HOLY CRAP LITTER SF! No wonder everyone's all a-titter about this San Francisco-based accessories line + store--anyone with a penchant for draping gold chains over anything that'll stand still long enough to hold them (ahem, me, ahem) is destined to fall truly, madly, deeply for these rad girls, their ultra-rad jewelry and just as ultra-rad blog. From slinky chain garters to MJ-reminiscent shoulder pieces to head, hair and even shoe jewelry, Litter SF is ... Read More
Get this: a specis of Amazonian ants is saying 'no thanks' to men and sex for life. That's right, the rare species, known as Mycocepurus smithii, have actually evolved beyond the need for males in their population! The ants reproduce asexually by cloning themselves, and each ant population is an exact replica of the queen. Anna Himler , the biologist from the University of Arizona who led the research on the ants, explained that there are advantages to the ... Read More
Omg, you guys, have you heard about how much straight dudes love it when girls in knee socks kiss each other? And get all pushy and slick in a pool together with blood all over their prom dresses? And look deeply into the camera while moaning 'you want it?' and unzipping their sweatshirts oh-so-slowly? Well, someone in charge of marketing Diablo Cody's new cheerleader-turns-into-mass-cannibalistic-man-killer flick sure has. Trailer NSFW. Here at BUST we have a ... Read More
 Journalist Gbemisola Olujobi asks of cosmetic genital surgery, in her recent essay titled 'Designer Vaginas' : 'what are labiaplasty and clitoral hood reduction if not female circumcision?' Well, damn. I never had made a connection before between the increasing trend for women in Euro-American countries to get procedures to make themselves more 'neat, clean, and tidy' and the not-dissimilar procedures performed on infants in many African countries--and ...

The Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Competition wasn't the only weiner fest in town this holiday weekend. Minneapolis' Star Tribune took it there by holding a hot dog dressing contest to see who could costume a hot dog in the wackiest ways. This one is my personal favorite, but it somehow got robbed of a prize. -Celeste Photo courtesy of Star ... Read More

Virtual Book Club

BY Web Intern in General

I'll be the first to admit my nerdiness. One of my favorite things in the world is talking about books, so naturally I am a big book club fan. Unfortunately, my favorite book club members keep having the audacity to live in different places than me and I'm tired of it! Well, now we finally have a solution: Book Glutton. This wonderfully named site gives people the opportunity to read books online together while recording public comments on them and discussing them ... Read More
London. Heatwave! Well, without trying to jinx our recent run of sunshine, come the August London Summer Craftacular we don't want punters overheating or experiencing any kind of shopping meltdown. So, we couldn't think of a better way to beat the heat and keep stylishly refreshed than with a vintage tea party. By the way, all you crafters can STILL apply! The deadline is July 13th and fast approaching. Coming courtesy of London's queen of the kitchy charm ... Read More
Hasidic hot pants, black gayby's, extreme dildo jousts, anal bleaching, these are just a few of the outrageous jokes in Sasha Baron Cohen's new Bruno flick. While the unofficial title, 'Delicious Journeys Through America For The Purpose Of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T- shirt,' explains alot, the very Borat like story line is most successful at pointing out how stupid people can be. I laughed a ... Read More
Take two cups of 'Pee Wee's Big Adventure,' 1/2 cup of Rachael Ray, a heaping tablespoon of 'H.R. Pufnstuf' and 5 tabs of acid--then stir frantically. The result? IFC's new show, 'Food Party,' which is hosted by the irrepressible, bat-shit crazy (in the best way) Thu Tran. Her gonzo cooking class is filled with a cast of degenerate puppets who float around her cardboard sets, helping assemble sometimes-inedible masterpieces. It started as a series of web shorts ...

Growing up in North Carolina suburbia, I was no stranger to a full blown Halloween growing up. When I was in elementary school, the kid to adult ratio in my neighborhood was around 8 to 1, and come Halloween we ran things. Candy was power and the best part of the night was spreading out your winnings on the carpet after a long night and arranging trades before passing out drained from a sugar ... Read More
