Julia: The Long Island University Branding


80 comments:

  1. Seriously...is she 17 years old? "Omg I got a tatoo I'm so edge", suicide threats, attention whoring, outrageous costumes. I don't know about anyone else, but I outgrew that kind of idiocy when I was in 11th grade.

    Except for the attention whoring, I mean.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Judging by her complete overreaction, JA must be the first person ever to go through this experience.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Julia INVENTED tatoos. You don't even know.

    ReplyDelete
  4. In the same outfit she wore to the Rangers game, she really has run out of options both social and sartorial.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Look at her making a huge deal freaking out beforehand for attention.

  6. "I've had my belly button pierced once. That's about all I've done to my body."

  7. Anon 3:57, you left out the other things she's done to her body; eating disorders, liquid cleanses, colonics, schnapps binging, hair extensions, laser hair removal...

    ReplyDelete
  8. Oh, and look, a sex reference to her lady bits just to keep the camera dude's attention. "Look, when you've had laser hair removal in certain areas... wink wink." Come ON.

    ReplyDelete
  9. 3:57, nose jobs, botox and other cosmetic injections don't count, because... well, they just don't. so, technically, julia isn't blatantly lying. end of story.

    ReplyDelete
  10. She is acting like she is about to give birth at the beginning of this video. My God.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Anon 4:01, maybe in Julia's world that doesn't count. But in Julia's world, unicorns help her dress in the morning while bluejays curl her eyelashes, chipmunks strew rosepetals in her path, and she is a NICE PERSON.

    ReplyDelete
  12. She looks SO PROUD of herself as she says, " . . . and I have done a lot of ballsy things in my life." What you mean like betraying people's confidences and crashing red carpets, Julia? It's not like this woman has ever done anything legitimately adventurous.

    ReplyDelete
  13. omg. She is so "that girl" at the tattoo place. U know they were all like *eye roll* when she left. Hey Jules, 1) you're not the first girl to act all stupidly freaked out in a tattoo place, and 2)people spend hours upon hours getting their rib cages and shit tattooed. Considering that this video was less than 5 minutes...stfu!

    ReplyDelete
  14. even her pain threshold is better than most people's... narcissism at it's finest - finer than most people's...

    ReplyDelete
  15. partypants,
    i dont mean to nitpick, but i believe the bluejays have to attach the eyelashes first and then they curl them. also, i hear the hair-extension-and-bangs fairy does her hair and the magical white veneer bunny is responsible for her gorgeous smile...

    ReplyDelete
  16. ok, how many times is she going to wear that EXACT SAME OUTFIT!? i wouldn't care if she hadn't made such a big deal about being a "media personality" and her inability to wear the same outfit more than once.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I recognize that cameraman's voice...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Anon 4:14 - please forgive me, and thank you for the correction. I made a hasty remark unsupported by the proper research, and you are right to call me out on my inconsistencies. I will totally try to do better in the future because I really value your feedback.

    That said, PLEASE LOVE ME. Oh, you hate me? WELL I DON'T CARE IF YOU LOVE ME.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hey! Extensions aren't bad - if they're not cheap and if they're well maintained.

    I wear some from time to time (until my hair grows enough to get rid of them or I decide to go shorter) and nobody knows. In fact, except for one person in my immediate family and an ex, nobody in my life knows.

    Then again, I'm also more than a decade older than Jill from LIU, and I've never had work done on my face, never had anything injected into it, but I do exercise on a regular basis and while I don't eat a perfectly healthy diet, I don't binge and then juice.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Good Lord...it's a tiny little cheesy inner-wrist stamp, not a detailed snake sleeve over your arm, woman. Quit your whining and overreacting!
    And how annoyed must the tattoo artist be by her? I hope he got a fat tip just for having to listen to her sit there droning on and on all about herself and how "ballsy" she is??

    GET.OVER.YOURSELF.JULIA.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Anyone else recognize the voice of the guy holding the camera?

    Oh yeah, it's Kevin Rose!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Anon 4:25 -- I think the tattoo artist gave Julia her payback for being an obnoxious dipwad by giving her an illegible and generally fug tattoo. He totally gets the last laugh.

    Filming yourself droning on about how you're such a badass (who wears plaid skirts) WHILE the tattoo artist is trying to work??? Beyond obnoxious. That totally explains why her tattoo is so horrible.

