  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.

This T-shirt from Bernhard Willhelm's first ready-to-wear collection lets your feminist impulses go wild without risking third degree burns/depleting your lingerie supply. Right now it's only available around the Australia/Japan 'hood, but keep your eyes peeled. . .
Marvel just made one bizarre, unexpected decision in merging with the Walt Disney Company. But the comic book super troop recently made another bizarre, unexpected decision--except this one is actually kind of cool. In July, Marvel released Divas, a comic featuring some of the hottest females in the Marvel universe: Hellcat, Firestar, Photon, and Black Cat, to be precise. Comics with this many X chromosomes usually become illustrated skin shows, chock full of gratuitous butt/boob shots and pseudo-bondage scenes (tentacles, snaky vines, spider webbing . . . use your imagination).
I grew up listening to Peter, Paul, and Mary--my sisters and I belting 'Leaving on a Jet Plane' dramatically in our kitchen on many a rainy afternoon. While an enduring obsession with sixties culture and folk music grew out of this, so did a lifelong admiration for Mary Travers, the magnetic, intense, immensely talented soul of one of the biggest folk acts of all time. Travers passed away yesterday, at 72.
At long last, Diablo Cody's much anticipated horror flick Jennifer's Body is hitting the theaters this weekend, and I have two words for you: See. It. Don't rely on the infamous 'red band' trailer to inform you. It was obviously put together by dudes for other dudes, as were the smattering of negative reviews the film has already gotten by guys complaining that it's not scary enough or not funny enough or whatever. The fact of the matter is, this film is so radically and refreshingly both funny and scary from a female perspective, the boys simply don't know what to do with it.
Making the rounds at the BUST office this morning is this video by the Get 'Em Mamis, a kickass rap duo from Baltimore who deserve some space on your iPod. So stop everything and listen right now -- whatever you're doing can wait till after you've heard the Mamis. In case you've never heard of them before, here's a little tidbit they proudly display on their MySpace page: last year Rolling Stone ranked their song 'Cold Summer' higher than Lil Wayne's 'A Milli' on the Singles of the Year list. Are you skeptical? Don't be ashamed, so were we.
By Tao Lin Melville House Publishing Tao Lin is notorious for being a writer who enjoys a good gimmick. He has delighted in making his fans uncomfortable at book readings by repeating the same word or phrase over and over for six minutes, and for storming Brooklyn with viral marketing campaigns such as plastering any found surface with stickers that simply read, 'Britney Spears.
I think it's funny my hump-day treat is right after a post featuring an almost naked dude (oww oww!).
