i've been feeling overwhelmingly sad about how much the world and how American media in particular has slyly avoided broadcasting the real Truth and the harsh reality as it pertains to the flood victims in pakistan.

20 million displace thats 1 in 5 families
120,000 cases of dengue fever
3.5 million children susceptible to water borne diseases
global donor fatigue

this is how i feel

to donate any amount to a legitimate place that will use you money to help the children of Pakistan and flood victims

ground zero-ji

Ground Zero-Ji

ground zero
you are not a mosque
you are a mosque a temple
you are a museum of history
a natural artifact
a mummy
my mother
my father
you are a fact
you are a city
you are cobblestone streets and vendors
of different shades
you are russian baths
and discount shopping
NR trains
and yoga spots
i stole from you once ground zero
i watched you die.
i prayed in your arms
i smoked my life away.
we smoked your life away
away we go
in shah allah
we can remember you without
fussing and fighting
without forgetting that this
is not about you or buildings
or mosques
or synangogues
or churches
or shrines
or diners
or music
or gold street
this about the many feet that inhabit
this land
this is about compassion
and tolerance
this about loving everyone
no matter

new york ci(n)t(imac)y

hello beautiful ones.

i am overwhelmed with love and support that i have received from new york and wanted to send a smoke signal of gratitude to all those who came to support the show or have shown support.
Am in the studio with my friend and producer musician dan laureano. And i am excited to share this last song ' the animal days are gone. ' i think it is our best collaboration yet. Also getting a kickstarter campaign together in conjuction with the campaign which seeks to eradicate violence against women through youth empowerment globally. Not only will you be showing support for indie music you will also be helping the delegates for the man up campaign from afghanistan.

i'm amazed.

slowly but

thank you thank you.
