Yes, They're Real

Last summer I expounded on the wonders of Bitch magazine. This post will be spotlighting Bust magazine.

Bust has been around for a long time and was created by those two awesome chicks that brought you Stitch N' Bitch and The Happy Hooker (crochet book), Debbie Stoller and Laurie Henzel. Bust is Bitch's bratty pop culture lovin' little sister. Definitely more light hearted and vibrant than the seriously serious Bitch. Bitch is dark crimson and Bust is day glo green.

This month British songstress Lily Allen graced the cover along w/ articles about indie bands, weirdo books, Neil Gaiman, practical advice about sex and relationships and a hi-larious story about the origins of Mother's Day.

It's nice to take a break from the uber-feminist speak of Bitch. And Bust is printed more often that Bitch, 6 times a year compared to 4. The only real problem I have w/ Bust is the fashion stuff. Too high priced and marketed for the size 4 and smaller set. Plus there was a whole page of jumpsuits and rompers. Really? That's the look for spring? Ummmmmm...... not so much. Thanks anyway.

Have a great Easter everyone. If you don't celebrate Easter, have a lovely springy weekend.

Oh, cool! I read an issue of Bitch once before and thought it was cool, while yes, also very (overly) serious.

I'll have to check out Bust.
