I knew my day was going to be good when, immediately upon my arrival to work, I learned that I could spend three minutes and 44 seconds of my morning watching Kelly Hogan (A.K.A. Chewbacca) and Neko Case (a Princess Leia/Spock fusion) sing to me and Ellie Kemper about “a revolution to your hairless post-apocalyptic constitution”—a new vision of the future fueled by “girl power… an actual fuel source with zero carbon ...

I know you might be trying to forget some of your horrible 90s-fashion-inspired moments, like how you wore a massive rasta hat or almost got a tattoo of a daisy inside a yin yang on your shoulder. But there *are* some things about the 90s that are worth remembering, and we're not just talking about Clueless. Take, for example, 90s rock band 4 Non Blondes-- the group behind the megahit single "What's Up." The band had a one-time reunion this past weekend, at ... Read More

Get ready for it; we’re about to see a bunch of white males scrambling for the Late Show spot now that David Letterman has announced his retirement. The current top contenders include Jon Stewart, Jay Leno, Craig Ferguson, and Conan O’Brien. *yawn*
Men have traditionally hosted late night television because of the outdated gendered blocking of Television viewing times. Daytime television has no shortage of female hosts because daytime TV's assumed ... Read More

The take-no-prisoners comedy queen Margaret Cho is raising the bar on badass again, by getting a portrait of herself...wait for it...painted in her own blood. We girls know blood preeeetty well, and although it can sometimes make us want to gag, it's nothing to be afraid of, and it's inside us all!This whole thing might freak some people out, as seen in the video below, wherein you can watch one weirdo experience the exact moment when he's bitten off more ...

Margaret Cho has been brought on to co-star in Tina Fey's upcoming sitcom about a women's college going co-ed.Cho, the hilarious and brilliant comedian, will play Laura Thibault, the college president responsible for the new inclusivity. Apparently, Thibault is a "divisive figure on campus" (a.k.a probably a badass) struggling with her decision to bring on the men, as she is easily frustrated with their boyish ridiculousness.
I smell a new ... Read More

Whew! We had quite a time this past Thursday at the 20th birthday celebration of BUST. There were loads of amazing ladies and dudes who rolled out to help us get down and have a good ol' time. We laughed, we cried, we danced, we ate cupcakes. It was an incredible, unforgettable experience (for at least this BUSTie) and it reminded us of how much BUST changed our lives and why we love it so, so much. (Sorry for the cheese, but it was kind of a big deal.) We're ... Read More

Margaret Cho is the queen of our hearts. Seriously, this past BUSTie can do no wrong. In addition to her comedy touring, filming Drop Dead Diva, and making appearances on everything from xoJane to The View, Margaret has taken on a new and original web-series.
Cho is partnering up with two other fantastic ladies, who I totally fantasize about inviting over to play Cards Against Humanity and get day drunk with me: Selene Luna and Yvette ... Read More

While everyone in NYC was attending various CMJ shows and events last week, I was fortunate enough to be visiting Paris. Which was amazing beyond words. The city, the food, the wine, and the people: all c'est magnifique! But no cool rock shows, mes amis. One of the things that saved my evenings from CSI and Bewitched reruns dubbed in French was stand-up comic Margaret Cho, who was performing in town as part of her current tour, MOTHER.
In a little club ... Read More

People still remember Mickey Avalon, right? Anyone who’s experienced the lyrical genius on display in his hit song “My Dick” could never forget him. And don’t even try to deny it, we know every time the song comes up on shuffle in the car you’re singing/yelling along. Our excuse is that the vulgarity is so bad that it’s almost good.We can all agree that this was a song made to be parodied, and there have been attempts in the ... Read More
