Cool. No being bullied isn't an illness. But it can affect your mental health. Which can become an illness. Just like eating bad food all the time isn't an illness. But it can lead to diabetes. Which is. So it's not an illness, but it's a matter of health. That's all I meant. Glad to hear you're tak...

So yeah, it's not the art that people hate. It's the artists, right? If they feel the work is merely being passed off as meaningful, if they feel the artist has nothing to say or hasn't mastered the medium they've chosen to work in. Art to me is just a conveyance of meaning. So I don't really differ...

I'm pleased to hear that people are having nice dreams. Maybe I just don't remember mine and the negative ones are the ones I bring with me when I wake.

Work should never be so important that it trumps good health. If you need time off to function properly then take it and if your boss is good enough to pay you anyway then accept that help without any feeling of guilt or shame. Autism isn't an illness but it's a condition that messes with our abilit...

I want to talk about sex. I feel like, generally, I prefer to masturbate than to have sex with a partner. I think this has always been the case for me. The idea of having sex with a person has always been very appealing, the idea of someone wanting me and getting physically excited by me, but the re...

I have a soft spot for 90s PCs, 486s and the first generation of Pentiums becaused that's when I first got interested and it was all so exciting - massive leaps forward were being made. I'd love to collect these things and tinker with them but I have neither the space nor the time for now. Maybe whe...

I would add that among the flakes and oddballs spouting pseudo science and speculation on YouTube, there are also genuinely free-thinking, knowledgeable people who are putting valuable ideas out into the world that wouldn't get a hearing on filtered media channels because they don't fit with accepte...

I think finding a way of working is very personal. I don't know how much good any advice would be. My ability to actually get work done was greatly improved when I started using Scrivener (paid software) to organise my writing. Breaking the work down into small parts really helped me. I too often st...

I'm a writer. I've written quite a few short stories and a novel which I'm trying to rewrite into something that makes sense. I write for my job too, but that's copywriting mainly, not creative.

I've always found 'messy' girls attractive. Far more attractive than girls who spend ages painting their faces until they look like CGI and smell like some weird chemical-approximation of flowers. I just assume girls who don't bother much with personal hygiene have other things on their minds, which...

But once I met Beedle at a stables I cheered up and as the game progressed I found the humour was there. I wished Beedle would've had more to do though, I didn't find him very useful in that game. No, he doesn't. But it seems he has even less to do in WindWaker, he only ever seems to sell bait or p...

Yes, at 42 I can count the number of people in my life I consider friends on one hand. Actually I don't even need that hand. I have none. By friends I mean someone who would text or call me just to say 'how are you doing?' or 'want to do something?' I don't count my partner or her friends who are wh...

I'm growing up but I've always felt that I was behind my peers in that sense. I remember at school, when everyone hit puberty I became very withdrawn because I really felt like I was just getting the hang of being a kid and now everyone was too cool to 'play' and do anything I thought was fun. This ...

I think I'm nice, but people don't seem to like spending time with me so I do sometimes wonder if I'm just not very nice.

Yes, I used to do this a lot. Not so much anymore because I don't buy DVDs anymore. But when I was a film student I loved a good director commentary almost as much as the film. Particular favourites included Paul Thomas Andersons commentaries on Boogie Nights and Magnolia, Terry Gilliam's Fear and L...
