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

Smell Pretty!

I don't know about you, but I'm always looking for a cool, different scent to make me smell pretty, and especially after reading the latest issue of Bust, I've even considered making my own.  But now I don't have to!  Lollibomb Beauty is a "one chick indie business" that creates pretty fancy sounding scents.  TOBACCO ROAD, for instance, is made with fresh pressed tobacco leaves, mandarin, bergamot, and Italian neroli. I personally can not wait to ... Read More

There’s definitely a dearth of women filmmakers. So when you know a film comes out created by women, you know it’s special.  Before Tomorrow is one of these films. It’s written & Directed by Marie-Hélène Cousineau and Madeline Piujuq Ivalu. But not only is it made by Inuit women’s video collective Arnait Video Productions, it tells the tale of a relationship not often portrayed in film: the strong bond between a ... Read More

Their posters, which focus on the injustices women face in the art world and beyond, always manage to ... Read More
