Cranquis:Well, I'm sorry your panic disorder was aggravated by the "End of the World" stuff this past weekend. I think the Xanax will help you sleep better for the next couple of nights, and you should get back in to see your counselor soon, ok?
Patient #1:Ok thanks doc.
(Leaves Patient #1's room, goes on to Patient #2)
Cranquis:So, how can I help you today?
Patient #2:Well, I have anxiety, and I had a really bad panic attack this weekend...
Cranquis:Oh good grief. Let me guess: rapture anxiety?
“Malcolm X would have been 86-years-old on May 19th had he not been assassinated on February 21, 1965 in Manhattan’s Audubon Ballroom. Despite his passing, the legacy of El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz lives on – even though he is not as nationally recognized as he should be. His detractors tried to demolish his image and disintegrate his significance on race relations in this country by trying to brand him as a racist, violent figure who lived his entire life despising white people. But those who have read literature, watched and heard the speeches or have been around people who grew up around Malcolm X will tell you that the minister, human rights activist and dynamic public speaker was far from what naysayers paint his image to be. On Malcolm’s birthday, we at TheWellVersed will not let his legacy be forgotten. Regardless of how many people trumpet the passing of rappers but forget about the man who paved the way for them to even kick the rhymes they uttered, it is important to keep Malcolm X’s memory alive and remind people who one of the most influential individuals in American history was, is and always will be. Which is why we pulled some of Malcolm’s greatest quotes and how they apply to our society today.”
Putting The Dog To Sleep - The Antlers - Burst Apart
The Antlers’ Hospice was one of my favorite records in recent years. It was gripping, painful, and ultimately a lot to listen to. But it was wonderful nonetheless. The Antlers are back with their followup, Burst Apart. It’s lighter but just as wonderful. The Antlers will be the artist of the weekend on fredwilson.fm
I’ve had a difficult time not listening to this album since this past Wednesday. Here’s the closing track to a ten track album. At times sad, but easy to listen to, easy on my heart. The music has been most appropriate given the state of our Midwestern weather, and my mood at times.
