This YouTube gem has been hanging around for about a year, but I never seem to get tired of it. Sometimes I'll be walking down the street, and I'll get a Miss Cleo flashback. It just feels good.
 This just in! Our favorite cheeseball connoisseur, Amy Sedaris, will be signing her comedy cookbook, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence, at this year's Craftacular!!! If we're lucky, she'll bake some cupcakes and teach us how to properly clean out our bongs. If your dorky relatives are visiting that weekend, ditch 'em!BUST Magazine Holiday Craftacular Saturday, December 8, 200710am - 8pm@ The Metropolitan Pavilion, NYCP to the S, It's not to late to apply as a vendor for the Craftacular!

This Sat I got to go to see Keisha Cole and Eve at the Rock Corps concert. I felt kind of dirty being there since everyone else had to volunteer 4 hours of community service to get a ticket. But whatever I needed to see Keisha Cole! No tickets were sold, the only way to get in was to work it out (unless you got the press hook up!). I am sure it was worth all the hours of fence painting and weed pulling because the show was a radio rap explosion, and I have a soft spot in my heart for catchy radio rap songs.
See skaters from all four GGRD home teams line up against the All-Stars from one of Gotham's sister leagues out West when the nationally ranked "Wheels of Justice" all-star team from the Rose City Rollers (Portland, OR) land on our home soil on October 13th at City College of New York's Nat Holman Gym.
Here at BUST, one of our eternal Boy du Jour's is David Lynch. As the genius behind such classics as Twin Peaks, Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, The Elephant Man and so much more, Lynch has had an unprecedented impact on cinematic history. So when I first heard about the new David Lynch documentary chronicling his creative process throughout the making of Inland Empire, I immediately started to plan out my Log Lady costume to wear on opening night. If Trekkies can do it, why not Lynch Heads?Check out this trailor!  Like a cup of damn fine coffee...You can see part 2 of the trailor here.
Tease-O-Rama, America's first convention dedicated to the fabulous and all-around over-the-top world of cabaret and burlesque is happening this weekend! From classic glamour to wry satirical commentary to carnivalesque freak-show talents, Tease-O-Rama has it all! See performances from over 200 contemporary pinup queens, take classes on tassle twirling, watch films, and MEET the legends of days gone by.
While this video does not make me want to go out and buy Dove soap, I do think it's pretty cool that they are recognizing the onslaught that we see everyday, and opening the discussion of body image  to young girls. I mean, my 12 year old knows an anorexic boob job when she sees one, and thinks its gross, yet you cant help wonder what the day to day exposure is doing to her/us. And as its illustrated here, there is an awful lot of it out there.
we, at BUST, have a pretty sick ass job. if something awesome in women's culture turns up, we know about it. last year, when the series ugly betty hit televisions everywhere, we knew it was gonna be huge. and we couldn't be happier about a strong, smart, independent WOMAN being at the center of it all. it's about damn time.  check it kids--i've had a running day count on my tv forecast widget (yes i said it) for the past 46 days waiting for this day to come. ugly betty will grace our lives and our living rooms with her return to primetime television tonight. you know what to do...p.s.
