It’s music festival season, and while you might have already braved the Porta Potties at some of the better-known U.S. events, there’s one gem that might’ve escaped your attention. The Festival d’éte de Quebec (the Quebec Summer Festival, for those of you who didn’t show up to high school French class) is happening as we speak in Canada, that health-insurance-having, glorious area north of Vermont. I attended the first few days ... Read More
  In 1999, I was living in Tokyo, doing a study abroad program and having the time of my and several other people's lives. During the day I stuffed myself into subway cars to explore foreign neighborhoods, and I walked the streets at night, drinking bottled cocktails (Jeebus bless you Japan, for your lax open-container laws and inventive portable booze options) and taking photos of all the odd or amazing things I saw, which was pretty much everything. I had ... Read More
  We’re gearing up for some seriously warm, no-tights-under-your-dress weather, but most of us are still nowhere near abandoning our jackets. That’s where sweatshirts come in—the only item of clothing I happily own that has the word “sweat” in the title. But the latest versions hitting the stores have come a long way from the oversized gray Champion numbers you were probably sporting in middle school. Here are some of my top picks ... Read More
What do NFL locker rooms and a mobile clinic doling out “Free Prostate Exams!” have in common? They’re all places where you’re unlikely to find women. And that’s unsurprising and fine, but the creator of the genius Tumblr 100PercentMen has blown my mind grapes by pointing out other places where women have yet to tread. And though I’m well-versed in Infuriating Woman’s Issues News, even I had to gasp at some of ... Read More
  A few months back, a radio show contacted BUST to ask if one of our staffers would be interested in going on air to discuss misogyny in the James Bond series. A loud cricket noise echoed throughout the office—nobody had watched more than one or two of the flicks. That is, nobody but me. See, I’ve watched nearly every James Bond movie ever made, aside from some of the ones during the Roger Moore years (thumbs-down, no thank you). I’ve also ... Read More
Everybody's imaginary best friend, Solange, just released a vid for her single "Lovers in the Parking Lot", and it's just as good as you'd hoped it'd be. In it, she shows off some pretty serious 90s fashions (hello and holy shit, light-up shoelaces) while she wanders around a semi-abandoned Houston mall. Suffice to say, nobody's ever made dancing around an abandoned mall seem like so much fun. The track is a retro R&B number that's already begun to wedge ... Read More
 At some point during last weekend’s AfroPunk fest in Brooklyn, I realized that I was in the midst of greatness. It wasn’t the killer food trucks, on-point bands, or fantastic craft vendors that were making my jaw drop, though: it was the crowd. I’ve been to more than my fair share of outdoor summer festivals, and AfroPunk (which bills itself as “a platform for the other Black experience”) had some of the best-dressed, happiest ... Read More
 Recently, a PR person asked me if I’d be interested in trying a new pair of orthopedic sandals. I was super into it, of course—my love of comfort footwear is long and abiding. I was a die-hard Birkenstock fan long before the fashionable crowd embraced them, and yo, Imma let you finish, but I’ve been wearing Worishofers since the only place to buy them in NYC was at an elderly-person specialty store. But when my Wellrox sandals came in the ... Read More
I spent a good chunk of my weekend partying at the Governors Ball, the 3-day NYC music festival that featured performances by Icona Pop, Azealia Banks, Dirty Projectors, and Ms Mr. (And some semi-unknown dude musicians called Guns n’ Roses, Nas, Kings of Leon, and Kendrick Lamar.) And while I had an awesome time eating food on sticks and getting mild sun damage, I and all the other festival attendees had to contend with one especially annoying festival ... Read More
 As a self-identified geek and longtime Music-Obsessed Human, I’ve tried more than my fair share of headphones. Nobody wants to spend all their dang beer money on a crazy-fancy pair, but I’m definitely willing to shell out a bit of cash for quality sound and good construction that’ll withstand some abuse. I’ve tried everything from the ultra-cheap earbuds at Best Buy to massive 1960s-era Pioneer headphones (thanks, eBay!), but ... Read More
