Good boob tube news: Amanda Cohen, chef and owner of the East Village all-vegetarian standout Dirt Candy, will be competing this Sunday against Masaharu Morimoto himself in what may in fact be the first ever all-vegetarian contest in Iron Chef history. You may remember Amanda's name from an earlier post on recognizing women in the professional kitchen. And if you don't, that's totally cool because no one needs an excuse to watch the glory of Iron ... Read More

I used to really love Weezer back in the day, their first album is one of my all time favorites, but in the last, 5 or 6 years or so, I really could not get with the syrupy pop/anthem stuff, just wasn't working for me. But the new single, Memories, from their forthcoming album Hurley, out on September 14th (on Epitaph) is really fun and hearkens back to the old school Weezer we know and love. The song is all about the 90's, so us old folks can relate! Plus, who can ... Read More

Remember when Kathryn Bigelow won an Oscar and for a minute, the whole world was talking about women directing films? It’s not a bad issue to return to, considering that female voices are still notably, even shockingly, absent in our theaters. At the end of 2009, Indiewire published a set of dismal statistics regarding women in film over this last decade (the 00’s)—in ... Read More

I keep hearing on the news that the reign of cupcakes in the fad-food hierarchy is finally coming to an end. And while I think that the idea of trendy food is kind of dumb, I couldn't help being intrigued by an article which predicts that "Popsicles" and frozen treats will the next big thing.
The "Popsicle" was invented on accident in 1905 when an eleven year old accidentally left water, powdered soda and a stick outside on a cold night. Since then, the food, ... Read More

I cracked up when I saw this link to a spread in GQ where some of our favorite movie star dudes let it all hang out.Photographed by pal and BUST contributor, Danielle Levitt, we have Michael Cera, Jason Schwartzman, and Chris Evans lettin' it blow in the breeze in their photo shoot promoting the Scott Pilgrim movie. I'm not sure if the actual magazine has the bits blurred out or not, I guess I'm just gonna have to take a trip to my local newsstand and find out. ... Read More
Day one. Adriana and I caught the 7:20am Amtrak to San Diego. Before reaching the entrance to the convention, we collected enough schwag to cloth a classroom full of Scott Pilgrim fans. I must admit the first day can be overwhelming. It's very hard for the brain to process a fantasy realm come to life. Seeing Ewoks in the bathroom and then meeting the cast of Star Trek the Next Generation was enough to make me wonder if I was on the holodeck. Can't wait for ... Read More

I’ve been following No Country for Young Women on Twitter for a while—the account is a great source of news about women with a career focus—information about things like wage gap research, sexual harassment law, and other feministy work issues. The other day I finally decided to check out their website, which turned out to be a multimedia art project of women telling their stories and how they are negotiating the competing demands of their lives. ...

At this week's Converse: Three Artists, One Song show in Brooklyn, there were incredible mash-up performances by Kid Cudi, Rostam Batmanglij from Vampire Weekend, and Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast. The unlikely combination of sweet ballad singing, rapping, and poppy/punky guitar playing made for an incredible summer song that anyone would love, and should push "California Gurls" out of the water. Don't believe me? Listen to "All Summer" below.
You need ... Read More

Ladies, apparently we’ve been consuming delicious sugary treats without stopping to consider guy's feelings.
Even worse, we’ve been tainting them with our cutesy designs and confections.
But now thanks to the New York cupcake company Butch Bakery, men can satisfy their sugar tooth without having to jeopardize their masculinity.
Owner David Arrick refuses to serve anything that looks remotely like the "frilly, pink-frosted, ... Read More

Did reading last issue's Riot Girl History by Marisa Meltzer make you nostalgic for days of yore? Or maybe you've been reading the Bikini Kill archive, and are suddenly possessed by the desire to share your own feminist punk rock story? Get our your Sharpie and your camera so you can contribute to "Soul Revolution," a video installation that's being created in conjunction with Girls to the Front, Sarah Marcus's book about her own riot grrrl experience. (Yes, ... Read More
