KNOW THE NAMES of your state’s congressional candidates. KNOW WHAT THEY STAND FOR for. Link in Bio will tell you everything you need to know about your state's candidate. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 For our under 25 American fans... HERE’S WHY IT MATTERS Quick civics lesson: All races below the top one, mistakenly viewed by many as the “most important” race (President, U.S. Senators, Congressmen, Governors), are called DOWN BALLOT RACES and they’re very, very important. They’re important because many of the candidates running in them are counting on you to ignore/not care, so they can be elected and start telling you how to live your life. The Federal elections/candidates get all the media attention, but State legislatures are where the real power is. Remember this. They can make your life easier or harder. The biggest voting impact you can make- that you will feel directly -is at the State level, not Federal. These elected officials make laws that affect your daily life. Clean water, health care access, public schools, among the biggies. You’re young, these are not immediate issues for you. But some laws they pass will still be in effect when they are. But the real kicker is: State representatives also make VOTING LAWS and create VOTING DISTRICTS, which directly decide whether or not YOUR VOICE is heard at all. In 34 states, state legislators draw the actual maps that decide how you’re represented at the Federal level. So filling State Houses with candidates you believe in and hold values you care deeply about is how you bring your will to Washington. This is why “down ballot” races (State level) are so important. These elected officials WILL speak for you, if you don’t show up. Show up. Please please vote down ballot. Again, check the link. It may FEEL like you cannot make a difference, but THIS IS NOT THE CASE: 82% of ALL state legislative seats are UP FOR RE-ELECTION on Nov. 6th. That’s a lot of new blood. Go from the ground up. Repour the foundation. Get after it. Stay informed, at the very least. The battle for progressive change in our country is not in Washington, it’s on your doorstep. @a_c_r_o_n_y_m

The world just got 8lbs heavier. Thank you to everyone who fought for and protected our privacy during this incredible and beautiful time in our lives. Everyone is happy and healthy and loving every moment of this. I could not be more excited to bring a baby girl into this world at this moment. We will raise her to be powerful, to always speak her mind and heart and to live without fear. It’s a brand new day and a brave new world and they are both beautiful.

In search of quiet thoughts and deep breathes. I’m done with being sea level. Nothing makes sense down there.
I don’t know. I just liked the picture.
“There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part. You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it — that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!” - Mario Savio, 1964 “I want to poop here.” - Charleston Zappa, 2018
Thanks for always shining the light @arcadefire. We needed that.

But it is important to thank all the people that play a role in getting someone like me dressed and into a room to sit still in front of a camera. it’s not a small feat. A giant thank you to @shradercomms, @blackcatstyling and @elenapacienza for making me presentable this weekend. Grateful to you all for your kindness, patience and talent.
