    Loved this. Don't want to examine it logically or narratively too much because it might fall apart, but it works wonders as a nightmare fable on the nature of relationships - also, the weird Brave New World-esque fairy tale dystopian society the story takes place in is super-evocative.

    Impossible. Meaningless.

    Can you expand on that? I love Huxley so I'm interested in your thoughts.

    Pretty jelly of this guy's tattoo.

    Quote Quoting Donald Glover
    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    Huge hicky. Also, I'm curious to know how the upside down America tattoo ends.

    And that must be the gayest thing I've ever said on Matchcut. At least Top 10.
