something’s happened this morning where it’s like i finally got my mojo back and feel totally chill about where i’m at. it felt like the last few years since my best friend left i’ve been living outside of my body but today i finally feel like i’m the same person i used to be. and i love my friends and family so much and i’m so glad that so many of them are still with me.
fuuu the article i wrote about SNSD has had over 17,000 views in like three days.
This is a great piece from The Guardian about how music and culture are combining to combat brute force politics.
"Our job as musicians should be to celebrate the good and do something about fixing the bad," said Kina, who some have called Okinawa’s answer to Bob Marley. "That’s why I hate the military bases here, but I love Americans."
The spirit of resistance pioneered by Kina is to be found in the more eclectic music of Tatsumi Chibana, a quietly spoken 33-year-old university graduate and perhaps the most visible of Okinawa’s new generation of rebel artists, fusing traditional sounds with rock, reggae and hip-hop.
It goes on to cover some interesting points on Okinawa`s cultural waves. Be sure to take a couple of minutes to watch the video interview with Lisa Nagamine.
