There has been a whole slew of fun dance/rock/disco bands coming out in the last few years, like Daft Punk, LCD Soundsystem, Justice and Simian Mobile Disco, but my current fave of the bunch is 23 year old Calvin Harris from the UK. His mix of juicy slabs of funk and goofy falsetto lyrics on his new release, I Created Disco, (out here in Sept.) is simply irresistable. And in an absolutele genius marketing/promotional move, he's asked his UK fans to stage simultaneuos house parties on Aug. 18th, the night of his single release.

Twisted toy lovers rejoice! DKE is releasing this lil' luv bug designed by Shane Geil from Purple Flavor just in time for the back-to-school blitz. Hello Maggot:$12. The look of joy on your new college roomie's face when she sees Hello Maggot perched on her pillow: priceless.

Okay, so, yeah, I'm totes obsessed with Flight of the Conchords , and always enjoy the songs in their episodes-- those funny, pitch-perfect takeoffs on various music genres.

I loved it. I prefer this job but it was a brilliant job. I still dream that I do that job sometimes, it’s funny.

Last week, a few of the BUST gals had the pleasure of attending another Mode Merr Fashion & Burlesque Brunch! The party went down at ultra retro-chic Marion's Continental Restaurant and Lounge. Not only were the omelettes and french toast amazing, but the fancy pomegrante cocktails really sweetened the deal as well.  Burlesque dancers, including The World Famous Bob, (high) kicked off the show with performances down the runway.

Everyone's probs already seen this, but I dig it, so here ya go.

I just can't get enough of Lavender Diamond and the superawesome, head-in-the-clouds, peace-on-the-brain mastermind behind their sweet, folky melodies: Becky Stark. Her voice soars and their album, Imagine Our Love, is a perfect summer soundtrack. Watch her skate the day away in this almost-too-precious video for their song "Open Your Heart.

I love the fact that in NYC, you don't have to wonder what the general consensus is surrounding any new film. Just keep an eye on the glut of street advertising, and inevitably the writing will be on the wall...
