SXSW ended days ago and yet I think some of us are still recovering. It was a full week of bands, parties, swag, tacos and margaritas. The first night in we checked out the K Records showcase. The Blow was unsurprisingly and indescribably adorable. This was my 6th time seeing her live, and I don't know how she does it, but she manages to outdo herself every time.photo by irockirollOn Thursday while running errands around Austin, Adam purchased a sweet set of maracas. His plan was to to bust them out at random shows in hopes of being invited up on stage for impromptu jam sessions.

Never marry a politician.

sxsw was amazing! i needed a full day to bounce back from it, but amazing none the less. i saw some really great stuff and actually, i can say without any kind of bias at all that the BUST party was among the best. It was really, really awesome. So many nice people came out and umm, it would be a total oversight to not mention the effin outstanding mojito's. Grand Ole Party (DH Records), Yacht (Marriage & States Rights Records), Mika Miko (Kill Rock Stars) and Heloise & the Savoir Faire (Simian Records) all played and rocked.

i know giving to good causes is one of those things that often gets thought about but rarely gets accomplished..i know for myself, this is true. especially with nary two pennies to rub together. but my good gal friend kimmie is trying to raise money so she can go on a mission to ghana and do some really amazing things for women there. i only wish i had her motivation. anyway, she's a great friend and a great lady and what she's doing is great...

I got home last night after the craze-o fun of SXSW, and I was only there for two days, I dont know how these kids do it! Mommy's is tired. Anyway, there were alot of tatoos, tube socks, beer, bands, spandex and booze. Here is a brief recap of what I saw: Started at the Kemado showcase and watched Children and the Sword, then headed over to the Kill Rock stars showcase and caught Telepathy. Next door was the amazing Does it Offend You Yeah at Elmos, and caugt the tail end of Tight Phantomz (they were tight).

You just can't sleep with all the major awesomeness going down at Austin's SXSW!!! BUST's sponsored showcases rocked it hard: http://www.bust.com/sxsw2008.

I received this precious email from a friend of mine. Her grandma has been an Avon Lady for almost 34 years now and needs just a few more orders to make “Presidents’ Club”. Jessica is hoping her friends can help. I am a broke joke but maybe some of you BUST-ies need some beauty prods. Her grandma sent this precious letter where she makes big promises!   You read it right, she will make you strawberry jam! I took out the number cause I didn't want any craz-os pranking this sweet jam-maker. Jessica made a website for her here.

Inclement weather meant I spent Saturday night in, but a few things made it a fabulous evening: fresh-baked snickerdoodles (thanks Caroline!), the bottle of wine we polished off, and catching Amy Poehler’s spoof of my Project Runway love, Christian Siriano. Not to mention the always awesome Bill Hader as the always awesome Tim Gunn and Amy Adams doing a fierce Heidi Klum.

This song has been stuck in my head for three days! Good thing it's awesome.
