For all the movies I've seen, there's a shit ton that I haven't. When Debbie found out the other day that I've never watched All About Eve, she nearly excommunicated me from the office until I could say that I had. Well, since we're on deadline she let me stick around but it got us talking about what films belong in BUST's Movie Hall of Fame.

If these lovely ladies look familiar it's probably because you've seen them grace the pages of BUST Magazine. Busy and Melissa were models in last year's Feb/March fashion story. They've just released their newest record, and it's pretty awesome. You can read BUST's glowing review in the latest issue. They also have a slew of shows coming up. Check out Telepathe's myspace for all the info...

I am totally TMZ'n over Frank Lloyd Wright every since one of my besties, Fabrisha Dankins of Drunky Brewster Fame, turned me onto Loving Frank, I think it was last summer. You probably are familiar with Wright's architecture but you may not know about his life, which should've totally been made into a movie by now, unless it already has been and I missed it. Not a documentary but a full blown Hollywood to-do. I suggest when they finally do adapt his life to big screen it gets based on Loving Frank.

If you haven't heard of the incredible book Handmade Nation by now, then you are certainly missing out! Written by Faythe Levine and Cortney Heimerl published back in October, the book has since become a documentary capturing the burgeoning craft and DIY movement across America. Currently there are screenings across the country (and other countries), and this week the flick is debuting in the big apple. The premiere screening on Thursday is completely sold out, but there are dates following on the 14th and 15th at the Museum of Arts and Design. Check out more info here.

Singer and style icon M.I.A. has done it yet again with her unique fashion sense.  Despite being nine months pregnant and ready to burst, M.I.A. kept her swagger while on stage alongside, Jay-Z, T.I., Lil Wayne and Kanye West at this years Grammy awards.  Between Kanye's ego and M.I.A.'s bump I was surprised there was enough room on the stage for everyone else.    I bet pregnant women across America are trying to figure out which maternity store sells sweet frocks like this, but I doubt you can pick this up at your local mall's, 'A Pea in the Pod' shop.  M.I.A.

I've been on the side of Nadya Suleman ever since the story broke that the octoplet-baring woman was single, jobless, and already had 6 kids to take care of. Yes, it is irresponsible for her to have so many children that she can't provide for. Yes, it may have been irresponsible of the Fertility Doc to implant 6 embryos. But I don't like the idea of a fertility doctor making decisions about how many babies a woman should have -- no matter what her circumstances.

Our good friend and frequent BUST photographer Aliya Naumoff has curated a photo show that opens on Feb. 18th at the Fuse gallery (back of Lit) 93 2nd Ave (between 5th and 6th Sts, 2nd Ave stop on the F), NYC. All proceeds from sales of the photos (of animals, natch) will go to the ASPCA.

'Fidelity': Don't Divorce... from Courage Campaign on Vimeo.  I just watched this video called 'Fidelity' that the Courage Campaign has put out with Regina Spektor to support their petition asking the Supreme Court to invalidate prop 8 and it totally made me well up. Like, did you know that Ken Starr has already launched an initiative that, if passed, would un-marry all the gay couples that already wed in California before prop 8? Madness. Check it out, and let your legislators know that the best valentine they could give our country would be the civil right to marry for all.

It's true, Humbert Humbert's be walking among us. I have been doing a bit of research on women's issues in the Middle East and upon doing so came across this story of an 8 year old girl being married off to a 47 year old man in Saudi Arabia. Part of me wants to believe it cannot be true. Part of me knows that this totally happens. I guess father's are marrying off their daughters under the ages of 15 to pay off debts and there is little to nothing that mother's or young girls can do about it. Gross.

  I've been totally on the fence about this octuplet thing since it started dominating the news. On the one hand, I think a woman's reproductive freedoms should extend to all facets of family planing. And I also think that people have been pretty harsh in their judgments of Nadya Suleman since the news broke that her now-famous babies are only the most recent editions to her brood of 14 in-vitro children.
