Sew Mo's Alice Bag is so insanely perfect, I'm considering writing a song about it. I found it during one of my many frenzied hunts for the perfect oversized tote (I just can't get down with those jingly-jangly leather logo bags), and I seriously feel like I've stumbled on the Holy Grail here: Earth-friendly interfacing, lining and interior, with the perfect decorative buttons and hidden pockets galore.
Did you know that October was Domestic Violence Awareness month? Neither did I, but I think I'll celebrate this year by not going to Nevada, which, according to a recent study, ranks #1 in the rate of women murdered by men for the second year in a row. In the annual report from the Violence Policy Center (VPC), which analyzed 2006 homicide data, Nevada, with a rate of Nevada, rate of 3.27 murders per 100,000 is ranked highest, followed by South Carolina at #2 with a rate of 2.84 per 100,000; Alabama at #3 with a rate of 2.20 per 100,000; Oklahoma at #4 with a rate of 2.

The trailor is out for the Notorious B.I.G.
I am ashamed to say I didn't remember who Shirley Chisholm was. Any of you BUST-ies know who all these rockin' women are. I had to look a couple of them up. Should I just hang my head in shame or blame the school system? Or maybe it was all that summer weeding I did that wrecked my memory. Here are some others I had to look up: Elleen Collins, Althea Gibson, Shirley Franklin and I am still not sure who Couture Angels are, all I can find is a marketing group. Anyone? Kaos wrote this as a response to the great nappy-headed-hoe-gate of 2008. Take that Don Imus.
Just like the energizer bunny, the B's have been keepin' the party going since 1976!  NY show is with LCD Soundsystem and Hercules and Love Affair.
Vivian Girls Self-titled (In The Red) Destined to become a cult favorite, the Brooklyn-based all-gal rock trio Vivian Girls (with their name culled from the beloved Henry Darger) may remain just that. With jangly guitars and driving beats that sound like they were recorded in someone's basement (on a four-track, in 1972), it's hard to imagine this self-titled debut enticing the mainstream, though the DIY recording quality was surely a conscious decision. The album simply serves as enticement to see the Girls live, since raw energy like this can't properly translate to tape anyway.
It's always very exciting for us here at BUST HQ when our lovely interns go on to become superstars.
