Julia: Pleading For Ideas Again

She Tweeted and blogged this:

juliaallison: What does "Quality of Life" mean to you?


I'm going to go with living a life of dignity without feeling a need to share my every move and thought (or lack of thought) with thousands of strangers along with endless kissy-face Blue Steel titty shots and the occasional glimpses of true petty, stalker-y nastiness and a willingness to sell out friends, even those sick with cancer, in order to justify being lazy, thoughtless and rude, oh, and also, to know when the time has long past that I can get away with pleated tennis skirts and Barbie frocks and headbands and pretty pink princess palaces and other trappings that have a very limited "cute" shelf life that expires at about the age of 17. Oh yes -- and having a fucking clue about at least one thing in life and not pretending that I am far smarter and more connected and more fabulous than I really am. And oh yeah -- to stop stalking Ashton Kutcher.

  2. The whole post reads: "I’m doing an interview for a documentary tomorrow on this subject, and I’m curious to hear your perspective. Email me - Julia@NonSociety.com (Interview’s not until 6 pm, so you can email me all day. I’ll post some of the most thought-provoking responses!)"

    Jesus, can this girl not form a single original thought or opinion on her own? Is she really THAT lazy? Resorting to begging for material for her OWN interviews? Perhaps she needs to change her twitter bio to "just a dumb, unoriginal, lazy dork with no career."

  3. Coming to terms with the fact that you are not the center of the universe. Most of us make this realization at around age two.

  4. oh come on? Seriously? I see this question is in regards to an upcoming interview.

    Jill ONLY asks her "audience" for feedback when she has an assignment. She's one of those "kids" whose parents edited all her school essays, college papers, and college column (mummy speech writer edited, er, wrote them by Jill's own admission). We all know this girl or guy. They end up excelling despite their lack of talent because they've had a ghost writer along the way. Finally, they become adults, in this case an adult by # only, and cannot function.

    What's amazing is that she's not embarrassed about this behavior. Jill is happy to list items she wants people to buy for her or designers to lend to her, albeit sometimes in code by simply blogging a photo of what she wants with the word "Want" or "Love" under the photo. The audience is on to this game, however. We know she's just begging. It was clear in her recent plight to, yet again, get a free air book. Finally, she has the nerve to call herself both a journalist and columnist (but seems to know she's not if you listed to her during the Heather Gold SXSW panel 08') while also ASKING her readers to send her story ideas, questions for interviews, and definitions of basic terms like "Quality of life" which you'd think she would have learned at Georgetown if she'd actually had gone to class.

    She even asks for personal story related to her TONY column each month. Then, if you read her column, you'll notice that it's almost all about the experience of other people. So, you have to wonder if most of what she produces is really her own product?

    Bottom line: She's a fucking phony. And the fact that she is posting a quote about authenticity is fucking rich. What's made Jill famous? Being inauthentic. Playing personality charades. Lying. Cheating. Freebies. Kick backs. And maybe even screwing.

  11. Why is the dog shitting all over the apartment? I can leave my dog home for 5 or 6 hours without an incident. Poor Georgiegirl:

    Today is not a particularly good day. I’m having yet another major-stress issue at work and I have a dog that keeps shitting all over my apartment (and the dog in question is not called Winston).

    I changed out of my heels into flats to race home at lunch to look for some elusive paperwork I desperately need (oh, and clean up dog shit). I didn’t find it (the paperwork, not the dog shit) which adds to my worry. I just got back to my desk. I looked down at my feet and thought - fuck it, I ‘m keeping my flats on. Told you it was a bad day.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Georgina (the shat upon dog sitter, in more ways than one) follows up that post with these:

    At work I instigate the Ten Minute Rule. When something or someone annoys me (usually an email) I make myself wait at least ten minutes before responding. It usually results in a calmer response (as opposed to a ‘what the fuck is wrong with you!!!’ email).
    I need to maybe instigate the same rule with blogging.

    The cleaner is coming tomorrow. I feel like I should maybe give her a raise. I’m pretty sure my apartment has never been so filthy.


    Looks like someone is tired of being used and abused by Our Lady of Bad Pet Ownership.

