gabydunn:

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.

In Conversation – Tim Minchin

Tim Minchin: The satirist who ran out of upwards to punch

…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.

Tim Minchin: The satirist who ran out of upwards to punch

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

The Buried Life (excerpt) | Matthew Arnold

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.
