In a new original song and video, Fred Goldring, the man who co-produced 2008’s Yes We Can with will.i.am delivers a collaborative effort to encourage people to vote, and to vote left. Titled after Obama’s election campaign the track features artists Ne-Yo, Natasha Bedingfield, jazz musician Herbie Hancock, rock trio Delta Rae, and Goo Goo Dolls frontman Johnny Rzeznik. The lyrics consist of words like “dignity” and “equality” while the President’s standing-ovation-inducing DNC speech fades in and out over the background vocals of a harmonious choir. Whether or not you agree with this video, it’s important to have your voice be heard. Be sure to set some time aside on Tuesday, November 6 to vote. Watch the video after the jump!

Advocate Art Dept Mitt Romney Vanity Fair
There’s been reports that republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney had a reputation for being quite the prankster and bully in his formative years. Taking this idea, and running with it (very very creatively), Vanity Fair depicts those years in a slideshow imagining eight faux photos from his high school yearbook. The above image has a young and jokingly effeminate Romney limp-wristed and clearly mocking gay classmates. Vanity Fair's caption reads “Uproarious old Mitt does his best Liberace!”

What would your caption say?

We came across this great fractal-rainbow image of Obama. We contacted the artist to tell us a bit about it.

My name is Tom Vasquez, I am an artist and designer living in Brooklyn, New York. Earlier this month, I was inspired to create this image of President Obama as a tribute to his historic decision in support of marriage equality. I admire the president for taking a stand for what’s right. Since creating this piece, I’ve had many requests to put it on tee-shirts for Pride month and beyond. My ultimate hope is to have the president sign one of the limited edition prints I will be producing and to have it displayed prominently in my apartment!”   www.tomvasquez.com
