Listen: Youtube, Djelic, Golf discussed on The Forward with Lance Armstrong
"There's no, there's no authenticity anymore. No one shows the dirty side of the room. All they show is the really neat shelves. Right. They showed the, the, the side of the room that they cleaned up before they took a picture now in shows like the really dirty stuff really gritty like no one talks about the hardship anymore. And even when they do they post this, like, really in Djelic picture of the family. Together, and it's like no stop stop stop stop the duality there, the irony there is too much to ignore. Like, why are you still posting a beautiful picture when you're trying to talk about difficult difficult subject for many who are struggling because those people who are struggling are looking to they're looking for people to connect with an I'm afraid that we're losing that connection as brands and sponsors, and influence, RS gain more control over these mediums, and that, that saddens me in it scares me think there has to be a correction. I mean at some point people have to realize that this is a game, right? They're, they're just going to choose to not be gamed anymore, right. You would hope you would hope. I mean like my daughter, who's fifteen has no interest in influencers, like she's on Snapchat with her friends. She doesn't care about the guys on Instagram or any of those people. And most of her friends are no any, the influencers. I'm and so how's she now? I know you bring her up. I mean that's that's I mean, she was the colic. He won the fifteen year old. Yes. And now she's a she's she's really in Bata. All right. All right. This story is coming together. She's like a straight a student. She's a masterful piano player. Like she's, you know, full on headed straight for, like a full scholarship somewhere, but she's still into to social media, like she's, you know, she's fifteen but I ask her like, you know what YouTube star you into. We don't do that. She's like we don't do that anymore. Mom, we don't do that anymore. So I think it shift is happening. And I'm very curious to see what happens without you. Twin seventeen year old girls. And they were one of them especially was was she was all you just begin YouTube stars, the girl that, that the parents get into USC, and like the whole, like, she, she followed her shit like religiously, and so I was like who's that what and? And I'm just like, and then you see how it just far be for me to sit on my horse and say anything, but how it can really turn and bite you. And so I mean the one YouTube of her talking about I don't really care about going to college. I'm just here to party and promote my YouTube channel. I'm like, whoa. And then you see, of course, it all comes out. Yeah. Asti is nasty. It's not saying it's not I fear, especially for the 'isolation of our children. Our children aren't getting touch touches such an important part of human interaction and touch and talking, I remember talking to my friends from growing up for hours at a time on the phone. They don't talk to each other. I mean they do through the medium, but they don't like listen to their voices and they don't like they're not sitting next to each other. I don't I have don't my. have my, my phone doesn't have a voice mail. Yeah. What you're gonna leave me a voicemail. Like I'm gonna take the time to listen to your voicemail. How about you just leave me voice mail? You the biggest asshole in the world. Honestly like that's what I label. You don't leave me when we were prepping for the Sammy Hagar thing, he, he kept calling me. And he's like, hey and he'd texts. I'm trying to call it because I'm I'm old. And this, you know, we I'm not like all these millennials, we I actually get on the phone and talk to people, and I'm like house on the golf, Chris colony."
