I have frequently talked about the many problems created by the current campaign finance structure. Corporate donations distort their influence in politics and corrupt our democracy. This is an issue not many Americans seem interested in, but it effects all Americans by insuring that corporate interests are put before the interests of the average person. Genuine democracy should guarantee that politicians create the greatest good for the greatest number of people, but that idea has eroded with the favors owed by politicians to corporations in exchange for their contributions. A portion of the proceeds from the “Scale Tipping Services” print will go to two organizations who are fighting against political corruption, and for campaign finance reform. They are rootstrikers.org and unitedrepublic.org. These orgs are doing great work, so please support them! Thanks for caring.
Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, HBO's Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name while attempting to break new ground of its own.
Joey Cape's brand new album, Let Me Know When You Give Up, is available for pre-order now! Out on Friday, July 5th, Cape’s latest effort is, conceptually, about giving up a losing fight. Even more so, it's about quality of life, and abstaining from the madness that encircles our daily lives. The lead track, “I Know How To Run,” is a song Cape wrote about the current social debate and its divisive nature.
