electronic bondage

I am watching a coverage on CES (consumer electronic show) and it makes me think that we are all retarded. They have all sorts of electronic gadgets to let you do all sorts of shit, but if you really think about it, to run that piece of shit, you need about twenty other gadgets.

For example, they have all these devices to help you transmit your tv, youtube, pictures, music etc… so you can watch them wherever, whenever. Ok.. so you buy a tv, a computer, a digital photo frame, a mp3 player, and now they want you to buy a device to help you broadcast that shit so you can see it in more than one location? WTF? why the hell did you buy all that in the first place?

Funny.. They have photo frames that can receive pictures from phones so that you can see what your friends are doing instantly. Ok WTF, call me old fashion, but why don’t you just save that money you are going to spend on that photo frame and actually just go out with your frae3king friends!!!

Seriously, everything in life is hella complicated now. You can’t even going out hiking without thinking about buying the right shoes, shorts, tshirt, and even the damn water bottle has to be considered. What ever happened to just taking a damn walk in your boxers???

Man.. I swear, sometimes I just don’t get it. I don’t understand all these “enhancement” we stick up our asses, only to find out we need more enhancement for those enhancement. Why HD tv? why smart phones? why satellite?? why not just go DO SOMETHING!!!

Why not just go to concert if you want music, play a sport with friends if you want HD-espn, or sit down a fun-filled board game with friends instead of turning on the wii??

I am in NO way free of this electronic bondage. I have a lot of baggage that goes a long with my life, however, I do dream that one day we can just ALL go outside and say hi to our neighbors, sleep under a tree, and sing songs around a campfire!
