“If you look at our country’s history,” Aziz said, “change doesn’t come from presidents. Change comes from large groups of angry people — and if day one is any indication, you are part of the largest group of angry people I have ever seen. Good luck.”

The 8 Minute Hanukkah Mixtape

If you are fans of off centered middle eastern sounds, lighting candles, and playing tunes while you light em up, tune into this 8 minute mixtape. Spread some light for the holiday, or should… Continue Reading

My kid’s first baby tooth fell out. He made me write a letter to the tooth fairy to put under his pillow along with the tooth that said something like, “dear tooth fairy, please leave my tooth…. and some money too….thnx”.

The ‘New Game’ Remixed album is on it’s way!

Get ready, 16 remixes and they are super epic, can’t wait for you all to hear it!

The music is very real, very meditative and very very human.

Darkcho is an album of mystical Hasidic music, that sounds more like an indie folk rock album with tradition than what you would expect of a religious album. The music is very real, very meditative and very very human. I stumbled on these songs when I was playing shows in Sydney, AU. It never got officially released and I couldn’t let the album not be heard, so i put together a digital release with a new painting by the singer, in order to ensure that the world hears it, aged… Continue Reading

“It’s time to go left and not right Gotta get it together forever Gotta get it together for brothers Gotta get it together for sisters For mothers and fathers and dead ____ For non-conformists, one hitter quitters For Tyson types and Che figures Let’s get it together, come on let’s make it Gotta make it to make it, to make it, to make it, to make it To make something happen, to make something happen To make something happen, let’s make something happen” – Tribe

The galaxies outside of our own are moving away from us, and the ones that are farthest away are moving the fastest. I blame Trump ;).

Socrates said, the unexamined life is not worth living (Allen adds, but the examined one… is no bargain).

Finally made with my bro to The Broad, no broads.
BDE: Leonard ‘Eliezer’ Cohen

Last year, my friend Duvid Efune invited Leonard Cohen to receive the Algemeiner’s ‘Warrior for Truth’ award (previous recipients include Bernard-Henri Lévy and Elie Wiesel). His response, which he has shared with us, was an unparalleled lesson in humility and grace: May I be frank? I have never been comfortable in the world of honors and rewards. These designations seem to compromise the heart-to-heart intimacy on which my line of work depends. The song is somewhat muted when it comes from a distinguished person. I can’t whisper in anyone’s ear… Continue Reading
