A-cups, rejoice! Pop a piece of Bust Up Gum, which claims to increase bust size, and get the boobs of your dreams! And pigs can fly and Lindsay Lohan is going to get her act together. Sorry, this product sounds like the sort of thing only encountered on the Hogwarts Express. In the minor defense of the makers of Bust Up Gum, the creators at least went through the pretense of making a brilliant scientific discovery. They included fancy schmancy ingredients and all: Maltitol, Lactitol, Hydrogenated Glucose Syrup, and Pueraria. So, I guess this won’t work for you if you are into organic or that natural food business, but whatevs, you can’t have everything. Oh, but a a few notes of caution. The label recommends popping at least six tablets per day and also advises that you should not consume during pregnancy, breastfeeding, menstruation, or if you have been diagnosed with medical conditions of the ovaries, uterus, or breast. Oh, also, consuming in large amounts may cause loose bowels. That might be a problem for some. Keep reading »
Last night, The Frisky’s Emily and I celebrated 15 years of Bust magazine in a circus tent packed with crafty, sassy, stylish babes and their gay boyfriends. Performances by booty beat internet icon Leslie Hall (who autographed the concert t-shirt her mom sold me), burlesque style strippers like Peekaboo Pointe, Amy Sedaris, DJ JD Samson from Le Tigre, and drag king lounge act lover Murray Hill are how these girls like to get down! The ladies of Bust are a good time — and not just because they gave away 500 vibrators to the crowd. Since 1993, they’ve also given women’s mags an irresistible edge. In a market flooded with stupid self-help tips and fashion for stick figures, they showcase women who are hip, hot, and, above all, their outrageous selves. The mag is not afraid to support the freaks and geeks that are flying in the face of traditional pre-packaged celebs. They put revolutionary people in print, without discriminating based on looks and marketing machines. They go for vigilantes with vaginas who are shaping our generation of bad ass bitches. Like their favorite women, Bust does what it wants and it really has an eye — they’ve featured cover girls like Amy Poehler, Beth Ditto, Bjork and Charlotte Gainsbourg. So, congratulations Bust! You keep the magazine rack well-rounded. Keep reading »
I have a friend who collects strange vintage taxidermy. He spends hours eBay searching for squirrels in strange poses on eBay, and I can only imagine what his girlfriend thinks of this hobby. My advice to her would be to buy a cardboard bust instead — they come in deer, rhino, and moose (more pics after the jump). [PerpetualKid] Keep reading »
Yesterday was Bust‘s Spring Fling Craftacular and The Frisky was there to help. We had a blast giving out free panties, tote bags, and pins, and want to thank Bust for having us. We documented a bit of the fierceness. Enjoy!

Yesterday at the Bust Spring Fling Craftacular, I went to Sprout Jewelry’s booth four times to ogle this ring. They only had one for sale and the finger it fit is the one I wear my dang engagement ring on. For some reason, my ring finger on my right hand is fatter. Anyway, I had to walk away, but for the cheapo price of $38 (available on the line’s Etsy page!), this cool, angular piece of jewelry may be mine after all. Or yours!
