Kawehi: “I’d Never Tell”

Secrets…we all have them. Some are kept because we don’t want to hurt someone. Or maybe we’ve done things that we don’t EVER want people to know about. But sometimes – secrets are kept because of society. Those are the unfair ones. In my Utopia, people wouldn’t have to hide their true selves – there would be no lines, no walls built, no prejudices against where people come from, the color of their skin and who they choose to love. We are all a part of the same Earth – and should have the same kind of opportunity and freedoms as the next. And with the way things are going on this planet – we’re going to need each other.

 

I’d Never Tell
I walk with keys,
They’re not for me
Holding on to Mother’s dreams
and Daddy’s history
I walk with hands
They aren’t like yours
They aren’t like yours
I’d never tell
I’d never tell
And in the silence of my truths
I admit to
Feeling so unprotected
Dealing with roots that I’ve rejected
Two feet on different floors
Never anyone to tell secrets to
I’m only half connected
Waiting for the other shoe to fall down
You look so unaffected
Dancing in your pretty pretty dress, like, oohhhh
Don’t send me postcards
Where my blood runs so thick
This land is your land
This land is mine –
All I need is a paper to do the trick
Daddy bussed your table
Momma tucked your kids in bed
So I could live a better hell
I’d never tell
I’d never tell
And in my silence I am free of Country
I’m feeling
Feeling so unprotected
Dealing with roots that I’ve rejected
Two feet on different floors
Never anyone to tell secrets to
I’m only half connected
Waiting for the other shoe to fall down
You look so unaffected
Dancing in your pretty pretty dress, like, oohhhh
I’d never tell
I’d never tell
it’s not like you knew me well
I’d never tell
I’d never tell
It’s not like it would do you good
walking around with a hood on
with people out there calling themselves God
So pretty, so nice
Living here comes with a price(tag)
And in the silence of my truths
I admit to
As always, say WASABI!: facebook.com/iamkawehi

Sony to reportedly offload its old Tokyo HQ for some quick cash

Engadget:

 

It appears Sony isn’t quite done selling off assets in a bid to reverse its financial losses. Just weeks after it sold its VAIO PC business, the company is reportedly in talks to offload another one of its properties: its former headquarters in central Tokyo.

The deal could net Sony more than 15 billion yen ($146.5 million), adding to the $2.3 billion it recouped from the sale of its New York and Osaka buildings last year. Locals have blasted the potential move, however, arguing that the company’s “birthplace,” where founders Akio Morita and Masaru Ibuka worked on the Walkman and Trinitron TV, should be exempt from its restructuring efforts.

The proceeds could be used to cushion the $1.1 billion loss Sony expects to make in its current financial year, putting no pressure whatsoever on the new Xperia Z2 family to sell well when it hits stores in April.

WHOwho(후후) – Her (Studio live version)

Show this to anyone who thinks Korean music is all K-Pop.

Enormously popular in the South Korean indie music scene, WHOwho sound like this generation’s Daft Punk and look like Brooklyn hipsters. Their mix of electronic dance rock is a far cry from K-pop, and with their catchy tunes and unrelenting hooks, it’s not hard to imagine them easily transitioning to America — especially since they sing mostly in English.
