I have Frances Blaisdell to thank. It seems a little bizarre to me to think that the flute was ever off-limits to women, because today it's such a female-dominated instrument, but that's how it was. Women weren't really allowed anywhere in orchestral music when she was young, but she managed to play her way in and open a lot of doors. I started playing the flute when I was 9 and continued all the way through college. I haven't really played since I graduated, ... Read More
Apparently we're on some sort of reality TV bent here at BUST, because here's one more. An Oxygen TV poll reported that more women age 18 to 34 would rather win America's Next Top Model than a Nobel Prize. I think that, to get through this, I'm going to convince myself that this is the result of shoddy polling methods and a not-so-random sampling of women instead of a true measure of where the world is heading. The same poll says that 75% of women would ... Read More
Here's a real gem thanks to the Onion : ''Renowned Hoo-Ha Doctor Wins Nobel Prize For Medical Advancements Down There.'' The article is hilarious.

You know how the media can't stop talking about Michelle Obamas arms? How they think it means she's 'strong-arming' her husband? how she's gonna win the arms race? how she's giving American women the right to bare arms? well, the arms themselves have decided to enter the fray of bad puns and semiotic limb deconstruction with a blog of their own. First Guns is a hilarious look at our cultural preoccupation with the First Lady's guns, in said guns' own words. From ... Read More
