Halloween Hot or Not

BY Team Intern in General

One week. No. LESS than one week remains before Halloween, the one time out of the year when you can wear nearly anything you want and no one gives you grief. Unless your costume is boring. Which is why BUST is here. Something scary? Something clever? Something to top last year? Figuring out a good costume can be rough, 'specially when most Google searches result in 1,000 listings for 'Slutty [insert profession, animal, fictional character here]'. So for all y'all ...

'Roid Rage Returns!

BY Web Intern in General

When Polaroid canned its famous instant film last year, there wasn't a hipster, nor modeling agency, nor mall Santa photographer that didn't bemoan the loss. Sure it's expensive. Sure digital is faster/cleaner/crisper. But even in this age of boundless technology, there's nothing quite as fascinating as whatever magic makes a face peek out from behind Polaroid's square of brown mystery goo. And now, over a year after our fave film was said to be gone for good, ... Read More

What the...? Really?

If you don't feel as close as you'd like to Edward Cullen, well, you can get one step closer to him being face to face with...your crotch. There are some mighty obsessed fans out there but I never thought the day when they could wear Cullen panties would come! Maybe I should buy these for my Twilight-fanatic friends for a little chuckle... nicole! Photo courtesy of robpattison.blogspot.com ... Read More
I have never read a Sweet Valley High book but Francine Pascal's Fearless series, on the other hand, well, I read them all. Why am I all nostalgic today about a female crime fighter? When I came in to the BUST office today, a double edition (books 1 and 25) of the series was sitting within my reach! How did it get here? Who the hell knows?! While gazing over the cover, story-lines involving Gaia and her kickass martial arts skills all came back to me. I remember ... Read More

Oh Octomom...

Check out this pic of a (Halloween) decked out Octomom, aka Nadya Suleman, with her clan. Does anyone else find this somewhat kooky? nicole! Photo courtesy of the New York ... Read More
Our friend Michael sent this over, and it is precisely why I love YouTube so much. Not only do we get to peruse our favorite year in fashion, 1968, but I now have a new musical obsession: the way out sounds of one Mr. Mort Garson, an electronic composer. ... Read More
These past few weeks have presented two different kinds of swarms: ladybugs, (there is literally one stuck in my hair as I type this,) and skinny attractive people carrying instrument cases who are here touring as part of the CMJ Music Marathon. It’s hard to choose which bands to leave the house for, but a few have such a loud buzz surrounding them that you feel compelled to go sniff them out for yourself. One of those bands is Brunswick, New ... Read More
Edited by David Henry Sterry and R.J. Martin, JR. Soft Skull Press In these dark days of brokedom, who amongst us hasn't lingered a bit too long in the Etc. section of the Craigslist job postings? I mean, I do have dainty feet with nicely trimmed toenails, and if I could make my rent just by stepping on some random businessman's face, well who's to judge?? Granted, I am not brave enough (or hard up enough) to go through with such an evening's work (just yet), ... Read More

Review: Antichrist

BY Jenni in General

Lars von Trier, the director who so famously tormented Bjork in Dancer in the Dark that she swore she'd quit acting forever, was booed and jeered at at Cannes for Antichrist. People even laughed at the private screening I attended with some of my fellow BUSTies. Antichrist has been censured as misogynist, and, to a lesser extent, as if somehow this is a lesser crime, pretentiously laughable. And while, yes, I did laugh at some over von Trier's over-the-top scenes ... Read More
