TLOunge

Posted on May 02, 2013

Oh, what the hell. Why not. One more time, darlings.

 

Allegra, Dubai

To be honest, we just want to celebrate that we’re finally getting a break from Project Runway, which we’ve been blogging non-stop in one form or another for over 18 months. Kittens, we need the rest.

We doubt we’ll bother with a recap tomorrow, but we figured if there’s one place our kittens should be tonight while these dirty little attention whores all claw at each other, it’s in Dubai with the rest of the Bitter Kittens, amirite?

 

We will be disappointed if we don’t see some serious crazy tonight.

 

 

And since we’ve had a T LOunge every week for a year and a half now, we’re loath to let them go. Why don’t y’all come back here on Sunday evening and we’ll find some retro lounge to sit and watch Mad Men in?  Sound good, darlings?

    Great idea!

  • Sarah

    OH MAH GAWD! Now I have to start watching MAD MEN so I can come to TLOUNGE!!!! My world is upside-down! How could you guys do this to me?!??!? (I joke. I love.)

  • Coolekat

    See you then.

  • http://twitter.com/MajorBedhead MajorBedhead

    I will watch the reunion show tomorrow on their website and then I will be very glad to be done with this show for a while.

    I don’t watch Mad Men either *ducks*. I tried, but I kept falling asleep. But maybe for you guys, I’ll start from season one on Netflix. I’ll be the one with all the questions.

    Tonight, I’m going to the little local theatre to watch 2 episodes of Buffy – Hush and Once More With Feeling. They serve booze there, so I’ll raise a drink in spirit.

    • Lori

      Boozy Buffy. I am so jealous.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=23422936 Jordan DeFrank

      This is insanely random, but are you talking about Popcorn Noir in Easthampton, MA??

      • http://twitter.com/MajorBedhead MajorBedhead

        Yes!!! Omg, are from here, too?

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=23422936 Jordan DeFrank

          Yes! and ive even gone to that exact Buffy night before! They played those episodes a few months back. Love that place! Small world!

          • http://twitter.com/MajorBedhead MajorBedhead

            Whoops, hit the dislike button instead of the reply button.

            Very small world indeed.

          • mhleta

            Marshfield Hills with roots in Chatham, here. I think I’m on the wall at W.H.A.T. from a play I did in the ’80s, too! Hayy, fellow Massholes!

    • http://www.linkedin.com/pub/anne-mccandless/1a/238/38a Anne

      That is awesome!!! What a great idea. I should turn my basement into a screening room and invite people over for shit I can get streaming off netflix and charge for booze :)

    • http://twitter.com/democracydiva Democracy Diva

      Those are by far the two best episodes of Buffy. Nicely done.

    • Celandine1

      Jealous! Also not ashamed to admit that I bought the soundtrack for the musical episode.

      • http://twitter.com/MajorBedhead MajorBedhead

        I didn’t even know there was a soundtrack! Must track that down.

      • formerlyAnon

        My daughter made me buy her that soundtrack years ago and now the entire family can sing along. Not that anyone of us but me would admit that in public.

    • UsedtobeEP

      I didn’t start watching until last season. The TLo recaps and style commentary are more than enough to catch you up. ; )

  • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

    I also, am looking forward to stepping back from the madness. So set me up with the best champagne in the place and someone keep me company while we watch these folks spill bile all over each other.

    • Sarah

      Something tells me they are going to be the meanest bunch yet. They were all so passive during the season there must be tons of brewing venom.

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        And I LOVE the screen cap of Crazy Eyes Daniel. Something tells me that we’re gonna hear that his losing is All Michelle’s Fault.

        • Celandine1

          Yes, somehow it will all be Michelle’s fault that 22 yr olds don’t buy his clothes AND he will be sure to whine about it.

        • Sarah

          I think you’re right on that! And speaking of crazy eyes, I can’t wait to see Patricia’s rolling around in her head while Richard throws shade.

          • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

            I can envision her calling him on his stuff, actually.

          • Sarah

            I hope she does. Somebody should!

