Weekend fun

BY Sarah J. in General |

So it’s Friday, and I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m ready for the weekend. It’s summer, and that means outdoor fun—which always comes with a bit of boy-watching.Well, a couple of ladies I know from Philly have taken boy-watching to the next level. They’ve created shmittenkitten.com, a sort of field guide to the men of Philadelphia, complete with hand-drawn illustrations guaranteed to ... Read More
The career of plus-sized supermodel Velvet d'Amour has been going strong since we first featured her a year ago in in the Aug/Sept '07 Fashion issue of BUST. She became a dancer on the European club circuit, was featured in a music video for the Parisian boy band Scarlet Queens, she's working on a book, and the film in which she starred, Avida, just came out on video in the U.S. In the wake of all these projects has come more and more publicity, of course, and in ...

Robot love

BY Sarah J. in General |

(photo from Electronic House) Robots are cool, right? I mean, I adore Bjork's video for “All Is Full Of Love” (and if you haven't seen it...), and I just finished reading 24Seven, an Eisner-award nominated comic anthology all about robots in NYC.

Booty Call

BY Team Intern in General |

  Nothing cramps your stilo more than a sad, floppy pair of calf-high boots. Propping them up against a wall or another boot rarely works, and wish as you might that folding the tops over won’t crease the fabric… well. Let’s just say it’s recently become kind of a sore spot. (RIP, my beautiful suede knee-highs, RIP).    Luckily, these cutie Booty Shapers have swooped in to save my soles. The inflatable supports slip ... Read More

It's official

BY Lisa in General |

   I lived in San Francisco back in 2004 when mayor Gavin Newsom decided same-sex couples should be able to marry and I saw the crowd of ecstatic partners lined up outside of City Hall to take advantage of the opportunity. So, I can only imagine what the scene is like all over California today. In addition to gay marriage getting two thumbs up, SF-based singer/songwriter Larkin Gayl’s new album came out today, and to celebrate both she’s ... Read More
Sometimes, it's good to return to your roots.I spent an enlightening day perusing the Barnard College Zine Library, curated by research librarian, activist and zinester Jenna Freedman (with the help of awesome zine intern Melissa). I spent hours perusing the collection of "personal and political publications on activism, anarchism, body image, third wave feminism, gender, parenting, queer community, riot grrrl, sexual assault, and other topics," reading ...

My BFF is having a baby and I am in charge of the baby shower. Well the New York one, her mom is throwing a traditional shower for the fam and close friends. Sunday was the day we had the baby shower planning party/clothing swap (because I know dick about baby showers and wanted to come up with less vomit inducing games and ummm swap some clothes). The cover story of the Daily News that day was "Baby Gangstas"! We'd already been thinking the colors focus ... Read More
