Upon first listen to Cool Breeze Over the Mountains, you'd be pretty surprised to think that Spaceships is only made up of the two L.A. dwellers, Jessie Waite and Kevin LaRose. The duo manage to make the 9-track album sound louder, fuller, and radder than you'd ever expect from a two-piece. Waite and LaRose do it all themselves and do a damn good job of it. Drawing from fellow Californian punks The Muffs, the super duper lo-fi songs make for a quintessential bedroom rock 'n' roll record. Waite's versatile vocals are sometimes bored but she can flip it on like a light switch. Read More
You might have seen the commercials for U by Kotex's sport pantyliners, that are running in Australia, where the narrating voice tells you that "sweat patches" are "not good." Zoom in on crotch of girl doing crunches in the gym, looking totes embarrassed because "OMG I'M NOT ALLOWED TO SWEAT DOWN THERE!" The ad goes on to show women noticing their disgusting, wet down-theres and then fleeing the scene or attempting to clumsily hide this humiliating part of their workout. Read More
If you've never listened to Hunx and His Punx you should probably get on that, like yesterday. Seth Bogart (Hunx himself) writes killer rock 'n' roll songs with the talented Shannon Shaw (of Shannon and the Clams) who wails her heart out like you wouldn't believe until you hear it IRL for yourself. Bogart likes to call it "hairdresser pop," or maybe "punk-pop" (not to be confused with pop-punk), and lately you might call it "street punk." (Mostly because their brand spankin' new album.

  We've been closely following the work and status of admirable teenager Malala Yousafzai ever since we first heard reports of her attack back in October. The 15-year-old advocate for women's education rights was gunned down by the Taliban, shooting her in the neck and head. She amazingly survived this awful crime and has been continuing to speak her mind and raise awareness for these pressing issues ever since.  Now Davis Guggenheim, of Waiting for Superman and An Inconvenient Truth fame, has announced he's putting together a documentary about the Pakistani lady's life.

In a recent article, the Wall Street Journal talked about the advances of new cleaning products and how they've changed to work even faster than ever, blah, blah, blah. More importantly though, WSJ decided to accompany the text of the piece with drawings of women, and only women, using these housekeeping items. Because as we all know, men can't complete such mundane tasks! Those are to be left to us helpless females. Men and women are equal and all, but who could bother a dude to wash a dish? Way to perpetuate the stereotype of women always cleaning up after their families. Read More
In this video, UNICEF asked several women from many different backgrounds the same question: What's it like to be a girl or a woman today? From different countries all over the world, the interviewees are both young and old, but all bring a profound perspective to the burning issue. Some are more optimistic than others, but mostly arrived at a similar conclusion. (While a USA resident happily declares, "I have the same opportunities as a man," a middle-aged woman from the Democratic Republic of Congo observes, "I can say the situation has improved slightly, at least for those in the cities.

I don't know about you, but the the last thing I'd ever want to see if I was trying to take my young daughter to the restroom is a man covered in feces staring up at us. What the fuck, dude? Yep, that's exactly what happened to a 29-year-old lady and her 7-year-old daughter last week in Oklahoma park. She noticed Kenneth Webster Enlow in the filthy vault while using a public restroom at White Water Park. Investigators reported that "she saw that there was a man underneath the toilet looking up at her and her daughter...[He] was sitting down and...he never said anything or asked for help. Read More
With all the upsetting, uber-depressing news pouring in left and right lately, I believe a good cat video is in order. This furry lil friend is up to no good, trying to nab some human's rug. (But what do they need it for anyway? They don't even have claws to knead and rip it up with! Silly humans.) Just try to tell me you've seen a cuter game of tug o' war. Read More
It's hot. It's humid. It's sticky. It's basically hell on earth. Okay, so maybe you don't hate summer as much as I do. But wherever you are, it's hard to escape the nagging critters that love to make us feel itchy and awful all over during these few months. And those of you who enjoy the out-of-doors can especially relate, so there's no question that bug spray is a summer essential. Read More
Call me a fire because I'm gettin' stoked! The BUST 20th Anniversary Extravaganza is going down real soon and we at BUST HQ couldn't be more excited. We've got a heaping helping of amazing performers and guests, plus a booty-shaking dance party afterwards! One artist that I'm especially pumped to see is Awkwafina, the hilarious and talented Queens-based rapper. Also known as Nora Lum, Awkwafina's "My Vag" was a BUST fave from the get-go. Read More
