Antonia Farzan, The Washington Post Published 7:07 am CDT, Monday, July 30, 2018 "Please don't shoot me," Thurman Blevins begged as the two Minneapolis police officers closed in during a foot chase. "Leave me alone." Seconds later, he was dead, with an object police say was a handgun lying in the alleyway next to him. The exchange is captured in body camera footage released by the city of Minneapolis on Sunday, a little over a month after Blevins, 31, was fatally shot. Less than 24 hours after it was taken, his death on June 23rd would lead to protests across the city as activists decried the death of yet another black man at the hands of white police officers.

When I looked through my archive to select a picture for this blog post, all but one of the photos I found had Brandon surrounded by friends. For those of us who knew him, this is not a surprise. He was such a magnetic soul – many of us were drawn to him, to his brightness and his candor, his poetry and his politics, his serious commitment to social justice and his hilarious stories that often veered into “too much information” territory. For me, my memories of Brandon include Lord of the Rings trivia contests, walks under starlight far from the light pollution of the city, and getting pulled over in a rental car on the way to a funeral. Lots of camping trips, nerd of color bonding sessions, soccer games in Powderhorn on Sundays, and poetry readings. Like many others, I was grateful to have Brandon in my life, with all the different collisions and intersections and sheer joy that he brought with him. When I got the news of his passing … [Read more...] about Orbit: Remembering Brandon Lacy Campos
4 Lucy Jones reviews Natalie Merchant's gig at the Royal Albert Hall From the return of The X Files to All Saints’ unlikely comeback, the Nineties revival is well and truly upon us. While some aspects of that decade’s culture would benefit from being forgotten, Natalie Merchant, who released Tigerlily, her cult record, in 1995, is a worthy survivor – and still able to sell out the Royal Albert Hall. The 52-year-old last played the venue a quarter of a century ago, as part of New York alt-rock band 10,000 Maniacs. After honing her craft for 12 years, Merchant struck out on her own in 1993, forging an unpredictable songwriting path with seven critically acclaimed solo albums. It all began with Tigerlily, which sold over five million copies and justified last November’s reworking, Paradise Is There. Despite this, the show was no nostalgia fest. A string trio and accordion replaced Merchant’s more familiar electric guitars and … [Read more...] about Natalie Merchant is a welcome addition to the Nineties revival
