If you adore Karen O's costumes and Where the Wild Things Are, you're in luck because the two are coming together with a rock-n-roll kick! The lady behind Karen O's sometimes wacky costumes, Christian Joy, has created five monster suits based off of Max and the gang. All costumes will be sold at Space 15 Twenty, with a percentage of the proceeds going to 826 Valencia. You can get a look-see at the costumes here! (I want the Max costume...
Welcome to the Dollhouse is definitely my fave Todd Solondz movie so I'm pretty much in love with this print from illustrator Lauren Gregg. Wiener dog 4-eva! And for all you Harold and Maude fans (I mean, that's everybody, right?), there's one for you too.
Probably the best holiday ever, International Peace Day (which is today!) is a one day, worldwide call for ceasefire, global unity, and understanding. According to the U.N., who created the holiday back in 1981, Peace Day encourages 24-hours of political and personal peace; in other words, while governments slow down military combat, individuals can call a truce with that frustrating co-worker, nagging neighbor, or even that gosh-darn-slow-as-molasses red light that would, on any other day, incite undue rage. If you've never celebrated International Peace Day before, internationaldayofpeace.
Last week, Anna informed you that a new season of Green Porno is just about to start but I think I have better news for you (well, if you're near NYC, anyway)... Isabella Rossellini is going to be at the Barnes and Noble at 97 Warren St. at Greenwich tomorrow at 7:30 to discuss the Green Porno book, chit-chat about her quite lovely series and show screenings of the short films. Now, if you want her to sign your Blue Velvet or Death Becomes Her dvds, leave it all home for she'll only be signing Green Porno.
This past weekend I was just taking a stroll around the city and since I'm still new (have been here about a month), my eyes are constantly moving about--people watching, looking at buildings, trying to spot Matt Damon and Emily Blunt on the set of their new movie, etc. To my delight, I came about a little diddy I think you should check out. There's a performance installation called COVERS that is currently on view at the Lab Gallery (47th St. and Lexington in NYC) that consists of three performers wearing crocheted garments in a room of crocheted (almost) everything.

See performances and DJ sets September 19 at Santos Party House $5 with RSVP to sissybounce@gmail.
BUST loves a good burger. Veggie, cheese . . . it matters not. Hence, the cravings hit hard when this guy appeared on the desktop. Apparently, the Burger Bed (which Geekologie notes, is technically a cheeseburger bed) has its own Facebook fan page , and is exceedingly popular. I say, of course; it's a bed that looks like a giant burger. With pickle pillows. And lettuce linens. And i bet you anything it's vegan.
When I found out one of my fav childhood authors, Judy Blume, would be reading at this year's National Book Festival, I was beyond tickled.  As if I needed more convincing, I found that President Obama and first lady Michelle will be co-hosting the event! Now in it's 9th year, the fest will also feature Newbury Medal winner Lois Lowry, author of The Giver.  Latina writer Julia Alvarez will read to the masses, as well as Kay Ryan, who is in her second year as poet laureate.
  Hey New Yorkers...looking for something to fill the Sunday night void left by the finale of True Blood? Look no further. This weekend Lucha VaVoom is debuting its crazy mix of Mexican wrestling and burlesque at Webster Hall . As if the high-flying luchadores weren't spectacle enough, in between matches the legendary Wau Wau Sisters will hit the trapeze, Karis will hula-hoop her ass off (or maybe just her clothes), and L.A. burlesquers Ursulina and Lux La Croix will shake their moneymakers.
