"Pink Matter (feat. André 3000)," Frank Ocean

Since you been gone
I been having withdrawals
You were such a habit to call
I ain’t myself at all had to tell myself naw
She’s better with some fella with a regular job
I didn’t wanna get her involved

That verse though. Perfection.

"Hurricane," Bob Dylan

That’s the story of the Hurricane
But it won’t be over till they clear his name
And give him back the time he’s done
Put him in a prison cell but one time he could-a been
The champion of the world.

Rest in Peace Hurricane Carter. A true champion, who comported himself with dignity in the face of a hateful, racist 20 year prison sentence. Keep fighting.

A Tooth For An Eye” deconstructs images of maleness, power and leadership. Who are the people we trust as our leaders and why? What do we have to learn from those we consider inferior? In a sport setting where one would traditionally consider a group of men as powerful and in charge, an unexpected leader emerges. A child enters and allows the men to let go of their hierarchies, machismo and fear of intimacy, as they follow her into a dance. Their lack of expertise and vulnerability shines through as they perform the choreography. Amateurs and skilled dancers alike express joy and a sense of freedom; There is no prestige in their performance. The child is powerful, tough and sweet all at once, roaring “I’m telling you stories, trust me”. There is no shame in her girliness, rather she possesses knowledge that the men lost a long time ago.
-The Knife

They are forgiven, on the strength of these good intentions, whatever violence they do to language, whatever excessive demands they make of credibility.

James Baldwin, “Everybody’s Protest Novel”

"East Coast Girl," Cayucas

The story of an East Coast girl 
Warm in her winter clothes waiting for the sun to finally go down 
Oh she’s wondering what happened to that California sunshine she used to know 
She used to know

I guess it can’t be too often that two people can laugh and make love, too, make love because they are laughing, laugh because they’re making love. The love and the laughter come from the same place: but not many people go there.
— James Baldwin, If Beale Street Could Talk
