It was raining gold in Minneapolis, and I’m not talking about a Donald J. Trump pee party. On Saturday, May 13, 2017, a Minneapolis-based event company, Flip Phone organized the first ever Golden Girls Bar Crawl in Downtown Minneapolis. The goal was to achieve the Guinness World Record for the most people dressed as Golden Girls in one room. While the jury is still out on the record, more than 1,000 people rolled up dressed as their favorite characters then split into four teams - Blanche,...

A Russian ensign, a Japanese pilot, a black communications officer; the first on-air interracial kiss, a civilization gone extinct over skin color, kohms and yangs. Star Trek: The Original Series tackled civil rights and Cold War era political issues with a deft commitment to diversity. Though following series  — The Next Generation, Voyager, Deep Space Nine and Enterprise — took up thoughtful stories about exploration and humanity, none quite matched the sheer political commentary of the original. That is, perhaps, until now. The Star Trek: Discovery trailer opens...

Welcome to yet another dramatic episode of the Bachelorette, the reality TV romance competition where thirty hunky bros line up to debase themselves for the love of an exceptional woman! If you missed last Monday’s premiere, fear not. All you missed were a few intro packages, 31 corny limo exits, several unsolicited “Whabooms!” and one unexpected makeout with a hot Colombian chiropractor named Bryan, who also snagged the first impression rose. Then eight guys whose names I mostly can’t remember went home. You are now...

Poptarts is a twice-monthly podcast hosted by BUST Magazine editors Emily Rems and Callie Watts that celebrates women in pop culture. The first half of each episode is devoted to a hot topic in entertainment, and in the second half, a segment called “Whatcha Watchin'?,” Callie and Emily dig into all the shows, movies, books, music, videos, and podcasts they've enjoyed since the last episode, and either praise or pan each experience. This week, everyone is talking about David Lynch’s Twin Peaks reboot on Showtime and...

Queer women are rejoicing at the twitter hint that The L Word, the hit show that followed the lives of a group of L.A. lesbians, may be returning. Ilene Chaiken, the woman behind the show, tweeted, out of the blue, "So excited, can't wait...!" with the twitter handles of the majority of the cast. Further energizing the already excited fans, Kate Moennig, the actor who played Shane, the dreamboat who sparked many a young queer ladies' sexual awakening, tweeted back her excitement. Sarah Shahi, who played Carmen,...

We’re big fans of Arrested Development here at BUST, especially of Alia Shawkat, who we featured on our cover back in ‘09. So we’re greeting the news that Arrested Development will return to Netflix for another season with hesitant excitement. As you probably know, Arrested Development aired on Fox from 2004-2006, becoming a cult favorite but got canceled after its third season due to low ratings. It came to Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, to mixed reviews - the negative ones were due, in...

There are a plethora of shows examining the bumbling quest for self-fulfillment among millennial age women - think Girls, Broad City and Insecure - but what about the thirty-somethings who are still trying to get that webseries into Sundance and figure out their love lives, all against the ever-louder tick tick tick tick of their biological clock? Enter award-winning filmmaker and playwright Lisa Ebersole and her webseries 37 Problems. 37 Problems follows Amanda, a 37-year-old woman whose baby is her webseries, as she learns that she only...

Yesterday’s Washington Post report that Trump revealed highly classified information about ISIS intelligence to Russia’s foreign minister and ambassador led to countless responses - but Stephen Colbert’s may be the best. “Well, ladies and gentlemen, I’ve got good news, and I got bad news. The bad news: The Washington Post reports that Donald Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador. O.K.? The good news: Trump found the leaker. He’s fast, he’s fast.” He continued, “Here’s the deal-io. When Kislyak and Lavrov were...

Melissa McCarthy hosted Saturday Night Live for the fifth time on Saturday, and of course, she had to bring back her impression of Sean Spicer after his latest hiding in - I’m sorry, AMONG - the bushes fiasco. Videos of McCarthy-as-Spicer zooming around Midtown on her motorized podium flooded the internet on Friday, and the actual sketch was just as good as we hoped. The sketch begins with Aidy Bryant as Sarah Huckabee Sanders leading a press conference, while Spicer hides AMONG the bushes and watches -...

In this week's Full Frontal, Samantha Bee explores the captivating prose of Ivanka Trump's Women Who Work, an "initiative celebrating women who work at all aspects of their lives." Cool.  But Amazon reviews call Women Who Work "the literary and philosophical equivalent of Laffy Taffy." User M.D. Couturier writes, "No kidding, I’ve read pop-up books that contained more insight into the human condition." And in keeping with the misogynistic spirit of the Trump administration, Ivanka's self-help book aims to inspire women not through personal testimony, nor cited...
