Bad Lip Reading is back and as uproarious as ever.
The first time I watched Twilight I was helping out at a birthday party for 13- year- old girl, so I was without a doubt scarred for life. Robert Patterson was ruined forever.
Thankfully, Bad Lip Reading came to my rescue. This video is the only way I could ever watch 7 minutes of the Twilight series without cringing.
The clip is full of hilarious lines and even a couple of tambourine song numbers. ... Read More
How's your Halloween going? Have you carved all of the pumpkins? Have you worn your "Sexy Chucky from Child's Play" costume once already so it's kind of tattered but it'll still look so great in a dimly-lit room full of tipsy people? Are your apples bobbed and your candies corned? Cool, me too!
Listen to this mix as you prep for our national day of cosplay and lighthearted faux paganism—they're the sort of moody-spooky-sexy jams that the Lost Boys ... Read More

As the YA genre has risen in popularity in recent years, the number of female protagonists has also grown in both books and film. Besides the obvious awesomeness of this, it’s especially great for there to be strong female characters in books for younger teens. I remember having a hard time finding many books with girls as the main characters beyond anything written by Tamora Pierce when I was in middle school. (Not complaining, though. All her characters ... Read More

I’m sure you won’t mind that I’m not reciting this letter out loud to you on YouTube, the way a 14-year-old Twilight fan would. People are so full of feelings about you lately, Kristen Stewart—about your affair, your breakup, your public apology, your reconciliation. I have feelings about you too, but I’ll do my best not to make this weird.
I’m sorry that I didn’t have the best impression of you at first, when I ... Read More

If you haven’t picked out your Valentine’s Day gift to yourself yet, we’ve got you covered. Beautiful Bastard, a new novel by Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings that launches on February 12th, started out as online Twilight fan fiction. The authors then edited and reworked their piece for publication. The book is about Chloe Mills, an ambitious intern who falls for her domineering boss, Bennett Ryan. Of course, in the original fan ... Read More

News broke yesterday that Kristen Stewart is not just involved in a fictional love triangle with a werewolf and a vampire. In fact, she is the tip of an all too real equilateral between her, her Twilight co-star/(ex?) boyfriend Robert Pattinson and the director of her last film, Snow White and the Hunstman. Not only did she commit infidelity in her own relationship, but she made the other dude an adulterer. That's right, he's married. Kristen is apparently ... Read More

When you were little, did you ever make paper snowflakes in art class? Well, papel picado is kind of like that, only much more elaborate. Originating in Mexico, the folk art involves making cuts in colored tissue paper and then stringing the designs into banners. It sounds simple, but the results are gloriously elaborate. Yreina Flores Ortiz, who owns the Etsy shop Ay Mujer, has put a modern take on her culture’s tradition by making banners you'll want ... Read More
Love it or hate it, you can't avoid Twilight. Last night, I joined several other BUSTies (and about a million swooning girls) for a midnight screening of round two of my favorite teen vampire drama. To sum up -- it was AMAZING.
If you're going to sit through a two-hour-long angsty teen drama, there's no better way to do it than with tons of screaming teenagers and their mothers. I haven't heard so much squealing at an event since the Backstreet Boys concert I went ... Read More