    ReplyDelete
  23. No wait, Anon4:30, it's actually Chad Hurley! Don't tell his wifey!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. When I see the letters LIU I think "live it up" - I don't know why, I think it comes from years of trying to work out banal personalized license plates.

    If "Let It Unfold" meant so much to her, why not get the whole phrase spelled out on her inner wrist, it would probably only have taken another 10 minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't get why she didn't simply spell out the whole phrase instead of abbreviating it either, Johnny Optional. Maybe she thought she was being all secretive and personal with it that way, thus forcing people to ask her about it, but it would've looked so much better and made far more sense if she simply got a smaller font with the entire phrase on her wrist.

    ReplyDelete
  26. No, it really is Kevin. I worked with him several years ago. He's a really good guy - for the life of me I can't understand why he associates with the likes of Baugher.

    ReplyDelete
  27. When I see LIU, I think about that beautiful classic KISS song, "Lick It Up." Screw granny's cliched saying; Julia's totally a closet KISS fan.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Re: "Lick It Up" ... Or maybe Julia is a Heathers fan. That would explain a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Okay, maybe I am a dope, or missed it somehow -- but what does LIU stand for in Julia World?

    ReplyDelete
  30. What the hell was Kevin Rose doing hanging out with her after all of his fretting that he didn't want anything to do with her? The only good thing about this I can see is he's too ashamed to admit to hanging out with JA.

    LIU stands for "let it unfold" - some advice her grandma gave her. It seemed to resonate with her so much that she felt the need to tattoo it on her body, yet ironically she pretty much does THE EXACT OPPOSITE of said advice on a daily basis.

    - Is flying off the handle at a comment your supposed bestie said about your hometown LETTING IT UNFOLD?
    - Is videotaping yourself in the middle of the night having your own personal meltdown party LETTING IT UNFOLD?
    - Is wearing an incredibly contrived outfit to a hockey game to make some sort of asinine statement LETTING IT UNFOLD?
    - Is stalking celebrities at a level of creepiness usually reserved for sociopaths LETTING IT UNFOLD?
    - Is making up lame reader emails to yourself at 4 a.m. to drum up some sympathy for your generally shitty and selfish personality LETTING IT UNFOLD?

    God I'm so bored at work I googled Julia to see what I could find.

    1) lol @ Milo. Doubt that happened otherwise we would have heard about it from her 23931290 times by now.
    2) lol @ her listed build

    ReplyDelete
  35. She couldn't haved spelled it out guys. Then people would never ASK her what it stood for/meant when she incessantly showed it off or "casually" let is become visible to anyone around, duh!

    ReplyDelete
  36. INTERNET BRATZ DOLLMarch 26, 2009 at 4:58 PM

    How in the hell is anyone supposed to ask her what the letters mean when you can't even decipher that they are actually letters and not just a bunch of calligraphy swirls? It's totally unreadable. That sneaky tattoo artist knew exactly what he was doing!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh yeah, they "dated".. mediabistro article says she met him in Miami, then:
    "
    Allison picks the thread back up after a few minutes of concentration. "Ok, then a couple days I later, I flew out to spend some time with Milo, and that was fun, but two days later after I leave I see him on television canoodling with Emmy Rossum. I was like, 'whatever.'"

    For a moment, she looks sad, and hugs herself, but it quickly passes. "

    ReplyDelete
  38. Who's Dated Who puts her birthdate in 1982, which would mean she just turned 27. We know that's not true. Was she trying to lie about her age at one point or what?

  39. To Julia Allison:
    re: TMI

    Julia! Saw you were looking for some feedback on your yay!internet web show TMI Weekly. Because you're looking to kick it up a notch! Fanatstic!

    First of all, I love the show! Just as it is! But if I was somehow going to make it even more unbeleivably better than best, here's what I would do:

    I'm not crazy about the intro mucis. Ok. No big deal. It just reminds me a tiny little bit of that old HBO Show - Sex in the City? You know it (so good!)? I mean, not a ton of shows have xylophone solos in their intro music, so I guess that's just what happens. I know it wasn't inetntional on your part! Yay!

    Second, I'm not all the way in love with the subject matter you guys talk about. It's a little TeenVogue, no? Or is it me? It's probably me! No, it's not. If you had, like, much better subjects, like, not just the first thing that pops into your pretty little pink head, maybe it would be even crazier greater!

