Today I am thinking of women too often ignored or even hurt by the feminist movement. Trans* women, women of color, disabled women, fat women, queer women, elderly women, poor women, women in prison, women who are sex workers, women who are undocumented, women who are more than one of the above. Today is your day, too. I celebrate you and your strengths.
“'There's no need for heartbreak warfare. It's called 'I love you' — 'I love you too'. 'I need more love' — 'You got more love', and you can get through life like that. Shouldn't you just on days where you want more love be like 'I had a bad dream that you were sleeping around, it's really irrational, but just love me extra today'. Why can't we just have this thing where you just say 'Just love me extra today'. If I was with somebody and they said 'Love me extra today', I would love them extra forever.'”—John Mayer, Atlanta, 2010. (via lookandlisteng)
ya kno john green books can be really poetic and meaningful and stuff but if you frame them in the context of real life it’s like wow if i knew a teenager this pretentious in person i would not hesitate to smack em upside the head
So as you might know, I’m Kyle (aka DON KONGO why did I choose that name? long story!) and I released an album yesterday, Brilliant Liars. It would mean a lot to me if you gave it a chance, even if you try three songs and hate it! (All the songs are vastly different, though—if you don’t like one, do try one more elsewhere in the album.) I don’t have an incentive—I can’t pay you for listening, nor would I want to.
I make my music, I like to think, to try to speak to a deep part of other people. If I succeed in that, I feel that it is an entertaining and fulfilling experience for us both. So laugh, cry, or vaguely dislike my album—but I will be indebted to you if you try it!
And please, feel free to message me about anything!
