Everyone knows that Esquire is all about sexy girls wearing sexy underwear and looking all sexual so the boys can feel that they have a chance in this life, but as I was flipping thru the latest 'Sexiest Woman Alive' issue the other day, I had to do a double take. They have a page dedicated to The Women of Flight of the Conchords, with a picture of Jemaine's love interest squishing her boobs together, along with a tiny picture of Coco and some other waitress that I barely remember. But no Mel.
 I have been in love with Dame Darcy's Meatcake comics for years, so I was ecstatic to find out she is releasing a new graphic novel this month called 'Gasoline: A Rock and Roll Apocalyptic Fairytale.' If you haven't heard of Dame Darcy, she is a graphic artist, cartoonist and musician (and long-time contributor to BUST) who has acquired quite a cult following for her rollicking, gothic-Victorian comics.

This week John McCain criticized the ''Feminist left'' for attacking Sarah Palin. We think he's just frustrated that women weren't fooled by his whole my-VP-pick-wears-a-skirt-so-vote-for-me tactic. Eleanor Smeal, President of Feminist Majority, says, ''Obama/Biden are running on the strongest platform for women's rights of any major party in U.S. history.'' That's why Feminist Majority launched www.FeministsForObama.org, a side-by-side comparison of the candidates on major women's issues like breast cancer research, domestic violence prevention, the Fair Pay Act and reproductive rights.
 If you're in New York, you know it's that magical time of year. Yes, the CMJ Music Marathon has rolled into town and the city has turned into a 24/7 party of ear ecstasy! There are a million shows to go to this week, but be sure to check out the Fool's Gold Showcase tomorrow night at Bowery Ballroom at 10 pm. The label's finest will be performing, including A-Trak, Dave 1 and, of course, our favorite manicured MC, Kid Sister. She'll be spitting rhymes from her amazing upcoming debut, Dream Date.
A box of tampax last cost me over 6 bucks, which is what a drink costs at my favorite bar. I think I would rather spend that money on fun than on the hell that is dry cardboard and bleached cotton! Now you can save money and the environment with Lunapads! Liberate yourself from the monthly madness of disposable pads and tampons with Lunapads and the DivaCup. Given today's financial uncertainty and concern for the environment, taking charge of our monthly menses makes more sense than ever.
Two of my favorite artists are in a show together opening Thursday night in NYC, the lovely Melissa Auf der Mar (former bassist of Hole) and Conrad Keely from ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead. Melissa is showing her photography, and Conrad his ballpoint pen drawings. Should be an excellent exhibit.
A group of cheeky ladies in Brooklyn have found a way to show their support for Obama while encouraging youth participation in voting (and lookin' good). They updated the iconic protest poster of Joan Baez and her sisters taken by Larry Gates in the 60's. It's nice to see that politics can still be fun. The updated photo was taken by Casey Brooks and features Anna Bean, Karen Maine, Dana Gluck, and Lindsay Withers.
  Crucial friend and former intern Anna Holmgren sent this to my phone! It is on 7th between ave C and D. I would laugh at this no matter which politican was on it. Is everyone totally over political blogs? Cause I went to the McCain rally in Virginia Sat with my Nana and my dad and was going to blog it but maybe we need a break? (Sorry for the crappy pic and the set up of this post, I am on vacation at my parent's house and can't turn the pop ups on to mess with this.
