Welcome to the terrible majesty of the bray and the cray!
Her tattoo in the picture looks like a bar stamp from the night before.
I thought her tattoo was on the other wrist? Am I missing something here?
photobooth photos are flipped so everything's in reverse. RBNS should put that in the fucking site header already.
yeah for all of us fucking morons that are so fucking stupid and don't use fucking macs. Sheesh!
IS that a BJ stamp?
sorry to be bitchy, but i feel like i (or someone else) has to answer a photobooth question once in every thread. and i've never used a mac in my life. i suppose i shouldn't blame you for not reading every comment in every thread like me. it must be nice to have a life. is it nice??
did i miss something? when is this from?
I read a lot of the comments and I have never once seen that question.
anon 8:07. Don't ask questions. If you don't know, it's your own fault. Got it?
The ONLY reason Julia got that tattoo was for an excuse to hang out with Kevin Rose. How pathetic.
i love it when the anons get snarky and i can't tell who's who or what's what. i apologize for the bitchy comment!
Are we really sure that's Kevin Rose? He's in SF, no, and this was in NYC? And he apparently avoids her like the plague.I just assumed it was a tattoo shop employee.
That is absolutely Kevin Rose. She got the tattoo when he was in town to film Jimmy Fallon's show.I am POSITIVE.
It's Kevin - 100%.
Wangs, tatoo, tequila shots. All for Kev.
No way it's Rose b/c he was taping Jimmy Fallon when Jackles got this done. At least that is my memory. The crazy town here is that nutty video and just how fucking insane Jackles is. Harsh toke.
Also, if it was Kevin Rose, Ms. Reflected Glory Julia Allison Baugher WOULD BE BRAYING TO THE HILLS PEOPLE!I MEAN, KEVIN ROSE, PEOPLE!!!!!!! KEVIN ROSE!!!!!!!!!!! IS!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE!!!!!!!!!!! VIDEOGRAPHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have you guys ever heard Kevin's voice before?This is UNDENIABLY him. If you don't believe me, go listen to an episode of diggnation or something.This isn't even an issue; the cameraman is Kevin Rose, and Jimmy Fallon tapes in the afternoon/early evening - Julia got her tattoo at night.
I don't think it's Kevin Rose. Look back on her blog and find the posts from when she got the tattoo. There was a second guy there who was sitting on a table not wearing shoes (how hygenic) at the tattoo parlor.
Okay this is frustrating. The cameraman is Kevin Rose...it's not even a discussion.For comparison's sake, here's a clip of diggnation and you can see for yourself.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UePHBBZl5VY
@someproblemsIt is very weird that she managed to avoid mentioning it if it was him. A first, in fact.And can someone be kind enough to point me towards whatever it is people refer to about KR avoiding Julia? Did he say something? Blog something? Curious.
It's K. Rose, I think. The guy in the video refers to his leg tattoos. K Rose has many tattoos and several on his leg. And guy in video has same voice as Rose on diggnation. Fallon is taped around 4pm. I think JA was hanging with him and using discretion. It's hard to believe but it is supported by the facts.

Thank you, TJ!It is Kevin Rose!!! One of my best friends is a total Rose fanboy, so I am quite familiar with his voice.Also, Julia ALWAYS used discretion with Kevin Rose -- someone sent valleywag a picture of them sharing a milkshake, but Julia never, ever wanted to risk losing her chance with him. This is why she "quit the internet" last year.
It's not supported by any facts. There's no point in requiring discretion on JA's part if Rose is going to do voiceover for the video that he knows she'll eventually post. Apparently his voice is recognizeable so why would he ask her to show discretion?Unless......didn't someone post a recent quote from Shira Lazar where she makes some veiled dig (no pun intended) at JA? And didn't Shira used to date Rose? And now this video is posted somewhere?
OMG IT IS KEVIN ROSE AND PLEASE STOP DISSENTING UNTIL YOU ACTUALLY LISTEN TO A CLIP OF KEVIN'S VOICE.It is so painstakingly, glaringly obvious.
She quit the internet last year when Baugher or Gawker reprinted an e-mail she sent to Lodwik telling him he owed her a mac Book Air.
Krose and Ja sitting in a treeFirst comes kissingThan loveThan Lilly in baby carriage
8:40,Didn't mean to come across like I was 100% sure. Would I bet on it being K Rose? Yes. Could I be wrong? Absolutely. Sorry to sound bossy, that "fact" line was kinda sassy for no reason.
Maybe TJ didn't mean to come across like she was 100% sure, but I did!The wizard of Julia's tattooed oz, is Kevin Rose.
