Since Best Coast debuted the first single, “The Only Place,” from their new album (also named The Only Place), I have been impatiently awaiting the full album (as in, listening to the single, non-stop, on repeat, for days on end). Like 2010’s Crazy For You, the new album puts Bethany Cosentino's sentimental and direct lyrics against a backdrop of waves and sun. And, thankfully, NPR’s First Listen is now streaming the whole album ... Read More
Last night Amy Poehler, living goddess and two-time BUST cover-lady, joined Jimmy Fallon on Late Night for a hilarious interview that included five-second celebrity impressions and reminiscing about fake movies they've starred in together. As always, Poehler employed her ninja-like improv skills to create ridiculous story lines to go along with the posters.   The equally hilarious Part 2 is here:   Of course, the gem of the bunch is ...

  Have you checked out a book from The Underground New York Public Library? We haven't either, which is probably because it’s not an actual library, but rather a beautiful blog created by Ourit Ben-Haïm. It's got a straightforward concept: take and post photos of fellow subway riders who are reading books. For such a simple premise, the blog is surprisingly engaging and thoughtful. According to the website:  "The Underground New York Public ... Read More
After successful stints on SNL and 30 Rock, we all know that Jon Hamm is not only an impeccable dramatic actor, but also a fantastic comedian.

If so, now is the time to break out your… pen and paper (to apply!).

Last week, a woman with a Kindle sat next to me on the subway on my way to work. Because I am nosy, and because I had just been wishing I had a Kindle, I glanced to my right to admire her light, easy-to-read device. Instead, I immediately caught a glimpse of a rampant sex scene (she was clearly using the largest text setting and leaning forward, in my defense). What was I to do, except continue reading over her shoulder? For the next 10 minutes, I enthusiastically ... Read More

What is the true source of artistic inspiration? Is it divine or mystical? Does creativity come from nature, or from your subconscious? It seems the God of Unbearable Boredom breathed inspiration upon artist Nina Katchadourian on a flight two years ago. After spontaneously snapping a shot of herself with a toilet seat cover on her head in the airplane bathroom and noticing its uncanny resemblance to 15th-century Flemish portraiture, Katchadourian decided to create ...

As conservative politicians continue to litter the world with disgusting and offensive sound bites about women, it's a relief to finally hear someone talk some sense. And an even bigger relief when that person is the President. Speaking about women and the economy this morning, President Obama reiterated the should-be-totally-obvious fact that women are actual individuals! He stated, "There’s been a lot of talk about women and women’s issues lately, as ... Read More
Remember when you were a young girl faced with a really tough dilemma, you thought to yourself, “If only someone could give me advice in my own, tween, rhyme-y wordplay language”? Well, someone has finally published the book you’ve been waiting for! After years of writing “Starlette Universe” as a comic in Pageantry magazine, creator Kathy Johnson has compiled a whole book that is “aimed at young girls and designed to appeal to ... Read More
