Pre-Internet, if you wanted to send a love letter to someone, you’d write it down on paper. Maybe you would add a few x's and o's, stickers, a mixtape (in my romantic imagination), a lipstick kiss for good measure, and send it through snail mail. But today, if you want to send a love letter, would you post it on the Internet? Or even address it to the Internet? Now, there’s an entire site called “Dear Internet…” dedicated to writing love letters online. Read More

Free Band Names For All

BY Emma Orlow in TV

As with Jordan Catalano’s group, "The Frozen Embryos" on the 90s TV show, My So-Called Life, band names don’t necessarily have to make sense. Especially when you’re a teenager-- they’re just another way to express bottled-up angst.  Although I could stare at pictures of early Mick Jagger all day, I'm less excited by band members than by the bands' names themselves. I just love coming up with names for fictional bands that will likely never exist. Read More
Rory Gilmore from Gilmore Girls has always been my guru. Her wit, intelligence, never-ending appetite, feminist outlook, and multi-dimensional plot lines are a rare combination of characteristics for female leads to possess within today’s pop culture. Likewise, there were few episodes of Gilmore Girls where Rory wasn’t reading a book, referencing a book, or standing with a stack of her prized books—her thirst for knowledge was a key part of who she was.

If you’re lucky enough to live in the fabulous city of Portland, you could experience a perk other than having an adult-sleep away camp in the works for your fair city. The hit IFC show Portlandia is looking for season three extras. Call your oldest relative, because they’re looking for “everybody and their grandma” according to the call sheet. Portland’s bustling “hiking trails, backyard sustainable organic farms and basement rock venues” wouldn’t be complete without youths and geriatrics alike. Read More
SXSW-featured musician and BUST favorite Zola Jesus will be on Conan O’Brien tonight! Huzzah. After a European tour earlier this year and a stint at the Guggenheim, ZJ will grace our television screens performing with Brooklyn hip-hop star El-P. The two will definitely be playing something from El-P’s newest solo album, Cancer 4 Cure. The rapper announced his on-air collaboration with ZJ via Twitter saying “tomorrow I'm on Conan with the squad and Zola Jesus. day after that la.” He then tweeted a picture of a very sullen looking Zola a few hours later.

Comedy Central officially announced today that outspoken comedian Roseanne Barr is next in line to be Roasted, joining the list of the network's former Roastees which include Charlie Sheen, Donald Trump, and Betty White. Not only has the feisty feminist delved into the world of reality television, sitcoms, and film to name just a few, but she’s also BUST's very own advice columnist with an endless supply of sass under her belt.  In regards to the highly-anticipated roast, Roseanne remarked, “All I can say is good luck finding anything about me to make fun of...

Joan Rivers has been making us laugh while criticizing everyone (and their mom) since the 1960’s. She’s made a career of calling the stars out on their appearance and poor fashion choices in the least delicate way possible. No one is safe—we all get it, it’s her shtick. Read More
Growing up in the late 60s, one of my feminist heroes was Batgirl from the Batman TV show. The character Barbara Gordon,  librarian by day, quickly morphed into her alter ego Batgirl when trouble arose. She was sexy, tough, rode a motorcycle, got to wear a fabulous costume, and kicked major butt. Played by  Yvonne Craig (seen here), check out this PSA demanding equal pay for women. Read More

New Girl's New Grille

BY Intern Christina in TV

Just in case Zooey Deschanel's presence on your TV screen on Fox's fall hit New Girl, iPhone Siri commercial, or SNL as a host was not enough adorkability for you, her face now may be on a bus in a city near you. Today the New Girl Facebook page announced the "True American" bus tour, which will kick off labor day weekend in Boston and move on to New York. The tour's name clearly comes from the show's infamous patriotic drinking game, to which the rules are still unclear. Perhaps we can learn on the tour, since it looks like every major city in America will be getting a dose of Zooey and Co. Read More
Summer in the city is perfect for bicycle rides to work or to the park. The wind gets all breezy and you’re going so quickly you don’t have to worry about weird extended eye contact with anyone. I didn’t think bike rides could get much better, until I saw Ninian Doff’s short, “A Professional Display of No Handed Bike Moves.” Set to the infectious song “Golden Tree” by Martin Brooks, a few experienced lady and gent cyclists perform a variety of impressive, expressive, and hilarious hands-free gestures.
