...or any day, really. I never watch the Super Bowl, but if I did, I know I’d be eating a million cookies or potato chips out of the sheer boredom I’d experience. If I was watching, I’d need to get creative with my mini-meals. Read More
You may remember Buffi Jashanmal from season 10 of Project Runway. We at BUST remember her as an awesome former intern! The self-proclaimed fashion badass and DIY enthusiast showed her colors (literally! HA.) and crazy style on the competitive reality series, but she definitely wouldn’t stop there. Buffi already launched a fashion line in Dubai, and is now releasing a book, Make-It-Rock Dress Design through Storey Publishing. Now you can see a showcase of her unique designs from the book at the Philadelphia Home Show. Read More
Out of the 4 million U.S. citizens categorized as secretaries or administrative assistants between 2006 and 2010, 96% of them were women. You might be wondering why this is, since most of you probably aren’t fantasizing about your future blossoming career as a secretary. Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we? When the Industrial Revolution created massive amounts of paperwork to be completed, the need for secretaries rose. Companies were keen to the fact that they could pay women lower wages, making them the perfect target for the many jobs that had been created. Read More
Illustrator, cartoonist, and artist Lisa Hanawalt attended NYC’s International Beauty Show with her stand-up comedian boyfriend, Adam Conover. Hanawalt lets us know that she’s there to find out “how to be a real woman.” The two give their amusing takes on the whole ordeal, as Adam especially points out the ridiculousness of it all. (I have to admit, Adam, when I heard the acronym “IBS” my first thought was also Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Read More
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 right to an abortion until about 23 or 24 weeks of her pregnancy. 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 ourselves of the less-than-a-minute-long intro... 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 for your best friend, significant other, mom, cousin, grandma, etc, etc, etc. 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 was lucky enough to attend. 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 repeatedly interrupted by Johnson. 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. Read More
