!! OMG, LISTEN TO THIS: Watch the blissed-out, dreamy pop video ‘Boy M’ from Canadian band Marriage !!

Screen Shot 2015-05-12 at 2.25.08 PM

Directed by Marriage‘s own Brett Zadravetz and Heretical Objects Cooperative‘s Jenny Warne, the band’s video for ‘Boy M’ is a simplistic “anti-music video,” meant to revel in the mundanity of the scene, finding tensions and drama even in minutia.

!! OMG, U2’s Father-Son album cover promotes homosexuality and “gay propaganda”, says Russian lawmaker !!


Alexander Starovoitov, a member of the Russian State Duma has asked the Prosecutors office to investigate on whether the uploading of U2‘s Songs of Innocence album to Itunes customers breached the Russian law “against gay propaganda among minors”! The cover is of drummer Larry Mullen, Jr and his son 18-year-old Elvis who were both shirtless.

“Just like many citizens of the Russian Federation, I am an iPhone owner,” Starovoitov says. “In 2014, tracks by U2 were uploaded in a viral way to my Music folder in iTunes, with the album cover featuring what I believe to be two men engaged in a manifestation of non-traditional sexual relations.”

Whether it’s promoting our gay agenda or not, it’s definitely hurting my ears and forcing its way into my iTunes, which is a much more serious crime in my fey, fluttering, gay eyes. What do you think? Should Bono be locked away in a Russian prison with The Edge for promoting this gay filth?
