thank u so much to @shura and @shamir326 for contributing to this piece i reported alongside harley brown for @vulture. i know that the commodification of queer artists and queerness generally is something a lot of people are discussing increasingly, and it was v interesting to talk about these people’s varying experiences with the biz. link in bio.

“bad news comes, don't you worry even when it lands/good news will work its way to all them plans/we both got fired on, exactly, the same day/well, we'll float on, good news is on the way/and we'll all float on okay.” happy week. 🐣

my mother and father conspired to make father’s day and my mother’s birthday fall at the same time every year. i am their greatest gift.

i am really bad at relaxing which is just as well because approximately ten minutes after this pic was taken while i was enjoying the serenity of an empty pool, two young children with floaties and mothers arrived and relaxing was cancelled. also i went to see “booksmart” tonight and it was the panacea to all sad feels.

i had this poster on my wall when i was little. i had a whole wall of spice girls posters. on april 4, 1998, i went to my first concert ever at the glasgow secc with my mum and my aunt phyllis. it was the spice world tour. we were pretty far up in the gods and i remember the first few songs i was terrified of the boom in my stomach and the level of screams. i didn’t know if i could stay, but i did, and when the time came for an encore, my mum was so worried about exit traffic she made the call for us to leave during “viva forever” and i’m still sour about it. i keep seeing videos from the current uk tour on here and it reminds me of how completely formative that band were. i had never known obsession until they arrived, and i think so much of what i wanted from life and who i wanted to be in the world stemmed from baby, ginger, posh, scary and sporty. they were accidental punks in high street clobber. they were the bestest of friends. and for the most part they had absolutely none of the skills required except the one that’s impossible to fake - chemistry. they were what i needed: five symbols that proved that what you need is a hard work ethic, a bulletproof attitude and some zig-a-zig-ah.

circumstance is a gift. reading about the bloodshed in sudan is a sober reminder of that. the power of the internet has generated international attention for the crisis taking place in a country where civilians are deprived online access by the government. i don’t post things like this too often because... i don’t know. mixed feels about its efficiency. but i am also an empath and i believe that small actions by the many can create a shift. 💙

imogen heap is a real innovator and weirdo and singular artist who impresses because she doesn’t concede to the idea of perfection. she makes loads of errors because she’s doing something nobody’s done before. it’s amazing to watch a genius at work figuring out new things in real time. this song is called “shurayo” and is from guy sigsworth’s new album. he also blows my mind. he played on bjork’s “all is full of love”, he co-wrote “what it feels like for a girl” - one of my favorite madonna songs, he produced “everytime” for britney. he was also one half of frou frou. so many things sound like frou frou to me now. when it comes to pushing music forward britain is still the one.

spent the past 48 hours and 6.5k words in my happy hell. sometimes the hardest part of writing is the part where you’re writing about the things that matter the most and you’re not inserting yourself. it’s not about you, it’s about something bigger. it takes a lot of quelling the ego. the ego wants to get involved. man, i can’t help but bow to the privilege i’ve arrived at of being able to write about the things that move my own mountains, because that’s a long road - one you earn over time. it’s a choice to tell the stories of others, and it’s a choice to be a passenger in those tales or maybe the chauffeur and to acknowledge the value in that alone. because that alone is why you arrived here in the first place. i think of it almost as a type of affection. i nap now.

it’s such a shame that men didn’t understand humour in the 90s. “don’t be surprised if i love u for all that u are/i couldn’t help it... IT’S ALL YOUR FAULT!!!!” that is a deep dark lol. honestly jagged little pill to me sounds like the joy you get after hyper extending your feels. a retroactive take.
