I've always considered terribly melodramatic poetry to be an inescapable rite of passage for teenagers. All that angst has to go somewhere, you know, and more often than not it ends up scrawled in a black velvet notebook from Waldenbooks, peppered with a few Morrissey quotes to round things out. Maybe I'm generalizing, but come on--we've all been there, right? So I'm completely floored by 16-year-old Jillian Clark's totally kick-ass poetry. I stumbled across ... Read More

Living in America

BY Laurie in General |

Are you registered to vote in this next, very important election? I'm always surprised by how many young people are not, or mean to and don't get around to registering in time. And since every state has different regulations and cut off dates for registration, its not always easy to do. Guess what? Your government likes it that way! So, please, make sure you are registered, because the cut off dates are really soon, and you don't want to be left out. You can ... Read More

Goldfrapp

BY Laurie in General |

This past Friday the British duo Goldfrapp, Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, played to a packed house at NYC's Radio City Music Hall. A perfect Art Deco setting for them. Backed by a five piece band which included harp and key-tars, Alison and Will took their adoring fans on a musical journey with selections from their four albums. Concentrating on the their latest gem, Seventh Tree, Goldfrapp seduced the crowd with songs like 'A & E', 'Caravan Girl' ... Read More

I love Pamela Anderson

BY Callie in General |

I have always thought we should have her in BUST, but I don't think the other ladies in the office agree with me. I know what your going to say, 'but the tits and the bathing suits and she is just a sex symbol...blah blah blah'. But I never frowned at Dolly for the work she has had done, mainly because of the way she addresses it, with full on honesty. I also have never been one to hate on someone because they want to wear stripper shoes and pose nude. Her work ... Read More

I'm so beyond excited for this month's release of Ghost World: the Special Edition, I can barely keep it together. According to Fantagraphics Books, this edition features not only the original comic and screenplay, but 200 pages of yummy extras: new GW strips and an introduction by Daniel Clowes, tons of artwork, notes and unused concepts, even movie posters and foreign edition covers. Plus, Clowes annotated the entire thing, which makes the nerd in me just ... Read More

i'm so over you.

BY Tara in General |

i have to say...my Kenley Collins girl crush has totally fizzled and died. WTF? she totally cracked! i finally caught up on the last episode of Proj Runway last night and my stomach literally turned. First off, the 'garment' she made was truly heinous. She brushed off my boy Tim when he tried to warn her it was terrible and went on and on about how AWESOME she thought she was. GAG. Then she had the balls to snap at Heidi at the aquarium party and then again after ... Read More
The reviews are in, critics HATE 'The Women,' and I wholeheartedly agree with them. I wanted to like it. I was excited to see it. But unfortunately, what is currently being peddled to us as the film we simply MUST see with all of our girlfriends in tow, is a steaming pile of shit. Not an honest moment or genuine exchange as far as the eye can see. There aren't even any good clothes or dreamy locales to take viewers minds off the impossible script. The film is a ... Read More
I love bacon, it is in my top two favorite foods, coming up second to steak and cheese sandwiches. Put bacon on a steak and cheese and I am going to try to hump your leg. Needless to say, I could not have been more excited to go to a bacon and beer tasting at Jimmy's no. 43. I went to a craft beer tasting for women there awhile ago and L-O-V-E-D it. Read on bacon heads for my top picks andbacon tips. Oh and the pic to the left is a bacon scarf ! Mama wants!The host ... Read More

Attention Target Shoppers!

BY Laurie in General |

If you are like me, you hear about or see ads for the special designer collections that Target puts out, but often when you actually get to a Target, all the good stuff is gone! Well, if you happen to be in NYC this weekend, check out one of the 4 Bullseye Bodega Pop Up stores that Target has sprinkled around town, and get ready to spend a few bones on some cheap yet stylish stuff. Gail and I attended the opening party last night, and there were sweet Sigmo ... Read More
