Model Fight Club

BY Laurie in Artsy |

Everything's better when models do it, right? The latest in late night new York entertainment happenings are illegal fighting matches where male models duke it out for those "in the know" paying patrons. While some of the pretty boys are doing this for fun (getting punched in the face is apparently fun!) one of the exceptions is Charlie, a lanky 20 year old model who is actually training to enter the Golden Gloves. BUST contributor, Michelle Groskopf is making a ... Read More
Ah, the age old dilemma. You meet a cool dude, you want to be friends, but he just wants to,  you know, stick it in you! How Annoying!! Check out the new video by the Those Darlins, the twangy and trashy garage-punk gals from Tennessee that illustrates this problem in a delightfully un-delicate way. "Be Your Bro" is from their soon to be released album, Screws Get Loose (Oh Wow Dang- out on April 26).   You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view ... Read More
Oh man, I know this is old, but I needed to post this genius sketch by Kristen Schaal and John Stewart from last week. Kristen stops by the Daily Show to school Stewart on the "rainbow of rape's" and explains how the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act should cut funding for abortions unless they are a result of "forcible" rape. While I laughed out loud, it is sad to know that many people in this country would agree with her outrageous claims of "rapish" rape not ... Read More
As the violence escalates in the Egyptian revolution, it's no surprise that one of the videos posted on Facebook on January 18th by this young woman, Asmaa Mahfouz went viral and apparently inspired thousands to go down to Tahrir square on the 25th to protest. It's an incredibly brave and inspiring call to action by a young person who wants to make their country a better place. (Watch the video below) Not much is known about Asmaa, it's been reported that she is ... Read More
Today the White Stripes made the announcement on their site that they are calling it quits, something about setting the music free, no hard feelings etc. I really loved the White Stripes, some of the best concerts that I attended in this decade were played by them, but I'm not sad really. I've got the records and at least they won't get into any embarrassing Mick Jagger territory.  I will, however, miss Meg's drumming. This reminded me of a photo shoot and ... Read More
"You guys ready to get all fuckin' mellow?"   This is how Iron and Wine (aka Sam Beam) opened his set to a sold-out crowd at Radio City Music Hall Saturday night. Of course, we all answered by going batshit crazy. I&W's music has this magical way of whisking you off to a very quiet place, a non-New York City place—with a campfire and hobo pies.   And when the dude with the velvet voice grabbed his guitar and began to play 'He Lays in ...

Director, performance artist, writer, and actress Miranda July is the indie film world’s favorite female face. Best known for her 2005 debut feature, Me and You and Everyone We Know, and her follow-up collection of short stories, No One Belongs Here More Than You, she has been near and dear to us here at BUST since before she graced our cover in 2007. So when I found out she was debuting her second feature film, The Future, at Sundance, I was excited to go ... Read More

Review of The Woods

BY Laurie in Artsy |

 The Woods, which premiered this week at Sundance, is a film about a band of revolutionaries living off the grid and Wi-ing away their time on a big screen TV plugged into a tree.  They stuff their faces with products you would find in a Super Wal-Mart snack isle, like hot pockets, cheez-its and boxed juice concentrate.  Its a little like a contemporary Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, with all the technicolor flag defacing anti establishment ...

Well, I was so busy running around to screenings that I did not have time to post every day like planned, so here are my 3 days squished into one report. Sundance is a great festival, it's filled with people passionate about telling stories, and I met so many smart and creative folks, it really was worth driving in a blizzard and white knuckling it down a mountain to be here (more on that later! Saturday started off with an invite to see the premiere of a ... Read More

Day 1 at Sundance

BY Laurie in Artsy |

I arrived at Sundance, with photographer pal Bek Andersen, (in the beautiful park City UT) to a gorgeous Friday morning, and started our Sundance experience- or what Callie likes to call "grown up spring break!"So far it's been a adventure filled with movies, parties, long lines (no not those kind), altitude headaches, hot tubs, and an occasion star spotting. After picking up our badges, I went straight to wait in line to see my first movie of the day Kaboom, ... Read More
