Dear Brooklynite BUSTees: If you find yourself in trouble with cops in the future, just blame it on your seductive hipster boyfriend! Works like a charm.    Sophia Anderson, former Bushwick resident, almost took the blame when her ex-boyfriend, Daniel Sajewski, drunk-drove his parents’ Mercedes into a house in Long Island. She has since been “conditionally dismissed” of charges, and is on probation for six months. Her lawyer, John ... Read More
Ellen Lindner with Strumpet 2 at Hypothetical Island  It was a cold and windy night when I went over to cartoonist Ellen Lindner’s studio, located in a building called Hypothetical Island in Brooklyn, NY. Lindner wrote and illustrated the excellent graphic novel Undertow, and edits the international all-women’s comics anthology The Strumpet. These are all books I enjoy and would recommend, for the record. Ellen is a long-time ... Read More

Jewelry designer Melissa Cohen found her calling after taking metalsmithing classes with her crafty friends in Atlanta, GA. Over the next few years, she made the move to Brooklyn, NY and is now making a living off of her twee-yet-tough trinkets. How inspiring! Metal Sugar jewelry ranges from metal-cast edibles (like the Twizzler cuff pictured above) to petite animals to sassy stamped nameplates, sprinkled with a healthy dose of teensy diamonds. They mix with ... Read More

Artist and designer Mike Perry opted to celebrate the release of his monograph Wondering Around Wandering in a non-traditional way: instead of a standard launch party, Perry created a pop-up exhibition of the same name in his Brooklyn neighborhood. The warehouse-turned-gallery eventually gained a new use as a community art space, playing host to pumpkin-painting parties, school groups, art workshops, and performances. As with all good things, Wondering Around ... Read More

Shilpa Ray, of the really awesome Brooklyn blues-punk band Shilpa Ray and Her Happy Hookers, commented on the red hot issue of reproductive rights in her new music video for the song ... Read More
It's Election Day! And everyone is really, really tense. I'm no exception: just the other day, an acquaintance mentioned that she really doesn't care who wins, and instead of engaging said person in thoughtful dialogue, I yelled ROE VERSUS WADE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD and burst into tears. So ANYWAY! Supreme Crafty Lady Callie discovered this gem yesterday and it had us all ROFLcoptering around the office. I don't know how to explain it, and to be honest, I don't even ... Read More
