La Locura Cura* - Relief Through Music @ Kimya Dawson 4 Displaced Teens: "i am just imagining having my cat die without listening to sting."


  • GAWD! THIS BREAKS MY HEART. I know you were also a geeky teen (pre-teen!) music freak - probably hard to get stuff, too - and too smart & sensitive for your own good. Help find these kids, now displaced by Rita. And help them help other kids & teen survivors of Katrina. Mp3s, iPods, CDs, tape recorders, old Walkmans (men?), karioki machines, blank sheet music composition paper, whatever, send it to these kids (but check Texas addresses first). Throw in some gel pens & blank books while you're at it. Poetry books. Gloria Velásquez novels. Laptops, server space (can't we get the companies to donate?) Yeah!
    "i can't imagine being a teenager and going through tough times without my music.

    and i am just imagining having my cat die without listening to sting. or being too shy to talk to ed without being able to listen to debbie gibson. or being pissed off about having to clean my room without having a suicidal tendencies cd to throw stuff around to. or driving around aimlessly without the violent femmes. or ending a fight with my brother without blasting metallica.

    imagine losing your home, all of your possessions, and members of your family, some of your friends...and just sitting in a strange place. being told you can't go back AT LEAST for 2 months, but maybe FOREVER.

    it might help a little to put on some headphones and escape.

    so please help in any way you can. feel free to donate money too. this way if sheila and her friends meet anyone with a request for an album they are desperate to own again they can go get them a copy.
