Welcome to the terrible majesty of the bray and the cray!
Thumbs up! I just made my first 41 cents per post! Yeah!
JESUS. She looks her actual age without all that spackle on her face.
She does look nice (and normal) here. Props, Julia.
PP you can still see that big old botox bump under her left eye. Dr. Bobby Buka is a really shoddy doctor.
Nice to see she made sure to get her good side, though. That's our Jules!
Who's the poor gymp next to her?
@partypants : Her actual age? She looks like a hard living 40!
At least she's not throwing a gang sign.
Julia is in SEA WORLD!!!! with her high school friend "rbillow." She bragged on her blog that she would only grace SEA WORLD!!!! with her presence if they/IZEA forked out for a plus one to come. Girlfriend is WAAAAY too insecure to go anywhere by herself.
Is SeaWorld a crappy place to go to this summer? Is she happy because she's paid to? Can I trust anything she says?Meh.
Yup, definitely a chin implant.
Hey it's "rbillow"! The famous um...the founder of uh...editor for...um...wait who is she? Could Julia not get one of her Status Pals™ to come along?
"tedmurphyGoing to spend the day with a bunch of bloggers at Manta tomorrow and I can't wait! http://tinyurl.com/pwxcfk #sponless than a minute ago from web"LMFAO uhhh okie doke teddy
Julia Allison doesn't have any status friends left. Why do you think she stayed home from/wasn't invited to that Gawker party, has NOTHING lined up after this Sea World!!!! trip and barely even mentions Randi Zuckerberg anymore? It's not because of "exhaustion" or "being an introvert" .. it's because she is the laughing stock of the web 2.0 world for basically sinking to being a cheap and cheesy blog for dollars shill. All of her posturing, insinuations and fakery in the world can't hide the fact that she is at pretty much the bottom rung of everything that's wrong with web 2.0.
Enough suspense, Julia. Tell us which prestigious college(s) your friend went to!
PP, RBillow is the writer/editor of zinger passive aggressive comments towards Julia on twitter. Don't discount the value and status of that role please.
oh, panty thief, now i almost feel sorry for julia. it's like the web 2.0 world played her. like when they tell you as a child "everyone can grow up to be an astronaut", and then as an adult you realize that was such a lie. not everyone can win. and admitting defeat is very hard. sniff.
Julia Allison: from Wired cover girl to shilling for Shamu. Can I have an extra scoop of schandenfreude with karma sauce on top and a side of comeuppance because this is just too delicious not to savor.
All I have to add is that she tweeted to Shamu. She by far needs therapy, which we have known for a long time.
"Here I am with Amber!! Ineffable entrepreneur/founder of Newhampshireafterdark.com and just two credits shy of her associate's degree from Keene State College! The Harvard of southwestern New Hampshire!"
Blurry pictures of belugas and manatees (please do not make comparisons. Or do) are included in the A Game content coming out of Julia's blog at the moment. Click on over (or don't) so she can earn her fifty cents per click, folks! (Still waiting on that disclosure to be added to her blog) By tweeting Shamu she is just doing her job "transferring value" folks! Mama's gotta pay for her $500 chaise lounge and designer makeup somehow!
She's not even linking to Sea World in her posts. Where's the context? A new reader might as well be looking at the Manatee at the Idaho Aquarium... She doesn't even shill well.
3:57, your comment was strangely ineffable.
Thank you. It's worrisome how ineffable it was, isn't it. So strange that you would think it is ineffable, too. Psychotic almost. Have a nice day! xoxo
@FUCK CAMPING - I think there's really something to that. When all this new media stuff was really new like 5-10 years ago, it promised to democratize media. You didn't have to get a gig writing for the NYT or your very own MTV show anymore - you could now self-publish, develop your own audience directly, and become successful all by yourself. Airheads like Julia decided to make that type of new media fame their life's work, but failed to understand the importance of actual talent and quality output.
She has double posted two photos of a Manatee with the words "The Manatee" under the photo. Thanks JA. Your blog is very informative. I would have thought it was a kitten. A game content.
Shamulia, thanks for the laffs.
