Welcome to the terrible majesty of the bray and the cray!
Redeye back to Manhattan and Julia sitting B***, can life get any better?
Ouch. Sounds like a thinly veiled "I hate you for messing everything up; now pay for it" remark to me.
What, they're not in first class???
who posted this? was it Meghan? OMG, Meghan looks so unhappy :(
It seems Mary wasn't with them. Dear God, I hope she's escaped. I could come up with a plan in one day to get Mary some serious auditions with reputable companies in New York and L.A. She should get Daddy to hire her an agent and break free of JA pronto.
Poor bunnies. It CAN be really tiring to flutter all over CES taping your sponsor video and lip dub and stuff. It's also really tiring to post some press releases about gadgets and pass them off as your own sincere recommendations, after staying up all night deleting your more embarrassing posts and hoping the sponsors didn't see those. Woopsy! Fortunately they somehow mustered enough energy to blog some shitty conversations (no pun intended) and post pictures with D-list former celebrities. OMG they're so "fun" and "crazy!"
Per Mary's recommendation that we all read Megan Ag's (can we call you Megan Ag?) twitter (because it's SOOOOO hilarious) I noticed two of her twitters from earlier this summer and they are hilarious but probably not in the way that MR envisioned: Searching Gawker 10:14 AM Jun 23rd, 2008 from webReading many, many commencement addresses 8:56 AM Jun 23rd, 2008 from webLooks like the Handmaiden of Shitty Jobs got a promotion from "Gawker Stalker Intern" and "Julia's Ghost Speechwriter" to "Producer" Congratulations! I am sure those huge paychecks will roll in any day now that Mary has taken over your position as the one who checks Gawker every five minutes and proudly posts about it when she gets "coverage."
Julia looks almost human there without 12 layers of warpaint on her face.
Need some harmless entertainment to pass the tedium of the day? It looks like JA had a little freak out over on QOD (one of her usual FUCK OFF posts), some people called her out on it, and now she's (or the poor intern) deleting posts fast and furious over there. Seeing their silly attempts at spin control and squashing feedback is like watching them bail out the Titanic with a Solo cup. They probably have a pitch meeting with a PR rep (to gobble up more free stuff) so they're trying to clean up the site a bit in case someone looks at it. Never does it cross their little minds to just take down the worthless page completely (or do they need those page views more than they are letting on?) Besides the complete crappiness of the product they offer, I think the more interesting story of these three is the complete sloppiness with which they conduct business. They've created an worthless shell of a website simply to have something "Web 2.0" to show off to out-of-touch potential advertisers and sponsors. The entire purpose of their business is to have a vehicle to get every free product, trip, endorsement or ad partnership they can get their greedy hands on ... all without offering an actual quality product in return. People were onto it months ago with the Blueprint debacle and the shit really hit the fan with the CES "coverage." Watching them run their business into the ground faster than Mary can pedal in spin class ... now that is something worth tuning in for.
Preston, did Julia post something at the QOD? What did she say? I see lots of responses over there have been deleted.
Julia had meltdown and ranted that "they don't owe you anything, get a life, etc."It was deleted shortly thereafter. I should have thought to copy-n-paste sooner.
A commenter calling themselves "They Don't Owe You" basically posted a typical "get a life" response telling people to get a life, go volunteer, love it or hate it, these girls are living differently and you have no life, blah, blah, blah. If you have been following Julia's sub par writing for any amount of time there were a number of things in there that gave it away as her. A couple of people called her out on it - and on the sheer idiocy of her tired argument - and they all got deleted, including the original post. The poor intern has really been earning her money today! Oh wait. She doesn't get paid. Looks like all that HARD WORK moderating comments has really taken it out of them. No new posts today at all, bunnies? That's not very lifecasty of you! Maybe you need another vacation to get rid of all that stress.
Now, now, the poor bunnikins are tired from their long red-eye flight and are sleeping in. Compensatory blogging and rationalization to commence shortly, I'm sure. I wasn't persuaded that Julia wrote that "They Don't Owe You" rant. Granted, she's not a great writer, but she's better than that. I think it was one of the more hysterical droid commenters over there. Or perhaps...Julia trying to disguise her digital "voice" a bit in the way perps try to alter their handwriting?
i love how she tells people to volunteer and yet she NEVER does herself. on a side note, her jealousy is getting worse. everything from mary's trip to people that have good relationships (especially on christmas).
I don't think that "they don't owe you" post was Our Lady of Introspection. Didn't seem her style.
