On Being Tumblr

On Being Tumblr

On Being with Krista Tippett is a public radio project delving into the human side of news stories + issues. Curated + edited by senior editor Trent Gilliss.

We publish guest contributions. We edit long; we scrapbook. We do big ideas + deep meaning. We answer questions.

We've even won a couple of Webbys + a Peabody Award.

You got it right, negevrockcity. There is something to be said for musical alliances that transcend the current environment, even if it’s only for an hour:

Leave it to HEAVY METAL to promote world peace. Israeli metal band Orphaned Land teamed up with Lebanese belly dancer Johayna Fakhri at Hellfest 2011 for a few songs on-set. They each came on-stage with their country’s flags afterwards.This is the way it should be. Leave warfare and hatred to the politicians, and just rock yr ass off in the meantime.
