Love is an Action. Love is the Answer. Love is the Movement.

People say you have to have a lot of passion for what you’re doing, and it’s totally true. The reason is because it’s so hard that if you don’t, any rational person would give up. It’s really hard, and you have to do it over a sustained period of time. So if you don’t love it, if you’re not having fun doing it, you don’t really love it, you’re gonna give up.
Steve Jobs, on Perseverance

AZ // New York (Ft. Raekwon & Ghostface Killah) (4:20 Remix)

The first release from Marmorean Records, a domaine de Cosmonostro.

I would say that the thrust of my life has been initially about getting free, and then realizing that my freedom is not independent of everybody else. Then I am arriving at that circle where one works on oneself as a gift to other people so that one doesn’t create more suffering. I help people as a work on myself and I work on myself to help people.
Ram Dass

Quantic Y Conjunto // Step Into A World (Rapture’s Delight)

If you know this classic Krs-One song you will trip on Quantic’s cover.

The library of music i’ve added to the Staying Underground tumblr is getting so large that i use it for research sometimes. For instance I was trying to find this song in my personal library but couldn’t remember the name. I remembered writing about the KRS-ONE reference so I searched and found the song i was looking for straight away. Thank you younger self for cataloging that!

There’s an interesting stage in spiritual awakening where you wish you could go back to sleep again.. Because you know too much to do the things you wanted to do but you don’t know enough yet to not want them. And your just caught in between those places..

Jessie Ware // Tough Love (Sango Remix)

Sango is a beast at remixing. He’s so good I’m usually not interested in listening to the original after I hear his reworks, i’m addicted to his production style.

Today I took this picture of Al-FREE-Ka. She’s my best friend. We hang out all day. In the park. Heckling strangers. Lovingly. 🔊 #alfie #life #oakland