I emailed Julia Allison. This is her response. Read it as you will:I'm sorry, that's private.I'm sure you understand.On Mar 26, 2009, at 8:45 PM, Kate Jabs wrote:Hi JuliaDid Kevin Rose go with you to get your tattoo?ThanksKate-----------------------------------julia allisonfounder // email@example.com-----------------------------------
Didn't Loren Feldman stop by here once and reveal that Rose told him that he didn't like Julia and deny some rumor about Rose texting Julia about a Sushi restaurant? I could have sworn he implied Rose wanted nothing to do with Julia.
I haven't heard Kevin Rose's voice before, but I was convinced the videographer, based on his voice, was a flamboyant gay man. Is it just me?
If Kevin hates Julia so much, why did he comment on a facebook picture of her, shira, and melody with something kinda cute/flirty?Def kev in the liu video.
You mean she gave you a vague response that could be interpreted a dozen ways and start tongues wagging? You're right. That's proof.
Did I say it was proof, 9:04?????!!!! I said, "read it as you will."
Her answer gives it away.If it were Rose, she would have denied it.
Do you guys all have lady boners for Kevin Rose? Because I'm just not understanding the doubt.You all gladly participate in bizarre conspiracies, but when something is actually legit, you are dubious?
i know she's absolutely batsh*t crazy, but she's one-night-stand attractive. is it so absurd to assume he might have hooked up with her when he was in nyc and wants her to keep it quiet? she's obviously into him (read: obsessed) and would have been a very enthusiastic participant. and he lives on the other side of the country so he wouldn't have to deal with her day-to-day drama...
9:08, exactly!And she's actually his type (read: vagina-bearing, quasi-slender brunette)Just listen to an episode of diggnation, it's HIM!
Anon 8:30 -- that was in an apartment, not a tattoo parlor, and it was Gary Vaynerchuck. She went to that apartment after she got the tattoo (GV tweeted something about JA coming in w/ a tattoo), which prob supports the KR theory. I would assume he and GV are friends, but I don't know that world at all (thank goodness).As for Julia's response: with anyone else, that might be a confirmation, but we know our JAB loves to stir up speculation. (However, I'm on board with the people who recognize his voice -- good enough for me.)
Anon 9:10 -- Kevin is very good friends with Gary V.
Actually, JA has always been discreet about Kevin. She's never once mentioned him on her blog. They're friends, and have been for a long time.I know Shira and Melody, and they're genuinely friends with JA. I hung out with them at SXSW. I know it's hard for you guys to believe, but that's just the truth.Also, one more thing. I know JA isn't obsessed with Kevin, because when his name is brought up, she won't say anything about him. She also didn't go to his DiggNation at SXSW.You guys can hate on her all you want but you should at least have the facts straight.
This is what I said earlier, Anon 9:37.JA HAS always been discreet about Kevin. But since you're in the know, won't you confirm that the voice on the tattoo video is, in fact, Kevin's? Just to silence the dissenters.
Uh, I think the 'dissenters' have already acquiesced, anony 9:39pm. But since we do have insiders, can we get a firm confirmation?
I love the imperative to "at least [get our] facts straight." Um...how? By getting information from Julia "backdate/delete/never heard of it, hm?" Allison?
haha exactly, anon 9:45!Everyone's a moralist now, didn't you know?!
Honestly, I don't know. I saw JA's tattoo in person at SXSW, but she never mentioned getting it with Kevin.She's way, way more discreet than anyone gives her credit for. Although she really is a big prude, that's not an act. I know at least three guys she's dated for a while and not slept with ...Interestingly, they all say good things about her, though. Except Forman, who she dumped, but he's crazy.
I'll confirm it was him, but posting that confirmation anonymously isn't going to help anything. If you think it's him you'll agree, but if you are convinced it's not him, you'll just question my credibility. It's Kevin Rose. I promise.
Yeah, anony 9:45. There seem to be a lot of experts around who only have praise for Jackles. Personally i am her biggest fan!
Well, she felt like shit about herself at SXSW. Makes sense that she didn't want to go the party. She didn't go to any parties. She was in Zuckerberg's room the night of the party.
Well, just how discreet could she be if she posted this video and everybody figured out rather quickly who was with her?Where was her discretion when she announced Lodwick's issues on Gawker?How about the discretion (albeit a rumor on this one) that she tipped off Gawker about Leventhal?What about all the Rose comments in that Huffpo article from last week? Or the barely bleeped names on TMI? Or her public declaration that she will sleep with HIM!Personally, I wouldn't know Kevin Rose from Kevin Dillon or what he said on her Facebook page or whatever or where she went after the tattoo. But there's a lot of evidence to support the argument that she's not discreet at all.
You forgot about discretion w/r/t her friend's illness.
And her discretion with her Mary feud!
