2020.09.20 03:31 grandfellSerena's beauty
anyone find it strange that serena seems very beautiful from afar but once the camera is right up her face she looks average. like a few, I was one of those people that it took a while to figure out Blair was actually prettier than Serena. I think this is also because the show drove the narrative that serena was prettier than blair and blair was jealous about it and insecure. Now, the character serena may be prettier than blair in the gossip girl world but Leighton Meester is prettier than Blake Lively and that could be very derailing to the story. how would you define serena's beauty? I think Serena is indeed beauty but this is not the first time when the self proclaimed prettiest girl in a teen show does not have the prettier actresses in the show playing her. and yeah I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder but this is what makes Blair's beauty more interesting and Serena's quite overrated to fans.
2020.09.10 04:27 Soft-FutureThis unpopular opinion is probably more unpopular than Dair...
...but I honestly don't like blair's fashion sense. Leighton Meester is beautiful!!!! but the show just doesn't do a good job at making her look good. Sometimes Serena wears odd clothes but i Think Blake Lively can pull it off idk. But I never understood how everyone was so obsessed with her outfits and all like just no?
2020.07.28 02:39 beeemkclBlair/Dan would have likely lasted longer if the show wasn't soon going to cancelled.
What's in this post is what I remember, my opinions, etc.
I consider it was probably the writers knowing they were maybe only getting 1 more Season that BlaiDan ended when it did. In context, it didn't make much sense that Blair Waldorf so relatively easily and readily went back to Chuck Bass and Dan Humphrey so relatively easily and readily had sex with Serena Van Der Woodsen.
Dan literally wrote a novel about how awesome Blair is and how awesome she is compared to everyone else in their age group in the Upper East Side. And Dan was becoming increasingly successful and would obviously end up very rich. And Blair was happy with Dan and she enjoyed the sex with Dan. And yet...
Dan chooses Blair as one of his muses (the other 2 being Serena and Charles Bass). He doesn't have a girlfriend or any serious relationship after Dan and Blair become 'friendlier' until Blair seemingly becomes increasingly interested in Chuck again.
And remember how easily Lola Rhodes becomes the new "It girl?" Lola is an actress and Dan was seemingly in love with Olivia Burke. Dan dated Ivy Dickens for a moment. Lola was given half of CeCe's estate. Dan probably considers Serena better-looking than Lola. But it was odd Dan never pursued Lola unless Dan was actually serious and committed to Dan/Blair. It's kinda sad that Gossip Girl was cancelled because of low ratings. Nowadays, it would have likely lasted probably several more years. Both Leighton Meester and Penn Badgely liked the BlaiDan storyline and very likely wouldn't have minded it continuing.
Georgina Sparks is essentially a 'better' version of Blair Waldorf. And the show had people such as Olivia Burke and Lola Rhodes who could have been considered 'better' versions of Serena Van Der Woodsen. Dan never pursues Lola--and Dan/Lola would have made far more sense than Nate/Lola-- and Dan has Georgina as essentially his 'last resort' backup plan.
Blair was seriously hurting her relationships with Serena and Chuck by dating Dan. Dan was a more important relationship to her than Nate Archibald and Prince Louis. She relatively quickly 'goes back' to Chuck and it doesn't really make much sense. Dan was seriously hurting his relationships with Serena and Chuck by dating Blair. Blair was a more important relationship to him than Olivia Burke and Vanessa Abrams.
The writing could have still made Serena/Dan and BlaiChuck 'endgame', but, in context, it was done rather sloppily and didn't make much sense. Serena's filming the Serena/Dan sex didn't make much sense. Dan would have eventually found out about it.
So I’ve seen a poll about the worst GG actress here and Blake Lively won it. I did always have a feeling Leighton Meester was the true talent between the two but I also have this thing where I often mistake bad acting for nuances of a characterisation (for instance, when someone is overacting I usually think they chose to simply make their character a bit extra) so I was wondering is there any scene in which you thought Lively failed to drive her point home or that you thought would have been better if she had had more talent/worked harder?
