Hi my name is Andra. I also go by Ra. 

I’ve always wanted to run a television network but, I made the mistake of earning a bachelors in fashion merchandising retail marketing. 

I also have a huge passion for music and recording arts and I am streaming on all platforms. 

This site contains the things I am inspired by, things I have been researchng and developing along with fragments of my work.

There’s no real fomula, I just do things as I can.

Explorations

Brief dives into the discography of women in music.








TV Killed The Radio Star

A playlist of delicious music videos. I created this playlist because of a need for background stimulation. This playlist now hosts over 150 inspiring music videos.

In 2019 New York Magazine published a future issue with predictions from trend forcasters and cultural commentators. One headline really stuck out to me; “In 2029, the Internet Will Make Us Act Like Medieval Peasants.” I was inspired, and since reading, I  began to see Medieval inspiration trickling into fashion and music. In 2022 I started tracking the resurgence on are.na. 
 
Designers from Balenciaga and The Row to Bianca Saunders were heavily influenced by Medieval fashion while musicians like Gunna released music featuring flute samples fit for knights at the round table.

Punk Futurism                                                                                                                                                

It’s black, it’s punk, it’s futurism, it’s hard. It’s metal cowboys and sunglasses at night. It’s a fast paced rollercoaster ride of emotions that will have you jumping up to your feet to join the mosh.
It’s not rock n roll; it’s ride or die.

Let’s not call it watered down but an evolution from its eastern reference points of African and Asia. East Meets West, Immigration, AAPI Meets Black America, (Blasian)
