In case y’all Liz Lemon-lovers haven’t been keepin’ up with your Twitter feed, we should explain that 30 Rock has been receiving a helluva lot of flack this season. The critics say that Liz is more frazzled and mean; has become infantile and has an unhealthy father-daughter relationship with Jack; is turning into Homer Simpson; is too much of a bitch to her writers; is an idiot; is just not quirky enough.
Perhaps you agree with these gripes, but ... Read More

If you're anything like me, you love cats and NPR, (and you need to quit jocking my swag because cats and NPR are/have always been my thing…) so listen up because you're going to enjoy this. Shanthony Exum, better known as Miss Eaves, is currently writing six songs in as many weeks. She's asking fans to vote on the topic of each song on her Facebook.
Last week she brought us this gem about cats:

Our lovely Emily Rems, joined by Entertainment Weekly editor-in-large Ken Tucker and Queen biographer Mark Blake debate whether Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" is ingenious… or just indulgent on NPR's Soundcheck Smackdown.
I personally think this song is inspirational, beautiful, the perfect song to wail along with while vaguely intoxicated on public transportation, (when you don't care that people are staring atchoo.) If it's good enough for Garth ... Read More

That building would be the Catholic Church.
Rice was never exactly the follower the Catholic Church dreams of. She’s known primarily for either the seriously sexual Vampire Chronicles (the first of which was written the year Stephanie Meyer was born), or the seriously soporific Sleeping Beauty Trilogy (a BDSM series that never gets any more BDSMish than repetitive spankings). Then there’s also that series on witches in there ... Read More

I tend to hate the idea of one woman giving an interview where she winds up speaking on account of “all women.” We are all very different and of course can only speak from our own individual points of view.That being said, NPR is my hero. The good people over there have officially launched their new series “Hey Ladies,” which is based in this crazy new-fangled idea of working woman musicians. In March, they sent out a pretty decent list of ... Read More

Getting into the Father's Day spirit, here's BUST's own Emily Rems talking with Celeste Headlee and Rafer Guzman about the best movie dads on NPR's "The Takeaway." Happy Father's Day to all those dads out there!
As far as film dads go, I gotta love Mac McGuff, Juno's dad. I mean, check out his dadly wisdom:
Dad (Mac): Look, in my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. ... Read More

To those who ask, "Can't we all just get along?" We at BUST say, "Where's the fun in that?" Hear our own Emily Rems debate who has got the best late night band on NPR's Soundcheck Smackdown. Hint: Rems has some different ideas... If that's not enough opinionator for you, have a listen as our Eat Me columnist Chef Rossi describes the perfect summer encounter. (Maybe she's talking about sex, maybe BBQ sauce; have a listen and you decide.)

"Sex and the City 2" has had a lot of criticism and harsh reviews since it's release not even 36 hours ago. NPR's "The Takeway" contributor Rafer Guzman says SATC2 is bad for men and women because of it's unrealistic portrayal of, well, everything. BUST's own Emily Rems defends the SATC franchise, highlighting the importance (and feminist perspective) of women's friendships in the show and movies. Go Emily!