There are 3 types of people who go to SeaWorld:1. Kids2. Grown up assholes who think swimming with dolphins is SO COOL and don't have the brain to think about how sad dolphins in captivity is. (50% chance that these folks have a dolphin and/or tribal tattoo somewhere)3. Parents who realize that Sea World is a travesty to nature despite what they tell you about "helping our ocean mammal friends" during the Shamu show, but they don't really care because Sea World shuts their kids up for a while and tires them out enough that at the end of the day the kids go to sleep early and the parents can have a Corona Light and maybe a quickie.
But she's not SAYING or WRITING anything. Like, what in the world are the those creatures, how do they act, what does a trip to Sea World entail (for those who will actually have to PAY to go there). I can forgive her for being paid to fly down there, but I can't forgive her just posting a picture or two (of herself) on the premises.
Could she fucking buy a decent camera at least and take some basic lessons in photography if that's all she's going to post? Jesus, my three-year-old could take a better picture. Stop dissing Kodak, Shamulia, get one of their cameras and have one of their technicians teach you a fucking thing or two.
Wait, you mean to tell me that no one has taken Shamulia for a username here yet? For shame.
rbillow, the plus one high school friend, is posting more informative content than Julia. From her twitter: "Just fed and pet and got kisses from Juno, a beluga whale at Sea World. So amazing!! I want a pet beluga for my b-day. Please?about 2 hours ago from TwitterFon" Wow. Just Shamwow.
JESUS. Look at Julia's deadened eyes in that picture. She looks like an addict from the show Intervention. If she keeps staying up for almost three days straight, she will never make it to 30. She looks like she's about to crash and burn, BIG TIME.
Not true that Julia doesn't have any status friends left. She has Meghan. Okay, Meghan doesn't have any status besides being like, really, really rich. Yahhhh.That's another really dumb fuckup who started with a heap of advantages and managed to waste every single one. Meghan is a pointy-nosed little twat.
Loving Julia's content for the day: A post in the rain, a whale, and a double post of a manatee. Loser. Vomit.
Julia Allison: "Like anything I’m paid for, I don’t promise anything other than to show up." She says it right there - don't expect anything else but total laziness and shit on her blog. She just shows up, collects her paycheck and goes home. She is like the welfare abuser of the blogging world. No wonder she doesn't have any web or media friends left. How embarrassing to associate with someone who is so incredibly proud of being a lazy fuck.
@5:01 That was my first thought. She knew about this trip for MONTHS. She knew Seaworld involved dark spaces and large dark fish tanks. Her friend Mary has sponsorship with Kodak, and recently helped Julia obtain a dress for the WHCD, could she not get a proper fucking camera? I have polariods from 1983 that look better.
OMG, "the welfare abuser of the blogging world." Shamoolia gets Prize Comment du Jour.
All of Julia's web fluffing last week wasn't for Mr. Harvard. It was for her "consulting" gig with IZEA: - the posting of celeb snaps on her blog's photo page- the posting of old and watermarked press photos on her FB page- the Julia's press page- the link to the old Huff Po article she wrote- the spiffing up of her blog She was trying to impress this Ted Murphy, the CEO of IZEA and falsely convince him that she was someone important and worth paying for "consulting" with him about social media. What a con artist. I can't believe how companies and executives get scammed by her over and over again. She is such a fraud. I guess they at least figure it out once they meet her in person ... it seems like she NEVER gets invited anywhere twice.
Shamoolia, my God, you are so right. Here I thought she had some sort of epiphany and realized she had to start blogging more often after she got all those "supportive" e-mails. In fact, she was presenting a facade of productivity for the Izea guy.
Still, Shamoolia (love the handle!!!), can't these social media/marketing people do what they expect everybody else to do, i.e. network and exchange experiences and opinions? If they suck at this how am I ever supposed to believe in the power of social networking/marketing voodoo? Or maybe those who have first hand experience with Julia gladly recommend her to competitors in the hope she might do them even greater harm. Who knows... :-)
julia's last couple of posts make me think of some slow kid posting tons of whale pictures to their geocities page... cos they are so obsessed with whales omg and other sea mammals .something kind of like this: http://www.geocities.com/RainForest/Jungle/1953/p.html(i mean, her pink tutu picture, and then right next to it: The Manatee. strikes you as kind of shortbus content, right?)
