On May 1st, where did you eat lunch? It was Sunday, so I ate mine at home, in the living room in front of the television. But for a select group of people, an artful meal was served on the subway by the supper club and experimental culinary event host A Razor A Shiny Knife. On the L line diners were served six courses as the train moved from Manhattan to Williamsburg. At each stop more food was brought aboard, so the timing had to be perfect for the delivery of hot food, especially since the dishes served were no simple feats. Read More
In her current installation Knitting Is for Pus****, Polish artist Agata Oleksiak, (Olek) has taken craft to a new level. Previously having merely covered people, bikes, and cars, she has now covered an entire apartment with her intricately looped yarn and left no surface untouched by her crocheted creations. Much of the furniture featured is from Olek's own apartment, including her bed, which she apparently misses so much that she occasionally sleeps in the Gallery to feel at home. Read More
Here at BUST we love cooking shows, recipe blogs and generally anything food related, (see our Food issue out now) but honestly, this is THE BEST cooking demo EVER!! Meet the Vegan Black Metal chef as he demonstrates how to make Pad Thai, it's the best thing I've seen in a long while. Yes he sings the entire 14 minute demo, and head bangs while the "Heat of Satan" cooks the "glorious Pad Thai!" I hope Martha Stewart invites him on her show real soon. You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this video via Metalunderground. Read More

Growing up I loved reading about Laura Ingalls Wilder and her sisters Mary and Carrie as they moved across the country from Wisconsin to Kansas in the Little House series. I devoured the series, from Little House in the Big Woods to West From Home, and when I finished those I started reading Laura’s mother’s stories, Caroline’s books, and Laura’s daughter Rose’s books. After that I read Caroline’s mother Charlotte’s books. Read More

Review: Bridesmaids

BY Jenni in Arts

  The word being tossed around in relation to Kristen Wiig's star-making new comedy Bridesmaids is womance, and the portmanteau is somewhat apt but not entirely fair. Writers love a good pun or, better yet, a tidy way to label something, especially if it's a new sort of thing that we don't know quite how to handle, which, in a way, Bridesmaids is. Bridesmaids is not quite a chick flick, although it was written by Wiig and Annie Mumolo and boasts a femme-centric cast. There's some stuff about love, but it's definitely not a romcom. Read More

Happy Hump Day!
