hair today, gone tomorrow.

BY Tara in General

It is an undeniable fact that we are a hairless generation. Unlike our predecessors who valued a full bush, it seems that gals today run to the razor at the slightest sight of stubble. And with brazillian waxing on the rise, more often than not, girls are choosing to go bare, down there. The advantages are that waxing tends to last longer (usually 2-3 weeks) and many admit that they feel "cleaner" with it all gone. And while one may jump to think that ... Read More

Check it out ladies. Poker ain't just a game for guys (well, uh..duh). We're smarties here at BUST, and we've known it for a long time (Dec/Jan issue 2006). But lately, more and more gals have become known for their poker fame. Namely, Stephanie Morgan, a professional card player. She teamed up with Hands-On Mobile and World Poker Tour (think ESPN) and helped create one of the most popular mobile franchises, the World Poker Tour products and applications. ... Read More

"Brute Force" it.

My college offered an elective scuba diving class at night, and this one dude I went to school  with, took it, and he told me once that he liked to "get all stoned and look at all the pretty colors from under water."

I was in attendance for this brand new original production which I can ... Read More

we'll never break up.

BY Tara in Music Stuff

 After 3 long years of hoping and waiting, one of my all-time fave bands evs, Rilo Kiley, answered my prayers and started a North American tour on Sept. 6th. Under the Blacklight, the twangy, alt-rock quartet's 4th release, dropped on August 21st after a long 18 month hiatus during which my girl Jenny toured with the Watson twins (spell it, l-o-v-e!) and cutie male sidekick Blake worked on his side project, The Elected. I was able to catch them live the other ... Read More
