...the moment we've all been waiting for. After a months-well, actually years!-long debate, today is (finally) the day for closing arguments in the Prop 8 trial. According to NPR, this decision could be made in a such a way that could (hopefully) roadblock potential future anti-gay-marriage laws, or it could affect only states where "same-sex couples already have broad legal rights, but can't get married." (I'm sorry, is my bias showing?) Hope and pray to whatever ... Read More
If you have the afternoon off tomorrow, or work weird hours like I do, consider dropping by 92Y Tribeca for In the Fullness of Time:  Women Writers on Life After 50.  The downtown cultural center will host a panel of five highly influential female writers, in a discussion of "what it means to grow older as a woman in our world."  The writers attending made first made noise in the 1970s, introduced new vocabulary, had a hand in the development of the ...

Tomorrow, June 16th, our own BUST-y darling Emily Rems will be appearing on local internet radio show, "Rew and Who?" This segment of the show, entitled "Andy Warhol's 15 Minutes of Fame," runs from 4-6, but you can catch Ms. Rems promptly at 5:15. "...15 Minutes..." is a "quirky, raw internet show featuring 'rizing starz and living legendz' [of which Ms. Rems is certainly the latter] in and passing through NYC...Oprah meets the Lower East Side..." BUST yer way ... Read More
Rasputina Sister Kinderhook (Filthy Bonnet) Perhaps no artist alive embodies the creaky, creepy, ornately detailed steampunk aesthetic more than Rasputina’s Melora Creager. Instantly recognizable on stage in her bloomers, petticoats, and vintage corsetry, Creager has been creating compelling cello-fueled art rock since the early ’90s, with help from a rotating cast of supporting cellists and drummers. Her current lineup, appearing on Rasputina’s ... Read More
Babes and Bikes have had a long love affair. In the 1890’s, the cheap and easily assessable bicycle provided women with a feasible means for free transportation. Susan B. Anthony once said, "Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel...the picture of free, ... Read More
I have to say, I’ve never been all that into Annie. I never read the comic, lumping it together with Prince Valiant and other boring pseudo-historical bits. Never heard the radio show, except for following Ralphie’s slight obsession in A Christmas Story. Never entirely saw the musical/movie, finding the incessant, nasal optimism to stray a bit too far from my own sarcastic cynicism in the Vast Spectrum of Positivity. All in all, I found her irritating, ... Read More

Izzy B, a 12-year-old rapper, tells it like it is: “You don’t need temporary friend—a pencil or a pen— always trying to leave when you’re really in need. You need a Sharpie in your life— one who’s permanent and true!” Besides being one of the coolest 12-year-olds, this little rapper’s sweet friendship message is backed up by the “dope” website FriendScents, which is sponsored by the tween clothing ...

  I’ve been writing about my experience with giving up sugar and have been thanked, admired, and smacked down for sharing. Here’s the deal: I write my life. I don’t judge anyone else’s. Everyone has their own paths, their own relationships with their bodies, their own points of view, their own comfort zones. Sometimes hearing about what either people have gone through helps. It helps me knowing I’m not alone when I’m ... Read More
