    wow… lately i’ve been thinking a lot about the digital life we’re getting into… i work all day long on the computer and when i get home i usually keep surfing the internet… looking for images, videos and music..

    for the last couple of months i have been painting with difrent stuff, wrigting.. even skating (and getting hurt doing so).. but still i can´t let go the feeling that most of the time we take for granted that our lives are….digital

    gives me an odd feeling… (don’t know if i get myself clear)

      ya, there are a lot of interesting things that are happening to the population as a whole (i would imagine) because of the big shift to digital things. The whole move is interesting. I think patience and gratitude have gotten cluttered. it is tricky to try and explain, but I at least agree with you there.

      I wonder how long people will hold on to these processes, and other physical mediums, like vinyl and film. I imagine, and I hoooope, that they’ll continue indefinitely. Any thoughts from people who are more educated than me?
