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
This is one really awesome little girl. I  admire her enthusiasm. I don't think I could muster up nearly as much energy in the morning to be that positive.  Let's just hope she remains as confident and assertive through puberty.  You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this video   I CAN DO ANYTHING ...

Corporate wisdom has long held that no one watches TV in the summertime so it's best to air re-runs. In recent years it has been a time to launch programs considered too experimental for the fall lineup. This has lead to massive, unexpected hits like, Burn Notice and True Blood. What does this summer have in store? In this episode of NPR's, "The Takeaway," BUST's own Emily Rems and TV blogger Delaina Dixon give us the scoop. Listen here:  // ... 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. This description from the web site says it all -- "Gotham Girls Roller Derby is New York City’s only all-female, do-it-yourself (DIY), skater-operated roller derby league. The league is comprised of strong, diverse, and independent women from the world's biggest, baddest city." Hells yeah! You ... Read More

Daria's back!

BY Lisa Kirchner in Boob Tube |

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
We're so excited about the Betty White/Jay-Z combo, we've decided to try something different: a kind of liveblog for SNL! Post your thoughts as the show happens in the comments. I've got my money on a sketch featuring a rapping Betty.   Image of Betty White courtesy ... Read More
In the ongoing story of “animals doing cute things,” this penguin escaped from a group of killer whales—by jumping onto a boat of observers. We love it. Check it out after the jump!   You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this ... Read More

  We were excited when the Betty White love started. We were excited when it was announced she would host. And now, we have her promos to keep us occupied until the actual show this Saturday night. We’ll be opening a post that night so everyone can comment-liveblog their thoughts, so keep your eyes peeled! And check out her promos under the jump.    I think this means that she and Jay-Z will have to be in a sketch together. If they ... Read More

GLEE and Body Image

BY Jamie Doak in Boob Tube |

This is belated but Glee last week was awesome.  After the cheerleading coach, Sue Sylvester, told Mercedes she needed to lose 10 pounds by the end of the week, the previously confident Mercedes stopped eating all together.  She fainted in school from hunger and pregnant former cheerleader Quinn came in to talk to her in the nurse's office: Mercedes: [Quinn offers her food] Thanks, I’m not hungry.Quinn: Yes, you are. You're starving.  I know, ... Read More
