Come on down and see one of NYC’s well loved “downtown darlings”!  World Famous *BOB* puts on a “one man show” at Joe’s Pub on Sunday, January 24th about a girl*who had to become a drag queen*to learn how to become a woman.
To all you West Coasters!  This Thursday, January 14 at 7:30 p.m. American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre Presents its 5th Annual Focus on Female Directors.  This event features short films from cinema pioneers, Oscar nominees, documentary filmmakers, international award winners, and some of the brightest upcoming artists emerging from the festival circuit. Included in the set is Jane Campion’s “Peel”(a.k.a. "An Exercise in Discipline").
If this statement speaks to you, then chances are- it’s the only thing that’s spoken to you all day. Unveiled at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas, Roxxxy, is a plastic doll to have sex with, AND then bore to death, with your awful conversations. If what you’ve been throwing down is not being picked up by the general human-based population, then this life-like robot is ready to be your prisoner. Now available, Roxxxy, is the customizable female version of TrueCompanion.com's, sex robot line.
    Julie Newmar will forever be known as Catwoman - a sultry villian on the campy 1960s Batman tv show. Like another version of Emma Peel,  Catwoman was swathed in black leather bodysuits with a luscious mane of hair. Not to mention, the cat ears.    She purred, she plotted, and she was the bad chick. Meow.   It's no surprise Ms. Newmar attained cult status with this role and stroked a few young minds as a result. As one thing naturally leads to another - Ms. Newmar is working on a book of first fantasies, on julienewmarwrites.
I would say that I listen to about 30+ different bands on any given week, and to be quite frank, most of them sort of bleed right into the next. I like to sit at my desk and listen to each new CD that comes into the BUST office with care, in its entirety, and then at the end I will make my evaluation by taping a little note to the cover that says something like, "this sounds like farts," or, "this is decent, but in an annoying way." When pressed to define what sort of music I prefer, I'm never really sure how to answer.
Did the Monday morning return to work leave you feeling a bit down? Never fear my friends, thanks to the beauty of YouTube, the universe has blessed us with mindless entertainment at the click of a mouse. Do you consider yourself a crazy cat person? (Shhh...your secret is safe with me). Even if felines aren't your cup of tea, you can't help but laugh at this montage of ridiculous cat clips, set to the rap-tastic stylings of BoyfriendsInc. WARNING: You might want to put that cup of coffee down before watching, unless you appreciate java shooting out of your nose while you laugh.
Any band that cites Madonna’s first album as a major influence is gonna get a listen from me. And in the case of the forthcoming EP from Class Actress (it hits ears Feb. 9), another and another and another. After totally falling for the Brooklyn trio’s throwback synthiness and lead singer Elizabeth Harper, who has a voice like buttah, I had to check them out at the Highline Ballroom last night, where they opened for Au Revoir Simone.
  In the new year we all stock up on new supplies: organizers, planners, and the usual calendar. Lauren Marsella sent us a neat little calendar today that's a bit unconventional, funny, and snarky. Instead of typical photos of puppies or canonical art pieces, Marsella has drawn portraits of dead celebrities.   Celebs are featured in the month he or she took the big sleep. Featuring some of the late and greats: Bea Arthur, Michael Jackson and John Updike (one of my favorite authors) kicks off the calendar.
Our good friend and frequent photography contributor, the brilliant Danielle St. Laurent, is a worldwide traveler who pops in and out of international airports like they were the corner candy shop.
It's an old joke that the G spot is a myth, but now kill- joy scientists in Britain claim it doesn't exist!After carrying out the widest ranging research ever undertaken into the elusive G, the team at King's College London reckon the sexual pleasure zone could be a figment of some women's imaginations - or something dreamed up by magazines or sex therapists.The way they carried out the research involved identical twins. Identical twins share all their genes, while non-identical pairs share 50% of theirs.
