Friday T LOunge

Posted on November 22, 2013

Cozy, yet airy. With flattering lighting and comfy seats. Is that so much to ask for in a T LOunge?

 

 

Tom’s Bar at the Augustine Hotel in Prague, Czech Republic.

 

We think not. Besides, something about the name of this place just … speaks to us, somehow.

So how all y’all doing? For once, we have no news. We’re slowly entering the publicity phase of our book release (2.4.14, bitches!) and it’s both exciting and daunting, although truth be told, when we look back at the past several years, we’ve gotten pretty good at doing press.

Look at us! Poledancing, darlings!

We’ll be launching a separate page to talk about the book, its release, and any press we’re doing for it. We’d promise to post reviews, but that seems like we’d be jinxing ourselves, somehow. Also, there’s a site redesign coming down the tubes. Brace yourself for it.

In other non-news, our weekend is all about this:

And this:

And when we say “our weekend,” we of course mean “Tom’s weekend,” since Lorenzo’s commitment to all things Who is decidedly relaxed; i.e., he’ll sit on the couch with his laptop and occasionally look up to ask what’s going on.

With Homeland and the Walking Dead on Sunday, this is shaping up to be a decidedly couch potato type of weekend.

  • quiltwombat

    Victor should have been sent home instead of Michael. Victor’s outfit was truly hiddy!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

      Viktor’s was made more nicely than Mychael’s, but the design of it was so awful. It did not bring gangsters to my mind at all, but a weirdly flamboyant James Bond.

  • lexilexi

    Yes, Walking Dead – Homeland (decidedly picking up steam) and…. Boardwalk Empire… it may be the season finale. GREAT year for that show.

    • Carrps

      I’m loving Homeland this season. Serious suspense every episode. And I love all the wheels with wheels.

      I haven’t watched Boardwalk Empire since the second season. Should I netflix it???

      • lexilexi

        AnneElliot would say no, but I love this season. Patricia Arquette, in a small but wonderful role, is esp. fantastic!

    • AnneElliot

      I’ve been increasingly disappointed with Boardwalk Empire this season, but I thought the first three seasons were great. I fell asleep during the last episode and still haven’t been motivated to watch the end. And what’s up with Margaret? She’s essentially disappeared from the show.

      • lexilexi

        Different strokes, I guess! Margaret – bigger things in store for her, is my guess.

      • CommentsByKatie

        I thought the last Boardwalk Empire was one of the worst episodes EVER. It moved so slow and nothing even happened, except in Jillian’s storyline. As for Margaret, I’ve hated her ever since she gave away Nucky’s land. Everytime she comes on the screen my husband and I yell at her. I’m glad she’s been absent.

  • EverybodysStarling

    Oh Mychael. That was so disco trekkie it made me cringe. But Victor’s was even worse.

    And Zenna is beeing really mean to Joffrey. I strongly disapprove that.

    • demidaemon

      I strongly approve of it, just because he’s annoying. Also, my dad, who never watches PR, questioned his neck tattoo. If that doesn’t say something, I don’t know what does.

      • Elizabeth Szubert

        I’m with EverybodyStarling with Zenna. She is not that mean to anyone else in the workroom and, to my memory, hasn’t been snarky to her at all. Maybe Zenna needs to step back and become more zen with the problem contestants.

        Re: the neck tattoo: Did you explain that the neck tattoo was inspired by Jeffrey’s son and/or what it says? It says: Harrison Detroit Il’amor de la mia vita. The second part translates to love of my life. I think it’s sweet.

        • demidaemon

          I did. Still thought it was weird. Part of the problem is that Jeffrey is so often shot from a significant distance that it looks like a scribble. he didn’t stay for any confessionals or the runway, so…

          • Elizabeth Szubert

            I thought he had a confessional or two this week? Seth Aaron was missing in confessionals, but I could be wrong.

            And I apologize if it seems that I just want to argue with you. It is not the case; I’m more curious on a different take than the one I’m having with Jeffrey. :)

          • kimmeister

            I think demidaemon means that the disapproving dad didn’t stay to watch the confessionals.

          • Elizabeth Szubert

            Oh! That makes a lot more sense. Thank you. It’s the end of the week and I’m a bit dense.

          • demidaemon

            Yes. I am sorry for my pronoun error. I should know better!

      • EverybodysStarling

        Like I’ve said before, I’ve got a soft spot for Jeffrey. But besides that, I would disapprove that with every designer. Her job is to point out flaws and motivate them. Not being like: “WHAT? YOU’RE REALLY STILL HERE? CAN’T BELIEVE IT!”

      • StillGary

        We just watched the Internship and busted up over Will Farrell’s neck tattoo. According to his character is read (in sanscript): “Make reasonable choices.”

    • guest2visits

      It feels like part of the plot; give Jeffrey a hard time because of past behavior….etc
      His problems with the dress-form, and now the male model-measurements, I wondered if it was all meant to trip him up – but then they over praised his design and gave him the win.

      • AnneElliot

        I agree that the dress form made me skeptical, but the fact that his model’s measurements were drastically different were completely valid — the coat was very form fitting and the model hadn’t been measured properly in a year! That could have been an absolute disaster. I’m just glad he recovered because I loved the coat. It was the best thing he’s done all year. I’ve liked him much better personally this time around (except the ridiculous mustache) but I’ve been really disappointed with his designs.

        • guest2visits

          It was a terrible thing to do – giving him the wrong measurements; and it seemed like a deliberate prank on behalf of PR. He did recover well, even though he had a legitimate reason to go ballistic.
          I still think he’s got some Jeffrey sized BS in reserve, but I think age often brings out the mellow, too. He’s not such an ass this time around. I truly loved the idea for the coat, but in the end, for me – it seemed unfinished with horrendous pockets.

          • EverybodysStarling

            He is nicer this time around. When he’s talking about the other designers, it’s almost positive all the time. And yes, he snapped with the measurement-situation, but he seemed to have calmed down quite quickly – and he apologized, which surprised me quite a bit.

    • lillyvonschtupp

      I don’t. Since when do you have to be nice to that dickhead?

  • FunButNutz

    When in a crisis Michael always goes for that tacky gold lame…..seems like he’ll never learn. Someone needs to slap that fabric out of his hand!

