Old Glory


A very good article on racism is located here. Racism is intolerable against any race, not just minority races. This is a message not often heard in today’s media.

Favorite quote: “It is difficult to be part of the only race for whom racial pride is a social taboo.”

Like woe! I’m seriously in arrears on this one!

I owe this one to kjillane from waaaay back in this post in her LJ. She tagged me, I postponed, then forgot. Sorry!

Rules: Pick seven songs that you're into right now, list them. Pick seven friends who have to repeat this process, list them.

Random order:

1. Such Great Heights - Iron and Wine
2. Just Because - Jane’s Addiction
3. We’re a Band - Audio Adrenaline
4. Girl, You’ll Be a Woman Soon - Urge Overkill (from Pulp Fiction)
5. Falling Is Like This- Ani Difranco
6. The Luckiest - Ben Folds
7. Youngstown - Bruce Springsteen

Does anyone else find it... embarrassing to list what they are listening to? I don’t know, it’s like my music tastes are almost kind of... private. Well, I don’t pretend to be a hipster, so. Yeah. Strange combo, I know. For those who thought they had a grasp on who I was based on my LJ stuff, I’d suggest a listen to all of these. When I read over it, it surprises even me that I listen to all this and like it!

I hate to pick, but I also hate to violate the “rules” listed above. I will offer a list of seven people who I would like to see do this so I could learn more about them, but there is absolutely NO obligation, ‘k? BTW, thunderslug, you are off the list because there is probably no likelihood I will have even heard ONE of your choices! I gotta broaden my horizons at a little slower pace than your list would provide! ;-) (Feel free anyway.)

Edit: Okay, duh. Saw Jim's list in Killjane's post. Uh yeah, never heard any of them and only heard of some of the artists! Primarily, I've heard of them from your previous posts!

Again, in random order:
1. brknconfidents (You HAVE to do it!)
2. zoomardav
3. schmimi
4. _aod
5. curious corax
6. arethusa
7. psychfringe
