Marvin Gaye // Anger (1978)

I listened to Here, My Dear all the way through twice today. This album is pure emotion at it’s best.

"Anger, can make you old, yes it can
I said anger, can make you sick, children… oh Jesus
Anger destroys your soul
Rage, there’s no room for rage in there
There’s no room for rage in here
line up some place to go to be mad
It’s a sin to treat your body bad..”

- Marvin Gaye

Yesterday I went to the people and levelled up in a big way. Music on a Hi-Fi soundsystem is now my reality and I won’t be leaving my room until I run out of records to experience. 

Brilliant Comic of Banksy's Call To Arms Against Advertisers

It would be great to see this turned into an animated film.

Last night I finally got to hear one of my fav selectas Eden Hagos spin at a beautiful Ethiopian and Eritrean New Years event hosted by homexhome. It was such a beautiful experience because it is so rare for me to hear someone play music that sounds like my taste but is largely unknown to me.Staying Underground bless up her sound.

I think the main reason I don’t say anything on here anymore is because I truly don’t even know who I’m speaking to.

Same. I only really create content these days. The people I talk with are the OG’s and very few of them are active on here anymore. It’s ironic because I have a couple thousand more followers now then when I was active in the tumblr community. At least we connected on here before it became saturated with the same content and aesthetics.