  • Ros

    Poor production planning. Clearly there were no aufs last week because of the pairs game this week. But last week there were 2/3 utterly appalling looks that barely did the minimum job of clothes: cover the body and stay in one piece to the end of the runway. While this week, they were all pretty good. Even Mychael’s look might have scraped through on the basis of the pants, against a weaker runway.

    • kimmeister

      Good catch about the pairs. It was pretty remarkable how well all the pairs got along this time around.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

    Why didn’t Alyssa say “the beautiful Austin Scarlett?” He deserves it as much as Georgina, especially since he was standing in for her last night.

    I loved the judging panel this week, aside from Isaac. It was nice to see Elie again, and how he smiled so much as he watched the runway show. Bar Rafeli was so focused on the judging criteria, to evoke Bonnie and Clyde. It seemed like she was doing serious work, and making sense! Maybe she should take over as the next host of PRAS. If they do it again.

    I was impressed with a lot of the entries, except Elena’s.She was safe when I thought she should have been out. Her look was not very 1930’s to me. Sure they were asked to modernize it, but one cape flap in an all-black outfit? Yuck. And I don’t agree with Palu being in the top three for such a basic dress. He should have been just safe, but Mizrahi fawned over him so much. (I saw someone on TWoP forums called him “I-suck Miserably,” Ha!) I
    loved Korto’s outfit.

    Alyssa’s really relaxing into her role as host. And wasn’t this the first time she hugged a designer after proclaiming the out?

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      Am I crazy? I LOVED Korto’s men’s wear and she was only safe? That seemed hella wrong.
      I have not understood the judges decisions AT ALL this season.

      • demidaemon

        Oh I totally agree! Her best output by far this season. She should really branch out into menswear–clearly, she has a knack for it. As for the runway itself, I loved the majority of what was up there. For me, the most problematic outfit was Jeffrey’s. I pretty much hated it and it’s lack of shape. Even men want their figures to look shapely (it’s just a different shape!), not like a giant column. The pants sucked too.

        As for the judges decisions, we are all missing two important things for understanding: BM Koolaid, which inspires the chosen one’s decisions and crack, Lots and lots of crack.

        • kimmeister

          It was killing me how much they were all loving Jeffrey’s ugly pants. What the heck?

          • Sarah

            Me too. They were so lame.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            Last week in the Lounge someone correctly foresaw a Jeffrey win in the air for this episode. Cynical, or are the BK’s simply way ahead of the B/M gremlins?

            I liked the fabric that Jeffrey chose for the coat,and the lines, but wasn’t crazy about the detailing.

          • Sarah

            Were there not pockets on that thing that were big enough for a watermelon? Frikkin’ HUGE.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            The pockets and the trim that Jeffrey used on them were one of the elements that I didn’t like.

          • AnneElliot

            I agree — high water pants, no socks. Irina should have won, and Korto should have been in the top 10 over Christopher. I hated the sheer skirt on that dress.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            Since so many designers are sending these sheer skirts done the runway I think that they themselves should be required to wear such garments whenever they make a public appearance-especially if the temperature is below freezing. That might begin to put a stop to this silliness.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        Of course you’re crazy, but this is not why.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

        If you’re crazy, so am I. I wanted Korto to win (and Elena to be out).

    • Winter_White

      Elie made me smile when he said of Viktor’s jacket, “I know they’re from the South…but they’re not cowboys, are they?”

      Loved the color of Seth Aaron’s, but good grief, his styling! That was just odd.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        The dress was great. The styling, not so much.

    • anneland

      Yes — “the beautiful Austin Scarlett”

    • Sarah

      RE: Alyssa, she looked better this week, too. I don’t mean that highlighter-colored romper, cuz no. But her hair looks better down, and softer. And maybe her Botox is settling in too. Her face doesn’t seem as stiff.

    • conniemd

      Apparently Mizrahi picks a favorite pretty gay boy to fawn over every season. His modus operandi.

      • Carrps

        Chris and Anthony Ryan could be siblings. He definitely has a type.

      • demidaemon

        Sorry, Isaac, giving them the win is not going to make them want to blow you.

        • EveEve

          wanna bet?

    • Lisa_Co

      I agree,Misha, especially about Bar. She would make a great new host. I am NOT liking Alyssa.

  • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

    Well Kittens, never let anyone tell you Astrology is a crock. Sagitarians are well known for their spontaneity, and I just decided, about three hours ago, to take my youngest and hit the road for trip to my Granma’s, a short five hours away. I’m “finishing my work” here at the offfice, Hubs is bringing daughter and the bag he packed for me any minute now. I’ll be missing all the lounge fun. Y’all have a fantabulous weekend!!

    • demidaemon

      You too! Safe driving and all that!

    • Sarah

      I’m a Sag, too! I’m spontaneously doing jack shit. Have fun!

      • sisterb67

        Heh. Another Sag here, and I just spontaneously canceled my plans so I can go home, put on my pajamas, and watch the crazypants batshit insane train wreck that

    • Fordzo

      Dammit! I’m going to bring up vaginal rejuvenation at some point, too, and I was eager to hear your opinion.

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

        TRIP CANCELLED. I can’t miss that! Sorry Granma, you and BFE Mississippi will just have to do without. : )

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        Just so you know, I am waiting with bated breath.

      • formerlyAnon

        Skimming through the lounge belatedly but I’m on the look out now for your contributions. Basically, I’m waiting with Swiftlytiltingplanet.

  • Maggie

    Yay! Who weekend! I hope you guys post a review of the 50th episode :-)

  • demidaemon

    Here is my life comment for the week, in an ambiguous way: Online dating is not always the cesspool it seems to be. Discuss. ;)

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      I believe that. If one can make friends through blogging, as I have, and through other forms of social media, surely one can meet and get to know decent, funny, not creepy people through online dating. Good on you!!

    • Sarah

      Oh, it sure was whenever I tried it. I’m off the market now, but my last online date was a guy who seemed really cool, and during the course of the date he informed me he was on disability for a mental condition, lived with his ex but slept in a recliner in the basement, and had six kids – wait, seven if you count the one her parents had custody of. Real champ. Glad to hear it works for somebody…

      • demidaemon

        Wow. There are no words. Great story, though.

        • Sarah

          Well, I got a free dinner. And I totally hit that. He wasn’t bad lookin. Just a weirdo.

          • demidaemon

            That is kinda awesome. I just hope you didn’t become baby mama #8.

