The 11 Best Songs By The Joy Formidable

I had a meeting in a coffee shop today.  When I walked in, I was a little startled to notice that every single table was occupied.  That wasn't the unusual part.  Hip coffee shops in LA are always unrealistically busy, like showing up to one is the only way to keep your hipster cred intact.  What was strange was that there was only one person at each table.  Each person was staring aimlessly at their laptops.  I was the only person in place that was meeting with another physical person (well, besides the person I was meeting with, obviously).  I found this disturbing.  Why did all these people come here just to sit on their computers?  Doesn't that defeat the purpose of getting out of the house?  How can you be social with your nose glued to an artificially lit computer screen?  How are you taking full advantage of having a laptop if your only using it to do something you could pretty much do at your house?  Don't these people have coffee at their houses?  I was perplexed at the point of all this...because honestly, there was no point.  One guy was reading his Facebook.  A girl was watching YouTube videos.  It was like they were using this coffee shop as an offsite room to their house.  As cool as every single one of them thought they were being...I don't think any of them realized how stupid they all looked.
