"Can I please sit down?" Check out the poster that graphic designer (and former BUST Art Director) Elizabeth Carey Smith from The Letter Office created based on her four month survey of riding the rails of the MTA while pregnant. Using graphs and pie charts, Smith tracked the number of seats offered on certain trains, breaking it down by gender, train line and time of day. It's not surprising that some trains were worse than others, and that out of 108 rides, she ... Read More
EXENE CERVENKA ‘THE EXCITEMENT OF MAYBE’ (Bloodshot Records) Exene Cervenka is always expressing herself in various artistic forms. She’s a published poet, collage artist, painter and of course what she’s most know for, making music and wring lyrics. This being first and foremost with X, the seminal L.A. Punk band (which she is a founding member of), as well as Alt Country group The Knitters, her other punk band Auntie Christ, another ... Read More
Oh how we've missed the sunny guitar pop stylings of Anna Waronker. The Los Angeles singer/songwriter, who issued her eponymous solo effort nearly a decade ago, after fronting that dog. for a number of years during the '90's alt-rock heyday, has returned with the richly reflective "California Fade." A host of longtime collaborators lend their talents, including her hubby [OFF! and Redd Kross bassist] Steven McDonald, sister-in-law [Go-Go's guitarist and her fellow ... Read More
As we continue to freeze our butts off up here in NYC while patiently awaiting Spring, we could not help but notice the fabulous looks that Rebecca Turbow has in the works for Fall 2011 – these fashion people live in the future! I love the gothy palette (hello gray and black, we're friends already) on these mod little numbers, and the model here is just too adorable. Photographed by BUST contributor Aliya Naumoff, I can't wait to get my hands on that cape, ... Read More
On their second full-length album, Reptilians (out on March 8th on Polyvinyl), Starfucker makes a solid attempt to gain notoriety for something other than their radio-unfriendly handle, but they mostly stay within familiar synth-heavy, dance-pop territory. First single “Julius” stands out for its glittery sound effects and infinitely hummable melody, while tracks like “Bury Us Alive” and “Astoria” are readymade for Friday nights ... Read More
I was extremely stoked to get an invitation to attend the Rodarte Fall 2011 Runway show today. Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the creative sisters behind the label presented a dreamy and inspirational collection that was very "prairie princess" inspired. I saw a lot of hand crafted embellishments, embroidered geometric patches and sweaters that totally looked like hand knit 1970's relics from a lucky thrift score. The palette was all earthy taupe's, pale blues and ... Read More

Model Fight Club

BY Laurie in Artsy

Everything's better when models do it, right? The latest in late night new York entertainment happenings are illegal fighting matches where male models duke it out for those "in the know" paying patrons. While some of the pretty boys are doing this for fun (getting punched in the face is apparently fun!) one of the exceptions is Charlie, a lanky 20 year old model who is actually training to enter the Golden Gloves. BUST contributor, Michelle Groskopf is making a ... Read More
Ah, the age old dilemma. You meet a cool dude, you want to be friends, but he just wants to,  you know, stick it in you! How Annoying!! Check out the new video by the Those Darlins, the twangy and trashy garage-punk gals from Tennessee that illustrates this problem in a delightfully un-delicate way. "Be Your Bro" is from their soon to be released album, Screws Get Loose (Oh Wow Dang- out on April 26).   You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view ... Read More
Oh man, I know this is old, but I needed to post this genius sketch by Kristen Schaal and John Stewart from last week. Kristen stops by the Daily Show to school Stewart on the "rainbow of rape's" and explains how the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act should cut funding for abortions unless they are a result of "forcible" rape. While I laughed out loud, it is sad to know that many people in this country would agree with her outrageous claims of "rapish" rape not ... Read More
Today the White Stripes made the announcement on their site that they are calling it quits, something about setting the music free, no hard feelings etc. I really loved the White Stripes, some of the best concerts that I attended in this decade were played by them, but I'm not sad really. I've got the records and at least they won't get into any embarrassing Mick Jagger territory.  I will, however, miss Meg's drumming. This reminded me of a photo shoot and ... Read More
