On any given night, there are about a million and one things to do in NYC. Usually the pressure to choose gets to be too much and you find yourself bunkered down at someone's apartment, playing competitive Rock Band and drinking a $3 beer from the corner store. But other nights present a clear path to a well-rounded event like the one that took place at Littlefield in Brooklyn on Saturday. The BUST-sponsored event was part of the second leg of Jessica Hopper's ... Read More

Archie has Chosen!

BY Team Intern in General |

After 67 years, the original fictional love triangle has finally been resolved (or has it?). Archie, the goony, redheaded protagonist of the beloved Archie comic series , proposed to Veronica, the swanky, black-haired bad girl he's been chasing after for . . . well, nearly a century. Though Veronica certainly has her fans, the assumption was that Archie would ultimately choose Betty, the perky, girl-next-door blond. The scenario works kind of like Dawson's Creek ... Read More

Spare the Rod

BY Team Intern in General |

According to the AP , a woman in Malaysia is sentenced to be caned after pleading guilty to drinking a beer. Baffled? Same here. Here's some background: Apparently, Malaysia has a two-pronged approach to governing its citizens. Muslims in the country follow with Islamic law and court systems, while non-Muslims are subject to civil law. And while both systems recognize caning as a valid sentence, only the Islamic law condemns drinking. So when 32 year old, ... Read More
Madonna turned 51 yesterday! Yes, despite all of her irreverence, her glamour, and her yogalates, it seems Madonna does actually age. Certainly Madonna's brand of 51 is a little different than the run of the mill; after being serenaded by Polish concert-goers, Radar says Madge retreated to the Italian Riviera with her model man-cessory, Jesus Luz. But, fear not! Just like us normals, she did go out for cake (!!!), and her friends are planning a nice party for her ... Read More

FYF Sends an SOS!

BY Team Intern in General |

Plucky 18 year old Sean Carlson started the independent and aptly-named F Yeah Fest in 2004, alongside his buddy Keith Morris (yes, that Keith Morris, of Black Flag and the Circle Jerks). Since then, the festival has grown out of it's Echo Park home to a new locale in the LA Historic State Park, and the FYF crowd holds even more events all year. And, needless to say, the festivals draw a killer crowd of performers including Ladyhawke, Sarah Silverman, No Age, ... Read More
America's Next Top Model starts its lucky 13th season (or 'cycle' in CWspeak) next month, ushering in a new league of young women vying for that kind of fleeting semi-famehood only Tyra Banks can bestow. This time 'round, Tyra's throwing us a real curveball; none of the contestants pass the 6 foot mark, making these girls the shortest class paraded past the show's fabulous judges (the teeniest is only 5'3''). Unfortunately, Tyra must have gotten so caught up with ... Read More
Move over, Olsens! Peace out, Paris! Want a real fashion role maiden? Meet Iris Apfel, queen bee of quirky, cool, original fashion. Back in the 1940s, when skirts and sweater sets were the mode, Apfel hit the streets in men's denim jeans. Men's denim jeans, hoop earrings, and, ah yes, a turban. And so, an icon was born. Since her youth, Apfel's combination of glamor and flamboyance have influenced the fashion world in a big way. Now, Rare Bird of Fashion: The ... Read More

More than 60,000 hair pros (stylists, cosmetologists, distributors, and exhibitors), celebrities (Chris Rock, Al Sharpton, and Nia Long are all confirmed to appear), entertainers (JJ and the Young Giants of Comedy are part of the program), and beauty fanatics will rock Hotlanta from the ...

Lucinda Williams is my homegirl, my kindred spirit, my sister from another mister. Her sad, sweet, rollicking songs have been on replay in my itunes for as long as I realized I adored country music, naysayers be damned. I am so unbearably excited for her 30th anniversary tour, in which she'll be performing sets from across different periods of her career to celebrate 30 years as a recording ... Read More
