I love the internet, because it allows for pictures like this to be exposed to the world. I don't know how many times I've ordered a burrito and thought "I feel like I'm about to ingest an infant." Which I've always thought was a unique, vaguely disturbing thought- apparently it's not! This picture proves that I'm not a sicko! Hallelujah! Burritos have the same heft and warmth of a baby. Except burritos are significantly more delicious. This picture is also great ... Read More
I've recently discovered the Found Footage Fest's Youtube channel. And man, is it filled with an enormous amount of bizarre, low quality video clips. Most of the footage featured is extremely strange. I'm not sure if it's the early-nineties aesthetics or, the creepy synth music, but they're all transfixing. The channel features video footage that you would probably find at a yard sale, or a garbage dump somewhere if they weren't rescued by FFF, and so lovingly ... Read More

Meow Metal Madness

  Happy Hump Day BUSTies! Is the thought of it being the middle of the week getting you down? Are you like me and dreaming about the weekend? Does it feel like the heat-pocalypse where you are too???   Life is hard. I am lazy. Time goes by so slowly in the summer time. At least at the BUST offices we have air conditioning, and an adorable pink Hello Kitty microwave which really helps the mid-week, mid-day slump/slouch fest that's going on right ... Read More
According to this info-graphic from bitrebels.com, kitty cat fans are more likely to read magazines such as The Nation, Elle Decor, and BUST! This battle of feline vs. canine is a fierce one, and everybody seems to prefer one over the other. Most people you encounter in life usually have a strong opinion on the matter.  Other factoids gathered from from 222, 651 Hunch users: Cat owners are slightly more likely to be women and skew liberal; ...

List this one under "Reasons Why I Love the Internet", because this website dedicated to photographs of Morrissey posing with cats is nothing but PURE JOY. Morrissey, is my favorite mopey, angst-ridden musician. He understands doomed relationships, being lonely in nightclubs, wanting to bludgeon people in their beds... and cats. Morrissey is a passionate animal rights advocate, and has worked a lot with PETA, so it's not completely random that he has so many ... Read More
Last week, we had Youtube sensation and rising pop star Kreayshawn at the BUST offices for an interview for the upcoming issue October/November issue! Just over a month ago the 21 year old Oakland based rapper posted the video for her "Gucci Gucci" song on Youtube, and since then her video has had more the three million views. Boom! Folks at her record label have already started to call her "Swag Spice", which seems like the best way to describe this ghetto-fresh ... Read More
 I'm so siked on the first single from  Cansei de Ser Sexy's third album La Liberacion! This band has been featured in BUST before, and they still GOT IT. Today is the second day of summer, and this is going to be the song to play on all the warm-breezy-sunshiney-sticky days we're going to have. SUMMER TIME IS THE TIME FOR FUN ASS POP JAMS. Tis' the time of the season for singing along to lovey-dovey tunes while sipping cold drinks and feeling ... Read More
Last year, Mooncup ran a poster campaign in London, inviting women to submit nicknames for their ladybits. Now they have what I'm convinced is Jessica Rabbit singing 'em out for you. This seems like a pretty blatant "viral ad campaign" attempt. They might as well have choreographed a flash mob! Yawn. This ad campaign does make me realize what a taboo of a word "vagina" is, and what cutesy nicknames ladies get for their private parts. Seriously, if anybody calls ... Read More
  Yee! We so excited! Matt &Kim won our hearts with their happy shenanigans (like streaking in Times Square), and their fun poppy tunes where they sing about HAPPY things- like daylight! (You see what I did there?)   The weathers getting nicer, and this music video is highlighting all our warm summertime feelings! Matt and Kim can frolic around New York City like the darling hyped up creatures they are, and we are loving every second of ... Read More
