Miserable and loving it
Thank you Mollie for this clip of Louis CK.
“We live in an amazing, amazing world,” the comedian told Conan, “and it’s wasted on the crappiest generation of just spoiled idiots.”
The headline from Barefoot Meg was what got me: “Everything’s amazing, nobody’s happy.” Yes, people are filling their lives with “convenience” and entertainment. But so what?
Reminds me of why the SlingBox creator told me he’d root to get rid of technology:
“Everyone always has said, ‘Oh, computers or e-mail or whatever are going to make your life easier. It’s going to give you more time to spend in leisure.’ Who are we kidding? There is nothing farther from the truth. It just means you can work harder, harder and faster, faster.”
