I'm so beyond excited for this month's release of Ghost World: the Special Edition, I can barely keep it together. According to Fantagraphics Books, this edition features not only the original comic and screenplay, but 200 pages of yummy extras: new GW strips and an introduction by Daniel Clowes, tons of artwork, notes and unused concepts, even movie posters and foreign edition covers. Plus, Clowes annotated the entire thing, which makes the nerd in me just giggle with glee. Read More
Oh, the ladies of the FLDS. Call them what you will, but it's sort of difficult to ignore their place as the style icons of summer '08. Fashion savvy girls and guys spent the majority of that news cycle all but creaming over the perfectly coiffed hair and constructed sleeves, and I thought for sure Marc Jacobs would be the first to send some warped (and probably awesome) version of the image down a runway. Turns out he's been beaten to the punch...by the FLDS ladies themselves. Read More

i'm so over you.

BY Tara in General

i have to say...my Kenley Collins girl crush has totally fizzled and died. WTF? she totally cracked! i finally caught up on the last episode of Proj Runway last night and my stomach literally turned. First off, the 'garment' she made was truly heinous. She brushed off my boy Tim when he tried to warn her it was terrible and went on and on about how AWESOME she thought she was. GAG. Then she had the balls to snap at Heidi at the aquarium party and then again after the runway show. The overconfidence is driving me batty. Read More
The reviews are in, critics HATE 'The Women,' and I wholeheartedly agree with them. I wanted to like it. I was excited to see it. But unfortunately, what is currently being peddled to us as the film we simply MUST see with all of our girlfriends in tow, is a steaming pile of shit. Not an honest moment or genuine exchange as far as the eye can see. There aren't even any good clothes or dreamy locales to take viewers minds off the impossible script. The film is a nightmare, plain and simple. Read More
I love bacon, it is in my top two favorite foods, coming up second to steak and cheese sandwiches. Put bacon on a steak and cheese and I am going to try to hump your leg. Needless to say, I could not have been more excited to go to a bacon and beer tasting at Jimmy's no. 43. I went to a craft beer tasting for women there awhile ago and L-O-V-E-D it. Read on bacon heads for my top picks andbacon tips. Oh and the pic to the left is a bacon scarf ! Mama wants!The host this time was Josh Ozersky, a James Beard Award winning food writer who sometimes uses the nom de plume 'Mr. Cutlets'. Read More

Attention Target Shoppers!

BY Laurie in General

If you are like me, you hear about or see ads for the special designer collections that Target puts out, but often when you actually get to a Target, all the good stuff is gone! Well, if you happen to be in NYC this weekend, check out one of the 4 Bullseye Bodega Pop Up stores that Target has sprinkled around town, and get ready to spend a few bones on some cheap yet stylish stuff.

Mad about Mad Men!

BY Tara in General

If any of you have been reading this bloghole for long enough, you know that 99.9% of my posts are about (my boyfriend) TV. And while the television preferences of BUST staffers differ (ie. Callie gravitates towards reality shows like Miss Rap Supreme and So you think you can dance? while Debbie and Laurie love 30-rock), MY addiction and uncontrollable love affair with television, while it be shitty, sub-par, teen drama or not, has moved my fellow co-workers to rightfully dub me TaraTV.

I have a confession to make: I have a strange affection for Governor Sarah Pailn. I mean, I find her really compelling and charasmatic. And that's difficult, because I really hate her politics. If you want to feel what I'm feeling, just imagine for a moment that Palin was on our side. Imagine that she was pro-choice, pro-environment, and all the rest of it. Read More
