Andy Warhol, in his book “The Philosophy of Andy Warhol,” once talked about how he loved it when he realized he was in a rut; even going so far as to say that his friends would call him up and wish him well on enjoying his rut. There has been a discussion in the press about the pleasures of just “staying in,” dispensing with the business of setting up a time to meet, and enjoying a night at home. To some degree this is probably an inevitable sea change–a return to what was once the cultural norm after broadcast media became commonplace; however, now that we have so many options in and out of the home the decision is definitely more one of choice than necessity.
Speculation in the article brings up the social media options we now have, which begs the question: “Are we ever really alone?” Cultivating extensive media contacts means that, almost inevitably, someone is going to be around. An article in the “New York Times Style Magazine” asks the same question. While acknowledging that dogged alone time is not the best human life stratagem—substitute “mandatory” for “dogged” and people might start throwing phrases like “cruel and inhumane” around—it is noted that binge-watching “Orange is the New Black” may rank pretty high if you’re looking for a low-risk option for passing the evening. Also being discussed is the notion that right now there is a meme which puts a value on the trait of being an introvert.
