Recognize that you are not the center of the universe.
Figure out how the idea of winning and losing fits into your relationships.
Recognize vulnerability and empathy as strengths.
Don’t allow the fact that other people have been assholes to you make you into a bitter and abusive person.
Commit to the revolution as a method of psychological and physical survival.

Human Song- Mindtroll
I was chatting with Zane from Mindtroll at the Permanent Wave Slutwalk benefit show last night, and while I can’t remember exactly how he described the band (was it dork punk?), I am loving the totally accurate description on their facebook page as “not unlike the angriest children’s choir.” I am newly obsessed with Human Song because, like, it is really hard to be a human. Their music has an excellent sense of humor, clearly doesn’t take itself too seriously, yet manages to cover some pretty serious stuff.rache
