As most of you know already, I am starting a porn for labies called Ligerbeat . I was so stoked when my girl Gail hit me up about this symposium on sex in America this Friday at 7. Me and some of my porny ladies are totally gonna go. I am really excited to hear Cory Silverberg who has done workshops on feminist pornography speak! Get all the info here! It should be really interesting, also I bet the crowd is full of awesomeness too! I invited my friend Jill Abrahams, the creater of Cherry TV and I know she already bought tickets. It'll just be a who's who of sex brains.

Santi White, better known as Santigold, is playing live this Friday evening at the Apple Store Soho as part of the iTunes: Live from Soho series. Santigold: Live from Soho Friday, February 20 7:00 pm The Apple Store Soho 103 Prince St.

Courtesy of Warner Bros. Variety is reporting that Twentieth Century Fox is pushing back the release date of the Sandra Bullock flick All About Steve so it wouldn't go up against Warner Bros.' super-hyped comic book movie Watchmen. Of course, things get complicated when you add in the legal tug of war between Twentieth Century Fox and Warner Bros. over Watchmen rights, which resulted in Fox now 'having a stake' in Watchmen and essentially competing against itself. Fox is also claiming it doesn't want to 'risk saturating the market with too many femme-driven pics.

This kid is pretty cute. And with a creative imagination and obvious appreciation for tatts, (she has a husky on her arm!), she will no doubt grow up to be a BUST subscriber.

  In honor of International Women's Day (IWD) which is March 8 of this year (mark your calenders!!), the Lomographic Society and the chic French boutique, colette have gotten together to create a brand new (and may I say very, very cute) Diana camera for purchase.  But, the camera is not all!  Along with the Diana being revamped, a book full of dreamy photographs and text have been created to go with it.  The 'Dianalogues' showcase whimsical photographs taken by women in homage of International Women's Day.

So maybe you think Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, and Larry Clark were some amazing photographers. You probably think they had an amazing eye, sense of composition, appreciation for color, and so on. But when you look at the incredible found photo collection of  the mysterious Superbomba , you may reconsider. Or, at  least, you'll have a newfound appreciation for the importance of editing in the art of photography. Superbomba's gallery of found images are so gorgous, so full of meaning, so memorable, they would make John Szarkowski proud.

Last Tuesday night I went to see Lily Allen at the Bowery Ballroom with Matt and Kim and it was such an awesome show. Except for the people...When miss L.A. got on stage she was super cute (as usual) but when she took a swig from a glass of what could have been water or soda, everyone in the audience was shouting 'Yeah Lily! Way to go!' and other encouraging words for her to 'drink' even though she has apparently quit drinking and drugs entirely.

Remember the story we reported a few weeks back, about how men from an extremist conservative group called Sri Ram Sena had attacked a number of young Indian women who had been committing the horrible crime of having a pint at a pub? (Visit our earlier post to see the truly upsetting video of the attack ).

Since we're officially stranded in the gray purgatory between V-Day and spring (and all I want to do is hide under the covers, browse YouGrowGirl.com and wait for my daffodils to bloom), I'm drawn to anything floral--especially these sweet pieces by UK-based Sew Lovely. Designer Charlotte Alexandra's collection of jewelry and hair accessories bursts with blossoms, and nearly everything is well under $23. I can't wait to host a garden party in the Satin Petals necklace...you know, once I actually plant that garden I talk about every year.

Thursday night I went to see the Built by Wendy Fall collection and it was beautiful. With a mix of super short wool dresses and skirts and sleek pants, the vibe was part sexy librarian with a little mod kick for good measure. I really loved the tweed pants and jeans with the little tie at the bottom, sort of a reined in harem pant, but much more utilitarian than hippie. I also was digging the print D'Urberville dresses and tops which had a chic vintage look.
