Pie Pops?!

BY Web Intern in General

 I'm pretty sure it's a law of the universe that if you want to make something even better and cuter, transform it into a mini version of itself. Now, pies are amazing (and kind of cute) in their original form, so that's why I bugged out at the discovery that, Luxirare has designed pie pops. I need this in my life, immediately. Also, if you're in the mood for some food porn, be sure to follow that link because there is some seriously wonderful photography documenting the process of making these tiny treats. Just a fair warning for readers at work: it is extremely graphic. Read More
Let me start out by saying that I love dance, and I love So You Think You Can Dance, but there is one problem that develops with a show that's mostly limited to male/female duets. The choreographers tend to stick to traditional male/female roles. Their dances are usually a variation on a theme of a love story, with the woman falling into the role of being in love, hurt by love or a sex kitten. Wade Robson was the exception with his more character-driven routines, but even still his dances often emphasized a love story, albeit a twisted one. Read More

  Two causes we support here at BUST are free books and tattoos. Thankfully, the Texas library community has found a way to combine these two wonderful things. In order to raise funds for their library system, twelve ladies volunteered to show off their ink for a 2010 calendar. For only $20 you can help save something seriously worth fighting for, and admire some real ladies who rock in the process. Read More

If you saw 2007's 'Waitress' starring Keri Russell, chances are you remember director/supporting actress Adrienne Shelly, who nearly stole the movie as Dawn, Russell's funny, quirky waitress friend looking for love. After the film was released it received numerous awards at independent film festivals. Tragically, just before its release Shelly was murdered in her New York City office by a construction worker. Monday, August 3, a memorial garden honoring the late Shelly will be unveiled at Abington Square Park located at 8th Avenue and 12th Street in New York. Read More

Cheat Well, Eat Well

BY Team Intern in General

I'm pretty daring when it comes to food. Well, maybe not daring, but adventurous. Okay, maybe 'open-minded' is the term. I love trying new things, but, let's face it, I love it even more when I know a bit about what I'm biting into. Luckily, the evil mad scientists over at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories have come to the aid of suspicious foodies--at least when they're dining South Indian. Read More

Fearless FeWhales

BY Team Intern in General

When I was in second grade, I was OBSESSED with whales. Not kidding. I drew whales, I watched TV shows about whales, I listened to whale noises on CD (ever wonder who bought those 'Song of the Humpback' albums? Yeah, that was me). And why? Duh: because on top of being the most amazing, intelligent, gorgeous animals ever, their lifeguarding skills are top notch! According to The Sun , a beluga whale (yes, like the Raffi song) literally saved a woman incapacitated and drowning during an aquarium diving contest in China. Read More
