Director Michel Gondry, known for directing Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep has created an ironically hilarious video for The Living Sisters, “How Are You Doing.” The LA-based musicians, Inara George, Eleni Mandell, and Becky Stark have a very catchy sound and made a music video that seems to contradict the happy lyrics of “How Are You Doing?” The series of catastrophic events include burning your morning breakfast and your house down, riding on an airplane during a storm, and going into labor.

For all of March, The Smithsonian Channel is putting the spotlight on some of the world’s greatest female scientists. On the channel’s interactive website, they’ve turned stories of inspiring scientists into short comics for your nerdy enjoyment. The comics are just a preview of the shows that will be airing throughout the month of March. These scientists tackle the question of immortality, run with wolves, and travel around the world to learn about rare species, such as flying mammals in Panama, and an exotic leopard known as the Ghost Cat.

Dear Lemon Lima, Suzi Yoonessi's feature-length directorial debut, is possibly the cutest movie I've ever seen. The movie centers around a young Alaskan girl, Vanessa, who transfers schools to get her ex-boyfriend to notice her again. There, she meets and befriends a group of lovable social outcasts, and they form a team in hopes to win the school's "Snowstorm Survivor" competition. The setup is formulaic, perhaps, but Yoonessi's script takes it past cliché and into something worth watching. Read More
When I heard the radio commercial for the newest Criminal Minds spin-off, Suspect Behavior, I was shocked to find that it starred none other than famed feminist comedienne (and former BUST cover lady) Janeane Garofalo. Turns out Garofalo is taking the role seriously, telling the LA Times, "I don't think I'm that funny. I feel uncomfortable saying, 'How does a funny person get involved in this?' because comedy is subjective. Read More
When my cats are starved for attention, they can get obnoxious and just start rubbing up against anything possible. This adorable feline takes matters into its own hands (paws?) and rubs against all the stairs on its trip down. Read More

Falling for Glee's Lauren Zizes

BY Gabi in TV

Glee character, Lauren Zizes is my new idol. She has a don’t-give-a-fuck attitude reminiscent of Daria, and exudes self-esteem and confidence. Zizes, played by Ashley Fink, started out as a background character in season one.  She gained more air-time when she agreed to join glee club in the latest season, so they can qualify for sectionals, even though she thinks “show choir is lame”. She still remained in the background, up until recently when Puck, the most popular guy in school, develops a crush on her. Read More
 I don't enjoy watching things like Animal Planet. While the footage is usually pretty neat, the narration totally kills it for me. So boring! Enter the YouTube series Randall's Animals. A sample line from "The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger": "Here's a house full of bees. You think the honey badger cares? It doesn't give a shit. It goes right into the house of bees to get some larvae. How disgusting is that? It eats larvae!" I think I've found my remedy. Read More
Apparently the producer was interviewing over the phone, but it seems more like Greg Sestero was interviewing Tommy Wiseau. Or maybe it seems more like a painfully boring interview that you just cannot seem to stop watching. It's probably because Wiseau, who we've previously interviewed here at BUST, may or may not have lost his damn mind. After watching part one of the interview in it's entirety, I don't really know what I've learned, but I do know that Wiseau can't really catch a football and he doesn't know the difference between a high five and fist pump.

Dude-comedy maverick, Judd Apatow, recently announced he'll be producing a comedy by women. Bridesmaids is written by SNL's Kristen Wiig and The Groundling's Annie Mumolo and is a veritable who's-who of tv's comediennes; with a line-up featuring Maya Rudolph (SNL), Ellie Kemper (The Office), Rose Byrne (The Damages), Wendi McLendon-Covey (Reno 911!'s) and Melissa McCarthey (The Gilmore Girls), as the pack of zany gal-pal bridesmaids along for the wild wedding ride.

Can't Stop Pimpin' Portlandia

BY debbie in TV

I've been waiting for this day for weeks--the day that the rest of the country can finally experience Portlandia, the new comedy series on IFC of which we here at BUST are already die-hard fans. Start with Carrie Brownstein, she of everyone's favorite grrrl band Sleater-Kinney (who knew she was funny?) and Fred Armisen (ex-Mr. Peggy Olson and current SNL cast member) and add a good dose of laughing-at-ourselves irony, and you get what just might be the funniest thing on TV since Flight of the Conchords went off the air.