    And third, I guess, the show you guys do, TMI Weekly, might be better if like, three other women, not you guys, were doing it. Not to get too technical, but you guys aren't very smart or good at journalism or interviewing or research or public speaking. Which is totally fine! You're soooo good at other stuff, that that doesn't even matter! I mean, who gives a care?

    So that's my two-cents. For what it's worth!!! You help make me beleive in my dreams! And I hope all your dreams come true, too! Keep doing what you're doing (except TMI!)!!

    xo
    flatface
    ps
    Oh! Almost forgot! I'm also not head-over-heels about the name "TMI". I mean, huh? So, just to recap: different theme music, different topics, different hosts and if you could change the name, that would be terrific!!

  40. Why must she record every single waking moment of her boring life?

    Ha, flatface.

    I have a strange feeling that if you emailed that, as is, she would find a compliment in it...

    ReplyDelete
  42. @anon 5:00 JA/NS fanfic? really? REALLY?

    not really. please.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I personally thought it was hilarious in its outright mockery.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Flatface, that is a classic. I am still recovering from the "xylophone solo" lie.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Writing long "fanfic" about a person's death is kind of creepy, I don't care who it is.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Anon 5pm, brava. Made me laugh out loud. Julia will love it when she reads it, it's about her after all.

  47. Nussbaum blerghs about Julia presenting to his Parsons class, an extract:
    "She turned to social media to boost her recognition in order to get editors to read her writing. Julia is—get this—SMART."

    ReplyDelete
  48. Well yeah, I wouldn't do it, but still found this bit funny.



    Guy in hipster glasses: My God, I thought she died by hanging. I can understand the genuine freshwater pearl necklace they used to camouflage the neck injuries, but how is it that her face was disfigured so grotesquely that they had to virtually recreate a new face out of putty and industrial-grade stage makeup to cover the damage?

    Gal in pink raincoat: What are you talking about? She looks exactly as she looked in life. Except that her mouth is closed.

    ReplyDelete
  49. you do realize the suicide fanfic makes you look crazier than julia, right? and i say this as someone who really fucking hates julia.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Just left the following comment on Nussbaum's blog ... wonder if the criticism will actually get published?

    "She turned to social media to boost her recognition in order to get editors to read her writing."

    Does Julia still write? I haven't seen anything from her for a while. I'd be interested to know if editors are reading her work and if so, who.

    You don't need a social media profile to get published or noticed. You need talent and a work ethic, those two factors will get you very, very far.

    Did Julia teach that?

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm so disturbed by the fanfic actually that I realllllllly hope Julia DOESN'T read this specific thread bc it would scare the SH*T out of me, if I were her.

    NO FUTURE CHAPTERS NEEDED. Go back to your dungeon. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Julia Allison Baugher is fucking batshit insane psycho! That is ALL I derive from her hyper-ventilating, babbling, unraveling before our eyes.

    We are just moments away from the Britney with the shears people! Only moments!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Julia's next 3am fireside chat will feature her sitting, naked, in a pile of cupcake frosting, tossing cupcakes and free conference swag in the air. Lilly looks on, puzzled, and barks until Julia's neighbor Rosie O'Donnell comes to pick Julia's naked, frosting covered, bum of the floor.

    *Yes, in fact, Rosie O's pied a terre is across the hall from Julia Allison's apartment.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Something that I thought of when I recognized it was Kevin Rose...

    We are all aware of her fascination/obsession of him and his dislike (i'm lacking a better word) of her...kind of like all her relationships, no? So wasn't he in NYC recently on Jimmy Fallon (around the same time she got the tattoo)? And, she never mentioned that they had hung out let alone filmed videos together leaving readers to believe he snubbed her...

    Has Julia BAUGHER finally learned how to keep some of her private life PRIVATE? I'm really shocked by this...any thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
  55. I don't think that was Kevin Rose. There was a picture on her blog of a guy with his shoes off that was at the tattoo parlor with her that night

    ReplyDelete
  56. That was Gary Vaynerchuk and he wasn't with her, he said she walked in with a tattoo.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Kevin Rose doesn't dislike her at all. Everyone who is friends with him knows that they've dated on and off, they just keep it really DL. She actually keeps most of her relationships DL since the Jakob debacle.

    In fact, I heard from a friend who hung out with both of them recently that SHE asked him not to say anything publicly about them.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I emailed Julia Allison. This is her response. Read it as you will:
    I'm sorry, that's private.

    I'm sure you understand.