          • Sarah

            Oh hell no. I was totally shielded two or three ways. Ew.

      • formerlyAnon

        You gotta wonder about someone who has that story and isn’t bright enough to lie on the first date.

        • Sarah

          He had done quite a bit of impressing me with his literary knowledge prior to our meeting. I was wooed by his interest in the same types of fantasy and sci-fi books that I like, and had never had the pleasure of discussing with a potential mate before. He was very smart and seemed quite charming. I gathered he felt that our meeting was just the icing on the cake of a future of he and I sharing my salary, his disability check and my condo, and the details were just a formality.

          • formerlyAnon

            That’s disturbing but hilarious! There are some nutters out there, for sure.

    • Fordzo

      My only experience in internet dating was with a man who sounded really nice on the phone, but then (on our first date) he turned out to be a guy who flosses his teeth at every red light (seriously – EVERY red light! How were his gums not bleeding?) and then examines the specimens he removes intently.

      • Sarah

        HA. My friend’s mom had a guy who met her for a date after many emails and phone conversations, and she found out only then that he had claws for hands. She had to cut his meat for him. She said she wouldn’t have been mad about the claws if he just would’ve told her, but the lying was what made her not want to talk to him again.

        • Fordzo

          LOL, ohmygod I just snorted a potato chip.

          “I wouldn’t have minded the claws, but the deception was a bridge too far.”

        • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

          Y’all are killing me!!! I heart the Bitter Kittens so damn hard.

        • kimmeister

          Thank goodness she didn’t let him attempt second base.

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            I just spit on my screen.

          • Fordzo

            There goes a chip up the other nostril.

        • decormaven

          That. Is. Classic!

    • Peeve

      My BFE started dating a guy he met online. CFO of a major bank. Second date had to be canceled due to work conflict. Online guy texted my BFE that he wanted a picture of his feet to tide him over till their next date. (ew…) BFE thought about it, then decided, oh, what the hell. Then online guy decided to stipulate how he should wash his feet, how he should clip his toenails, etc., before the picture was taken. EEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWW! That was the end of that. (And a great story….)

      • kimmeister

        I know what a CFO is, but I have no idea what a BFE is.

        • Peeve

          A BFE means “I’m an idiot”. I meant BFF. It’s been a long day…Actually I think BFE stuck in my head from Annabelle’s post!

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            Yay! Another special BK code word!

          • Peeve

            I feel special, now. Who knew stress, stupidity, and Bailey’s could produce a new code word?

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            Bailey’s is like magic.

          • Peeve

            Damn straight!

          • Sarah

            I was like – okay. I can figure this out. Best friend’s ex? Boy friend entertainer? Big fat ego? I’m relieved.

          • kimmeister

            I thought it was Peeve’s way of being fancy and saying Best Friend Eternally. We are creative, aren’t we?

          • LJCdoc

            That’s really good, because I just googled it and it means “Bum Fuck Egypt”. Which would be weird.

          • kimmeister

            I actually googled it and didn’t think you meant Bachelor of Forest Engineering or some of the other unsavory definitions I saw, so I had to ask. :-)

          • Peeve

            OMG, I’m dying! Thanks, all.

          • VioletFem

            I was reading BFE as “Best Friend Ever”. Although, I’ve ever heard anyone refer to their friend in that way, but it works either way! On a side note that is a hilarious story.

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

            I’m so relieved. I spent several minutes trying to decipher BFE before I read your correction. The most I could come up with that fit the rest of your story was Best Friendfor Ever.

      • formerlyAnon

        THAT is a really great story. And when you think about it, in this case the online dating was a pretty efficient winnowing process, on both sides.

    • muelonil

      I actually met my husband through online dating. Best decision of my 20s :)

      • Carrps

        My best friend found her husband on Craig’s List. It’s been nearly ten years, and her parents still don’t know.

        • demidaemon

          That is something I might be embarrassed to bring up. Craigslist is not known for its subtlety or seriousness.

    • formerlyAnon

      I know people who’ve found satisfactory dates & some new acquaintances and even friends from online dating sites, though not anyone who’s found a lasting relationship. The horror stories I’ve heard actually aren’t any worse than the ones I’ve heard about blind dates mediated by friends or relatives. I’m not actively looking & haven’t even tried to tap the possibilities of my friend network and of the many things to do to meet people in my large, friendly city, so I can’t see myself looking on line. At this time.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

      I’ve only been an observer of online dating (hilarious) but I have been to a wedding of a couple who met that way, and several other friends have found longterm partners.

    • tinyredlocks

      I’ve found the online dating gene pool to be very shallow, with really murky water. Translation-I’ve had NO luck at all. However, I have two friends that met very nice men online and got married, so it worked well for them.

  • mmebam

    What was up with Viktor’s jacket?

    • Sarah

      He was told to edit that mofo. He shoulda done it.

      • MilaXX

        yep that jacket would have been much better without the fringe

        • Eric Stott

          It was sort of like cocktail party goes disco

    • Eric Stott

      Poor execution- not only was the jacket opening far too wide (it looked like the top of a woman’s gown) but the shirt was a terrible fit. I think his design was flawed from the beginning – it would have looked perfectly at home on a Gay chorus boy in a production of CABARET.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        Misha Foomin said that it looked like a flamboyant James Bond which made me think Gay James Bond, but I didn’t say that because it would be homophobic because I’m not a gay BK… :)

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

          “Weirdly flamboyant,” because James Bond is supposed to be this super macho guy, sleeping with women all over the place, and Viktor’s got him doing undercover as a casino boat waiter, but then he turns around and has purple fringe on the back. Bond, what? You’re not doing it right.

  • Fordzo

    Today I went to Walmart to get my magazines, and a strange man there kept saying, “Hey Miss Ohio! Hey Miss Ohio!” to me. We are not in Ohio. I am not a Miss. But I’m telling everyone I’m a beauty queen and that, henceforth, I prefer to be addressed as Miss Ohio.

    • Sarah

      Own it. Somebody told me I looked like Sally Struthers, once. I didn’t know what to do with that.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        As long as they didn’t say that you sound like her (her voice just grates), I think you’re okay.

        • Sarah

          I so wanted to ask “Young or like, hungry children era?” but you just can’t. I assume young, since I was. I think it had to do with my hairdo at the time. It was Struther-esque.

