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.

In the video "Lemonade", CocoRosie’s characters wear colorful mustaches and exquisite 19th century inspired gowns while strolling through footage of a hauntingly beautiful Victorian-style mansion. The interaction between light and dark themes resonates deeply in their work, as Sierra Casady notes:

“In general, light and dark are something to balance one another in life, and as children we have not yet decided and differentiated which things are light and dark so there is this murky experience of what’s happening, we haven’t decided what is good and bad yet.”
