Jam of the now: Health - “Die Slow”. This song has so many elements that I love. Great video, too.

Saying that Ubisoft hates women is a stretch, but the rest of these are great.

"Assassin’s Creed is developed by a multicultural team of various faiths and beliefs and we hope this attention to diversity is reflected in the settings of our games and our characters." - Ubisoft

I guess Ubisoft doesn’t understand intersectionality, because diversity is more than faith and culture. “We put a Muslim character in so you shouldn’t complain we don’t have women in lead roles in our games” is a pretty weak excuse.

Jam of the now: Wild Light - “California on my Mind”. This is my sassy anthem.

Jam of the now : Stevie Wonder - “Superstition (live on Sesame Street)”.

This kinda blows my mind. Sesame Street is amazing, accessible television programming for children worldwide. They have a history of bringing on amazing guests, including musicians. Here we’ve got a performance in the mid 70’s from a funk musician: Stevie Wonder comes on, plays an amazing live version of one of his hit songs, and lets it go on for a nearly 7-minute jam. The fact that Sesame Street’s programmers thought “this is a cool experience for the kids” goes to show how open-minded and progressive they were (in my opinion).

Sesame Street rules.


Project Acorn - Radical Community-Building Space for Youth Ages 16-24 from LGBTQ+ Identities, Families and Communities


Project Acorn is a radical community-building space for youth aged 16-24 from LGBTQ+ identities, families, and communities. For four days, Project Acorn brings together youth and those in solidarity with youth and creates a safe, empowering, and liberating space, where people can share knowledge, make connections, and build bridges. The program is a mixture of workshops, speakers, typical camp activities, and magic that come together to create the most mind-opening and mind-blowing program possible. We want to create space to challenge the ways we think about gender and sexuality, and we want to be at the front of this movement!
