“If they’re not going to make a distinction between Muslims and violent extremists, then why should I take the time to distinguish between decent fearful white people and racists.”—Here’s a little nugget of sanity from one Aasif Mandvi that I so very much appreciate. I think it envelopes many of the ideology conflicts we have in this country, where many of our problems stem from. The Rally may be only one day in Washington, but I’m hoping that it sets a tone for the up coming election and our country as a whole.
Grouplove was an opener for Two Door Cinema Club last night. Their dancey, Americana sound put joy into my heart. Of course I bought their EP, and I plan on putting it in the WERW library. I certainly can’t wait to hear more from them!
Sitting across from my classroom listening to this song, prepping for my interview with Two Door Cinema Club this afternoon. Tune in to WERW at 3:30 to hear answers to questions such as, “Whose cat is on your album at?”
Waiting alone at a bus stop, listening to this song. I have the unnerving urge to brush my teeth. I just want to be at my apartment, in bed. It’s past midnight, and campus is dark and tired. Oh, this this time tomorrow.
Acoustic covers of Top 40 hits. Loved them then, love them now.
Also, I remember slow dancing to the original version of this song with my first boyfriend at a school dance. How fucked up is that? I mean, why would you play a song at a middle school sock hop about domestic violence and “doin’ you right”? Seriously.
