On September 21st, 2013 Tita Suicide will team up with renowned artist and curator Fang Ling Lee, in association with Lords of Gastown, and HUSH Magazine for XOXO Erotica, an international art exhibit and event, designed to bring the world wide web and the SuicideGirls community into a gallery setting.

Exploring the concept of “Empowerment vs. Exploitation,” the exhibit will focus on the “sensuality and seductiveness of the female form; and how it has helped shape and mold the Internet landscape.”

Online muses including Vancouver SuicideGirls Aadie, Cruella, Rydell, Rin, and Tita, as well as pin up starlettes, burlesque beauties, and adult stars will serve as inspiration for featured artists including members and supporters of the SuicideGirls community like Mandy Tsung, tmronin, Terby Wonder, and Aaron White. The resulting creations will surprise and delight patrons with their unique interpretation of the “Erotica meets the Internet” theme.

In addition to the real time art show, an online version of the show will be available in real time via social media channels such as Twitter, Facebook and Google hangout. Using this format; the artists, guests and media can experience an expanded conversation about erotic art, as well as unlock behind the scenes photos & video, and discounts on art and prints.

Morcheeba’s lush sound – which is topped off by singer Skye Edwards’ velvety soft, soothing and sensual voice – is like a warm bath. It’s something you should surrender and sink into.

Coming to the fore in the mid-nineties alongside such artists as Portishead, Tricky and Massive Attack, Morcheeba helped define the trip hop genre with the mellow vibes and downtempo grooves of their seminal 1996 debut, Who Can You Trust. They’ve always refused to be confined by the tenets of trip hop however, and in the intervening years the UK trio – which is comprised of Edwards and brothers Paul and Ross Godfrey – have transcended the genre they helped create.

Though Morcheeba’s music is often supremely relaxing, it’s never tired, and their forthcoming studio album, the band’s eigth, is no exception. While retaining their unique warm and mellow sound, and delving back into their hip hop roots, the new release, Head Up High, has a subtle yet invigorating upbeat kick – something the band refer to as “Morcheeba with a pulse.”

On the eve of a string of North American and European dates, we caught up with Edwards to talk about the new album, which hits stores on October 14th.

Read our exclusive interview with Skye Edwards of Morcheeba on SuicideGirls.com.

Morcheeba are playing the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, CA on Friday, September 20th and the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA on Saturday, September 21st. For more info visit Morcheeba.co.uk/.

I’ve always been a hopeless romantic. As tough as I make myself out to be, when it comes down to it, I have always believed in the concept of love really being all you need in life. I have never been able to understand women who married for money or notoriety; how can you look yourself in the mirror every day? Growing up I loved fairy tales; I always listened, unable to sleep until happily ever after. I suppose I still believe that’s a thing, happily ever after. Or is it?

As my 31st birthday approaches I am acutely aware that I am not where I thought I would be by this age. I am not married, I don’t own a house, I don’t have kids, I don’t have money saved – hell, I don’t even have a boyfriend. Am I broken? Has believing in something perfect turned me off to something realistic?

As the minutes tick by and turn to hours that turn to weeks that turn to years, I’m wondering, does that fairy tale still exist? Is love all you really need, or is stability something that I should be looking for as well? I have always found comfort in looking back on my dating history. I have loved so many types of people: tall, short, fat, hairy, bald, muscular… Some have been drop dead gorgeous, other have left my friends wondering if I had gone temporarily blind. Either way, I have always loved every single one of those men. I don’t care one way or another what they looked like or what they had to offer besides their love – and I have never, ever been sorry.

Are things different now? Should I be worried if someone I care for isn’t perfect on paper? Is love really just… enough? My favorite love story of all time is Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations. For those who haven’t read it, it’s about a boy who falls in love with a girl at a young age. She is everything to him, and she eventually breaks his heart, and he is ruined. The story takes you through his whole life with her, without her, his life thinking of her, getting over her, running into her years later (just like we all run into ex’s), and in the end, they somehow wind up together. Years pass, lives change, marriages happen and decay, children, jobs, family… Life happens. And in the end, they just knew it was love the whole time. It’s perfect. Is that the way it could all be? Or is it just that, a tale woven by an author in the 1860s?

It doesn’t matter either way. I find that no matter what I tell myself, no matter what I feel like I should do, my heart is always going to lead the way. I don’t care if you don’t have any money, I don’t care if you don’t have the perfect job. I don’t care if you’re a 30-year-old bartender, a broke ass writer, or a fancy pants pro-wrestler on TV. When it comes to matters of the heart, I will always be that hopeless romantic.

As black hearted as I feel sometimes there is always that hope, that faith that love is simply enough. I am lucky to have loved deeply in my life, and I know what it is, and what it’s capable of. As 31 approaches, I don’t feel lost in love at all. I feel in control, like I won’t settle for anything but head over heels, totally blind, never ever looking back love. And that is anything but hopeless.

About Zak Smith (@ZakSmithSabbath)
Zak Smith, also known as Zak Sabbath, is an American artist and alternative porn star. He was born in Syracuse, New York in 1976, and grew up in Washington, D.C. After receiving a BFA from Cooper Union in 1998, he studied at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and went on to receive an MFA from Yale University in 2001. He lived and worked in Brooklyn until October, 2007, when he moved to Los Angeles.

Zak made his pornographic debut in 2006 under the pseudonym Zak Sabbath, in the film Barbed Wire Kiss, by director Benny Profane. In the porn blog Fleshbot, Smith mentions working on a project to help fund a film student’s NYU thesis project entitled Freaky Kids I & II (although most of the money he makes in porn is actually donated to activist group Food Not Bombs). He followed this up with an appearance opposite Pixie Pearl in Eon McKai’s debut film for Vivid Entertainment, Girls Lie, and subsequently appeared in Bullets And Burlesque with Sasha Grey, Marie Luv, and Satine Phoenix, and Vivid’s Hospital with Coco Velvet and Mandy Morbid.

Often referred to as the king of the art punks, Zak is on his way to art world domination. Represented by Fredericks & Freiser, his paintings of girls have sold to some of the most prestigious art institutions in the US. His portrait of Sawa Suicide graced the walls of the Whitney Museum in New York, and the Museum of Modern Art now owns his portrait of Charlie Suicide. His books, Gravity’s Rainbow, We Did Porn and Pictures Of Girls are available in fine bookstores.

Let us answer life’s questions – because great advice is even better when it comes from SuicideGirls.


[Casca in Professor]

Q. I’ve been seeing this girl for about a month or two now and everything seems pretty good. There were a couple of other guys in the picture at first, but now it seems she’s narrowed it down to me, though we haven’t made anything official. We talk pretty regularly and the other day she told me she was seriously considering becoming a stripper. Normally, from any other girl, this would have been a major turn on and a source of enthusiasm from me. But with her, I get these awful negative feelings when I think about it. I really wanna be supportive cause I can tell its something she’s excited about, but I know just thinking about it really hurts. Not really sure how to approach the situation. Advice?

A: I think it is only natural that you would be apprehensive about this. This is a girl who you obviously care about and the idea of stripping will put all sorts of pictures in your head. I think you need to have a proper sit down with her and discuss it.

How does she feel about it and what are her reasons for wanting to do it? Will she be safe where she intends to work? Tell her how you feel, and your worries about the situation. If you say everything is fine when it isn’t this could cause strain on the relationship down the line.

When I first became an SG my partner said he was all for it, but as time went on and I wanted to shoot more he finally told me he wasn’t happy during an argument. After that, we had a really good talk and got everything out in the open, and he is OK with it now. I think communication is the key.

Take care,

Casca
