  • MODERN EDEN

    MODERN EDEN

    Painter Bradley Platz and his wife Kim Larson, who has a background in jewelry making and sculpture, originally opened Modern Eden in North Beach a couple blocks away from its current Greenwich street location and were told 4 years later that their rent would be doubling. Kim tells me, “We could have given up so easily; it would have been by far the easier decision but we did’t want to see another business, another gallery go under. It diminishes the whole city that we kind of fell in love with and it’s changing but we’re so stubborn to hold on to it.”

  • THE WILD REEDS

    THE WILD REEDS

    I caught up with indie folk rockers The Wild Reeds at San Francisco’s Outside Lands festival, one of the last stops on a long west coast tour before they headed back to their native Los Angeles and then on to the East Coast for more shows. Check out their epic cover of “House of the Rising Sun”, an exclusive acoustic performance of their beautiful tune “Selfish” and my interview with these amazingly talented women who reflect on how they’ve evolved as performers and the power of music to make you feel connected during lonely moments when you’re convinced you’re “the weirdest person in the world.”

  • HIP HOP FOR CHANGE

    HIP HOP FOR CHANGE

    “We get a depiction of young brown and black people in the media that sets us up for failure. Our kids are getting ideals that they can never live up to instead of having an accessible form of expression that they can use to find out who they are… these cultural forms of expression are so necessary for us to have for ourselves as a community that it is a travesty to say the least what these corporations have done with the platform for our culture. So that’s what Hip Hop For Change is bringing back.”

  • INSPIRATION CAMPAIGN

    INSPIRATION CAMPAIGN

    “What I love about inspiration campaign is it’s reminding me that we’re in this together, and I am enough.” This was Inspiration Campaign’s 3rd year at the conference inspiring attendees to share their messages with the world and to participate in creating people-powered mass media as gifts to human consciousness.
