  Calling all feminists, zinesters, or anyone at all! This year’s Feminist Zinefest will be taking place this Saturday (tomorrow), March 1st 2014, at Barnard College, from 1:00pm to 6:00pm. The event is free, open to the public, and there is no RSVP necessary, so you really don’t have an excuse not to go. Not only did we, Bust Magazine, get our start as a zine way back in 90’s, but also the folks showcasing at this event are awesome and their work remains indispensable to the...
Noise-pop fivesome Joanna Gruesome have been making a name for themselves with ease over the past few years and if you listen to their latest LP Weird Sister, you’ll know why. Based in Cardiff, Wales, the band takes you on a rollercoaster ride that’s like a Stefon Meyers club: it has everything.

McArdle has been involved with a few other projects prior to Joanna Gruesome, including...
For all my pen-pushers out there: N+1 Magazine and Faber and Faber have recently teamed up to bring you a stellar new resource, particularly for those in early-career crisis mode: MFA vs. NYC.

In the video below, an actually real and bona fide author (Maya Michaels) explains how she won the prestigious Featherton Award by inscribing her entire novel on...her fingertips. Take a look at the clip below for the outlandish results:      Consistently on-point, Reductress remains a brilliant source for faux-feminews -- we still consider it our very own Onion.  Other great "news items" from their day include "5 Ways To Play Dumb! (Inspired By Leading Anchorwomen)" and "Fun Ways...
  Turns out, February's lousy with unheralded holidays. Beyond Valentine's and Galentine's and Anna Howard Shaw Day, savvy citizens should note National Eating Disorder Awareness Week (happening right now; see our recent coverage), Black History Month (ditto) and the even lesser-known National Condom Awareness fest. Sponsored in part by the American Social Health Organization, Condom Month is dedicated to promoting safe sex. Because as we all oughta know by now, the proper use of protection prevents disease and pregnancy and all sorts of unpleasant surprises.  But here's...
