I couldn't find anything BUST-y on the racks for the past couple of weeks, and I know you gals were missing me, so I picked up this short graphic novel that came highly recommended by a couple of friends.
Suburban Glamour is an indie-rock fairy tale, not an entirely original story but a fun one. Jamie McKelvie's art is what really distinguishes this book from other changeling stories--it's bright-candy-colored and good enough to eat, with a foxy rock'n'roll ... Read More

Guest of Cindy Sherman is a compelling documentary about a guy who falls in love with the most influential female art star of our time, Cindy Sherman, and gets lost in the relationship.

Paul H-O has made both a touching boyfriend movie, and a scathing portrayal of the art world, with great footage from the 90's art scene.
I think like alot of people, ... Read More

Despite boy issues, though, Main Jane's goal is still to make art, and it is ... Read More

Photographer Jill Greenberg has gotten herself into a real shit storm since she posted some doctored images of McCain on her website a few weeks ago. She was hired by The Atlantic Monthly to shoot him, and not long afterward got creative with the photoshop, including a version with bloody fangs and even one with a monkey pooping on Mccains head(!) It all seems a little extreme to me, not to mention damaging to her career. (Apparently her agent dropped her like a ... Read More
