The chorus kids at Staten Island’s P.S.22, who gained fame a few years ago with their spot-on renditions of popular songs, are at it again. This time they wow the indie music scene with their version of "It Feels Like We Only Go Backwards" off Tame Impala’s new record, Lonerism.
Who doesn’t love a chorus group composed of adorable and insanely talented kids? The cover sounds damn good--I’d even say as good as the original. Read More

People, I've been having a rotten day. Maybe you have been, too. But I dare you -- I DARE YOU -- to watch this video and remain in a bad mood. It is a scientifically proven fact that if you watch a video where a dog swims with wild dolphins (yes! a dog! dolphins! water! swimming! interspecies cuteness!) you will not be able to maintain a bad mood. This fact was scientifically proven by me, just now.
Watch it and get ready to feel awesome. They should bottle this stuff. Read More

For me and many other creative people I know, crafting has always been a solitary and selfish endeavor. Between the month during 7th grade that I holed myself up in my room every evening to work on a latch-hooked Winnie the Pooh pillow and the hours I currently spend in quirky vintage boutiques looking for trinkets to deconstruct into novelty earrings, I’m embarrassed to admit that most of what I make falls into the ‘look, don’t touch’ (or take, or ask, or beg for) category.

Summer in the city is perfect for bicycle rides to work or to the park. The wind gets all breezy and you’re going so quickly you don’t have to worry about weird extended eye contact with anyone. I didn’t think bike rides could get much better, until I saw Ninian Doff’s short, “A Professional Display of No Handed Bike Moves.” Set to the infectious song “Golden Tree” by Martin Brooks, a few experienced lady and gent cyclists perform a variety of impressive, expressive, and hilarious hands-free gestures.

If there’s one thing I’m sure of at the BUST office, it’s that everyone here loves cats. We might have found our rival, though: a man by the name of Louis Wain. Wain, an extremely successful freelance illustrator throughout the late 1800s and early 1900s, gained his reputation with hundreds of humorous cat illustrations. He was even the President of the National Cat Club, according to the Henry Boxer Gallery. Read More

There must be something adorable in the air today, because we caught wind of a documentary that's sure to melt our hearts: Too Cute! Baby Sloths premieres on Animal Planet on February 25 (it will air on March 4 in the UK, under the name Meet The Sloths). We hope sloth superfan Kristen Bell has her DVR set for this.
Lucy Cooke's doc takes us to the Aviarios sloth sanctuary, first featured in a short video she made called "Meet The Sloths. Read More
There are various opinions on the day that is Valentine's Day, but me? I love it. I like hearts. I like candy. I like the color pink. I'm all for it. I'm also all for post-Valentine's Day candy sales (yum!). I think Valentine's Day is as good a day as any to spread a little love in the world, whether that means sending your bestie surprise macaroons from the macaroon queen, buying yourself a little "something something," spending quality time with your bf/gf, or just smiling to strangers a bit more (not in a creepy way).

The BUST office has been all a-giggles at this clip from The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Apparently, Kristen Bell---star of Veronica Mars and Forgetting Sarah Marshall ---is in LOVE, LOVE, LOVE with sloths; so when her boyfriend (Dax Shepard) surprised her on her 31st birthday with Bimbo the Sloth, this happened:

Cutest, sweetest meltdown ever.
If you're a K-Bell fan (and admit it, you are now), you can catch her on the Showtime comedy Hou$e of Lie$ this season (Sundays at 10pm). 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

Watch this adorably pooped sea lion struggle his way through a Wednesday. I think this little lazy guy is my spirit animal. I may collapse and refuse to get up on my way to the printer. Read More
