You can get so much weird clothing off the internet, you could easily wander the streets dressed like a Vice Don't every day of your life.

Without further ado: send in the cats. We've got cats that cover your naughty bits. Cats with three eyes. Cats that are also women. Read More
Whenever I come across an article about the world’s latest wonder-child, I think back to how my ten-year-old self was incapable of accomplishing little more than consuming every episode of Sailor Moon. But the youths of today are a whole different story. Motivation? Vegetables? Science?! This time, a 13-year-old has revolutionized the way humans and pets can interact with each other at long-distances. Brooke Martin, who just started the ninth grade, is the genius behind the iCPooch: a device that enables the user to video chat with his or her pet. Read More

  It is with sadness and disbelief that I write this blog to report the sudden death of our beloved and honorary office dog, Wally, who passed away of a heart attack earlier today.  Wally was a three-legged foster dog that was adopted by our Sales Director, Emily last year. Within the past year he has spent many days in the BUST office hopping around after his mother, staring up with his big sad puppy dog eyes at anyone with food, in the hopes that he might get some scraps. And of course, there was the way he managed to get several of us here to offer up our laps as his bed. Read More
We've been keeping a secret from you: we have an illegal BUST employee. He isn't on the payroll. We do pay him with love, a place to hang out during the day, and scraps. Truth be told, though, Wally the office dog is probably our most valuable staff member. He's constantly pitching original content, posting blogs, and chatting it up with cover girls for the magazine. We thought it was time we fessed up and introduced you guys to our creative center, so we asked Wally to answer a few questions so you can get to know him better.   Thanks for agreeing to do this interview Wally.

I never knew what it was like to lose a dear pet. My family has had our share of pet fish - RIP Tokyo and Jelly - and my feeder mice, Meece Witherspoon and Meeces Pieces, both died while I was away at college. None of these losses hit me hard; I didn’t necessarily connect with the fish and my most memorable days as a mouse owner consisted of them pooping on me, then escaping and eating pencils off my desk.But while Freckles was still alive, I tried hard not to think about it.
