Sometimes we need to shut the computer off, ignore the Twittersphere for a while, and get lost in whatever is in our headphones. But sometimes we need to do the opposite. Sometimes we need to turn down the volume and pay attention to what Grimes has to tweet, because if we didn’t do this, we’d be missing out.
