Their faces, I just can’t

its SO DISAPPOINTING TO ME because I legitimately loved his videos and thought he was this clever standup dude
No he’s just another gross nerd on the internet with an ego to rival jupiter in size
treat me like a college textbook. spend lots of money on me but never touch or look at me
no. treat me like your favorite book. keep me by your side, touch my every page, learn all my twists and turns, remember every word I say, even the ones that make you cry

'Self censorship' is not problematic. It's not the bad kind of censorship it's worth overthrowing a government for. 'Self censorship' is just making a choice not to be a dick.
I could go around calling people ‘fag’ all the time. When I was fourteen, that’s exactly what I did. Then I learned that it made my gay friends feel less comfortable around me, and less safe generally. So I stopped. It was a hard habit to break, but I was hurting people and I didn’t realize it. I wouldn’t make the choice to hurt people like that, casually and pointlessly, but without the education I didn’t even know I was making that choice.
The same here. These videos and the outpouring of support around them are largely women saying ‘this stuff makes me feel unwelcome’ which is hopefully not what anybody was trying to do. But now that they know, I should hope they consider those choices with a more appropriate gravity in the future."

I’d always enjoyed Prawn before this year, but I was never able to truthfully say I loved them. Earlier this year, they released a split with Joie De Vivre, and that changed. Though the split only contained two new tracks, “Why You Always Leave A Note” and “Fracture,” these tracks were miles away from anything they had done prior. They were beautiful, swelling, grandiose songs, the former being a shimmery post-rock epic, the latter a catchy emo song. Now Kingfisher builds upon the foundation these songs laid out, ten tracks that burst and bloom with everything that makes this genre exciting.
