'It's Hard to Get Around the Wind' - Submarine - Alex Turner
I’ve spoken a lot with the game designer and writer Harvey Smith recently about whether having a privileged background or upbringing helps a person produce better art, or whether having a difficult life helps produce better art (Harvey has a wealth of stories about his background that would make you think the latter). I concluded that when you don’t have things like social ostracisation, war, poverty or sickness in your way, it’s much easier to make things faster, which is probably why middle-class white dudes produce such a vast array of our art. There’s a better hit rate, y’know? And it’s not necessarily that broken people make better art, though perhaps sometimes the ability to communicate pain helps. I don’t believe you have to be beaten down by society to make something profound. You just have to be able to produce it, and that’s the hard part. The hard part is telling yourself you are that person. The person who makes.
Might test the waters by doing that MEBB thing… I could also stab my leg, that’d be just as plausible
I can only conclude that something Dragon Age related happened

Sorry to hear it, hope things are all right.
syzara replied to your post “Ah. Hmm. Had a phone call, me nan got sent into hospital, and my aunt…”
that sucks :(
It’s fine, it sounds bad but I’m actually not as bothered as it sounds. My aunt and my dad aren’t in a tizzy and are waiting until tomorrow’s visiting hours to go see her so I can reasonably assume that whatever happened it was probably relatively minor.
On top of that I don’t have a great relationship with either my aunt or my nan, which again sounds like a horrible thing to say, but that doesn’t make it any less true. She’ll likely be discharged in a weeks’ time and I can go back to ignoring their thinly veiled, sanctimonious insults
Ah. Hmm. Had a phone call, me nan got sent into hospital, and my aunt is being characteristically reluctant to give details. As per usual
