pgp392: a WildOrchid interlude…

A while back, I paid a visit to earthSista WildOrchid’s place. It was right after she’d gotten a new tattoo, I believe. I was always arguing with her about her hair at the time. She is such a rebel.Anyway, this is just a moment, at her place at the time, on her back deck. Being silly and playful about hair and tattoos. When it comes to art, food, fashion, health, fitness music, culture...

pgp389: a Punk Black Fest

The rhythms are discordant, raw and angry. The base is either on par or behind the roar of the guitar, screaming fire to patrons who lose themselves into the rage of music that others would say is not their own – ugly words that they all stopped listening to a long time ago… PUNK BLACK is an independent rock music showcase featuring musicians of color. Started less than a year ago, the event...

pgp385: WildOrchid on 50 Shades

 a movie review by WildOrchid Because people have forgotten the importance of picking up, opening and reading a book, we have hoes like Lisa Wilkinson http://news.distractify.com/matt-buco/50-shades-movie-review/) and other non-bookworms judging books based on the visual media. I am here to tell you to shut the fuck up and read the damn trilogy. Did the book represent BDSM appropriation? Yes it di...

Food, drink, music and muses… an AfroSocial

Food, drink, music and muses… an AfroSocial

a personal account… “Come out of the rain and be inspired.” That was the tag I shared in one of the invites I sent out for last night’s AfroSocial. Humidity hung in the air outside the Apache Cafe keeping it from getting too cold and while rain was a constant threat, the skies held back most of their tears. For this first AfroSocial of 2015 three earthSistas stepped up to t...

Pangea’s Lookbook: Manic Casual

These urbanists are resourceful and creative in their approach to fashion, accenting everyday fair with unique and sentimental accessories, creat...

pgp378: a busy week in the Garden…

I have to say, I did not see this coming. The week started rather spectacularly with an earthSista image shoot featuring new earthSista Raine. It was the beginning of her Oshun Series that she plans to elaborate on in the near future. The beautiful diva was adorned in gems provided by jewelry designer Zeus DeShaman, embellished by talented make-up artist, earthSista FURY and dressed by stylist Jam...

While all of our features are for everyone, this one is a special note for the artists and photographers who partake in the experiences we have every 2nd Monday (tonight!) at the Apache Cafe in Atlanta. There’s an ambiance in the place; a play of light and shadow that works with the location’s decor to create truly unique backdrops for potentially extraordinary images. Because of the l...

Bohemian Circus Reloaded: Dangerous, Wicked, Hypnotic

Bohemian Circus Reloaded: Dangerous, Wicked, Hypnotic

Miss JadeFox lives. A couple of weeks ago the earthSistas performed a theme at the Apache Cafe–posing for artists and photographers. VoodooChile. We each inhabited different incarnations of the woman of magic. We brought totems, masks, candles to allow ourselves to get into a trance. On the back patio, in the cool night air, we dress each other, paint our bodies, as if the act of prepping wa...
