Don't Divorce Them!

BY Emily Rems in General

'Fidelity': Don't Divorce... from Courage Campaign on Vimeo.  I just watched this video called 'Fidelity' that the Courage Campaign has put out with Regina Spektor to support their petition asking the Supreme Court to invalidate prop 8 and it totally made me well up. Like, did you know that Ken Starr has already launched an initiative that, if passed, would un-marry all the gay couples that already wed in California before prop 8? Madness. Check it out, and let your legislators know that the best valentine they could give our country would be the civil right to marry for all. Read More
It's true, Humbert Humbert's be walking among us. I have been doing a bit of research on women's issues in the Middle East and upon doing so came across this story of an 8 year old girl being married off to a 47 year old man in Saudi Arabia. Part of me wants to believe it cannot be true. Part of me knows that this totally happens.

  I've been totally on the fence about this octuplet thing since it started dominating the news.

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 with Gene Kelly, or any of the classic musicals.

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 so what you got to say. Read More
