Hi Bunnies!

Oh, sweet bunnies! Sorry we've been MIA, but many thanks to Jacy for keeping you RBNS lovers sated with snark. It's been sort of nice not paying much attention to the Trio of Banality, and we've been busy with life and work. We've actually missed quite a bit of what's been going on over there--and here--so we're not totally up to speed on what's happening in both NS and RBNS world. But there's been some trouble in the comments, we hear? Play nice, bunnies.

Now, here's a little bit of Banality trivia for you: Our Lady of Introspection hasn't used the term "bunny" or "bunnies" since January 8, shortly before our blogging commenced. Before that, she dropped the term on a regular basis. Coincidence? You tell us, bunnies!

  1. Here's what I don't understand: Julia's job is "lifecasting," yet she posts relatively nothing (both in quality AND quantity, cupcakes) compared to a ton of awesome bloggers out there who - gasp! - actually have legitimate employment that goes beyond whining about having to cover fashion week, do another taping, playing dress up, etc etc.

    WTF.

  2. Sigh, now the Julia Allison Official Term of Endearment (TM) is "Cupcakes." Welcome back to the land o' terminal hairbanded Kuteness, NSRB.

  3. Well, that pathetic twitter she wrote to Emily Gould started with "Bunny!" It was something along the lines of "Shouldn't you be busy guarding your man from other females"? (No Julia, we're not all that insecure or controlling, even though we know there are women like you out there who like to roll their titties around on even married men).

    ReplyDelete
  4. For Julia Allison's next in-depth writing assignment for a national publication, I would like her to explore the cultural phenomenon of being a bunny fluffer.

    ReplyDelete
  5. No coincidence AT ALL. I noticed that the other day. Hilarious. We are like puppet-masters! Funny, though, we still haven't managed to convince her to stop being an asshole.

  6. Any word on why the Cosmo piece was killed?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Bunnies bunnies bunnies bunnies bunnies.

    Also, she stole that "cupcakes" line from Gala Darling.

  8. I posted this suggestion in the thread just below, but since it might get lost in the fury:

    My only suggestion/request is that those who wish to post anonymously choose a name and use it consistently.

    It doesn't have to be anything that identifies you, because most of us have privacy concerns and aren't interested in famewhoring, just something that you use each time you post. Otherwise, I can't believe that I'm the only one who gets confused by multiple people posting as Anonymous with various viewpoints.

    Maybe pick a name mocking something about Julia or NS? Again, just a request, not trying to boss around anyone.

  9. Question for everyone:

    I recall reading something in another thread about JA and Co. being on an episode of The City. I thought someone said it was last week's but I didn't see them. Anyone know anything about this?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Anon 3:02,

    Rumour has it that it's a quick appearance, no real depth. I have friends at Viacom that I can ask them to give more info.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Julia's face was on an episode of The City for like, two seconds. I think it was a party scene or something and the camera was panning across the crowd. But she screen capped it an posted it to her blog. I think The City is the show they WISH they got - one that completely fictionalizes some glossy version of New York life. In reality? Girls like Olivia Palermo would probably crush girls like Julia and Mary with their stiletto and not think twice. Perhaps that was their reasoning behind the name "nonsociety" - that they are somehow different than a typical New York society girl? Ironically, they really have demonstrated what low rent, classless social outcasts they are. Nonsociety indeed.

    Christan, Julia's wife fluffer piece probably got killed because it was late, too long, needed too many edits, or just plain crappy writing. Sort of like her other writing. But I am serious - I want an expose on bunny fluffing!

    ReplyDelete
  12. This is Anon 3:02 -- thanks, everybody! I would love to know how/why she got on that, even if it was just a party shot. It seems like the kind of thing JA would be shouting from the rooftops on her "lifecast," along with how she and Olivia/Whitney/whoever are now BFF (bunny fluffers forever).

    ReplyDelete
  13. Good suggestion, [redacted], re: providing a name to go along with posts.

    Christan, Cosmo killed the dumb bunny's fluff piece? Christ, Cosmo invented fluff! What the hell happened? Of course, Jackles will never mention it again. She's like that, you know. Rewriting, omitting the actual details of her fantabulous life on an hourly basis.

  14. I've never understood the "Nonsociety" name.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Here is the link to Julia's brief "appearance" on The City:

    http://julia.nonsociety.com/post/67434267

    That was in December and I really don't think they're going to be on upcoming episodes unless Julia butts, elbows or claws her way into some sort of Fashion Week shooting that the show is doing. (All of the "characters" on The City work in fashion so if they are still shooting, they will probably be at Fashion Week. I know. Shameful. I watch that show. Shut up or I will throw bunnies at you.)

    Also...anon posters, you can choose a name for consistency's sake and you don't have to have a blogger account or even link to a URL. Just choose the name/url option and make up something. I agree with Redacted NonE, it would clear up a lot of confusion.