        • another_laura

          Yes it will be something about how she didn’t want people to hug her when they came back from Europe. A great deal was made about that during the show. *shrugs*

        • UsedtobeEP

          I didn’t watch. Will scroll down to see if it all came down to that jacket…

    • 3boysful

      I totally forgot we had this mess tonite, but I am excited to be in the Lounge again, so will join you for champagne if I may. And so looking forward to a Mad Men Lounge!

    • another_laura

      I want to see a Daniel and Patricia Big-Wide-Open-Eye-Off, if you see what I mean.

    • tb

      Ooh ooh! I’ll keep you company! Keep that champagne coming!!

    • Anathema_Device

      I seriously might not be back for PR next time ’round. This season just sucked the last bit of fun and beauty out of the show. I will say that Michelle put on a great final runway show, but the season overall was craptastic. Probably not going to watch tonight, simply because this crop of designers ARE NO FUN! Not even in a fun-to-hate way!

      • Qitkat

        You didn’t miss much. The drama got rehashed ad nauseum, the quiet ones had very little to say, and we didn’t learn much of anything we didn’t already know. Unknown woman was the questioner. Any Bitter Kitten could have done a better job. I too don’t know if I can go forward when the next season comes around. Sucking about sums it up.

        • Anathema_Device

          Thank you for taking one for the team and watching for me. :-) I’ll curl up with a book instead.

        • Kristin McNamara

          The questioner wasn’t an “unknown woman”… it was Zanna Roberts Rassi. She’s an editor at Marie Claire and has guest judged (or maybe even hosted, can’t remember) on many an episode of

          PR in the past.

          • http://www.facebook.com/pril.wood Pril Wood

            Lol. I was sure “unknown woman” was meant as a dis to Z.R.R….. she might as well be since I agree with Q.

          • Qitkat

            I guess it just goes to show how minute an impression she has made on me in the past. She was no more memorable than at least 3 contestants whom I didn’t recognize.

    • Call me Bee

      I am royally PO’d that I missed the TLounge and all my BK friends last night. I hardly remembered that there was a reunion show–which I did watch. It was all shades of boring, but would have been so much better had I been here sipping champers. Ah well. Ta-ta, Kiltd, BB, NDC and all, till next season of PR. Have a fun summer!

  • http://twitter.com/DarrenNesbitt Darren Nesbitt

    TLO, Random: I just started watching The Big C (just got to season 2). I’m not sure if you guys have ever commented on it but that show is great! I’m some how sad in the last 3 minutes of EVERY episode. Anyone else watch?

    • travelgirl28

      Yes, I love this show. Have watched it from the beginning and am sad it’s winding up now. Laura Linney is amazing.

    • http://kathrynb.net/ Kate Borbas

      I WATCH!!! I was scouring the internet for decent reviews after the Hereafter premiere and was totally letdown… it seems as if no one covers it and I rarely meet anyone who has seen it, weird. You have no idea how many breathtaking screen grabs I have of that show… mostly involving water.

    • http://twitter.com/Rowsella315 Kathy G

      I’ve watched every season but don’t Showtime now. I’m planning a month in September so I can binge watch the last season. The Big C and Enlightened on HBO were TOL on my favorite series the past 2 years. I was never disappointed. And boy, you need a tissue box.

  • http://www.linkedin.com/pub/anne-mccandless/1a/238/38a Anne

    so on board with the Mad Men lounge!

    • http://www.GiftedCollector.com/ The Gifted Collector

      I have to concentrate too hard to catch everything. Once it’s finished, I hit “Start over” and watch it again. Then I read TLo’s recap, find out what I missed and watch it again. Couldn’t possibly split my attention to read and comment on a blog at the same time.

      • CozyCat

        Yeah, we’d spend half our time correcting ourselves on the second viewing.

        Really good strategy for a show: build up enough interest, and make things detail oriented enough that everyone watches TWICE.

  • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

    YES! I’ve been hoping for other show oriented lounges.

  • StellaZafella

    I was gonna say, “Too bad you don’t TLounge for Drag Race”…but that would just be INVITING disaster.
    I might lurk the Mad Men lounge just to keep up with all the Bitter Kittens.

    Barkeep, can I get a ginger and sunglasses…I’d like to sit BEHIND the bar so I have somewhere to duck to when the (fake) fur starts flying tonight. I just wanna see who Michelle is calling “such a loser” in the trailers…

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      You just know there is going to be some fake ire, just to get one last bit of screen time.

