At my place it's important to play Christmas music at all times to remind me to get in that holiday spirit! This year, The Raveonettes have dropped a dreamy Xmas ditty--appropriately titled "The Christmas Song"--to sum up everyone's mood about the "most wonderful time of the year." All I need now is a warm blanket and some hot chocolate...

Ah, Christmas in New York: it’s pretty much everything that Home Alone 2 made it out to be (with the exception of like, the entire plot) but better. The tree at Rockefeller Center, the chestnuts roasting on open-ish fires, John Waters putting the “X” in X-mas at B.B. King's, and Ronnie Spector’s annual Christmas Party. For over 20 years, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and living legend has hosted a New York City Christmas ... Read More
I have a confession to make: I'm wet for John Waters. Of course, I'm not the only BUSTy broad who loves the professional provacateur; Kat Dennings sings his praises in our Dec./Jan. issue, and I'm told that boss lady Laurie hugs a John Waters pillow at night. And as the weather outside gets frightful, you can be sure that the kitsch-obsessed Santa-for-perverts will warm our hearts and loins by delivering something delightful. Waters has famously curated a ... Read More
Even though it's unseasonable warm in some areas, I can't help but love this fall/winter time of year and the fact that it's getting closer and closer to the holiday season. While the holidays are close though, the October 25th release of the She & Him holiday album,"A Very She & Him Christmas" is even closer! I'm not exactly decking the halls just yet, but I'm definitely excited for musical holiday goodness to come. Christmas songs have a ... Read More

Christmas is Emily Beanblossom, Dave Halegua, Jake Jones, and Patrick Michael-Scott Walsh. They live in Olympia, Washington and both look and sound like they could beat the shit out of you. I like that in a band.
On March 15th they're releasing their first full-length self-titled album on Highfives and Handshakes/CMRTYZ and I'm obsessed with it. I've been telling people that it sounds like what Sleigh Bells SHOULD have sounded like (Beanblossom ... Read More

Bust’s favorite Drag King, Murray Hill -"the hardest working middle-aged man in show business"- will be delighting us yet again this winter with his legendary Yuletide tradition: A Murray Little Christmas. This year Murray and his fabulous friends will be repping it old school, literally, while transporting the audience back to his childhood high school PS 0 (“zero”) to perform a holiday school recital. The chosen theme this year, as a celebration ... Read More
A Holiday Message to a loved one on the Jersey Shore.Believe this...This is an actual un-touched photo I shot while sitting in my car at the Welsh Farms convenience store in Neptune, NJ, enroute to my grandparents for Christmas Day. I'm not even sure how the universe aligned so perfectly to capture this. I hope you have a good laugh at this true story captured on celluloid. Cheers!What you are seeing, view-by-view:-On the front ... Read More

I'm sure it was created with the best intentions. I'm willing to give CBS the benefit of the doubt on that. But honestly, their new public service announcements suggesting that husbands give their wives the gift of a pap smear this holiday season are really.....ridiculous.
Never mind the fact that if this is really what I were to receive from the man in my life as my Hanukkah gift I would be sorely disappointed, and how is my guy supposed to ... Read More
