White People, Do Something

1. If you're angrier about destruction of property (which is most likely insured anyway) than you are about the destruction of actual people's lives, reexamine your priorities. 2. If you're pushing "All lives matter" as a response to black people's concerns about racism and police brutally, you don't actually think that all lives matter, because … Continue reading White People, Do Something


Daily Yinz – Hot Hail – Dark Horizon

Hot Hail is a Pittsburgh artist whose synthesized suites act as soundtracks for imaginary animated films. "Dark Horizon," a track from Hot Hail's March EP, Phantom Themes, is on the spookier end of the vaporwave spectrum, all brooding piano, chilly, siren-like synth blares, and liquid arpeggios.