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            She was kind of adorable on Gilmore Girls.

          • sisterb67

            Oh my lord, YES. Babette was hilarious – and Morey was such a great foil. I especially loved Babette and Miss Patty busting on East Side Tilly all the time.

          • Fordzo

            I was going to make a snark about “were you surrounded by hungry children” but I thought it sounded mean. But since you brought it up…

      • Fordzo

        My son told me a couple weeks ago that I looked like Lydia Deetz. It wasn’t the look I was going for.

        • kimmeister

          I had someone compare me to Michelle Kwan as a pickup line. It failed resoundingly.

        • Carrps

          But not as bad as it could have been considering his source material.

    • kimmeister

      He wasn’t Japanese, was he? Since “ohio” is “good morning” in Japanese.

  • Sarah

    I know Viktor is probably better overall, but based on his work last night, his was worse than Mychael’s. Mychael’s pants were great! And Jeffrey, jeez. That looked so not B&C I don’t even know WTF. I can’t complain anymore. I’m just glad they didn’t gush over Elena’s for once. Korto should’ve gotten more recognition, and I like Christopher, but how many times is he gonna get praised for a slip?

    • demidaemon

      I would have eliminated Jeffrey flat out, so there is a clear demarcation between where I stand and where the judges stand. Also, best menswear challenge in PR history?

      • Sarah

        Yeah, I really liked the inspiration. They’ve had better inspirations on this season of All-stars than any in recent PR history, I’ll give ‘em that.

        • demidaemon

          I was definitely speaking more to the product, but, yes, I loved the inspiration, too.

          • Sarah

            Yes, inspiration equaled better products. When I think about some of the horrendous menswear that has been seen on that runway, holy moly. For sure, this was far and away the best.

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            But not nearly as funny as the Thunder from Down Under episode!

          • Sarah

            THIS is what I was thinking of when I typed “horrendous.” But yes, also hilarious.

          • MilaXX

            That movie/mini series looks awful and I will be avoiding it like the plague.

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            Especially since Bonnie & Clyde were not glamorous in the least.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            Well, Lifetime would never let historical accuracy get in the way of glamming up a pair of outlaws. I’m already hating the commercial-that renditiion of “BangBang” is lame.

          • Carrps

            I have no idea who that Holiday Grainger (sp?) person is, but she’s an awful choice for Bonnie. The real Bonnie was scrawny and looked hard. HG looked like an overstuffed school girl.

          • decormaven

            There was a little snippet in Entertainment Weekly about the costuming of that flick. Clyde’s suits are all vintage- costumer said men’s fabrics as constructed in the 30s are non-existent today. I’d watch for that alone.

          • Sarah

            I got the distinct feeling that that is what they are hoping for. As in: we shilled this show on PRAS because we want to start a new trend of THIRTIES since everyone already got excited about TWENTIES from Downton Abbey last year. I’m sure there’re all kinds of conversations going on in pr and r&d offices about how “30’s looks are the new thing. We must strike while the iron is HOT!”

          • decormaven

            I think the next big trend will come out of American Hustle. Lots of 70s slinky disco wear coming from that flick.

          • Sarah

            This, I can get on board with. As a dedicated Funkateer, it’s the only type of clothing that suits my partytimes, anyway.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

        Absolutely the best menswear output… In The History of Project Runway! Seriously, they missed thier opportunity to have Tim Gunn come in to say that.

        But I am being serious about it too. Really great menswear last night.

      • MilaXX

        Ironically yes. Even if you didn’t like every look, they were all complete and not falling off of them. I guess that’s a small feather in the “All Stars” status for these designers. They could at least complete a mens wear look.

      • conniemd

        And they made them all in one day – men’s jacket and pants, that is really hard to do. Some looked more 30’s inspired than others and I totally didn’t get any 30’s inspiration from Jeffrey’s coat.

        • Eric Stott

          It wasn’t very 30’s but it was a very good coat and looked great on the model. That outfit saved his scrawny ass from an auf.

          I’ll amend that remark – the coat didn’t have any reference to 30’s styles for MEN, but I could see that straight severe cut suiting a woman of the times quite well – with of course the addition of a fur collar.

        • Lisa_Co

          I thought Jeffrey’s coat had a very Asian feel to it. Not at all B&C.

    • Winter_White

      “And Jeffrey, jeez. That looked so not B&C I don’t even know WTF.”
      Ha — didn’t you love that Christopher likened it to a Bond villain look? (Spoken with mock arch-villain expression and cat-stroking pantomime.)

      • Sarah

        THAT is why I said I liked him ;)

        • AnneElliot

          I didn’t like Christopher the first time around, but I’ve loved him this season every since he compared Jeffrey’s avante garde look to the leg lamp from A Christmas Story. I think he’s going to give us all the best quotes this season.

          • Sarah

            Always thought he was cute, but first time around he seemed like Costello II, so now I’m seeing him for his own man. And yeah, I find his down-low bitchery delicious.

    • Chartreusite

      I’m not shocked Viktor got to stay, but I thought it was crazy the way Alyssa said “Oh you just weren’t able to fully realize your vision” and then turned to Mychael and called his look a tacky mess when Viktor had back-fringe in his look. I’m just so confused…

  • Swiftlytiltingplanet

    I really liked Seth Aaron’s and did not see the attraction of Christopher’s at all – I agreed with Alyssa about all the horizontal lines and did not understand the praise of the belt. Did he make it or just add to one from the wall?

    Korto’s pants were the only ones that made any sense. I might have liked Jeffery’s jacket if it were shorter.

    • Sarah

      Kinda thought Mychael’s pants looked good, too. High waist and all. But his jacket was unfortunate. I don’t know why the judges were so hot for Jeffrey’s rolled up no sock loose pant look, which only added to the flasher effect when combined with that coat.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        Mychael’s still had that weird cuff thing going on – though not as noticeable because he put socks on his model – but at least they were even.

        • Sarah

          Interesting how everyone seemed to feel that a cuffed pant for men and some sort of leather holster apparatus up top (for both men or ladies) spoke to the challenge’s parameters.

          • Eric Stott

            Christopher’s dress wasn’t all that bad, but I’m surprised that none of the judges called it for being too literal- if it wasn’t for the transparency of the chiffon skirt it could have passed for a 30’s dress. Seth Aaron rightfully was called on that, though I thought his outfit was quite good.

