Speak to a celeb of his stature?! Madness!
we’re all humans xylo and trying our best
actually sometimes I don’t try my best because I’m lazy then the next day I think “why are you being such a knob?!”
So…sometimes we try our best?
dunno what that is but sounds good!
In what context?
aaah. Gosh people have good memories!
I feel like we’ve lost sight of what makes DiS good sometimes.
Anyone dune “moraTORYum” yet?

Maybe voter turnout in my area is just particularly poor
gross as shit, going hand in hand with being in bands and the sort of laddy banter and hedonism that was glorified.
I hope people in their late teens/early twenties now are more conscious of this stuff

it’s a difficult to find what you are comfortable with in your heart when you really feel like being on the right is fundamentally harmful to people. I mean, I don’t want people to be on the right, I don’t want people to feel that way about the world, it makes me sad and angry
