Make Tomorrow Epic.

BY Callie in General

I was out of commiss last weekend with the flu and vertigo, the flu is on its way out but no telling about the vertigo. It seems like it is getting better, or maybe I am just getting used to it. Either way, I will just die if I have to lay around the house for another weekend, even if it is in the snuggie. After the Sex In America symposium I am hoping to make it to the Chicken Hut for what is sure to be an insane parrrrrrty! My roommate/spiritual guide ... Read More
I'll admit: I don't really get modern art. And I especially don't get Heide Hatry's art. Hatry is an artist who sculpts using clay and raw meat. In one series, Meat after Meat Joy (Meat Joy was a 1964 performance piece and I really don't get the art of performance art), Hatry created an American flag out of meat, complete with maggots. Okay, fine, it lacks subtlety, but let's assume she was going for a blunt and shocking political statement. Heads and Tales , her ... Read More
It's been feeling a bit like a TB ward over at BUST HQ lately, what with my never-ending cough, Callie's horrible ear infection, and assorted other bugs and germies making their way 'round the office. But last night I came across this video for how to make ginger tea, and I'm gonna make it as soon as I get home tonite. Plus, how adorable is this video? Su-Mei Yu is so warm and motherly, just watching her make ginger tea makes me feel comforted already! Want ... Read More

Half-Birthday Knits

BY Lisa in General

    We thought the embroidered grocery bag craft in our Feb/Mar issue (above left) was totally genius. Well it just so happens that Jennifer Reichert, the bag's designer, has many more tricks up her sleeve. My favorites are the custom knit portrait totes she makes (like the one above). Amazing! And if you love that grocery bag but just can't find the time to make it, you can get one right from the creator herself, just check out her Web site, ... Read More
The folks over at the UK gossip site Popbitch have a secret weapon in their fight for Oscar prediction supremacy this year. He's a 'psychic' cat named Wilbur and according to his posse, you'd have to be a fool to bet against him: 'Now two years old, Wilbur had a difficult start to life. He was abandoned as a kitten with his sister under a hedge in a park. When rescued, he hid under the sofa for months. When he finally ventured out from under the sofa, we were ... Read More

Courtesy of Warner Bros. Variety is reporting that Twentieth Century Fox is pushing back the release date of the Sandra Bullock flick All About Steve so it wouldn't go up against Warner Bros.' super-hyped comic book movie Watchmen. Of course, things get complicated when you add in the legal tug of war between Twentieth Century Fox and Warner Bros. over Watchmen rights, which resulted in Fox now 'having a stake' in Watchmen and essentially competing against ...
