Our favorite director/actress/performer/author Miranda July just announced a NYC reading on Oct. 5th as part of The New Yorker Festival, tickets go on sale Sept, 15th thru ticketmaster. If you've never seen her speak or perform live, you owe it to yourself to check her out, she is one charming and lovely lady! There will also be an amazing interview with her in the new issue of BUST, on newsstands at the end of Sept. In other MJ news, I was happy to see that contrary to accusations by now deceased cuckoo artists, Miranda went on record as saying she is most defintely NOT a Scientologist.

Former BUST cover gal and french chanteuse/actress/mom Charlotte Gainsbourg is apparently recovering from surgery for a brain hemorrhage. We wish her a speedy recovery, according to this article she will be fine.

 Now THAT puts me in the holiday spirit! Don't forget, Jewish New Year is coming up on 9/13, so stock up on apples and honey, dust off your shofar, and prepare to get LOOSE! Big ups to Rosh Hashanah Girl for the semetic song stylings.

A few months ago, a mysterious email was sent out from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs  inviting fans to a free and hush-hush performance at the Glasslands Gallery in Brooklyn. There were two performances, each with a capacity of just 100 people and the second show being exclusive to just the ladies-- no vagina, no show. That night, they came, they passed out Zorro masks, and they fucken rocked. Like me, you have no excuse to not have been there. But lucky for us, both shows were filmed and can be seen on the latest YYY EP, Is Is.

 I love food. And I love San Francisco (my former home). So when I saw artist Liz Hickok’s “San Francisco in Jell-O” series I totally fell in love. The series includes photos and videos of San Francisco landscapes that she’s cast in Jell-O. In Jell-O!! First she makes scale models of landscapes like the row of Painted Ladies (aka The Full House houses) or the Transamerica building out of balsa wood and foam. She uses these to make molds which she uses to make the finished Jell-O sculpture. Amazing.

 CALLING ALL CRAFTERS!We are so excited to announce that the 2007 Holiday Craftacular is set to happen on Saturday, December 8!!! As a result of the enormous success of the past two years’ craft fairs, this year’s shopping bonanza will be more than THREE TIMES as large! We'll be handpicking 200 of the most unique and talented crafters from across the country to sell their wares.

I want a pink car, dammit!Last year, Nisssa painted one of their compact model cars pink, then toured it around the UK as part of a breast cancer fundraising event. NOt surprisingly, folks begged Nissan to produce the car in pink for reals -- and they did. The 100 units sold out quickly, so they came back with another 150. STateside we never even had a chance at this pink panther, since this cutie car, the Nissan Micra, isnt' even for sale here. It's not the first time a pink car has been made -for a good number of years, Fiat made their car, the Panda, available in varying shades of pink.

Both The Duke Spirit and Henry Rollins have been in BUST before and our heart for them will go on. I got to hang with these guys last time they were in the states on tour and they were an absolute pleasure. I kind of got myself a little crush on Luke. He is the one in the black peacoat. Pretty hot, huh.  If you haven’t heard their guest song “Mayday” on UNKLE’S debut album War Stories you are totally missing out. Check out the live performance of their song “Lasso” from their sophomore album tonight on Rollins’ show at 11 on IFC.

We know we're getting all creepy trekkie-obsessed with the dudes from Flight of the Conchords, but we can't stop ourselves. In last week's episode, they sang a love song to all the ladies of the world (from Namibian to amphibian; erudite to hermaphrodite). Now it looks like the ladies are singing back!First up, the soulful "Jemaine", from a future Mrs. Clement:  Next, "Bret. will you be my Ukelele lover?" from a Mrs.
