After watching an episode of “South Park”…………yes………I’ve been watching “South Park.” Please try not to act to surprised. I watch a LOT of cartoons for both kids as well as adults.
Anyway, I was watching an episode of “South Park” and I was pretty intrigued with the most recent episode, “Happy Holograms.”
A movement of sorts seemed to have bubbled up and in some odd but awesome way, I am a part of it, called #SaveTheLivingRoom.
One of the main characters, Kyle Broflovski, go on a mission to get his little brother and others to embrace the fact that we could stand to get off our phones and our social media pages and our computers and actually get together and be with one another, in the comforts of our living rooms.
“The Living Room is dying,” Kyle says. He makes a good point. The fact that the living room was the place where families and friends would gather is slowly becoming something else…an empty, cold room.
So, I’m helping push the point…to come together to #SaveTheLivingRoom. You can follow my updates on it on twitter @CartoonDaily1 as well.
We could at least commit to spending at least an hour of time with those we know and love in that place we used to gather together before technology connected us in a completely way.
It’s one of my latest side projects, one that I hope grows and grows fast and really get’s individuals to actively make sure to spend time with family, friends and loved ones in their living rooms (and anywhere for that matter) without our smartphones, computers or tablets.