I don't think it's obvious that it's Kevin Rose, and the video has clearly been edited.And the Lodwick thing was over a year ago. The girl barely blogs about her dating life at all - just a few tweets here and there.About Leventhal, you're just an idiot. They'd been dating for five months and all of their friends are friends with the Gawker people. It's amazing they kept it under wraps for so long.I don't think she was making a declaration about Kevin Rose, either. I don't know who she was talking about, but I doubt it was him.Who do you think she was talking about there?
Three months re: Leventhal. She and Forman broke up in July. Leventhal: August, September, by mid-October, Leventhal had dumped her due to her huge yap and her tip to Gawker and her discussing their sleeping arrangements on TMI. If she's told people differently, then it was in her dreams.
About Leventhal, you're just an idiot. They'd been dating for five months and all of their friends are friends with the Gawker people. It's amazing they kept it under wraps for so long.I could be totally wrong but the Leventhal story was reported on Gawker in October. 5 months back from that and she was still with Forman.
And the Lodwick thing was over a year ago. The girl barely blogs about her dating life at all - just a few tweets here and there.I'm going to do something that I hate with a passion. I'm going to guess you're Krystal or Julia.She doesn't blog about her dates?She posted a picture of a guy she met through a matchmaker on her blog after their first date.She tweets endlessly through her dates. She posts IM conversations with them.What's that about facts needing to be straight?
TWITTER: Cuddle date with @MattWhiteMusic tonight. It's rainy & cold in NYC, so he wants to rent a movie. Any good recommendations?about 2 hours ago from web
"Anon" @ 9:47:Interestingly, they all say good things about her, though. Except Forman, who she dumped, but he's crazy.Bet Jakob wasn't one of those guys.How batshit must Forman be if he's the allegedly crazy one?
It's Kevin, you see him in the mirror around the 3:27 mark, not that it isn't glaringly obvious by the voice and what he says. Just wanted to point that out...
These glowing reviews are more lies. Thanks to Not the Eater Guy But Close for putting that timeline in order and discounting this '5 months' BS.As a Gawker reader, i seem to recall that was only 3 months and then the braying machine opened her yap. Now she never shuts up about him on TMI -- where she brays transparently about all her blue-balled suitors.But she is so nice, people! /
WTF is a "cuddle date?" Jesus, that's creepy.
And to whomever said all of her exes say nice things about her? Ha! That is completely untrue. Her New York exes have very little nice to say about her, including Leventhal, who thinks she's out of her mind and fled the crazy.
She's a model of discretion. FOR SURE.
Forman's not crazy. He's definitely eccentric, but he got treated like shit by her, because she's a raging bitch, so he makes that clear.
Also, pretty sure he dumped her. Remember the "founder fetish" talk?
Dude! It's Kevin. Some of you people must still believe O.J. is innocent! I worked with him, I have partied with him and I have watched almost every episode of Diggnation. Still don't believe it, watch the Jimmy Fallon show (on Hulu) the night Kevin and Alex were on (same night she got the tat). He is wearing the same shirt.
I want to write "2 Invisible Dicks" on that photo. In lolcat font.
I'm a little late to the party, but to anon at 8:30: what about not wearing shoes is being unhygenic…? I mean, in comparison to wearing shoes that have stepped in god-knows-what? I never really thought about it, but when I got my tattoo the place was a total shoe-free zone. I'm sure it's common tattoo shop practice.And to anon at 4:05: lol.
I guess I'm out of the loop, because I don't even know who Kevin Rose is, nor do I care - so I don't understand the big slapstorm about whether it's him or not.
She waits to sleep with people... but she sleeps with multiple people at a time.
It's easy.. Kevin Rose is a tech dude with lots of money and that's basically all you need to know to understand Julia's obsession. The slapstorm is due to the fact that he's videographer, and she frequently pals around with nearly all his exes and announces it on twitter. People are probably surprised it's him because her behavior in general would be enough to send people running for the hills and the things she's done in reference TO him should be more than enough for HIM to be running. But at the end of the day I think KR is way too nice to blow her off the way any of her more public exes have (not saying they're dating) and just as someone said before, she's keeping up an act to catch him. I think we all know if they were seriously a couple, as opposed to just hooking up on and off, JA wouldn't be able to shut her yap about it for too long. She'd just manage to find a way to make it known without coming out and saying it. Her "distancing" herself from him is as calculating as anything else she does. Let's get real here... who on earth watches Julia in all her glory more than JULIA? She saw this video before it was posted, she knew his voice would be recognized by those who were familiar with him, and though it was heavily edited, it didn't seem to be a big problem that there's a glimpse of his face somewhere in the clip. Then there's the response to the email, which someone AGAIN made a point about earlier, she didn't have to respond at all if privacy was the thing. She gave an answer/courted speculation and assumption that it was indeed him in the video to someone she KNEW wasn't even an anonymous visitor to this site BUT A REGULAR POSTER ON IT. Please.
