In a response to the kerfufflle set up by the new double X site where one writer slams some other feminist writers, my favorite Jezebel blogger, (and former BUST staffer) Tracie 'Slut Machine' Egan posted this hilarious Judge Judy comic  that made me crack up. JJ grills some famous feminists (and exposes their drinking habits), takes no crap, and points out that feminists don't all have to agree. Wouldn't a real life throwdown between Judge Judy and Courtney ... Read More

Ruffeo Hearts +Mo Rocca!

BY Laurie in Crafty

Check out this clip that includes two of my favorite things, rad hand made stuff and Mr. MO ROCCA! Mo had to learn how to make his own hoodie for this feature on Etsy and the handmade explosion so he went to the studio of the adorable Ruffeo Hearts lil Snotty proprietor Mackswell who showed him the ropes. Come meet Mackswell and Sarah at their booth next Sunday at the BUST Spring Fling Craftacular in Brooklyn May 17th, 12-7pm. To view all the vendors, click ... Read More

BY Laurie in General

Deradoorian Mind Raft Lovepump United While ostensibly a record made 'for you to do drugs to, or something,' Mind Raft, the debut EP from Dirty Projectors singer/bassist Angel Deradoorian, comes across just as easily as a study in deliberate deconstruction. Deradoorian, who uses only her surname as her solo moniker, diffuses the occasional New Age tang by singing with a slightly more mannered, downward-spiraling inflection here than we're used to, creating a ...

Hipster Grifter, Busted

BY Laurie in General

So apparently the Hipster Grifter aka Kari Ferrell turned herself in to the cops in Philly on Sunday night. I know a lot of people are fascinated with this girl, but really, what is the big deal? She's a cute Asian girl that happens to also be a really good liar. I do like that freewiliamsburg.com made a foldable doll, and promises to make a 'new Williamsburg foldable celebrity' each month. Who will be next? via gawker ... Read More

When your gays call, you better pick up. Or in this case, when they email. My good friend Craig (the fabulous DJ Smithmix who DJed our 15 year anniversary party last August) sent me some goodies today, one of which was a link to a very cool blog by NY drag superstars Brandy Wine and Brenda A. Go Go. I just about lost it on this fake Karma Chameleon phone, sanctioned by Boy George himself. Hilarious. It seems like it may have actually been a real phone back in ... Read More
It's not that often that I get THIS excited about a musician, but I am loco for this girl Karin Dreijer Andersson, one half of the Swedish brother/sister duo The Knife. Her solo record, Fever Ray (Mute) is a beautiful, haunting collection of songs that I am digging in a major way. (Look for more of this amazing artist in ... Read More
