Two Drunken Writers, 3am; A Warning To The Children: This Is How You’ll End Up

December 15th, 2005 | brainjuice, people I know

Kieron Gillen, drunken games/music journalist:
Half-way through uploading Mint Royale/Lauren
Laverne’s “Don’t Falter” for Laurenn.

Warren Ellis, drunken funnybook hack:
I love that.

Gillen:
I rambled off some drunken notes on it
like most REALLY HAPPY SONGS its got a core of
sadness too it. It’s what stops you choking. And,
with a personality as visible as Lauren’s, you
can’t help but be happy for her that she’s that
happy. “You must be sad to risk your heart for
love to find you”.

Ellis:
I thought the line was

“You must DECIDE to risk your heart for love
to find you”.

Also: the ghost of Dave Balfe.

Gillen:
You know, every time I write an analysis of a pop
song there’s a lyric I’ve got entirely wrong which
RUINS MY LIFE.

THE FUCKS!

Ellis:
And yet Patton just told me that on eBay right
now someone is selling a piece of toast upon
which Tookie Williams’ face magically appeared
this morning.

So there is balance in the universe.

But I wish somehow that it had been Dave
Balfe’s face.

Gillen:
Such perfect synchronicities only exist in a world
where I’ve completely committed myself to
booze, rather than the half-arsed lazy mode I
find myself.

I blame myself. A toasted Balfe face could have
been ours, if only I committed.
