“As you can imagine, for anyone who is just learning that they can be feeding a common poison to their families, it can be pretty shocking,” said Jorge Aguilar, Food and Water Watch’s Southern Region director. “It leads to questions about food safety and why this arsenic was used in the first place.”—Dudes, they feed chickens arsenic! For real! And then they scatter the poo and it poisons the soil and gets into the water! Madness! (via vegansaurus)
Weekends (like all days, really) are filled with music at my house. On Sundays I wake up to an empty place, courtesy of smarty pants med-school roommate studying on campus. I usually wake up, turn up the volume, and let the tunes carry me through the day.
Today I’d like to share some of the music I’ve been listening to. I was lucky enough to catch two great artists last night at the Bunbury Theatre here in Louisville; this guy and gal blew away all expectations. Please, check them out!
Andrea Davidson - Louisville native, she’s an energetic mix of Patty Griffin and Keller Williams. Beatboxing, finger-picking, beautiful vocals; she’s got it all. Check out her new track, Empty Promise (she just filmed this in her apartment last month). She’s releasing a new album soon, so keep an eye out for it.
Erick Baker - Hailing from Knoxville, Erick is a very talented folk singer. Reminiscent of a softer Ray LaMontagne, Erick manages to evoke an incredible amount of feeling in his songs. Check out this track he wrote to get his wife to marry him, My Two Left Feet.
“White people don’t get to decide if something is racist. On a much smaller scale, allow me to represent this by punching you in the face. Then I get to decide, myself, whether it hurts or not.”—Anesti Vega (via proclamationofemaciation)