    ReplyDelete
  13. The dog is crapping all over the apartment because it's not housetrained. Do you think Julia Allison - queen of no self discipline in her own life - could ever have the self discipline to successfully housetrain a pet? She can hardly control her own base impulses... what makes you think she could teach an animal to control theirs?

    It's been discussed before, but Julia does not deserve that poor dog. She obviously travels a lot and dumps it off on a dog sitter. The dog is probably pooping everywhere because her life is constantly being disrupted because of it's owner's unstable schedule. It's really quite abusive to the pet to subject it to such an unstable home life.

    There is a new TMI up where each of the girls had thier makeup done. It's okay IMO (maybe bc I actually love makeup). Although, as with all TMI's, I think they need to be a bit longer to be more interesting. I feel like TMI is like cliffnotes of a show that had actual content. I don't find the girls as revulting (sp?) as most on here do, although they don't seem to be as cutting edge or revolutionary as they think they are. So, meh.

  16. According to the dog sitter's blog, she is currently taking care of Lily while JA is at sxsw. The dogsitter just got a new puppy (winston)who she points out is not the dog that is shitting all over the apt.

  18. We know it's Julia's dog because Georgie says " I have a dog that keeps shitting all over my apartment (and the dog in question is not called Winston)."

    We know Georgie is dog sitting Lilly and Winston is her dog. It's not Mason because Mary has posted photos of him with her in Houston. Process of elimination (no pun intended) Plus, it's been well documented what a horrible pet owner Julia is (having a dog in her college dorm, her mother taking Lilly from her at one point, colleagues saying that Julia's dog has pooped in their office or studio, etc. etc.)

    ReplyDelete
  19. So Mary is out and Meghan is hanging on by a thread because she is seriously uncomfortable with "putting it all out there." I think we can say that Nonsociety has failed and Julia Allison is once again without career options... except for that obscure TV deal that she's SO SO SO SO EXCITED ABOUT!!!!!

    Um yah... good luck selling NS in 3-5 years to make "fuck you" money, Julia Baugher.

  21. She's hopeless. Shameless. Completely beyond help. I was secretly rooting that she would have one of those moments like Demi Moore in St. Elmo's Fire-- rocking back and forth in an empty apartment, forced to take stock on where her life came off the rails, and eventually get back on the road to recovery. But she will never grasp that amount of clarity.

    At SXSW Julia is hanging out with 3 Kevin Rose exes:

    *Sarah Lane
    *Shira Lazar
    *Melody Mccluskey

    That's weird by anyone's standards surely...

    ReplyDelete
  32. And all Julia can talk about is how she doesn't have a man. That's all she talks about! GOD SHUT UP.

    ReplyDelete
  33. What makes this loonytunes think that hanging out with a guy's EXES will somehow bring him to her? If anything, it would make most men flee.

    If Jill from LIU had half a brain, she'd be hanging out with his friends and colleagues, not his exes.

    Ten shades of weird and ick.

    ReplyDelete
  34. She has no other "friends"...and she certainly cannot be seen alone. Insecurity drips down her face like invisible mascara.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh geez, the tech cab. She's so awkward and bad on camera. She keeps fidgeting. OH SHIT. "It's a HUGE misconception" that she puts a lot of her personal life online. Then she goes on to talk about jakobandjulia.com (Jakob's idea, of course!).

    ReplyDelete
  36. Gawker JUST posted that Julia drunkenly admitted that Mary is quitting... go read!

    ReplyDelete
  37. JOP - weird, creepy and stalkerish in anyone's world but Julia's. She often loses touch with reality whenever stalking an ex or current crush. It's widely known that one of her exes even has a restraining order against her. But pay no attention to that dark, sick and twisted side of her. Why, she's so NICE. And healthy! And free of mental issues! Our angel Julia doesn't even like to cloud her precious, unspoiled mental state with a drink, pill or a single milligram of caffeine! Because she's PERFECT, dontcha know?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hm. Maybe she wants to play up the rumors they were involved by hanging with all his exes. Then she gets the reflected glory without the icky icky sex.

  42. Oh, you guys, this explains everything: Julia was JUST JOKING (according to her nonterview on TechCab). She "jokes around a lot" and is "silly," and THAT is why everyone think she's a whorey, anti-feminist, self-promoting bitch.