  59. Also, JA kept her relationship with Ben Leventhal quiet the entire time they dated last year (for like 5-6 months). Only their friends knew they were seeing each other.

    I know both of them, and they're good friends now.

    The girl isn't stupid.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Well, yes she is.

    ReplyDelete
  61. She's way more crazy than stupid. She's no intellectual. And she's not even what one would call, "book smart." She of average functional intelligence with a whole lot of crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Crazy people who are smart are a whole lot better at hiding how crazy they are. Trust.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Her kind of crazy, of the personality type of variety, seeks to be VIEWED. Her kind of crazy is a performance.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I also think that Jackles is CRAZY and DUMB -- so it isn't just TJ who is of this opinion.

    I also believe smarter people are better at covering. Would a bright person post these ridik crazy vids every night??

    I really don't think so. Jackles is all over the map and disorganized and it doesn't come across as intelligent on any level.

  67. TJ took the "not dumb" position, if you read what she said.

    ReplyDelete
  68. My position: Not DUMB, not smart, average with a whole lot of crazy and that kind of crazy that loves a camera. That's all.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I'll add abject, desperate and shameless to dumb and crazy to round out the adjectives that describe Julia Allison Baugher's public ramblings to date.

  71. Turning point FAIL.

    I'm actually surprised.. this could've gone either way; tough/unfazed (as seen above) or hamming it up even if it didn't hurt. For SOME reason, I think the former was her option specifically because of the cameraman.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I gotta say:
    I'm about say what you want. Free internet. All that.

    The whole suicide fantasy post? Uncool.

    The writer is good. That's clear.

    Do something less creepy...

    ReplyDelete
  73. Agreed. Should have been deleted hours ago. Totally inappropriate.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I'm not just saying this because I can't fucking stand this girl. That is without a doubt the lamest fucking tattoo I have ever, ever seen.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Just watched the tattoo video - Jesus H.
    Porno schoolgirl outfit. Sexual innuendos at the camera man, endless stream of consciousness yammering about how outrageous getting a tattoo is.
    Has the girl never heard of a thing called "silence"???
    There was a definite sexual vibe going on in this video so the fan boys will be sure to like it.
    Why doesn't Toolia just reposition herself as some kind of slutty web celeb and give up this pretense of being a writer?

    ReplyDelete
  76. Jesus, i just watched that BS through. It's Kevin Rose, he sounds annoyed and bored, like he just wants to fuck her and get lost. She is a dumb c*nt. Srsly. That poor worker fellow giving her the tat. He must have just wanted it to be over. And Kevin Rose can't like her that much if he did not bother to tell her that was a BAD tat.

    And yeah, Jackles, we KNOW you have had a LOT more work done to your body than that. And so does Kevin Rose.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Ugh, cussing, talking about her lady bits, freaking out... total ploy to flirt with Kevin Rose. Incredibly annoying and obvious to any woman.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I am the person who wrote the "suicide" post, which actually was not a suicide post. The continuation of the story has the narrator discovering that the death is neither accident, suicide nor murder; is an elaborate hoax engineered by the Nadia character and her various powerful (old and new) media connections for the purpose of stirring up controversy, increasing traffic and disseminating her brand. An elaborate hoax, much like her life. And much like the life, at least as she puts it out there, of a existing person, I often suspect. In addition, the narrator is seriously exploring the notion of responsibility and guilt in relation to the influence of internet content on real life, and vice versa.

    I do not hate Julia; I merely find her ridiculous, and I have enjoyed coming here to read the clever ridicule she inspires. But I have noticed, as the story reflected, that there are plenty of people here who truly do hate her and pull no punches in stating this, or even addressing her directly to tell her they hate her, that she is a bitch, a cunt, a whore, etc. I find it amazing that someone (7:17) can say, "you do realize the suicide fanfic makes you look crazier than julia, right? and i say this as someone who really fucking hates julia," as if that stance represents some kind of moral superiority. Well, nothing like a lowbrow on a high horse to put things into proper perspective.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Bravo 12:14. I'm not really surprised as I didn't read into it that way. I just couldn't jump to the conclusion that ANYONE would dislike her to THAT degree, (seriously) writing something depicting her suicide. It had to be more than that and if one had actually read it, it was pretty clear. IDK, maybe I'm different. She's an idiot and a user, but I don't think anyone, anonymous or otherwise, would be gunning for her death or even truly imagining it.
