Love it or hate it, you can't avoid Twilight. Last night, I joined several other BUSTies (and about a million swooning girls) for a midnight screening of round two of my favorite teen vampire drama. To sum up -- it was AMAZING. If you're going to sit through a two-hour-long angsty teen drama, there's no better way to do it than with tons of screaming teenagers and their mothers.

The video quality is a little bit terrible -- but hey, it's an illegally filmed cell phone video from an arena show. It still gets the point across. So who's ... Read More
As a person who actually cried the day Sleater-Kinney announced their indefinite hiatus, I am constantly looking for new music to seriously rock out to. A girl can only listen to Live Through This so many times before her friends start to think she's losing it.
