A thing I do here is invite people over for some wine and the chance to meet my dog, which people do rather spontaneously, often within the hour, whereas in NYC it often takes weeks of planning to get people to your home and there is always some sort of time limit or restriction involved. But I’ve been here a month and I’ve already had so many people in my living room, and I’ve already had so many great conversations. And so many people have gotten to meet my dog.
IDK guys maybe I should move to somewhere more… um… nice? Also warm?
I haven’t been back to new orleans for 10 years. I haven’t been exploring in the US for a while. Just thinkin.

Holiday Tip: Spend more time with your loved ones, than with your camera.
Hilarious… but seriously instagram your Gram because she won’t be with you forever and photos and social media help you create community which leads to warm fuzzies.

The difference here is that the people in Seinfeld are meant to be dysfunctional and weird, but in Friends they’re supposed to be sexy, young urbanites. And yet there’s an episode where they all lose their shit about going to see Hootie & the Blowfish. It’s indicative of the fact that the writers of Friends had no interest in reflecting the times. Instead, they gave the characters a cosy, middle-aged take on modern culture that just doesn’t gel. The characters live in New York in the mid-90s, the time of The Tunnel, the Club Kids, and the Wu-Tang Clan. Yet these 20-somethings who work in fashion, TV, and trendy restaurants are culturally confined to radio rock, Die Hard, and a few gags about Chandler being into musicals. I’ve never met anyone my age with so little involvement in the world around them.
Friends ended ten years ago today. (via likeapairofbottlerockets)
I’m fine with that. That’s still part of culture. Yeah it’s a part you might not be into but that yuppie part of society exists. Friends still tackled a lot of interesting issues and it’s an important part of the TV spectrum of “shows about young people who are friends”… I could go on but the point is Friends is funny and imperfect and we all think our own singular world view is the only world view but it’s not and there are people like these people who exist.
