Cause you take me higher than I’ve everever known…

"Hold On (We’re Going Home)" is a pop song. How’d it win the hip hop VMA? Haven’t felt this salty about an awards show since Kendrick lost to Macklemore.

As of one week from now I’m going to be a digital marketing intern at an arts communications company. Not quite Kanye West yet but I’ll get there.

Turn down for job interviews and funerals

Benedict Smith

I think if I ever do a collection of these dumb little 100 word things it should be called “Benedict Smith keeps it 100”.

100 words on 'moments' please

Some people believe the passage of time is an illusion, and that every moment – past, present and future - is actually happening simultaneously. So at this very instant you’re already dead, yet to be born, and (most importantly) eating pizza. 

Beyond pizza however, this has worrying implications: If the future already exists, how can we have free will? Of course, if you want to believe in free will, that’s your choice. …Or is it?

It’s also possible that time is on an infinite loop, so every moment will repeat itself eternally. Including, unfortunately, that time I vomited in someone’s face.

@thebadcactus replied to your post: anonymous said:100 words on what …

this reminds me of Lemony Snicket in the best way

Such a massive compliment, thank you. He was one of my favourite authors when I was a kid.

100 words on what it feels like to fall out of love please?

It’s better to fall out of love than, for example, a plane. One leaves you tumbling out of control with little hope for survival. The other leaves you tumbling out of a plane. I believe everything in the universe is transitory. So love, like all human beings, will inevitably wither and die. Which didn’t go down so well in my wedding vows. One problem is that the media gives us unrealistic expectations of our partners. For example, movies make you want to date a movie star, and pop songs make you want to date someone who doesn’t own a radio. 

I would like to sit in a room with you and attempt to pick your brain apart. It's weird but your mind fascinates me.

Haha that’s very sweet of you to say. My brain’s pretty overrated though. It’s just a little lump of meat. 

do you consider yourself a feminist? x

Absolutely. I believe adamantly in equality for all human beings, irrespective of gender or anything else. In my experience, most people who oppose feminism are confusing it with misandry.

There's this part of you that reminds me of Bukowski...

I used to read a lot of his stuff until it dawned on me what a misogynistic arsehole he was. Some beautiful writing though.
