Today’s #vss theme for #ThePush from me and @goosefat101 is ‘outrage’. Which I seem to feel a lot at the moment... currently mostly with the very concept of ‘per word’ writing rates.

Madre mía, acabo de ver #ThePush y me quedo loquísimo con cómo es la gente. Hasta dónde llegamos para complacer a los demás. WTF.

After watching @DerrenBrown new @Netflix_CA special #sacrifice #thepush I’ve learnt one thing. Never audition for a tv doc that he’s involved in. Complete mindfucks! Well done sir!
