In this world we live in, there are wonderful crafts—the brilliantly executed, aesthetically pleasing DIYs we long to get off of the internet to create ourselves with Popsicle sticks and hot glue guns But for every amazing craft project, there is an ugly equivalent forged while someone was a bit tipsy on Cupcake wine.
Lucky Peach is no stranger to dualism: Bloggers Anna and Gabrielle have taken to celebrating unfortunate experiments with a monthly blog installation called "Deranged Crafts," in fact. Read More

What would you do if I told you that everyone is gay? Assumedly, you would vehemently object, citing the socially- and culturally-defined “normal” orientation that is heterosexuality. But let's say everyone were gay. Then, what if — with the stigma of LGBTQ-ness out of the way — our identities were just accepted in a way that LGBTQ identities, currently, are not?
That's the concept behind which Everyone Is Gay was founded. Kristin Russo and Dannielle Owens-Reid started the website back in 2010, which was originally going to be a funny advice column. Read More

A gem from the Mansplaining Paul Ryan meme
I was absolutely smitten with the word “mansplaining” when it first emerged a couple years back. The term fit my particular frustration with being talked down to by male classmates, professors, and employers like a cozy little sweater of outrage. I found it extremely satisfying to call out offending men-folk with the snappy little portmanteau, and feminist blogs adopted the idea of “mansplaining” with gusto.
But the tide is turning against one of 2010’s most popular breakout catchphrases. Read More
There are a lot of Tumblrs out there in this big, bad world—some good, some not so good. Amongst a sea of awkward found photos and hung over owl pics, there’s occasionally a special gem that makes you feel a little bit better about clicking through Tumblrs all day instead of tackling that ever-daunting to-do list. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some funny cat pictures as much as the next person, but sometimes it’s satisfying to find a blog that contains content that is both funny and inspiring (and no, I don’t mean things like this, either).

Past BUST cover girl and star of this year’s TV hit New Girl, Zooey Deschanel, recently added another shiny badge to her accomplishment vest: member of Forbes magazine’s Celebrity 100 list. The list highlights the “world’s most powerful celebrities” by assessing their monetary value and influence on the business world.
Ms. Deschanel is nothing short of a huge influence in the latter category. She’s a musician, actress, and producer, making her a triple-threat in the entertainment sphere. Read More

List this one under "Reasons Why I Love the Internet", because this website dedicated to photographs of Morrissey posing with cats is nothing but PURE JOY. Morrissey, is my favorite mopey, angst-ridden musician. He understands doomed relationships, being lonely in nightclubs, wanting to bludgeon people in their beds... and cats.
Morrissey is a passionate animal rights advocate, and has worked a lot with PETA, so it's not completely random that he has so many photographs with kitties. Read More

With Mother’s Day approaching this weekend, if you’re in need of a great gift idea look no further than the new book My Mom, The Style Icon for the style appreciative parent. Blogger Piper Weiss came upon a pleasant discovery when she dug through old family photos of her parents, finding that her mother was not only a babe, but a très chic one at that.
For the past two years Weiss has been collecting photos of mothers from around the world and has found that their younger selves are extremely stylish. Read More

I’m a wanna-be foodie; absolutely love reading food blogs and cookbooks. But as a college student I never really have the time nor the ingredients to make much of anything. That and I have a horrible habit of making things and never eating them myself. I just feed them to everyone else.
So I mostly just content myself with drooling over the scrumptious food photos and recipes. Read More

A few weeks ago I stumbled across the blog, But You’re Like Really Pretty and instantly became a huge fan.
Each Wednesday, illustrator and site owner Ryan Casey, posts a hilariously mean webcomic featuring someone or something in pop culture that’s been a particular source of annoyance that week (example below).
Her illustrations are so good and so clever that the blog was recently nominated for a Webby and won the 2010 Bloggie Award for “Best-Kept Secret” webblog. Read More
