  When Solange Knowles posted a photo of her son in Halloween garb, she was met mostly with praise. Julesz posed with impressive steeze for an 11-year-old poise in an LL Cool J costume, leaning against a brick wall in a red track suit and Adidas. “Young Cool J too cool for ghosts and goblins,” she captioned the photo.  While the photo accumulated a deserved several thousand likes, it also inspired one troll to rear it’s head from the depths of the social media-verse. “So cute but...

As sci-fi geeks and unknowing civilians world over are aware, Star Trek has left a seismic cultural imprint. I thought that this cult classic was a thing of the past, an awesome heirloom available for nostalgia-induced Netflix streaming.  Not so fast! CBS Studios announced yesterday that a new season will be released in January of 2017. The series will feature new characters and new far-out civilizations, and as always will explore explosive contemporary themes.

The album debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 char, and won the duo a Grammy for Best Rap Album. The most notorious song on the album is arguably the one that won OutKast a Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group and was their...

Writer and BUST contributor Ayun Halliday took inspiration from nature, social media and dystopian stories and combined them all for her new play: Fawnbook.   Halliday says Fawnbook began when her improv group had the assignment to bring in social media posts.
