in this video of a John Maus interview, the way he talks almost reminds me of myself making an obssessive monologue to a friend or someone about concepts I find fascinating but they don’t care about and they probably don’t understand what I’m saying, and yet I don’t care and still keep going.

“..you know what I’m saying, right?”
