Do you like art? Do you like ladies? Do you like art made by ladies? If you’re in Philly, you should definitely check out the show “Also, Books” which opens this weekend at Space 1026. And even if you don’t live in the area, you should peep the work of the show’s four inspiring women cause they are all crazy talented: Aidan Koch (that's her piece above) is an illustrator from the Pacific Northwest whose comics—full of bright colors and abstract stories—are intoxicating.

Grab your helmet and game face, because this Saturday the all-ages Hellcat All-Girl Alley Cat race will take place at Tompkins Square Park in NYC. No need to be speedy - this race is all about the points you earn for doing silly tasks on your bike. You only need three things to compete: a bike, a vajayjay, and fierce, competitive spirit. The winning title is fair game, whether you’re on a bitchin’ Bianchi or a rusty Schwinn. The participation fee is $10, which will get you a spoke card, t-shirt, and admission to the after-party.

BUST is looking for a talented graphic designer to join our team. Do you still love print? Do you want to work in an awesome and creative environment?

Last week, I got to spend an hour talking to the adorable Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart, designer of the line Vaute Couture, in her cozy West Chelsea studio. Vaute Couture (pronounced like “haute” but with a v for vegan) is a chic coat line that just so happens to be vegan, eco-friendly, and super warm! As an added bonus, Hilgart is a vegan queen. She knows every vegan restaurant worth knowing in New York City and beyond. She also happens to be best friends with one of my vegan man-heros, The Discerning Brute, aka Joshua Katcher.

  D.C. native and Brooklyn-based designer Ellen Van Dusen is Dusen Dusen. Her label is bursting with vibrant textiles featuring hand-drawn designs which complement her sleek, no-fuss shapes that say "relax—you can do this; I understand you." At the crux of Van Dusen’s designs are sought-after elements of comfort and accessibility without the sacrifice of personal style or dignity. The line is as wonderfully unpretentious and refreshingly laid-back as the designer herself.

I’ve got big love for this sisters-brother trio from London. I especially dig the downtempo ska vibe of this first single from their upcoming new album, Smoking in Heaven. Kinda makes me wanna skank, real slow like. Plus these ladies have a wicked fierce look: serious eyeliner, pompadours, and vintage galore. They even recorded their record entirely the old-fashioned way, using ribbon microphones and analogue tape. That’s dedication.   [video:http://www.youtube.

  The phrase “Let’s not get caught” has never held so much weight as it does in the final scene of Thelma & Louise. No matter how many times I’ve seen it (a lot), I still get chills. Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis are just SO DANG good, and talk about a feminist classic. The film turns 20 (!!) this year which means New Yorkers and Los Angelenos have a chance to not only see it on the big screen at special showings, but also to hear discussions about its impact from a panel of cool ladies in the industry (N.Y.C.) and the cast and crew themselves (L.A.).

Today is a victorious day for the supporters of Planned Parenthood. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has put into effect the new guidelines requiring health insurance plans beginning on or after August 1, 2012 to cover birth control, among other preventive services. The list of services that will now be covered includes free screenings for conditions such as gestational diabetes and the human papillomavirus (HPV), support for breastfeeding equipment, domestic violence screening, and counseling on sexually transmitted diseases.

For the second year, the BUST Magazine Craftacular will bring the most unique crafters and food artisans to Maker Faire New York. We're currently accepting applications for any and all handmade crafts and specialty foods! Maker Faire will take place on Saturday, September 17th and Sunday, September 18th at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, NY. This newfangled outdoor fair combines science, art, craft, engineering, and music in a fun, energized, and exciting public forum. Over 40,000 attendees are expected over both days.

One of the first comic strips introduced in my school’s comics course was Nancy by Ernie Bushmiller. My initial reaction? 'This confused, prickly-headed, hyphen-nosed child has no place in my heart!' I’m not a Sunday funnies kind of gal, so I didn’t understand what Nancy was trying to do. Is it supposed to be funny? Is it making some kind of point that I'm totally missing?  During the course, my professor introduced us to How to Read Nancy by Paul Karasik and Mark Newgarden.
