You've heard the intelligentsia, blabbing away at their dinner parties about the erosion of the American language. You've skimmed a comment board, at some point in your life. Heck, you're probably guilty of the occasional 'LITERALLY' or 'THEIR/THEY'RE/THERE' muddle yourself, despite AutoCorrect, a college degree, and the best intentions.
It's easy to chalk up the modern world's escalating tolerance of spelling and grammar mistakes to the newfangled ... Read More

Okay, so I'm guessing that if you have a TV or any access to the Internet, then you've probably heard about Elaine Stritch. Recently, the 89-year-old actress/genius visited the Today Show and uttered the word "fuck" on live television. As you can imagine, the clip went viral.Whoddathunk that when you bring one of the funniest women in the entertainment business onto a live TV program, she's going to speak her mind? (Or in this case, just do ... Read More

It's no secret that we're big fans of Amy Schumer, and we're freaking out over this new preview for her hilarious show, Inside Amy Schumer, which will return for a second season on April 1 at 10:30/9:30c on Comedy Central.

If you're anything like me (and since you are reading BUST I'm guessing you are), you've been spending these cold months binge watching episodes of RuPaul's Drag Race, waiting and longing for its return on February 24. I've re-watched these episodes so many times, my dreams (maybe nightmares?) have been overrun with lace-front wigs and and pieces of foam shaped like Africa. What if you could watch the new season, right now, for free?
The awesome people ... Read More

I'm not sure what it is, but I have a very deep love for entertainment that features a woman somewhat hopelessly trying to float amid the wreckage of her totally normal life--and if she's just barely keeping her head above water, I fall in love within thirty seconds.
I always find myself more inspired by less-than-inspiring portrayals of women's lives. When shows depict women that make it to work every single day no more than five minutes late with perfect hair, ... Read More

The episode begins with a cheeky shoutout to the world of Wes Anderson: a montage of Marnie preparing a spooky-yet-eleganza beachside manse for a girls-only weekend, complete with a banana-yellow title frame and chipper, and Tenenbaums-y strings in the background. It’s already clear that shit’s gonna get weird.
Now settled in that strange place where quirk meets melancholy, the crew arrives. Jessa has decided to ride in the back of the bus “for ... Read More

Okay, okay, it doesn't "tell us why we're single" — the comedy stylings of Paul Gale merely expose a truth. Sometimes we can all be a bit shallow, and it never hurts to laugh at yourself.
And may I remind those flying solo this Hallmarkian holiday of the many reasons why being single is the bees-knees. Namely, remote-control ownership, autonomy, every-night-is-ladies'-night, not-having-sucky-relationships, self-confidence, unplanned adventures, and ... Read More
