President Obama called Sandra Fluke, the woman who testified about contraception in front of Congress and was called a "slut" by Rush Limbaugh, to make sure she's okay.    “He encouraged me and supported me and thanked me for speaking out about the concerns of American women,” Sandra Fluke, a third-year law student said. “And what was really personal for me was that he said to tell my parents that they should be proud. And that meant a ... Read More
I miss Downton Abbey so much already. It's gonna be AGES before it comes back and I'm pretty much inconsolable.

Am I flying too close to the sun?  Here are some songs Internet People wrote inspired by DT Abbs (wow I thought that would sound better than it did sorry.)

Today the Senate shut down Sen. Roy Blunt's controversial amendment which would allow any employer the right to refuse coverage for any health service in conflict with their religious beliefs.   The debate centered around women's health, namely contraception, and brought us that lovely all-male hearing on the issue and a lot of ungrounded slut shaming from conservative pundits. Most Democrats and Republican Olympia Snowe voted no on the measure, citing ... Read More
I love sneakers! They make me think of summers spent running around in shorts, climbing down rocky shores to sunbathe by a lake.  They're no-nonsense in the way they help you get shit done, but it's awesome when sneakers can be fashionable too. Here at BUST, we're vibing pretty hard on these new sneaks from Gravis's collaboration with Brooklyn artist Dan Funderburgh. They have the same effortless L.A. style we've come to love from Gravis with an added femme ... Read More

Mad Men returns to AMC on Sunday, March 25 so study up! Source ... Read More
