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.
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. â€œYou must be sad to risk your heart for
love to find youâ€.
I thought the line was
â€œYou must DECIDE to risk your heart for love
to find youâ€.
Also: the ghost of Dave Balfe.

which Tookie Williams’ face magically appeared
So there is balance in the universe.
But I wish somehow that it had been Dave
Such perfect synchronicities only exist in a world
where I’ve completely committed myself to
booze, rather than the half-arsed lazy mode I
I blame myself. A toasted Balfe face could have
been ours, if only I committed.
