We’ve already heard some controversial news regarding contraception laws this week, and now we’re dealing with the proposal of anti-choice bills. The “fetal heartbeat” bill would ban abortions as soon as a heartbeat is detected. Fetal heartbeats can be observed as early as six weeks from conception, before many women even begin noticing signs of pregnancy. Of course, this law would completely contradict Roe vs. Wade, which gives a woman the ... Read More
Although “Thank You for Being a Friend” is pretty much perfect for the vibes of NBC’s beloved Golden Girls, the song was not actually written specifically for the show. The original song was written by Andrew Gold in 1978. The voice we hear during the intro is Cynthia Fee, who re-recorded the song for the show, which premiered in September of 1985. Listening to the original is kind of mind-blowing, so let’s start this weirdfest by reminding ... Read More
February is upon us and that means Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! We know that nothing shows that you care more than a gift made with your nimble fingers. That’s why Miniature Rhino’s tutorial on creating your very own nifty message in a bottle is perfect for this lovey-dovey season. But what makes this idea even more awesome is that it doesn’t have to be lovey. You can write any message you want, making it a suitable surprise ... Read More
Now that our tears have dried after the news of the Girls breakup, we can all welcome Christopher Owens’ solo act to our ears with love. Lysandre is a concept album with a stranger sound than that of Girls’ beloved Album and Father, Son, Holy Ghost. The 11-track LP seems even more personal, but think less of that lo-fi sound and more experimental folk. Owens is currently promoting Lysandre with a long list of international tour dates, one of which I ... Read More
Yesterday Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got sassy with Senator Ron Johnson on Capitol Hill at the Benghazi hearing. (As if she didn't have enough Republican bullshit to deal with already.) Johnson questioned the U.S. Consulate’s accounting of the September 11th, 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya. He insisted that the Obama administration deceived the public by calling the attack a “spontaneous protest.” Clinton attempted to respond, but was ... Read More
Later this month, NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit plans to shoot an episode that features convicted rapist, Mike Tyson, as a guest star. Tyson will play Reggie Rhodes, “a murderer on death who is also the victim of a difficult childhood.” You may recall that the boxer physically abused his wife, Robin Givens. Or that in 1991, he raped Miss Black America contestant, Desiree Washington, in a hotel room in Indianapolis.If you love SVU ... Read More
Dear Brooklynite BUSTees: If you find yourself in trouble with cops in the future, just blame it on your seductive hipster boyfriend! Works like a charm.    Sophia Anderson, former Bushwick resident, almost took the blame when her ex-boyfriend, Daniel Sajewski, drunk-drove his parents’ Mercedes into a house in Long Island. She has since been “conditionally dismissed” of charges, and is on probation for six months. Her lawyer, John ... Read More

In this video, Tina Fey gives us a tour of Liz Lemon’s office. I know what you’re thinking. “I want to go to there.” And so do we! (Duh.) There are tons of great knick-knacks and random wonderful Liz-esque things, but most importantly, she talks about the framed copy of BUST on her wall! We first noticed that she had our October/November 2006 issue starring beloved Amy Poehler on the front cover on display a few years back. Now she’s here to talk about ... Read More
Guitarist, songwriter, and singer Kate Eldridge is probably one of the hardest working musicians in the punk scene right now. Big Eyes started in Brooklyn, NY (although they’ve relocated to Seattle, WA), and has been releasing LPs, EPs, split 7 inches, and touring left and right since 2009. Kate shreds on guitar and writes some catchy-ass lyrics (see “Back From the Moon”). Big Eyes is like rock ’n’ roll but a little heavier. ... Read More
