T LOunge

Posted on July 28, 2011

Ohhhhhh, kittens and poodles and darlings and precious unborn fawns all, The T LOunge is once again, at long last OPEN, Y’ALL! If you’re new here, this is our Project Runway viewing tradition; we all imaginary-go to a fabulous bar somewhere in the world, get drunk, and watch Project Runway, shouting out our thoughts in the comments section. Grand fun, high drama, and casual sex amongst the gays during the commercial breaks; if you haven’t been, you’ll LOVE it.

And in grand T LOunge fashion:

The Ladies Lounge at The G Hotel in Ireland

Think Pink, darlings! What better than every queen’s old favorite, The Ladies Lounge. For isn’t every T LOunge a ladies lounge, ladies?

Also in grand T Lounge fashion, we saw the first episode already and you didn’t; a little tradition we call our Neener-Neener Screener.

Don’t ask us to give a second of the proceedings away ahead of time, darlings, but we can tell you it was a really fun, energetic episode with a pretty great challenge and some damn fine on-point judging. The first ten minutes are completely different from any season opener before, but after we got over how jarring it was, we considered it a great way to get to know the contestants as well as potentially providing an awful lot of… well, we’ll get to that in our recap tomorrow.

For those worried about the talent level, we’ll say there were more than enough entries that could have been in the top 3 and leave it at that for now. Also, the cast is mostly fun at this point. You can guess where the tension’s going to come from, but no one was out of line or over the top for this challenge.

Christina Ricci was a very good judge and Heidi looked stunning when she came out for the runway show. Y’know, she really should wear more gowns on this show.

For now, your directive is to drink. If you’re imaginary driving, then only drink imaginary non-alcoholic drinks, darlings. If your imaginary chauffeur is parked outside ready to carry you out to the car by the time Heidi says “I’m sorry, but that means you’re out,” well then, get imaginary busy, bitch!

What’s on the menu for tonight? We’ll have our usual of wine and pizza for the premiere.

Remember: The Road to the Runway casting special is on at 8/7c and Project Runway immediately follows it at 9/8c, so pace yourselves, darlings!

    Good day, all! Long time no schmooze.

      I’ll join you. Crank up the AC. Are we sitting at the bar or should we grab a booth?

          Groovy! And, of course, we need a drinking game. How about: Anytime a contestant says either, ‘I came here to win’ or ‘I didn’t come here to make friends’, we all guzzle the cocktail of our choice?

          BTW, where’s the waiter? We need some nibblies. And I’d like a couple of Slurpees (to soak my feet).–GothamTomato

    Alright,  who’s got the uninformed, gut check prediction on 
    -which four don’t make the show
    -first off
    -final 3
    -winner

    GO!!!  First round of Sidecars are on me!

    • Logo Girl

      First off: Both Joshuas and whomever the two foofiest girls turn out to be. Then another foofy girl will be auf’d
      Final three are Danielle, Viktor and Becky, with a close call between Becky and Olivier.
      Winner is Becky (who will have her whole collection modeled by plus-sized models) thus producing a fourth Northwest PR winner.
      totally off the top of my head.

      Toni, pull up a glass and I’ll trade tastes. I’d love to try some fine Wisconsin Wine! Here in MA we have a lot of local grown fruit wines, but I haven’t found a decent local grape wine.

        Fabulous. This winery is the only one that grows their own grapes right along the WI River.  I will have to try the MA bubbly!   
         I’m sure BB and Bill and the other GT and all the others will certainly be here.  How could you miss it?  :)

            Hi Gang!  So sorry to have missed.  One thing I miss about corporate life was the chance to sit at a computer and pretend to work while I was actually drinking like a fish in the TLOunge and carrying on with you all. We had a 9′x5′ table delivery after work – took 4 of us.  We got home with only enough time to get dinner done and leap in front of the TV for the start of the show.  Glad to hear you were thinking of me.  I miss you guys!! xo

    Okay, so here’s a joke for you all.
    A grasshopper walks into a bar.

    Ahhh. I’ll be lying low as my cable-donor friend is out of town and I must wait for the a.m. to watch on line. This Lounge calls for a pretty drink, but it’s too hot out for sugary. Build your own: 1/2 a highball glass of sliced, mixed citrus, pour in a shot of your favorite tipple  (I’m for gin over orange, ruby grapefruit and lime – though in my circles rum is more popular) and finish with seltzer.

