Miranda Huba’s new play, Hospital City, tells a poetic tale about two sisters desperately trying to escape their lives.  The sisters are introduced as poor drug addicts who’ve been at a debaucherous party all night and one of the sisters, Mia, has committed a wrongdoing.  It’s quickly apparent that Mel is always taking care of her sister Mia.  Mia is blissfully ignorant of any problem and is contented to stay at the party, but Mel is determined they escape for a magical place that will save them both: The Hospital.

Calling all compassionate consumers! Anyone who views clothing as a form of personal expression must check out the lovely vegan boutique Cow Jones Industrials. The beautiful, eco-conscious store can be found both online and at its brick-and-mortar location two and half hours north of NYC in Chatham, NY. Despite its rural setting, the shop has garnered quite a buzz thanks to its amazing collection of genuine non-leather, vegan apparel and a powerful commitment to ethical clothing practices, focusing on the well-being of our planet, our animals, and our selves.

Our first week of tour with CSS has been sooo fun! We are chasing their bus all over the west coast in our charcoal colored Dodge Caravan. This tour we have a drummer with us which is super duper exciting. Lee Free is our drummer, and he is playing a lot of the percussion samples from our record on live drums. We are super happy with the new texture it brings to the show. Blowtorch is at the sound helm again and we are just thrilled to have the family back together. (JD met a few cool vaginas in Portland OR @ The Wonder Ballroom!") Two people came up on stage so far. Read More
I've been reading the adorable book "My Mom Style Icon" by Piper Weiss lately and with each picture and every story, I become more and more fascinated. I love old photos and to hear the back stories is an extra plus. As I pass each photo, I can't help but think, "My mom and grandma should totally be in this!" I had heard of this awesome blog a while back, but always forgot to submit so I figure now is as good a time as any to show the world my favorite style icons: two ladies I like to call Mom and Grandma. My grandma, Lorenza, seemed to have an enviable collection of dresses. Read More
  There’s a corner of vintage wonders called Billy’s Antiques where a friend of mine sells some amazing jewelry at amazing prices. I once took a street style photo of a girl who works there sometimes, Jasmin Rodriguez, and have kept up with her blog, Vintage Vandalizm, ever since. I love that her style sort of blends rockabilly, pin up, and classic vintage into a pretty modern look.  She reminds me of an early Dita Von Teese in that way, but what I really admire about both ladies is the commitment to everyday style.
