Jean Grae & 9th Wonder: “Don’t Rush Me”

Jean also did a song called “Taco Day” and it is deep. I don’t think this is an official video, but it’s very well done and obviously accompanies the lyrics perfectly. (Odd Future fans should note how she doesn’t simply begin and end with “I’m crazy and therefore I kill people” but rather works in some coherent sociology along the way.)

Deviant SynCast #52: Resist Cynicism, Believe in the Transcendent!

The new show is (finally) up! Sorry for the delay — Diane’s on Spring Break this week, and for some reason I feel extra silly talking into a mic by myself.

(I don’t mind doing the VeteranGamers podcast when she’s around, but I’m very self-conscious when it’s just me and the mic.)

I start out with Kony, because everyone’s talking about it (and more than a few people are asking me about it). I have a lot more to say about it, so I keep it short — but I promise to write a post here about all of it soon. Thank you for your patience!

Please send feedback to esp (at) fbesp.org or leave comments here (or post in the new chatbox). Here are the links for this week:
