It's our first day back in the BUST office in over a week-- we took a much-needed break after hustlin' to get our February/March issue ready for y'all, but we're back (did you miss us?), refreshed and ready to kick 2012's ass.
I don't usually make New Year's Resolutions, but I definitely set a few goals for the next 12 months, and one of them is to make more art-- weird, wonderful art. And who better to inspire me in all things weird and wonderful than Leslie Hall? We love this lady-- her sparkly gemstone sweaters have graced the pages of BUST before, and in our next issue, we'll tell you what she's been up to lately (it's pretty cool, of course). Her band, Leslie and the LYs, also just released a new album, Destination Friendship, which will likely find a home on my "Pre-dancing Dancing" playlist between Gravy Train!!! and Robyn. The gal has more glitter on her left boob than an entire New Year's Eve party, and is busy, BUSTy, and more precious than gold (stretchpants).
So if you've hit a lull in your seasonal knitting and need some motivation and a laugh, here's one of Leslie's classic music videos, in which she raps the praises of one of our favorite pastimes here at BUST-- crafting:
We'd get together and share supplies with her any day.
