BUST favorites Spank Rock and Santigold teamed up for "Car Song" on his 2011 album Everything is Boring and Everyone is a Fucking Liar, and now there's a spooky music video to go with the song. The video, directed by photographer/filmmaker Luis Gispert, highlights pretty much everything we love about Spank Rock: his irreverent sense of humor and playful eccentricity. The climax of the video features Santigold needlepointing while two girls cover each other in ... Read More
This picture aptly summarizes precisely what is wrong with the on-going reproductive rights debate in America. This is a panel put together by Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee which is holding a circus hearing titled “Lines Crossed: Separation of Church and State. Has the Obama Administration Trampled on Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Conscience?” today. Notice how not a single person on ... Read More
Add Virginia to the list of states where lawmakers want to make it easier to be a fertilized egg than a woman. Rather than focusing on education or job creation in light of the worst recession since the 1930's, yet another state legislature has turned its energy and resources against our inalienable right to choose what happens inside our own bodies.
The Virginia House of Delegates passed two controversial anti-choice bills, sending them to the Senate. ... Read More
My mother has all these great cooking stories from her girlhood involving her Italian aunts making homemade ravioli out of giant volcanos of flour right on the kitchen table. Wild stuff! One of her greatest regrets is never mastering the art of handmade pasta while she had the chance, so a few Christmases ago I bought her a cookbook called Cooking with Italian Grandmothers. She opened the box, looked at me and said, "Are you pregnant?" She totally missed the really ... Read More
Earlier today the White House announced a new compromise on the controversial Affordable Care Act. In a press conference, President Obama announced a change of course meant to satiate embroiled Catholics and conservatives who felt elements of the new law were a violation of conscience. Namely, the part where employers (even those with religious affiliations) must provide employees with insurance including contraceptives. "No woman's health should depend on ... Read More
Yesterday the Pentagon announced new measures that will bring women serving in the military closer to combat than ever before. With the new policy implemented, women will be able to fill thousands of jobs, including medics, intelligence officers, and helicopter pilots, previously reserved for men only. Women have been allowed to serve in these positions at the brigade level since 1994, but this new policy assigns women to the battalion level, which is much smaller ... Read More

Modern technology is dope. We're all in touch with each other in ways previous generations could never imagine. Thanks to Facebook I have access to the daily happenings of literally every human being I have ever encountered. Right now I could pull out my phone and video chat with my mother who lives across the country from me. That is some Jetson's level shit right there! Unfortunately, I can also pull out my phone at closing time and text my ex some poorly ... Read More

So this claims to be the official twitter feed of Cat Fancy Magazine. It takes about .03 seconds to realize this is a hilarious prank. Some intern at Cat Fancy is probably saying, "I told you we needed a twitter."
Here are screenshots of some of my faves. But seriously, it's all pitch purrfect!
This might even trump the cat who ran onto the field during Liverpool vs. Tottenham, my favorite cat-related internet story of the week.
You need to a ... Read More
You know the kind of apology where the person is like, "Sorry you're so sensitive you got mad at me?" Those are the worst kind!
Nancy Brinker, CEO of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, released a statement apologizing for her foundation's controversial decision earlier this week to end its long-standing partnership with Planned Parenthood. Sounds like they're walking it back on this one, which is the best possible news for women everywhere.

My Nintendo Wii thinks I am 83-years-old. It really does--this is not hyperbole. That's because when I took the physical fitness test offered on Wii Sports, the console could tell I was not the most athletic nor coordinated person alive. I can't truthfully say this was shocking news. Unlike Fergie, I'm not frequently up in the gym working on my fitness. One time I tried to do those Biggest Loser 30 Day Shred videos but I didn't have weights so I used bottles ... Read More
