Here's the pitch -- a great chef who loves music creates "tour food" for his favorite indie bands. What doesn't this new IFC show have going for it? You can be the judge tonight, when Chef Sam Mason brings his culinary talents and visual splendor to the small screen's premiere episode* of "Dinner with the Band," airing at 10:30 EST. OK, I'm calling it "tour food" because I don't see pheasant actually hitting an on-the-go menu anytime soon, but who cares? It's such a genius way to get behind the scenes and see that human side of interesting people. Read More
Our own Callie Watts (aka Calisha Jenkins) will host a live show on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network this Tuesday! Producer, Zales, and the Live Experimental Interactive Television Class at the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU have concocted a new scheme to mirror the video-chat phenomenon, ChatRoulette. Viewers (including you!) will be able to call-in and play the game of chance along with Jenkins and a few special guests. Visit tubesoap. Read More
Two of our favorite ladies, Diablo Cody (pictured here on the cover of our August/September '09 issue) and Jill Soloway (one of the writer/producers of The United States of Tara) wrote and directed a new short for Funny or Die called "Tight." We think it's great. Read More
Fighting It, a feature documentary that chronicles filmmaker Jill Morley as she her trains to compete in the New York Golden Gloves, is in its final production stages. The film follows Morley's struggles both inside and out of the ring and explores how boxing ties into larger issues in her life. Morley features the struggles of other female boxers as well in order to show the many reasons women are drawn to the sport and how it is more than just a sport to many. Read More
In a move that must be doing wonders for sales, Lane Bryant's new lingerie ads have been banned from the airwaves by ABC television. Reps for the company claim that network execs deemed the commercials too sexy to run, which is kind of unbelievable since they've had no qualms showing Victoria's Secret ads in the past. The snowball does get rolling, however, as we learn that Fox News (which had no problem showing the below Victoria's Secret spot) also denied Lane Bryant. Read More
If you didn’t catch Glee (or aren’t a fan, somehow) last night, you missed an awesome episode. And I say that as an admitted flip-flopping fan of the FOX show. Something about the Material Girl’s spirit really translated in the show, making for a female-empowering hour of song and dance. It managed to, in its fun way, touch on some serious societal issues, including the way (high school aged) men treat women. Read More
"Green Porno," the uber weird and wonderful series by Isabella Rossellini, now has a follow-up in "Seduce Me." Like its predecessor, "Seduce Me" demonstrates the bizarre mating rituals of animals--including bedbugs (ew!), ducks, salmon, and snakes--with Rossellini costumed up and acting out each of the various roles. It's crazy entertaining. How something this whimsical made it in this economy beats me. There's no upsell to this thing, except maybe a line of anatomically correct creatures. Quick, get marketing on the phone! Or just check out the teaser, below. Read More
Aziz Ansari will be sure to unleash his ace stand-up on the MTV stage this June at their 19th Annual Movie Awards, and we can’t wait! Ansari has had ‘em rollin’ in the aisles (or couches rather) with his new sitcom, Parks and Recreation; sharing the night along with BUST’s April/May cover man, Tracy Morgan of 30 Rock. Essentially locking in Thursday nights as a sure-fire date with the boobtube. Read More
The Sutton family recently competed on Family Feud and got the category "Something Everyone Knows About Ellen DeGeneres."  And clearly, the first thing people think of when they think of Ellen is that she's HILARIOUS, right?  Nope, it's that she's gay.  Good lord. Read More
