Kendrick Lamar – Fuck Your Ethnicity


Kendrick Lamar – Rigamortus

Both tracks from Kendrick’s new album Section.80 out now on Top Dawg Entertainment, and it has been in heavy rotation for the couple of weeks. If you’re into rappidy rapps and don’t know who Kendrick Lamar is, please get familiar! Can’t believe this is his third album. He’s performing somewhere in the five boroughs this weekend!


Sparklehorse – Getting It Wrong
Dreamt for Light Years in the Belly of a Mountain (Astralwerks, 2006)

set your woods on fire
hide up in the spires
the flames kept dancing higher

they’re playing our song
they’re playing our song
they’re getting it wrong

ophelia in the creek
caught up in the sticks
somethings can’t be fixed

(3x) they’re playing our song

Howard Zinn dies at 87

A real American (Brooklyn!) hero has left us. I dated a girl who had a brain crush on Dr. Zinn, so I was exposed to some articles, and People’s History‘s significance cannot be understated.

“From the start, my teaching was infused with my own history. I would try to be fair to other points of view, but I wanted more than ‘objectivity’; I wanted students to leave my classes not just better informed, but more prepared to relinquish the safety of silence, more prepared to speak up, to act against injustice wherever they saw it. This, of course, was a recipe for trouble.” – from You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train
