I don't normally get nervous around celebs, but I just met Solange Knowles and I'm totally stoked!  I am such a Knowles family fan--they're all just so beautiful and talented.  She chatted it up with Laurie and we got to listen to songs from her new CD, and the first track was hot. And to make matters even more amazing, she complemented my hair.  Now this is pretty special for me because recently I've been obsessed with weaves (why wait for hair to grow!) and she totally thought my hair was all natural.  Thats pretty cool since I bet hers cost considerably more than mine...

Waaaaaaay back in the day, my brother-from-another-mother, Ian Allen, wrote a dirty little black comedy called Angel Shit, in which "a circle of Nebraskan junkies find themselves at the bloody epicenter of the War on Drugs." It totally kicked ass, and even got all feministy at the end, so I was psyched when I got to do the voiceovers for the play's monster truck rally sequences during it's run in DC. Now the play is having a revival here in NYC courtesy of End Times Productions, and I heartily recommend that everyone run out and see it.

 You may remember Tara McPherson, artist-cum-bassist of The New York Times from a past issue of BUST. If this name only conjures the seminal newspaper, here's a refresher:  New York Times hold an MFA, a Screen Actor’s Guild Card, a Congressional Press Pass, and have illustrated for Dark Horse and DC Comics. New York Press says New York Times reflect “the Kill Rock Stars back catalog… without crossing over into dated or nostalgic territory.

The New School is hosting a workshop for environmentally concerned but ultimately confused New York City consumers.

Luckily, you live in NYC, which has 46 green markets and 103 vegetarian restaurants.

If you're having a little trouble getting lucky below the belt, I suppose a lucky charm wouldn't hurt, but to dye one into your pubes? Get serious!Introducing, Betty, "color for the hair down there". This green "Lucky Betty" set came out just in time for St. Patty's Day. I wonder what kind of stencils they'd come up for Election Day...

The documentary At Your Cervix explores the connection between the way medical and nursing students are taught pelvic exams and the reality that most women experience them as painful and disempowering. At Your Cervix breaks the silence around the unethical methods used by medical and nursing schools to teach students how to perform pelvic exams; the most egregious being on unconsenting, anaesthetized women. At the same time, the film highlights the Gynecological Teaching Associate (GTA) Program in New York City.

The World Famous *BOB* Presents...

I love the Black Keys, their latest record Attack and Release (Nonesuch) is amazing, here is the video for Your Touch. I think one of the reasons I love them so much is that singer Dan Auerbach sounds exactly like Paul Rodgers from the 70's band Bad Company. Below is a BC clip from 1975, check out the crop top and white bells, and those might just be clogs on his feet.
