San Francisco based singer/songwriter, Rykarda Parasol, has teamed up with multi-talented L.A. producer, musician, and singer, Dante White Aliano for the remix of "Your Arrondissement Or Mine?" one of the many great tracks of off Ms. Parasol’s latest album Against The Sun (BUST #82 Music Review, Aug/Sep 2013 issue).  Dante White Aliano is best known for his bands Dante Vs Zombies and Starlite Desperation, and Rykarda and Dante have also ...

SXSW has become such a mega-star in the summer festival constellation that it can be hard to sift through the clutter and find the one band/film/event that makes it all worthwhile.  I personally find the music festival way too hot to endure and the "Interactive" events a bit too chilly — but the film festival? The film festival is just right. I saw so many great films (and missed so many others...) that I wish I could have stayed another week. But for ... Read More
Thanks to her starring role in the girl-powered sci-fi epic Divergent, actress Shailene Woodley is quickly becoming Hollywood’s next “it” girl.

Dress: Meskita; Slip: Johnny Was; Bracelets: Dream Collective; Ring and Necklace: Gabriela Artigas The first thing I notice about Shailene (pronounced “Shay-LEEN”) Woodley is her feet—they’re bare. She’s just arrived at ... Read More
The Source is a fascinating new interview series designed and executed by celebrated artist Doug Aitken. Aitken artfully presents intimate and revealing interviews that give the audience a new lens through which to view the creative artists we are so familiar seeing, bringing attention to the lesser-seen process of creativity. I first heard about the project at the Sundance Film festival, which is part of the New Frontier program. At Sundance, The installation ... Read More

If you're not familiar, Comic Con is a popular culture and comic convention held annually around the country. It features a variety of different celebrities, artists, merchants, and most importantly FANS! Thousands of people fond of sci-fi, fantasy, gaming, comic books, anime, and cosplay gathered together at the convention center to hang out, meet some of ... Read More
  Macramé has been associated with all sorts of unsavory ’70s grossness in the past, but lately it has come back into vogue with a vengeance. Not just the product of too much time (and weed) on your hands, macramé is a rad, relaxing activity, and this plant hanger is a perfect way to show off the craft. The modern way to macramé is by using neon cords instead of earth-toned yarn, and by accenting it with hex nuts and washers, ... Read More

The terrific Jessica Williams appeared on Girls last night. This interview first appeared in Feb/Mar '13 of BUST Magazine with Jason Schwartzman. Subscribe Now! For most of us, our first job after college involves trying to keep up with people older and more seasoned than we are, adjusting to paying bills, and stumbling into adulthood.
