Crank Dat Spiderman

This Sat I got to go to see Keisha Cole and Eve at the Rock Corps concert. I felt kind of dirty being there since everyone else had to volunteer 4 hours of community service to get a ticket. But whatever I needed to see Keisha Cole! No tickets were sold, the only way to get in was to work it out (unless you got the press hook up!). I am sure it was worth all the hours of fence painting and weed pulling because the show was a radio rap explosion, and I have a soft spot in my heart for catchy radio rap songs. Read More

Here at BUST, one of our eternal Boy du Jour's is David Lynch. As the genius behind such classics as Twin Peaks, Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, The Elephant Man and so much more, Lynch has had an unprecedented impact on cinematic history. So when I first heard about the new David Lynch documentary chronicling his creative process throughout the making of Inland Empire, I immediately started to plan out my Log Lady costume to wear on opening night. If Trekkies can do it, why not Lynch Heads?Check out this trailor!  Like a cup of damn fine coffee...You can see part 2 of the trailor here. Read More

While this video does not make me want to go out and buy Dove soap, I do think it's pretty cool that they are recognizing the onslaught that we see everyday, and opening the discussion of body image  to young girls. I mean, my 12 year old knows an anorexic boob job when she sees one, and thinks its gross, yet you cant help wonder what the day to day exposure is doing to her/us. And as its illustrated here, there is an awful lot of it out there. Read More