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            It’s so lovely to see you!

            Plaid!

          • Eric Stott

            The episide could have used some plaid – but honestly, even the stuff I didn’t like was miles better than the crap that goes down most runways – the designers stepped up their game a bit this week.

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            Aside from Christopher – which was just more of the same – everyone was at least interesting. Which was great to see.

          • Eric Stott

            and with Christopher I do appreciate his competence – it was nicely made

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            I’ll give you that. It was just boring.

          • Sarah

            Yes, good but costumey. I’m really surprised the term “steampunk” didn’t get bandied about, since they love to use it whenever someone dangles a watch from a belt. Or maybe that’s just Heidi.

          • Eric Stott

            Yes- definitely costumey, though in a good way. That holster-like detail around the shoulders wasn’t bad, but around the waist it was clunky – maybe if it had been executed in something sleeker. BTW you’re right, that dangling watch was pretty stupid. Everyone had this concept of Bonnie & Clyde getting rich and luxurious, which is a completely bogus notion. In every one of their pictures they look as if they got their clothes from a dime store- and it’s part of their image.

          • Swiftlytiltingplanet

            They were, for all intents and purposes, homeless. And mean.

          • Sarah

            For sure. I think most people in the 30’s looked like they got their clothes from the dime store. It was the depression! If they were rich, they wouldn’t have been robbing folks! Silly. But yes, Seth Aaron’s was well made. I liked her tights.

          • Sabin

            I didn’t quite get the requirements being “glamorous and luxurious.” Nothing says glamor and luxe quite like the Great Depression.

          • Eric Stott

            It was a poorly thought out effort to publicize a crappy movie

          • AnneElliot

            “Nothing says glamor and luxe quite like the Great Depression” — you win!! I almost knocked my Cheerios on the floor, I laughed so hard. Thank you!!

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

            I think the glamorous and luxurious image of the ’30s comes from the movies of the day which were meant to distract people from the Depression. Think Fred Astaire and you picture luxe settings with fabulous Art Deco furniture. Think Ginger Rogers and it’s flowing satin gowns.

          • Sarah

            Good point.

          • AnneElliot

            That’s true!! Irina’s gown would have fit in one of those fabulous ballroom scenes, though she’d have to lose the enormous jacket. I loved it but what’s with the extra-long sleeves?

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            The judges apparently were giving Christopher credit for picking up on the trend of sheer over a short skirt(just think how they would have swooned if he’d done sheer over granny panties).

          • unbornfawn

            Christopher seems to be the designer chosen to be overpraised this season. His dress wasn’t horrible, just bland, the holster was doing all the work. So nice to see men’s wear on the runway that wasn’t completely embarrassing.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            Christopher was overpraised during his season on PR, to the point that I had resigned myself to his winning the whole shebang.

      • MilaXX

        The jacket would have been okay of it wasn’t for that metallic leather

        • Sarah

          Yeah all black would’ve been better. Kinda liked the asymmetrical lapel action.

  • Pound of Salt

    I do think Mychael’s jacket would have looked more expensive in just the shimmery gold, without the trendy leather contrast.

    • Eric Stott

      I think it still wouldn’t have looked good – it looked like something a waiter might have worn in the 30’s.

      • Carrps

        Or a carpark valet. And what was with the brown leather belt hanging out? NG.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      The choice of metallic bronze was a misstep on Mychael’s part. I had a feeling his time was up, particularly since he was in the bottom last week, but I’ll miss him-he was always a favorite of mine.

  • Judy_J

    Let me just put in another pitch for the TLo publicity machine to make a stop in Austin, TX. I promise you a royal reception. All your Austin-based Bitter Kittens will be in attendance, I assure you!

    • formerlyAnon

      Yes.

    • AnneElliot

      And San Antonio! It’s only 90 miles, we could organize a road trip!!

  • SewingSiren

    Korto should have won. She had an amazing look for men’s wear. I also liked Elena’s . Both really updated the 30’s gangster look.
    My favorite of the judges top three was Irina. Lovely skirt . Stunning jacket. The bodice was just okay.
    My least favorite was Christopher’s . It looked like he just used the color from the movie clip and made the same old sheer on top of mini that has been all over the runway for two years and is currently in mid range to budget stores.

    • MilaXX

      I liked her jacket but the only pair I really liked was Jeffrey/Seth Aaron. Everyone else had bit and pieces I liked but not an entire outfit much less an entire look.

      • Imasewsure

        Agreed I thought Jeffrey actually deserved the win but I didn’t think they would give it to him since his look was sort of muted and some of the others were flashier…. I didn’t mind SA’s look either but I guess they are getting down to the wire and someone had to be in the bottom.

        Mychael’s was awful though – hated to see him go but it made sense

        • Eric Stott

          He has always had taste issues- I took one look at that cap he was wearing & wanted to wash the pimp out of my eyes.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            Mychael’s final collection remains one of PR’s all-time disappointments-Urban safari-shiny satin and plunging necklines

      • Eric Stott

        Korto’s jacket was nice, but I can’t see any 30’s in it at all- and it would have looked better on the woman.

        • MilaXX

          I had a hard time seeing any 30’s inspiration in most of the looks. I liked SethAaron/Jeffrey and although I hated the fringe, my runner ups would have been Chris/Viktor. The others made nice pieces, just not really 30’s or Bonnie/Clyde inspired.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            I wasn’t seeing much of the 30’s either in the looks the designers turned out. They get that brief that they are supposed to reference the 30’s, but also be fashion forward, or bring the look into the present-but maybe they word the challenge in a way so that the judges have lots of wiggle room in case their favorite doesn’t need the brief-but then, I’m just cynical and jaded.

    • Chartreusite

      Agreed. I was shocked Elena and Korto weren’t in the top and I have a really bad feeling that it doesn’t bode well for the both of them if that kind of work doesn’t get recognized.

    • guest2visits

      I saw the same thing about Christopher’s fabric. The style was right, the holster-belt thing was a good idea too, but his design still felt lacking. I guess I prefer Irina’s; she seemed to really get into the Bonnie story.

  • Imasewsure

    I think a poledance/book tour by our dear uncles deserves some new frocks (and by frocks of course I mean any of the “coat porn” entries from the last few weeks)…

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      YES. that’s what i want, full fashion review and commentary on all the TLo looks for the tour. don’t hold back, uncles. this is your moment to shine in the spotlight!

