Help At Your Cervix!

BY Dawn in General |

At Your Cervix is a documentary film in progress exploring the connection between pelvic exams and the reality that most women experience them as painful and disempowering. The film breaks the silence around the unethical methods used by medical schools to teach students how to perform pelvic exams; the most egregious being on unconsenting, anesthetized women. The filmmakers need funds to finish this film, and you can help!!! At Your Cervix is currently one of ... Read More

Spray on Condoms!?

BY Laurie in General |

Stop me if you've heard this one before. 'I can't find a condom that fits me...so lets just not worry about it.' In an effort to give every dude a snug fit, German sex- ed teacher Jan Vinzenz Krause is working on developing a spray on condom. 'The prototype, which began testing last year, consists of a hard plastic tube with nozzles that spray liquid latex from all directions, much like the water jets in the tunnel of a car wash.' Unfortunately the prototype is ... Read More

The Tiddy Bear!!!

BY Dawn in General |

About a year ago I saw this infomercial and was confused, intrigued, but also completely amused. I had forgotten about it until recently when former 'tern, Alison F. reminded me of it's weirdness. But although this commercial seems strange, it is not a joke! For too many years, drivers and passengers have suffered from the stiffness of their seat belts cutting into their shoulders. This has been a serious problem, and thank goodness somebody has finally come up ... Read More

15-Year Party Wrap Up!

BY Dawn in General |

Thank you to everyone who joined BUST in blowing out the birthday candles with us at our 15-Year Anniversary Party! I can't explain the venue, Spiegelworld, as anything but breath-taking. With a full180 degree  view of Manhattan and Brooklyn, the waterfront setting that was complete with hammocks, cabanas, an outdoor dance floor, and 3 circus tents (!!!) was absolutely unbelievable.JD Samson (MEN/Le Tigre) got things started right on the turntables. As ... Read More

Apocalipstix!

BY Sarah J. in General |

The Apocalipstix will rock you. A slam-bam postapocalyptic action-hero fantasy for girls, one part Tank Girl and one part Josie and the Pussycats, it's the story of a band who manages to survive World War III and sets off on the road trip to end all road trips in search of the necessities of life--food, shelter, and roaring crowds. Writer Ray Fawkes neatly turns rock'n'roll stereotypes on their heads, giving the girls the phallic symbols--guitars and guns--and ... Read More
One of the most unconventional female artists of the 20th century, Lee Miller was admired for her classical beauty, intelligence, and photographic talent. This retrospective showing now at the SF Moma spans her career as a photographer and explores her transformation from muse and model to groundbreaking artist in her own right. Born in New York in 1907, Miller modeled for Vogue before meeting Man Ray in Paris in 1929. Inspired by his work, Miller began creating ... Read More

Quentin, why?

BY Laurie in General |

The gossip around here today is 1. why is Quentin Tarantino remaking "Faster Pussycat, Kill Kill?" Thats like remaking Citizen Kane! And to make matters worse, (2) he's casting Britney Spears as Varla? WTF? Cmon, I know its hard to find actresses in Hollywood who actually have tits and ladylike curves, but puhleese. Russ Meyer is probably rolling over in his porn filled grave as we speak. Emily would cast Chynna Doll, but I don't know, she looks like a ... Read More

Dolly's quote of the day

BY Laurie in General |

Our favorite busty gal was sticking up for Britney and Lindsay at her concert in Los Angels last night, in a show of solidarity for the tabloid twosome,  Parton was quoted as saying,  “Poor little Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan. Ain't it awful? If those little girls slept with as many men as they say in the tabloids, why their little butts would have more fingerprints than the FBI!" and "I kinda feel sorry for them. We should give those ... Read More
