Before Boko Haram guns sank holes in his skull, He was a lively boy, he was a sprinter, he was his high school's champion. Before he became the reason for familial grief, He was the origin of my mother's smiles. I cannot say "our mother" because Bashir is dead. He is now dust, Grasses have grown from his body. And to use the pronoun "our" Is to make my mother revisit the first phase of her grief. The dead things do not come alive again in this city Filled with bomblasts and gunshots. I remember, I remember your last words; I can see them as if in a vision, Written boldly on my mind's walls: "Save me, Bareed! Save me, Bareed! I am dying"; But I did not look backwards because I was running, Running from those who separate the soul from its body; Because when fire burns us all, We do not save others before ourselves. I do not write with tears anymore Because salt water is no elixir— Powerless to cause resurrection. I still grief; Grief never truly goes away, But I have learned to live peacefully With the memory of a dead brother. And I am blessing his gone soul with this poem. ————————————– Kolawole Samuel Adebayo called us from Akure, Ondo State, Nigeria.

I wish I was a priest. I wish I wore buffalo horns and an ivory orb as a mitre on my head. High holidays and times of despair- what to do and more importantly what to wear decided, unyieldingly glam, form untraceable beneath the pooling blue. I wish I had that far off look, holding up a white flag to the crazed fertility coming between me and the great, pure ocean. ————————————– Laura Cronk called us from New York, NY.

Jeanette Anderson uses an ingenious method to tell her story of suffering a traumatic brain injury. Here's her story.
And here’s to disastrous news and the grace of each arc of decay: An ejaculate of oil burps from a crack in the earth. Some laughter pierces a distant uncle’s funeral, harsh and young. Your boyish spectrum blooms through jean skirts. My toy microscope was stacked with grass, scab and boogie slides. Later, high, I ate from a witch’s hand an offering of wicked brand beer and acorn meat. Despite hollowed gates opening, windows always tempted us a jump. Last weekend, I watched you watch my back pickle. My memories of bodies somersaulting slowed and enjoyed their descent. This mess. Scuffed feet stains overrunning my bath tub. A patch of toothpaste on the lip of your sink calcifies. A humid fall squats dense on our chests at four in the morning. We play 20 questions into the night. - It’s an object the size of your face. - It’s a place that no longer exists. - A web of silk the small thing worries into. - A mudslide with us there gasping fiercely one last time. ————————————– Warren C. Longmire called us from Philadelphia, PA.

Désormais, tout est permis : on peut être fan du label néerlandais de techno hardcore Thunderdome et apprécier l’énergie du rap le plus provoquant, celui de LIM par exemple. En mélangeant le gabber (une forme particulièrement tapageuse de techno batave) et des a cappella rap français, Evil Grimace a créé un genre baptisé « Frapcore » : des punchlines scandées a tue-tête, des basses d’une violence foudroyante, et l’acharnement des drums comme des claques dans la gueule à répétition… Il dissèque ici son hymne des free partys, le morceau emblématique et générationnel « 3 Litres ». La chaîne YouTube et le SoundCloud d'Evil Grimace. Le SoundCloud de Casual Gabberz.

You can tell a lot about someone from the way they treat the animals in their lives. When storyteller Cristal Willcox's beloved cat Kashmir passed away, her friends gathered for the kind of midnight funeral that could only take place in Louisiana. In another time and place, storyteller Randall Ross embarks on a lovelorn holiday acid trip during which a talking feline encourages him to commit cat burglary. It's a weird episode.

Le rap est devenu la nouvelle pop music, Myth Syzer élabore des beats acidulés et synthétiques comme des bonbons Haribo. Pour la série Beatmakers, il fait d’abord l'inventaire de ses influences 90’s, du R&B de R.Kelly au boom-bap de J. Dilla qui lui a inspiré son nom. Il décompose les pistes de son fameux single « Le Code », le premier track ou il assume pleinement de chanter au micro, mais aussi celui où il démontre vraiment que son rap est soluble dans une pop « à la Etienne Daho ». Muddy Monk, le rappeur Ichon et l’excentrique Bonnie Banane le rejoignent sur ce tube aussi doux qu'imparable. Du rap qui chante l’amour, avec glamour. Autres extraits de l’épisode : - Aaliyah : « At your best (You are love) » - Joke : « Kyoto » - Sade : « War of the Hearts » - Etienne Daho et Françoise Hardy: « Et si je m’en vais avant toi » Dans cette deuxième saison, dix nouveaux producteurs français (King Doudou, Laurent Garnier, Trackbastardz, Don Nodey...) racontent le « making of » de leur plus grand tube.
