Love Is In The Air

BY Web Intern in General

So my sister, my one and only sister, is getting married this summer. In my quest to find a great gift, and helping her out with all the planning, I've come across some pretty awesome wedding-related goodies. If any California based BUSTies are also planning to tie the knot, check out photographer Max Wanger. His engagement photos for 'Joanna and Alex' and 'Grace and Dominic' are exceptionally adorable. I love the balloon and candy themes! It's just too bad he's ... Read More
Remember this album? Kathleen Hanna's side project in between Bikini Kill and Le Tigre totally ruled my high school world. My favorite track was totally 'Stay Monkey' I still think of it every time I eat cold coconut ice cream. Re-listen to the entire album ... Read More
It seems the world has hit a new low when it comes to women and body image. Fitness First, a chain of gyms in the Netherlands, launched a new ad campaign -- they rigged a scale up to the benches in bus stops so that when someone sits down it displays their weight in big red numbers. The display is right above their logo, of course, so that as soon as someone is appalled by the number they know exactly where to go to change that. Enough is enough! Just last week, ... Read More
The world seems a bit too harsh for us lately, what with the news filled with the troubling economy plus tragic celebrity deaths. But sometimes sadness can result in beauty. The below video pretty much sums up our feelings today. Bonus points to anyone who can tell us where in NYC this looks like it was ... Read More
So, Austin is nuts. Not only is SXSW music madness perfectly suited to this a very cool, weird, and musical city, it was a breezy 75 degrees, just delightful for wandering venue to venue to sample BBQ, beer, and bands. Totally a way I can happily spend my day. It's predictably hard to get into good, free shows, because of lines and crowds. After getting my bearings on the venue-packed main drag, 6th street, I was bummed to see an epic line for the Paste Magazine ... Read More
BUST has landed in the middle of SXSW! After departing from Philadelphia  at 6:30 am, and with a two hour delay in Houston, we have finally arrived in Austin! Needless to say, Southwest Airlines was not flying the friendliest  skies today, but all is well, and both yours truly, BUST's Associate Music Editor, and Marketing gal Susan Juvet, are here and ready to fill you in on our rock 'n roll cowgirl adventures.    In true SXSW fashion, I'm ...

Away We Go trailer

BY Lisa in General

There are so many awesome things about this movie I don't even know where to start. But here goes. The screenplay is by amazing author Vendela Vida and her equally rad hubby Dave Eggers. Maya Rudolph as a leading lady! John Krasinski. With a beard. Wearing nerdy glasses. Hot. Allison Janney, Catherine O'Hara, and Maggie Gyllenhaal top the supporting cast. And it's directed by Sam Mendes, but looks like a sweet, poignant movie with plenty of laughs (unlike the ... Read More

Is there anything better than cute boys arguing about music--in ... Read More
LOOK AT THESE FREAKIN HUMANOID FISH!!! These ladies are the product of one very inbred pond in South Korea, they are the last of their kind because no male-equivalent exists. If you need to know more than that, check out Weird Asian News. Ok, maybe I will be a little esoteric, its a bit of a personal compulsion. Anyways, I was struck by how different of an emotional response a fish gets when it has features resembling our own, even if its just a mutant ... Read More
