Forgive Yourself

Forgive yourself for not being the richest, the thinnest, the tallest, the one with the best hair. Forgive yourself for not being the most successful, the cutest or the one with the fastest time. Forgive yourself for not winning every round.

Forgive yourself for being afraid.

But don’t let yourself off the hook, never forgive yourself, for not caring or not trying.

It’s been nearly three years since my favorite band was in town. And I’m telling you now, it was worth the fucking wait. 
side note: They pulled a Kanye, so there were no photographers in the pit during their set… I may have the only moderately high res photos from this show :o

“I was tired of America-as-the-future, the world as a white monoculture, the protagonist as a good guy. I wanted to make room for antiheroes.” In honor of William Gibson’s birthday, read his 2011 Art of Fiction interview.

She cannot see what hit him, or what he might have hit. Or else the street itself had risen up, to smite him. It is not only those things we most fear that do that, she reminds herself.

Swedish group Little Dragon cover Kelis’ Millionaire for triple j’s Like A Version, with Yukimi throwing down a dope version of Andre 3000’s rap.

The dopeness captured in this video is pretty much what the Oakland show was.

Little Dragon’s show at The Fox Theater earlier might have been one of the best performances I’ve ever seen. I can’t recall a time where I’ve watched a band so much in sync with everything on stage. There were times where it looked like Yukumi was an orchestra conductor in control of not only the band, but the lights as well, with color and sounds responding to the movements of her hands and her dancing. What’s surprising is that the lights being used didn’t look sophisticated at all, especially compared to more elaborate setups I’ve seen. 
This was also the only instance that I can remember where the performance sounded as detailed as the record was, where you could close your eyes and be immersed in so many different and distinct sounds. And not only that, if you look at all the extra gear on stage, all of that audio bliss came from instruments on stage, and not from a track being played back. Hands off to the band for putting on a phenomenal performance, but especially to the sound and lighting crew who really made it happen.
BTW, Yukumi was wearing all white AM90s and the entire band looked like they had been dressed by Tres Bien :)