      • StellaZafella

        Honestly, I didn’t remember that half these people were even in this season until I saw the photo…
        talk about unmemorable…sheeeesh!

    • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

      And Drag Race would only give us one more anyway.

      I NEVER watch Mad Men as it airs, but I will show up to the Lounge anyway… I don’t care, spoil away :)

    • piperkitty

      Never miss Drag Race. A TLounge for it would be wonderful.

  • http://www.facebook.com/bert.keeter Bert Keeter

    Life without TNL….unimaginable!

  • BrooklynBomber

    “the backstabbing continues”
    and that speaks volumes about what’s happened to Project Runway.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      Particularly In a season notable for a lack of obvious back stabbing.

      • BrooklynBomber

        I KNOW! This season actually was somewhat reminiscent of what I always liked best about this show: creativity, problem solving, making silk purses from sows’ ears, etc. Yet they push trumped-up in-fighting.

        • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

          They persist in thinking that its what the fans want. Sad.

          • BrooklynBomber

            Why don’t they ask us?!?

        • CozyCat

          Yes. We were all dreading the team challenges, but it actually had a positive effect on both the quality of designs and the interaction between the designers.

          • BrooklynBomber

            I agree.

        • Anathema_Device

          I really disliked this season, but I cannot argue with you that the problem solving, etc. was good. the rest was just…I don’t know…aggravating. I spent episode after episode just plain irritated.

          • BrooklynBomber

            I know what you mean. I did enjoy the craft and creativity aspect, but at the same time I wasn’t as invested as before. If I missed an episode here and there (like tonight), I didn’t really care.

  • SewingSiren

    I’m in.

  • Beverly Kozma

    Daniel looks great with the haircut and shave … but that face is making me squirm. I’m glad he’s not looking at me.

    • Anathema_Device

      He totally reminds me of that “dramatic chipmunk” meme.

  • http://profiles.google.com/jgonz85 Jasmine Gonzalez

    Daniel shaved his nose mustache!

  • Laylalola

    Oh God they were already probably the most unpleasant group to watch during the season, I don’t think I’m up for this.

  • Cheryl

    Sunday night MAD MEN lounge!!! Yes! (Drinking but no smoking, please.)

  • Peeve

    Thank you, thank you! I was already anticipating BK/TLo withdrawal tonight, and was glad to see there’s a TLounge for tonight. Since I’ve started reading your recaps and Madstyle posts–I’m so there!

    • Sarah

      There, you’ve comforted me. I have no idea what’s going on, other then a lot of Bad Men being Mean to Women, but I like the recaps. I guess I can invite myself…

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        I’m with you! Sadly my attendance will be spotty. My work sked is wacky, so Sunday is the one day I consistently have for socializing. So it’s usually booked. But I will poke my nebby nose in from time to time.

        • formerlyAnon

          I’m with you, though for different logistical reasons. But it’s nice to know TLounge will be there, with many of the same gang – plus, I imagine some new regulars!

        • Sarah

          All y’all are such good companyI will try to check in. I am a bit tied up Sundays,too, though. Then again, I’m earning my salary Thursdays, so “tied up” is relative.

      • Qitkat

        Do come :-) maybe someday you’ll want to watch the show, and you’ll be way ahead of those who have never read TLo.

      • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

        If you look at the number of comments here that have nothing to do with PR, it clearly doesn’t matter much :)

      • Peeve

        I had only been watching Mad Men sporadically and wasn’t all that into it until I started reading TLo’s recaps, and I especially loved their Mad Style posts (like so many others). Even if you don’t watch the show, it’s fascinating how complicated the style choices are. It’s definitely made watching Mad Men much more enjoyable. But there are still some things I’ve missed since I didn’t watch the early seasons, so I’m still catching up, too. Come on in, the water’s fine!

        • Sarah

          Indeed. I’m positivelyin awe of the Mad Style posts. Pure TLo mastery!

  • SewingSiren

    Why is Richard seated in the back with the early auf’s?

    • BrooklynBomber

      Stanley’s in the back. It looks like they’re not quite organized according to aufing-timing.

  • shopgirl716

    I’m in! As a die hard Megan defender, I will do it in the lounge as well.

