Josh Rachford

BY Web Intern in General

                                       NYC Comedian extraordinaire Josh Rachford, the courageous leader of FUTURO (ya know, the improv group from the future) leaves the lovely Eastern coast for the sunny-sickness of Los Angeles. The only good thing that comes of such ... Read More
Do you know how to be post-racial? If not, let Margaret Cho teach you! The funny lady will be appearing this Saturday night at the Bowery Poetry Club in NYC for a special called 'How to Be Post-Racial.' Elon James White, creator and star of This Week in Blackness, will host the event, and several other comedians (including Lizz Winstead, co-creator of The Daily Show) will be around to give their two cents on the subject. And don't worry -- if you're not in New ... Read More

Be There!

In case you've forgotten, Gallery Hanahou in NYC (611 Broadway Suite 730) is showcasing Before and After, an exhibit for Ossu! Shugeibu. And hey, it's a BUST sponsored event so that's extra cool. The name Ossu! Shugeibu translates to Yo! Crafting Club and founder Shichi Ishizawa will be around tonight from 7-9 pm for a little surprise participatory event action. If you can't swing it tonight, on the 17th from 1-4 pm there will be a make-your-own-robot-pet ... Read More

Liz Lemon loves BUST

BY Laurie in General

We know that Liz Lemon is a BUST girl, as is our hero Tina Fey, but we got proof this week when one of our eagle eyed designers caught this in one of last 30 Rock season's episodes. Our Amy Poehler cover hanging in Liz's office! Who knows how long it's been there? I wonder if she'll update this season when our 2nd Amy cover comes out (Dec/Jan issue-it'll be a good one!). Keep tuned, and if you see something, say something. Oh, and commercial plug: if you ... Read More

EAGLE AND TALON

BY Web Intern in General

Thracian, the new album from Eagle and Talon, is here! It was worth the wait. Check it now on itunes, or at your local record store on the October 23rd. My favorite L.A. lady rockers will play at Public Assembly in Brooklyn on the 21st. I can't wait to dance like the angry teenager I am ... Read More
Now in it's 9th year, the Bicycle Film Festival is out to prove that peddle pushing isn't just a passing trend. Much like the number of two-wheelers seen on the street, it's becoming unstoppable. You don't have to be a hardcore biker babe to enjoy the show, either: those of us who prefer to take a joyride on our cruisers can get in tandem with cycle-centric cinema. Currently in Paris, the wheels-on-reels tour will make stops in Auckland, Denver, Sydney, Tokyo, ... Read More
It's a well-documented fact that Etsy is awesome -- you can buy vintage belt buckles, handmade jewelry, and pretty much anything you can think of, really, all without leaving the comfort of wherever you prefer to Internet shop. But 'pretty much anything you can think of' also includes 'things you would never imagine someone was trying to sell.' Thanks to the site Regretsy, you can now see all of these products in their crazy glory. Looking for a Frida Kahlo uterus ... Read More
  Ever since I caught sight of Keep's kicks, I've been borderline obsessed with boat shoes.  My tootsies just don't feel right without them (seriously, I have 6 pairs, it's kind of sad).  They're like Vans slip-ons, except way cuter.  Now Keep is satisfying my snack attack with pretzel-patterned sneakers!  Don't they look yummy? Never heard of Keep?  The line was started by designers Una Kim and Margot Jacobs in 2006.  The ... Read More
If there was a book that isn't Sandman more deserving of oversized, supersaturated Absolute edition, Promethea is it. It's a sometimes-skipping, sometimes-running, sometimes-strolling journey through a dream world as wild and beautiful as Neil Gaiman's but ruled by a warrior-queen who's everything Wonder Woman ought to be. Promethea is a living story, and she's just taken over a new human host. The previous incarnations, like something out of Joseph Campbell, have ... Read More
The new issue of VICE is totally 90's dude, literally. Those kooky kids decided to make a high concept 'fake 1994' issue that is pretty cool. This is like a rare issue of INdex or something, with an interview with our pal Daisy Von Furth (X-Girl) by one of my fave writers, Amy Kellner, to Christina Kelly's love letter to My So Called Life, and Bob Nickas' Pavement interview! I have not seen the actual issue yet, and I don't know if these are real or imagined ... Read More
