CHESTER, PA - APRIL 28: Gabriel Gomez #6 of the Philadelphia Union with the help of teammates holds up the flag of his native Panama after scoring a goal in the second half against the San Jose Earthquakes in a Major League Soccer game on April 28, 2012 at PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania. San Jose defeated the Union 2-1.
The kinship with those humans who speak directly to me is webbed to the ceiling. An economy of satellites, a cosmos, where revision we think comes without the benefit of our witness. A peculiar time when stars with modest faces sleep in enormity and mirror death like a child’s infirmity that despite socio-economics is still an illness, definitive as fading paint grossing a distant understanding from a stain pooled from its center resonant of some terrific nucleus making sense of its own words with the strangest electricity.
To my followers in Massachusetts, did you catch the debate between Senate hopefuls Congressman Ed Markey (D-MA 5th District) and Gabriel Gomez? If not, catch it here on C-Span: http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/313171-1
“The MA Senate debate showed that this election comes down to one question: Whose side do you stand on? Gabriel Gomez proved tonight: On the issues we care about for women, seniors and the middle class, he’ll stand with Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans, not with the people of Massachusetts. Ed Markey will fight to level the playing field for working families of the Commonwealth and our country. I’m proud to support Ed’s campaign.”
It never fails to amaze me how easily and suddenly the right music can sink into one’s core and affect our emotions. Take NY-based singer/songwriter/producer/rapper and all around talented individual CE’s new video for his track “Mudra”, which was released back in 2012, but due to lack of funding never got the video it deserved until now.
Like the song, the Gabriel Gomez directed video is simple, but reinforces the power of the lyrics through it’s simplicity.
If this is your first time hearing about this song, then you might need to brace yourself and have some tissues ready for this, but the vocal sample that comes in @ 3:45 are actually self-recorded vocals from his now late father back when CE was only a child. Ugh! If that doesn’t hit you right in the gut, then I dunno what will.
Give the track a little while to pick up speed. There’s no backing until around 1 minute in. You can find the track below on CE’s Bandcamp…
With just two weeks until the special election, we’re fired up to send Rep. Ed Markey to the Senate! Will his opponent, Gabriel Gomez, continue to dodge questions and mislead voters about his anti-choice positions? Watch tonight’s debate live at 7 p.m. to find out –> http://nar.al/o1