    • http://www.facebook.com/pril.wood Pril Wood

      who is Megan?

  • http://www.katymcdermott.com KatyMightHave

    Mad Men TLounge? Whoop! Make mine a faux-anything, just as long as it’s served in a martini glass. And THANK YOU GUYS!!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/judy.julian77 Judy Julian

    TLounge for Mad Men? What a splendid idea!

  • guest2visits

    Woohoo! Another lounge! I was only hoping.

  • another_laura

    I’m so at T Lounge for Mad Men! Brilliant!

  • another_laura

    Who’s the guy in the purple caftan????? Wow, this is how much some of these folks did NOT register with me.

    • http://www.facebook.com/judy.julian77 Judy Julian

      I know. I don’t remember half these folks.

  • demidaemon

    I think I may skip this snipefest. Maybe I’ll catch it online or on repeat. Not feeling it tonight.

  • Qitkat

    Awesome to join everyone for the final PR TLounge for a long time to come, we can hope, especially for TLo”s sake. They deserve a golden statue of some kind, for sticking with this bamboozle. [I know that may not be the proper usage of the word, but I liked the way it sounded ;-p] And relief for all of us. Yay for the MadMen Lounge. I’ll see all of you there. Now for dinner, and something down n dirty to drink. Just like I hope the reunion is.

  • alula_auburn

    ooh, Mad Men in the TLounge? Sign me up!

  • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

    I bet Daniel felt like he looked old with the mustache.

    • http://www.facebook.com/judy.julian77 Judy Julian

      He looks 10 years younger without the facial hair.

      • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

        Yeah, but I think he actually looked more attractive with it. Maybe it’s the harsh slicked back hair he’s sporting now; maybe I just like it when guys look old (my celebrity crushes do tend toward the silver foxes and men with facial hair). But that’s me.

        • http://www.facebook.com/judy.julian77 Judy Julian

          I definitely like his PR hairstyle better than the one he’s sporting tonight.

    • alula_auburn

      He wouldn’t be wrong!

      • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

        I thought he looked better with it, but I like facial hair. See my response to Judy Julian.

    • MilaXX

      I think he proably read how people were grossed out with that nose hair ‘stache

    • MoHub

      I got the impression that he was owning his 50-year-old status and shaved to look mature. Unfortunately, his behavior still smacks of pre-adolescence.

  • alula_auburn

    Is Zara/Zanna/whoever’s dress meant to make her look like an umpire?

  • http://www.facebook.com/judy.julian77 Judy Julian

    I’m kind of digging Michelle’s antler earrings.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      Me too! They’re super chic in a dystopian lumberjack future sort of way.

    • guest2visits

      Really? They kind of scare me. Maybe that’s the intent – oversize horns that say ‘stay back’….and just in case you can’t see them, add some bright red stones to it.

    • MilaXX

      me three

  • alula_auburn

    OMG, that was AMAZING passive-aggression on Amanda’s part! “I’m just so sorry you have to watch yourself do that.” That is some Regina George shit.

    • formerlyAnon

      And yet, I feel that one could say that to many, many reality t.v. contestants is COMPLETE sincerity.

      • Indovina

        Just so.

        And you know, as amazingly passive-aggressive as it was, I think she was being completely sincere.

  • GenieinTX

    Is that girl really wearing a tiara? I sort of have to give her mad props. I’d love to wear a tiara in everyday life.

    • Colin

      She was my favorite bitchy one on the show. If only she was a little bit more talented

    • MilaXX

      maybe she’s a Mariah Carey fan

    • Danielle

      I love how she said they weren’t Disney Princesses while wearing a tiara and organza gown.

      • http://kathrynb.net/ Kate Borbas

        I was waiting for someone to call that out… I was like, WTF is it her wedding day?

  • OrigamiRose

    Daniel’s tie has to be an homage to the deceased pink jacket. Crafted from a scrap of the same fabric.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      You’re SO RIGHT.

    • formerlyAnon

      If true, I would find that very entertaining. And possibly endearing, depending.

    • Wellworn

      I thought that too!

