The Pack A.D. is a Molotov cocktail mixture of every band you most likely already like. Canucks, Becky Black and Maya Miller play a mean blues on debut album Tintype (Mint) while at the same time fit comfortably within the 'new' revival of garage rock duos. Think The White Stripes only with two awesome ladies instead of just one meeting ...Shannon Curfman maybe? Black's voice is smoky yet bluesy, her influences off the band’s myspace include Billie Holiday ... Read More
 I kind of have an obsession with moustaches. Be it fake felt moustaches, Eugene Hutz's 'stache or jus the word itself. But this awesome company called Fuzzy Ink has a website featuring a plethora of tee shirts all adorned with moustaches! While purusing the site of the many 'stache adorned shirts (I know! But try to contain your excitement) I stumbled upon this awesome little tee shirt called the "Sunstache Kid." Ah! So great. Fuzzy Ink says it's a ... Read More

Not MJ's Neverland...

BY Team Intern in General

 Be sure to check out “I Won't Grow Up” an art exhibit opening tonight at Cheim & Reed in the Chelsea neighborhood in New York  embracing childhood and the child-like mentality. The pieces are said to conjure up feelings of nostalgia through various media and their creative freedom.  The lovely E.V. Day, who was featured in the October 2007 issue of BUST, will have her “Mummified Barbies” (which were also featured in the ... Read More

Get to The Gits!

BY Team Intern in Music

  In the 90s, The Gits were ready to break into the mainstream with their hardcore punk and blues sound when singer Mia Zapata was found murdered, a victim of rape and homicide. Now there's a documentary that highlights the band's formation, path to success, and tragic ending. When director Kerri O’Kane began making the movie, this crime was still unsolved. In the meantime, fans, friends and celebrities like Joan Jett and Nirvana helped raise money to ... Read More
  So 30% of this great country is non-white and yet non-white models are a rarity on the magazine racks, don't you think?  In response to this dearth of blackness in the fashion media, Steven Meisel, notable Vogue photogapher and Franca Sozzani, Italian Vogue editior have teamed up to put out an awesome concept for the upcoming Italian issue of Vogue.  Having a reputation for being more daring and more  about ideas than money – ...

   Summer is almost officially upon us. The time for drunken 3 am stumbles home, the time for random party hook ups, the time for putting ourselves in generally risky situations for no real reason. This website couldn't have come to my attention at a more perfect time. It's a self defense video geared toward women, especially those of us (like myself) with no martial arts training or even the slightest idea of how to defend themself. It's called ... Read More

Booty Call

BY Team Intern in General

  Nothing cramps your stilo more than a sad, floppy pair of calf-high boots. Propping them up against a wall or another boot rarely works, and wish as you might that folding the tops over won’t crease the fabric… well. Let’s just say it’s recently become kind of a sore spot. (RIP, my beautiful suede knee-highs, RIP).    Luckily, these cutie Booty Shapers have swooped in to save my soles. The inflatable supports slip ... Read More
Sometimes, it's good to return to your roots.I spent an enlightening day perusing the Barnard College Zine Library, curated by research librarian, activist and zinester Jenna Freedman (with the help of awesome zine intern Melissa).
