A few weeks ago we posted the last video created for Peaches "I Feel Cream" release for the song "Mud" but apparently there were two separate videos made for this song, and below is the 2nd, and it's pretty Fierce! We asked Peaches about it, and here's what she had to say: BUST: Who made the video, and why were two versions done? Peaches: Jasmin Tarasin made this video. She built a pit with a tractor to have the girls fight in.  I met her when she asked me to be involved in her live installation project called LIVE.

There's style everywhere you look in New York City, from walking around Soho and drinking on the Lower East Side to shopping in Williamsburg and eating in Queens, which is all the different places I found these stylish gals. NYC definitely carries a stylish crowd and that's one of my favorite things about this city. From dressing up to dressing down, there's always something different in the mix.

What do you get when you combine mid-2000 R&B duo Nina Sky, with the Witch House ladies of CREEP? Some dope dark track. Slow CREEP moody-electro goodness, with the sweet twin magic melodies of Nina Sky. Perfect music for the rainy NYC weather we've been getting. Time to turn on the Christmas lights in your room, sprawl out on the floor- and get real angsty and melancholy with it. CREEP consists of two NY based DJ's, Lauren Flax, and Lauren Dillard.

  I love drag. I always have; when I was about five years old I apparently watched the classic drag movie The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert so often that the tape of the VHS wore out. Now, 16 years later, I watch just about everything online, so there’s no problem if I want to watch the same thing over and over, like I’ve done with the first season of “Rupaul’s Drag U.

  Amateur cartographer and multimedia journalist Katie Gillett put together this handy map for hipsters on the prowl for new locales to ride their fixed gear bikes around. After driving across the country from Florida to Canada to California with the dictum “No pants, no plans, no priorities,” she thought to make the knowledge she'd gleaned into an accessible infographic: "The Post-Grad Hipster’s Guide to Inhabitable U.S. Cities." A busy and multi-talented lady, Gillett is currently at work making a socio-environmental documentary film.

Check out this hilarious pie-chart from MadAtoms.com, about what men think about menstruation. It's pretty on point, especially the 12% of men that think periods are dangerous- because they attract bears. I once asked one of my buddies why women aren't allowed to be Navy Seals, and he replied, "Ya know how many missions would be compromised by sharks that were attracted by periods??" This boy was DEAD serious. For shame!These bizarre ideas about periods are examined in Emily Martin's essay, The Egg and The Sperm: How Science has Constructed a Romance Based on Stereotypical Male-Female Roles.

Last Saturday, I attended Hot Bread Kitchen's Women Bake Bread, an all-day artisan bread workshop led by NYC's premier women head bakers. Hot Bread Kitchen is a non-profit organization that helps low-income and immigrant women learn the necessary skills to launch food businesses and find positions in food manufacturing. About 50 aspiring bakers and bread lovers attended this fantastic event, which was packed with hands-on workshops, demos, and tastings.During the roundtable discussion, the bakers encouraged more women to get into the "noble profession" of bread baking.

We’ve all heard it before: someone tries to inform young women about their options regarding an unwanted pregnancy, and they’re blamed for “promoting abortion” to young girls. But this time the attacks are coming from two Texan teenagers—against Girl Scouts. Tess and Sydney Volansk have launched a new anti-abortion rights website, Speak Now: girl scouts. The sisters were involved in Girl Scouts for eight years, but left after they “discovered that [the organization has] a pro-abortion mindset.
