America, from UK’s perspective seems politically fucked up right now, is there anything specifically concerning you?
It feels pretty surreal right now honestly, with what’s happening here. Until it’s all said and done it won’t have hit me or anyone else. I’m always going to do what I want to do regardless of what’s happening. I think it is important, this is the first election in my lifetime where I’ve paid attention, normally it just feels very out of my hands.
The powers that be decide all of what happens long before it’s ever presented to us. For some reason I feel like this election is a little different. I feel like it’s good to pay attention but not to be fully consumed by it, what’s going to happen will happen and the universe is going to do what it’s gong to do.
It will be interesting to see what kind of art is made when we get over the hump, when people start to revolt. A revolution needs to happen, if Donald Trump gets into office that will be the start of it. Boom. He’s in office and the American public finally have a reason to fucking revolt. What did Thomas Jefferson say? Every 20 years, in order to maintain freedom, the American public needs to riot, needs to revolt and there needs to be a revolution. I think what’s happening right now could lead us toward that and towards an artistic and intellectual revolution.
