New York, NY


Don't Fight The Last War by Moving to NYC - 3/3/2021
As our culture becomes more atomized, NYC - the singles capital of the world - is the showroom for the rest of the US of what's to come. It USED to be a great city... back when there was such a thing as culture in this country, true friendship existed, and romance was a real possibility. Now that social media has removed any possibility for a counterculture to exist and form new trends, the only culture phenomena that form are created by corporate committees with a profit motive. Friendships are useless in NYC unless they can be documented for social media. And, romantic entanglements are as meaningful as the swipe of one's thumb. Consequently, it's no surprise that NYC has become a cultural and spiritual wasteland - unless you think seeing the Broadway version of The Lion King is culture. Friendships are fleeting and dating is a total nightmare. I've lived in NYC for nearly 20 years. I'm rich. I moved here broke and made it in NYC. I have nothing to complain about. It's been good to me. But, it has ZERO to offer at this point. The restaurants suck, are overcrowded and overpriced even by NYC standards, the people hate each other, and there's nothing to do other than sit in your apartment and brag to your friends back in Springfield that you're in NYC. What's the point? If you're young and want to start your career, you can do that anywhere now and you don't have to give up your entire paycheck for a crappy apartment as the price of entry. Start your life elsewhere. I'm off to Miami (Feb 2021).
