For the past two days, I've been walking around singing "when you're an Addams/Bababababababababa." Which is half real song, and half nonsense because I can never remember the lyrics to anything. This little tune has been stuck in my head ever since I was lucky enough to be able to see The Addams Family: A New Musical the other night.   Having lived in New York for two years now, I've only been to two Broadway shows, and they've both been been musicals; which is funny because I've never really been a fan of them.

Now that it's officially December, we all could use a little push into the Holiday season. Check out Annie Lennox’s bizarrely beautiful rendition of “God Bless Ye Merry Gentleman” and the equally beautiful (and bizarre) music video. Yes, there is auto-tune involved.   [video:http://www.youtube.

Jack Black is said to be developing a new show about adolescent girls with the foreboding title of Tiny Monsters. (Apparently, the working title was Little Bitches, but, unsurprisingly, that one never got off the ground.) Working with him is Ali Rushfield, who previously wrote for Fox’s Undeclared, which was a pretty funny show with pretty weak female characters.   Why be wary? Consider the facts:-It’s on Fox, home to the sad, sad, 21st century The Simpsons, as well as Family Guy and its never-ending supply of creepy spin-offs.

  Since I’m a big fan of both eating and food, there is nothing more enjoyable than perusing the (web)pages of a good food blog.

Oh, Margaret Cho! The first time I ever saw a BUST magazine, my friend held up a copy with Cho on the cover and told me, “You would love this.” Since Margaret went to my high school (briefly, anyway), and grew up in my hometown of San Francisco, I kinda feel like I grew up with her. Her never-ending career remains impressive, especially considering she always does her own raunchy, unique, non-typical famous lady thing. And now she's just gotten her second Grammy nomination, for the 2010 musical comedy CD “Cho-Dependent.

Peaches has always been as nasty as she wants to be. For the last decade, we've fallen hard for her ultra-trashy and super sexy style of electro-punk. But the Canadian-born cocksure shock rocker has a little somethin' up her sleeve to close out twenty-ten: her one-woman rock opera Peaches Christ Superstar Next Friday, Peaches brings her 90-minute modern twist to Sir Tim Rice and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber's legendary 1971 opus Jesus Christ Superstar to the States. For Peaches, it's somewhat of a pipe dream that's been taking shape since her teenage days.

  In Malaysia this week there has been a new bus line introduced in an attempt to quell sexual harassment. The Rapid Lady Bus service will run the most popular bus lines during peak-hours so that passengers can have the choice of stepping into a women-only pink bus rather than deal with the jostling and harassment of men.   RapidKL Bus Chief Operating Officer Datuk Mohamed Hazlan Mohamed Hussain said, “This is based on feedback received from our customers, especially females, who shared with us their discomfort during peak-hour travels.

In February of 1961, the 18 members of the U.S. Figure Skating team--along with their families, friends and coaches--made their way to the World Championships in Prague. Sadly they never arrived. Their plane crashed in Belgium, killing the entire team and all other passengers on board. In honor of the upcoming 50th anniversary of the tragedy, the U.S. Figure Skating Association will be releasing the movie Rise. The film's website explains: "Rise will document the sport's growth in popularity over the years and feature various luminaries of American figure skating.

Debbie Tuch, BUST Craftacular vendor and the artistic mastermind behind Glitterlimes was given the wonderful opportunity of decorating the Christmas tree at Lincoln Square in Dante Park this year for the 11th Annual Winter’s Eve festival that took place Monday night. Having just moved here from San Francisco, being able to decorate the tree was a wonderful welcome to the city for Tuch, and a great way for her to get her adorable, glitzy pieces noticed.
