!! OMG, alien love: SSION’S ‘Earthquake’ !!


If you’ve ever lingered after school until all the lights are off, maybe you’ve had a fun, freakshow fantasy like the one in this video for SSION’s romantic song “Earthquake.” In their words:

SSION’s new video is a coming of age love story between an enigmatic instigator and an alien-brother-lover resulting in the purest form of magik with a bit of feminism and Las Vegas showmanship thrown in for good measure, all shot in Kansas City.

SSION will play a show June 30 at Wrongbar during Toronto Pride next week. For more tour dates, check here.

!! OMG, when keeping it real is oh so right: Nina Simone !!

Nina Simone.jpg
Late jazz singer and civil rights activist Nina Simone was known to use music as a political weapon but, in at least one instance, she also used a deadly weapon as a weapon.
In this 1999 interview with BBC program HardTalk, Simone recounts the time she tried to shoot a thieving record label executive at a restaurant in Switzerland. “Sorry I didn’t get him!” she told the interviewer. “And that’s how I met my lawyer because my lawyer read in The Financial Times that I pulled out a knife in Switzerland and tried to kill somebody who stole my records and he said, ‘Anybody who’s willing to go to that length to get their royalties I want to work for ’em!'”
