"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.

Enjoy! :)

Rad social commentary. I especially love the sympathy for the kids of the adult generation these days. Kids get a bad rap for being ignored by their weak parents.

Creepy yet true, part of the reason I don't engage much in social media, it's just the gossip magazines at the end of the checkout counter gone virtual.

Great animation. The links at the end of the video were also very creative, but it would be nice to have titles posted when they are scrolled over, so one knows what they are going to watch next beforehand.

We live in an egocentric world. Even this post has some merit in saying "Oh boy, I hope someone likes this!" and well, deleting every one of those socai media things like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram; I think society is better off without these things in some way.

You wait for that one like, and you feel like your on top, but it's like... a horrible addiction. Everyone who post something that seems intelligent and "catchy" does it for a chance to boost their ego. People just makes sure in hoping were on the same side of some retarded battle of, I dunno, any kind of opinion.

All in all, the animation speaks for itself. Really... the guy shooting himself with what I assume heroin I guess was no better off than the dude on his phone. The creepy smile, the position he sits, his entire position honestly labels it well enough. You could see the same person.

Social Media drains you as a person. It voids a lot of emotion and care, like a drug even. It's deteriorating human contact and well...

Enough of that, animation earns all five. Short and powerful, great animation, clever use of scenerio.

I thought it was a great commentary about social media's impact. And with the last scene I'd pose a question: Who is the worse junkie? The one getting high off of drugs, or the one getting high off of acceptance? You don't get a full five because the transitions and animation was a little choppy. Other than that I like it.
