went to the vigil for anti-prop 8 support tonight at city hall. wish id done more during the election than just pass on a few emails and vote. i realized last week how incredibly important this all is, and im really glad i went tonight. it was just amazing to stand outside with an entire community, and listen to these incredible speeches about overcoming discrimination, never stopping the fight for our rights, and treating everyone (even prop-8) supporters with respect and tolerance – we need to remind the world that we are one and the same. when a group of people takes away the rights of some; they take away the freedom of all.
oh hello loyal reader (val). here’s a treat for you: New MIA: SUS (Save Ur Soul)
(ill ignore the use of the word “ur” for “your”, Maya, but know youre on thin ice.)
everyone loves to compare santogold to mia. i do not. both, however, happen to rock.
from Santogold’s mixtape with Diplo (yeah philly love!), Top Ranking, here’s santi’s Get It Up (Radioclit Mix feat. M.I.A. and Gorilla Zoe).
im hoping they collaborate more, and with the whole philly / diplo / spank rock connection, maybe ill get my wish…
lykke li – little bit
discovered lykke back in april, and have been obsessed ever since. understated, playful, and absolutely brilliant. love those swedes.
yeasayer – 2080
when i was looking for an apt here back in march, this one girl who’s place i looked at in the marina. very sweet girl, kenyon alum, totally marina. she was funny, though – she had just moved out of a loft in soma where she was living with her hipster friends, and she was like, i go to the yeasayers! im indie! and of course i had no idea who the yeasayers were at this point. but to the point: this song is fantastic. layered, textured, syth-laden… just gorgeous.
