Bust: The Voice of the New Girl Order

Category: Issue 12, Reviews

Bust: The Voice of the New Girl Order It’s the 110-page fat issue of Bust, stomping all over body-image and stereotypes. Cute grrrl Janeane Garofalo’s smilin’ on the cover, and Bust just keeps getting impossibly juicier. There’s voluptuous body talk including “Hostile Makeover” by Kiley, “Take This Bra and Stuff It” by Nicki Miller, and […]

This is an excellent examination of contemporary artists and the modern art scene, attempting to explain the work in an intelligent way without over-conceptualizing. Issue #3 includes such interesting tidbits as a […]

The East Village Inky

The East Village Inky Ms. Halliday and her three-thumbed two-year old live in my old neighborhood, and everything she says about it is absolutely true. Her teenytiny apartment (where Stiv Bators used to live, apparently) is suddenly on the boutiquiest block in the area, and if anyone would know about neighborhood re-gentrification, it would be […]
