Think you know everything about roller derby? Some have the perception that it’s riot grrrls in fishnets, punching the shizz outta each other on skates. Well, did you know that it started in the 1930s, was rebooted in the early 2000’s, and has 1,500 leagues around the world today? Don’t worry, this isn’t a derby pop quiz, but here’s your opportunity to help learn about some famous jammers!  Margot Atwell, some might know her on the flat track as the kick-ass Em Dash, has been skating with the New York league, Gotham Girls Roller Derby, for seven years.

Yesterday we brought you Kristen Schaal’s “The Sexy Vagina” costume, but today is a new day to talk about our lovely lady bits. And what’s the best way to start off your day? With some good 'ole period talk!  Ah yes, menstruation, a truly blissful time for every woman. Obviously I’m being sarcastic, because for most ladies, that week really sucks. Read More
Yesterday, a few friends and I ventured to Northern New Jersey to do some pumpkin picking. While I was in the car, I noticed that one of my friends was crocheting an infinity scarf. I knew that there must be another way to DIY an infinity scarf without crocheting, and low and behold, Pinterest saved my life. I found out that DIY-ing an infinity scarf is quite simple. All you really need is some fabric, straight pins, a pair of scissors, and a sewing machine, (if you don’t have one, some needles and thread will do). Read More

Working at BUST, I have learned to love a good yarn bomb (or two). Although I can’t knit, or at least I’ve never attempted to, I do appreciate some wonderful, beautiful yarn. It’s the thought that counts, right?  Well, to my surprise, one of my most beloved New York City bridges, the Williamsburg Bridge to be exact, has been officially yarn bombed. The yarn was constructed at the entrance of the bridge on the Williamsburg side, giving Brooklynites the chance to soak up some bright rainbow colors before crossing over to Manhattan. Read More
Sometimes I think Google knows me better than myself. Whether it’s from finding the address of my eye doctor (I always forget, don’t judge!) or looking up something delicious to eat, Google always has my back. #sorryBING I even take part in the interactive Google Doodle every now and then, but today’s Doodle really made me smile. Today, Celia Cruz, aka the “Queen of Salsa,” is featured on Google for what would have been her 88th birthday. The Doodle features gold Google lettering, and a smiling Cruz, donning peacock feathers with blue and grey hair. Read More

While Wikipedia and Twitter have gender gaps, the one website that has a substantial amount of women working is none other than the petition website Change.org. As Forbes Women reports, women make up 57% of Change’s users, signing 66% of petitions and even starting 46% of the petitions online. The 2007 startup, Change.org, is now certified as a B corporation. Just last year the website generated 100,000 petitions and 10 million users. Read More
I was a little apprehensive to see Sandra Bullock’s Gravity when it hit theaters two weekends ago. Since I’m prone to panic attacks, I didn’t think it was suitable for me to watch a movie where a woman is stuck in space, but despite my feelings, I was completely blown away by Bullock’s performance. As a scared doctor, who didn’t fully know how to handle her space shuttle’s equipment, Bullock’s character was completely autonomous and totally kicked ass. She went through hell and high water to do what she could to survive without any assistance. Read More
Guys, I’m crying rainbows. I don’t think you understand how much this new spinoff means to me. Ja’mie King, the teen queen with a stank-ass attitude from Summer Heights High, is getting her own television show. This news is so perfect, I could scream from excitement.  Ja’mie’s character is crass, and she's the ultimate stereotype of a “popular, mean girl.” Her new mockumentary style show, Ja’mie: Private School Girl, will be a series of six 30-minute episodes.