  • Eric Stott

    Irina’s gown was beautiful, but very literal – I don’t care for the jacket but the little hat was a very nice modern interpretation of the 30’s.

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      I didn’t like the length. I mean, I did, but not for the challenge. The jacket was a nice counterpoint, but I think a little much.

      • Eric Stott

        I see what you mean about the length – take away the jacket & dress it with some diamonds, opera length gloves and a fur stole, and you’d have a stunning Hollywood look.

    • Demeter

      I loved Irina’s gown and jacket. Elie Tahari said it best. The gown is beautiful and luxurious but the jacket gives the ensemble an edge. I love Tahari’s clothes and I love his judging. I bet he would not be manipulated into praising some teacher’s pet’s design. (Christopher). Isaac Mizrahi is starting to be very predictable in this area.

      • Eric Stott

        Mizrahi doesn’t even have as much integrity as Kors.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          Mizrahi’s so painfully obvious when he has chosen a pet designer. It’s embarrassing to watch.

          • Eric Stott

            When he opens his mouth it’s almost “I love your work” (and I want to bl*w you)

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        I thought that Elie Tahari was an excellent guest judge. His comments were thoughtful, and the designers seemed really happy to get feedback from him.

      • conniemd

        I loved Tahari’s judging. His clothes are not always innovative, but he understands what looks beautiful on women and has good taste. Mizrahi, as I said previously is so obviously biased to the gay designer he covets, as was said by others. Christopher is Anthony Ryan part deux.

  • Swiftlytiltingplanet

    Styled to Rock is starting. Anyone watching?

    • MilaXX

      I tried one ep. I don’t think I made it 10 mins in.

      • Swiftlytiltingplanet

        It has some good points – I like the pull and they did a no-black challenge – but I am weary of rock “star” challenges. I realize that’s the whole point of the show, but it’s a one way monkey of a show.

        • Chartreusite

          The pull element is really a strong asset to the show. It puts the fire under people’s butts if they keep not getting pulled and it also rewards those that are able to execute their idea in the time allotted.

    • Chartreusite

      I didn’t watch tonight’s episode (hopefully it’ll be up on youtube) but I am actually really digging the show. Most of the winner looks have made sense to me (which is more than I can say about Project Runway) and I feel like the challenge dictates are always clearly stated and make sense. I think the only win I’ve been a little unsure about was the Kylie Minogue challenge, but even then it did make sense. I think it shows a very practical mind in how designers design stagewear and looks for music celebrities, and it’s sorta engrossing for me.

      • demidaemon

        Man, she needs to stop whining all the time. I am over it. Adam needs to take it down two levels and I would be fine with him.

  • Sarah

    I’m out ya’ll. The mister has just gotten through with the Richmond Tattoo Convention, so I’m picking him up to see what new ink he has procured. (Oy). Drinks and dinner will ensue. Catch you on the flip side!

    • Swiftlytiltingplanet

      Tattoo Convention? I am so intrigued.

      • Sarah

        Tis a gathering of tattoo artists from all over at the convention center. You can go and check out their work, see who you like, maybe get some work done. T-shirts, stickers, business cards, heavily tattooed peeps, etc. My fella got a gratis version of the emblem from Blackbeard’s flag on his hand. He was born in NC, and looks like ‘ol Edward Teach himself, black beard and all, so he thought it fitting.

  • NMMagpie

    Top Team: Seth Aaron and Jeffey. Jeffrey’s coat minus the tantrum, was a stand out. I loved Seth Aaron’s look. Yeah, it was over the top but well made.

    Korto’s look was awesome and once again, next to no recognition for it. I know guys who would throw down for that jacket. Elena’s look was so Elena, I kind of dismissed it.

    Irina’s look was only OK for me. The coat was way too much and too referential to her PR collection. The bodice for the dress looked kinda cheap but the skirt was terrific. Mychael’s look was really unfortunate. Who decided that belt was a good idea? His pants were the best part of the look.

    Team Irritation: Christopher and Viktor. I am getting rather bugged with Christopher getting the winner’s edit. That dress was a snooze. If he had not been helped by that belt and Viktor teaching him about cutting fabric… oh what am I saying? He would have gotten praise anyway. Viktor, on the other hand… dude needs to learn how to edit. That shirt and jacket were just awful. And that bowtie! His pants, however, was pretty fabulous. In my opinion, he’s a better designer than Christopher and it sure did not show.

    I wish we had seen more of Austin’s comments. I love the guy. I found it interesting that Ms. Rafaeli was always referring back to the challenge. That’s way too much focus for PRAS judging. Elie Tahari had clearly bathed in the Parsons kool-aid and was a silly as any other sitting judge.

    Too bad Isaac did not get introduced as gorgeous.

    • MilaXX

      I agree about Irina’s look and I though her skirt was way too long and too big. Between the jacket and that skirt the clothes were swallowing her model.

    • Chartreusite

      Agreed on all fronts. I was honestly a little miffed that they decided to have a team challenge and not judge it as a cohesive team. I feel like they kinda made themselves separate each team into a winner and loser, because I have no clue how Seth Aaron ended up on bottom and Christopher and Irina ended up on the top. I do agree that Irina’s skirt was beautiful, but wow it was just such a disjointed look and it along with Mychael’s look just felt so off the mark from the challenge. The color story was weird and didn’t read as modern to me. I second the comments on Christopher; it’s almost insulting that the editors show us all these comments about how lacking in knowledge he is and how basic his designs are yet he gets such a tongue bath from the judges. I know design isn’t all about how crazy you can go with your construction and elements, but I do feel like there needs to be significant and new interest rather than a belt or using curtain fabric for a dress. Over him and if he wins I’m probably giving up All-stars for good.

      Yay you. I bet you looked fab!

