Feeling a Political Wednesday: The Giant Awakens & Tori Amos’ Anti-War album

The Giant Awakens is a DVD compilation of compelling short films from all around the country, due to hit the streets in the weeks before Mayday 2007. Shot, edited, and brought together by a network of independent video activists, graphic designers, community organizers, musicians, and immigrant rights activists, it is a collective memory and a tool to inspire action this MayDay 2007, when the Giant will raise its voice again to say: we are one people, without borders.

My video for Pistolera’s song “Cazador” will be included on this DVD and I am looking forward to checking out the other contributions.

Tori Amos’ new album American Doll Posse will be available May 1st. It will have several anti-war songs and she will also be touring Europe beginning May 28th (according to her MySpace page). I might see her perform in Paris in June, I hope!

Check out tomorrow morning for an interview with Amos about the album, her tour, and inspirations. I read it already, haha ;P
