Is everyone clear on what’s going on in Russia with LGBTQ peoples. CAUSE YOU SHOULD BE. What’s going on is absolutely horrifically disgusting and it turns my stomach. Russia is home to people just like you and me except their government is telling them how they can and cannot live and who they can and cannot LOVE. This is heartbreaking. Ask yourself how you can help our Russian brothers and sisters. Lets not be quiet about this. We can all help.

Ways you can help:


VISIT allout.org This website will inform you of the chaos in Russia and other areas of the world where being gay is a crime. Help allout.org by donations and/or signing they’re demands to governments across the world for EQUALITY and PEACE.

Beyoncé's super secret album just dropped this morning, causing quite a stir. In one of the songs, “Flawless” she samples Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's TEDx talk on feminism. In the song she says:

We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller

We say to girls – you can have ambition, but not too much

You should aim to be successful but not too successful otherwise you will threaten the man

Because I am female I am expected to aspire to marriage

I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important

A marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support

But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same?

We raise girls to see each other as competitors not for jobs or for accomplishments,

Which I think can be a good thing

But for the attention of men

We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are

Feminist: A person who believes in the economic, social and political equality of the sexes.

If you haven’t yet, check out Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s interview on Fresh Air for her newest book Americanah. The book also made the NPR best list for 2013.

Added bonus: book critic Maureen Corrigan’s review of the book.

Majical Cloudz - Savage.


This is the music video for the song ‘Savage’. We wanted to make something simple, so my friend Igor came over and we shot it really quickly. He edited it and sent a version of it to me later that night. I tried my hardest to write the lyrics out in time with when they appear in the song. This didn’t work out very successfully so Igor edited the footage a little bit in order to keep the pace.

I respect this duo so much and think they deserve a hell of a lot more accreditation than they’ve received this year.

To me, Majical Cloudz is the epitome when it comes to the successful combination of music and poetry. Thier album, Impersonator, is a flawless example of this. The video for this track is also a simple, but neat concept.

All in all, spend some time with this band when you need to take a deep breath and unwind. They’ll work wonders.
