“Remember that consciousness is power. Consciousness is education and knowledge. Consciousness is becoming aware. It is the perfect vehicle for students. Consciousness-raising is pertinent for power, and be sure that power will not be abusively used, but used for building trust and goodwill domestically and internationally. Tomorrow’s world is yours to build.” - Yuri Kochiyama, Japanese-American activist (May 19, 1921 - June 1, 2014)
I wrote this with Jessica as a follow-up to her previous guide to girl groups for The Toast, and in the process she opened my eyes to the particulars of different Tumblr-based fandoms and I got "Metronome" stuck in her head.

Earlier this week, Jessica and I talked more K-pop with subdee - the year in review and things to come ahead, along with a sprinkling of gossip about that tall Chinese guy from EXO - on The Singles Jukebox’s most recent podcast.