  • formerlyAnon

    I can’t hang tonight, though I may check in to eavesdrop. And I will be spotty in my attendance at Madmen TLounge. But I want to acknowledge how fun TLounge is, I’m terribly grateful to our hosts and all the congenial fellow guests and I’ll not abandon it! Now somebody hand me a virtual bottle to go. Determined clerical drudgery of the “you’ll be sorry if you don’t do it now” awaits.

  • alula_auburn

    Ben thinks he’s much more interesting and insightful than he is. (He reminds me of way too many people from grad school, hahaha.)

    • Colin

      And talentless and had nothing to ‘contribute from his career’ like he said

  • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

    Pink pants girl – I can’t remember her name, she was first auf’d – reminds me of horrible girls I know in law school, and I don’t feel like any of this is dissuading me from the comparison.

    • MoHub

      Emily. Overconfident and undertalented.

  • CozyCat

    So far–for all the buildup about DRAMA!–this is a pretty average reunion session. Some people are explaining themselves. Some people are making things worse. Most people are making it clear that stress and lack of sleep contributed to much of the conflict.

    • Colin

      Which is good

      • CozyCat

        Exactly

  • http://www.facebook.com/judy.julian77 Judy Julian

    Is tiara girl wearing an evening gown? What is she….a Disney princess?

    • Colin

      “Noone here is a disney princess….per se (*looks to the side bashfully*)” I laughed out loud when she said that

    • alula_auburn

      After that last clip (tearful “Sometimes you just have to believe in yourself, even when no one else does!”) I’m going to be disappointed if it ends without her doing a power ballad.

  • guest2visits

    If you really want to get to the bottom of this back-stabbing, …it starts with a Z.

    Oh well, we knew this was not actually about bringing people ‘together’.

  • PastryGoddess

    Squeeeeeeeeeee

    Mad Men Sunday! I finally have people to drink with on Sundays.

  • alula_auburn

    Whenever I think Lifetime is scrapping the bottom of the barrel, they prove me wrong. The barrel is bottomless.

  • ChristinaRi

    The existential question: Can you hug and be mad?

    • MilaXX

      If it’s the one thing that will make the annoying person go away? Hell YES!

      • ChristinaRi

        Made me laugh! :D

    • CozyCat

      No way! The body just rebels and refuses to make the hugging motion. Just like how the female body will not allow itself to become pregnant from a rape.

      • http://www.GiftedCollector.com/ The Gifted Collector

        Only if it’s a legitimate rape.

  • DinaSews

    Time Warner cable strikes again Lifetime channel is frozen.

    • BeccaGo

      Time Warner is awful. Just ask Patrick Stewart. :)

  • Qitkat

    Whomever this woman is, she’s a lousy facilitator. She is allowing all the drama queens and kings to dominate the discussion. The lower key people are not getting to say anything. If they won’t jump in, ie interrupt, then she needs to call on them for their opinions so they can be more a true part of what is supposed to be a reunion show.

    • alula_auburn

      She’s terrible at asking questions, too.

    • Wellworn

      Do you think that every word and question wasn’t scripted by the producers beforehand? Each question came with a montage of clips. It was all written before the show. Also, the producers don’t want the lowkey people to participate. They want Drama with a capital D.

      • Qitkat

        I’m the eternal optimist. And I get let down again. Same old, same old. This was just the conversation in my living room. Doesn’t everyone play *if I ruled the world*?

      • alyce1213

        Of course the questions are scripted; it would be insane to do a TV show otherwise. But — she’s not good on the uptake, listening, follow-up, improvising to the unexpected.

    • http://www.facebook.com/pril.wood Pril Wood

      I like it better when Heidi asks the questions… she’s not afraid to jump right in and stir up something

    • MoHub

      They keep shoving Zanna down our throats, but she just comes right back up.

      • alyce1213

        Seems all you need these days is a Brit accent. Zanna-whatis-Rassi is pretty much an airhead.

  • ChristinaRi

    She’s hugging him, but is she still f’ing pissed?

  • MilaXX

    This is why I wasn’t gonna watch. I knew Dan would find a way to be butt hurt over every little thing.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      Right? “Your hug was inauthentic!” Oh brother.

      • http://twitter.com/mxmstrmnn max mustermann

        I need to work that into a conversation somehow.

  • http://www.facebook.com/judy.julian77 Judy Julian

    Oh, Daniel. Bless your heart.

