  BUST Magazine's Holiday Craftacular is set for Saturday, December 13, in NYC, and it's going to be our BIGGEST ONE EVER! If you would like to be a vendor, please apply here.
The trailor is out for the Notorious B.I.G.
I am ashamed to say I didn't remember who Shirley Chisholm was. Any of you BUST-ies know who all these rockin' women are. I had to look a couple of them up. Should I just hang my head in shame or blame the school system? Or maybe it was all that summer weeding I did that wrecked my memory. Here are some others I had to look up: Elleen Collins, Althea Gibson, Shirley Franklin and I am still not sure who Couture Angels are, all I can find is a marketing group. Anyone? Kaos wrote this as a response to the great nappy-headed-hoe-gate of 2008. Take that Don Imus.
Just like the energizer bunny, the B's have been keepin' the party going since 1976!  NY show is with LCD Soundsystem and Hercules and Love Affair.
Vivian Girls Self-titled (In The Red) Destined to become a cult favorite, the Brooklyn-based all-gal rock trio Vivian Girls (with their name culled from the beloved Henry Darger) may remain just that. With jangly guitars and driving beats that sound like they were recorded in someone's basement (on a four-track, in 1972), it's hard to imagine this self-titled debut enticing the mainstream, though the DIY recording quality was surely a conscious decision. The album simply serves as enticement to see the Girls live, since raw energy like this can't properly translate to tape anyway.
It's always very exciting for us here at BUST HQ when our lovely interns go on to become superstars.
Ever dreamt about how much fun it would be to vote, AND party at the same time?! Well, for those of you who have, your dreams have come true. Tomorrow night @ Sutra Lounge, Children of Da Curb  in collaboration with Pink Positive NY (sponsored by yours truly), will be offering voter registration to its attendees from 10 to 11PM. Seeing as this is the biggest election of our lives coming up, it is absolutely imperative that everyone register to VOTE...and then, actually VOTE. Don't miss out. Let your voice be heard.
Photographer Jill Greenberg has gotten herself into a real shit storm since she posted some doctored images of McCain on her website a few weeks ago. She was hired by The Atlantic Monthly to shoot him, and not long afterward got creative with the photoshop, including a version with bloody fangs and even one with a monkey pooping on Mccains head(!) It all seems a little extreme to me, not to mention damaging to her career. (Apparently her agent dropped her like a hot potato). And even tho I think McCain is a douchebag, it seems like a dumb move.
  We're busy cranking the BUST website up to 11, and we need some help! If you know your way around the internets, have some computer graphics experience and some programming knowledge, and are looking to get some on-the-job experience to pump up your resume, we'd love to have you here. Qualified applicants must be located in NYC, available at least 2 days a week, have their own Mac laptop computer, and be familiar with BUST magazine. This internship is unpaid. Interested? Email your name, address contact phone number,  and  qualifications to debbie@bust.com.
