Remember when you got grounded in 10th grade for coming home drunk and vomiting on the dog? Or the time you got caught selling fake ecstasy and were escorted out of that after-hours dive? Or how about the time your girlfriend got your password and broke into your Gmail account, only to discover you had an online honey? Man, if you had a dollar for every time you got busted, you’d be able to post bail right about now.
To celebrate all that goes wrong when you’re up to no good, powerHouse Magazine introduces Issue 5: Busted , a sometimes serious, often hilarious look at failure and fiasco from around the globe. From manhunts to masturbation, friendly fire to robbing the mafia, trespassing to parking-lot madness, Busted promises the most eclectic mix of nogoodniks, anarchists, and frisky kids ever caught between two covers.
