If these lovely ladies look familiar it's probably because you've seen them grace the pages of BUST Magazine. Busy and Melissa were models in last year's Feb/March fashion story. They've just released their newest record, and it's pretty awesome. You can read BUST's glowing review in the latest issue. They also have a slew of shows coming up. Check out Telepathe's myspace for all the info... ...

If you haven't heard of the incredible book Handmade Nation by now, then you are certainly missing out! Written by Faythe Levine and Cortney Heimerl published back in October, the book has since become a documentary capturing the burgeoning craft and DIY movement across America. Currently there are screenings across the country (and other countries), and this week the flick is debuting in the big apple. The premiere screening on Thursday is completely sold out, but there are dates following on the 14th and 15th...

The BPA (Brighton Port Authority) I Think We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat (Southern Fried) The Brighton Port Authority is a moniker for Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim, and a horde of his fave featured artists. The BPA's fun and rhythm-heavy I Think We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat is clad with various forms of percussion, bass, synths, guitars, and some friendly distortion thrown in for good measure and it's as good as Cook's classic You've Come a Long Way, Baby. The track 'Superman'  is smoothly delivered...

Soul legend Etta James just made some scathing remarks from the stage at one of her shows about Beyonce Knowles, apparantly because Knowles had the audacity to sing James' signature song 'At Last' at the Obama inaugural ball . Listen to the clip of her rant above and let us know: Do you think her ire at Knowles (who incidentally just played James in the biopic Cadillac Records ) is justified? Or do you think she's just bitter because Barry didn't ask her to sing...

Is it just me, or did anyone else feel slightly violated by Bruce's crotch attack? Yes? No? Either way, as my friend Tito put it, getting BossCocked is totes the new Rick Roll! ...

Lux Interior, the great lead singer of perhaps the coolest punk band of all time, The Cramps,  died today of reported heart disease at age 62. Our hearts go out to his wife and bandmate, Poison ivy. The Cramps single handedly kept garage rock alive since they formed in 1972. He will be missed. Feast your eyes on this gem, The Cramps played a live show in a mental institution in California in 1978.So Amazing. ...

Raised in Craftivity, curated by Mara Elena Buszek, is a long-running show at the Wignall Museum at Chaffey College in California . It started up just last night with a curator's walk and reception. The exhibit features artists who work in typically craft-oriented media like ceramics, beadwork, woodwork and knitting. These are usually disdained as being 'feminine,' 'domestic' and 'amateur,' but today, this kind of craft media is being embraced and subverted. Some of the artists include Elaine Bradford, Orly Corgan, Carolyn Hopkins and the...

  Nikki Cook was one of many artists featured in the Tori Amos comic anthology Comic Book Tattoo, with a sharp little piece about a girl kickboxer. Gotta love girls kicking ass.   Her website is full of these gorgeous black-and-white pages, pieces of a story, and her MySpace page informs us that she's breaking hearts through the sequential arts--who can resist that? And she's doing a guest spot on an issue of one of my favorite monthly books, DMZ , spotlighting Zee, Vertigo comics' coolest street...

Our favorite stilt walking, fire twirling, aerial flying ladies are putting on not one, but TWO amazing performances this weekend! It's all happening at The House of Yes, their incredible performance space in Brooklyn where the ladies give all kinds of circus training classes. You probably remember Lady Circus from BUST's 15-Year Anniversary Party where they stole hearts and blew minds. You won't want to miss this show that will include live music, and a circus in the sky and the ground! Tickets are...
