In case you’ve never heard of it, Into the Woods is basically the best musical ever.  Literally.  It is a work of genius born from the genius of the ever-magnificent Stephen Sondheim and bestowed upon our world as a heavenly gift. Just to be clear, I’ve never actually seen it performed live on Broadway. I have, however, seen a film of its original, 1987 Broadway run (which featured total legend, Bernadette Peters as the witch).  ... Read More
  In the immortal words of TLC, a scrub is a guy who "hangs out the passenger side of his best friends ride trying to holler at me" (us). I'd like to add an addendum to this sage lyric: a scrub is also a guy that doesn’t only holler out of the window of a car, but even just when a lady is walking down the street. I’ve always wondered what goes through these annoying sickos' heads when they yell things like “Ay, mami,” or “C'mon, ... Read More
Jenny Lewis’ new album The Voyager dropped yesterday. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. We reported on the amazing moustache-filled cross-dressing wonderment that was her music video for “One of the Guys,” starring our ladyloves Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway and Brie Larson, but the day is finally here. THE ALBUM HAS DROPPED. Former Rilo Kiley front woman Jenny Lewis has produced her third solo album in six years — a perfectly polished musical ... Read More
Brand new country duo Maddie & Tae are calling out the crazy-high levels of sexism in the music genre known as “Bro Country”—the hyper-masculine, woman-objectifying trope that has come to dominate modern country music. They use their new song, “Girl in a Country Song” to point out the ridiculousness of portraying every woman as an overly sexual yet faceless being.  The lyrics are pretty great:  “I hear you over ...

Quoth the Raveonettes, “Give me more,” and they are doing just that. The Raveonettes released their new album Pe’Ahi earlier this week and it’s safe to say this haunting dreamy album is the perfect soundtrack for your transition from summer to fall, especially the single “Summer Ends.”(trigger warning: don't watch this video if you are prone to photosensitive epilepsy). They just released new lyric videos for a few of ... Read More
Recently for a Funny or Die video, actress Kristen Bell played a pissed off Mary Poppins. While her accent was a little off, she hit the mark precisely in the message of the video, which was that the minimum wage is not a living wage. Now, if you put aside the fact that Mary Poppins would be living in the UK, where the 2013 minimum wage was £6.31 (about $10.70), and the fact that the movie took place in 1910, our favorite nanny is facing a major issue ...

From riot grrrl trailblazer in the band Sleater-Kinney to sketch comedy genius on Portlandia, Carrie Brownstein has been cranking out pop culture gems since 1994. Here, the Jill-of-all-trades opens up about fame, Fred, and driving traffic to her fave feminist bookstore. By Lisa Butterworth    Navy silk top by Wren, wrenstudio.com; Perspex necklace by The Way We Wore, thewaywewore.com The last time I was in the same room with Carrie Brownstein it was ... Read More
The Satanic Temple (TST) is asking the SCOTUS for the same religious protections and exemptions it gave Hobby Lobby.  This is a win for people with uteruses living under the new Informed Consent laws that 35 states have now enacted. Can a corporation have a religion, and then use said religion to weasel out of providing its employees the healthcare they deserve?  Absolutely!  Can actual human beings use religion to avoid parts of the law that they ...

  There I was, sitting outside on my lunch break, drinking a violently green-colored juice BECAUSE I AM HEALTHY and eating a Toblerone BECAUSE I AM SOMETIMES HEALTHY watching a young mother chase her ginger-haired kid around a cluster of potted plants. I could hear her voice rising as both her temper and the child began to get away from her, and I briefly wondered if I should help her snatch the boy before some roving kidnapper did. Then I remembered I am ... Read More
Tuesdays are slowly becoming our favorite day of the week here at BUST for one important reason: Tasty Tuesdays! “We try out weird foods so that you don’t have to!" In our second installment, we tasted a not so well-known flavor of a favorite snack: Matcha Green Tea Pocky.    Caelan While growing up as a fan of Matcha, I can't deny that it taste sorta like something that would get stuck to Frodo's foot while trecking to Middle Earth on ...
