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
We're all starting a new diet at BUST. It's called the Ch Diet. You can only eat foods that start with a Ch: cheese, chocolate, chicken nuggets, chimichongas, chips, chili cheese tater tots, Chex Mix (bold party blend preferred but not required), chalupas, chowder, chorizo, Checkers fries. We think it's going to take the nation by storm. Just remember you heard it here first.  The BUST office is all a flutter today with excitement for the big cheese party ... 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 ...

At the end of a controversial week for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a documentary premieres across Canada today that shines a critical light on the Big Pink. Pink Ribbons, directed by Léa Poole, investigates the charity-corporation machines that have risen out of the fight against breast cancer. Despite the billions of dollars that have been raised over the years, cancer rates have also risen to a staggering 1 in 8 women.  The film, based on Samantha ... 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.  Read ... Read More
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
Without a doubt, my new favourite band ever. A feminist punk rock collective inspired by Bikini Kill writing anti-Putin songs (“Putin has pissed himself”) and performing in guerrilla-style costumes in Red Square itself. And to think, my colleagues in the music press used to scorn Riot Grrrl … From Big Think: The following story details how one group of girls have taken on Putin. Other revolutionaries take note. Here’s how you can do ... Read More
Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists, made a shocking announcement Tuesday afternoon--they're ending their longtime partnership with Planned Parenthood. SGK's Facebook page has been flooded with reactions since then. Nancy G. Brinker, the organization's founder and ambassador, uploaded a video meant to give "straight talk" about the controversial decision.  The choice to siphon most ... Read More
  New York City is notorious for its smells. I mean really, this city stinks. Sometimes it's trash day stink; some days it's fish market stink. And sometimes you don't even know what source could possibly be causing you to hold your breath and speed walk down the block back into the realm of earthly scents. Fortunately next week the Tour de France Restaurant Group will be celebrating the good kind of stinky with their fifth annual Winter Stinky Cheese ... Read More

Say it With a Banner

Ugh, all the shop windows are reminding me that Valentine's day is coming up soon. It's the stupidest holiday ever except for the fact that it provides the perfect excuse to order a heart-shaped pizza for one and buy yourself a present. Ever since I stumbled upon this lil gem on tumblr, I've been hellbent on getting one of my own.   This would look perfect hung right above my bed to let everyone who enters my room know what exactly is up. I'm also really ... Read More
