Here are a few randoms that caught my eye this week.
- This was an interesting article about the far-reaching fallout of the recent Lance Armstrong developments. I do not have any tattoos although I have come close a few times. Apart from a family member’s name, I don’t think I have found is a symbol/word/picture that I can commit to. I found it interesting how these people viewed their body art when the LiveStrong association became tainted by association.
- I came across this one on a sisteren’s facebook page. While the Harlem Shake viral video phenomenon has been rather interesting, I was struck that there were so many people that don’t know the original Harlem Shake dance. Apparently someone else felt this way and went to the streets of Harlem to ask Harlem natives what they think about the videos baring their neighbourhood’s name. It is funny to watch but it provides current proof that appropriation is so very real.
- Any Fire Stirrers in Philly should go check out this exhibit of costumes worn by the Supreme’s. I would argue them to be one of the most significant music groups in US music history and I would like to personally thank them for influencing some of my favourite songs and groups. The costumes are awesome. Can you tell that I like glitter J?
- Last but surely not least is this new Amnesty International petition to put sexual and reproductive health and rights on the global agenda. Sign on! Take part! My Body! My Rights
Have a great weekend!
Erykah Badu is a BOSS. Rebel, artist, talented, fly as hell, general bad-ass, what more can I say?
1. Other side of the Game.
Brother’s got a complex occupation. How many conversations have I had in my life about this kind of love affair?
2. Bag Lady
One of my all time favorites. Still trying to lay down some of my bags. I love the local TV quality of this video.
3. Love of my life.
Beautiful love song. Back when Common was wearing crochet vests 🙂
4. Call Tyrone.
This song gets me hyped! lol I had a friend back in the day who wanted to enter the local queen show and I told her that she should sing this song as her performing talent.