  • AthenaJ

    Joe and his sweaters make me think of that Weezer song… “If Joe wants to make me a sweater (woah-woah-woah), hold this thread as I walk awaaaay”

  • CozyCat

    Everybody’s being really nice to each other. The producers must be PISSED!

  • http://www.facebook.com/judy.julian77 Judy Julian

    So far this has been a real snoozefest.

  • ChristinaRi

    I don’t agree with Patricia’s “Every time I did something completely new.” The clothing design was not something new — except for that avant guard hideousness. It was the embellishment or the textile that was different.

    Also Stanley? Nice tap dance around the question of why you weren’t prepared when you came to fashion week.

  • http://twitter.com/jenjw Jennifer White

    MAD MEN T-Lounge! Awesome!

  • AthenaJ

    Btw just wanted to add hooray for Rhode Island!! :)

    • Peeve

      Absolutely! I second that.

  • Colin

    I can’t stand Daniel

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      He’s such a drama queen.

      • http://twitter.com/mxmstrmnn max mustermann

        The meltdown over that crappy jacket was phenomenal.

        • HelenNPN

          Get over it.

  • ChristinaRi

    Is Patricia going to cop to being Heidi’s pet?

    • guest2visits

      You didn’t see her raise her hand when Zanna asked who was helped most by the team format, did you? Ohellno. She’s not going to concede she had any help.

      • ChristinaRi

        I had grown to like Patricia, but I came away from the show tonight thinking she was kind of fake.

  • AthenaJ

    Pfft, Patricia the only part of Nina you connected with was her gag reflex.

    • ChristinaRi

      Well she did say she connected with them all on different levels. :p

    OH MY GOD YOU’RE KEEPING THE LOUNGE OPEN!!!! That’s the best news I’ve gotten all week, and it’s been a week of good news already! Thanks guys!

    • 3boysful

      Well . . . ? Do share, Shannon!

  • AthenaJ

    Hehe I need a Tim Gunn app that spouts random Gunn-isms throughout the day.

  • BookishBren

    Glad to see I am not the only person who doesn’t watch Mad Men. I just couldn’t get into it. I hope TLo will start blogging other shows because I enjoy reading the non-MM blog posts.

    • Targettaste

      I also couldn’t get into it. I grew up in the Mad Men era, so I watched a few episodes for the nostalgia, but then it was mostly an embarrassment that we were ever that naive and unenlightened.

  • BeccaGo

    What did Michelle just say about Tim? He’s better than what?

    • IAmJ

      Santa. ;)

      • BeccaGo

        Gotcha. Thanx! :)

  • BeccaGo

    Well, that happened.

    *Yawn…*….I’m going to bed.

  • ChristinaRi

    Well, it was fun y’all! I enjoyed reading your comments all season. Thanks for the laughs and the insights. I’ll see you next season!

  • AthenaJ

    TLo, now that this Project Runway season is over, can you pretty pretty pleaaaase start recapping Dr Who again??

    Mad Men is practically made for TLOunging

    A Mad Men Lounge? I can die tonight a happy woman!

  • l_c_ann

    Goody for a Mad Men lounge. (and after Mad Men, maybe Boardwalk Empire?)

    Things left over from tonight:
    What was Tu walking on? hooves?
    Not nice the way Leanna’s pregnancy got a mention.
    Wonder how much got edited out of the Heidi Patricia connection?

    They certainly avoided showing the photospread from Marie Claire with Stanley’s jacket.

    The early outs must have been really bored where ever they were.

    • BrooklynBomber

      I missed it. what’s the Heidi Patricia connection?

  • BrooklynBomber

    Oh, God, I just noticed in the picture that Michelle has the Anya half-shave!?!?!

    • http://twitter.com/uyeahu Michelle Wilson

      Pretty sure it’s shaved on both sides.

    • Stubenville

      To “complement” her hideous hipster tattoos?

      While unleashing a flood of tears.

    Wow. Who knew Kate was such a bitter little princess? They don’t air her most vicious comments about Michelle. Saved those for the website.

