Is there anything that Amy Sedaris can’t do? She is obvs a beautiful, talented, crafty, hilarious broad, (and two-time BUST cover lady).  But now she is adding fabric designer to her list of accomplishments. Sedaris collaborated with Windham Fabrics on her very own line of textiles, and they are as colorful and quirky as the woman herself. The line is set to debut in January 2013, so we all can look forward to crafting items cut from Sedaris cloth in the New Year. Windham has long...
Sometime around the release of his 1984 album Climate of Hunter, Scott Walker discorporated and his consciousness scattered. Periodically, he’s able to gather his atoms back together and create a harrowing dispatch from the ether before vanishing for another decade or so. His once-golden voice reduced to a haunted wail, Walker painstakingly recreates the sounds of traveling through half-existence surrounded by phantoms of the 20th century’s cruelty.

Actress Rebel Wilson was just announced last night to be the host of next year’s MTV movie awards.  Which will probably be the first time I’ll be watching them since I realized when I was 14 that MTV wasn’t actually cool.

Ellie Goulding ’s debut Lights reached the U.S. in 2011, but it didn’t take off for over a year. Now, Goulding is new pop royalty, and Halcyon presents a stark contrast to her introduction. Where Lights possessed an almost naïve view of the world, Halcyon shows her to have matured. Songs like “My Blood” and “Dead in the Water” take hopelessness to new heights. There are some nods to EDM—as on the Calvin Harris –produced bonus track “I Need Your Love”—but most of the al-...
I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for The Amazing Kreskin, the world’s greatest mentalist. I remember first being mystified by his mind-reading tricks during one of his 61 appearances on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in the ’70s. And when I discovered earlier this year that Hulu had made multiple episodes of his ’70s Canadian TV show The Amazing World of Kreskin available online, I devoured all the conversations on the occult he had with luminaries of the era like Phyllis...
