75 years ago, on this date, Billie Holiday recorded a song that Time Magazine would call song of the century: Strange Fruit, a song written about a lynching in the South. 

Holiday first performed the song at Cafe Society in 1939. She said that singing it made her fearful of retaliation but, because its imagery reminded her of her father, she continued to sing the piece making it a regular part of her live performances. Because of the poignancy of the song, Josephson drew up some rules: Holiday would close with it; the waiters would stop all service in advance; the room would be in darkness except for a spotlight on Holiday’s face; and there would be no encore. During the musical introduction, Holiday would stand with her eyes closed, as if she were evoking a prayer.


Jon Stewart and Matt Taibbi discuss the different treatment afforded to ‘street’ based drug users and white-collar criminals profiting from the drug trade.

Joe and I took a trip to Denver, CO Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday to see some of our favorite artists. On Monday night, we waited in line for an hour in the cold with short sleeves on to see The Underachievers, Denzel Curry, and Azizi Gibson. This is he and I after the show. He went absolutely nuts; and I’m so glad he had so much fun. I don’t really remember this photo because we were both still extremely high on both the dankest (legal) weed ever and the incredible energy from the crowd ajd performances. It was one of the best nights of our lives, and both of ours first official hip hop concert. I had so much fun and I look forward to heading back to Colorado with him some time soon.

Werewolf by Cocorosie 

I don’t mean to close the door
But for the record my heart is sore
You blew through me like bullet holes
Left stains on my sheets and stains
On my soul

And “bitch” is attacking women for their right to call you on it.  (via madgay)
