M.I.A Born Free

New video/ first single off M.I.A's untitled album, out in June.
It's not as progressive/out there as Gaga, but it's still worth a mention...
Just joking.
Politics is real. Knowledge is power. Triangular shoulders (which were Klaus Nomi's thang way before) wigs and big glasses do not tell the truth, do not educate and do not change the world.
I respect what gaga is doing for gender/sexuality, but her idea's/video's are too saturated in style and eye candy, that the 12 year old girls watching them don't notice anything but the crazy costumes. It's a form of hypnotism. The people who see her significance and titillations are older, high brow, educated theorists. In essence, the converted.

This is an interesting article about the Lady gaga Telephone clip

(just cut and paste. sorry!)

SWANS-I'll Cry For You/Raping A Slave

I think i'll spend the next few blogs on posting my favourite bands/songs from my favourite era/approach to/of music.
I'll start with SWANS.
This might get boring for you if you don't like loud, obnoxious, blood stained, metallic, shrilling, guttural sounding things

Sara Sohn/Vegan Marshmallows (Sweet and Sarah)


Sarah Sohn is my hero.
She makes vegan marshmallows and my oh my, what sweet, fluffy, heavenly marshmallows she makes. People often ask me what I miss most about being vegan (uh, nothing. Why would I miss partaking in pillaging the earth, killing creatures, wasting water, etc) . Is it the cheese (oh, I make my own ricottage cheese and it's pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey-where-the-tail-is-meant-to-go, good!)....Is it the...(I cut in abruptly), No fool, it's the marshmallows.
Circa 2001, right before i became vegan I was a candy addict. I had a serious problem, seriously. Anyways, I would always have marshmallows and a lighter on me. I would sit at the back of a car, or be wherever I was, with a lighter in my hand, and burn marshmallows into melty heavens and eat them....
My next mission is to make a vegan marshmallow (wo)man. i would snuggle with it every night, without doubt.
