I really love Top 40's pop/hip hop. Normally, I just tell people that, as a middle school teacher, I have to listen to it so I can relate to my students. But it's all lies. I mean, it does help with the whole relating thing but really it's just so I can dance around my house to Three 6 Mafia.A lot of the time the lyrics are objectifying and gross (the Ying Yang twins got deleted from iTunes one night in a fit of feminist rage). But, if you ... Read More

Surfer Blood's debut album, Astro Coast, was released by Kanine on the 19th, but all the kids have been worked up about them for months. We ran out of room to include a review in our FEB/MAR issue, so HERE IT IS, written with love by our Portland based writer, Elisabeth Wilson.
There are at least two kinds of people who should love Surfer Blood’s debut Astro Coast: people who love '60s hand clappy surf-pop and people who love that '90s indie rock you ... Read More

Thanks for the heads up, China....But, if I could explain the calf pain, can I then use it on my calf pain? Let me know. We love Babeland vibrators regardless.Note to self: Pick up double A batteries. Can't bear the shame of using my parent's living room TV-remote batteries another day. I use them and put them back, same night service. No problem. But, I know one night, I'm gonna fall asleep and hear this the next ... Read More

Abortion can have a happy ending. Seriously. But you wouldn't think so by watching American TV shows or movies. Most of the time the A-word isn't even mentioned and the plot dives straight into "Oh noes, how will I raise this baby on my own!" Of course, then you have the adoption genre with shows like Glee that have characters waffling between adoption and teen motherhood. Juno goes as far as to enter an abortion clinic before deciding ... Read More

Despite sounding like a space-age feminine hygiene product, Apple's new iPad launched today with nary a lady in sight. Even though we here at BUST were as excited about the launch of this product as anyone from the cock-and-balls set, Apple seems to have forgotten that women are consumers for the latest tech at all. In the video promoting the new product, a number of Apple developers tells us all about their new thingamajig and why it was constructed. It's not such ... Read More

There are zillions of blogs referencing retro fashion, using found photos and allowing us to pay tribute to the fashions of yesteryear - but here's one with a twist!
You know that feeling when you're rummaging around your parents house and you find a box or album of pictures of their lives before you existed? I bet you've stared deep into your mother's eyes and wondered 'how did you get your hair SO big?' - you've probably also despaired that she threw away all ... Read More
