Makeover Drama

BY intern Amber in General

My theory proves true! Women athletes must adhere to standard lady laws in order to be accepted by the media and the man-fueled world of sports. With the encouragement of her new managers, Caster Semenya has been made over to look more feminine. YOU, a South African magazine, says they wanted to show a 'softer side' of the track star. They even went, as far as to call her new look 'an improvement'! WTF? What did they improve? Was Caster not perfect the way she ... Read More

It has been awhile since I busted out my crayons to beautify a coloring book, but with the release of The Indie Rock Coloring Book this month, I may have to dust off my trusty Crayolas. The book, whose collection of illustrations and activity pages where created by the talented Andy J. Miller, were inspired by some of today's most lovely indie rock bands (The Shins, Devendra Banhart, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, etc). If that alone doesn't peak your interest, know ... Read More

Raw Food Diet

BY Team Intern in General

Where do you turn this time of year, when it's mouth-wateringly close to holiday cookie season, but still too hot n' humid to turn on the oven? Take it easy on yourself (dangerously easy), and whip up a no-muss, no-fuss, and, most importantly, no-bake batch of raw cookie dough. That's right. I said it. Sugary, buttery, finger-lickin', uncooked cookie dough. And have no fear, germaphobes, the folks at Cupcake Project have figured out a recipe sans risky salmonella ... Read More

Drew Barrymore is rolling into the Bonaventure Skating Center in Farmington Hills, Michigan this Friday for a red-carpet bash to celebrate the upcoming premiere of her new movie Whip It! If BUST could fly the whole office to Detroit we'd totally be there, too. Anybody got a bus we can borrow? It's only a 12-hour drive... Bonaventure will only let the first 955 people in, so if you're in the area and plan to ... Read More

Pretty Funny

BY Team Intern in General

All y'all who read about SNL's two new lovely lady hires, Jenny Slate and Nasim Pedrad : rejoice with caution. SNL just leaked news that, as they welcome the newbies, they're canning current cast members Casey Wilson and Michaela Watkins. A good deal of pro-girl press is shaming (SNL head honcho) Lorne Michaels this morning, and pointing out the irresponsibility of dropping serious comedic talent, particularly in the case of Watkins' firing (which, in his Twitter ...
