Jaye P. Morgan’s video Cooking with Beefcake Too has resurfaced on the Internet and come up refreshingly relevant with today’s audiences of modern women. Who knew that women would love to watch half naked men learn to cook from an 80’s icon? Jaye P. Morgan herself guides her chiseled apprentices through the kitchen in this mash up of VHS clips from the 1987 cooking series. The bare bottomed “Beefcake Boys” are eight scantily clad and very agreeable men who blush in-between diligently following Jaye P’s instructions and flirting back. Read More

  I was at the Brooklyn Renegade Craft Fair two weeks ago and among the usual abundance of prints, jewelry and t-shirts, I saw something that made me stop in my tracks: Mimi Kirchner’s beautiful tattooed lady dolls.   Styled in the dress of circus performers or flappers, toile-print fabric makes up their arms and legs, marking their cloth bodies with detailed tattoos. Their clothing is carefully detailed, sewn from vintage fabrics and collected notions. One doll wears a red and yellow snake wrapped around her body, a pinstriped corset-style top, black shorts and red boots. Read More

  I'm so siked on the first single from  Cansei de Ser Sexy's third album La Liberacion! This band has been featured in BUST before, and they still GOT IT.

Tis' the time of the season for singing along to lovey-dovey tunes while sipping cold drinks and feeling carefree. Read More
The darkly dramatic video for the most recent single on Anna Calvi’s self-titled debut album was released today on Pitchfork. Watch it here.  Does this song remind anyone else of Bruce Springsteen? It’s even complete with talk of the devil and other themes I would have considered classic Americana. But this lovely Brit’s video, directed by Aoife McArdle, has a much more David Lynch feel than 'The Boss' has ever done. Read More
  At art school, nude dudes and ladies are a part of the curriculum. I’ve been drawing from unclothed figures for six years, and after seeing the rainbow of people that have modeled for my classes, I realized that anyone could be an art model. The only requirement was that one must be willing to show off all the goods on a pedestal under the scrutiny of ten or more artistically-trained students. This summer, I finally did it. Pants down, art on.As I approached the appointment, I grew a little hesitant. Read More
