THE INVASION COMING SOON


I know its taken a minute but Curious Tribe's first mini magazine entitled "ICON," focusing on the icons in our curious world, will be hitting a few select places very very soon.

Articles include:
fashion from a neo-hippie perspective, the wine of choice of the new urban professional, and a detailed analysis of the true voice behind snoop dogg's "sensual seduction" and kanye west's "stronger".

I'm very excited to see the reaction.


WHAT IS CURIOUS TRIBE?


Curious Tribe is what happens when a group of friends decide that they have the power to change the world. One project at a time, we plan to redefine the way the media portrays youth culture. We call New Orleans home, but we plan to affect everyone everywhere.
