JESSE SAMPLE’s FREAK of the WEEK is heard on RadioRadioX.com EVERY WEDNESDAY at 8pm EASTERN! 

This is Jesse Sample. The past 100 years of human technology have been wild, to say the least. The last 50 years have been especially nuts. Nobody that I know, or have ever heard of, has or has had a great grandmother with an only-fans page. We are, as a human race, before a new frontier.

In the modern day, the billions of years of technology composing our gray matter is now in contact with a white-hot new technology that is fusing all of our old tech together. And by my estimation, we’ve gained a lot. I can pay my bills from my bed while I stream the Sopranos. I can listen to a podcast, order my coffee ahead of time, take an uber, and send my weekly art project to my buddy Rob across town on Tuesday nights.

But I wonder what is being lost. Our brains are in a different place than those of our great grandparents, not to mention our cavemen predecessors. Is there a way to enjoy the perks of modern technology without losing our animal sense for what’s real and meaningful? Would our Great Great grandmothers have had only-fans accounts if the technology was there? I mean, they lived through a depression and what is more animal style hard wired than a parents drive to feed their young.

This week’s song is my attempt to find a balance in my life between the alluring separation that technology provides and the skin-to-skin messy affairs of being a physical human among other physical human beings.
