“I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but I read blogs by scientists…”
I had a pretty amazing weekend, just quietly. Mainly because I got to see Kimya Dawson live, dance with her to Aesop Rock and subsequently get a big hug from her. That’s pretty amazing to me – I admire Kimya so much, and it really was something special to watch her perform. Her new album, Thunder Thighs, has just come out here in Australia and her collaboration with Aesop is set for release next year. This track comes from it, and the super-low-budget video was made by Aesop himself.
You get to meet Kimya’s adorable five-year-old kid, Panda, and watch the mother and daughter make miniature multi-coloured volcanoes together. That’s it. It’s so simple, but it’s so gosh darn gorgeous that I just HAD to share it. I mean, Panda! Ahhhhh. She’s the cutest thing in the world, you just wanna cuddle her as soon as you see her. Ahhhh! I could go on. But I won’t. Watch this!
