Katie Stelmanis has the voice of an angel. Aside from having a Facebook fan page that says it in print, with hundreds of followers who agree, it's just true. It is. Katie and her band, which is Carmen Elle on guitar and back ground vocals, and Maya Postepski on drums, opened for Fucked Up at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple on Thursday and were able to turn a crowd of ruffians into instant new fans.  The setting for the show was dreamy in itself, as the Brooklyn ...

So what have you been up to for the past few years of your life? Did you happen to make a massively important documentary that explores the controversy over what the Bible has to say about homosexuality being a sin? NO? Well Chicago filmmaker Ky Dickens did.  For the past few years, Ky and Producer/PR lady Kristen Kaza traveled from city to small town, to armpit of the world in order to interview common folk and religious leaders from both the team gay and ...

No More Exercise?!

BY Intern nicole! in General |

It seems that every subway car I enter, every typical women's magazine I browse through, every article about shoes I glance at, a leggy ad (or mention) for the new shoe wonder, FitFlop, is staring back at me in all its glossy glory. The ad itself is intriguing...a shoe with a gym built right in? Whaaaaaa? According to the FitFlop website, these little gems have been biomechanically engineered to: increase leg, calf and gluteal muscle ... Read More
Can you guess what I am? I am really, really good at dreamcatching now and you can be to - check out the Dec/Jan issue of BUST when it drops for my super easy instructions. I wish I could wear this everyday. Not only did everyone that looked at me smize but I smiled so much back at 'em that my face hurt the next day! Long live Halloween. I was seriously in awesome-rager-afterglow for two days. I may wear this again next year, make some fake weed nugs and go as a ... Read More
An article on Jezebel, got me thinking about the affect MAD MEN mania may have on our culture. In a blurb about a recent study from the UK newspaper, The Telegraph (regarding the shocking treatment of modern secretaries), Jezebel posted a picture of the gals from Mad Men. Though Jez didn't explain the choice in photography, it is clear when one thinks of a misogynistic office environment, one thinks of our favorite ad agency, Sterling Cooper. During the Mad Men ...

Rock On Reena!

BY intern Amber in General |

Okay so I have to tell you about a wonderful friend of mine, Reena Shah . I am always so inspired by this powerful artist with a knockout smile and spirit. I don't know if Reena knows this, but she is breaking boundaries. Minority actresses the world over have a hard time being embraced by the Anglo-obsessed film and entertainment industry, but Reena has managed to be a successful actress/singer/dancer all while embracing her Indian-American roots. You can see her ... Read More
We've been digging the new album Arrow from Clare and the Reasons here in the office so when I found out they were playing at the Music Hall of Williamsburg last night, I dragged my dreamy-chamber-pop-loving ass out in the rain to see them. Let me tell you, it was worth the wet socks.    Clare's delicate voice is crazy gorgeous and hearing it live just drives that point home. And as if her sweet and soaring singing wasn't talent enough, homegirl ... Read More

This Woman Rocks

BY Web Intern in General |

In a time where the economy is in the dump and horrendous news stories keep popping up (15 year old gang rape outside school?!), there is a woman who is perking people up with her never-ending determination. Lan Yin Tsai, 84, bikes 150 miles (in a straight shot) for multiple sclerosis research every year. Donning a dress and high heels, which is her normal biking outfit, Tsai is a staple at the annual City to Shore ride in New Jersey and is a symbol of hope ... Read More
