  • Beck told Q magazine about this self-help cry in the face of 21st century digital overload. "Anybody who has a phone or a computer lives with the distractions pulling you this way and that," he explained. "We haven't figured out how to have access to everybody and everything all the time and how it affects us physically and neurologically. Or at least I haven't. My analogy to friends has been that I feel as if somebody has removed the front door of my house, permanently."
