  Many of you know that Chik-fil-A makes a lot of sandwiches and donates a lot of money to anti-gay organizations. However you might not be familiar with the badass LGBT activist who shed light on this company and their hateful activities in January of this year, long before the recent hubbub. Ladies and gentleman, may I present to you Hillary Dworkoski, dedicated gay-rights activist and college sophomore. Dworkoski is responsible for the change.org petition ... Read More
  That's right, folks-- the BUST Magazine issue-release party is *tonight* at Bar Matchless in Brooklyn. (557 Manhattan Ave.) We’re celebrating our August/September issue (with the fantastic Tavi Gevinson on the cover), so stop by any time after 8 p.m. for free magazines, cheap drinks, DJs, and rad bands. Bring all your lady bros! (Man bros also very welcome.) This’ll mark the first of a series of free (you know, as in zero dollars) ... Read More
If you live in NYC, you’ve probably heard about fracking recently. We blogged about Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon leading a group of high-profile New Yorkers against the practice, a drilling method which can release a bevy of harmful chemicals into our water and air, damaging our environment and our health. It turns out that many of these chemicals are especially detrimental to women; ecologist Sandra Steingraber has even taken to classifying fracking as a ... Read More
Have you heard of Sweater Girls?  Honestly, I hadn’t until I gave their album Sweater Girls Were Here a listen.  Their latest album is a collection of cutesy songs about young love, heartbreak, and things like “riding bikes through the park,” as heard on the third track, “Pretty When You Smile.”  If you like to hum along to the smooth and indifferent vocals of Diana Meehan of Best Coast, or have ever found yourself ...

  I know, I know. You’ve already watched and read a million incarnations of Sherlock Holmes. But I’m encouraging you to make room for just one more. I was lucky enough to see the pilot of CBS’s new show, Elementary, and I’m very happy to report it’s worth watching. Elementary is a modern-day adaption of the tale of Sherlock Holmes, starring Johnny Lee Miller (Trainspotting) and Lucy Liu (Charlie’s Angels, Kill Bill Volumes 1&2, every action ... Read More
We absolutely love these illustrations by Kay Nielsen from East of the Sun and West of the Moon: Old Tales From the North, a 1914 book of 15 Scandinavian fairy tales.  Nielsen is most well known for his illustrations of The Brothers Grimm and a visual history of Arabian Nights. Sure, the drawings are striking and pretty, but they also have a haunting feel to them, which is fitting since many fairy tales themselves do.  Just look at the big, looming trees ... Read More
I tried to fight it, and I tried to deny it, but I can't. I love Tavi Gevinson (Maybe you've heard of her? She was on the cover of some magazine called BUST) . Even more than Tavi, I luuuurve Rookie, which is why I was sure to preorder Rookie Yearbook One. For those of you who don't know (shame on you!), Rookie was founded a year ago today by Ms. Gevinson to give teen girls content that they weren't being given in, say, Seventeen or Teen ... Read More
Fashion designer Nzinga Knight doesn't use low-cut necklines in her designs, or gowns with thigh-high slits exposing bare legs. There’s no cleavage, back, or belly showing on the models who wear her designs. Why? Knight's a devout Muslim. Instead of flaunting the wearer's assets, her work's sex appeal is tied to the mystery of the covered body. "The look of my work is sensual, mysterious, innovative," she told Yahoo! News. She explained that her target is ... Read More
Just when you thought Martha Plimpton couldn't get any cooler, she up and does just that. Last night she announced on Twitter that she had  released a video for the  women's rights group she recently launched, A is For. In it, she explains the why she started the org--which is basically that things kinda suck for women here and around the world, and they are getting sucker. Plimpton wants to help make things better, and her Org has an interesting ... Read More
