The BUST crew loves the popular podcast Serial! From debates over potential theories to our favorite lines from narrator Sarah Koenig and her assistant Dana Chivvis, Serial tends to come up a lot (less that crafts and definitely less than cats, but more than say… the weather).
Anyway, a video parody for the now famous podcast has hit the Internet and we can’t stop watching! The creators of the video (SubmissionsOnlyTV) get the tone of Koenig down ... Read More

Upright Citizen Brigade comedians, Paul Laudiero, Zach Cherry and Will Stephen are behind ... Read More

The sold-out crowd at Blaria Live cheered -- ... Read More

"You're not like, a 'gay' gay guy." "I wanna set you up with my friend--he's gay, too!" Is anyone else sick and tired of gay people being clumped together into one stereotypical persona by ignorant straight people? *Shoots hand up enthusiastically*

Ok, so this is pretty much gold.
"Royals" gets an overhaul by three women of color actresses--Tess Paras, Haneefah Wood and Ayana Hampton--who use the song to comment on typecasting and representation in Hollywood.
"I'm gonna play the white girl's nerdy friend[Of course][Obviously]I'm gonna play the white girl's other friendWho is sassy[Omigod, you nailed that]"
In a funny but disturbingly true rendition, we are all reminded that gender and race ... Read More
Almost every home product advertisement you can think of features a woman acting out a pretty stereotypical domestic role; you’d think all we spend our time doing was wiping counters and asking our rambunctious husbands and sons to take their shoes off.

Like many others, we were shocked and appalled by Robin Thicke and Pharrell’s “Blurred Lines.” As the song’s title suggests, the song contains concerning lyrics that blur the very clear divide between consensual sex and abuse: New York Magazine's Ann Friedman explains that “phrases like ‘good girl’ and ‘I know you want it’ uttered in rapid succession [sound rapey].” The song stirred up more ...
