There are a whole lot of reasons to love BUST darling and comedian extraordinaire Mike Birbiglia. But chalk up one more for his new movie Sleepwalk With Me. Based on his one-man show of the same name, and produced by This American Life heartthrob Ira Glass, we at BUST HQ have been excited about this movie for a while. (Don’t believe us? Check out our interview with Birbiglia in our August/September issue and our blog posts on him and his movie.)This movie ... Read More

Sometimes us Americans like to think that we’re the ones who don’t have accents. However, in this popular short film, "How Americans Sound to British People", it seems that we most definitely do...and our accents are pretty gnarly. The comments on the video are pretty much half “what the f are they saying?!” and half “OMG, this is brilliant.” I agree--aside from “shut up” and a few swear ... Read More

We love the Feminist Ryan Gosling blog so very much, but now there’s a new feminist meme in town-- one that centers around President Obama.
In light of the many recent Republican attacks on women, we're particularly loving Obama's comments in favor of women's reproductive rights. Nerve.com has turned some of the best quotes into fantastic "Hey Girl" images (essentially, actual Obama quotes preceded by, "Hey girl").
He’s also pointed ... Read More

The London Olympics are coming to a close. After all that excitement and preparation, it’s pretty crazy that it’ll be done in just a few days. Luckily, we saw some amazing athletes rise to the occasion and they’re bringing back a lot of gold to America.
While those Olympic athletes were giving every competition their all, they were also giving us some enormous laughs, albeit unintentionally. Here are the best internet sensations, memes and ... Read More
Living in a generation of Photoshop, fat-shaming, and stick-thin models, it sometimes seems nearly impossible to imagine a time when "skinny" was a bad word. That’s why we couldn’t help but wonder if we'd stumbled into some sort of alternate universe when we discovered these vintage advertisements for weight gain. Even though these (admittedly hilarious) taglines were still putting too much emphasis on weight in relation to self-worth (the company ... Read More

Some of you in the NYC area may have noticed Amy Poehler at the 92Y on our Hot Dates calendar a few weeks ago, and hopefully a lucky few were able to catch the Parks and Recreation funny lady crack some jokes and talk about the importance of improv comedy to her life and her career, how much she loves her Parks and Rec castmates, (hint: she'd both take a bullet for them and sleep with them), and that time she played Dorothy in a 4th grade production ...

The masterminds behind the "Call Me Maybe" Barack Obama remix are at it again, this time using the smooth stylings of Justing Bieber's "If I Was Your Boyfriend." Let the president serenade you in this cut together video. Although he cannot really be your boyfriend (Michelle would probably be ticked), you can wonder as to what the president would really do as your man.Would he sit by the fire with you and eat fondue like the Biebz? Fly you to Hawaii to show you ... Read More
Today is the day when my personal favorite and BUST-featured deadpan actress extraordinaire was born: Aubrey Plaza. In honor of her day of birth, here's a playlist of clips that detail what I think Aubrey's doing on her birthday.

First, Aubrey is probably going to receive a lot of gifts from other people. But if there's one lesson that her show Parks and Recreation taught us, it's this: treat yo ... Read More
Summer in the city is perfect for bicycle rides to work or to the park. The wind gets all breezy and you’re going so quickly you don’t have to worry about weird extended eye contact with anyone. I didn’t think bike rides could get much better, until I saw Ninian Doff’s short, “A Professional Display of No Handed Bike Moves.” Set to the infectious song “Golden Tree” by Martin Brooks, a few experienced lady and gent ...

Timeless Seasons is a new shopping network that has all of the products you could ever dream up: powerful pepper grinders, convenient teeth whiteners, portable entertainment systems, and more! Except the grinder makes flatulence sounds when you twist it, the whiteners kind of turn you into a zombie, and the entertainment tablet causes high-pitched interferences. In fact, it isn’t a shopping network at all. Timeless Seasons is a comedy trio of three funny ... Read More
