Way to go, man (afest)! Keep making music!
As much as we love how our personal music playing magical pocket computer device lets us listen pretty much anywhere, it does kind of isolate us and the rest of the world from music. Which is more than a little ironic, dontcha think? Not that we need to revive the days of Radio Raheem, but…music is for sharing, people.
Remember the olden days? When people would talk just a little bit before breaking into song? And often other people just minding their own business would join them? No, not like this. Like this. Nice to know what the guy next to you was thinking (and how amazing that everyone had such beautiful singing voices!)—But really, it’s a wonder anybody ever got any work done.