    • Danielle

      I never think go to the website. Now I have to check it out. Thanks ;)

  • Indovina

    I have no idea why I’m watching this. In one of the posts about last week’s finale, someone made a comment about the previews to the effect that it looked horrible and I almost commented that the sad fact is that it’s probably nowhere near as bad as they’re trying to make it look. So far, that seems true – like most reunion episodes, it’s more boring than anything. The powers that be want it be worse than it is, because that’s what they’ve concluded the audience want.

    Oh well, at least it’ll be over soon now.

    On to other subjects:

    I stopped watching Mad Men after Season 4, for a variety of reasons (which I’ve said here before and which turned into an essay). Last week, I watched about 10 minutes of a new episode and came to the conclusion I’d made the right choice. The show may still be better than 95% of what’s on television, but it’s closer to 75% of what it once was. Maybe that’s unfair.

    Now, one might wonder why that would stop me from watching it, when, for some inexplicable reason, I’m currently watching a show that’s a tenth of what it once was. That’s a very good question. To me, they’re apples and oranges, though. I find that a show that. however good, is basically just fun is easier to take in its dotage than a show that is genuinely brilliant slipping to merely good.

    • judybrowni

      Yes. This.

      I’m still watching Mad Men, but every week seems to be a disappointment, in some fashion.

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    Sounds lovely! See you…wherever…

  • mhleta

    May I suggest The Rainbow Room for Mad Men?

  • BeeBeauNYC

    I would love a recap of this episode. Daniel is still a hot mess!

    • MoHub

      Me, too! T-Lo, we need your patented snark before we say a not-so-fond farewell to season 11.

    • http://www.facebook.com/pril.wood Pril Wood

      Agreed! While it isn’t much about the “fashion” to comment on the reunion, I’d still love to hear your 2 cents!

  • davidjp2

    Sorry, I still don’t get the Patricia love. Until someone can actually make an attractive dress out of her fabric, they are just art pieces. On TV screen, I don’t understand the greatness of her creations, maybe it is different story in person. Also, are people here much kinder toward struggle artists? Limited events I’ve been to, people were quite sharp on what they saw; although not viciously, still shocked me a bit.

    • http://twitter.com/jamiehoovs JLH

      I think Patricia seems cool/worldly but at times when I was watching the show, I think my thoughts were “Well, I think it’s pretty nifty to conceptualize fabric manipulation” but other than her first dress and KINDA the blue finale dress, her actual outfits & designs did not impress me in the slightest. I still have irrational rage over the thought that she should have won the Heidi PR Event; I see the outfit and go slightly insane inside.

  • Sunshine16

    TLOunge on Sunday night? A perfect way to put off Monday just a little longer…thanks boys!

  • http://viridianpostcard.blogspot.com/ viridian61

    I would so enjoy a Mad Men Lounge. I have wanted one for awhile but thought it too much to ask.

  • nosniveling

    Mad Men lounge- YESSS!

  • UsedtobeEP

    Yes, please. I was sad not to come to the Lounge either last night or this morning. Can’t wait!!

  • mrspeel2

    I’m watching the Reunion show online right now and it’s pretty striking to see that Daniel is far more handsome when he’s not moustachioed.

  • NoGovernmentName

    I do not get the Daniel hate. Just do not get it. I think he is sincere. He seems like a decent person. I would definitely rather have lunch with him than most of the other members of this cast. The people under 30 on this show were HORRIBLE this season.

  • http://twitter.com/TMamBo Therese Bohn

    I watched about the first 5 minutes of this, but just couldn’t get into it. Daniel did look much nicer without the mini-waxed handlebar ‘stache. When’s the next season of this silliness?

  • MartyBellerMask

    DAMN IT ALL TO HELL!!!!! If there was one reason to get cable it would be for MAD MEN TLounge. Weep, weep, weep….

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OQG2B3GDOIKSFYT6YDXFVOMEM4 A. Lure

    I didn’t watch and can’t be bothered to watch them hiss at each other; I’d be a waste of time. I came here in the hopes that TLo would have started clawing those decoy collections. That, I’ll read.

  • editrixie

    I’m late chiming in, but in my preparation for my trip next week to London (makes flaily arms), I came across a restaurant and bar called Skylon that my mid-century modern lovin’ heart definitely wants to see. Eero Saarinen chairs and tables, Danish modern furniture — might make a perfect TLOunge for Mad Men.
