"The Social Media Generation"

This is an adaptation from the original comic "Marc Maron: The social media generation" by Zen Pencils.

The script used in that comic is a quote from Marc Maron's book "Attempting Normal".

This animation is also available on youtube in HD.

So true. Excuse me while I share this on Facebook.

No seriously; I'm glad you made this to make people aware. Technology now revolutionized society to the point where people just begin to operate like machines themselves. Real social interaction now has become obsolete, because you don't have to go outside and talk to someone face-to-face when you have Internet. Yes; technology has its massive benefits, but we can all agree its trade-offs are absolutely devastating to culture, originality of thought, and the freedom to say something without being monitored.

Good stuff; keep it up man. :)

I think some people may simply have addictive personalities and will find something to constantly be doing no matter what. In the 80s and the 90s, women shouted at their husbands to get off the couch and quit watching TV.......I know before I had a smart phone I could check constantly, I was addicted to Newgrounds. I could stay up all night on Newgrounds. But it is an excellent comparison, and a good message. I'm working hard on taking time away from social media. Good job on the animation!

Wow, I was so expecting a comedy bit when I clicked on this, I'm glad that it wasn't one. I really liked it, the message was thought provoking, especially with the allusion to the heroin junkie, that was nice. But besides that, the animation was nice, not too overly complicated, but just detailed enough to really sell it. Also, the musical selection, sound effects, voice acting, etc. really blended together, I personally think that the sound sold the video for me, kinda had that horror/serious-anime feel to it, Big O came to mind for some reason. Anyways, very nice animation, keep up the good work, I'll be watching for your next video.
