SOKO’S SWEET SOUND

No it’s not Southern Comfort with lime shots. This isn’t Syracuse University and it’s not 2004. What it is however is one of QuietColor’s favourite French girls with a new track and video. Peep it below..

And here’s a personal message from SOKO via Nylon.com

Sweet Sound of Ignorance” is the first song I’ve released since my album My Dreams Dictate My Reality, which came out two years ago.

So I’m a little nervous.

In August, I moved from L.A. to NY to record my upcoming album with Patrick Wimberly and challenge myself out of my comfort zone. I put so much of my entire being into making music: heart and soul, tears, sweat, and blood. The song is the result of purposely isolating myself until I lost track of time, people, life, reality—a form of self-induced cabin fever. In a nutshell, it’s about being very anti-social and a lonely crybaby in desperate need of a cuddle, yet terrified of intimacy, but the track sounds pretty happy if you don’t pay attention to the words. It’s a contrast I always treasure in music—happy-sad music.

PELLY VEGAN FARMS PODCAST 1: SPACE EDUCATION

Daniel Amodio hosts the likes of Alex Pellerano and Timmy Jenkins in this in-depth, half baked, and well intentioned look at necessary updates to our school system curriculums.

 

  • Does history matter?
  • Does space exploration better the future of the human race?
  • Have humans accomplished anything of significance outside of the moon landing and creating the Internet?

Wonder no more, the time has come. 

‘NOT FOR SALE’ CREATES RESTAURANT 4 TRAFFICKING SURVIVORS

Wonderful story about how non-profit ‘Not For Sale’ created a restaurant to help assist victims of sex trafficking in Amsterdam. See below for the latest correspondence from ‘Not For Sale’ on this topic..

Yesterday you read about our NEW PLANS for Amsterdam. Because we’re doing something 100% DIFFERENT than what’s been tried before… You have the chance to help DOUBLE the number of trafficking survivors who can leave slavery behind for good. (… and the impact only gets bigger from here.)

I’m positive YOU will be as AMAZED as much as I am… When I tell you what we’ve discovered… But first I want to share the story of Maria* (not her real name).

She was trapped… We met her while she lived in an Amsterdam shelter with her daughter… But she couldn’t leave. See… she had escaped sex trafficking… But NO ONE WOULD HIRE HER for even the smallest work.

She had no way to get her and her daughter out of the shelter, and she couldn’t buy clothes and books for her daughter to go to school. Maria was considering going back to sex work to earn money… We quickly asked her to join our 10-month culinary program.

In no time she learned how to bake and cook — behind the scenes at one of the city’s top brunch restaurants. She became instantly employable… anywhere in the Netherlands. Today she has completed her escape from slavery. Maria works as an assistant executive chef — a prime role in a city for foodies. She rents her own apartment. And her daughter is now in school like other children.

And Maria also makes a killer chocolate cake 😉

Isn’t that beautiful?
