Diggin' in the Cybercrates: Internet Samples (Highly Quotable)

On the regular, Hip Hapa hooks you into the sites and sounds of the virtual world, offering up samples to help you make the perfect mix of your netsurfing. If you find a gem that needs inclusion, let us know and we'll post it.

"No-one is pure in Brazil. That's why the country has the face of the future."

"I'm paying homage to where a lot of Black music comes from... even if I do a bossa nova crooning joint, my understanding of it is informed by hip-hop."

"These people had lost everything. Buddhism taught them how to interpret that, how to get from an incarcerated state with one suitcase, to freedom. The teachings of priests in camps helped people get through the experience."

"Anyone can start a blog, and anyone can make it grow... But to keep it there? It’s fucking hard work, man. I’ve never worked so hard in my life. Eighty-hour weeks since I started."

Beyond those individual articles, here are a few sites to check out as well:

iPride: Family Pride in Mixed Heritage
Okinawa Peace Network of Los Angeles
The List: Project to Resettle Iraqi Allies

Thanks to Viv, Willie, Erica, Tarah, Ryan, and Kirk for the heads up. Keep 'em coming!
