ON, IT, AT?

BY Web Intern in General

If you're a huge fan of Tegan and Sara like myself, you're most likely patiently awaiting their new record (only have until Oct. 27!) and the lengthy tour that is sure to follow. In the meantime, you can speculate how cute their new trio of books, On, It, At, is going to be and put aside money for the pre-sale order (which begins Sept. 28). The trio of books chronicles different time periods over the course of a year in the lives of two of my favorite ladies. ... Read More
I'm sure you all know by now but Patrick Swayze, 57, passed away last night after his 20-month battle with pancreatic cancer. Now, I am beyond bummed about this. Not only was Swayze a talented actor who would do anything for his craft, the way he carried himself after being diagnosed with the disease was commendable and the marking of a truly superb individual. I remember watching Dirty Dancing at a family gathering when I was a wee one and becoming wide eyed ... Read More
Taffeta and neon and spandex, oh my! As promised, the New York Couture Fashion Show blew the roof off Webster Hall this Saturday, and BUST was there to watch (like the proud sponsors we are!). The clothes were incredible, the crowd was HUGE, and the performance by L.A.'s Ultraviolet Sound was rad beyond reason. Hope some BUSTies got in on the OCD (obsessive compulsive dancing: see Ultraviolet Sound's sickest sensation of the night). If not: sad face. But ... Read More
It has been awhile since I busted out my crayons to beautify a coloring book, but with the release of The Indie Rock Coloring Book this month, I may have to dust off my trusty Crayolas. The book, whose collection of illustrations and activity pages where created by the talented Andy J. Miller, were inspired by some of today's most lovely indie rock bands (The Shins, Devendra Banhart, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, etc). If that alone doesn't peak your interest, know ... Read More

Amish Romance Novels?

BY Web Intern in General

Everyone knows the typical formula of a harlequin romance novel-man and woman meet, they are met with an obstacle they must overcome, a solution is found, they finally do the deed and live happily together for the rest of their lives. What happens when you throw the Amish community in the mix? Apparently a whole lot of swooning... Imagine pastoral settings, the simplicity of the Amish community and a forbidden love between a member and an outsider. Now, throw ... Read More

I can't say I'm a Mountain Dew drinker, but if you are, or just love artsy packaging (that's me!), you're in for a little surprise. The Dew just announced the forthcoming release of Green Label Art, Volume III, which is a series of aluminum bottles featuring custom designs from six amazing artists. The diverse set of artists include Pushead, Nathan Cabrera, Jeff McMillan, Stephan Bliss, UPSO, and Claw Money, who happens to be the first female artist to ... Read More

Hail Mary!

Mary Wollstonecraft, it looks like you'll be getting your own stamp, you lucky lady! The Royal Mail of the UK is releasing a set of stamps called Eminent Britons, which will be released October 8th. To refresh your memory, Wollstonecraft (1759-1797) was a pioneering feminist in many respects--she helped her sister Eliza escape an abusive marriage by keeping her hidden until a legal separation was arranged, established a school at Newington Green, asserted that ...
