What a week! Tube strikes, freezing temperatures, snow, student riots; yep last week in London got a little hectic. Time now then for a quick round up of just how rockin’ the Chistmas Craftacular in York Hall was last Sunday.   The busiest London Craftacular yet, York Hall was BUSTing at the seams as shoppers braved the unusually cold snap and queued round the block for the midday opening, complete with amazing tote bags from Prick Your Finger and Etsy ...

When I first saw Project 60/40 perform, I was floored. Four ladies so talented, creating a style of music so unique- I dare say it's unparalleled- made me want to know more about them right away. After some research and a coffee date with the performers themselves, I learned that they use their classical backgrounds to reinvent modern music, and vice-versa, breathing new life into old favorites and making contemporary tunes accessible to all generations. As they ... Read More
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 ...

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.   You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this ... Read More
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 ... Read More
  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. Unfortunately, many food blogs read more like Martha Stewart cookbooks than a home-grown type deal: Who knew so many people start off their days by delicately frosting several tiered cakes or make last-minute meals out of the cornucopia of farmer’s market fresh organic vegetables in the fridge they had just ...

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 ... Read More
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. ...

  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 ...
