  Give Up and Give | Give Orange
Give Orange invites you to Give Up and Give.
The First Friday of Lent we are asking people to give up a trip to the movies and donate the money saved to the Genocide Intervention Network--an organization working to stop the genocide in Darfur.
Give Up and Give might be a way for some to practice their Lenten faith, a way to take time every Friday as some prepare for Passover, or simply a good exercise in consuming less and giving more while making our world better.

 Amazon.com: Give Up: Music: The Postal Service   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Give Up, the debut release by this indie supergroup composed of Ben Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie and Jimmy Tamborello from Dntel, is a smart, quaint, and often transcendent little pop record.
The remainder of Give Up is solid, though Gibbard's lyrics are less potent by the middle of the record, and Tamborello burrows perhaps a little too deeply into some of the thinner sounds of the cold '80s era that inspires him.
Give Up is the perfect combination of laid-back, relaxing, feel good music.

This over-emphasis in 'Give up Activism' on the theory of roles and on the subjective side of things has led some people to fail to recognise the original impetus behind the piece.
Although the piece is called 'Give up Activism', I did not want to suggest at all that people stop trashing GM crops, smashing up the City and disrupting the gatherings of the rich and powerful, or any of the other myriad acts of resistance that 'activists' engage in.
Although 'Give up Activism' neglected to recommend any actual change in behaviour outside of saying that we needed one, perhaps now it would be appropriate to say something about this.

 The Postal Service: Give Up: Pitchfork Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
First, the bad news: Give Up doesn't offer 45 solid minutes of the same wholesale excellence that appeared in condensed form on "(This Is) The Dream of Evan and Chan"; if anything, the album's occasional missteps serve to elucidate what exactly made the first collaboration between Tamborello and Gibbard so effective.
Fortunately, Give Up overcomes its highly questionable lyrical choices, and the sometimes painful duets between Gibbard and indie folkster Jen Wood, purely on the strength of Gibbard's consistently strong melodies, which carry far greater impact in the context of Tamborello's hyperactive electro-pop than they have on recent Death Cab for Cutie releases.
While it may be impressive that the unified and cohesive vision of Give Up was the result of a par avion collaboration, it's anything but surprising given the talent behind it and the immense chemistry shared by these two musicians.

 Give up Activism (Do or Die)
The division of labour is the foundation of class society, the fundamental division being that between mental and manual labour.
The division of labour operates, for example, in medicine or education - instead of healing and bringing up kids being common knowledge and tasks that everyone has a hand in, this knowledge becomes the specialised property of doctors and teachers - experts that we must rely on to do these things for us.
Similarly, the various networking forums that have recently sprung up around the country - the Rebel Alliance in Brighton, NASA in Nottingham, Riotous Assembly in Manchester, the London Underground etc. have a similar goal - to get all the activist groups in the area talking to each other.

Give Up ultimately becomes a beautiful lesson in how to dance life's pain away.
Give Up's one real pitfall is that, on the whole, it sounds almost exactly like you'd expect a collaboration between these two men would, or for that matter, should, sound -- which certainly isn't to say that the music isn't enjoyable, or memorable.

 TANGMONKEY.COM [ REVIEW: The Postal Service: Give Up ]
Their debut album, Give Up, makes them the latest to question the laws of common sense.
Give Up’s zenith is its fourth song, the "Hey Paula"-for-2003, "Nothing Better." The song has Gibbard’s character clumsily trying to win back his girl, lame marriage proposal and all, and when the beat drops and the faux-French-horns swell behind her as she pronounces, "I feel I must interject here," we can understand why he’s scrambling.
Give Up has an obvious formula: upbeat tempo, swaying/bubbling/accordion-mocking keyboards and Gibbard’s poetry-laced storytelling.

The Postal Service's "Give Up" is so good that it could easily induce a nosebleed.
"Give Up" is an even partnership between the two genres.
While songs like "Nothing Better" and the single "Such Great Heights" are ultra-tender, one of the standout tracks on "Give Up" is the dark, brooding "This Place is a Prison." It features the sparsest instrumental work on the album, and its combination of live and mechanical drums creates an amazing synergy.

"Give Up" ends on a slightly darker note with the dark, grittier "This Place is a Prison" and the fast-paced but strange "Brand New Colony," before finishing off with the magnificently cacophonous "Natural Anthem."
It brings up dark cities, flying couples, gaudy apartments and places where things are sad and a little dreamy.
"Give Up" by the Postal Service is one of those albums you would never sit down and describe as the the kind of music that you prefer to listen to.

 SI.com - Gymnastics:¬†FIG wants Hamm to give back gold - Friday August 27, 2004 10:30AM
ATHENS, Greece (AP) -- Gymnastics officials asked Paul Hamm to give up his gold medal as the ultimate show of sportsmanship, but the U.S. Olympic Committee told them to take responsibility for their own mistakes.
In a dispute over scores that has turned into a political squabble, the head of the International Gymnastics Federation suggested in a letter to Hamm that giving the all-around gold medal to South Korea's Yang Tae-young "would be recognized as the ultimate demonstration of fair play by the whole world."
Through his agent, Hamm declined comment, but he has said in the past that he has no intentions of giving up his medal unless ordered to do so by FIG.

 AlterNet: Dean Supporters, Don't Give Up
I can see, just from surfing the web, the debilitating affect the landslide loss in Iowa had on so many people who had placed so much hope in the man who created a grassroots revolution and was unrelenting in his attacks on Bush and on the war.
Although the vast majority ended up going for Kerry and Edwards, I am convinced that the electorate in that state was invigorated by the Dean campaign -- whose entire message was that you CAN make a difference.
To double the number of Democrats who showed up in Iowa this week means that many independents, Greens, and former Republicans have seen enough of the mess created by George W. Bush.
