Ivy League's Next Top Model.

I've been a bad blogger. No, not just bad, horrifically negligent. I personally think that Blogger should shut down my blogspot just because of my shoddy behavior. I disgust myself.

That being said, I have many new posts in the works. =) Blogging is something that I've definitely missed and something I'm definitely coming back to as of... [looks at watch]... NOW. So many things to say about summer, people, traveling, culture, books, and most important of all--FASHION. Quoting the grossly distasteful CW theme song, "Get ready, 'cause here we go..."

Speaking of the CW, Cycle 9 of ANTM IS HEEEEEEEEEERE. Cycle 8 was disappointingly produced: girls who were chronic complainers, bad photoshoot themes, and who the hell associates high fashion with Australia? Ksubi Jeans rock the house but can hardly be considered couture (even if Gemma Ward hikes those skin-tight torture devices up so far that she gets camel toe). A short review/prediction courtesy of Crumbled Maps:

Heather - Fantastic idea putting her on the show. I've read about Asperger's before; it's like autism combined with high level anxiety. Interesting-looking girl, but she's total bait for all the other bitchy girls on the show (i.e. ALL OF THEM).
Jenah - "Like, I mean, I'm not like these other girls, I'm, like, smart, you know? Like, I read books and stuff." News flash: Teen Vogue is not a book.
Ebony - Great. Another Jade. At least she doesn't look 40.
Chantal - Seriously. Are all the girls from down south obsessed with themselves? It's time to pull that tampon out of your ass.
Victoria - Repping the Ivy League, what's up?! I was wondering if the producers would smarten up and start putting decently intelligent girls on the show who can hold an entire conversation that's not about themselves, their pole-grinding backgrounds, or the fact that they only auditioned so they could "get their haaair did and look FIERCE like Tyra, girl, you know what I sayin'?" I almost pity her; she'll probably lose a lot of credibility by being on this show when she goes back to Yale. Still, I hope she wins.

Ivy League, save us from the superficial idiocy that is American youth!

I'm debating whether or not to follow the show. It's gotten more ridiculous each cycle, and I guess I should expect some level of superficiality considering it's a modeling competition. But it's depressing that these girls represent the substance of America.

The word "fierce" gets thrown around too much on the show. Tyra needs a thesaurus.

REAL + SUBSTANTIAL POST SOON.

yayy, I'm so glad that you're back! It feels like you've been away for ages, and you were certainly one of my top blog buddies when you are in "your prime" ha.

But I hope you've had a fantastic summer, anyway. Everyone has kind of been on and off with blogging, and september is usually to month when a few people drop of the radar with college responsabilities, but the rest of us are back on track! Hoorahh.

I hope it doesn't sound as bitchy to you as it does to me!

Brown, Dartmouth, and now Yale? I love it when Ivy League girls go on. It makes me feel less bad about not wanting to go to an Ivy League.

The show hasn't really produced any REAL models. I hope they do that this season. I always hope that at least one or two girls will get picked up by a major agency. We'll see!

Oh wow, you have to tell me what song this is! I was a bit surprised to hear it at first and was wondering which site it was from cause I had opened so many tabs... I love chill out music! Destination Lounge, anyone?

Jade= Half man, half solid gold dancer. I can't believe she's going to be a kindergarten teacher.

here in the UK we've only got cycle 8 on at the moment, but I've already learned it off by heart from everyone's blogs! I guess I'll just have to make due with living vicarioulsy through bloggers who give ANTM updates. thankyou for indulging me...
