Wanna be on top?

Hello Bloggers! Brigitte here! This just in--socialite bloggers Chris and Qualler have been seen about town with some unexpected friends. But I thought you were strictly a "twosome," if you catch my drift (and I'm sure you all do!). So what then, can we expect from an ensemble that a duo could not deliver? Here's a hint:















(Frasier: ensemble!)





(Sleepless in Seattle: not an ensemble)


I think the answer to my question is clear: ensembles have been taking America by storm, and it's about time our culture savvy friends jump on this bandwagon. I hope you can handle sharing the spotlight, boys! Once a diva, always a diva, and we know how those attention seekers can be!

But now I want to take a little break from the gossip so that I can thank Tyra Banks. Tyra Banks, thank you! Finally, FINALLY, someone in the fashion industry has the courage to introduce diversity into the world of high fashion. Finally, an autistic model! I'm so glad that Tyra Banks decided to tackle the all-too-long ignored issue of autism and professional modeling. And, in case the audience forgets which one is autistic, the narration reminds it each time the camera focuses on her that she has "asperger's syndrome, which is a mild form of autism." Let's see what the asperger's home page has to say about this disability:

In Asperger's Disorder, affected individuals are characterized by social isolation and eccentric behavior in childhood. There are impairments in two-sided social interaction and non-verbal communication. Though grammatical, their speech is peculiar due to abnormalities of inflection and a repetitive pattern. Clumsiness is prominent both in their articulation and gross motor behavior. They usually have a circumscribed area of interest which usually leaves no space for more age appropriate, common interests. Some examples are cars, trains, French Literature, door knobs, hinges, cappucino, meteorology, astronomy or history. The name "Asperger" comes from Hans Asperger, an Austrian physician who first described the syndrome in 1944.

And who is the face of aspergers?


Oh, yeah, and I guess that Heather girl who actually suffers from the disorder...I guess maybe she could be inspiring, too.
Tyra Banks, who has already been a pioneer in feminism and fashion, now takes on this incredible burden of making asperger's known to little girls all over the world. Now all the little girls at home who thought they couldn't be models because of their mild disabilities, but happen to also be 6 feet talk and weigh 115 pounds, can be inspired, thanks once again to Tyra. Ms. Banks, is there any issue you won't tackle??







So the models are disabled, ensembles have trumped the pairs, and the gossip is sizzling!

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell!

xoxo,
Brigitte.

    hip hop hurray for the first actual non-chris/qualler post on the blogulator! today is a special day! (sorry drax, you BLEW it).

    p.s. gossip girl rocked my socks off last night. "dad, i don't think late-90s post-punk math-rock is what ivy leaguers, etc.(didn't hear the rest cuz i was laughing too hard!!!)..." WHAAATTTT??!?!

    it's been two days without discussion of the cavemen show..

    blogulator is at situation: critical. this must be remedied!!!

  3. Blogger Brigitte | 12:47 PM |  

    The caveman show sucks so hard, i don't even know where a discussion would begin. Someone decided to take a not-very-funny-even-the-first-time-you-see-it commercial and turn it into a sitcom. Why? Also, I can just hear the think tank session that went on in order to create the original concept for Cavemen

    "hey, it's like, you can't make fun of anyone anymore. everyone's so sensitive!"

    "i know, man. you can't say gay, or retarded, or anything"

    "i bet if freaking CAVEMEN were still around, people would have to be PC about them, too. Even they would get offended, just like the gays and the tards. CAVEMEN, man!"

    "hmmm...I think you're on to something..."

    Brigitte,
    You Rock, Thanks for some female prespetive on the blogulator. I am sadden by top model. Mostly because Jay stop looking like a clown :(

  5. Blogger chris | 1:13 PM |  

    yeah, i think cavemen speaks for itself...even i wouldn't subject myself to watching that show for free...and i paid 8 dollars to see across the universe (teaser for impending blog review)...

  6. Blogger Brigitte | 1:29 PM |  

    haha, i know, why does jay dress like a normal human now? that's not fun...

    Wow! Blogging looks like fun, especially when it's about TV, movies, and music. I wish I blogged, because then maybe I would have been invited to join, too. :(

    I love that a lot of teen shows and movies ("She's All That," Never Been Kissed," etc.) idolize Dartmouth because it's SO old money and totally legacy students! It's nice that they don't mention that it's in the smallest town in the boonies and there's not much to do but freeze and/or snowshoe in winter (or sit around and be elite). I should know. I grew up there. Also, no one says "Go green!" It's Big Green, foo.

    You know you love me.

    Bah. Cavemen. I'd rant about it but it's so unrantable and there's such a non-reason for it to exist that it's not worth blogging about. p.s. Brigitte and I got bored 1 1/2 episodes into Gossip Girl. Good shows are the new so-bad-it's-good shows. Pushing Daisies, now THERE'S a topic to blog about. That is, after the revolution of the music industry put on by Radiohead (another sneak peek into next week!)
    p.p.s. now that there are actual girls who blog here, no one can accuse Chris and I of being blog nerds. CHICKS, man, CHICKS.

    Pushing Daisies? Pushing it off my DVR list. That crap was HORRID.

    GO GREEN!
