I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this project, but this video in particular is worth a watch.

Meredith Graves of the band Perfect Pussy:
(At 3:25)
“Coming to terms of the amount of space I take up in the world, which is also like a feminist can see too because we’re taught from birth to shrink ourselves, erasing fine lines and wrinkles, shrinking two sizes, making varicose veins disappear. And it’s like this language that wants women to not be visible.”

Hello standing ovation for Meredith Graves. 

Also, this:

“That’s pretty much the only time I feel really, really beautiful. When my circumstances are so strange that they allow me to see myself as a small component of a much bigger world.”

the garden state soundtrack was one of my most steadfast [+ melancholy] musical companions when i was 19. and if we’re being honest, i’ve never gotten tired of it. 
happily, the collection of tunes for wish i was here, follow-up to the first movie, looks to serve up much of the same. 
you can stream it here.
[and i audibly gasped to see jump, little children’s mexico on here — it was one of my most favorite of their songs + i haven’t heard it in years! i am having a moment right now, you guys]

Hello queue up soundtrack obsession.

This. Track. Is. Perfect. ttfkagb!

Sci-Fi, Neko Case, Kelly Hogan, feminism. My holy grail.

Hello I can now die happy.

Hello tickets to tonight’s show.

How have I lived in Chicago for over a year and seen almost zero live music? In Dallas I was at a show every weekend, my life revolved around the art and music community.

The change, I think, is reflective of my emotional/mental/whatever state of existence but I am determined to fix that. I’m slowly getting back to being myself and shaping my world as a reflection of what I love and what I’m inspired by.

Slowly but surely.
