Today on the radio, I heard a statistic that claimed the majority of voting Americans speak between an 8th and 9th grade level. It was followed by the statistic that 97% of tumblr users own a dildo and have shelves filled with books they’ve heard inspiring quotes from, none of which have a truly cracked spine.
“I would never say we’re anti-Internet at all, I’d say we’re pro-real experiences. Pro-things that occur when you get up out of your chair and experience things with other human beings face-to-face. When we have concerts [at Third Man Records headquarters in Nashville], we don’t allow people to film and take photos. That’s not about not letting people have a memento, that’s about: how sick are you of watching people in the crowd not looking at the stage? They’re watching a tiny little TV screen in their hand instead of watching what’s really going on in life.” —Jack White