  49. Why would she stay with TMI if she's quitting NonSociety? Oh, what's that? She's not? Thanks, Julia.

  51. WTF does Mary's latest statement mean:

    "Running errands with Mom on this beautiful, warm (yay) day. Encore is closed on Monday, so we’re just getting all of our to-do’s done together. So much more fun with a friend than darting all over town by yourself. Mom’s inside, I’m answering emails in the car, with not a care in the world (despite what you may have read). Off to go grab Mase and let him chase me around the yard."

    That she doesn't care and isn't upset about leaving or whatever caused or to leave? Or that she really isn't leaving? She def leaving but she needs to learn to be more clear with her writing. Although, it's JA's M.O. to be purposefully unclear in order to keep everyone talking and maybe MR learned a bad habit?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Guessing Mary has a contract with TMI/NNN/NBC, which they may not have drawn up for NS.

  53. If you really want to subject yourself to the torture that is the TechCab videos, click on the on demand link at the bottom of the screen and then click on the Sunday night link. A few things:

    -- the one with Julia alone is classic Julia. Talking a bunch of bullshit while thinking she's sounding intelligent. Tell us again about shifting paradigms, bullshitter. Wanting to build women up and thinking she's so harmless...all while wearing a pink miniskirt and black thigh highs, and managing to flash the camera a couple of times. The part at the end where she repins her bobby pins is priceless!

    -- the one with the group - Why does Shira have that confusing 80s hair? She looks like she's playing Heidi Fleiss in a Lifetime movie.

  60. For those looking for the Tech Cab videos, if you go to the "Menu" in the bottom-right hand corner, then you can find her videos under the Sunday night "rolling videos".

    Just watched the Tech Cab video with Julia "confessing her heavy heart".

    I swear to God, if I hear Julia speak one more time about how it's sad that women can't support other women instead of attacking her I will scream.

    When is Julia going to understand that it's actually possible that some people, hard as it may be to believe, just don't like her. As an individual person, based on her actions towards other people and the stuff that she puts out there. That other women are intelligent enough to decide for themselves whether they like somebody else and that there isn't actually a secret code that says all women should love each other.

    If she took the amount of energy she devotes to trying to understand why women "attack" other women, and put to, you know, actually researching herself for interviews, or coming up with content for her shows, we'd all be a lot better off.

  62. She is so full of shit. She "occasionally" tweets about a date?? She practically live-tweeted the "awful date, stuck in a bathroom...oh wait, he's really a nice guy, now I feel bad, teehee" b.s. Also? NS was supposed to be about lifecasting, "putting it all out there" so bragging about NOT putting it out there = failing to abide by your own goddamn business model. Ugh.

    re: the "heavy heart" video.... Julia's head is so far up her own ass she can't even differentiate when she's trying being sincere and when she's just spewing tired old bullshitty lies. Her complete dedication to pathological lying and fabricating whatever truth that suits her at the moment is pretty astonishing. It's like she knows that she's making shit up and just goes along with it anyway.

  66. I wish they'd stop with the cryptic but not really comments like "despite what you may have heard." When you "put it all out there" it's pretty simply to put two and two together and figure out what's what. Mary, good for you. Meghan is right behind you. She was just too much of a wimp and caved when JABA begged her to stick it out through SXSW and the NBC announcement. Good luck with that taxi cab thing, Julia. Sounds like it's going to be a winner.

  68. Emotionally Stunted Woman ChildMarch 16, 2009 at 4:54 PM

    Once upon a time, cryptic posts got Julia attention. She ate up the attention and speculation that came her way. It made her seem like a mysterious celebrity. Now? No one really cares enough to stick around to see how it unfolds. She's a bloated has been. Just clearly stating what's going on behind the scenes would be too boring... Julia knows this so she has to cloak everything in false mystery and suspense. Sadly, this maneuver has grown as tired and tedious as the rest of her long-gone career. She's become a caricature and has the waxy clown face to match.

  77. I was going to say the same thing. She can't mention Jakob or any of her exes without namedropping "vimeo" "college humor" and so on. She is all about trying for credibility by (romantic) association.

    She used to say Jakob who founded vimeo now that college humor has a show I think she thought it would be more "impressive" to say that. And it *is* impressive. For Jakob and the others who founded the company. Not for some girl one of them dated once for a few months. Sorry Jules.