      • Pennymac

        Thanks, I think I did. And I PAID for my clothes AND my shoes, which fit, by the way. LOL

  • guest2visits

    I liked the panel of judges again this week, although Georgina was absent – maybe it was coincidence, but seemed like everyone got a more thorough, and flattering intro. Just sayin. Alyssa is also improving as hostess. I don’t seem to care if she says some crack things now and again.
    I agree with the auf; Mychael’s design was neither this decade or the 30s. Tacky copper-lame’ fabric and an odd combination of effects. 80s maitre d.
    I’m ready to hunt down the camera person again for lousy coverage of the finished results. I don’t think I even saw Korto’s entire design until the stills. Hardly anyone’s design got good coverage below the waist. Maybe Christopher or Jeffrey; but that’s because they were discussed. I didn’t even know Mychael had rolled up the bottom of his pant legs too. Or why Elie commented he’d never seen that before when referring to Jeffrey’s pant…. It’s been a trend for the past couple of years now. Which adds to one more fashion trend I’m not a fan of; precious little rolled up cuffs on man-pants. BEGIN RANT: I can tolerate the rolled up look on khakis or lighter wear, even jeans (if it’s one flip up), but the rolled up effect on dress pants or quality fabric is too much for me to bear. For Jesus and all the Saints above; just design them to be shorter trousers. With or without a narrow flat cuff. Please. END RANT
    I liked Jeffrey’s design, but not enough for the win. I loved where he was going with the overcoat, but I cringed at the large roundish pockets outlined like a stencil. The effect reminded me of kids clothes, or possibly a woman’s coat. Not a good look for his gun toting bad guy. They should have been square, or rectangular – a possible black line across the top only. Their placement was odd too. And then of course the rolled up legs… it looked like Clyde had run into some hard times, sock-less and soiled hems was my first image. A little frowzy. Less updated and hip; closer to homeless with good looks & fantastic hair.
    Korto and Elena’s designs were a good match (not that it mattered – another arbitrary stipulation), intricate and well made. And practically invisible last night. I can’t say I loved the fabric fringe Elena chose for the jacket. I loved the jacket for Korto’s design, the pants didn’t wow me but all the pants last night were at least DECENT. Enough for a very special PR celebration.
    Viktor’s futuristic dandy reminded me of Jude Law’s robot in AI. It would have been able to withstand the fringe if not for the oddly proportioned jacket opening. It was well made, but it was still a bottom look.
    I think Seth and Irina’s designs both impressed me with the spirit of the challenge. They were both strong, dramatic looks. Both a bit costumey. I thought Seth’s was more 40s inspired, but I could see the Bonnie in it. And it was made perfectly; but it’s like something Seth can make in his sleep. Irina’s was also very gun moll in her hat and high fur collared jacket over lux gown. I thought it told a very good story on it’s own.
    Christopher used a red fabric that seemed to come straight out of one of the movie clips. The silhouette also fit the era. I liked it somewhat, the transparent panel took away from the design and the fabric was too see-thru all over. The holster design was good but I just didn’t love it as much as the judges.
    I think I would have to choose between Irina and Seth for the win.

    • Carrps

      Me, too. I really liked Irina’s jacket. Without it her look was less interesting. And it’s so to my taste. Something a bit slouchy, a bit masculine over an exquisitely feminine silhouette. Loved.

      Why the heck was Seth Aaron on the bottom? He was at least a top 3.

      And Bar Whosits was a waste of flesh. Dopey models, no matter how philanthropic, should keep their mouths shut if they’re that much of a dumbbell.

      • guest2visits

        Can’t remember Bar R’s comments… mostly Elie’s, Austin and the others. But they seemed to work together ok. I liked Irina’s jacket over dress look; and it was a huge amount of work in such a short time.
        If Jeffrey’s coat and pants were designed a little differently – I would have been crazy about that tweed coat.

      • CommentsByKatie

        Yeah, I was shocked by how useless her comments were! I think she’s up there with worst guest judges ever. The ones who are out of their depth are usually polite and don’t say much, but she was brassy and confident with her totally innane comments. Ugh.

        • Carrps

          That’s what go me, I think. She was so smug about her inanity.

    • Sarah

      YES. The pocketses. They were bothering me so much. You nailed it – children’s.

      • guest2visits

        The *pocketses* were too off. I don’t even know where they came from. And they were HUGE.

        • Sarah

          He said his coat was inspired by 30’s Asian military uniforms, which was a stretch, inspiration- wise, but whatever. Regardless, I don’t think they would’ve needed such a large pocket, unless they were using them to tote munitions.

    • swanpride

      I agree concerning Alyssa…it is kind of refreshing that after years of hearing the same lines again and again, she is now managing to stir it up a little bit with her dry humour. She is shaping up to be the best hostess allstars ever had.
      With me, it would have been between Irina and Korto. Seth had a good start, but the leather and especially the clock moved the design too much to steampunk and it really didn’t look like a criminal, more like a businesswoman. I am leaning more towards Korto…while it was too bad that she designed it in black, I think she did a good job, and between a designer who has to do woman’s wear and one who did something impressive for men’s wear, I tend to go with the latter because it is the bigger challenge.
      I hated Jeffrey’s one btw. I am okay with the auf they did (that thing was just tacky), but Jeffrey’s looked like the model was trapped in it, and it was oddly proportioned. No socks to what looks like a winter coat didn’t help. I was flummoxed that he wasn’t in the bottom for this one.

      • guest2visits

        Yeah I think new hosts for the show believe they need to portray the stern ring master – a crack the whip type of delivery for the designers (which seems to be the similar thought for most contests). Now she’s having a better time relating the information that needs to go out there while keeping perspective – and bringing her own personality into it. She isn’t someone I would have picked for the job; having no real connection with the industry (I know she has a team-tops for women biz). She’s an actress. That’s pretty much it that I know of. But Alyssa is likable and up to working with possible fashion-elite types. I still think it matters to the designers that they have judges giving intelligent, experienced critiques; but I can see more and more that the real judges may in fact not be sitting in those chairs anyway.
        Both Korto and Elena’s designs were nearly invisible because the cameras merely flashed on them, and because they were all black; stealth-ninja outfits! The work Korto put into the jacket rivaled Seth and Irina’s style of construction; complex, interesting pieces. It could have easily been a woman’s jacket, too. I wasn’t swept away with the style of the guy’s pants and in general the vibe was club wear from the 80s-90s for both; just my view. I actually went back and forth on it because they were made so well and at first I thought they should have been in the top. In all; no one’s work seemed a clear winner to me this time.
        Jeffrey’s design could’ve easily been in the bottom. I know it was the depression and the clothes B&C usually wore were probably far from swank – I get it. But that wasn’t really what they were asked for. A young, modern, updated couple. Not a hobo. Not a period costume either. I think J’s design was close to being a great one; because of his choice of materials, and because he did a perspective no one else decided to follow. But it really failed for me in execution; the coat turned into a tweedy bathrobe with those ridiculous pockets and the rolled pant legs that Elie loved – I thought were awful and made for a strange silhouette; not a very dapper, sophisticated image for date, or work or anything I can think of except standing in the back door of some dark alley. I liked his idea but it didn’t deliver as it should, my opinion.
        And I liked the idea for the challenge – for me, it just seems no one nailed it completely.

