Absolutely Strange

BY Laurie in General |

It seems we've done it again. Taken a British comedy classic and Americanized it (The Office, Posh and David Beckham) This time we set our target on the British sitcom Absolutely Fabulous (or Ab Fab if you are a real fan). If you have not seen this show, please watch it right now.... but only if you are a fan of immature, chain-smoking, alcoholic, fashion-obsessed, fame-hungry, middle-aged ladies who live in London. I was concerned the first time I heard about ... Read More
This was one of my favorite movies growing up, I even remember the soft white light bulb commercials that came on when she was falling down the hole. Ringo Starr and Sammy Davis Jr kill it, plus Scott Baio is adorbs! Does anyone else remember this? Bread and Butter! Carol Channing terrified me as the White Queen. Check it: Start watching the entire thing after the ... Read More

Tonight my girl Nicola, (of Droopy Knickers fame), and I went to Comix to see our favorite Jersey mom impersonator and BUST Boy du Jour John Roberts. I was totally psyched when she told me he was performing, but when I found out that Margaret Cho was on the bill as well, I kind of freaked out. So we get to the show, totally amped, and who jumps on stage to start the set? None other than Flight of the Conchords darling, Kristen Schall! She was beyond adorable ... Read More

Blu Blockers

BY Laurie in General |

All of this Snuggie talk reminds me of one of the greatest commercial response raps ever, the one here for BluBlockers. If you spent any time in the 80's watching late night TV, you'll probably remember BluBlockers, they were really big unisex sunglasses that were supposed to block out the sun in some miraculous way, sadly I do not own a pair. They really should bring them back, I think they would do very well with the williamsburg crowd. Anyway this dude MC Dr. ... Read More

EFF YES, GIRLSCHOOL!

BY Mollie Wells in General |

Every time I go on a VH-1 Classic kick (i.e. every weekend), I come away with some new obsession that annoys the crap out of my friends--like the time I meowed (yes, meowed) Dio's Holy Diver for three straight days. This weekend, thanks to a Metal Mania marathon and new music project that kept me shuttered away with my bandmates, I re-discovered Girlschool, a group of old-school metal chicks best known for their association with fellow Brits Motorhead. These girls ... Read More
The Bust office loves the snuggie. The above video by Mikey and Big Bob, DJs of Pittsburgh's Kiss 96.1 Freaks Morning Show, best illustrates why. Recently the New York Magazine fashion blog hosted a petty tirade against the hottest new revolution in lounge wear. I find their chief accusation, 'that the snuggie is not an item of apparel ' to be narrow minded and pompous. The NY mag commentators maintain that snuggies are an eyesore in public and should only be ... Read More

That looks familar

BY Erin Wengrovius in General |

This design look familiar because this guy is everywhere. His name is Mike Perry and he is having an art show! The exhibit is called Found in Space and it will be held at Giant Robot from March 17th until April 8th. The opening reception is this Saturday (March 7th from 6:30 - 10). Mike Perry is one of my heros... though his designs look simple they are harder to create then they look... trust me my friends, I've tried. He really walks the line between high ... Read More
There are a few vodkas that are so good you don't really even want a mixer, Tito's Handmade is totally one of them. 12 years ago, Bert “Tito” Beveridge obtained the first permit ever issued to distill in Texas and racked up 19 credit cards to finance his handmade vodka dream. These days, Tito's Handmade Vodka is the fastest growing spirit brand in the America thanks to some very powerful word of mouth from people like you! It continues to win the most ... Read More
