Zohra Atash - the singer/songwriter behind the Brooklyn-band Azar Swan - has the coolest personal style we've seen in some time. With rock'n'roll, goth and hair metal influences, Zohra's style incorporates badass statement pieces like a leather harness or a hand-me-down scarf from her grandmother, always against plenty of black and gray. We talked style with Zohra for our "Fashion Nation" feature in the October/November issue of BUST magazine. Tell me about what you’re wearing. My friend made the top out of latex, which I got at a place where they sell PVC pipes. Read More

I tried for a very long time to convince myself that I didn’t want a single shred of kink in my life, and very nearly succeeded. Circumstances in my life also made it difficult to focus on anything like a relationship, never mind one that would involve kink. I don’t want a Story of O relationship, and I don’t want to rush into too much, too soon. I want to meet other kinky people, make friends, and find someone who can show me the ropes, so to speak.

The first time I saw Carrie Brownstein perform, her band, Sleater-Kinney, and my band, Sonic Youth, were both playing the 1997 Bumbershoot festival in Seattle.
