Gigi is Kinda Creepy

BY Jenni in General

I have a shameful secret. Well, I have two. The first is that I have some serious holes in my movie knowledge, and the second is that I have a sweet spot for romantic comedies. I've been trying to rectify the former while indulging the latter these days. Though I've managed to sit through a Derek Jarman film or two and saw The Holy Mountain hosted by the director himself at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, I've never seen an Audrey Hepburn movie, anything ...

It's Friday It's PayDay!

BY Callie in General

Everything's gonna go my way day. At BUST HQ we have been playing this song every payday since it came out in 2006 in celebration. I just realized how much Ying Yang that is, every other Friday for 2 years! This summer Emily pointed out that non-payday Fridays were extra sad so she suggested we play Werewolf Bar Mitzvah. Of course everyone was down for this because that song rules, the whole premise is scary. Watch it after the jump. Now I'm off the clock ... Read More
I went to Richmond, VA this past weekend for the LigerBeat (NSFW) benefit party and to do some dickin' around down there. Saturday night I ended up at some friend of a friend's house and midway through some dicktale stopped myself short and had a full-blown freak out over an empty Snuggie box. I wore the Snuggie for the rest of the night, in the bathroom for boner reconnaissance, took Snuggie back shots of nuts and butts (the only way I would part with it was if a ... Read More

'Push' It Real Good

BY Jenni in General

Courtesy of Anne Marie Fox/Lionsgate The economy being what it is, I didn't really have the ducats to don some UGGs and fly to Utah for the Sundance film festival. I'm not all that bummed except I missed out on the premiere of Push, which won the Sundance Grand Jury and Audience Award. Push was snapped up by Lionsgate who was, well, pushed to acquire the flick by its main money-maker (other than the Saw movies) Tyler Perry and one-woman media juggernaut ... Read More
Check out this award winning video called The Story of Stuff . It is narrated and written by Annie Leonard who tells the story of where our stuff comes from, what happens to it when we throw it away and who really benefits from our crazy consumption obsession (THE MAN! no surprise there) It is sort of depressing but if you stick with it til the end, you're left feeling optimistic about the future. Maybe we will all think twice before we buy our tenth pair of ... Read More

Fashion Flashback!

BY Callie in General

I think my Jem and the Holograms doll use to have the dress that she wears in the beginning. I also love the flat tone of 'these are buggle beads.' Well I'm gonna go teleport to my closet now. Want more Brenda Dickson? Check ... Read More
Just when you thought that Sarah Palin had finally receeded into the back of our national consciousness like a bad dream, she's in the news again. This time, according to CNN , it's because her continued 'support for aerial wolf-hunting has sparked a heated cross-country war of words between the governor and an environmental ad campaign fronted by the actress Ashley Judd, with Palin calling the organization funding the ads an 'extreme fringe group.'' Take a look ... Read More

Nothing says Spring like Pussy Willows! I found these earrings on Lost in E minor, designed by Stephanie Simek (she also made the eyelash necklace we featured in BUST  few issues back.
