The BUST Holiday Craftacular is blowin' through New York City on December 6th (that's a Sunday) and is jam packed with over 200 unbelievably talented crafters! We've got everything to cover your holiday shopping list from jewelry to clothing, to soft, warm and cozy knits, perfect for the blustery winter months ahead. One such vendor is De*nada Designs, a fabulous line of cozy handknit wears from hats to scarves and everything in between. They've revamped their site and show off their collection with models and beautifully shot photos.
Okay, Okay, everyone knows how super cool Jon Spencer is, but have you seen him lately? People, if Heavy Trash is coming to your neck of the woods on tour, I strongly advise you get yourself out to see this band perform. They KILLED it last month at the record release party, and I can safely say he's one of the greatest performers of our time. Check out the latest video for Gentle, off their latest album Midnight Soul Serenade on Fat Posum. PS. this vid was made by my main squeeze, the super duper talented Michael Lavine.  [video:http://www.youtube.
Very, and you must pick up the new BUST and read the interview with Amy, done by the hilarious Rachel Dratch.
What could be more romantic than wearing sexy lingerie for your special someone? How about sewing a GPS tracking device into it? Huh?! That's right ladies. Thanks to Brazilian designer Lucia Iorio and her LindeLucy Lingerie line, your man will never have to waste another sleepless night wondering where his free-roaming, wanderlust-consumed woman is. Welcome to the "Find Me If You Can" line, where each piece of lingerie comes equipped with a very visible, pager-sized GPS sewn into the bodice.

If you live in the New York City area, and are looking for cute, unique gifts for the holiday season, look no further than the third annual Lov-able & Hug-able plush show (sponsored by your favorite magazine, BUST)! Dying for a pocket-sized robot or a hug-sized, eye-patched monster? You're sure to find them here. With a 2009 theme of "Medium and Mini", these adorable little plushes will fit anyone's budget. Over 40 top plush artists from around the world will be featuring their creations, including designer toy giants Devil Robots and Noriya Takeyama.
Mustaches are everywhere these days -- on necklaces, on your guy friends, on celebrities, on your the finger you're holding up to your face. And now they're on your wall, too, thanks to illustrators Aya Kakeda and Nina Frenkel, otherwise known as the Mustache Sisters. The Mustache Sisters make adorable, mustache-shaped plush picture frames inspired by their own giant mustache, crafted for the NYC Hungarian Cultural Center's Mustache Contest. These are definitely the cutest mustaches I've seen around lately.
I love this new video from Nneka, the Nigerian-born, German-based singer and songwriter. She'll have a full length album, The Concrete, out in Feb 2010. Click here for tour dates and downloads. [video:http://www.youtube.
Love it or hate it, you can't avoid Twilight. Last night, I joined several other BUSTies (and about a million swooning girls) for a midnight screening of round two of my favorite teen vampire drama. To sum up -- it was AMAZING. If you're going to sit through a two-hour-long angsty teen drama, there's no better way to do it than with tons of screaming teenagers and their mothers. I haven't heard so much squealing at an event since the Backstreet Boys concert I went to in seventh grade. They screamed when the lights went down.