    Keep them coming.

    FINALLY, finally, finally broke down and created a DISQUS account, having had to create a variation on the old identity from TLO’s prior blog operations.  Some other person had the temerity to register my initials first.

    Lovely to be back in the PR swing, and a cosmo for me, in honor of all that blinding pinkness.  20 contestants – too many to keep straight, as it were, but Our Boys’ teaser promises good entertainment.  Which all of us can certainly use.  Hello to Gorgeous Things, Gotham Tomato, Brooklyn Bomber, Sewing Siren from PR seasons and comments past, and hello to folks in the TLO community with whom I’ve not yet interacted. 

    Drama, design and divadom.  A good recipe for a warm summer night.  Let’s just hope that Lifetime has learned from some of its mistakes…. !

    After suffering through the utter WTF-ery of last year’s baffling finale, I promised myself that I’d never watch this show again. But I can’t say no to Tim Gunn, nor to repeating everything Heidi says in a horrible, gruff, “Isla, She-Wolf of the SS” accent. Perhaps vodka and you guys will help through the pain.  But I can’t help but think that I’m a battered wife in a LMN movie of the week where The Duchess and Nina combine to form the abusive husband, and Tim Gunn is the “But baby, I only do it because I love you” that keeps me coming back for more. I only pray that this year, Tim hid the crack pipe.

    In honor of National Lasagna Day I’ve made my favorite recipe.  (How did it get to be National Lasagna Day?  Who decides these things, and how did lasagna hire a P.R. firm?)  But I’m going to eat less so I can drink more later.

    • Anonymous

      I am such a lapse Italian that I didn’t even know it was National Lasagna Day!  Bad Guida I am!

    • Eclectic Mayhem

      Hey Lori

      I have to admit that, back in my former life in London, it was part of my job to run something called the Awareness Campaign Register which kept track of everything from the heavy duty charity awareness days/weeks to the PR based frippery like National Lasagna Day.

      So if you really want to know how Lasagna got a PR firm I could tell you… pull up a chair – let’s have a drink!

      Eclectic

      • Lori

        Yes, please.  I love that you know this and I want to hear about it, Eclectic. 

        • Eclectic Mayhem

          Hey Lori, sorry for the delay in replying – it took me until now to get back into the Lounge!

          In the UK, at least, this is how campaigns like National Lasagna Day get started…

          The PR dept/firm representing a major brand – say Stouffer’s for example – would contact me to discuss the idea.  I had no powers of veto but was a central font-of-all-knowledge about Awareness Campaigns and could give advice and steer people towards the less congested times of year (avoid October!).  Registering the dates with me also meant that they’d trickle through to all of the Profile Group’s other publications which was a damn good start to getting the word out to all relevant parties.

          So the campaign, backed by a major brand, starts to gain publicity and retailers get involved.  Other brands may piggy back and get on board too.  If the day is successful and runs for a few years it starts to build a momentum of its own and can run even without the backing of a major sponsor – especially if there’s an identifiable pattern to when its scheduled ie always the fourth Thursday in July.  Once the original sponsor has moved on other companies may step in and take over – my publication would help ease that kind of transition.

          So – there you have it – that’s how Lasagna organises itself into having an awareness day.  

          Helping actual charities out with their campaigns made dealing with the frippery and nonsense of stuff like ‘Sausage Week’ all worthwhile.

    After watching the awful PR Aus Season 3 for the past four weeks, which is sub-PR Season 6 in quality – seriously, last episode there were three designers I forgot the name of, and one I only remembered because he wears so much makeup he looks photoshopped (even a girl with multiple piercings and pink hair manages to be forgettable). And there was a team challenge where only one team had any drama (which consisted of one designer shouting about how much she hates the 90s and her partner (one of two designers I remember because they made nice things) sighing). The only bright spot is a European guy who is like a badly dressed Casanova, I think they keep him around solely for that reason, even if his designs make no sense – I need to see the real thing again.

    Sorry, needed to vent about my disappointment. PR Aus Seasons 1 and 2 were really good (PR Aus is actually what got me watching, I’m outside the target demographic but stumbled on the car challenge on Youtube and was hooked), I recommend stealing them from the internet next time there’s a season break and you need something to watch.

