CX KiDTRONiK's 'Krak Attack 2: Ballad of Elli Skiff' is noisy, overwhelming, and kind of genius. #SoundCheck

I was laid up in a hospital bed hooked up to a morphine drip the first time I ever heard Death Grips. Though Exmilitary has maintained a regular position on my playlist, it's taken a year and a half for someone to match that feeling of exhilaration, confusion, and total sensory overload. Brooklyn's…

Sheila and are are seeing other people and doing our own thing.

Sheila is the name I gave my phone.

Living out in the country is what I mean when I say that my phone have started seeing other people. I think it's good for us, but my phone isn't handling it too well. My phone has decided to eat all the pictures on my memory card. Actually it has made the card inaccessible. I think it's being childish, but what can I say? Obviously I would feel that way.

Lord of the Flies a.k.a my misadventures with a composting toilet

Spring had sprung and brough with it hundreds of baby flies.

I think I did something wrong. UGH

OK, as with all things BIG JOY, I have been learning as I go.

The Sun-Mar is a a dream. It is coast guard approved...blah di blah... but I still have flies.

I think I'm doing something incorrectly, and now I'm trying to find the cure.

I've looked at the trouble shooting guide and it says…

A Poem I wrote: No Justice No Peace

No Justice No Peace

By Talisha Harrison Copyright 3/26/12

When they were captured, sold, and brought over in chains to be auctioned off as property

They cried “No Justice No Peace.”

When they were strange fruit, hanging in the trees

They cried “No…

Mourning The Death of God

It wont be too soon that I'll forget these past few months. This age of 23, leaving behind my teen-hood, and entering the obscurity of illusory "adulthood". Never before has life been so unpredictable, yet so banal in the same sequence. I will not forget the day a decade ago when I gave my life to Christ, in the efforts of saving my soul. The…

Go see “Born A Crime” at The Culture Project in SOHO, now. It’s a new show by Trevor Noah—South African born comic with a unique perspective on being biracial and a kid during the apartheid--that is unabashedly funny and asks some hard-hitting questions about the boxes we allow ourselves to be put in.

UK's Electronic/Funk/Punk Spektrum is keeping the soul of disco alive on “Ambush in Istanbul.” #SoundCheck

The 2000's was a decade full of “disco.” The omni-present quasi-ironic finger quotes made a generation of kids raised on the anti-disco of bands like Nirvana able to appreciate the unabashedly cheesy pop of 70's disco. But over the past few years the ironic finger quotes have evaporated leaving behind just disco. Regular old disco. Not ironic. Fun, funky, and as sexy as ever. And British band Spektrum are definitely keeping that spirit of old-school Donna Summer…
