By Nadia Chaudhury Girl meets boy, girl falls in love with boy, girl moves in with boy, boy proposes to girl, girl and boy plan wedding, boy dumps girl, girl attempts to find self. This isn’t your typical romantic comedy, where everything works out perfectly. This is Lola Versus. Helmed by director-writer Daryl Wein and his writing partner/significant other Zoe Lister-Jones, the New York-based Lola Versus positions itself as the raw and realistic antidote to the multitudes of shiny romantic-comedies that invade theaters.

Reviewed by Michael Levine One of BUST’s fave musicians, Siouxsie Sioux, was awarded an IVOR at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Park Lane on May 17th to a standing ovation from a music industry crowd. The special inspiration award was presented to Siouxsie on stage by her close friend John Maybury, and was preceded by a five-minute film depicting Siouxsie’s life and career--from forming Siouxsie and the Banshees with Steven Severin, to recording a track as a solo artist, "Careless Love," for Mr. Maybury’s film The Edge Of Love in 2008.

We BUST staffers have a mouthful of sweet teeth-- we email each other photos of ice-cream concoctions and homemade marshmallows as if we're sending around breaking-news items. We get goodies sent to the office from time to time, but few have gotten as much attention as the stuff we recently received from Sweet Mary's. We marveled over the multicolored Caramel Chocolate Apples, which were approximately the size of a newborn baby's head, and quickly devoured a bag full of Sweets Mix (above), which is a mixture of cereal, nuts, and other sundries, all covered in melted white chocolate.

Pink Ribbons Inc.

BY BUST Magazine in Movies

  We're very curious about a controversial new documentary (opening in the U.S. this weekend) that shines a critical light on the Big Pink. Pink Ribbons, Inc., directed by Léa Poole, investigates the charity-corporation machines that have risen out of the fight against breast cancer. Despite the billions of dollars that have been raised over the years, cancer rates have also risen to a staggering 1 in 8 women. The film, based on Samantha King's 2008 book by the same name, focuses on activists as well as women battling the disease. Read More
We saw this post on "Food Pervert" Laura Vincent's blog HungryandFrozen.com, and had to share it with you.  I thought that Gin and Tonic Ice Cream would be nice. Gin and tonic go together so excellently well, so why wouldn't they excel together in ice cream form? Well, it wasn't so much "nice" as "high-kick-then-landing-in-a-split-ingly rapturous", but you be the judge.   You no more need an ice cream machine for this than you need to know how to do the splits. It really couldn't be easier. Or more unconditionally delicious. Read More

**UPDATE: We have our winners! Thanks for playing, everybody! May is National Barbecue Month, Blood Pressure Month, Hamburger Month, and Bike Month, but most importantly, and amusingly, it's also National Masturbation Month! We're long-time advocates of self-love, so we're happy to publicize this holiday (though we celebrate it all year, not just in May). Buying a vibrator used to require a trip to the nearest sexy-times emporium, but recently, sex toys have been going mainstream. You can now buy all sorts of pleasure enhancers at places as mundane as the drugstore or grocery store. Read More
