Apparently the producer was interviewing over the phone, but it seems more like Greg Sestero was interviewing Tommy Wiseau. Or maybe it seems more like a painfully boring interview that you just cannot seem to stop watching. It's probably because Wiseau, who we've previously interviewed here at BUST, may or may not have lost his damn mind. After watching part one of the interview in it's entirety, I don't really know what I've learned, but I do know that Wiseau ... Read More
Dude-comedy maverick, Judd Apatow, recently announced he'll be producing a comedy by women. Bridesmaids is written by SNL's Kristen Wiig and The Groundling's Annie Mumolo and is a veritable who's-who of tv's comediennes; with a line-up featuring Maya Rudolph (SNL), Ellie Kemper (The Office), Rose Byrne (The Damages), Wendi McLendon-Covey (Reno 911!'s) and Melissa McCarthey (The Gilmore Girls), as the pack of zany gal-pal bridesmaids along for the wild wedding ...

So maybe he’s not a band per se, but Brooklyn-based producer DATALOG  and his new EP, Threads, is worth an alert. Threads is a hazy, warm blend of electronica, jazz, and world beats, all wrapped up in one kicked-back, noir-tinged package. Fans of everything from Flying Lotus to Massive Attack take note. Songs like “Sink Babies” offer subtle samples and thumps aplenty; the title track is a melancholy acid trip that demands ass shaking. Not ... Read More
As the violence escalates in the Egyptian revolution, it's no surprise that one of the videos posted on Facebook on January 18th by this young woman, Asmaa Mahfouz went viral and apparently inspired thousands to go down to Tahrir square on the 25th to protest. It's an incredibly brave and inspiring call to action by a young person who wants to make their country a better place. (Watch the video below) Not much is known about Asmaa, it's been reported that she is ... Read More
Today the White Stripes made the announcement on their site that they are calling it quits, something about setting the music free, no hard feelings etc. I really loved the White Stripes, some of the best concerts that I attended in this decade were played by them, but I'm not sad really. I've got the records and at least they won't get into any embarrassing Mick Jagger territory.  I will, however, miss Meg's drumming. This reminded me of a photo shoot and ... Read More

Partner violence and emotional abuse is one of those things that no one ever talks about or acknowledges. There’s so much shame surrounding the subject, and to this day, I am still surprised and confused when someone I know finds themselves in an abusive relationship. It baffles me when I find out that one of my smart, well-adjusted, and feminist-minded friends has been in an abusive relationship. Also, because emotional abuse is not visible, it’s often ...

BUST HQ is one of those places that's crawling with all kinds of new music. As I'm sort of a strange person with pretty particular taste, I don't often listen to a lot of it, but today I was forwarded the music of Arron Dean, and loved it.  Raised on a small farm in an area called Knoppieslaagte outside of Johannesburg, amid the country's political upheaval, Arron followed his muse stateside to play jazz in Boston. Disheartened by the general apathy people ... Read More
