Several BUST ladies have already stopped by Brooklyn Charm and are currently bringing the bling to the office. I can't wait to get there Friday and make my own smashing necklace... The cool thing about this boutique is the DIY aspect obviously. Expect these major things at the opening party this Friday, March 26th: free classes, cocktails, BUST magazines, and a bunch of giveaways (you can enter to win all week just by buying something before the party) including a year's subscription to BUST! Duh I'll see you there. The necklaces are definitely recession chic and affordable. Read More
      You may know Toni Collette as Sheryl Hoover, the mom who keeps that whole van moving West in the indie comedy hit Little Miss Sunshine.  Or you may know her as Cameron Diaz’s sisterly keeper from In Her Shoes, or even as ABBA-enthusiast Muriel, her breakout role, in the Australian Muriel’s Wedding.  I know Toni Collette because I saw The Sixth Sense as a middle-schooler in 1999, and it haunted me most of the way through high school.

If you were up watching CSPAN last night while the House of Representatives were debating, then voting on, the latest health care reform bill, you might have seen the latest in a disturbing trend of interruptions by Republicans. Bart Stupak, a Democratic representative from the state of Michigan who came under fire for his amendment to the health care bill, was speaking about how he felt the bill wasn’t pro-life, and Republican Randy Neugebauer, a rep from Texas, yelled “baby killer!” at him.

Yesterday was pretty much amazing. Before even arriving in Austin for SXSW, I knew that I was going to be seeing Hole play at the Spin Magazine party being held at Stubb's BBQ. The organizers of the event sent laminate passes via Fedex, which was fancy and exciting enough, but then when I read "complimentary beverages provided by ..." my excitement level went through the top of my head. So even though excitement was for sure present, there was a certain amount of, oh, comedy involved in the idea of seeing Courtney Love play as Hole, with an entirely new band. Read More
