my turn to bring a new shit

dark and it's heavy

show me if you're ready

this is it

my turn to bring a new sound

and it's heavy.

Show me if you're ready

this is it

my turn to bring a...

Oh, hey.

- You want me to Chuck in some gas?

- Oh, yeah. Yeah.

- Hello?

- Jon, Jon, Jon.

Hey, Sharon. Babe. Um, look, uh,

now's not actually such a good time.

"Sharon". 'Babe', my arse.

No, it's not a good time, is it, Jon?


I've had the publisher's legal team

chasing me all week, darling.

They called me in the supermarket.

They called me in the middle of

my daughter's remedial gymnastics...


Oh. Um...

Jon, my love, Jon, my darling,

where is that fucking book?!

Yeah, no, I'm... it's coming along.

Um, I'm working on it.

I'm working on it now, actually.

Cool... hey, thanks.

Agents, eh?

"A shit sandwich without the bread"?

What kind of feedback is that?

Like imagine a sandwich

with just the shit bits...

- Yeah.

- ..And no bread.

- Oh.

- It's pretty shit.

Oh, cool! Hey, thanks, man.

Thanks for, you know,

thanks for clarifying that.

You're welcome.

Let me tell you

what it really is, ok?

It's a conspiracy to make me conform
