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

Before She Went Gaga

BY debbie in Eat Me

Long before Lady Gaga was lady gaga, she was just little old Stefani Germanotta, an NYU student at the Tisch School of the Arts with a mean set of pipes who knew how to tickle the ivories. This video makes me really curious how she went from this rather plain-Jane image to her current over-the-top one. I see the talent here, but no evidence whatsoever of what is to come. Where did that come from, then? Was it her idea? The suggestion of friends? A manager? ... 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

Light Her (Labia) Menorah?

BY debbie in TV

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
Picture this: You're walking alone late at night, minding your own business, when suddenly you realize you're being followed. What do you do? How about turning the corner and  pulling your skirt over your head? That's exactly what an inventor in Japan thinks women should do if they find themselves in these circumstances. Designer Aya Tsukioka's skirt can be worn by day, then turned into a (realistic?) vending-machine disguise when needed, simply by flipping ... 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
Ah, Internets! You so funny. In this wonderful video, Gwen Verdon's awesome Bob Fosse dance number, "Mexican Breakfast" (??)  from some time in the 70s is given subtitles to explain what each dance move is trying to say, and it's just one of those wonderful things you can watch over and over and over again. If this doesn't make you laugh on a crabby Monday morning, you should probably go see the doctor. Check out the vid after the jump, and enjoy.   You ... Read More

Her Name Is Reno

BY debbie in TV

On last night's Mad Men finale, there was talk of Betty Draper taking a quick trip to Reno. Why would she go there? What would she do there? Well, if you didn't see the episode, don't read the rest of this post, as it contains a spoiler, but if you did, you should read on, as we've got the inside scoop on Betty's little trip, as well as an entire article in our upcoming issue that can tide you over until the next season of Mad Men arrives...   Back in the ...
