It’s music festival season, and while you might have already braved the Porta Potties at some of the better-known U.S. events, there’s one gem that might’ve escaped your attention. The Festival d’éte de Quebec (the Quebec Summer Festival, for those of you who didn’t show up to high school French class) is happening as we speak in Canada, that health-insurance-having, glorious area north of Vermont. I attended the first few days ... Read More

I Have a Tramp Stamp

BY Molly Simms in Feminizzle |

  In 1999, I was living in Tokyo, doing a study abroad program and having the time of my and several other people's lives. During the day I stuffed myself into subway cars to explore foreign neighborhoods, and I walked the streets at night, drinking bottled cocktails (Jeebus bless you Japan, for your lax open-container laws and inventive portable booze options) and taking photos of all the odd or amazing things I saw, which was pretty much everything. I had ... Read More
  We’re gearing up for some seriously warm, no-tights-under-your-dress weather, but most of us are still nowhere near abandoning our jackets. That’s where sweatshirts come in—the only item of clothing I happily own that has the word “sweat” in the title. But the latest versions hitting the stores have come a long way from the oversized gray Champion numbers you were probably sporting in middle school. Here are some of my top picks ... Read More
What do NFL locker rooms and a mobile clinic doling out “Free Prostate Exams!” have in common? They’re all places where you’re unlikely to find women. And that’s unsurprising and fine, but the creator of the genius Tumblr 100PercentMen has blown my mind grapes by pointing out other places where women have yet to tread. And though I’m well-versed in Infuriating Woman’s Issues News, even I had to gasp at some of ... Read More
Last night, the BUST staffers had a Ladies Night Out at the premiere party for Portlandia’s season 2. We have huge TV crushes on the IFC hit, and the second season way exceeded our expectations. The two new eps we watched at the party were packed with delightfully insane jokes, new characters (FYI, “We can pickle that!” is the new “Put a bird on it!”), and old pals like the aggressive bike messenger and feminist-bookstore owners. The blowout was held at ... Read More
Take two cups of 'Pee Wee's Big Adventure,' 1/2 cup of Rachael Ray, a heaping tablespoon of 'H.R. Pufnstuf' and 5 tabs of acid--then stir frantically. The result? IFC's new show, 'Food Party,' which is hosted by the irrepressible, bat-shit crazy (in the best way) Thu Tran. Her gonzo cooking class is filled with a cast of degenerate puppets who float around her cardboard sets, helping assemble sometimes-inedible masterpieces. It started as a series of web shorts ...

               For those of you who aren't into watching the Koalas battle the Manatees this Sunday at the Stupor Bowl (I have no understanding of who is playing, or how sports work), there is a safe place to rest your eyeballs. Sarah Haskins, the brilliant comedian profiled in the December/January issue of BUST, will be hosting a show on Current called the 'Target Women Super Special.' The hour-long special, ... Read More

Sit Ubu, Sit

BY Molly Simms in Boob Tube |

I'm not a dog owner, nor do I play one on TV, but I'm obsessed with the Animal Planet show "It's Me Or the Dog." Partially it's because I'm a sucker for seeing dogs misbehaving adorably, but I also have a massive girl crush on the show's resident trainer, Victoria Stilwell. She's like a tiny package of cranky British sternness, administering verbal beatdowns to dog owners insane enough to do things like feed their pets ice cream cones every afternoon (an ... Read More
