Last time we checked in on Claire Boucher’s tumblr we were posting her brilliant rant against sexism in the music industry, but today’s update on Grimes is decidedly more lighthearted.

It’s her tour rider, an admitted work in progress, but so far it’s pretty fantastic. For starters, it’s incredibly eco-friendly. Grimes asks for reusable plates, no plastic or styrofoam cups or containers and a water cooler or pitchers instead of disposable bottles.

She doesn’t want candy, either, and says that someone on her tour is deathly allergic to peanuts, so they’ll need to know what’s back there before arriving. But then comes the kicker: “If possible, one cute bulldog, french bulldog, pug or pomeranian (or other cute animal, such as a pekanese) to visit and hang out but who gets to leave before too much noise is heard so that she does not hurt their ears. It is important that if said animal visits they have a safe home to return to. lol”

In short: Grimes cares about the environment, her touring party and super cute animals. Brilliant. Never change.
