It’s back. Lena Dunham’s much-discussed, often-criticized, critically adored, game-changing TV series Girls will finally return to HBO this Sunday, 1/13. It’s no secret that BUST wants to make one hundred babies with Lena, but some staffers fretted that the show’s second season might not live up to the ever-growing hype surrounding it. To say we were eagerly anticipating Girls’ return is an understatement. So when the season-two ... Read More

Hump Day Jam

BY Molly Simms in Music Stuff

Last night, Editor Emily and I went to check out a movie screening that we're contractually barred from talking about (but was SO good), and it started with this tune, "Back and Forth," by the Aussie band Operator Please. We hadn't seen the video until today, and are now fully having crushes on every member of the band. This song is pop cotton-candy fluff at its finest, and this video's making us seriously consider buying fashion turbans. You need to a flashplayer ... Read More

Vive La Justice

BY Molly Simms in Music Stuff

I’m embarrassed to admit it, but I should come right out and say it: my name is Molly, and I’m a Francophile. Clichéd, but true—I read French street-style blogs, I am an obsessive stinky-cheese fan, I’ve visited France on multiple occasions, and I studied the language for close to nine years. (Which means I can speak it well enough to order something complicated in a restaurant, but not well enough to have a discussion about ... Read More
There are many reasons I’m thankful that the Internet was invented. Without it, how would I get beer and cookies delivered to me without leaving the house or speaking to a human being? How would I read celebrity gossip without having to pay actual monies to a garbage tabloid magazine? And most importantly, without the Interwebs, how would I watch the brilliant and mortifying video gems unearthed by Everything Is Terrible? The very good people of Everything ... Read More
Much like Flavor Flav, I enjoy a large “statement” necklace, so I plotzed when I saw Young Frankk’s brass chokers, which resemble giant metal collars. You can special-order them by contacting her through her Etsy store ($78, including shipping in the U.S.), where you can also find a selection of other ridiculously cute pieces. I got mine yesterday, and I’m already planning on never taking it off: The mastermind behind Young Frankk is ... Read More
Last night, the BUST staffers had a Ladies Night Out at the premiere party for Portlandia’s season 2. We have huge TV crushes on the IFC hit, and the second season way exceeded our expectations. The two new eps we watched at the party were packed with delightfully insane jokes, new characters (FYI, “We can pickle that!” is the new “Put a bird on it!”), and old pals like the aggressive bike messenger and feminist-bookstore owners. The blowout was held at ... Read More
A few years ago, I kicked a nearly lifelong nail-biting habit, and am currently enjoying the spoils: normal-person, non-gnawed-on hands. To celebrate my talons—and hopefully stop myself from backsliding—I’ve been keeping my nails painted as much as I can. Luckily, I’m in good company—all my buddies and the other GLOB (Gorgeous Ladies of BUST) are nail-polish addicts. I especially like glittery stuff, because, as far as I’m ... Read More
I know how it is--every year, December flies by, and the calendar creeps closer and closer to Dec. 25th. Your palms sweat, and you get nauseated with anxiety, wondering “WHAT am I going to get for Molly for Christmas”? Don’t freak, because I’m here to help. This year, instead of the pony you would normally buy me, please head directly to the Curator website, and purchase these Burt and Dolly portrait t-shirts. The toughest part of owning ... Read More
Take two cups of 'Pee Wee's Big Adventure,' 1/2 cup of Rachael Ray, a heaping tablespoon of 'H.R. Pufnstuf' and 5 tabs of acid--then stir frantically. The result? IFC's new show, 'Food Party,' which is hosted by the irrepressible, bat-shit crazy (in the best way) Thu Tran. Her gonzo cooking class is filled with a cast of degenerate puppets who float around her cardboard sets, helping assemble sometimes-inedible masterpieces. It started as a series of web shorts ...

               For those of you who aren't into watching the Koalas battle the Manatees this Sunday at the Stupor Bowl (I have no understanding of who is playing, or how sports work), there is a safe place to rest your eyeballs. Sarah Haskins, the brilliant comedian profiled in the December/January issue of BUST, will be hosting a show on Current called the 'Target Women Super Special.' The hour-long special, ... Read More
