SongoftheDay: BLACK ME OUT by AGAINST ME!
Not that I want to sound stereotypical, and by no means want to insult the good people of Gainesville, Florida, but it must have been tough for Laura Jane Grace to truly be okay with the fact that she was not a boy. The courage it must have taken to make that reality, in a place where football reigns supreme and pick-up trucks line the streets to the ball park, is truly remarkable. Some creative forces understand the concept that comfort is the enemy of art, and Laura of Against Me! knows better than most about what it is to be uncomfortable in her skin. The art of it all has benefited from it, I’m sure, but it’s awesome that she found the strength to make things right. The world feels a little less shitty knowing she was able to make it work. – FATS
