"Honestly" by br0ke / Caroline Calderon

I’ve been tryin’ to find
the words to describe
how you make me feel so alive

You really caught my eye
I’m smitten, tongue-tied
baby girl you got to realize

That I’m down for you and all that you do
No need to rush I’ll wait for you
‘cause you’re worth it

I wanna hear you speak your mind
you’re not alone, I’ll stay by your side
I know you’re hurtin’

CHORUS

Honestly I’m in too deep
and I just can’t sleep
my every thought is you

Honestly I’m in too deep
and I just can’t see
livin’ life without you
Honestly I’m into you

Verse 2

You’ve been tryin’ to find
the moment and time
to leave all you knew behind

I really want to try
to make it worth your while
baby girl I’m not gonna lie

That I’m down for you and all that you do
Take your time to make your move
girl you’re perfect

I wanna hear you speak your mind
Don’t be afraid to let me inside
I know you’re hurtin’

CHORUS

BRIDGE

You and I have been hurt before
But I ain’t gonna walk out that door
I just wanna get to know you better
I don’t know where I’m going with this
but I know I don’t want to miss
your sweet company
please forgive me

CHORUS

CALLING ALL PINAYS and ALLIES…

Background and Purpose:

March is Womyn’s Herstory Month and to celebrate, I want to create a video that acknowledges the Pinay with all my family, friends, and community. I wrote a song titled “Pinay” because I was frustrated with the media’s misrepresentations of womyn, particularly Asian womyn. This song is inspired by all the pinays I’ve come across: mothers, educators, students, domestic workers, etc.

How to Get Involved:

- Submit a video clip of you and your homies dancing and singing along to this anthem/love song dedicated to those who identify as Pinay. You don’t have to be pinay to submit a video, EVERYONE IS ENCOURAGED TO PARTICIPATE! Have fun and be creative.

- Please send your submissions to THEbr0ke@yahoo.com by March 2, 2014 (Sunday). You can attach the video to the email (if it doesn’t exceed the limit), upload it to youtube and share the link or you can send it through a file-sharing website such as dropbox, hulkshare, or google drive.

Film Title: “API Hair & Queerness” by Sally Tran (full version)

So two summers ago, I independently worked on a short documentary on how hair plays a role within shaping our identities and explore what are the factors that render them.

Before I began this project, my hair was at the length of my hips. People have told me that during this time, i looked and presented more “straight” and “femme” and that “I was too pretty to be gay.”

Beauty privilege? Passing privilege? Asian privilege?

Every time anyone told me, “Oh you look so fucking pretty because of your hair,” i began to believe that my beauty could only exist because of my long silky black hair.

I felt vulnerable, I felt restricted, i felt conforming. That this piece of hair that was dangling side to side from my scalp is what defined my beauty.

Within queer spaces, i felt as if there were levels of “queer authenticity” that I had to pass in order to be taken seriously. I felt that I wasn’t “queer enough” because I had long hair, and because i had passing privilege, I felt a lot of femmephobia and the pressure to do this DYKE INITIATION and finally cut my hair which is one of the reasons how this project came about.

I wanted to document the experience of individuals within the queer and Asian womyn/trans community throughout California and explore how gender presentation plays a big role in shaping our different, unique, and intersectional identities.

**note this is my first ever film, so theres several glitches in there so be gentle… and i luhh you**

Enjoy

This summer I am celebrating my sixth year of writing songs. Thank you to all who have supported my music, I truly appreciate the love. I write music that is honest and personal. I write music that’s relevant to my experiences and I hope yall can relate.

For all you OG Caroline Calderon fans, I think you’ll appreciate this new original. It took me over two years to write this song, hope you enjoy and click share.

"Songs About You"

Intro - (http://br0ke.bandcamp.com/track/unhappy)

I sing songs about
the sun and breeze (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJh9P2euUX8)
I write of a world filled
with color (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rdWi4vKsqc)

I sing songs about
you loving me (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzT6MdWMntM)
I write of being
colorless 
I’m colorless without you

My lyrics be pullin others in
but I ain’t interested in them
I just wanna know if you’re still listening
I know we said that we’re through
but i keep drunk texting you
impaired hearts speak sober truths

I guess what i’m trying to say is
I keep writing songs, songs about you
writing songs, songs about you

I sing songs
an ode to memories (http://br0ke.bandcamp.com/track/in-the-summertime)
I write of
each changing season (http://br0ke.bandcamp.com/track/seasons)

I sing songs
hoping you’ll hear me
I write of
my reason for living each season is you (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ow9TNiatfLA)

My lyrics be pullin others in
but i ain’t interested in them
I just wanna know if you’re still listening
it’s obvious that we’re through
but I don’t know what to do
each damn chord reminds me of you (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrI1cTRX1fc)

with you, with you

“It looks like you’re six weeks and one minute pregnant!
Have some diapers.”

Here’s a laugh about the unconstitutional ND abortion restriction laws so you don’t rage yourself into a heart attack.
