It’s not that I like @nineinchnails - I just like songs that are named after episodes of the original series of #thetwilightzone
A year-and-half ago, I realized that I’d paid relatively little attention to this band, so I listened to justabout the entire catalog of releases. I decided that my favorite album was #thefragile - dude really seemed to be pulling some too-real stuff out in some songs, particularly in the song #whereiseverybody
Of late, I’ve been considering how much the world has changed in, oh, the past 20 years, and how people have changed, by consequence. It’s not just the standard generational disparity, since along with the inevitable “gap” between outlooks and attitudes, there’s an extra expanse to this gulf. It is likely due to how much more technologically-advanced the world is now than when I was younger. The three-channel TV, print media, and land-line phones of my parent’s world had held over, overlapped, into mine. I had learned to develop comraderie among co-workers, take interest in people I’d see regularly, and put my conversational agenda aside to learn something new about the world through the eyes of another person.
Now, however (and just for example), I feel lonely among people at my relatively-cush jobs, where, during moments of downtime, they could maybe take some interest in where I’ve been, what I’ve done, who I am, and what I do. They’re often gazing at their smartphones, “connected” to some other self-abstracted quasi-entity in the parallel mediated reality. Or they otherwise tolerate the guy (me) who’s trying to impose something “amusing” on them to establish rapport. They know that I “do” music, but they never so much as ask me about it, let alone express desire to listen to it. They’re aware that I’m into other things as well, but they don’t wanna know. Some of them are musicians, themselves, so it’s puzzling to me as to why they don’t ask me about my musical life - until I remind myself that musicians these days don’t have an instinctual sense of fraternity which instigates community, and no one knows how to take interest in others anymore.
So, where is everybody? On the goddamn Internet.

Happy Birthday, Mr. Redford! ❤️ I love teaching ELAR because it’s really about life, right? We can use any topic or subject for the most part. Well, one of my favorite things to use in literary analysis is film and music. We study a few episodes of The Twilight Zone during the course of our school year, which are great, but my absolute favorite episode stars a young Robert Redford. I don’t want to give it away if you haven’t see it, but it has a lot to offer us in terms of universal themes and literary connections. Give it a watch and let me know what you think! Season 3, episode 16 “Nothing in the Dark” #thetwilightzone#teachingwithtwilightzone#robertredford 📸: Esquire Magazine
