Geek Girl Heaven

BY Sarah J. in Artsy |

I spent last weekend at the New York Comic Con, and as per usual, had a wonderful time. Comic cons might get a bad rap, but for me, they're just a place where people can unabashedly celebrate the things they love about comic books, sci-fi and fantasy, and more.Now the video games have taken over large chunks of the con floor, it's a little bit harder to get around, and Artist's Alley--the section of the floor where artists set up shop, sell prints, ...

Cute Overload!

BY Emily Rems in General |

Once upon a time there was a mom in France who realized her four-year-old daughter Capucine was totally awesome at telling stories, so she started video taping her and putting the clips on Vimeo for the world to enjoy. It didn't take long for net surfers to get totally obsessed with Capucine's stories - posting them all over the place, and that's when her mom had another great idea. Why not sell merch with quotes on it from Capucine's stories , and then donate the ... Read More
Everyone's been having fun hating on 'He's Just Not That Into You,' but I, for one, won't join in -- I'm just not that into hating on chick flicks (I've pointed out before that no one ever hates on dick flicks - like all those stupid video-game inspired films, etc). But at least that movie went to the theaters. Why is it that 'Spring Breakdown,' starring Amy Poehler, Parker Posey, Amber Tamblyn, and Rachel Dratch (who co-wrote the script!) has still not been ...

BUST's Movie Hall of Fame

BY Lisa in General |

For all the movies I've seen, there's a shit ton that I haven't. When Debbie found out the other day that I've never watched All About Eve, she nearly excommunicated me from the office until I could say that I had. Well, since we're on deadline she let me stick around but it got us talking about what films belong in BUST's Movie Hall of Fame. We started a list: All About Eve Sweet Charity Breakfast at Tiffany's Grey Gardens Mommie Dearest Nine to ... Read More

New Telepathe video!

BY Dawn in Music Stuff |

If these lovely ladies look familiar it's probably because you've seen them grace the pages of BUST Magazine. Busy and Melissa were models in last year's Feb/March fashion story. They've just released their newest record, and it's pretty awesome. You can read BUST's glowing review in the latest issue. They also have a slew of shows coming up. Check out Telepathe's myspace for all the ... Read More
I am totally TMZ'n over Frank Lloyd Wright every since one of my besties, Fabrisha Dankins of Drunky Brewster Fame, turned me onto Loving Frank, I think it was last summer. You probably are familiar with Wright's architecture but you may not know about his life, which should've totally been made into a movie by now, unless it already has been and I missed it. Not a documentary but a full blown Hollywood to-do. I suggest when they finally do adapt his life to big ... Read More

Handmade Nation

BY Susan in Artsy |

If you haven't heard of the incredible book Handmade Nation by now, then you are certainly missing out! Written by Faythe Levine and Cortney Heimerl published back in October, the book has since become a documentary capturing the burgeoning craft and DIY movement across America. Currently there are screenings across the country (and other countries), and this week the flick is debuting in the big apple. The premiere screening on Thursday is completely sold out, but ...

One Hot Mama

BY Team Intern in General |

Singer and style icon M.I.A. has done it yet again with her unique fashion sense.  Despite being nine months pregnant and ready to burst, M.I.A. kept her swagger while on stage alongside, Jay-Z, T.I., Lil Wayne and Kanye West at this years Grammy awards.  Between Kanye's ego and M.I.A.'s bump I was surprised there was enough room on the stage for everyone else.    I bet pregnant women across America are trying to figure out which maternity store ...

I've been on the side of Nadya Suleman ever since the story broke that the octoplet-baring woman was single, jobless, and already had 6 kids to take care of. Yes, it is irresponsible for her to have so many children that she can't provide for. Yes, it may have been irresponsible of the Fertility Doc to implant 6 embryos. But I don't like the idea of a fertility doctor making decisions about how many babies a woman should have -- no matter what her circumstances. ... Read More
