I find the world galloping past me like a very fast galloping thing.You get kinda bogged down at times by what seems important but in actual fact, isn’t. Things such as celeb gossip, career progression, other people’s opinions of you, whether your friends are socially acceptable, what clothes the media tells you that you should wear, what music and films are considered ‘in’, are all frankly a total irrelevance. There are far more pressing matters that humanity as a whole should address.
Such as, what sauce goes best on bacon: brown or barbecue? Who’d win in a punch-up between Rambo and Mr T? What superpowers would you have, given a choice? These are the questions that preoccupy us. To be or not to be, my arse.
People have to start to focus on what really matters to them, not what other people think. I frankly found it refreshing a couple of weeks ago when I turned up at Curly Towers and found that Adam still doesn’t wear shoes to work. Here I am stuck in a button-down, working-for-the-man environment, trying to maintain a sense of individuality by only dressing in black and growing a beard, while a few minutes drive away in the general direction of ‘over there’ is a true slice of nonconformity. Need some truly independent funky design doing? They’re your guys (and girl).
You can also engage in long-winded conversations about where you would go given your own personal Millennium Falcon and Wookiee co-pilot, atomic-powered mythical horned horses or the relative merits of penguins versus monkeys (Pingu for the win!). Just don’t expect them to know what Jordan’s up to these days.
Meanwhile, if anyone wants me I’ll be on the Kessel run.
