Yeah, I know what you’re about. Last year at high school you were a jock. You drove around wit’ your boiz yelling ‘EMO’ or ‘hoooo-moooo’ at anyone in skinny jeans.

You’ve just popped into the bathroom before class to straighten your bow-tie, smooth your shirt, and comb your hair. You pat your pocket to make sure the keys to your fixed-gear bicycle lock are still there and pull the MacBook from your leather bag.You’re looking très suave as you flick your hair and cast your […]

A while ago, my best friend woke up in a bad mood. So, she said, she did everything that she wanted to do right there and then. She made a coffee, put some whiskey in it, and sat in bed smoking. Inspirational. Whiskey coffee and cigarettes at 8am. I love you. We used to sit […]

Once upon a time my good friend and I formed a revenge band to get revenge on two individuals who formed a band and sang cute songs together. I found the book we wrote our first (and last) song in a couple of days ago, and thought “What? Why? Why is this stuck in a […]
