How different would 30 Rock be without flaxen-haired, diva-voiced Jane Krakowski? Here’s your chance to find out! Check out this four-minute video, unearthed by Buzzfeed, of the ORIGINAL pilot of 30 Rock, with SNL alum Rachel Dratch playing “Jenna DeCarlo” instead of Jenna Maroney. The whole vibe of the show is different; Krakowski’s high-strung and incessant attempts at fame are replaced by Dratch’s shenanigans as a weirder, cooler ... Read More
Ever feel akin to Cookie Monster cheerily exclaiming, “Me so hungry,” when it comes to news on Tina Fey? Then you’re in for a sweet treat: according to Vulture, Fey is currently slated to be in the Muppets sequel, following 2011’s smash hit headlining Jason Segel and Amy Adams, and more importantly, Kermit and Miss Piggy. Fey, who always seems to be juggling a dozen projects, is even busier than usual – what with wrapping up the fan ... Read More
  I love drag. I always have; when I was about five years old I apparently watched the classic drag movie The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert so often that the tape of the VHS wore out. Now, 16 years later, I watch just about everything online, so there’s no problem if I want to watch the same thing over and over, like I’ve done with the first season of “Rupaul’s Drag U.” But soon there will be a new batch of women ...

A teen drama without any thin actresses...  OMFG.  For the past few weeks I’ve been constantly passing this ad (left) for the new ABC Family series Huge.   And each time I see it, I feel a weird mix of emotions.  On one hand, the ad features a plus sized girl (Hairspray’s Nikki Blonsky) in a bathing suit. On the other hand, she looks depressed and is trying to cover her stomach.   Either way, it effectively sparked my ...

I feel as though I should start with a declaimer:  Content in this blog may be unsuitable for children. Actually, if you’re a girl under the age of 18, please don’t continue reading. I don’t want to be responsible for exposing an entire generation of young woman to this. So just go do your homework or something.    It’s unclear whether this dance move originated in Brazilian nightclubs or their bedrooms, but I can only assume ... Read More
Apparently, Oprah received some flak for not having Sarah Palin on her show during the presidential election. Oprah states that Palin's team never asked for her to be on the show and besides, why should they have? They probably knew like the rest of us that lady O was a huge Obama supporter from the start. Anyhoo, Oprah will feature Ms. Palin on Nov. 16th, the day before Going Rogue: An American Life, lands in bookstores. If you're like me, you could care less ... Read More
Now in it's 9th year, the Bicycle Film Festival is out to prove that peddle pushing isn't just a passing trend. Much like the number of two-wheelers seen on the street, it's becoming unstoppable. You don't have to be a hardcore biker babe to enjoy the show, either: those of us who prefer to take a joyride on our cruisers can get in tandem with cycle-centric cinema. Currently in Paris, the wheels-on-reels tour will make stops in Auckland, Denver, Sydney, Tokyo, ... Read More
I don't want to give away too much about the quirky little ditty, Obvious Child, but I will say that it's an unlikely romantic comedy in that it features Jenny Slate as a woman named Donna, heartbroken and one half of a one night stand who winds up pregnant. Her sticky situation results in a trip to the doctor for an abortion and what happens on the way is where the romantic business occurs. Written by Anna Bean (a former BUST intern!), Karen Maine, and Gillian ... Read More
Just when you thought children's toys couldn't get any weirder, a mysterious photo surfaces and pushes the boundaries of taste to whole new levels. This week, we give you the Pole Dancer Doll, a toy that is er, pretty self-explanatory. The baby-faced doll comes outfitted in a sparkly green dress with pole and light-up flashing stage to match. Unfortunately, it seems you'll have to provide the riff-tastic soundtrack yourself (Warrant's 'Sweet Cherry Pie,' anyone?) ... Read More
