If you've known me for any length of time, you'll know I have a Taste…

If you've known me for any length of time, you'll know I have a Taste in music. I was president of the Rock and Metal society; my 'music' icon on LJ is a portrait of a certain founding member of the shock rock genre. I wear a lot of black.

Of course, if you've known me for that long, you'll probably know  I have an eclectic taste in music; it's not just the metal, but I adore Ani DiFranco and Mitch Benn and lots of artists who really have something to say in a tuneful way.

So while it might be a bit of a surprise to hear that sometimes I really like a hip-hop artist, it shouldn't be too much of one. The artist in question is Mélange Lavonne, a Californian lesbian 'hip-hop activist', whose video Gay-Bashing was linked to on AfterEllen:

Aside from the obvious political message that I'm aligned with, I really love this song, and Mélange's voice. I've really started to listen to this genre as a activist movement, and I do love it.

Yeah, yeah, it's totally a political thing combined with a shallow thing (I think she's beautiful), but I've been listening to these songs all day, so I took it upon myself to share.

And that's my dose of beauty for the day.

Ooh. This really isn't my normal thing at all (I was actually just bitching about rap with people), but I like her.

And on a purely shallow level: a) ooh, pretty and in about twenty/thirty years' time she'd be the perfect PB for an OC of mine. Especially in that suit.

Yay, someone else who likes Alice! I've seen him live twice and, if you haven't done so yet, you should. He puts on *quite* a show!

Four times. And the first time, he gave me his cane.
