The Stars Align for Synth-Pop Phenoms Moon Kissed

Moon Kissed is a promising Brooklyn-based synth-pop trio. The cheerful youth-drunk band has produced an impressive set of catchy, memorable songs and a charged boundary-pushing performance that is energetic as well as daring. The group is known to perform their synth-ladened poppy licks with the occasional appearance of crowd-rousing punkish riffs topless in an unheeding and defiant “fuck you!” to, well, who cares. Just, fuck you.

Music is an escape and a shelter. During treatments, music brought beauty in my life, where everything was so ugly and painful.

Conspiracy Crusades and Insurrection

in America: Is This Only The Beginning?

Are we at the cusp of greater societal upheaval? Only time will tell. The collective events of the last year have made it palpable - what divides us is a sickness that runs much deeper than what is seen on screens. If there is a remedy to be had to heal this country and bridge the chasm among its citizens, from the picture that these photos paint, one is only left to assume that time is running out.


Patriots or rioters? Loyalists or terrorists? 

They said they were fighting for their children and grandchildren. They said they were prepared to die that day for their country, and some did.


They Chanted, USA! They called to let the Proud Boys get through to the front line as they hurled weapons and debris at the capitol building while succeeding at scaling its walls. They broke barricades, windows, and doors and entered by the hundreds.


Journalists were beaten and stripped of their equipment, attendees of the riot were trampled and stomped upon.


Lawmakers ran from the senate floor to safety.  The stark amount of capitol police officers present stood guard with guns drawn to protect cabinet members and democracy itself.

The photos below were taken by the brave photojournalists who were on the ground that day and one undercover law enforcement officer who was willing to share a few shots that he took while on duty. The photos are being shared by permission through Lummoxi’s head of photography.

"Only a cleansing of our whole society can remove this sickness from our souls" - RFK

This short speech by Robert Kennedy from 1968 echoes into modern times, powerful and as relevant as ever. In it, RFK joins in words with Abraham Lincoln to remind us that appeals to violence, mobs of rioters, can never win. And those who make such an appeal will pay the cost. 


However, the storming of mobs and rioters is rarely ever about pure anarchy. RFK's words are deafening as he implores us to look upon another kind of violence; the violence of institutions, inaction, decay, and the "slow destruction" of hopelessness, inequality, injustice, racism, and despair. This is the violence the leads the hopeless to hatred, intolerance, conspiracy, and insurrection. This is the violence that must be quelled before peace will prevail.
