On baby aubergines, pubic hair and society’s innate pederasty
On being back in England
On being good god-damn good-looking
On bleeding
On castrating my dog
On coaches and trains
On coming out as a Catholic
On cutting down the levity [from 2015]
On dark thoughts and distracting oneself from them by thoughts of adorable animals
On dressing down plus other things
On enraging the public
On euro food culture
On getting things done
On going to the football
On jazz and not engaging with the body
On killing oneself in the workplace
On masturbation as the opening to a relationship
On missing linguistic isolation
On my first wrinkle
On not being suicidal any more
On not publishing a naked picture of myself back in 2014
On poor time management
On seeing a man who looked just like a gnome
On signatures, sobriety, schoolbooks and shearing
On the fear of things I’ve laughed uproariously at other people for in the past becoming traits/weaknesses I display
On the high end contemporary art scene
On the fear that I may be a tragic figure
On the future of this blog
On the lukewarm critical reception to The Book of Mormon
On the overwhelming sadness I felt my last morning in Rome
On the phrase “I want to pump you full of spunk”
On the stage
On things that do impress me (much)

On toys for old men
On wee and on toilet humour
On worrying
Pissing off white men again
