The other day I wrote on facebook:
Thank you, Ke$ha, for taking my mind off the heavy things of life.
(Dudes, sometimes you just have to turn the radio dial.)
I am politically aware and engaged in politics at the local, state and national levels. I read the news, I discuss with friends and family, I listen to progressive talk radio every morning.
But sometimes I can't hold the weight of the world before I'm fully caffeinated and so I turn the dial on my drive to work from the latest antics of our state or federal representatives and the havoc they're wreaking to the hip hop/jams station, which our beloved nanny programmed into our presets. (One of the longest lasting unintentional gifts I've received.)
Usually a distraction and even an energizer, sometimes there's a gem that pops up in rotation that hits that perfect mix of what I would be listening to if I left it to the politicos and what I'm needing in the release of music.
And it's not even the first time Will.i.am made me cry.
