@The-Cannabinoids for SSENSE, mixed by DJ @a1beats.

As longtime fans of neo-soul icon (and Spring 14 face of Givenchy) Erykah Badu, we weren’t at all surprised to see her take her sound in an innovative direction. Badu conceived her “psychedelic live hip-hop” group The Cannabinoids around the concept of bringing the creative process onstage…

Anonymous asked: interested in a "straight" and by the way he looks at me i can tell there's something. looking at my ass. looking in my eyes across a room. he's timid, i can tell. i asked him if he wanted to catch a movie and he said "wtf dude I'm not gay" and he looked disappointed the next day. very awkward between us. we used to flirtatiously banter and now he can't look me in the eyes. I'm torn because i want to respect what he says but "are you straight then don't be gay." i really like him. advice pleasee


first: i’ve been there and a lot of people are there right now and will continue to be and to go there too

two: why are (american?) queer people conditioned to pursue people who totally disrespect them? why do we feel that we need to win over extremely hateful people to be loved? like, are you kidding me? why would you ever want to date that asshole? there’s nothing wrong with being “closeted,” but there’s plenty wrong with being an asshole. is that the love you deserve? the shit-eating kind? please, girl. respect yourself.


"aesthetic" is a very good word, important word. "i love the fifties." no you don’t the fifties kinda TOTALLY SUCKED for many human beings in America. "i love fifties aesthetic" well then, awesome. go you with your bright blocks of color and cute skirts and mini jackets and hair poufs.