  16. Mary's new blog title:

    Vodka Fluffer

    ReplyDelete
  17. I actually like the aprons on NS today.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ok, perhaps the consistently using Names/URLs is a good thing. Twitter search on julia allison is always fun:

    alaskamiller: i'm showing random usc girls nonsociety.com and explaining what a julia allison is.

    LouisaB: If you evver feel the slightest bit badly about yourself, just watch Julia Allison (oh sorry, I mean JA) do a LipDub: www.vimeo.com/3125948

    I didn't write that. First, you spelled it wrong. Second, I don't want comments not written by me linking to my blog.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Christan - Hmm, that's not good. How can you stop people using your chosen name/url? Seems a weird thing for someone to do.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh dear. I guess that's the problem with forcing people to make up names...

    ReplyDelete
  22. An article adapted from an old article Julia had in Cosmo:

    http://dating.personals.yahoo.com/singles/datingtips/72462/dating-a-political-hotshot

    ReplyDelete
  23. Fake Christan was probably ThatLoserAllison, who, in her comments to Christan, kept writing "Christian".

    ReplyDelete
  24. Christan, I suspect that the anonymous anti-Jankles crusader is on a mission to ruin commenting for everyone. Just ignore her/him.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm the "anonymous anti-Jankles crusader," and I don't really know why you guys feel the need to attribute every comment you don't like to one person (ScaryMary, Julia, etc.), but the fake Christan wasn't me. Promise.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Nobody is being forced to use a name to post here, but it's pretty low to mimic someone else's name (or Nom De Blog). True, it sounds like something a total loser with a few screws loose would do. Allison is a good candidate, as is the always nutty Kelly Kreth.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Don't you really feel silly identifying yourself as an "anonymous anti-Jankles crusader?"

    ReplyDelete
  28. "anonymous anti-Jankles crusader" might be a good, albeit wordy, name to use here.

    ReplyDelete
  29. that apron will come in handy when shes binging cupcakes.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I wonder if Julia will show up at Fashion week wearing an apron.
    She is definitely reading this site - note her pointed remarks about posting 2 photos showing the left side of her face.
    Hi Julia! I think you owe Mary an apology, bunny!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Well, now we all know how Nonsociety got access to Fashion Week:

    Cityfile: A Less A-Listy Fashion Week Looms

    As an aside, I'd love to see these three dolts locked in a room with Kelly Cutrone.

  32. Must. Watch. Mary's Video.

    http://mary.nonsociety.com/post/77554638/for-last-nights-business-casual-dinner-i-broke

    It was filmed last night. Which , apparently by Mary's calendar, was Monday night.

    Lip still doesn't move but she seems to be making it try to move.

    I don't know why someone would get a hair cut that they couldn't style or maintain.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well, now we all know how Nonsociety got access to Fashion Week:

    They're getting in under Julia's TONY press pass. Mary is probably using her press pass. Or at least will attend as Julia's guest and then get in and out of the tents with that and use her camera phone to liveblog it. Basically, they're kind of sneaking Mary in.

    ReplyDelete
  34. While her other two dear sisters are fighting about tablecloths and aprons just like my grandma used to, our sweet sister Meghan is sad because the recession has finally hit home. Her friend was laid off and that makes her frownyface, but she pats her self on the back for "living small" during these lean times: "it’s now quite natural for me to live small until the economy changes" she says without a hint of irony. Somewhere, a tiny violin is playing a song just for you, dear Sister Meghanaise.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Mary really, really looks like a 40-year old divorcee in the video referenced by Christian/5:30.

  37. Mary in her video: "So tonight I'm off to a business casual dinner... I am not really sure what that means."

    I have no idea why, but Mary saying silly dumbass crap like this sort of makes her endearing. If she'd just learn to do a deep side part and lay off the face freezing fillers, I might actually not want to throw a shoe at her.

    ReplyDelete
  38. As someone who is no genius with hair appliances, I actually feel sorry for her inability to do her hair. She suffered from this when it was long, too. That's why the longer bob was so good for her -- it's kind of hard to fuck that cut up.

    But Mares! If you're listening? Here's what I finally did when it took me a few weeks to figure out a short haircut a couple of years ago: Part it on the side when wet. Put some product through it. Blow-dry it upside down. Stand up, run your fingers through it so that it falls forward a bit, not back, and frames your face. DO NOT PART IN THE MIDDLE AND PLASTER BACK ANYMORE.

    You are a pretty girl. You want your hair to accentuate your features, not pull the eye away from them. You'll also look a lot younger.

    Now if you could just work on releasing yourself from JA's shackles, you'll be all set!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ha ha, Jacy. You've inspired yet another name for Mary's blog rename:

    Free From Jackles' Shackles

    ReplyDelete
  40. The odd thing to me is that Mary actually got a semi-edgy haircut, then goes out of her way to smooth it out, tamp it down and make it look as suburban as possible. Why? Whywhywhywhywhy?

