Started as a place to post my academic writing on various subjects relevant to literature and philosophy, but I'm not really sure anymore.

She's a Replicant, Isn't She?
ArchAndroid Suites 2 and 3
produced by Kevin
Brought to us by Big Boi of
Outkast fame, and heard on Fun's hit songWe Are Young, Janelle Monae
brings back the Mowtown soul sound like no other. I have a huge crush on
this girl. Not only is she very pretty, she has an unforgettable visual style. She is definitely more than able to fill the void left by
James Brown himself, which is made evident on the singlesTightropeandCold War. Monae has a bold,
strong voice, and for a small woman, has a bold, strong presence. She
also thinks she's some sort of Bladerunner-esque android, which is super
awesome. I don't usually go for this particular genre of music, but you know, sometimes I need something a little different. The Tightrope video is worth a watch also.
