Learning How I Roll

BY Web Intern in General

Remember back when one of our lovely interns posted about Bike Chic ? It got me thinking - can everyone on the planet ride a bike but me? I know; it's a little embarrassing. I'm 25 and I can't really bike. Oddly, in a city where a 20-something without a driver's license is fairly common, not being able to ride anything but the stationary in my gym feels shameful. The last time I tried to ride something with two wheels I was about 14. Let's just say it didn't ... Read More

If you're scared that obsessively washing your hands isn't enough to protect you from swine flu, you might want to consider wearing a surgical mask. But, then you're going to encounter a dilemma - how can I wear a bland white surgical mask with this kickin' outfit? It'll throw off my whole look! FluFashion.net has come out with a line of masks that have patterned and colored covers. You can get tie-dye or bandanna masks, each that will filter out anything ... Read More
When your gays call, you better pick up. Or in this case, when they email. My good friend Craig (the fabulous DJ Smithmix who DJed our 15 year anniversary party last August) sent me some goodies today, one of which was a link to a very cool blog by NY drag superstars Brandy Wine and Brenda A. Go Go. I just about lost it on this fake Karma Chameleon phone, sanctioned by Boy George himself. Hilarious. It seems like it may have actually been a real phone back in ... Read More

Equal Pay Day

BY Web Intern in General

Today is Equal Pay Day, but don't start celebrating just yet. After decades and decades of working toward a pay system that makes sense and doesn't short women, we're still not there. This day is actually a reminder of that: It takes place on a Tuesday every April to remind everyone that, in the United States, it takes a woman six working days on average to make what a man makes in five--a woman would have to work until Tuesday to make what a man had made by ...

It's human nature to want to share our stories, and every culture has done it in some form or other throughout the ages--from cave painters to street artists, from town criers to novelists to the bloggers here at BUST! And when a story is told, both the teller and the listener learn something. That's why I'm a huge fan of StoryCorps, NPR's nonprofit project that has been encouraging people to interview each other since 2003, with its mini-recording studio in ... Read More
