don't trust the press

When you walk past the Rot Corner and can’t smell anything, but can’t tell if you’ve just become so accustomed to the stench of Death that it doesn’t register to your nose anymore

Wow. They seriously only trust themselves to be themselves with each other. They obviously don't trust the press or maybe even Starz or their handlers. When they have control of what they are asked, the guards are down.

I know. I don’t really know what to think about that but it sure is interesting. 

What Happened
  • Hillary Clinton: This is what happens in George Orwell’s classic novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, when a torturer holds up four fingers and delivers electric shocks until his prisoner sees five fingers as ordered. The goal is to make you question logic and reason and to sow mistrust toward exactly the people we need to rely on: our leaders, the press, experts who seek to guide public policy based on evidence, ourselves.
  • Me: What... book did you read?
If I have learned anything in life, it is that we are to keep moving, keep trying—as long as we breathe! If we do, we will be surprised at how much more can still be done.

Just a quick reminder that this process isn’t for us.

It’s not supposed to be interesting to us or fun for us. This process isn’t for the fans - this process is for the public, and also through that, for Louis as well.

Everything is a blip in the public. People who read tabloids know not everything is accurate. But what won’t be a blip is that the name Louis Tomlinson is actually a name they can associate with a face.

I know this is boring and sometimes yucky, but no matter how the rest of the break goes, we will have Louis and the other boys back in June, and Louis will have his name known likely in both the U.S. and UK, and perhaps throughout most parts of the world.
