Sup! heres the video for the song Go that me and blood diamonds wrote :) co directed by me and my brother mac

It’s supposed to be dante’s inferno (abstractly), different layers of hell etc. super visually inspired by like x men, metal gear, dune. haha, maybe thats too all over the place and doesn’t make sense, but yea, enjoy!

also special thanks to everyone in it: blood diamonds, david hayter (for doing the crazy voice @ the beginning), and the dancers (Nicki, natsuki, hana and rey!)

I was once a linebacker-sized eighteen-year-old, too. What I knew then, what black people have been required to know, is that there are few things more dangerous than the perception that one is a danger. Jelani Cobb on Ferguson. (via newyorker)

I’ll believe in anything, if you’d believe in anything. 

I was reading my first book of the semester when I had a vision of Spencer Krug, in the summer of 2008, before he grew long hair, mugging his microphone during the chorus of I’ll Believe in Anything; he had stood up from behind his organ/keyboard set up, and had put his foot on the stool in such a way that it began to tilt. My friend Peter and I jumped up and down, screaming the chorus. I’m not sure it was true then, but it may be true now.
