Looks like it's an entire weekend of free shows with our best BUST band friends! This Sunday, Heloise and the Savoir Faire will be playing a free show at Music Hall of Williamsburg, (this place is kind of becoming my favorite spot), after the McCarren Pool Party. You may recognize Heloise from the feature we did on her in BUST, and from her performaces at our February issue release party and the BUST SXSW Hangover Lounge Party this year! She's a sassy lady and can belt out a mean soulful note.

One of my favorite N.Y.C. singer-songwriters, Anya Singleton , is having a record release party this eve for her new album, The Other Side, and you KNOW I'll be there, hungry for a dose of her signature rock 'n' blues. Swing by tonight, or pick up a copy of the album for your very own. Gail and I have been grooving to it ever since it came in!: Anya Singleton Album Release Party  Thursday, August 21, 2008 8-11 PM @ The Bitter End 147 Bleecker St. Between Thompson and LaGuardia N.Y.

I promise you this site will boggle your mind. Hands down the most insane condoms I have ever seen in my life. Hand painted? Lights? Music? What would you do if someone rolled one of these on when you were getting hot and heavy? First off you would have to put a condom on the condom to keep from getting paint chips all up in you. The lights and sound only go off when the tip is touched.

Maya Hayuk is a Brooklyn based muralist, photographer, painter, music video creator and all around bad-ass. I'd seen her impressive murals before, but had no idea that her art was so expansive until Alison F. sent me this fascinating/funny/inspiring video interview she did with Etsy. Wth a heavy focus on environmental art, Maya's work reflects a collaboration between architecture, and the surrounding community that her art lives in. Not only is Maya a popular muralist, but she's also an accomplished rock poster, t-shirt, and book designer.

VH1 TV Shows Music Videos Celebrity Photos News & Gossip I'm so excited for all the fall shows to start, and have seen the pilot for the Cho Show on VH-1, it is hilarious! I love Margaret, and can't wait to get into the rest of it. Check the trailer above. Oh and of course we'll have an interview w Ms. Cho in the next issue, natch.

At Your Cervix is a documentary film in progress exploring the connection between pelvic exams and the reality that most women experience them as painful and disempowering. The film breaks the silence around the unethical methods used by medical schools to teach students how to perform pelvic exams; the most egregious being on unconsenting, anesthetized women.

Stop me if you've heard this one before. 'I can't find a condom that fits me...so lets just not worry about it.' In an effort to give every dude a snug fit, German sex- ed teacher Jan Vinzenz Krause is working on developing a spray on condom. 'The prototype, which began testing last year, consists of a hard plastic tube with nozzles that spray liquid latex from all directions, much like the water jets in the tunnel of a car wash.' Unfortunately the prototype is taking too long to dry, so don't look for these boys on the drugstore shelf any time soon.
