It’s referendum day. Even though I’m not eligible to vote, I’m excited. It’s great to see the pride, the political engagement, the hope, and the good-natured debate. The Scots are a really passionate people, and the enthusiasm is definitely contagious. It’s hard not to get excited by it all :)

Anonymous: favorite bands/artists?

I go through phases where I become obsessed with select bands/albums for a few months.

Current phase: 

- Bayside’s “Cult” (thanks to Warped Tour this summer)
- Titus Andronicus’ “The Monitor” (thanks to the lovely basilandtheblues), and
- Hugh Laurie’s “Let Them Talk” (because I’m in Paris right now and it’s impossible to be in Paris and not be in a blues-ish mood)



is anything more exhausting than a white man with opinions

The worst part about anything that’s self destructive is that it’s so intimate. You become so close with your addictions and illnesses that leaving them behind is like killing the part of yourself that taught you how to survive.

Dear future child
If it’s 3am and you find yourself in a world of complete despair
Please do not turn to strangers on the internet for solace as I did
Please climb onto my bed
And I will hold you until the demons sleep
If it is Thursday morning and you are too sad to move
I won’t force you
I will buy ice cream and we will watch your favourite tv show and I will remind you of your importance
If you feel as if you have no purpose
I will remind you that you were created entirely with love and every pain you feel, I feel too
When you’re sure you can’t go on anymore
I will tell you that when I was 21 I searched for peace at the bottom of a vodka bottle chased by a bottle of pain killers
But that five years later
When you were placed in my arms in the delivery room
I realised that you were why I had been holding on
Without realising it, you saved me, do you know how amazing that is?
So if you ever feel like grabbing that vodka bottle, put it down, we will get in the car and I will drive until the sky turns magenta
I will show you how the sun rises every morning to encourage you to rise too
Sweetheart I refuse to be unaware of your sufferings
As my mother was to mine.

I’m not at all ready to go back yet.


Truth is

We have always been a nation of immigrants… who hate the newer immigrants.
