"For me, it's real"

Say what you will about Russel Brand, I do like his attitude. He’s authentic and is saying something meaningful in an interview. He totally gets that he’s not the leader of a revolution, but also that he doesn’t have to act dumb because he’s an actor.
Check out the short piece on gawker about the interview.

Weirdly fitting words by Mark Sample:

“Low point” is the term for when the worst part of a disaster has come to pass. Our disasters increasingly have no low point.

After the low point of a disaster is reached, things begin to get better. When there is no clear low point, society endures chronic trauma.

Disasters with no clear low point: global warming, mass extinction, colony collapse disorder, ocean acidification, Fukushima.
