    Social media, internet, apps and all that has created a generation of addicts.

    I was at a Pixies concert, the girl in front of me just kept opening her phone every 2-4 minutes to do absolutely useless things. Like a freaking addict she couldnt help herself but to look at her phone.

    To do what? Post pictures of the concert, read, like and reply to the posts. Scroll Instagram and Facebook and look at asolutely useless things like pictures of some toddler anniversary and many other useless crap to look at during a concert OF A BAND YOU LIKE AND PAID BIG PRICE TO SEE LIVE.

    She also ... and this is beyond stupid ... looked at videos on Youtube... OF THE PIXIES IN CONCERT ... THAT HAPPEND IN THE PAST! She is litteraly sitting in front of them right now and they're playing for her..! She prefer to watch them on youtube.. What in the actual fuck is wrong with people!

    She also spent some time reading the freaking Wikipedia of the Pixies.

    Talk about living in the moment.

    Addicts, all addicts.
