So the race is on, we've finally got it down to two amazing dems, and I for one am still a bit on the fence about who I will vote for Tuesday. I'm really feeling Hillary based on her experience, and, except for that baffling Iraq war vote (pretty bad) I do like her. However, Barry is a smooth dude, and he has the uplifting vibe going for him.

In Search of Good Food is a documentary film tour of California’s sustainable food system. The film explores all aspects of this very important movement that is helping to ensure an ongoing supply of healthy, ecologically and locally produced, economically affordable food for all Californians. This Saturday, help support this incredible movement by attending a benefit show to help complete the documentary. Enjoy live performances from NRSZ, Conspiracy of Beards, Light Leaks, and for a limited time only, Touched by a Janitor...

Celebrate BUST Magazine’s brand new February/March issue in NYC! Baby, it’s cold outside, so why not warm up on the dance floor with DJs Dirty Finger and Amylulita (Nacotheque/Le One Night Stand)who will be spinning your favorite jams all night long? Then hit the stage room for performances from Mixel Pixel and Heloise and Savoir Faire. The first 200 guests will fall in love with goodie bags sponsored by Quirk Books, Torrid, Lollibomb Beauty, Dark Candles, BurdaStyle, MAUstudio, Tulip Fashion Paint and Aleene's Craft Adhesives.

I’m always on the lookout for gals with sweet style because a) I’m hoping their fashion know-how will somehow rub off on me and b) working on the first page of our Looks section, where I get to interview a lovely lady about her steez, is one of my favorite parts of the mag. Siri Thorson, our style maven-of-the-moment, is too cute for words. I found her through her blog, Ringo, have a banana!, where she endearingly muses about everything from the pair of shoes she’s stalking on eBay to her fave thrift scores. But mostly it’s a visual feast of her killer vintage look.

A few months back we featured these New Zealand cuties in a fashion spread in BUST, and their new video has just been released. Heather and Jonathan are the Brunettes, and if they come to your town, definitely check them out live, their shows are very fun, as I'm sure you can tell from this Mystery Date inspired vid directed by our pal Darren Roark.

Catch Margaret on the Craig Ferguson show tonight, before she embarks on a huge tour of Australia and the US for her new "Beautiful". Dates here.

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.
