Meet the Fempire

BY Laurie in General

There's an interesting article in the NYT's Sunday Styles section today about Diablo Cody's gang of screenwriter friends who live and work in LA that totally made me smile. They call themselves The Fempire, and it's about 4 female writers that support each other and are actually doing something for us girls by writing smart and funny scripts for women. Debbie and I had the delightful opportunity to meet and interview Diablo awhile back and she is everything we hoped; smart, amusing, cool and adorable! Look for our video interview w her soon on BUST TV. Read More

Love Is In The Air

BY Web Intern in General

So my sister, my one and only sister, is getting married this summer. In my quest to find a great gift, and helping her out with all the planning, I've come across some pretty awesome wedding-related goodies. If any California based BUSTies are also planning to tie the knot, check out photographer Max Wanger. His engagement photos for 'Joanna and Alex' and 'Grace and Dominic' are exceptionally adorable. I love the balloon and candy themes! It's just too bad he's in LA and my sister and her fiance are in Boston; I'd love to get them a shoot with him. Read More

Away We Go trailer

BY Lisa in General

There are so many awesome things about this movie I don't even know where to start. But here goes. The screenplay is by amazing author Vendela Vida and her equally rad hubby Dave Eggers. Maya Rudolph as a leading lady! John Krasinski. With a beard. Wearing nerdy glasses. Hot. Allison Janney, Catherine O'Hara, and Maggie Gyllenhaal top the supporting cast. And it's directed by Sam Mendes, but looks like a sweet, poignant movie with plenty of laughs (unlike the depressing, suckerpunch-to-the-heart films he usually gives us). Opens June 5. Read More
LOOK AT THESE FREAKIN HUMANOID FISH!!! These ladies are the product of one very inbred pond in South Korea, they are the last of their kind because no male-equivalent exists. If you need to know more than that, check out Weird Asian News. Ok, maybe I will be a little esoteric, its a bit of a personal compulsion. Anyways, I was struck by how different of an emotional response a fish gets when it has features resembling our own, even if its just a mutant pond-carp. Read More
