The latest photoshoots and performances from poet and model Darrah de jour.

Zombie Bounty Hunter, M.D.

Hey friends!

I had the pleasure of working with director Pirooz Kalayeh (SHOPLIFTING FROM AMERICAN APPAREL) and bestselling Zen author Brad Warner on a fun zombie spoof movie! If you happen to remember, I had a two-day shoot with this team in 2012 as part of HARDCORE ZEN, a mockumentary about Warner’s life as a Zen monk. I played Debra, a Zen groupie.

For ZOMBIE BOUNTY HUNTER, M.D., I play Lara Steele of Steele News, a blogger on a mission, during the zombie apocalypse! Watch the Indiegogo campaign trailer below, and please support us so we can play at festivals and spread our debauchery nationwide!

The Indiegogo fundraiser has some pretty cool perks, such as artwork by Jeffrey Brown (DARTH VADER & SON) digital downloads of the soundtrack featuring SPINDRIFT, autographed books by Brad Warner, and DVDs, Blu Rays, and flash drives with all kinds of extras.

Let me know what you think in the comments!

Thanks & Kiss! xoxo

Darrah on The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet

Screen Shot 2012-06-19 at 7.01.24 PM

I’m really grateful to appear in all of the episodes of The Conversation, as a “woman on the street.” Better-termed, a notable woman who isn’t a celebrity (yet). ;)

If you haven’t been watching, be sure to catch up at The Conversation website, which also serves as a community for women’s voices and stories. Men are welcome there to. Let’s learn from one another, so that we can get just that much closer to the elusive… UNITY.

View the latest episode, where I’m sprinkled throughout, dishing on topics like “your biggest vice,” “your favorite sex position,” and “what turns you on”? I’m looking forward to some of the other questions I answered in my segment, like “what would you tell your 14-year-old self”? Perhaps in a future episode!

This week’s episode was a sparkler, mostly because of Kelly Preston’s insight about sexual attraction, and Mira Sorvino – who serves as the UN Ambassador To Combat Human Trafficking – revealing the bleak realities of human trafficking and abuse of women, and her grandmother’s bravery amid domestic violence. Mira makes a great distinction between being sexually forthright and empowered, and allowing yourself to be objectified or taken advantage of. Personally, I wish our society would remove the burden and blame from women in avoiding rape, dealing with rape, and having to shirk the shame from being raped, instead insisting that Men learn to end the machist culture that promotes it. Talk about an opportunity for a unified front and spiritual elevation!

The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet and exec producer Demi Moore, airs next on June 21, 11/10C on Lifetime. Catch the latest news and watch episodes and clips for free by signing up for their mailing list.
