Where Art Takes Us
I just read a really inspiring post from Patton Oswalt that addressed what steps we can take to fight the new status quo in a helpful, productive way. He recommended tuning your TV to ANYTHING other than the inauguration, and then he recommended supporting small and local struggling arts. It is a beautiful gesture of love and support for anyone that isn't marching or protesting in another way, but wants to. I loved the idea of art taking our country in the right direction, with or without a crazy person at the steering wheel.
I realized I should release something new on January 20th to give people wanting something else to tune into a Rose Gonzales option. Of course I would love it if you bought my music on iTunes or added it to playlist on Spotify (they even have "Scorch the Earth" with the correct spelling up...finally :D), but you can also find my music on YouTube. I'll post a video of me singing a cover I love tomorrow morning.
You'll be able to find that here
I think I'll spend the 20th writing lyrics. I can't stand feeling useless right now, and trying to put my angry energy into productive creativity has been helping me prep for Rose Gonzales, Pt. 3. I hope you have a wonderful weekend, friends! Be safe out there, no matter what your plans are!
