   Summer is almost officially upon us. The time for drunken 3 am stumbles home, the time for random party hook ups, the time for putting ourselves in generally risky situations for no real reason. This website couldn't have come to my attention at a more perfect time. It's a self defense video geared toward women, especially those of us (like myself) with no martial arts training or even the slightest idea of how to defend themself.
  Nothing cramps your stilo more than a sad, floppy pair of calf-high boots. Propping them up against a wall or another boot rarely works, and wish as you might that folding the tops over won’t crease the fabric… well. Let’s just say it’s recently become kind of a sore spot. (RIP, my beautiful suede knee-highs, RIP).    Luckily, these cutie Booty Shapers have swooped in to save my soles. The inflatable supports slip right into your fave boots and keep them looking brand new.
   I lived in San Francisco back in 2004 when mayor Gavin Newsom decided same-sex couples should be able to marry and I saw the crowd of ecstatic partners lined up outside of City Hall to take advantage of the opportunity. So, I can only imagine what the scene is like all over California today. In addition to gay marriage getting two thumbs up, SF-based singer/songwriter Larkin Gayl’s new album came out today, and to celebrate both she’s giving away one of the tracks, “I Do,” a sweet, happy song about marriage (gay or otherwise). Check it out.
Sometimes, it's good to return to your roots.I spent an enlightening day perusing the Barnard College Zine Library, curated by research librarian, activist and zinester Jenna Freedman (with the help of awesome zine intern Melissa).
My BFF is having a baby and I am in charge of the baby shower. Well the New York one, her mom is throwing a traditional shower for the fam and close friends. Sunday was the day we had the baby shower planning party/clothing swap (because I know dick about baby showers and wanted to come up with less vomit inducing games and ummm swap some clothes). The cover story of the Daily News that day was "Baby Gangstas"! We'd already been thinking the colors focus would be bling and not pastel, essentially dollabill-green and gold.
The Gotham Girls Roller Derby Jeerleaders need to get to Las Vegas for the second Annual RollerCon Jeerleader competition! Last year, the ladies won Best Squad, and they must defend the title! Join them at their pirate themed fundraiser to help make this happen! There will be bands, drink specials, raffles, prizes and plenty of good jeer! Live performances provided by Emily's all female punk band Royal Pink, Memphis Morticians, Ruffian Arms, and Scurvy Pirates. Pirate attire is strongly encouraged: $6 with costume, $8 without.
We get a lot of love at BUST, but when your four-legged companion gets some adoration, well that just takes the cake.  Thanks to Miss Nile from BULLYWARE for being so thoughtful.
 I lovelovelovelovelove Billie Piper, the sexy blonde from across the pond who stars in the UK's "Secret Diary of a Call Girl," so even though I have already seen the show's first season in its entirety, I have been eagerly awaiting its Showtime premiere (tonight at 10:30 PM ET/PT) for some time now.Though a lot of people have compared Call Girl, a show about life as a London prostitute, to "Sex and the City," the similarities between the two shows pretty much end at a) there's sex and b) they take place in cities.
So I was listening to my favorite radio station this weekend, WFMU.ORG, and Michael Shelly had a fascinating interview with the notoriously crochety Kim Fowley. You can download the archive here, its pretty awesome. Anyway, Mr.
