Keebo were one of my favourite finds last year. Their set at The Windmill (in July, supporting Las Kellies and Skinny Girl Diet) was majorly lush— a steady, meditative wall of cooed harmonies and dreamy, overlapping guitar lines— and totally unexpected given the night’s majority punk line-up. I’m expecting big moves from them this year.
Re the video: I guess its vaguely problematic, but I’m giving them a pass because a) they’re young, and b) it comes off as benevolently aiming-for-worshipful. See Gwen and co’s loathsome, cartoon Injun-style appropriation for an example of how to not pull this off.
angel haze is SO good live and natalia kills is a badass
Zinesters, QZFL espouses DIY activism over corporate sponsorsed, state-sanctioned (non)action. In this spirit, I’d like to say a big fuck you to San Francisco Pride, for shameful lack of solidarity with Bradley Manning and for denying queers and press access to public meetings. This is yet another example of the insidious corporatization and pwning of queer social justice movements. Shout-out to Queer Strikefor opposing SF Pride’s state-appeasing hate agenda.
I’d like to see a daily/weekly Beth Ditto chat show happen. That kinda Oprah W-level wisdom is what the world needs to hear right now.
Brother, did you think the M in FTM stood for misogyny?
reblogging from myself cuz i wanted to give this poem a little more attention in that
1. this amazing poet and his duo, Dark Matter, came to do an event at my school and they are two of the most amazing people and amazing artists and amazing activists I have ever seen. they did their art and then we talked queer activism and rocketship activism vs. backyard activism and how to be too radical for the world but still be safe and not burn out and they are like wow but like wow though.
2.this piece is one of the most humbling and honest pieces I have ever heard and I cried the first time I saw it and it means a lot to me.
3. people often reblog pieces that say amazing things but this is also one of the most solid pieces of writing I’ve seen out of CUPSI 2013 so mad props to that
4. plz watch this especially if u r a white trans man cuz we need this kind of stuff sometimes and look, a check-yourself that we can watch all on our owns without even having to offend someone first.
Some snaps I took at the Ray Harryhausen exhibition at London Film Museum. Last year? 2011? Memory fails me. RIP Ray, you unicorn of a man.
