Every summer we are treated to a slew of supposed blockbusters specifically designed to knock off socks, or at the very least, give us somewhere cool and dark to sit for twoish hours. Certainly this season will be no different, judging from Hollywood’s attempts to revive The Karate Kid, Predators, Cats and Dogs (…?), the Toy Story franchise (!!), and The A-Team (which, I have to admit, just will not be the same without Mr. T…Bradley Cooper or ...

"Sex and the City 2" has had a lot of criticism and harsh reviews since it's release not even 36 hours ago. NPR's "The Takeway" contributor Rafer Guzman says SATC2 is bad for men and women because of it's unrealistic portrayal of, well, everything. BUST's own Emily Rems defends the SATC franchise, highlighting the importance (and feminist perspective) of women's friendships in the show and movies. Go Emily!

Julia Sweeney has come a long way since the days of "Pat," the ambiguously gendered character she played on Saturday Night Live. Her personal tales of overcoming cancer, denouncing God, and adopting a child from China have been the substance of her material since 1995. Her recent TED talk, however, brought Pat back to mind. Sweeney is totally adorable, so the video is worth watching in and of itself. [video:425x344] Yet I couldn't help but wonder what ... Read More

See for yourself what roller derby is all about. Check out the Gotham Girls Roller Derby tonight at 11:30 pm on WNYE Channel 25, a broadcast of the Bronx/Brooklyn bout.

The league is comprised of strong, diverse, and independent women from the world's biggest, baddest city." Hells yeah!

Need a reason to be stoked? Writer Emma Kat Richardson has the deets on Daria’s reemergence.
Recently, with infrequent bathroom breaks and meals brought straight to my futon perch, I consumed an innumerable amount of hours watching Daria on YouTube. Many of the episodes are crassly interrupted by a nauseating blur of static. Others had been uploaded backwards—a phenomenon that goes undetected until the title of Sick Sad ... Read More
