Sometimes, it's good to return to your roots.I spent an enlightening day perusing the Barnard College Zine Library, curated by research librarian, activist and zinester Jenna Freedman (with the help of awesome zine intern Melissa).
My BFF is having a baby and I am in charge of the baby shower. Well the New York one, her mom is throwing a traditional shower for the fam and close friends. Sunday was the day we had the baby shower planning party/clothing swap (because I know dick about baby showers and wanted to come up with less vomit inducing games and ummm swap some clothes). The cover story of the Daily News that day was "Baby Gangstas"! We'd already been thinking the colors focus would be bling and not pastel, essentially dollabill-green and gold.
The Gotham Girls Roller Derby Jeerleaders need to get to Las Vegas for the second Annual RollerCon Jeerleader competition! Last year, the ladies won Best Squad, and they must defend the title! Join them at their pirate themed fundraiser to help make this happen! There will be bands, drink specials, raffles, prizes and plenty of good jeer! Live performances provided by Emily's all female punk band Royal Pink, Memphis Morticians, Ruffian Arms, and Scurvy Pirates. Pirate attire is strongly encouraged: $6 with costume, $8 without.
We get a lot of love at BUST, but when your four-legged companion gets some adoration, well that just takes the cake.  Thanks to Miss Nile from BULLYWARE for being so thoughtful.
 I lovelovelovelovelove Billie Piper, the sexy blonde from across the pond who stars in the UK's "Secret Diary of a Call Girl," so even though I have already seen the show's first season in its entirety, I have been eagerly awaiting its Showtime premiere (tonight at 10:30 PM ET/PT) for some time now.Though a lot of people have compared Call Girl, a show about life as a London prostitute, to "Sex and the City," the similarities between the two shows pretty much end at a) there's sex and b) they take place in cities.
So I was listening to my favorite radio station this weekend, WFMU.ORG, and Michael Shelly had a fascinating interview with the notoriously crochety Kim Fowley. You can download the archive here, its pretty awesome. Anyway, Mr.
Women, know your limits! Lifetime FOB (friend of BUST) Sheila B. from Xenomania Records sent this link to the office. Classic. It is from a British comedian Harry Enfield. Apparently he had a show on the BBC last year, check out a more recent video where a man scuttles away in horror because very intelligent women disgust and frighten him.
I have always loved Kels, and like a crazy Michael Jackson fan I wondered if found guilty, what would become of my love. Could I turn a blind eye or would I be so sickened I wouldn’t be able to have sex to “The Zoo” anymore? Would I have to change my ringtone from “Sex Weed” out of fear people would think I was a child pornographer supporter? Could I keep a child pornographer in my top 5 favorite people in the world list? I no longer have to worry; if the jury says they can't prove it I believe them.
Did anyone read this article from The New York Times last week? Admissions deans from top women’s colleges—including Bryn Mawr, Mount Holyoke, and Smith—recently spent some time recruiting female students in the Middle East. Seems like it could be a sweet deal: despite the best efforts of single-sex supporters like “boy-crisis” ringleader Leonard Sax, a lot of American high school females might not even consider applying to a woman’s college. International applications could definitely boost the selectivity of Seven Sisters-like institutions.
  Did any one catch My Life on the D List last night? It was hilarious as usual, and she was a great presenter on the Bravo Awards. It took me awhile to get with Kathy, I remember when she was getting all that plastic surgery and it kind of creeped me out. But luckily I'm over it. Whether she's telling Jesus to "Suck It' or making fun of Oprah, she's always funny.
