You won't see better roller derby anywhere else!

I recently went to see the documentary Helvetica, yes it's about a font, and no, it's not that boring. Shot beautifully, mostly of signs from around the world, the ubiquitous font shows up in just about every corner of the globe. Here we have a bunch of famous designer dudes talking about the history and thier love (and sometimes hatred) of the omnipresent letters. Just like in the design world, we barely see any women here, except two, the spunky and talented ... Read More

Art Girl Crush

BY Lisa in General |

 I love food. And I love San Francisco (my former home). So when I saw artist Liz Hickok’s “San Francisco in Jell-O” series I totally fell in love. The series includes photos and videos of San Francisco landscapes that she’s cast in Jell-O. In Jell-O!! First she makes scale models of landscapes like the row of Painted Ladies (aka The Full House houses) or the Transamerica building out of balsa wood and foam. She uses these to make molds ...

Hot Wheels

I want a pink car, dammit!Last year, Nisssa painted one of their compact model cars pink, then toured it around the UK as part of a breast cancer fundraising event. NOt surprisingly, folks begged Nissan to produce the car in pink for reals -- and they did. The 100 units sold out quickly, so they came back with another 150. STateside we never even had a chance at this pink panther, since this cutie car, the Nissan Micra, isnt' even for sale here. It's not the first ... Read More

Real Talk

Both The Duke Spirit and Henry Rollins have been in BUST before and our heart for them will go on. I got to hang with these guys last time they were in the states on tour and they were an absolute pleasure. I kind of got myself a little crush on Luke. He is the one in the black peacoat. Pretty hot, huh.  If you haven’t heard their guest song “Mayday” on UNKLE’S debut album War Stories you are totally missing out. Check out the live ... Read More

All the Labies of the World

BY debbie in General |

We know we're getting all creepy trekkie-obsessed with the dudes from Flight of the Conchords, but we can't stop ourselves. In last week's episode, they sang a love song to all the ladies of the world (from Namibian to amphibian; erudite to hermaphrodite). Now it looks like the ladies are singing back!First up, the soulful "Jemaine", from a future Mrs. Clement:  Next, "Bret. will you be my Ukelele lover?" from a Mrs. McKenzie wannabe: So ... Read More

Big Whoop!

BY Callie in General |

I have never really been into The View even though my BFFE can’t get enough of it. I just thought it was a 30 plus club thing for some reason. It looks like my relationship with the view is about to change. I have always loved Whoopi! I mean Jumpin’ Jack Flash, come on. Looks like I may have to start keeping up with the ladies now. While poking around for some footage of Whoopi’s guest appearances on the view (you can catch some clips here) I ... Read More
