It’s amazing how we all sit there with what in essence is a pocket computer in our pockets (think Blondie’s song “Picture this”).
We constantly have to check on our social world, just in case we have missed something; and yet the real world around us passes is by.
Getting a 4G smart watch made me think of trying something the other night though – ditch the phone, trust the watch.
I still have a means of communication, but all the apps and social media is gone. The notifications pushed from my phone stop so I just get basic calendar stuff, and I’ve still got a very basic browser and Google Assistant should I need to check soberin something.
Facebook, Instagram etc. are all history.
There was only one downside – no camera; however this was no biggie for feeling connected to the world.
Ah the legendary load (photo from last time we played there).
Cargo Fleet Club is a place hard emblazoned in the memories of all the bands who have ever played there. The steel fire escape; the rough gravelly ground at the bottom; and in the case of our band the 90 minute commute to get to the place.
Thankfully they wrap up the second set at exactly 11pm which does mean we can get on the way home before midnight.
