Girl Crush

BY Lisa in General |

I just can't get enough of Lavender Diamond and the superawesome, head-in-the-clouds, peace-on-the-brain mastermind behind their sweet, folky melodies: Becky Stark. Her voice soars and their album, Imagine Our Love, is a perfect summer soundtrack. Watch her skate the day away in this almost-too-precious video for their song "Open Your Heart." I dare you not to dance! ... Read More

Everyone's a Critic

I love the fact that in NYC, you don't have to wonder what the general consensus is surrounding any new film. Just keep an eye on the glut of street advertising, and inevitably the writing will be on the ... Read More

Totally Stitchy

We here at BUST are totally in love with MAKE Workshop and the fabulously crafty Diana Rupp who runs it. For those of you in the NY area (or ambitious visitors!), MAKE has a great list of classes including sewing, knitting, letterpress printing, and soapmaking just to name a few. Yesterday, I tried my hand at embroidery during their one-night workshop, a skill i've been meaning to learn for years. Using handouts from her all-time favorite embroidery book Diana ... Read More

Appliance Porn

I long ago abandoned any hope of ever living somewhere that would offer me the unparalleled luxury of my own personal washer/dryer, but that fact didn't keep me from stopping in my tracks when I saw these two beauties being delivered to some lucky lady on 13th St. between 5th and 6th. Upon further inspection, I learned that they are one of the new "Wild Cherry Red" washer/dryer sets from LG, and this pic doesn't even do them justice. Even from across the ... Read More

The  segment was called, Tough Girls, Tough Women, and Debbie was asked to give her take on the role of women in music. If you missed it, you can find out what she had to say by listening ...

Baby Love

OMG!!! Check out my BFF Johanna's son Emlyn! Her friend from Altdotlife (a huge online community of rad indie moms) just made him this onesie so Emlyn can adorably pay tribute to his mama's fave band! If there were such thing as death-by-cuteness I would now be most tragically slain. To check out more of this talented lady's unique creations, visit her online store here! ... Read More

Holy Hottie Alert!

BY Tara in General |

so remember a while back when i talked about filling that dirty little hole that the OC left in my heart when it got cancelled? consider it filled. wading in a pool of my own sweat last night I turned on the tv and happened to stumble upon the series premiere of Greek on ABC Family. never a skeptic, i gave it a whirl, and was devoured by not only the ridiculous story-lines that had me reminiscing about my college days but most importantly drooling (yes, additional ...

2 awesome nudes

Ya gotta love NME's cheeky art department, and boy do I ever. After Beth Ditto posed nude for the cover last month, Art Bruts Eddie Argos posed for an inside feature in his birthday suit too. Who's next? Amy Winehouse? Just kidding, that would be scary. In a related note, check out the amazing Brit music magazine Plan B. they've got loads of cool and often girlcentric articles, and were one of the first to put Miss D. on their cover. The new issue sports a Bjork ... Read More