    I suspect hairstylist Ty is asking himself that very question.

    ReplyDelete
  41. oh oh JA did not speak to moms for a whole month:

    or even family (my mother and I didn’t speak for the entire month of January

    ReplyDelete
  42. I posted my reasoning for liking Jackles in the other thread, which hopefully can be put to rest. Am reposting it here:

    I prefer Jackles as JAB's nick name because it includes JA: and remnants of the word "cackle" but then also conjures a jackal, the wild, predatory flesh tearing dog.

    This name conflates JAB with witches and dogs (no offense to witches and dogs) which seems to fit her current meanie-pants persona.

    Plus how she doesn't seem to care if she steals someone's husband.

    Heheh.

    And i am a feminist. Which is why i have a problem with Jackles and her ilk in the first place. Voila!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Yet another round of disingenuous hogwash from poofy deluded one. JA's mother sent her an email in January that she posted on NS regarding the TO dating column "hack job." Please, I think the restalyne injections that she "doesn't" get should be swapped out for truth serum.

  44. Jankles II: The RevengeFebruary 11, 2009 at 6:23 PM

    @Jankles: Yeah, I noticed that. It doesn't make her mom sound very mature either, but seriously, wouldn't you start to notice you had a problem if your own parent stopped speaking to you?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oops. That last feminist part wasn't supposed to be in this thread, since it seems we are letting that ish drop for now. Phew.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Then again "JAB" also adequately describes the Pink Lady.

    Seriously. This blog keeps me laughing all day. Don't go changing RBNS.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Julia is a nut job and ripped off Mary e card post without credit, that is all:

    http://julia.nonsociety.com/post/77574664

    ReplyDelete
  48. Was "nut job" too harsh? JA is planning to have two massive bday parties for herself in this economic climate - and I don't know that asking guests for donations to charity makes it ok...

    ReplyDelete
  49. please let's not adopt JAB. it's my bf's initials and i cringe every time i see it used in reference to jackles/jankles/ms. bojankles (HAHAHHA, im totally adopting my last one as my user name here)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have no words. Julia is ALL over the place. I really wish she would stop referring to herself in the third person (with a nickname that she created for herself -- note: nicknaming yourself is the reddest flag of red flags that you need to get a life, especially when no one else refers to you by said nickname except for...yourself...)

    For the sake of salvaging the last teensy-eensy thread of her own sanity, I hope she gets off her lazy one and gets a real job. "Lifecasting" is making her crazy, and I don't understand how she still believes (or ever believed) that it is a novel idea that she created. In her defense, though, anyone spending that much unstructured time thinking about themselves, analyzing themselves, writing about themselves and taking pictures of themselves literally ALL day and night without a siiiingle other hobby (and no friends) is bound to go crazy. I meann it just isn't healthy or normal. You need time outside of yourself or you're GOING to become desperate and delusional.

    But I do love when she ponders life, so proud to enlighten us about all the profound things she's "learned along the way," truly oblivious to the fact that everyone else figged that one out a while ago, thanks.

    Yikes.

    ReplyDelete
  51. its ba denough that I have a birthday in the same month as that nut JA..

    ReplyDelete
  52. I can't think of anything more depressing than planning your own birthday party. Worse is that I cringe just imaging the guest list of people who show up out of courtesy or because Julia harassed them to get their face on Gawker then leave .

    As for Julia's latest "I am SO Happy , you guys" post....with the exception of her multiple crushes/dates, her life kind of sucks. But as someone who has been there, what is fueling her to work out and be SO HAPPY is the attention from men. Her moods and emotions are ruled by whether or not she has a man in her life. And if none of those 12 have bothered to ask her out for a 2nd or 3rd date in the three+ weeks since she went on those dates, that should tell her how interested they are. Finally, the man that was Facebook friending her after blowing her off for HYE? Yeah, maybe don't be so proud of the fact that you even still talk to him after he did that, Julia. Anybody can be strung along by an asshole. Doesn't make you special.

    ReplyDelete
  53. BTW, for the real definition of lifecasting and the pioneer..not JA!..

    Got to

    http://www.calcanis.com

    And read the essay from about a week ago or two weeks..the pioneer of lifecasting won the top SUndance award..surprising that JA did not mention it, right?!

    ReplyDelete
  54. JAB JAB JAB JAB JAB!!!!!! Hahahahaha, erg!

    ReplyDelete
  55. anonymous, if i knew you, i'd start a lifecast then post about how you picked out ugly clothes for me to wear and how i dont really like your new haircut. then you would cry on twitter and id feel smug and then id have a really lonely evening with myself, malcolm gladwell, and a slab of dead fish while you went out and had fun with real friends......oh wait a minute..........

    ReplyDelete
  56. I hope the real friends advised her well, and told her not to tolerate the JA abuse anymore.
