Modern technology is dope. We're all in touch with each other in ways previous generations could never imagine. Thanks to Facebook I have access to the daily happenings of literally every human being I have ever encountered.  Right now I could pull out my phone and video chat with my mother who lives across the country from me. That is some Jetson's level shit right there! Unfortunately, I can also pull out my phone at closing time and text my ex some poorly crafted sick burn or, even worse, desperate plea.

The Sundance Channel must have a degree in making educational yet totally captivating shows, unlike most enriching television which lulls me to premature slumber. Instead Sundance pumps out series like Big Ideas for a Small Planet and Green Porno with Isabella Rosellini, which are hysterical and make me feel a little bit smarter.

My one and only New Year’s resolution this year was to eat more kale, and for good reason. Crammed with fiber, vitamin A, and calcium, kale is such a nutritional powerhouse it should have been Popeye’s snack of choice instead of spinach. But I was having a tough time finding a way to prepare it that I actually enjoyed, until I stumbled on this recipe for raw, vegan, cheesy kale chips that fitness trainer Nathane Jackson of www.nathanejackson.com posted on his Facebook page. With Jackson’s kind permission, I’m reprinting his mega yum, super easy recipe here.

  “Most Singles Are Perfectly Content That Way, Study Finds,” touts a post on Time Magazine’s site. This information comes from Match.com's Singles in America survey, released last week:   According to the study, developed by Binghamton University and conducted for Match.com, 40% of respondents 21 years old and older are not sure they want to get married, 27% said a wedding is not in their future and just 34.5% said marriage was a must.

MNDR hasn't been in the spotlight much since the release of their E.P.E. EP in 2010, but that's all about to change. I didn't think I could like anything as much as last year's "Cut Me Out" (which I still blast in my headphones at least once a week), but new single "#1 in Heaven" is quickly climbing to the top of my most played list. It's an infectious electropop jam anchored by a head-bopping dance beat and Amanda Warner's sultry vocals. The video's great, too, thanks to trippy visuals and Warner's incredible lipstick choices (seriously, tell me where to buy it).

We're all starting a new diet at BUST. It's called the Ch Diet. You can only eat foods that start with a Ch: cheese, chocolate, chicken nuggets, chimichongas, chips, chili cheese tater tots, Chex Mix (bold party blend preferred but not required), chalupas, chowder, chorizo, Checkers fries. We think it's going to take the nation by storm. Just remember you heard it here first.  The BUST office is all a flutter today with excitement for the big cheese party tonight. We can't stop talking about how much we love cheese.

So this claims to be the official twitter feed of Cat Fancy Magazine. It takes about .03 seconds to realize this is a hilarious prank. Some intern at Cat Fancy is probably saying, "I told you we needed a twitter."  Here are screenshots of some of my faves. But seriously, it's all pitch purrfect!   This might even trump the cat who ran onto the field during Liverpool vs. Tottenham, my favorite cat-related internet story of the week.

Some of them are sweet, some of them are creepy, some of them sound like bad poetry. What else could I be talking about but the Missed Connections posts on Craigslist? If you haven’t been there…well, it’s pretty much a grab bag of stuff. A lot of it starts out cute, but turns out to actually be kind of sad.

  One of our fave photographers, Aliya Naumoff, is in the MTV Canada spotlight and we are lovin' it. You've definitely seen her work in the pages of BUST, including a classic portrait of  Kathleen Hanna for a past music issue. She has also done work with Rolling Stone, Nylon, Vice and The New York Times, including poignant portraits whose sales went to benefit victims of the Haitian earthquake.

Kimya Dawson is the queen of all things cute and uplifting. Her songs are the perfect remedy for a shitty day, even when she's singing about familiar insecurities or broken hearts. That girl just can't turn her charm off!  Anyone looking for their daily dose of cuteness doesn't need to search for sloth videos or sleepy puppies. Instead, have a look at the latest Kimya Dawson video, "Solid Strong," directed by Clyde Peterson, Forrest Baum, and Kimya herself.
