For the past couple months, I have lived and breathed the BUST Holiday Craftacular.  Helping our fearless leader, the adorable-blue-eyed-badass to my left, with vendor maps, spreadsheets, and everything she needs. During the back-end process, I came across many-a-crafter.  BUT I must say, one of the crafters I am most excited about is Lillian Crowe (table 127).  Her beautiful, brass bone and gut necklaces are my dream come true.  Not to get too ...

She's got the look

BY Lisa in Style File

I really love Tamera Ferro's style. If she seems familiar to you, that's cause we feature this fashionable San Franciscan in the Looks section of our current issue (click through for a peek), and her "Audrey Hepburn-meets-black forest-meets-gypsies" vibe is the dope show. My favorite part of her amazing outfit is definitely the handmade topper so you can imagine my gasp of excitement when I realized that she made it herself and actually SELLS them in her Etsy ...

Picture it... an all-drag cast reenacting two timeless Christmas episodes from our fav single retirees, The Golden Girls.  Like a midnight gossip sesh over a slice of cheesecake, it's almost too good to be true.   San Francisco's Trannyshack will put on the holiday homage to Miami's hottest foursome at Mama Calizo's Voice Factory (1519 Mission St.) on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturday nights between now and the 26th (excluding Christmas Eve and ...

I'm sure it was created with the best intentions.   I'm willing to give CBS the benefit of the doubt on that. But honestly, their new public service announcements suggesting that husbands give their wives the gift of a pap smear this holiday season are really.....ridiculous. Never mind the fact that if this is really what I were to receive from the man in my life as my Hanukkah gift I would be sorely disappointed, and  how is my guy supposed to ... Read More
In the age of DIY and off-beat tee shirts like Threadless, graphic shirts have taken on a whole new wave. It's not just about snark and sass - it's also about artistry. Enter Rotter and Friends with their line drawing, portraiture tee shirts. You make recognize a face or two on these snazzy tees - the shirts feature portraits of famous rockers, folkies, and hippies. Think Karen Dalton, Bettie Davis, Badfinger, Graham Nash, and Neil Young. So, what are you up to on ... Read More

Off the Wall Graffiti

BY Libby Zay in Artsy

From Austin to Austria, a dance troupe dressed in neon sweat-gear has been taking over the streets. Using their bodies as living sculptures, performers tag buildings by contorting themselves into bizarre formations and cramming into stairwells and doorways. The installations only last for fleeting moments -- basically, just long enough for a camera-phone wielding crowd to take notice and string along. The on-the-run art show is called "Bodies in Urban Spaces." ... Read More
OMG, This show looks hilarious, The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, produced by Channel 4 in the UK. After watching this clip, I'm hooked. Dream Team: Will Arnett, David Cross, Spike Jonez, and I spied Amber Tamblyn in this episode too! Looks like you can watch the entire episode here. If you like Arrested Development, 30 Rock,  The Office, Office Space etc, I think you'll enjoy. You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this video via ... Read More

Holiday Tunage

BY Lisa in Music Stuff

Bear with me while I dork out for a second. I love Christmas music. I do, I can’t help it. I think it started with my cherished New Kids on the Block, Merry Merry Christmas cassette (featuring Donnie Wahlberg’s seminal tune Funky, Funky Xmas), and these days come December 1st I’ve got A John Waters Christmas on repeat. So you can bet I was down to see The Brian Setzer Orchestra’s Christmas Rocks! Extravaganza at the Hammerstein Ballroom on ... Read More
AND because my throbbing blueballs hurt for this Sunday (the annual BUST Holiday Craftacular in NYC. DUH). These  blueballs can only be satisfied by sneaking online.  There, I look at a plethora of indie, handmade ware in the privacy of a dark bedroom.  Sweet relief. Until Sunday, at least, when I get to go all the way.  One of the crafters that really gets me going is Ink and Wit.  Her prints, notecards, and invitations are simply ... Read More
