Cry Like A Ghost
Pretty psyched for tomorrow night’s Passion Pit concert @ The Paramount.
In The Water
A much-needed take a break from a crazy work day/dance at your desk song from me to you.
Trapped in the Tumblr Closet: Macklemore
Macklemore is using the spoken word to create change. With his immaculate blonde quiff, wistful blue eyes, and sartorial style, this Seattle-born rapper (real name Ben Haggerty) is sincere in his songs and urgent in their meanings. With help from producer Ryan Lewis, he’s putting the spotlight on addiction, civil rights, loyalty, love, and pride in a humble, genuine, relatable way. This stuff is socially conscious rap at its best. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ first studio album, The Heist, is out today — premiering at No. 1 on the iTunes store.
I saw Macklemore perform almost three years ago, when he opened for the Blue Scholars at The Showbox. He blew me away then and with this new album does so yet again.

Thanks, Talib, for what will go down as one of the best concerts I’ve EVER seen.
Ani just gets being angry.
Currently listening to this song on repeat, dreaming of summer’s warm weather, and getting more and more psyched about this year’s Capitol Hill Block Party.
