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. Read More

A Taste of the Lemon

BY Intern Arielle in TV

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. Read More
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. Read More

  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. Read More
If you've ever looked for a job on Craigslist or scanned the bulletin boards on your college campus, you’ve come across ads promising thousands of dollars for your tall, intelligent Jewish/Asian/Russian/etc. eggs. Have you ever wondered what happens to the young women who answer these ads? Are you one of the women who wanted to answer an ad but didn’t go through with the job? You might want to see Eggsploitation, a new documentary by Jennifer Lahl and The Center for Bioethics and Culture bent on exposing the abuses of the fertility industry. Read More

Dispatches From Sundance

BY Laurie in Movies

We sent our favorite photographer (and Laurie’s main squeeze) Michael Lavine to The Sundance Film Festival to check out the festival and report back to us on what’s good this year. _____________________________________________ While deeply entrenched in the insanity known as Sundance, I spend most of my time shuttling from theater to theater, waiting in line, watching movies and then talking to strangers about said movies while waiting in another line or standing uncomfortably close on another shuttle.

A mother-daughter dinner at a Brazilian restaurant provided the unexpected start of equal-parts-adorbs-and-kickass alternative pop duo Sleigh Bells.  Derek Miller and Alexis Krauss met in 2008 at Miss Favela in Brooklyn, where Miller was working as a waiter, and their partnership has been sensational ever since. Sleigh Bells will be releasing their second album Reign of Terror (Mom + Pop) on February 21. For a taste of what the Reign will be like, watch the video for the album's first single, "Comeback Kid.

In a little less than a year, Dylan Baldi--as well known for his precociousness as the thrashy, fun music he’s been producing for the past few years--has turned into a brooding, broken-hearted misanthrope. Not to say that I minded this: Attack on Memory, Cloud Nothings' third full-length release (out now on Carpark Records), is a fun listen from start to finish. But I did miss the old days a little by the end of opener “No Future/No Past,” a song that sounds ever-so-subtly like a Nirvana/Microphones mashup. Read More
