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.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
