If you're a fan of absurd comedies that have no general direction, sets that look as though they were created by kids with a fondness for construction paper, somewhat darling puppets that can be a bit kooky, and a host who is eerily similar to Charlyne Yi, I think you'll appreciate the IFC-mini Food Party. Now, I haven't actually seen full episodes of this new comedy, which supposedly only run 10 or so minutes in length, but from what I've taken a gander at on the website, this looks like something I might start following.
As a child of the 80's, it was common for my friends and I to debate on who was cooler: Jem and the Holograms or Barbie and the Rockers. While it becomes a close tie when faced with the glittery makeup and neon clothing, the sugary sweet pop-rock tunes, and the explosive hairstyles, I'm thinking Jem may have outdone Barbie on one important factor: her voice. Jem's character was made up of not one, but two rocking ladies. Samantha Newark provided her speaking voice, and the ultra-cool Britta Phillips lent her golden pipes as Jem's singing voice.
Is your cat making too much noise all the time? Is your cat constantly stomping around driving you crazy? Is your cat clawing at your furniture? Think there's no answer? You're so stupid! There is!- Kitten Mittens!!! If you love, 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' on FX as much as we do, you might have caught this mock infomercial on Episode 8: Paddy's Pub-Home of the Original Kitten Mittens.
On last night's Mad Men finale, there was talk of Betty Draper taking a quick trip to Reno. Why would she go there? What would she do there? Well, if you didn't see the episode, don't read the rest of this post, as it contains a spoiler, but if you did, you should read on, as we've got the inside scoop on Betty's little trip, as well as an entire article in our upcoming issue that can tide you over until the next season of Mad Men arrives...   Back in the day, it was very difficult to get a divorce in most states. However, in Reno, the rules were different.
Photography is a timeless medium, with frozen moments captured in beauty and macabre. Planet Magazine shines a light on the devastating and the enrapturing work of Chris Jordan with his latest collection, "Midway." The series focuses on albatross birds in various states of decay, located in a remote sanctuary in the North Pacific.These post-mortem portraits are visceral and haunting with the suggest imagery - albatross chicks limply on the ground with the contents of their stomachs pouring out (plastic bottle caps, lighters, scraps, and other waste).
Oh Julian Casablancas, I am so incredibly happy/giddy/gaga that you have decided to take a break from The Strokes and give your sexy drawl a space of its own. Casablancas just released his first solo album last week and word on the street is that this new work, Phrazes For The Young, is pretty nifty. I've already listened to the first single, '11th Dimension' and yowzas, this song is my new obsession. I could never understand it when people could listen to a song on repeat for hours but now I finally get it.
The lady cop that is responsible for stopping the lunatic that shot and killed 13 people and wounded 30 others at Fort Hood on Thursday is being recognized as a fearless, fast acting heroine. Sgt. Kimberly Denise Munley is a 34-year-old mom of a 3 year old daughter and lives with her husband in Kileen, TX. According to the New York Times, she ran head-on into a dangerous situation, even while being fired at by the suspect. Luckily she was not seriously injured. She has been described by those who know her as a "ball of fire" and  real good cop.
Katie Stelmanis has the voice of an angel. Aside from having a Facebook fan page that says it in print, with hundreds of followers who agree, it's just true. It is. Katie and her band, which is Carmen Elle on guitar and back ground vocals, and Maya Postepski on drums, opened for Fucked Up at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple on Thursday and were able to turn a crowd of ruffians into instant new fans.  The setting for the show was dreamy in itself, as the Brooklyn Masonic Temple's interior and exterior looks like a place were Ren Faire inspired weddings would take place.
So what have you been up to for the past few years of your life? Did you happen to make a massively important documentary that explores the controversy over what the Bible has to say about homosexuality being a sin? NO? Well Chicago filmmaker Ky Dickens did.  For the past few years, Ky and Producer/PR lady Kristen Kaza traveled from city to small town, to armpit of the world in order to interview common folk and religious leaders from both the team gay and team 'you're going to hell' spectrum of this long running debate.
    Many of us here at Bust's HQ are enamored by Mad Men. The clothes! The 1960s decor! And let us not forget, the twisting and bold story lines. A few of us got to talking about television and our love for old television programs. Gilligan's Island came into the mix and we all decided - could our favorite ad execs be harpooned on an uncharted island? Some of these character comparisons are a little too close, if not funny. Is Mad Men a riff on Gilligan's Island? Judge for yourself...