2020.07.10 17:54 GarlicknottodaysatanWhy make Carrie Bishop so central to the plot/mystery of the movie if they couldn't get the same actress?
This is a very minor nitpick in the grand scheme of things, but I don't understand why the writers chose to make Carrie Bishop be the character that was Logan's murdered girlfriend if they weren't able to use the same actress. I understand that they wanted it to be a familiar name from high school so the audience had some connection to them and it didn't feel like they'd just made up a character solely for the movie -- but why choose a character who was played by a recognizable and fairly well-known actress when you can't get that actress back for the movie? Why not just choose a different Neptune High alum to play this role? There was nothing about Carrie Bishop the character that made her particularly perfect for that choice. It just seems like a strange writing choice to me because it took me out of the plot to see this different actor. Does anyone know the behind-the-scenes about this? Were they originally planning on having Leighton Meester back but had last minute scheduling conflicts and it was too late to change the script? Doesn't seem like it would be completely unfeasible to get her for a day just to shoot a music video and some magazine cover photos. Did anyone else feel this way?
2020.05.31 18:01 throwaway46472Scleral Show Is Not a Falio
Hi Ladies, Wanted to challenge an assumption I am seeing on this sub about scleral show (whites showing under eyes) being objectively unattractive. While I do think “hooded/feline” eyes are attractive, I think large, round eyes are also quite beautiful. Depending on one’s aesthetic, a few mm of lower scleral show can make one look more attractive by making the eye look more sultry, innocent, or neotenous. There’s a reason most Disney princesses are drawn to have scleral show. Scleral show often gives a doe-eyed look, which we see in many models. That is why so many women use white eyeliner on bottom eyelids. This phenomena honestly seems to be a product of shifting our beauty standards to a homogenous “instagram girl” aesthetic. Many beauty icons of the past (I.e. Audrey, Marilyn) were admired for their large, doe-like eyes and visible lids. Let’s celebrate diversity when it comes to eye shapes - all can be beautiful - and avoid propagating narrowly defined standards of beauty. I agree there are some things that are objective unattractive, but this is not one of them. Some examples below, let me know what you think. This is for a few mm of lower scleral show, as upper is quite uncommon. 1.Mila KunisMila Kunis 2
Edit: I’m posting this as I was driving myself crazy thinking that my round eyes are not attractive, when they actually fit my face very well, and can be played up nicely with eyeshadow and liner. :) Edit 2: Also edited to no longer say almond eye shapes are Eurocentric. Scleral show can occur with any ethnicity.
Hey guys! As promised in this comment, I decided to take a deep dive into the endeavor to type Rachel McAdams. I've watched a few videos, looked at her body proportions in a few different weights and analyzed the fit of several outfits. So let's get right into the meat of this. Disclaimer: I try to "type" people by assessing what looks more harmonious/complimentary on their bodies, not necessarily by associating features with a specific type (eg. large eyes = gamine). My point is to not fit people into a box but rather see what bring their essence and beauty out. Background: Rachel McAdams has long been thought of as a Theatrical Romantic. David Kibbe himself has claimed he does not think she's a TR at all, but other Kibbe Youtubers (who I do realize are "unofficial" sources) have continued to classify her as a TR. Why? Where does this confusion come from? What type is she most likely? Height and Vertical Line: Rachel is reportedly 5'4" (1.62 m). Her vertical line appears moderate to slightly short. What I mean by this is that it's really easy for her to conceal this by hiding her feet and wearing elongating silhouettes (in a dress, or in dressy pants). Someone with an obviously super short vertical line would have a harder time doing this. However, as soon as you expose the ankles, you can tell she is on the shorter side pretty much immediately, like in this long pink dress and this aqua one. We can also compare her standing next to Ryan Gosling (6'0") to get a feel of how short she actually looks, here. Still, next to more petite actresses, like her Mean Girls co-stars Amanda Seyfried and Lacey Chabert, she does look slightly taller than them. I'd argue both Lacey and Amanda have more obvious shorter vertical lines and Lindsay has a significantly longer one despite only being only one inch taller than Rachel (5'5"). Body Shape: Her body doesn't appear to change drastically at a variety of weights. This is the skinniest she seems to have ever looked