Lonely People

Do you think social media makes us more or less connected?

I mean on one hand I have thousands of people I can message at any time, but how many of them do I have a real connection with?

But there were lonely people long before social media . . . just listen to Paul McCartey’s voice on this blend. I recently saw Santigold perform (I was there for Madge) and remembered the song “Disparate People”. The lyrics to both songs remind me very much of life in a big city, especially at night, and especially in L.A., hence the video of Los Angeles traffic. L.A. feels like about the fakest and loneliest place on the planet.