      I was thinking that the “right woman” might just be someone who wants to be loosely, culturally Mormon (like all us cultural Catholics out here practicing birth control and voting to keep abortion legal.) Very loosely. Who will accompany him, side by side but at arm’s length, as they travel the path to the inevitable juncture where it is clear that one or both of them have to make a break.

      Good luck Josh. Hope you find yourself congenial company on that rocky road.

            The funny part is that they DID know.  These two idiots were moving to Uruguay.  Where they speak Spanish as a primary language.  But neither member of the couple had bothered to learn “sí” from “no,” and the announcer apparently couldn’t figure out how to just say that they were going to a country whose language they didn’t speak.

            I’m Murican as they come.  I still know that “Foreign” is not a language name!  (And would learn to speak Spanish if I planned to move to Uruguay, unless it was some sort of emergency move.)

    Wasn’t Christina Ricci a judge before?

    Got sucked in – I was all planning to take the high road and boycott PR due to the judges’ “decision we shall not mention” (cough -’Gretchen won’- cough). but I caught the last half tonight. Dig the challenge, dig the designers for the most part – good combo of drama, bitchery, arrogance and twee sweetness.There was some interesting stuff on that runway and, more importantly, some serious talent. Let’s all pull up next week with some Pimm’s (Summer is almost over, must indulge while we can) and pizza!

    I actually got a girl’s night out tonight, and am soooo late. Can’t wait to watch it. It’s wonderful to be drinking with all of you strangers again. I will have three glasses of wine in a plastic glass and a cheap beer, because that’s what I had tonight.

    Best first Auf ever.
    And, in light of my comments in one of the “Meet The Designers” posts, I must publicly apologize to Anthony Ryan, who is now my favorite contestant.  Maybe not my favorite designer (though close), but LOVE HIM.  The accent, the whole “I’m rocking one” comment, and his cute personal fashion sense.

    What has Christina Ricci done to her face? She has clearly had some “dental work” done (Kathy Griffin fans will get that).

    I don’t know anyone’s names yet, but Barbie from St. Louis is going to piss people off. The sweet little bald Mormon guy is clearly headed for a breakdown. I still think something was VERY fishy with beauty pageant chick’s samples she brought to try out with. Sorry. FISHY. Love Burt. 

    • http://profiles.google.com/bratling2 Laura Davies

      Laura Kathleen.  And I can tell that she’s going to annoy the crap outta me.  Will probably do a happy dance when she’s auf’ed like I did with Ivy last season.  I hope Josh (bald, sweet, and kinda cute) isn’t going to have a breakdown, but I can guarantee he’s gonna start second guessing every decision.  Here’s to hoping that he lasts a while, though.  And I agree with you.  Those samples were verrry fishy.  After all, I’ve been sewing for most of my life, and I couldn’t do anything like professional finishing until I had years of practice under my belt. 

      • Anonymous

        In a couple weeks we’ll find out that by ‘learning to sew’ she meant with a machine, she’d been sewing by hand since her grandmother handed her a needle and thread at the age of 4.

        She did say though that while she sewed everything she had a lot of help. I imagine then its possible she had a teacher and if she has the resources and the drive she could have spent a solid 4 months(plus however much time there was between casting call and filming of the first episode) doing nothing but perfecting her skills.(Like a celebrity who says it only took me 2wks to lose 20lbs of baby fat and get my flat stomach, while not mentioning the Nanny, personal Chef and 8hr a day Personal Trainer.) So far though she is coming across as sweet and self-deprecating in her talking heads so I’m perfectly happy to see her do well. 

  • http://profiles.google.com/bratling2 Laura Davies

    I knew Rafael was gonna be the one to go.  “fashion backwards” and “he doesn’t seem to realize that there’s a problem” are practically the kiss of death! (Josh’s humility saved him, I think.)  Crossing my fingers and hoping that Josh lasts a bit longer.  He seems like a real sweet guy.  But with his background, sooner or later, he’ll probably be labeled as “safe” and “boring” and get the auf.  Cheering for him, though.  ‘Cause, well, gotta cheer for the fellow Mormon!

