This video boosted mine. Always a blessing to hear upbeat worship music. Shout out to Everett Aaron Benjamin for the link.
On a side note (sort of): This party definitely looks super poppin. Need to find one of these somewhere.

As I am soon to be releasing (probs over the summer) a hip-hop/spoken word mixtape dealing with themes of posthuman identity, Afronautics, and generally the slippages between the robotic and the African diasporic, this Janelle Monae vid seemed like the ideal entry for this morning. Rife with surrealist imagery and flawless choreography, it's just the sort of otherworldly pick me-up you can come to expect from yours truly over the next few months. Graduation is less than a month away! Yay!

I know the 2-week-long delays are getting old. I know. Math midterms require a little extra time for yours truly though, and graduation is a necessity, my dude.
That being said, Dylan Garity is my favorite poet of the moment. Discovered his stuff after putting my ear to the CUPSI grapevine (couldn't go this year, school is really cramping my whole other life something vicious right now) and was impressed by all the work I've seen so far. Really interesting style, knows how to make everyday images sound beautiful in a way I've only heard from a few cats in the game. Hats off to my generation for carving out some new space in spoken word. Next few years are looking up!

Shouts to my boy J Ryles for this hilarious clip. His only caption was "White men jumping."
Jumping indeed. This man Mark Jackson got posterized all crazy. After he reads this post, I fully expect a public apology to all of his fans on his next television broadcast. This dunk was disrespectful. Dynamic. Dystopian!
Ok, maybe not the last one, but you can't hate on a brother for taking the occasional foray into alliteration. It's my favorite device!