          Honestly, I think for the moderator of the show, the ability to moderate is more important than the ability to judge (not that Heidi is particularly good in either, btw).
          Elena’s was totally wrong for the challenge (honestly, pants????), but Korto’s wasn’t. The choice of colour was unfortunate, but I can still see the 30th elements. If you forget Elena’s design, Korto’s worked.
          Either was, to me, Korto and Irina should have been top…not sure about the third one. Like you said, most of them didn’t even came close to nailing the challenge.

            Agree – looking at Korto’s jacket, it could have given Jeffery tough competition if the judges didn’t immediately shelve it into the safe zone. Still surprised he won this one.
            Also agree Alyssa seems to be a good moderator. But then, I liked Carolyn whats-her-name that everyone pretty much hated… so what does that say about my knowledge of what’s good or not!

      I have been griping about the runway camera-work for several seasons now – all arty and jittery, but the garments get short shrift. I want to SEE THE DOGGONE CLOTHES. Weinstein and his team want to see draMAH.

      I would have given the win to Irena and Seth, with Irena taking top place.

    Is anyone else watching Willy Wonka on the family channel? I always mute for “Cheer Up Charlie”

    Zanna Roberts Rassi is totally like the Faux-Tim Gunn…she doesn’t do ANYTHING and she is really on there for a few seconds. Tim at least spends time asking questions and critiquing…she does NOTHING.

    • NMMagpie

      Thank you! As far as a mentor, it’s more like she read it as: mildly intimidating/demeaning commentator.

    • Stubenville

      Agreed; Zanna seems of no use to this group.

      • CommentsByKatie

        The designers seem like they are a bit annoyed by her, too, or like they completely dismiss her opinions. I swear there has been an eyeroll or two.

    • Lisa_Co

      I’ve disliked her in all the recent Road to the Runways in regular PR seasons. IMO, she comes off as fake, too chirpy and superficial.

    • AnneElliot

      Joanna Coles as mentor was one of the best things about PRAS in the past. She actually had good criticism — I particularly remember her calling out designers for clothing which wouldn’t allow for a bra. She was always professional and her comments were great. I miss her this season.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        I miss Joanna Coles, too. Too bad for PRAS that Coles left for Cosmo.

    Best menswear look: Korto; Best womens': Chris.

    Jeffrey’s look……it’s alright.

  • MilaXX

    Oh guys, the Doctor Who Special An Adventure in Time was really good! I actually teared up a bit at the end.

    • formerlyAnon

      Yay!

  • formerlyAnon

    Site redesign? Best sneak some sedatives into our kitten chow, nothing like change to bring on the angst. (I say this as if I were not guilty as hell myself.)

    I expect/hope you’ll share some insider analysis of the Our First Book publicity machine and pole dancing extravaganza, eventually. I LOVE hearing folks’ stories about their work, even work far more pedestrian.

    Also: Austin. (For choice, Book People, but I’ll drive to whatever lousy dive or exalted penthouse suite at which the pole dancing may occur.)

    An Adventure in Time and Space had me sobbing. What a beautiful film and a wonderful tribute to the show. I think William Hartnell would be so proud.

    My whole week has been Who related… and this weekend shall be also. If I read down, well, spoilers, sweetie.

  • Jessica Freeman

    I have Thanksgiving dinner on my mom’s side this weekend since we are such a huge family, everyone is busy ON thanksgiving…Which will mean the rest of my weekend will be spent on the couch a la Lorenzo with my laptop. Not watching Dr. Who.

    • alyce1213

      Are you saying you’re having two Thanksgiving dinners — on Thursday and on the weekend PLUS Dr. Who?

      • Jessica Freeman

        Yes, I have two full thanksgiving dinners on separate days, the Saturday before Thanksgiving and then on Thanksgiving Day. My mom has 13 siblings and so with all the extended families its impossible to get together on Thanksgiving anymore, so my grandmother decided to do it the Saturday before.

        • alyce1213

          Wow. Lovely.

  • Swiftlytiltingplanet

    Marvelous, marvelous Dr Who!

  • Fordzo

    I was doing some Dr. Who googling today, based upon the fact that so many Unborn Fawns love him, and, GUESS WHAT?? Benjamin Cumberbatch wasn’t Dr. Who. I thought he was. I thought that’s why he is so popular. I’m so very confused.

    • http://stargirlgame.net/ olsonam

      He is starring in another BBC series – Sherlock. There’s been two seasons so far and it’s pretty good. After the series had been shown in America but before I had seen it, I would come here and see people fawning over his pictures and I didn’t really understand. But once I saw Sherlock, I understood his charisma.

      • not_Bridget

        The BBC showed a teaser for Sherlock Season 3, just after Saturday’s Who-palooza. Now available worldwide in The Usual Places…

    • ShaoLinKitten

      Benedict. It’s Benedict.

      • Fordzo

        He was never Dr. Who either. :)

        • formerlyAnon

          Heh.

          (never got around to the vaginal rejuvenation discussion, did you? I am disappointed, was wondering how that’d go . . .)

          • Fordzo

            I decided to wait until Annabel was back. That way we can all discuss it together. Probably not this Friday, but the following Friday. Put it on your calendar.

          • formerlyAnon

            Wise call. I am somehow sure Annabel will add zest to the conversation.

  • Dawn Sinclair

    LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, LOVED and LOVED Doctor Who. John Hurt was AWESOME. Here is a link to a 50th prequel for all the fawns: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-U3jrS-uhuo

    Is anyone watching Homeland? If Carrie is 13 weeks pregnant, can that be Brody’s baby?

  • Mojone

    When they have a decade-theme show, wouldn’t it be nice to show us some move-stills, from that era. So we’ll know what they’re looking for. Beats me how the thirties differ from the forties.

  • Fordzo

    Where do I begin? I love it so much, I want to kiss it. I fell OUT at “Let’s win this one for Rue”.
