Real World D.C.


So in the neverending story of how reality television dominated the world, it is impossible to overlook where it all began. "The Real World" was one of the first shows that pulled Amerikay and the rest of the globe into reality tv, and it still hasn't been canceled.

Tonight was the premiere of it's latest location, where 8 strangers live in a Washington D.C. house and do God knows what... Yes, that's 8...not 7.

This season on the show where people stop being polite and start being real, there are 4 guys and 4 girls out there to enchant us.

So yeah, this season there are some people who will be really interesting and others that are totally fake and not worth a second of your time.

One jerk/woman was so annoying...she's all like "I heart obama! I own a passport,but I've never used it." Another was a blonde nincompoop, who has nothing to say. There is also a rather attractive girl who grew up in the church but is now a wild child.
And of course.....................a musician.

For the guys. WHO CARES?!?!?!??!?

The only guy that is remotely fun to watch is the quirky and socially awkward bloke from Colorado who got kicked out of art school. Why? because he's funny. The rest are lame as stale marshmallows.

The result for "The Real World: DC."

Don't watch it!!!

However, if you happen to catch an episode out of boredom and preventing you from a nervous crisis explosion.. Go for it. It won't put you to sleep, but it might give you a splitting headache.

QATFYG: Do you watch the real world? If so which season? I still adore Lori from Back to New York. Also, do you blame the real world for this craze of reality tv....or would you toss the blame on Survivor or Idol?

  1. so, I watched the premiere, and I have to say, I was a little impressed. the people they picked were not universally, face-meltingly 'hot' (the mtv definition and my definition of 'hot' diverge, but I know what music television looks for when it tries to win male viewers with fap-worthy babez0rs) and there was some, dare I say it, natural intelligence present. I just think it's funny, they had to make intelligence at least PART of their decision process this time around (as opposed to RWC). And I think the ex-cult girl is my favorite.

    Also, I love how that cartoonist guy was making the dumb southern blonde girl think so hard it looked as though she was in physical pain.

    Since MTV has been declining in quality for the past several years, a few good seasons of the real world have emerged.

    For example, Hollywood was really good. (ha cheap rhyme). But then again sydney and denver were totally boring. there is some hope for DC. However, I will not watch it religiously....maybe just catch the marathon reruns.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

Tusse releases French Language Version of "Voices"

In case you missed Eurovision this past weekend - and if you're an American, you likely did - there were some truly talented acts among those competing for this year's prestigious title. There were some pretty boring acts, and there were only a few of truly strange contestants this time around (bummer).  Sweden's act Tusse was pretty talented; his joyful and uplifting track "Voices" was actually one of the few that seemed rather memorable to me. Turns out he's releasing it in French - which makes sense, as Tusse is Kongo-Kinshasa born. Tusse is enormously popular in Sweden from what I can tell, having won both Melodifestivalen (Sweden's precursor to Eurovision) and Swedish Idol. He's a talented guy, and I'm sure we're just seeing the start of what is bound to be a long and prolific career.   (you might not be able to watch this outside of Sweden so, see below) The French version of "Voices" is available for streaming here .  Also, whi

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
