The secret of London life

In an urban cosmopolitan setting, commitment is to events, not to people. Atomised individuals busy with their Selves seek out activity partners for events that constitute each respective life. So it's not events but self-events, a strain of YouTube clips, chosen with an ever-increasing finesse, to compile into the full-feature film of one's life. It is one's self-events that one needs to lay allegiance to, in order to avoid disappointment and wasting time.

It might be right, it might be wrong in the bigger scheme of things, but it's the art d'existence in a world city.
