Earlier today, BUST's own Emily Rems, managing editor and film fanatic, made an appearance (or at least her lovely voice did) on NPR's morning news program the Takeaway.  On today's program Emily and Newsday critic Rafer Guzman sit down with John Hockenberry and Celeste Headlee, and chew the fat about George Clooney's multi-faceted acting career, as well as his role in the recently released movie The American. Tune in here to hear Emily weigh in on what she thinks is the best side of Clooney and dazzle us with a bit of Golden Girls trivia. Read More
A disturbing New York Times article published this week brings to light a very scary reminder that the plight of feminism isn't over yet: poison gas attacks targeting all-girls schools in Afghanistan. According to an Afghan official, said attacks have been going on for two years, with two attacks occurring in the past week.   According to the article "The spokesman, Dr. Kargar Norughli, said his ministry and the World Health Organization had been testing the blood of victims in 10 mass sickenings and had confirmed the presence of toxic but not fatal levels of organophosphates.

Personal music libraries are like fingerprints. Each is unique and fascinating in it’s own special way. Some are more refined around the edges, and others just down right awful. Read More
Ima gotta admit–I think the world was a better place before this series of books and movies came out. OK, maybe I should limit it to the movies since I haven't read the books, and obviously that means just the first two since the hornet one is yet to arrive on our shores, but I can't imagine how augmenting my knowledge of this trilogy would change my mind. I was going to hold off on passing judgment until the third one came out, but with the the ABC News report this week that the film's distributor plans to send copies to rape crisis centers and college campuses, I couldn't wait.

Stayfree or Stay Away?

BY debbie in Feminism

Oh, Canada! We love that the ad world  is finally realizing that, yup, women have a sense of humor too. And with the Old Spice ads they surely have a winner. This Canadian Stayfree ad, which I'm sure it's creators hope will be a major viral video, is a virus, alright, but more like an STD. Read More

TheSquareJaw.com

BY Emilie Branch in Arts

  TheSquareJaw.com is a site devoted to capturing the male gaze. I founded the site because I felt that male beauty, realized by women, is sort of absent from the photography canon. I’m striving to capture men; specifically, the way they look at women. Bruce Weber is my ultimate hero—his pictures of men are always so beautiful, though I wonder how the subject’s gaze would alter if if there were an underlying attraction. I think you can see the connection between the photographer and the subject, especially in sexual terms. Other than that, the guys are all really hot. Read More
When people talk about sex it's usually in a very summer blockbuster sort of way. All ripped t-shirts and things throbbing and pulsating all over the place. It's always "the best I've ever had," or "the hottest I've ever had." What's left out is usually the most intimate parts, the little awkward details like those body fart noises that happen when two sweaty people mush up against each other, and how satisfying/painful the hood of a car can feel when you're slammed on top of it after it's been sitting in the driveway, baking in the sun for a few hours.

Kick September off right with a heaping helping of MEN. No, I’m not suggesting you drop trou and join the nearest orgy, but you can dance your pants off tonight at Pamona’s Glass House to JD Samson’s latest project. MEN is a Brooklyn-based art/performance collective fronted by Samson of the femme favorite Le Tigre, and have come to put that poli-sci degree of yours to good use. Read More
This summer I discovered my new favorite blog, ManRepeller.com. The site pokes fun at trends, which Leandra Medine (the blog’s creator) deems as “man repelling”. For example, you won’t get laid if you’re wearing drop crotch harem pants, or shoes that look like grizzly bear paws. Karl Lagerfeld isn’t looking out for your sex life. Unfortunately or fortunately (depending on how you look at it) for me, I cannot afford Chanel…and I have sex somewhat regularly. Read More
