Now I'm no Barbie expert, but having 2 daughters I have seen my share of Barbies over the years. Last night there was a commercial on TV for the lastest Barbie toy, and I swear her lips were plumer than ever! I guess that would be collagen, I dont know. I do know she gets a new face every few years, and I should not be surprised since she is just a reflection of the crazy culture we live in, but ugh, come one Mattell! Yuck.
Word to the wise…  Before it’s too late, check out one of my all time favorite artist of our generation at the Whitney (closes Feb. 3, 2008).  The first full-scale American museum survey of the work of artist Kara Walker: My Complement, My Enemy, My Oppressor, My Love features works ranging from her signature black-paper silhouettes to film animations to more than 100 works on paper. And if you’re not in NYC, the exhibition will travel to the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (March 2-June 8, 2008).  ps,In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.

There are a few things that the ladies at BUST HQ have an unforgivable sweet tooth for: Babycakes, cheese (doesn't matter what kind), See's candies, and coffee...every day. We're fortunate to be in close proximity to one of the best coffee shops in town, but when one of the 'terns went out to do the usual caffeine run this morning, we were kind of panicked when we were informed that their espresso machine was down. Bollocks!Thankfully for us, we have David Lynch. Yep, that David Lynch. He makes coffee! And we have it! Here's a pic of it in its natural habitat next to Callie's crystal skull.
For those of you that are waiting for that Le Tigre reunion, dont hold your breath! I have no idea if that's ever happening, but in the mean time, you can check out JD Samson and Johanna's project called MEN. I bumped into JD the other night at Home on the LES and she told me about it. I think its a band, but I also know they DJ around together.
