Alex messing up while presenting
“To be a singer/songwriter from England is to stand in the backg—the shadow of David Robert Jones...or as we’ve come to know him, David Bowie. Our next performer is going to pay t--, these glasses are doing wonders here. Our next performer is going to pay tribute to one of England’s greatest songwriters. With his personal friend and producer Nile Rodgers, here is Academy Award nominee, Lady Gaga.”

5. WHEN SHE WAS VERY INTO INTERIOR DESIGN
emilymilligan: Found the most exquisite chair today, matches the living room beautifully. It was the missing piece we needed!!
emilymilligan: I could shop for frames for the rest of my life. We keep this love in a photograph, right? Lol!
emilymilligan: What colour should we paint downstairs? Would love to hear your suggestions, you creative bunch.
emilymilligan: There is just something about antique furniture. So very classic.
6. WHEN SHE LET HER FANGIRL OUT
emilymilligan: Ryan Gosling is really something nice to look at isn't he?
C&TA: When you say that you're referring to job positions in the arts, right?
AM: Exactly. We're told of becoming doctors, lawyers, accountants, professors, engineers. All amazing professions, but they're at least in the directory. What about the boy who just wants to be an artist? The girl who dreams of becoming a ballerina? The boy who'd like to be a pianist? It's an internal struggle to realize that the path you want to take is not a path that's even defined in the accredited institution you go to in order to further your education.
C&TA: So what happens then?
AM: You push past the notion that what you're doing is deviating and you do it anyway. Some kids won't ever push themselves that far because they feel like it's a lost cause and personally, I don't want them to feel like it's a lost cause. I travel on the notion that you've got to put your all into something before deciding it's not for you. When I decided to do the whole music thing people told me it was a waste of time, but I took everything I had and I put my all in to my music and I can tell you genuinely that I'd still be happy in the smallest of pubs playing my music. That's my happiness, whether 5 people or 15,000 people are listening.
C&TA: Somewhere there's an accountant who's dying to be a ballerina.
AM: There probably is.
C&TA: What would you say needs to be done?
AM: More resources to try out the artistic mediums, more school programs that are infused with the arts. There's a severe lack of funding and a disinterest in trying to figure it out. I'm working with some schools now and it's difficult because every higher up has their own higher up but at least some conversations are happening.
C&TA: Usually the problem becomes money. Go to school, get a proper job, make money instantly. Work on your craft, continue working on it, success isn't imminent and money tends to come later.
AM: You're right. Money is important for survival. You need a base salary of some sort that will bring in an income and allow you to live in a way that fits you best but you should be able to decide that. Sometimes you make sacrifices for that, a mate of my dad's went back to school to do something in radiology because where he was working wasn't helping to make ends meet for his family. That's brave. I'm talking more about options. There should be the information available and taught to at least explore all your options.
C&TA: Couldn't agree more. Thanks for talking to us, Alex.
AM: Thanks for having me.
alex: it's alright to die cause death is the only thing you haven't tried but just for tonight hold on
alex: when my hair's all but gone and my memory fades and the crowds don't remember my name when my hands don't play the same strings the same way i know you will still love me the same
alex: friends should sleep in other beds and friends shouldn't kiss me like you do, and i know that there's a limit to everything but my friends won't love me like you
alex: i don't get waves of missing you anymore they're more like tsunami tides in my eyes
alex: you can fit me inside the necklace you got when you were sixteen next to your heartbeat where i should be keep it deep within your soul
alex: THEY SAY IM UP AND COMIN LIKE IM FUCKIN IN AN ELEVATOR
