Dispatches From Sundance

BY Laurie in Movies |

We sent our favorite photographer (and Laurie’s main squeeze) Michael Lavine to The Sundance Film Festival to check out the festival and report back to us on what’s good this year. _____________________________________________ While deeply entrenched in the insanity known as Sundance, I spend most of my time shuttling from theater to theater, waiting in line, watching movies and then talking to strangers about said movies while waiting in another line ...

Ok, I’m gonna duck and cover here, and say I don’t hate Lana Del Rey. Maybe I don’t care enough to have such strong feelings, but I’m truly perplexed by the deep hatred people have for her. Even here in the BUST office, Team Lana only comprises about 30 percent of the staff. You’d think she’d murdered kittens while wearing an NRA tube top. Look, she’s no Adele in the singing department, and yes, I object to a 24-year-old ... Read More
Oh man, I miss the Cramps! Thanks to an intrepid tweeter over at @thingsfromhere, I was reminded that way back in 2004 we ran a little piece in BUST where we asked the Cramps' Lux Interior and Poison Ivy to make us a Christmas Mix tape. They called it Black Christmas, natch. It's full of early Rock n Roll gems like Christmas in jail, by the Youngsters, and Don't believe in Christmas by the Sonics. Here is a link to it, with the MP3s - Enjoy! Sadly we lost Lux a ... Read More
As IF you needed a reason to go downtown tomorrow and celebrate the amazing movement that is waking up America.  Lou Reed & Patti Smith are scheduled to play on Saturday, December 17th – the three month anniversary of Occupy Wall St., the birthday of Bradley Manning, and the 1 year anniversary of the self-immolation of Mohamed Bouazizi – the act that sparked the Arab Spring. Beloved New York band, Dean and Britta will be hitting the stage ... Read More
Our beloved Patsy and Edina are back with a new episode of Absolutely Fabulous to air on BBC America on January 8th! We've been hearing of the reunion for quite some time and are THRILLED  with the news. Since originally airing 20 years ago (really? has it been that long?) Ab Fab, the brilliant British sitcom created by Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French, has yet to have  been knocked off its pedestal of comedic genius. Not since maybe Lucy and Ethel were ... Read More
Last night I got to go to a concert at Irving Plaza to see some of my favorite people perform some of my favorite songs. It was called the Starkid SPACE Tour, and yes it sounds stupid, but they are really the funniest, most talented group of people ever. I waited in line with my friends (fellow 8th graders) for 5 hours, and when we finally got in it was extremely cramped but it was still exciting just to be there.  The crowd was made up of 99% girls, probably ...

I never get tired of John Roberts! His fans know him from his Mom character on Youtube (the "star" of 2006's amazing "Look at the tree!" video), as well as the obnoxious teen Debra (from the "Jackie and Debra" video), and the voice of delightfully abrasive Linda Belcher on Bob's Burgers. This guy is so good, if he was on Saturday Night Live, I'd go back to watching it. Here's his latest creation, "Bald with a Blue Tooth." Prepare to be seduced.Bald With A ... Read More

Book Tour: West Coast Diary

BY Laurie in Crafty |

Both Debbie and I had a great time on our mini - west coast book tour for The BUST D.I.Y. Guide to Life, it’s always a pleasure to meet BUST readers on the road! Here are a few highlights from the trip. 1st stop Seattle Debbie took the train from NY, and I flew in to Seattle and got to see some old friends, including Dave, Annabel, Heather, Emily, Mark, Steve, Kelly and (fab advertiser) Sandy Glaze of Sin In Linen. I was psyched to get a tour of the fabulous ... Read More
I'm loving the new single entitled Madeline by Lissy Trullie. While I'll admit I was skeptical of her first release back in 2009 (another former model makes the scene?) She has completely won me over, especially here with her deep, Nico-ish inflections and the "Sunday Morning" guitar and sombre tambourine taps. Looking forward to hearing her new album, produced by John Hill (Santigold, M.I.A., Shakira) and David Sitek (TV On the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Liars) out ... Read More
The BUST book tour is officially kicking off this weekend and we're very excited to be heading out to Bushwick on Sunday afternoon to visit Mike Edison and Judy McGuire and to talk about our new book on The Mike and Judy show.We'll be streaming live at 2pm on this crazy thing they call the internet radio. Tune in for some real talk. http://www.heritageradionetwork.com/programs/65-The-Mike-Judy-Show Rumor has it that we'll be rewarded with beer and pizza (from ... Read More
