Review: Mike Mills' Beginners

BY Laurie in Arts

Director, writer, and graphic designer Mike Mills (whose first film was 2005’s Thumbsucker) has a new movie out June 3rd called Beginners—a beautiful film about love, death, and new beginnings. Based on Mike’s personal experiences, the story revolves around 38-year-old Oliver (played by Ewan McGregor) whose father Hal (Christopher Plummer) comes out as a homosexual at the age of 75 after his wife of 45 years passes away. Unfortunately Hal is ... Read More

Contest ends May 31st 2011, still time to enter! If you own an official Polaroid camera manual from the 1960's, 70's or 80's you've undoubtedly noticed the mod ladies stiffly posing for product shots. With perfectly manicured†nails and immaculately coiffed hair, these ladies were not only fine as wine, but they're also a window into the fashion of the day. If you have seen the hit series Mad Men and salivated over the styles of the working girls, this is ... Read More
A few weeks ago we posted the last video created for Peaches "I Feel Cream" release for the song "Mud" but apparently there were two separate videos made for this song, and below is the 2nd, and it's pretty Fierce! We asked Peaches about it, and here's what she had to say: BUST: Who made the video, and why were two versions done? Peaches: Jasmin Tarasin made this video. She built a pit with a tractor to have the girls fight in.  I met her when she asked me to ... Read More

Here at BUST we love cooking shows, recipe blogs and generally anything food related, (see our Food issue out now) but honestly, this is THE BEST cooking demo EVER!! Meet the Vegan Black Metal chef as he demonstrates how to make Pad Thai, it's the best thing I've seen in a long while.

How to Live Forever review

BY Laurie in General

Have you ever worried about getting old? I’m pretty sure everyone over the age of 10 has, and director Mark Wexler certainly does. He thinks about it so much that he set out to find some answers about longevity, and his new documentary film, How To Live Forever is an interesting look at aging in our society. I asked my pal, Ari Seth Cohen who created the inspiring blog, Advanced Style to check out the movie with me. While some of Wexlers concerns about aging ... Read More

Back in the early 70’s, the idea of reality TV was born when a documentary filmmaker decided to ask the Loud family from Santa Barbara California, if he could film their daily lives and air it on PBS. Anyone who grew up in the 70s will remember the long, sometimes fascinating, sometimes boring, grainy episodes of American Family that aired, and the two characters ... Read More
