#MondayMorningMuse: Patti Smith

Posted By Music, Women

For as long as I can remember, I have worshipped musicians. I used to rewind the Michael Jackson music video at the beginning of the Free Willy VHS tape over and over, thinking, ‘I will never be that cool’. I knew exactly how long to fast forward my Elton John cassette so I could listen […]

#MondayMorningMuse: Matriarchy

Posted By Women

I’ve recently discovered this new, badass Vice channel and blog called Broadly, and they did a piece on a small village in Samburu, Kenya called Umoja which literally is a “Land of Women.” I’ve also been binge-watching The Fall, and Detective Gibson (another totally different but equally awesome badass played by Gillian Anderson) mentions a […]

Posted By Music, Women

When I think of a woman who is inspiring not only to other artists, but to original thinkers… a woman who is a “one-in-a-million” type person and basically just really fucking cool… I think of Miss Erykah Badu. She didn’t demand respect or gain it over decades of being in the music business, she always […]

#MondayMorningMuse: Zerlina Maxwell

Posted By Women

A lot of people like to discredit social media. A lot of people think things like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are a complete waste of time. And if you were born sometime between 1945 and 1964, you are likely one of these people. It’s no secret that boomers (generally speaking) love to criticize social media […]
