CSS - Hangover
The new track from CSS is really goofy but catchy.
Estelle ft. Janelle Monae - Do My Thing
some Saturday evening music
This song is so tiny and good, this song makes me feel like I am seventeen and hopeful, this song makes me want to spend all spring driving around New Hampshire in my parents’ old car with the windows open
one time, when we all still lived in iowa, jess and i drove to ames on a weeknight to see thao play. i think this was pre-get down stay down. at the time we kept a wall of polaroids in our apartment so we asked thao to take a polaroid with us. she was so so nice.
thao & joanna dream teamin.
Shystie ft. Azealia Banks - Control It
feeling confused about some of the cultural motifs in this vid (bindis again?) but 100% in favor of Azealia Banks chomping on a gummy bear head.

FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS: A BENEFIT FOR A COMMUNITY MEMBER’S IMMIGRATION LEGAL FEES
With the recent executive order, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), thousands of DREAMers are applying for relief from deportation and work authorization. In addition to the cost of the application itself (almost $500), many are accruing additional legal fees for lawyer visits and court appearances.
One of our dear friends and community members is among those with mounting legal fees, and we are turning to our community to ask for support for someone who has given us so much. Please come out and join us for a fundraiser to help our friend pay their legal fees. All proceeds will be used to help pay our friend’s legal fees.

The Knife - Full of Fire
Music Video directed by Marit Ostberg
“The Knife won the Grammy award for Pop Group of the Year in 2003, but they boycotted the ceremony by sending two representatives of the Guerrilla Girls, with the number 50 written on their costumes, as a protest against male dominance in the music industry.”
The Knife’s forthcoming album, Shaking the Habitual, releases April 5, 2013.
Janet Jackson’s 1989 new jack swing album Rhythm Nation 1814 is what inspired Michael K. Williams to pursue a career in dance (and, later, acting).
