My friend Max (short for Maxima, though if it were short for Maximus that would also be cool in a GLADIATOR way) has introduced me to Macklemore.
He’s a Seattle rapper famous for the THRIFT STORE song and video, which is worth an entirely post by itself.
I’d heard Macklemore’s songs on the radio and such, but not the music videos, seeing how MTV doesn’t play vids anymore because, you know, wall-to-wall Jersey Shore nonsense and such. Snooki needs her screen time.
This video is long and courageous and well done.
I salute you, Macklemore, for having the range to do a hilarious romp like THRIFT STORE and the guts to do this quiet little beauty.

That’s beautiful. And I am sad that my state, the state that forced the Supreme Court to take up interracial marriage in Loving v. Virginia, is still bound in the prejudice of half a century past – and doesn’t recognize that love is – regardless of who does the loving or the being loved.
Your state will get there.
It’s just lovely. I’m very proud to be living in Washington right now, too.
