Folk Yeah!

BY Vanessa in Music Stuff |

The music video begins rather innocently: two pretty girls, a tall blonde with a guitar and a petite brunette with a ukulele, smile sweetly and sing an ode to blossoming romance. “And like can lead to like-like/And like-like can lead to looove,” they coo. “Sure as the stars above/I’d really like to fuck you, fuck you, fuck you.” Oh! But that’s as raunchy as it gets; the comedy folk duo, who go by the name Garfunkel & Oates, ... Read More
The actual festival is called Honen Matsuri. Celebrated every March 15 in Komaki, a town about 45 minutes north of Nagoya, Japan. This is the time of year where folks haul out a large wooden penis to give three cheers to fertility and renewal.  The custom is an old one that is connected to bringing about a good harvest and having babies.  I have nothing against a giant penis.  I love a giant penis. But I love my lady parts, too. Breasts and vagina ... Read More
In a recent interview, Demi Moore talked about her upcoming birthday (she'll be 47 tomorrow), the lack of well-written movie roles that come her way, and her hatred of the term "cougar," which she has become the poster-woman for ever since she started seeing the sixteen-years-younger Ashton Kutcher.  Why, she asks, is she singled out for her relationship to a younger man when she has obviously not been the first famous woman to do this? And why the use of the ... Read More

Best Pageant Ever!

BY Intern nicole! in General |

  If I had a living grandmother, I would totally want her to enter the eighth annual "Your Highness Grandmother" Pageant taking place in Brooklyn on November 15th. For this year's pageant, talents range from the typical singing and dancing to performing yoga techniques and playing the accordion. If the thought of grandmother's showcasing their talents doesn't lure you in, the ladies will also be going back in time and will model their most interesting outfits ... Read More
If you're in the mood for an evening featuring tasty vegan treats from Terry Hope Romero (it's the Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar dude!), music galore, a raffle supporting a worthy cause (the Sylvia Rivera Law Project), and DJs dishing beats for a night of endless dancing, then hey, Hartzveytik: A Heartbreak Survival Society Social might be for you. On November 14th at Southpaw in Brooklyn, you have the chance to see acts such as Soft Power (with Mary ... Read More

Well, Duh!

BY Intern nicole! in General |

According to the New York Times, even bachelors are having a hard time these days, so much so that they are having to downsize their bachelor pads and move into...smaller apartments in still-hip parts of NYC such as Soho! For a pricey city such as New York, yes, having to downsize can be a tad bit embarrassing, especially if you're used to living a somewhat glamorous life full of swinging parties where you can make passes at attractive ladies. But in an economic ... Read More
A few weeks ago, before Intern Anna left our presence here at BUST HQ, she had a status update on Facebook that left me stunned: 'edward skizrhands is probably the only good tim burton movie' Whaaaaaaaaa? Anna and I had a discussion about it later and she corrected herself, saying that Big Fish was also another good Burton film. What about Batman? Beetle Juice? Frankenweenie? Pee-Wee's Big Adventure? Ed Wood? For a Tim Burton aficionado like myself, reading ... Read More
If you're a fan of absurd comedies that have no general direction, sets that look as though they were created by kids with a fondness for construction paper, somewhat darling puppets that can be a bit kooky, and a host who is eerily similar to Charlyne Yi, I think you'll appreciate the IFC-mini Food Party. Now, I haven't actually seen full episodes of this new comedy, which supposedly only run 10 or so minutes in length, but from what I've taken a gander at on the ... Read More

Her Name Is Reno

BY debbie in Boob Tube |

On last night's Mad Men finale, there was talk of Betty Draper taking a quick trip to Reno. Why would she go there? What would she do there? Well, if you didn't see the episode, don't read the rest of this post, as it contains a spoiler, but if you did, you should read on, as we've got the inside scoop on Betty's little trip, as well as an entire article in our upcoming issue that can tide you over until the next season of Mad Men arrives...   Back in the ...

Oh Julian Casablancas, I am so incredibly happy/giddy/gaga that you have decided to take a break from The Strokes and give your sexy drawl a space of its own. Casablancas just released his first solo album last week and word on the street is that this new work, Phrazes For The Young, is pretty nifty. I've already listened to the first single, '11th Dimension' and yowzas, this song is my new obsession. I could never understand it when people could listen to a song ... Read More
