Review: Antichrist

BY Jenni in General

Lars von Trier, the director who so famously tormented Bjork in Dancer in the Dark that she swore she'd quit acting forever, was booed and jeered at at Cannes for Antichrist. People even laughed at the private screening I attended with some of my fellow BUSTies. Antichrist has been censured as misogynist, and, to a lesser extent, as if somehow this is a lesser crime, pretentiously laughable. Read More

Hello Lovers

BY Web Intern in General

I am from Austin. I miss it a lot. This weekend I get a taste of home. The amazing Hello Lovers perform with a small orchestra in syncopation and moving images on four screens by Lydia Greer. Goes down in Brooklyn at Monkeytown on October 23rd, 24th and 25th. Hello Lovers is different from any band I've ever heard. And, like I said, I am from Austin...so that is saying something. The musicians range from classically trained pasts in fancy conservatories, to avant garde and experimental negro studies, to ad hoc improvisation. Read More

This Saturday, October 24th, the Trophy Bar is hosting the latest Score! swap sponsored by BUST. Bring old zombie makeup, Bob Ross wigs, Mr. T chains etc, and score some new threads for Hallow's eve. Exchange outfits with your friends, get new ideas from professional costume consultants, drink creepy-themed drinks, and dance to good tunes. Because why spend money on slutty cop outfits when you can spend it on alcohol or candy instead? Oh, and hurry up. RSVP to the upcoming BUST Score! at 3rd Ward on November 21st. Read More
Everyone should enter the ROCK THE JACKET contest from one of our coolest advertisers, Dollhouse. It is so easy. Friend them on Facebook, take a photo of yourself in your Dollhouse jacket, and show them how to wear it. A leather jacket goes with everything. A sweet, summer dress? Hells yeah. Badass jeans. Duh. Every girl needs at least one leather jacket. If you live in New York, you might need three. BUT, if you're an animal rights activist, like me, it is important to find vegan friendly, faux leather jackets. Read More
