Hi, I'm hedda, and why are all the instructions on the website in Spanish?

and you say
and your face becomes thin
and you never thought it could

I listen to a lot of Stevie Nicks these last few days. Not the jazzed up radio hits, but the second-tier cuts, especially the ones that are chill. Firstly because I have a friend who is sick, a friend with whom I would talk about Stevie Nicks (more so than listen to her), thirty years ago. We're thinking of her tonight.

and when you call
will you walk gently through my shadow
it's the ones who sing at night
it's the ones who sing at night
just like the white-wing dove
and when you call
you can walk gently through my shadow
just like the white-winged dove

2ndly, because of a meet up I had last week. He and I have a history together, when we were each feeling too much pressure in life, and it morphed into a mutual (extremely sexy) obsession, which was messy in its way. Last week it felt so easy and natural between us, beautiful really, and as though we might have some gained some maturity about how to love one another.

and we fight for the northern star

I made it back! This is the best thing that's ever happened to me!

 I'm eating toast, and sorting out papers I've gathered over years for my radio show. Join me on the air, kboo.fm, at 6 pm tonight for Preference: an experiment in queer radio. At 6:30, I'll be talking with Nick Mulé, with Queer Ontario and No Pride in Policing Toronto, to talk about police presence at pride festivals. 

a list.

top ten current heddajams (sort of in order):

1. The Downside of Gentrification, by Mike Simonetti and Jonny Jewel - holy crap, I can't find this anywhere online. Not to tease you!

2. Stephanie Mills - Never Knew Love Like This Before

3. Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam - Lost in Emotion (what the hell happened to Full Force?)

4. Sia - Clap Your Hands (Fred Falke remix)

5. Bigmouth Strikes Again

6. Mina - Ancora Ancora Ancora - this is def a former top heddajam. I listened to the song for like a month solid

7. Anna of the North - Sway (Chainsmokers Remix)

8. Amerie - 1 Thing

9. SOS Band - Just Be Good To Me (long version)

10. Shirley Scott & the Soul Saxes - cover of Marvin Gaye's 'You' (if I did this every week like Billboard or whatever, this track would probably be in the top ten for roughly the 100th consecutive week, no lies children)

the ladypower is strong right now.
