WHAT YOU CAN DO TO FIGHT HATE

A lot of people right now want to do something to fight the hate and prejudice that seem suddenly rampant, but they don’t know what to do. I find it alarming that in a free and democratic society, this knowledge is not more widely disseminated.

Summer Roadtrip Mix: Baa Mix 87

There is nothing like listening to a new mix right as you set out on an adventure. If you’re going to listen to one song, then it’s a tie between Fiction and There Will Be Time (Live in South Africa version, plz) because both are incredible. In fact actually, the whole Kygo album is great so just get it. Oh and the new Grouplove is pretty great. Kygo Feat. Tom Odell: Fiction (OB-SESSED. But annoyingly, this is just a snippet, and it’s ...
