Ever wanted to do a boudoir photo shoot but didn’t go through with it because of time, money, or an unwillingness to disrobe in front of the lens? AI avatars can give you the opportunity to be an erotic model—while still in your pj’s. DIY fantasy art is easy to make: All you need is 10 or more photos of yourself, and not even the best ones in your phone. Especially cool if you want to see yourself in a new light, AI products can generate avatars that are often as sexy as they are unexpected.  Plenty of free or low-fee photo apps offer users the ability to change looks with their artifici ..read more

When I discovered a rogue milkweed plant in the yard of my new home, I quickly realized it was an egg-laying hot spot for monarch butterflies. And when the caterpillars that hatched kept getting snatched up by garden ghoulies, my partner and I set out to save them. The monarch population has dropped like crazy in the last few decades, which is a huge bummer since the butterflies are devastatingly beautiful and crucial pollinators, boosting all kinds of ecosystems on their transcontinental migration. Here’s how to create a monarch-friendly habitat yourself, where you’ll get to witness all the ..read more

This Part Is Silent: A Life Between Cultures: A BUST Review
BUST Magazine
by Robyn Smith
6d ago
“You concede you can’t change the system from within, but you propose you can change relative positions,” writes SJ Kim in This Part Is Silent. “You propose you can make the important parts of yourself indelible.” This essay collection explores displacement and loss (it rips your heart out and stomps on it), creativity and change (it puts your heart back together), and institutional power and progress (your heart is stronger for the experience). Born in Korea and raised in North Carolina, Kim grew up around her parents’ ice cream shop. Her mother was frugal about everything save for books, and ..read more

Most of us stumble through adolescence like we’re trying to solve the mystery of ourselves.

Xochitl Gonzalez’s sophomore novel is a sweeping story that swings between the ’80s and ’90s and travels from Cuba to New York to Spain and everywhere in between. Artist Anita de Monte is on the rise when she’s found dead in New York City. And just like that, her renown is buried with her. That is, until over a decade later, when Brown University student Raquel Toro starts working on her final thesis. Behind her examination of another artist lies Anita de Monte’s forgotten legacy. But before she can reveal the full and beautiful extent of de Monte’s work, she must first confront the unsettling ..read more

Helena Hallberg’s debut album, Epithet, seamlessly combines jazz, folk, and pop sounds with refreshing results. There’s an eclectic mix of upbeat numbers (“The Day I Found the Moon,” “Your Side of the Pillow”), ballads (“Heaven and Hell,” “Mastermind”) and a great dance song (“Surprisingly Disco”) that goes straight to your feet with its way-cool groove. Hallberg’s vocal range is reminiscent of early Emmylou Harris and Joni Mitchell. Her writing is both thought-provoking and witty, with lyrics that focus on empowering oneself and others.

Where My Sluts At? Check Out The New Book Sluts: Anthology
BUST Magazine
by Adrienne Urbanski

Sluts: Anthology is the first release from writer Michelle Tea’s highly anticipated publishing company, DOPAMINE Press. This anthology of essays, also edited by Tea, delves into what it means to be sexually promiscuous in current American culture, with each writer exploring a different bent.

The Jesus and Mary Chain Is Back With Glasgow Eyes
BUST Magazine
by Erin Wolf
2w ago
Scottish rockers The Jesus and Mary Chain have been jamming à la malcontent for 40 years with no intention of languishing, although the duo’s newest album, Glasgow Eyes, may have fans sniffing around for a swan song. (It’s never clear, and that’s part of the fun). With its signature slinky, scuzzy, propulsive rock that revels in the rebellious, J.A.M.C. hits musical corners both experimental and electronic while hazily howling at the altar of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll. Glasgow Eyes brings no surprises, but it does pose the question of what to expect after the big four-o.  Image Via F ..read more
