Bill Cunningham New York is a wonderful documentary directed by Richard Press that explores the idiosyncratic street photographer, Bill Cunningham. The camera follows the octogenarian around on his bicycle as he zooms in and out of traffic, and as he stops frequently to shoot interesting looking fashions on the streets. He’s been working as a street shooter for the New York Times since 1978. Ever since I can remember, I’ve loved looking at his pages in the Times, and it’s always a thrill to see him in his ubiquitous blue jacket.

While I can't actually decide how I feel about Charlie Sheen's recent public appearances, I think we can all agree that he's given us some pretty notable quotables in interviews. Subversive Cross Stitch, friends of BUST, have turned some of his lines into darling-looking little cross stitch patterns, which you can check out below and buy online here! I think this counts as winning.

It's not exactly the kind of summer camp where you roast marshmallows and tell ghost stories, but instead you can stomp around New York City with other feminists (like yourself) and get involved with all things feminist! Registration is now open for  Feminist Summer Camp, which might be similar to Camp Anawanna (without your panties on a flagpole) and is a great opportunity to learn different strategies and approaches to feminist organizing within NYC.

  Coral Charles-Dunne, 91, of Birmingham has an interesting and educational hobby. She spends up to six hours a day knitting breasts of all shapes and sizes to aid in breastfeeding instruction. The knitted breasts are used by expectant mothers to learn various breast feeding techniques. She was initially approached by breastfeeding network volunteer, Bev Dunn, and has been knitting breasts ever since! "I've knitted stacks of stuff for charity, like pull overs, scarves and hats for orphans in Romania,” she says, “Though this is definitely the most unusual thing I've done.

After over a year of interning at BUST, I am finally bowing out. One of my favorite things about this internship has been compiling all the cute things on the internet to bring to you, the awesome blog readers. So, for my last day, I figured I'd post my own two furry felines, Nip (on the right in the picture up there) and Scout (on the left).

Photographer Danielle Levitt, (a former BUST contributor) completed a photo shoot "Roll Play" for the high fashion mag,  S Magazine. The shoot features plus-sized women in all their erotic glory. What I love about the shoot is that the women are in traditional erotic poses; their bodies simultaneously sexualized, glorified, and often complimented by food. Food is a touchy issue for any women in our size-obsessed and calorie counting culture, but big women especially are shamed when eating in public.

The premise of Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke’s latest supernatural-teen-girl drama, opening tomorrow, was so delicious and dark, it seemed destined for success.

I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’ve been reading a lot about breasts lately. Not only does public breastfeeding cause an uproar, but resources to help these women are being thrown under the bus too! And seemingly, West 70th, between Broadway and Columbus, the Upper Breast Side, can be considered a mecca for breastfeeding mothers. Owner, Felina Rakowski-Gallagher opened in hopes of providing a space for women that would make breastfeeding easier in New York City.
