75 years ago, on this date, Billie Holiday recorded a song that Time Magazine would call song of the century: Strange Fruit, a song written about a lynching in the South. 

Holiday first performed the song at Cafe Society in 1939. She said that singing it made her fearful of retaliation but, because its imagery reminded her of her father, she continued to sing the piece making it a regular part of her live performances. Because of the poignancy of the song, Josephson drew up some rules: Holiday would close with it; the waiters would stop all service in advance; the room would be in darkness except for a spotlight on Holiday’s face; and there would be no encore. During the musical introduction, Holiday would stand with her eyes closed, as if she were evoking a prayer.

"I think it’s funny when people say: I’m an individual. Whether you embrace your uniqueness or not, you are, in fact, an individual. One of a kind. The key is to wrap your arms around your idiosyncrasies and kiss your quirks full on the lips." - Troy Baker

If any of you have sent letters/postcards in the past and still want to (or want to start now idc) I have a new address. Took me a while I know. Anyway, just message me and I’ll send it to you.

i am longing for your poison
like a cancer for its prey
shot an arrow in your harbor
where you waited in the rain
