Oh, Margaret Cho! The first time I ever saw a BUST magazine, my friend held up a copy with Cho on the cover and told me, “You would love this.” Since Margaret went to my high school (briefly, anyway), and grew up in my hometown of San Francisco, I kinda feel like I grew up with her. Her never-ending career remains impressive, especially considering she always does her own raunchy, unique, non-typical famous lady thing. And now she's just gotten her ... Read More
Last Wednesday, the hilarious and equally unpredictable, Tracy Morgan appeared on The Tonight Show and proved exactly why we made him our April/May cover dude.    After telling Jay about how experiencing Colin Powell’s warm embrace moved him to tears, Tracy weighed in on the now infamous Gibson tapes.   “They’re selling like hot cakes in Compton,” he says.   [Actually, it turns out an album of 15 Mel-inspired ...

 Ok, I’ll admit this blog post is about three months overdue. Although, I’d argue that it’s really never too late to draw attention to a good movie or an awesome young female character.   So I’m just going to proceed.    Last night I ended up watching the movie Kick-Ass on bootleg. I had dismissed the film when it came out back in April due to its seemingly lame premise (high school comic-book nerd wants to be a ... Read More

Some Hump Day Humor

BY Nicole Finkbiner in Artsy |

A few weeks ago I stumbled across the blog, But You’re Like Really Pretty and instantly became a huge fan.   Each Wednesday, illustrator and site owner Ryan Casey, posts a hilariously mean webcomic featuring someone or something in pop culture that’s been a particular source of annoyance that week (example below).  Her illustrations are so good and so clever that the blog was recently nominated for a Webby and won the 2010 Bloggie ...

It’s a Wednesday afternoon and seeing as though you’ve chosen to neglect whatever it is that you should be doing, you could probably use a dose of some female-friendly humor.  So here’s an extended clip from the past season of Parks & Recreation.   In the episode, Leslie insists that the gals tag along on the department's annual boys-only hunting trip. It turns out, she's quite the skilled hunter and is able to catch the first quail ... Read More
Last week, Deadline.com announced that HBO is currently developing a comedy based on former Village Voice writer, Mara Altman’s memoir “Thanks for Coming: A Young Woman’s Quest For An Orgasm.”   As you can pretty much conclude from the title, the book follows Altman--an attractive a 26 year-old career woman living in New York who has never experienced The Big O--as she launches an entire investigation into getting ...

I feel as though I should start with a declaimer:  Content in this blog may be unsuitable for children. Actually, if you’re a girl under the age of 18, please don’t continue reading. I don’t want to be responsible for exposing an entire generation of young woman to this. So just go do your homework or something.    It’s unclear whether this dance move originated in Brazilian nightclubs or their bedrooms, but I can only assume ... Read More
Have you spent countless nights lying awake in bed wondering what exactly Andie MacDowell has been up to lately? If so, you can sleep easy tonight knowing that the actress and L’Oreal spokeswoman has actually been busy working to establish a new career in stand-up comedy. Ok, not really. But writer, producer, and BUST contributor, Jill Soloway teamed up with Michaela Watkins (the hilarious comedienne that SNL inexplicably cut after only one season) to give ... Read More
If you're tired of being type-cast in your previous comedy classes just 'cuz you're a girl, this is the class for you! Magnet Theater will be offering "Lady Party", a four-week, girls-only, improv class starting Saturday, June 19. Lady Party  specializes in the female perspective of humor and is taught by Magnet's very own Megan Gray.  The class requires participants to have previously taken Magnet's Level One course, or an equivalent.   Lady ...

This is one really awesome little girl. I  admire her enthusiasm. I don't think I could muster up nearly as much energy in the morning to be that positive.  Let's just hope she remains as confident and assertive through puberty.  You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this video   I CAN DO ANYTHING ...
