I have kind of a weird relationship with makeup. As a kid I hated it because my mom made me an enabler to her Macy’s makeup counter addiction: I’d fidget for what seemed like hours while a woman in a white lab coat paid what sounded like empty compliments to my mother’s skin as she applied "eyebrow gel" or something equally unnecessary-seeming. I remained completely disinterested in wearing it myself until two years ago, when I discovered the boundless world of Youtube makeup tutorial videos.

If you're a vinylphile, you know how tempting those records in the $1 bin can be. The thing that sucks, though, is that they're usually so cheap for a reason: either everybody already has that Engelbert Humperdinck album, or they're in pretty rough shape. I've picked up many a sweet gem only to find that it was almost unlistenable on my turntable.  The only place I want snaps, crackles, and pops is in my cereal, dammit!  Luckily, there is a solution-- and even if you're not a record collector, it's kind of fun to watch.

You’re probably familiar with Kickstarter, a website that helps people with plans get the funding they need to make their dreams come true. Kickstarter is a testament to the Internet’s capacity for good—complete strangers can donate money to the projects they believe in, and many of the artists, filmmakers, musicians, startup charities, roller derby teams, and various other visionaries can contribute to culture. It’s kind of like Ebay meets Pay It Forward, minus the part where the precocious kid from The Sixth Sense gets stabbed (spoiler alert) and with a lot more urban farming.

Voice-of-my-generation Lena Dunham, the creator/star of the relatable flick Tiny Furniture, has something new to be proud of. She wrote and produced the upcoming HBO television series, Girls, set to premiere April 15, 2012. Dunham explained that she was simply writing what she knows. “I felt like there wasn’t a pop culture mirror reflecting girls my age experiencing the trails and tribulation of being female that this specific time.

Much like Flavor Flav, I enjoy a large “statement” necklace, so I plotzed when I saw Young Frankk’s brass chokers, which resemble giant metal collars. You can special-order them by contacting her through her Etsy store ($78, including shipping in the U.S.), where you can also find a selection of other ridiculously cute pieces. I got mine yesterday, and I’m already planning on never taking it off: The mastermind behind Young Frankk is Christine Young, a former BUST intern and an all-around rad designer and artist. Check her out on Etsy, or peep her artwork here.

As everyone and their mom knows by now, the "Shit Girls Say" series started an internet revolution when a dude posing as a lady made a video of all the ridiculous and hilarious things girls (allegedly) say. Ever since the first episode went viral, there have been countless shiz-talking adaptations, with new videos popping up all over the place. Just when you thought the trend had finally been laid to rest, NBC decided to release their very own "Shit Liz Lemon Says", a short compilation of the best things to ever come out of the mouth of the beloved she-geek.

Please put on a helmet before watching this video, because your head is in danger of exploding. Also, this is not so much a watching video as it is a listening video. Okay, ready? Dig this adorabuhls dormouse. He's hibernating so hard right now that he doesn't even wake up when being held in someone's hand. And he's just snoring the day away. [video:http://www.youtube.

I probably shouldn’t appreciate stories about girls punching guys. I mean, it’s wrong to commit violence against anyone, right? I shouldn’t endorse this sort of thing. But it brings a little warmth to my heart to hear about someone who proves that no matter what their age, size, or level of "femininity," women are definitely capable of defending themselves when they’re being attacked or harassed. This morning as I was watching the news over breakfast, this headline caught my eye: Long Island Girl Punches Man Who Grabs Her At Bus Stop.

  Apparently no one really knows why women seem to have a harder time getting into the mathematical and scientific fields-- but University of Missouri researcher David Geary and his University of Leeds colleague Gijsbert Stoet want to find out. The University of Missouri reports that they're trying to get to understand the gender gap-- and correct it for the future.
