Alou Sangaré

This artist from the Republic of Mali in Africa takes me to another dimension when I turn it up, close my eyes and lay back. The videos are kind of corny, but I do love the photography that captures bits of the Malian spirit. The music is authentic, resonating something beautiful and might just provide psychic restoration if that's what you need.

Classic video of Theresa Andersson - It doesn't get more indie than this

This was upload to YouTube over three years ago. I first saw it about two years ago and was mesmerized by this particular video after a few bars. It's all very real. Sure, it's raw and the video is out of focus. But, this girl has "it". She is inspired!

A True Indie - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Dr. Martin Luther King is one of my personal heros. His words are even more powerful than they ever were to me, right now, as my country is trying to be the policeman of the world and only making more enemies in the process, and as Dr. King describes, the ultimate worse enemy to have. I think our politicians are our own worst enemy. With the exception of those like Dr. Ron Paul on the right and Dennis Kucinich on the left. GC

America Be Warned speech by Martin Luther King Jr.


Happy Birthday Martin Luther King Jr.
