The Groundshaker – Grace Jones

I was obsessed with Grace Jones in the 80’s, particularly after watching A View to a Kill and Conan the Destroyer. BUT, living in a Bible belt world I began to actually look down on her art and freedom – which at the time was labeled everything from a whore, to irresponsible, to a sell-out. Some of that fell off with her depiction of the Queen in Shaka Zulu.

As a kid in the 80’s, I watched MTV whenever possible. It helped to better understand the NYC universe. We wanted to be Turbo and Ozone, loved the Jungle Brothers and De La Soul, and wanted to live the nightlife of all the knock-off Studio 54’s (where Grace Jones was once a fixture).

Hard to hear, but you should get the point.

It was vicarious – it was the fantasy… New York had its mystique and it was irreplaceable. It felt good to play our house music cassettes and of course, I could fantasize about Grace Jones all I wanted!

And now, at 71 solar returns , the Taurus, the bull, Grace Jones is still on fire – fresh, flirty, and fine.  I’m still celebrating this ground-shaking Jamaican born beauty.  And, who can forget the legendary Strange’ birthing the perfume bottle in Boomerang – or resist the pussy, pussy, pussy call – classic.  #naturistvibe

Really Tumblr??

Where do we go now? Newgrounds, Pillowfort, MeWe? What happened? Too much porn addiction or just some conservative, self-righteous influence that truly caused for Tumblr to bend and cower? It was a bit unbelievable until it actually happened.

Well, indeed a number of people have migrated to MeWe, and Colors of a Nudist led the way for many. It was such a dope Page in Tumblr, opening the minds of those who were on the fence about letting go and living a natural life. They promoted the various nudist gatherings across the globe, offered serious encouragement, and even good conversation if you needed. Essentially, they were the ideal social media platform for naturists of color in particular, and all naturist in general. It is inevitable – things change… and we will have to wait and see how this goes! (Fingers crossed) Find them by clicking the logo below.
