Ribbon Around A Bomb

Femme Avant-core


I am San Francisco-based aesthete, collecting the beautiful, the beat, and the badass. I sometimes go by the name La Lengua- it’s the tongue, the language, and the neighborhood in the Mission where I live.

Ribbon Around a Bomb is ruminations and images compiled as an archive of objects and ideas cloaked in time. This space is for a community of people who adores art, music and fashion on the edge. Although RAAB maintains a local (hey, Bay Area!) lens, it is for anyone who wants to explore culture untainted by Ryan Seacrest, cat gifs, pictures of cute babies, Sarah Palin, and reality television stars. Ribbon Around a Bomb exists to inspire the brain-dead and bored, and to satisfy my need to research, curate, and share.

While most postings are overwhelming positive, we’re not afraid of open dialogue, criticism, and oh hell, let’s just come out and say it: straight up snark.

    I’ve noticed you post some really great content about your life in San Francisco. I’m working for a new start-up called HeyLets and we’re trying to get people excited about doing what you do. We want our users to rediscover their city through mini-recommendations from people with similar interests and hopefully pay it forward. I was wondering, would you be interested in sharing some of your positive experiences in your community with us? We’d love to hear what you have to say and help you promote your blog.
    Drop me a line if you’re interested in more info: adam@heylets.com
    Thanks for your time and keep up the good work!

      Thank you so much for reading! And thank God for the wonders of the internet, which help those of us with weird taste find each other!

      I don’t have a Spotify account… but I was considering a couple months ago getting one. I will investigate further and def find you there if I do it.
