My first filmed interview! Here I am looking ridiculous and trying to talk about the Craftacular...at the Craftacular! It was hectic and a total blast, and thanks to everyone who came, was a vendor, took pictures, Dj'd, or just helped the day run smoothly! I could not have done any of it without dedicated BUST interns and staff. It was an extremely special day for BUST. Of course special thanks to the crafty folks at Provocraft, the green thumbs at Trees Not Trash, Joshua Katcher and the Farm Sanctuary! Shout outs to Verve music, Fresh Minerals, O-wool, ModCloth, Izze, and Eyekiss Films. Read More

I'm No Superman

BY Web Intern in TV

Last night was the series finale of Scrubs . In this intern's humble opinion, it went out well. It managed to celebrate its 8-year run but it didn't sacrifice characters or formula for the sake of sentimentality. J.D. was still a nerdy dreamer, Elliot was still slightly neurotic, Cox was still a sarcastic grump (with a heart), the Janitor was still psychotic and Turk was still, well, Turk. I think it honored itself really well. They tied up all the loose ends without buttoning everything up airtight for the rest of the characters'; lives (like Will & Grace did). Read More

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Vick, the former NFL player convicted for his part in a dogfighting ring, is talking to TV producers about a 'proposed docu-series would follow Vick starting July 20, the day of his scheduled release from federal custody, and show him trying to 'make amends for his past.''

Really, TVLand? 'The Cougar'??!

BY debbie in TV

This Wednesday, TVLand is set to begin airing it's new reality series, 'The Cougar,' hosted by Vivica A. Fox and featuring someone in their 40s who's looking for a lover among people in their twenties. I have only one question: hasn't this been done before? ; Strangely enough, on the preview video for TV Land's show, you see the guys talking about why they like 'older women,' (like it's a fetish). I've never seen them ask that question of the contestants on the above shows, though. Read More
But until the day that the land of my forebearers decides that oppression is not an integral part of culture and heritage, I offer this video to Bust readers as a token of my faith in Texas. This song was originally written by Ned Sublette 1981, since then it has been covered by Pansy Division and of course, Willie Nelson! And yes, that is Burt Reynolds sitting next to Willie. Also, any reason to see cowboys waltzing with cowboys is a good reason. Read More
Then you've most likely been subjected to those outrageously annoying 'Weekender' NY Times ads. There is simply no hiding from them - they are as ubiquitous in this city as rats. My BF and I are particularly incensed by the Liz Phair-like 'So, the deal is...'girl. Now, finally, some folks have made a spot-on parody of it, and I can't stop watching it. It's like a cool summer shower, washing away the greasy buildup of all these years of watching the irritating original. Read More
Did somebody say horrifying television? Check out the upcoming show 'More to Love.' Fox's new reality show will be more or less in the vein of The Bachelor, but with one key difference: fat people (GASP) Or, I'm sorry, not fat . . . regular people as the execs keep saying. Producer Mike Fleiss says he wants 'to send the message that you can be the size you are and still be lovable.' Oh, well I guess now that Fox says my fat ass is lovable I suppose I can hold my head a little higher. Read More
