George, my husband… George, who is out somewhere there in the dark, who is good to me - whom I revile, who can keep learning the games we play as quickly as I can change them. Who can make me happy and I do not wish to be happy. Yes, I do wish to be happy. George and Martha: Sad, sad, sad. Whom I will not forgive for having come to rest; for having seen me and having said: yes, this will do.
Tucking this aside for election night nail-biting.
Genius graphic of the day: As the New York Times shows in the amazing interactive piece “512 Paths to the White House,” Obama’s path to winning the Electoral College is much easier than that of Romney. In fact, if Obama wins Florida, Romney would have to win eight other toss-up states to topple that blow. That’s less likely than an Obama Ohio win at the moment, but … ah, why explain it?! Play with the fun, interactive, awesome graphic! (ht Jason Smedvik)

Seven months ago the band Lemonade shared with the world their song “Neptune”. It’s a wonderful pop song, with wonderful melodies and connectable / perfect lyrics. As I tend to do with most songs I hear and love. I covered it, as an exercise usually only for myself, but this time I sent it to the band.
At the time I loved the lyrics, but right now seven months later… i fully appreciate the lyrics, so in the absence of new Blood Orange materiel… here it is.
p.s I asked my friend Starchild to perform a rap at the end of the track. (You should definitely grab his most recent mix tape Night Music -http://blacknouveaux.tumblr.com/post/17595019309/starchild-night-music-ep )
Anyway enough. Enjoy.
