If you've never listened to Hunx and His Punx you should probably get on that, like yesterday. Seth Bogart (Hunx himself) writes killer rock 'n' roll songs with the talented Shannon Shaw (of Shannon and the Clams) who wails her heart out like you wouldn't believe until you hear it IRL for yourself. Bogart likes to call it "hairdresser pop," or maybe "punk-pop" (not to be confused with pop-punk), and lately you might call it "street punk." (Mostly because their brand spankin' new album.)  Street Punk...
After pads and tampons were confiscated last week during an anti-abortion law hearing, I had enough sense to believe people were going to go bat-shit crazy over this latest Texas travesty. They did. But after MSNBC anchor Melissa Harris-Perry donned a pair of tampon earrings this weekend to prove a point, it’s no wonder we’re still sitting here, fighting the same damn fight over our own bodies. “What a nasty skank.” “The Left are psychotic.” “You’re a dumb bitch!” These are just a few of the comments left by...
So blogging about the current state of things can get one pretty down. There aren't a lot of laughs when you're researching rape statistics. So, needless to say, I needed a little laugh.

Okay, I can’t lie to you, BUSTies, despite the nonchalant title I am FREAKING OUT RIGHT NOW. You’ve probably already heard, but Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, wife of Prince William and flawless individual, just gave birth to the future heir of the throne. I mean, it's like, 4th or 5th in line (Elizabeth II is not letting go of that crown) but this is still REALLY EXCITING STUFF. Oh, and it's allegedly a boy. This is what I'm hearing. It's still breaking-ish news. Okay, I’m sure...
