After finding out this week that my very favorite show, Flight of the Conchords, was not coming back for a new season, I was heartbroken. But thanks to my pal Jodi, I've been alerted to a pair of dudes who hail not from New Zealand but from the Old Testament: a couple of members of my tribe (I'm guessing) who, with a bit more work, just might become contenders to be the next FOC. Check out some of their videos below, and Happy Hannukah y'all! You need to a ... Read More
What do you get for the woman who has everything -- including a multi-media publishing and television empire? How about some Mean Cards, or Guinness Beer Soap? That's what Racheal Ray blogger Evette Rios thought, so she trekked down from Rachael's lair to the BUST Holiday Craftacular in NYC a few weeks ago, and made the cutest video of her visit! If you've never been to a BUST Craftacular, this vid will give you a fantastic idea of what goes down, plus introduce ... Read More
Sigh. On their official website, Flight of the Conchord's beloved Brett Mckenzie today released the following statement: "We are today announcing that we won’t be returning for a 3rd season. We’re very proud of the two seasons we made and we like the way the show ended. We’d like to thank everyone who helped make the show and also everyone who watched it. While the characters Bret and Jemaine will no longer be around, the real Bret and Jemaine ... Read More

Help Homeless Puppies!

BY debbie in General

At this year's BUST Holiday Craftacular in NYC, there was more than just lots of crafty shopping to be had. We partnered with a number of charitable organizations to help them out, and on eof them, the Center for Animal Care and Control, brought along homeless puppies and kitties who needed adopting. The CACC is the city's only kill shelter, which is why we felt these animals needed our help more than any other. Luckily, a number of animals did fin their forever ... Read More
Andrea Garland's beauty products might not do exactly what it says on the tin, pill box or compact for that matter, but they're sure to give the likes of Benefit a run for their money! Tired of boring mass produced packaging, this vintage-loving aromatherapist decided to forgo the norm by choosing to fill all manner of tiny antique receptacles with her products instead. Each one different, the balms and lotions inside are lovingly made from organic and ethically ... Read More
I'm sure it was created with the best intentions.   I'm willing to give CBS the benefit of the doubt on that. But honestly, their new public service announcements suggesting that husbands give their wives the gift of a pap smear this holiday season are really.....ridiculous. Never mind the fact that if this is really what I were to receive from the man in my life as my Hanukkah gift I would be sorely disappointed, and  how is my guy supposed to ... Read More
In an earlier post today, I brought you the joy that is Gwen Verdon's dance number, Mexican Breakfast, with her various moves helpfully explained.  An astute reader pointed out that the dance moves looked suspicially like Beyonce's "Single Ladies" video dance moves (beloved by single babies around the world).  Now it turns out that not only are Beyonce's moves similar to Gwen's, they are directly  cribbed from her. Here are the two videos intercut ... Read More
Here at BUST, we've always been supportive of other feminists. Always. We don't hold a narrow view of what feminism means, and understand that there are different ways of being feminist. We helped promote Bitch magazine in it's earliest days. We've never trashed Ms. We've always  thought feministing.com  was a cool and important website. Alas, our other sisters in crime are not nearly as generous. In this weekend's New York Times, Jessica Valenti, editor ... Read More
