While I can't actually decide how I feel about Charlie Sheen's recent public appearances, I think we can all agree that he's given us some pretty notable quotables in interviews. Subversive Cross Stitch, friends of BUST, have turned some of his lines into darling-looking little cross stitch patterns, which you can check out below and buy online here! I think this counts as ... Read More
After over a year of interning at BUST, I am finally bowing out. One of my favorite things about this internship has been compiling all the cute things on the internet to bring to you, the awesome blog readers. So, for my last day, I figured I'd post my own two furry felines, Nip (on the right in the picture up there) and Scout (on the left). Post your own pets in the comments, I'd love to see ... Read More
A news story has been making the rounds about an 11-year-old girl who was gang-raped by a group of males in a small town in Texas. Eighteen young men and boys have been arrested in connection with the case, which would seem like justice is starting to be served, but The New York Times has begun to go ahead and undermine it! An article by James C. McKinley Jr., posted yesterday on the NYT's website, includes such choice quotes like "These boys have to live with this ... Read More
I've recently become addicted to the show Parks and Recreation on NBC, and most of my obsession comes from the libertarian Parks Department's head, Ron Swanson, played by Nick Offerman. (A gem from Swanson in the 3rd season's premiere episode: "Capitalism: God's way of determining who is smart and who is poor.") So when I was linked to the Tumblr Cats That Look Like Ron Swanson this week, it was like the fusing of all of my favorite things: television, cats, and ... Read More
I'm one of those people who puts a lot of stock in my idols. Perhaps I'm just impressionable, but I look for people to look up to in a lot of places. I've blogged recently about my disappointment with Tina Fey (or, rather, the writers of 30 Rock) and Ben Roethlisberger and now I have another to add to my list: 74-time Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings.I am secretly 70, so Jeopardy! is one of my favorite shows on television. Ken Jennings' record-setting appearance was ... Read More
Sometimes, I kind of worry that the United States is reaching the end times. Working toward defunding major women's health organizations? Arresting senators that refuse to show up lest a bill designed to hurt workers be passed? What on earth is going on here? Sometimes I just want to cry. But the internet always comes through for me; this time in the form of a new tumblr called Keep Your Boehner Out Of My Uterus. Sometimes the only thing that works to keep ... Read More
Dear Lemon Lima, Suzi Yoonessi's feature-length directorial debut, is possibly the cutest movie I've ever seen. The movie centers around a young Alaskan girl, Vanessa, who transfers schools to get her ex-boyfriend to notice her again. There, she meets and befriends a group of lovable social outcasts, and they form a team in hopes to win the school's "Snowstorm Survivor" competition. The setup is formulaic, perhaps, but Yoonessi's script takes it past cliché ... Read More
On March 8th, 2011, thousands of men and women will meet on bridges as part of the "Join Me on the Bridge" campaign in 29 countries to show that there can be no sustainable peace unless the voices of women are heard. It will be more than a powerful statement: March 8th is also International Women's Day, so hopefully the two together will create a dialogue about what we can do to help women both in places of conflict and at home. Women for Women International run ... Read More
When my cats are starved for attention, they can get obnoxious and just start rubbing up against anything possible. This adorable feline takes matters into its own hands (paws?) and rubs against all the stairs on its trip down. Youtube user maho12m has a whole slew of videos of this cute kitty slinking down the stairs, and you can check you my favorites after the jump!   You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this video You need to a flashplayer ...
