(500) Days of Summer

BY Lisa in General

It's not very often the male and female leads in a movie are equally crush-worthy, making the sum of both parts totally off the swoon charts. Well, I got a sneak peek at (500) Days of Summer and lemme tell you what, it's hard to decide where to rest your eyes cause the cuteness between Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a constant battle. If Away We Go didn't satiate your uber-indie movie needs, this romantical dramedy absolutely will. It's sweet ... Read More

Mamma Mia!

BY Lisa in Music

    I'm a sucker for cool gals playing that good ol' indie folk rock so Mia Riddle's album, Tumble and Drag, gets a lotta play on my iTunes. Check her music out and if you're in NY, catch her and her band tomorrow night at one of my favorite Brooklyn venues, the Bell House. And if good jams weren't enough to bring you out, they'll be serving free Brooklyn lager from 7:30 - 8:30. Looks like Thursday night's in the ... Read More

Kristen Schaal on Sirius

BY Lisa in General

How much do I love Kristen Schaal? Let me count the ways. Nope, nevermind, that would take too long and High Five, her limited-run radio show on Sirius, is starting just about now. Tune in! Kristen and her creative partner Kurt Braunohler will be their usual hilarious selves, taking calls from listeners and just generally being awesome. Next week, July 1, is the last episode. Don't have Sirius? You can watch clips on their ... Read More
I love me some Kim Gordon. And on May 28 I can take my fandom to a whole new level. Urban Outfitters will be auctioning off some of Kim's own clothes (as in, they hung in her amazing closet and she wore them while doing awesome Kim Gordon-type things) on their Urban Renewal Vintage eBay store. Each piece (all by Daryl K) will come with an autographed tag so you can prove to your friends that the neon pants you're wearing really did once grace the ass of the queen ... Read More

Cute Band Alert

BY Lisa in Music

I got your new awesome album right here. Cryptacize hails from Oakland, CA (fans of Deerhoof will recognize guitarist Chris Cohen) and I've been jamming out to their new record, Mythomania, since it came out a couple weeks ago. Its melodies are addictive (like Nedelle Torrisi's vocals) and moments of endearing twee and weirdness shine through the slow-synth jams and catchy, rockin'-pop hooks. They're hittin' the road next week so click through to see if they're ... Read More

Justin Theroux is the hotness

BY Lisa in Style

I can't put a finger on what is so appealing about JT (certainly not his roles on SATC: a douchebag 20-something and a premature ejaculator?!?), but we've got mad love for him here at BUST HQ. And wearing these adorable glasses? Come on!! Now you can pay homage to our former cover boy by getting a pair of these 'Theroux' frames for yourself. They're exact replicas of ones he wore in Mulholland Dr. ... Read More

Lily + Jae's S/S lookbook

BY Lisa in Style

Lily + Jae's spring/summer collection is so freaking cute it kinda kills me that i don't own every single dress, jumper, and button-down in it. What kills me even more is its sunshine daydreams of a lookbook. What I wouldn't give for a lakeside retreat in a vintage trailer. Click here to see all the summerific images. Be sure to check out our interview with Lily + Jae's super cool, down-to-earth designer Jude Feller in the new ish and keep an eye on her site...I ... Read More
We heart the art of former BUST boy du jour Marcel Dzama. So when I found out he was co-directing the video for one of my fave new Department of Eagles songs, 'No One Does It Like You,' I couldn't wait to see his characters come to life. The result, which I was lucky enough to see premiered at MoMA last night, is a surreal war story set in Dzama-land, a strange battle of the sexes between civil war-type soldiers and ninja-terrorist ballerinas. There's also a ghost ... Read More

Sarah Silverman for Boy.

BY Lisa in General

    I love that former BUST cover gal and all-around hilarious lady Sarah Silverman is the star of Boy by Band of Outsiders new lookbook. I also love that in it, she gets down with the little old ladies while hamming it up at Canter's Deli. Now, if only I could afford something from the super cute line we'd be in ... Read More
