Babes and Bikes have had a long love affair. In the 1890’s, the cheap and easily assessable bicycle provided women with a feasible means for free transportation. Susan B. Anthony once said, "Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel...the picture of free, ... Read More
I have to say, I’ve never been all that into Annie. I never read the comic, lumping it together with Prince Valiant and other boring pseudo-historical bits. Never heard the radio show, except for following Ralphie’s slight obsession in A Christmas Story. Never entirely saw the musical/movie, finding the incessant, nasal optimism to stray a bit too far from my own sarcastic cynicism in the Vast Spectrum of Positivity. All in all, I found her irritating, ... Read More
Last week, Deadline.com announced that HBO is currently developing a comedy based on former Village Voice writer, Mara Altman’s memoir “Thanks for Coming: A Young Woman’s Quest For An Orgasm.”   As you can pretty much conclude from the title, the book follows Altman--an attractive a 26 year-old career woman living in New York who has never experienced The Big O--as she launches an entire investigation into getting ...

Izzy B, a 12-year-old rapper, tells it like it is: “You don’t need temporary friend—a pencil or a pen— always trying to leave when you’re really in need. You need a Sharpie in your life— one who’s permanent and true!” Besides being one of the coolest 12-year-olds, this little rapper’s sweet friendship message is backed up by the “dope” website FriendScents, which is sponsored by the tween clothing ...

I feel as though I should start with a declaimer:  Content in this blog may be unsuitable for children. Actually, if you’re a girl under the age of 18, please don’t continue reading. I don’t want to be responsible for exposing an entire generation of young woman to this. So just go do your homework or something.    It’s unclear whether this dance move originated in Brazilian nightclubs or their bedrooms, but I can only assume ... Read More
Going to see a band that you like, but don't know all that much about, can be a complex experience filled with intrigue and a roller coaster of emotions. Basically it's like this ... I accidentally made fun of one of the girls from Mountain Man right behind her head, not knowing she was in the band.  The other night my friend and I made our way to Knitting Factory in Brooklyn to see Mountain Man open for Junip. The band is an all girl, folky three-piece from ... Read More

Uke It To Me

BY Catie Colliton in Music Stuff

  The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra has folk-rocked our little socks off with this performance of Randy Newman’s 1977 hit “Short People” at the Michael Fowler Centre, Wellington, New Zealand. Nothing is better than a band with a ukulele, but this group has a man we love, Bret McKenzie from Flight of the Conchords, and BUST writer Gemma Gracewood. We love ukes!   You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this ... Read More
Oh, June weddings! Normally it would be good luck to have rain on your wedding day, but if you were wearing a gown made of toilet paper you might end up in your birthday suit.  AOL’s “StyleList” blog announced its contest winner for their Cheap Chic Weddings' 6th Annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress competition, and this dress by Galit Zeierman of Ramat Gan, Israel is for sure a winner. I’m not a fan of traditional wedding dresses, but ... Read More

Modern Lady!

BY Catie Colliton in Feminizzle

My dear old pal (I wish) Sarah Haskins of "Target Women" has passed the golden tampon on to "InfoMania" newcomer Erin Gibson. Her new segment "Modern Lady" is just as hilarious as Sarah's show, but with a little more burn. Where Sarah is going I do not know, but if you have some free time on your lunch break, watch some of her past videos. They are sure to make you feel some lady power, and possibly embarrass you if you happen to try and contain a laugh in a quiet ... Read More
