The other day I was kind of drunk and I called my dad a “basic and unevolved Neanderthal” because he said he didn’t like Made in Chelsea or the Kardashians - like come on man, everyone initially thinks it is shit and despairs for humanity at the thought of it, but then u gotta move past that and into a realm of deeper human consciousness - u have yet to realize that accepting these shows into your life means that u have surpassed this basic viewpoint and u are on the path to immorality

A very important drunk rant
I kind of get why literally everyone hates people who clap when the plane lands, but at the same time I think the hatred is overhyped. Like, I’m not usually nervous on planes but I have sometimes had the spike of panic hit me when it begins to land - and I start looking back on my life and telling my parents I love them etc just in case, and sometimes I actually convince myself that it is the end and I’m about to die - and when that happens, I have to resist the urge to clap when I don’t die, because it is a massive relief (I still never have clapped but I may get there one day when I stop giving a shit).
So clearly it is a thing with nervous flyers (that doesn’t look like the right spelling, to clarify: I am not talking about nervous bits of paper telling u about Jesus) and therefore it is kind of a dickish move to take the piss..
These universal hate things sometimes don’t compute with me - like internet explorer, comic sans, crocs, whatever
. I am unashamed to admit that at the age of 13 I wore crocs, this was my punk rebellion move - I realized they were ugly and people laughed at them, but at the same time they were super comfy - and I chose comfort over conformity! Fuck getting a controversial tattoo, this is what tru rebellion looks like!
And do you realize what all of these “universal hatreds” of our generation have in common? Old people; the pioneers of not giving a shit about what anyone thinks
If you well and truly didn’t give a crap about what others think of you - you would unironically get a fucking internet explorer tattoo with the words “I clap when the plane lands” written in comic sans surrounding it
But nah, you have yet to reach true enlightenment
Didn’t actually say that I liked him tho clam down - nd my mums friend payed cos it’s her bday present cos Shakespeare is the shit? Like as if I have £50 to spare on theatre shows.. But yeah I am very well aware of these things and was actually a total buzz Killington telling everyone I went with about him being a dick to Lucy Liu - but I’m not going to refuse a free ticket to see a really good play for my mums birthday.. I can’t just go through life avoiding anything that involves a problematic person because that would be very limiting! Especially because I appreciated his work before I found out he was a dick - I know it is different but like with Woody Allen, I can’t just suddenly decide that my favourite film is a terrible film just because I found out that the director was a terrible person. It’s a really difficult thing and I am well aware of Martin Freeman’s huge faults, but in my head I went to see Richard III, who as it were is also a beholder of terrible flaws… But not in the same way the actor is. I guess maybe it is stupid to separate actors from characters but as a lover of fiction that is what I tend to do. Just like how I’m not going to boycott seeing the next Hobbit film, because in my eyes that is not Martin Freeman, that is Bilbo Baggins. I’m sorry for rambling here, I’m just trying to stress that problematic artists (be it actors, directors, musicians etc) can be a really complicated issue - and it shouldn’t have to ruin the things that you enjoy, as long as you try to separate the art from the monster behind it
We named my cat after Talulah from Bugsy Malone and we were just wondering if it was like a self fulfilling prophecy that she actually turned out to be as sassy and cool as the character - and then we realized that our other 2 cats are SO MUCH like Bugsy Malone and Fat Sam - this is like a massive family scandal, I had to run and tell my parents and wake up my brother to let them know and omg omg how have we had these cats for all these years and not realized that they are the whole cast of Bugsy Malone omg
Best bit of seeing Martin Freeman doing Richard III was when my sister leaned over in the middle of a very angry soliloquy and said “op think bilbo’s had the ring on for a bit too long”