      I love that he hopes to find the right girl someday!  I think the problem might be that the right girl needs to have a Y chromosome.

    Ladies and gays, it’s great to be back at the T Lounge!  Way overdue.  

    Alas – my DVR malfunctioned so I haven’t seen the ep yet and it doesn’t air again till midnight.  Soooo……I’ll have to catch up on it on Friday.  Can’t wait!

    In the mean time – I’ll have a vodka tonic and brace myself for the TLo recaps!  =D  So happy.  Seriously!

    Well, I can vouch if your’re from Wisconsin or Illinois (Indiana-adjacent) it strictly means Indiana.  It doesn’t make any sense otherwise, everyone else is just simply mistaken. 

    • Anonymous

      Agreed. I grew up in Michigan, currently live in Ohio, and have lived in Kentucky. In all 3 states, “Hoosier” means an Indiana native. How much more of the Midwest is left when you include Wisconsin & Illinois? I’ve never heard the term Hoosier applied as a pejorative. Maybe that’s because all 3 states border Indiana like Illinois does.

      Since Anya held her own – are you implying Heidi was wrong?    The other judges are the ones who ASSumed that he short time experience meant she had no skills at all.

    While watching I was hoping for Anya to win, but after seeing the designs close up, I see why Bert won, he deserved it.  I really like Bert and Anya.

    Dear Anthony:  Remember last season?  Remember Mondo, and how nobody even knew he was HIV positive until like the top five?  Learn from this example.  Because your uncanny ability to work either your cancer or your colorblindness into any conversation is already really annoying.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LKTZXP3ZGH2GGB3UJ5YE3CE2GA dariamilan

      I have a feeling mr. uniball will be non-stopping talking about them until he gets auf’d. That was interesting start to the season. Has anyone else noticed since the move from Bravo to Lifetime how the cast has gotten a lot less diverse in terms of contestants  and a lot more like the demographics of a lifetime white lady viewer? I love Bert and I Anya and I thought I would find them both annoying. Was really surprised they liked uniball’s merkin skirt. Was also surprised they kept closet case mormon around. Maybe they think he will come out on the show or bring some Mormon viewership.

    • Margo Anderson

      Colorblind Guy and Uniball Guy are not the same person.  However, they are both irritating.

        They are indeed one and the same package of annoying.

    Delurking for the first time, though I’ve been around TLo for a couple seasons and with PR since the get-go.  Count me in on the massive Bert love…but I would SO wear the puking clown dress.  I have a similar geek t-shirt on which a unicorn is pooping rainbows.  Can’t help it.  Bert ftw, though!!!

    I’m already starting to feel protective of Bert.  If anyone’s mean to him I’m gonna have a problem.

      You’ll love it!  I was there in June and tried really hard not to gawk like a tourist from Tinytown, USA.  The drinks are fab, too!

        Thanks Judy :) I was there a few years ago with my sisters and we had a fantastic time, looking forward to going again. Although I was slightly put off by seeing it featured in a film over the weekend. It was the new Brendan Gleeson film, The Guard, and featured Brendan’s character, an obese fiftysomething policeman and two prostitutes doing their thing in one of the G bedrooms… bleeech!

    I’ve got cable for a few more weeks, so I decided to watch last night. I’m glad Bert won, but since he was clearly being given the really-nice-guy edit, I’m concerned that he may turn out to be a shmuck later. I hope not, I liked him.

    OK, somebody needs to start keeping a tally of how many times Anya says something along the lines of “I’ve never done this before” or “It’s my first time doing [whatever].” AND another tally on Anthony Ryan’s casual mentions of his testicular cancer.

    • http://www.facebook.com/slavetothegrinds Adrian Michelle

      on another board I post on for some shows they have a cliche’ contest and everyone puts thier guesses in in the beginning of the season. the main one that does this is hell’s kitchen..like counting “shut it down”"donkeys” or weird shit gordon does like throwing food. it’s intresting to see the end of season counts

    As a “foreign speaker” (a Heidi speaker to be precise) I can tell you that Bert answered a nicely pronounced “Dankeschoen!” (thanks a lot!) after being told that he won. And Heidi answered “Bitteschoen!” (you’re welcome!). So either he is able to speak foreignheidilanguage or he is very well prepared. :)
