I love it so much
He talked about her a bit on the last Fundamentalists podcast (44 - A Neurotics Guide to Perversion):
(after mentioning a Jez quote from Peep Show: "I don't want to tempt fate, but I think everything is going to be totally great forever."):
12:44 "I don't want to say anything, but I actually had that thought when I was in Palm Springs with Grace, and I wasn't with her, I was just in the bathroom, and we were having a great time and I was using the restroom and I looked at myself in the mirror like, "Wait. Do I just get to be happy now? And then I was like 'ah, nah, it's coming, it's coming. I'm waiting with bated breath'. But anyway."
-He's just! so! happy!
18:10 "As the type of person with followers-I also have been that for 6 years now-and when it comes to the commodification of my pastimes, I have stopped giving a shit. And I happen to be with someone who I think also doesn't give a shit. And now it's like if--it's a double-edged sword too because I don't want to be the person who hides things either, and then when I show them, of course there's a bunch of comments and that part's cool for like a second, but then it's very like 'ok, let's shut the door', but there's no... I don't know what the balance is there. It's like an impulse to be like, 'this is fun! let me show people!' and then there's another impulse that's like, 'no!' There's no win, really."
(not about Grace but still interesting):
34:55 "I feel like my friendships with the other Folks have grown exponentially since commodifying it, so I can't-- We weren't all hanging out all the time before the Valleyfolk happened. We would see each other every now and then, it'd be different relationships with everybody. And now it's like a very good time, but it's also-- I don't think that time of closeness would have happened without the commodification."
