For awhile now my economy gauge has been the price of a slice. I am very rarely in a car (I think I have only pumped gas once this year) so telling me how many miles to the gallon your car gets and how much it costs at the pump means dick to me. I have a sort of 'I pitty the fool' mentality for drivers. Even though I know gas prices effect everything including printing prices at BUST HQ, nothing drives the message home like a $3 slice. Watching the price of pizza is my equivalent to the dow.

Now that the cold season is upon us, it's time that I share my very favorite cold-fighting remedy with y'all: the amazing super-easy magical garlic soup! My BFF told me about this at least 15 years ago, and I've been making it ever since whenever I come down with a nasty case of the sneezies. The basis of its magic is the fact that it's a pain-free way to get a ton of raw garlic into your system, and, according to garlic-central.com (garlic-central.com??!!!), 'Scientific research has shown that people taking garlic can suffer less from colds than a control group.

I found this today on videogum, dont know if its real but really, who cares? This granny is adorable. I have always admired the styles of the elderly, and was reminded of this awesome blog, Advanced Style. There are some real elegant dandies on there, as well as plenty of old broads rocking over-sized glasses, see if you can find your future self there! I did.

Why is this show so good? No matter what else is on, I will immediately dig into any episode, especially since it seems like it 's always on, airing on about every channel except PBS. Hugh Laurie is peculiarly attractive to me, even tho he's totally not my type. Just re-watched the episode where House gets shot and that other guys' balls explode on USA, and now I can just flip to Fox for more episodes, this is good tv, people, and plenty of it.

Boss Hog, the punk rock spawn of Cristina Martinez and Jon Spencer will return for their first show in 8 years following a mini tour in Europe and performances at All Tomorrow's Parties.  Joining Boss Hog at the Bowery Ballroom on Dec. 17th is a full compliment of rhythm and grind, featuring the country punk moxie of Tennessee's Those Darlins , the titillating parade of burlesque goddesses Harvest Moon and Dirty Martini , and special guest DJ Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Sponsored by BUST.

If you happen to be in NYC anytime soon, check out the William Eggleston retrospective, Democratic Camera at the Whitney , it's pretty inspiring. Long known as the godfather of modern color photography, his pictures capture the beauty in the mundane suburban South of the 60's and 70's. The show is up until January 25th.
