The great movie site Hammer to Nail has posted a call-to-arms for cinephiles in NYC to save local video rental store Cinema Nolita by supporting the creative and awesome endeavors of its Video Store Girl Eleonore Hendricks. Eleonore says, 'Really, our first idea was to just make sure that we didn't have to sell the collection off individually, to make back the money we had lost by not being able to pay the rent... The goal is to make the 8,000 dollars so we can pay our back rent so we don't have to use the videos as collateral. Read More

FYF Sends an SOS!

BY Team Intern in General

Plucky 18 year old Sean Carlson started the independent and aptly-named F Yeah Fest in 2004, alongside his buddy Keith Morris (yes, that Keith Morris, of Black Flag and the Circle Jerks). Since then, the festival has grown out of it's Echo Park home to a new locale in the LA Historic State Park, and the FYF crowd holds even more events all year. And, needless to say, the festivals draw a killer crowd of performers including Ladyhawke, Sarah Silverman, No Age, Japanther, and Matt and Kim. Read More
America's Next Top Model starts its lucky 13th season (or 'cycle' in CWspeak) next month, ushering in a new league of young women vying for that kind of fleeting semi-famehood only Tyra Banks can bestow. This time 'round, Tyra's throwing us a real curveball; none of the contestants pass the 6 foot mark, making these girls the shortest class paraded past the show's fabulous judges (the teeniest is only 5'3''). Unfortunately, Tyra must have gotten so caught up with this small love idea that she neglected to sign up any plus size models. Read More

The Name Game

BY Libby Zay in General

What's in a name?  Apparently, a lot more people get heated up about the issue than you might think.  Although far from a new debate, a recent study reports that 71% of Americans think women should take their spouses name after marriage.  Half of the respondents said the act should be a legal requirement.

A woman who was abducted (with her young children) and raped from the parking garage of the Stamford Marriott in Connecticut is suing the hotel for not securing their facilities. In response, the hotel is now claiming (and blaming) the woman of being careless and negligent and that she 'failed to exercise due care for her own safety and the safety of her children and proper use of her senses and facilities. EXCUSE ME?! (ConnPost.com ) First people argue that women no longer have to worry about being overly cautious because the world has changed. Read More

Hung's Hang-ups

BY debbie in General

HBO is known for featuring shows that are not afraid to be as sexually explicit as they wanna be. So when they announced that a show called Hung, about a male prostitute, was coming to their channel, I figured it would contain some sex, and, in particular, some hot male booty. And, in fact, there is a naked man-butt right in the opening of the show. Read More
We here at BUST love all creatures great and small. My own closest companions in the world are my two wonderful dogs, Ollie and Triskit. So when someone showed me that Michael Vick is being reinstated into the NFL 'on a conditional basis' I had to share my outrage. The commissioner of he NFL, Roger Goodell, as well as many experts believe that Vick has been rehabilitated and knows what he did was wrong.  Goodell even went as far to say 'this is a young man's life we are talking about', and everyone deserves a second chance (CNN). Um...what? He's not a teenager. Read More
Move over, Olsens! Peace out, Paris! Want a real fashion role maiden? Meet Iris Apfel, queen bee of quirky, cool, original fashion. Back in the 1940s, when skirts and sweater sets were the mode, Apfel hit the streets in men's denim jeans. Men's denim jeans, hoop earrings, and, ah yes, a turban. And so, an icon was born. Since her youth, Apfel's combination of glamor and flamboyance have influenced the fashion world in a big way. Now, Rare Bird of Fashion: The Irreverent Iris Apfel , an exhibit hosted by the Peabody Essex museum, will honor this truly fierce female. Read More

In my search for the perfect transition sandal/shoe for fall, I've stumbled upon many gladiator (yuck) and whatever you call those frankensteinn boot/shoe combos (Booes?) but I am happy to say I found the perfect classy peep toe wedge with these neat Jeffrey Cambell gems, called the Vera 2 (available in black at Karmaloop and Lori's Sole of Chicago ).
