Mad about Mad Men!

BY Tara in General

If any of you have been reading this bloghole for long enough, you know that 99.9% of my posts are about (my boyfriend) TV. And while the television preferences of BUST staffers differ (ie. Callie gravitates towards reality shows like Miss Rap Supreme and So you think you can dance? while Debbie and Laurie love 30-rock), MY addiction and uncontrollable love affair with television, while it be shitty, sub-par, teen drama or not, has moved my fellow co-workers to ...

Shirley Maclaine as Coco

BY Laurie in General

Super excited to see Shirley Maclaine in the Coco Chanel bio pic on Lifetime this weekend and luckily this will not interfere with my 10 oclock date with Don Draper (Madmen!). I just love, love, love Shirley, have you ever read any of her new age books like Out on a Limb, or Dancing in the Light? She is a real gem, and I'm sure she'll do a great job with Ms. ... Read More

Cute Band Alert

BY Lisa in General

My brother is pretty awesome and always tips me off to rad bands way before I ever would've heard about them. This weekend he dished the goods: Dreamdate is a two-gal-one-guy trio from Oakland, California and I can't stop listening to the tracks on their MySpace page. Luckily there's six of em up so I haven't memorized all the words. Yet. It's sweet-dreams indie pop at its finest, lo-fi love songs that remind me of The Aislers Set (one of my fave bands of the ...

Duct Tape Fash!!!

BY Dawn in General

I was cruising the Girl Wide Web looking for some new online stores, when I stumbled upon Vanessa Jean . She makes handmade purses, wallets, and bags out of...DUCT TAPE. Some of the items are super cute. Have to admit...I'm totally impressed!!! I have duct tape in my apartment at all times. Always the easiest bootleg quick fix it for your house hold needs, but who knew that it was also handy for lookin' good?! ... Read More

Luke Perry, Where Art Thou

BY Callie in General

Last night I watched the rerun of the 90210 premier and I have two questions: 1. Where the hell is Luke Perry, what are you doing with yourself that you don't want to relive your glory days in the hottest zip of the 90's? 2. That cute guy with the big teeth can just whisk dates all over California, so does that make him richer then Diddy ?   This isn't so much a question as a thought, the 16 year old that had the birthday party, Naomi, mad old face ...

Jesus Creepers Sneakers?

BY Callie in General

I really don't know how I feel about this. Kind of love it kind of scared of it. Genius regardless. They are from Nat-2 . For some reason I feel like this is something Kanye West would get behind.   The clear ones are insane, I've worn my share of clear shoes and I can tell you your toes are going to look like worms in a dirty fishbowl in no time.  ...

Frat mentality

BY Laurie in General

I had to watch the Palin 'hockey mom' speech last night, and as much as I expected the usual Obama bashing that the republicans like to do, I was most struck by the creepy fanaticism of the crowd- all white, pasty (old) faces chanting 'Drill, baby drill' and the booing, and laughing at their own lame joke about how Obama was a 'community organizer'- seemed like a bunch of disrespectful frat boys. Actually it reminded me of that dream sequence in Rosemary's Baby ... Read More
