"What’s your greatest struggle right now?"
"The death of my husband."
"How’d you meet?"
"I was at a party on Fire Island, and this man walked in. I was about 25 at the time and recently divorced. I thought: ‘He looks interesting, I should get to know him.’ We ended up talking all night long. The next morning we were engaged, and two weeks later we were married."
"So what did he say when he asked you to marry him?"
"He didn’t really ask. He just said: ‘Let’s get married.’"
"I’m a traffic cop. It’s a job. Somebody’s got to do it. I don’t even represent myself when I’m working. If I was representing myself, I’d let everyone off with a warning. I represent a system. Did I design the system? No. I just enforce it. It’s not for me to decide the system. We elect the people who decide the system. When I write a ticket, everyone tells me a reason that they don’t deserve it. If I gave a warning to everyone with a reason, I wouldn’t give any tickets, and the system wouldn’t work. I don’t get any joy by giving a ticket. And I’m not upset if you beat it in court. It’s not personal. It’s my job."
"Before I entered seminary, I fell in love with God. A few months into seminary, I fell in love with philosophy. Two years into seminary, I fell in love with a girl."
When I was at Frequency Festival this year I thought that I’ve seen Dennis from Refused at the backstage while The Ting Things gig and I was waiting for Rise Against. Weird feeling. Sadly, it wasn’t him.
Edit. // I checked it out on the official Frequency Festival site. It WAS him. I saw a little % of Refused. I still can’t believe it.
me and the best mom in the universe before the gubler-double-feauture of “suburban gothic” and “life after beth”