The mistake "double" manatee post has been up for 3 hours. Does she ever look at her own site?
Wow Meghan's readers are real gems. Below an snippet from reader email she received:"I lived with a 300 pound slutty sex addict (sorry to be blunt but four years later I’m still bitter!) who had no problem bringing boys back to the room while I was sleeping. And then she would proceed to have LOUD sex while I was there."Though I'd stumbled upon a Teen Magazine article for a moment.
Also is Meghan's sister mentally challenged? Meghans is posting a LOT of helpful "tips" for a big girl:"As you well know, I’m on a mission to help my little sister get acclimated to the city as quickly as possible. I thought it would be helpful to put together a list of resources to assist her (and anyone else out there) searching for a killer internship. Here are some of my favorite spots on the web: "And, um, if you google "internships" her recommendations are like the top 3 search returns.
Didn't Cisco state it did not pay Nonsociety as a sponsor but yet Julia says they did in the Gawker article?
Big fish. Water. Another big fish. Rain on my wangs. Nobody here knows me. Fish. Rain. I used to be on Fox. My head is wet. Yeah, you guessed it...another fish. My bathing suits won't fit. My iPhone is soaking wet. Is that OK? Fish are boring. My wangs weigh like 20 lbs now. Crappy hotel, the A/C makes my room feel like the frozen foods section. Rain, rain go away. I want to lipdub outside, not in my room. What is wrong with Florida with all this rain? This is what Dublin must be like. My shoes are squishy. Hello? Hello? I'm famous.
love how this guy http://twitter.com/aschek has to correct julia on who the ceo of fayerwayer.com is, re: her latest tweet. it's worrisome how dumb she can be.
# aschek With @juliaallison at the SeaWorld dinner. Great sweet girl. BTW the founder of @fayerwayer is @leoprieto 3 minutes ago from Tweetie # Picture_4_normal juliaallison Tapas with the Busch entertainment marketing team - & @aschek, founder of FayerWayer.com 17 minutes ago from txtHa! She was sitting next to two gentlemen at dinner and got their respective companies mixed up! oops.
According to Meghan, NYC doesn't have any decent Mexican food. Now that's just a lie.
@7:49I must say that it is hard to find good, home style, Mexican in NYC unless you go to small immigrant owned places, like the hole in the wall on Bedford Avenue (??). And we know that Meghan is not one to actually explore her city outside Soho to the UES. In short, her recommendations sucked. And it's "tex mex" or "southwestern" that most "Mexican" places in NYC serve up; not "latin american" (wtf?) as she called it.
I know some a superfine Mexican NYC spot but I'll be dammned if I'm gonna tell Meghan Asshat!
Not "Mexican" but "Latin American"? What is that asshat talking about? How has she made it this far? I think she has the lowest IQ and least intellectual curiosity of the 3 of them, and that's saying A LOT.
getting back to the cisco sponsorship: "Cisco did not sponsor NonSociety at CES; rather we employed them to develop media assets".oxymoronic corporate double-talk.here's more of foolia and snoozeville at the forefront of a journalism revolution:http://blogs.cisco.com/consumer/comments/nonsociety_bloggers_julia_allison_and_meghan_asha/(i just can't get over how clueless meghan is)
Yesterday Julia Allison was prominently featured on the Izea front page as a "featured blogger." Today, gone (the other people who were on there yesterday are still in place). If I didn't find pay per post and "sponsored conversation" so revolting I'd almost feel sorry for the company for spending their money on a PR implosion.
Schiap: "sponsored conversation" is one of the most odious euphemisms that Web 2.0 has spawned. My stomach churns everytime I see it. Bray for pay, though--that's a keeper.
It roughly translates to "Paying you to talk about our product," right? And calling Allison a consultant is rich. She's being paid to hawk product by a company paid to find bloggers to write about their products. It's all a circle, you see?The term "consultant" is applied so liberally that it means nothing. Literally nothing.
