But here at BUST we have complied a list of fun items to purchase to look good and feel good. Why feel good? Our list donates 100% (yes, you read that right) of the proceeds to cancer awareness and research. Stella & Dot ... Read More
Surely you recall when, last year, SNL’s lack of diversity reached critical (un)mass and much ado was made about show-runner Lorne Michaels’ search for a fresh black female face to add to the cast. Leslie Jones was in the pool along with Sasheer Zamata, and though the latter was eventually recruited as a cast member, Jones impressed too, so she was culled for the writing room. Well, Leslie Jones is officially moving out of the writing room and onto the ... Read More
The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, NY was the first stop on tour for Har Mar Superstar and The Pizza Underground. They were also joined by the Candy Boys, a two-man boy band, starring D’arick and A’rick. They played hits “How Many Licks?” and “Hard Out There.” I loved their set so much! Adult men in crop tops singing and dancing about candy was so entertaining that I might just follow them on tour. Just when I thought they ... Read More

Ansari’s recent declaration of feminism on The Late Show with Dave Letterman was a prominent talking point during the podcast. If you missed it, in-between typical talk-show anecdotes and Beyoncé references, ... Read More
  It was music for the kids in high school who wore worn-out Converse and an air of nonchalance. They didn’t smoke like the others, but drank coffee like water, and listened to Sleater-Kinney with the same kind of aggression. Most were unabashedly convinced they were the only ones the band were singing to. Comprised of Corin Tucker, Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss, Sleater-Kinney became enmeshed in the northwest punk scene of the early '90s. To say ... Read More

The film follows the Internet relationship between Cody (John Gallagher Jr.) and Virginia (Sheil) as she completes a six-month trip in Berlin. The couple has never met physically and it has never affected their relationship. What happens when Cody suspects that Virginia may be a few stops away from him on the L train and not 3000 miles away? Starring in ... Read More
  My first encounter with the work of Chloe Fay Worth Smith came in the form of large mounted color print of a mattress stained with menstrual blood. In a group show at Sarah Lawrence College, the work was magnetic and alluring, its uncomfortable subject matter elevated by its aesthetic beauty. The vision, so ordinary in the context of girlhood humiliations, became unfamiliar through her lens, emerging like the mysterious remains of some remarkable event. The ... Read More

El-P+Killer Mike=Run the Jewels El-P+Killer Mike+CATS=Meow the Jewels The fast and nasty rap collaboration, Run the Jewels, who released their self-titled debut album in 2013 as a free digital download, have declared their intention to re-record their upcoming sophomore album Run the Jewels 2 “...using nothing but cat sounds for music.” In September, the duo offered up some pretty ridiculous pre-order packages for RTJ2, including ...
