Tim and Gaby have a deep chat about hope, evil, feminism, and the internet.
Hey guys. I interviewed Tim Minchin for Inconnu Mag and it just came out finally. I am so so proud of this one. I think the conversation we had was amazing and I wish I could talk to everyone this way. Please check it out and share it if you like it. Thank you.
…there’s a parallel story about words here, because a satirist – particularly one with a social conscience, particularly in the age of the online outrage machine – must weaponise his or her ability to be offensive, and then ensure it obliterates the intended target rather than bystanders. A satirist lives and dies in the grey idea between intended and unintended offence.
Bring your love to me / I will hold it like a dandelion / One I want to save, one I want to keep / from the breeze that follows me and no one else
But often, in the world’s most crowded streets,
But often, in the din of strife,
There rises an unspeakable desire
After the knowledge of our buried life;
A thirst to spend our fire and restless force
In tracking out our true, original course;
A longing to inquire
Into the mystery of this heart which beats
So wild, so deep in us—to know
Whence our lives come and where they go.
