Functional and Fashionable Flute Accessories by Andrea “Fluter Scooter” Fisher

Functional and Fashionable Flute Accessories by Andrea “Fluter Scooter” Fisher

I have been playing the flute my whole life (since I was nine) and I realized I never gave it a second thought to use anything other than the original case my flute(s) had come in. How could I have not investigated the options of fashionable, functional flute bags—even musicians should have a bit of pizzazz when it comes to their gear. Andrea Fisher’s designs range from eye-popping to subtle to “blingy!” These flute bags are gorgeous, and I intend to show mine off at my very next performance.

Parisian Painter Michael Stervinou – Artist and Creative Muse

On Friday, July 29, 2016, I met and interviewed Parisian painter Michael Stervinou at the La Jolla Fashion Film Festival held at the city’s Modern Art Museum. We spoke about his involvement in one of the film, The One 3: Horror Sex Fashion, of which three of his paintings were used in a very unusual way. Dressed in a classic navy shirt and jacket, and topped with a whimsical leopard bowtie, Stervinou created his own fashion statement.

Voices Up . . . Silence Begets Violence

We’ve protested. We’ve rioted. We’ve marched. We’ve cried in press conferences. We’ve appealed to the media. We’ve prayed. We’ve forgiven. We’ve done everything we know to do. And nothing is working. We need your help–you–the unaffected. Just like the 60s when Blacks and Whites marched arm in arm. We are only 12 percent of the population. And the rank and file American is weary of protest.
