Gay Marriage In The United States

So, on the 26th of June, 2015 the United States Supreme Court ruled that the bans on gay marriage were ‘unconstitutional’ and legalized it nationwide. 

To me, this is amazing. When I was in high school we learned about the civil rights movement for African Americans. My history teacher Mr. Heagle said that the next civil rights movement would be for gay rights. And he was…well, right. 

As someone who’s best friend from middle school recently came out as bisexual and apologized for it because our religion opposes the idea of same sex couples, I applaud this historic moment. I don’t want her to feel unwanted or feel as though she has less rights than someone who is attracted to the opposite sex. She doesn’t deserve that, and you, the gay, pansexual, asexual, transgender, bisexual, lesbian person who may or may not be reading this, you don’t deserve that either. 

I could go into a whole discussion as to why we shouldn’t use the bible of the Christian people to make our laws and back them up with concrete historical and theological facts, but I won’t. 

I’m not going to argue with anyone. All I need to say is that we are one step closer to the thing that our ancestors were aiming for when they sailed away from Europe to build this country; Freedom and Equality. 

And besides the fact that my mama taught me to be kind to all people no matter what they looked like or based on religion or sexual preference, I like to think that the Land of the Free means everyone. 

Everyone.

Hit The ‘Playback’ For Playback

I swear. I stumbled upon their teaser completely by accident. It was the best accident I’ve had this month.

Especially since the last one today ended with a glass sliver in my hand.

This is Playback, from Clear Company with their debut single, “Playback.” I’ve already chosen my bias…Woolim! The girl with the yellow suspenders.

Watch the music video here:

 

Steve Daly, who has worked with artists such as Christina Aguilara, P!nk, and One Direction produced this amazing single.

Woolim was on the Mnet show, “I Can See Your Voice,” which is what many of the commenters on YouTube seem to remember her from.

Jhameel: Mind Over Matter

A couple days ago I received an email from Jhameel, asking if I would cover his latest single, “Mind Over Matter.”

Well of COURSE I’m going to.

In the email he described the song as,

“Mind Over Matter”- a lush, ethereal pop anthem seething with dark, seductive imagery. The song deals with the corrupt sexuality and loneliness of modern existence inspired by my new life here in Los Angeles.

My hope is to inspire my fans to embrace their emotions of insecurity and doubt.

In the Facebook post he shared with the world, he went a little more in depth, describing a conversation with his brother,

Life is not as black and white as I once thought it was. I was traveling in Thailand when I said this to my brother Adrian. He told me to “take pride in navigating the Sea of Gray” -the uncomfortable truths in life that are difficult to discern as “black” or “white”. The events in my past that I thought were unfair, my fears and doubts, even my flaws and insecurities. In this new era of music, I want to expose all of me, both the good and bad, and in acceptance learn to navigate my own Sea of Gray.

I hope you enjoy the song as much as I do. Lyrics are posted below the video:

 

It’s mind over matter but
I can see it all through the eyes of god

It’s still mind over matter but
I can feel it all through an empty heart

Late at night I’m touching myself
and I just need you to help
cause I can’t take anymore

I’m living in waking hell
only memory sacred still
girl help me lose myself
I won’t make it

step in my beat
you can feel it like heat
spreading like a stain in a diamond sea
just a memory
is that what you wanna be
feeling like hell in a sunlit breeze

board the airplane
and I’m telling more lies
looking at the clouds as they mimic our life
then I saw it
just a hint of the knife
lick off the blood from the ominous rise

back in LA
and I’m feeling your eyes
hiding in the corridor running from the light
then I say it
cause the truth cuts deep
everything I lost is everything you need

K-Indie Picks 6.16.15

Ah, such sweet relief! Just got the confirmation email about my airline ticket!

I’M COMING, CALI! WAIT FOR MEEEE!

On the other hand, it’s K-Indie Tuesday! Hooray! Well, it was, YESTERDAY. But I’m still going to bring it to you. (Which was when the first few lines of this article was written)

I must inform you though, I’m going through a lot of stress with helping plan the EYK tour and planning my own trip to Cali for #KCON2015.

So much so I just suffered a several minute long pseudo seizure. To be quite honest, I don’t know if I’ll be on tomorrow or Friday.

I promise that I will TRY, but I cannot promise that it will happen. So if you don’t see anything new for the rest of the week, I apologize.

Two videos this week! One you’ve already seen but I don’t give a shit cuz From The Airport FUCKINGĀ ROCKS!

It’s From The Airport X Gyuri of KARA, with “The Little Prince.” Which is glorious. That is all.
