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.

Ever dreamt about how much fun it would be to vote, AND party at the same time?! Well, for those of you who have, your dreams have come true. Tomorrow night @ Sutra Lounge, Children of Da Curb  in collaboration with Pink Positive NY (sponsored by yours truly), will be offering voter registration to its attendees from 10 to 11PM. Seeing as this is the biggest election of our lives coming up, it is absolutely imperative that everyone register to VOTE...and then, actually VOTE. Don't miss out. Let your voice be heard.

Photographer Jill Greenberg has gotten herself into a real shit storm since she posted some doctored images of McCain on her website a few weeks ago. She was hired by The Atlantic Monthly to shoot him, and not long afterward got creative with the photoshop, including a version with bloody fangs and even one with a monkey pooping on Mccains head(!) It all seems a little extreme to me, not to mention damaging to her career. (Apparently her agent dropped her like a hot potato). And even tho I think McCain is a douchebag, it seems like a dumb move.

  We're busy cranking the BUST website up to 11, and we need some help! If you know your way around the internets, have some computer graphics experience and some programming knowledge, and are looking to get some on-the-job experience to pump up your resume, we'd love to have you here. Qualified applicants must be located in NYC, available at least 2 days a week, have their own Mac laptop computer, and be familiar with BUST magazine. This internship is unpaid. Interested? Email your name, address contact phone number,  and  qualifications to debbie@bust.com.

Mmmmmmh...burgers. I'm drooling like Homer Simpson, my stomach's growling, and I wanna rip this Spicy South of the Border Vegetarian Burger off the page and eat it! Since that's physically impossible, I'm gonna follow this recipe from our health and yummy-conscious friends at Culinary Healing and make a big, juicy one as SOON as I get home.

I finally put up some of the pictures from the opening reception of Swoon 's Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea. The performance is over but the installation is still up until October at Deitch Projects. Her wheatpastes are breathtaking and the boats are amazing. The magic is really in the details so you really need to inspect the works up close. I put the flicks on flickr so you could make them larger but you really need to see this in person to take all the detail in.

Congratulations to the always humble and forever adorable Tina Fey for winning her best lead actress Emmy last night, as well as wins for 30 Rock and Alec Baldwin. 'I thank my parents for somehow raising me to have confidence that is disproportionate with my looks and abilities. Well done. That is what all parents should do,' said Fey.

Local changed how I viewed comics. I started reading this book about three years ago, with the first issue. I've been a comics junkie for years now, but Local was something different. It read like a short film, and its single-issue size made it feel like a perfect indie rock song. Now all twelve issues have been collected into a beautiful, oversize hardcover, complete with backmatter from the originals and extra art to boot. It's more a mixtape than a movie, a series of significant moments from one girl's life strung together to show, at the end, how she became who she is.