in the public eye, and even then, we see a pretty defined waist and cinched figure, with slightly sharper shoulders that don't look particularly broad, nor sloped or rounded. This is the closest I could find to a swimsuit. She's definitely a little softer here, but I think it's in the arms rather than the shoulders, and the waist definition is still there, though not as prominent with more weight. Here we can see her in motion, but unfortunately the arms are hidden by the shirt. Her leg doesn't look extremely long even when she extends it, which contributes to the shorter effect we see above. So, now for lines. Let's go by exclusion. Because of her waist definition and height I'd start by ruling out some of the more extreme Yang types, like FN or D. We really see that less constructed outfits don't do much in terms of highlighting her figure. This pink dress would be great for long vertical lines like D and also FN to an extent but I don't love it on her, and this emerald one I could see working for Ns, and it looks okay, but it's not a stunner. You can really see her shoulders are not particularly big or prominent in proportion to her body, even when toned, in this last photo. They slope somewhat but I still think they look pretty sharp. Can we exclude Natural altogether? I'd say she's too short for FN, but let's see more. Is this a dated SN look? Yes. Proportion-wise this one just makes me think of how small she is. This is not incredible either. Rachel wears SN a lot in a street style way (I think not to get recognized) and really goes for more compact waist looks when in front of the camera. In fact, when she wears something a little loser that still has that more cinched element she actually carries it quite well. Still, these looks require an element of work to harmonize with her. It's not effortless. It needs styling. See here, an un-styled "Natural" look just doesn't seem right. I would discard the Natural family for Rachel. Next, most obvious: Dramatic. The vertical line alone should be enough, so I won't spend a lot of time here. She rarely wears anything pure D. The tan pants and long pink dress that I already linked are the closest, and even then, lady likes her tailoring! (Edit: this also. Gives me a slight David Byrne vibe and I don't love it) This is more of an SD flavor. This is borderline Romantic but has that sharpness of Dramatic.This one also. I think we have a similar effect where we see how tiny she is first and foremost. I'm discarding Dramatic. A brief intermission in how I decide what "looks good" to me. I assess this on how balanced it is in comparison to the body. If, for example, several lines hide or look awkward in a person's body, exaggerating or hiding features instead of complementing them, we are more likely to notice what is wrong with them. In Rachel's examples, her shortness is exaggerated by the wrong lines (even though 5'4" is borderline petite, spoken from a 5'1" person over here lol). Moving forward! Let's look at the classic family. Anyone can wear classic. Because it's "classic," classic won't look bad on anyone, it just won't look memorable as it does on the Classics. Once again, most Classics are balanced and wouldn't have Rachel's shorter vertical line, but let's give it a whirl. DC. Very basic, very classy. You can't go wrong, but you could go better. This one could work, but it just looks a little stiff. Another borderline moment (she really doesn't wear DC to be honest, this last one is really a stretch). But we can see as soon as we add that waist emphasis and feminine detail we get something really nice for her. As far as Soft Classic, I know everyone is thinking peak Notebook era, but I will have you know most of those outfits looked just a little too busy, vibrant and fun for a true Classic. This one, I guess would probably pass and doesn't look bad, but this is more of a True Classic. I know the picture isn't extremely high res, but I don't see this one being a standout. Here is Rachel in your everyday office look. I just think she looks a tad bland and once again her shortness really bleeds through. This is classic-ish but has several elements that make it look like a cute, everyday look for her: tulip skirt, fitted proportions, slight detailing. Here is the classic-est moment of the Notebook. Bad? No. Slightly suffocated? A tad. I'm going to discard Classic on Rachel. Ah, we're now entering controversial territory: remember, this is just my personal point of view! Not gospel. I am not David Kibbe and I cannot speak for his assessment of her frame, but at this point I should make it clear that I have come to a conclusion and I hope you guys will at least entertain it! Let's go! We have come to notice we need clothes that accommodate Rachel's short vertical frame and cinched waist the most. She is predominantly Yin and shines when the Yin features are highlighted. An example? Let's take a look at her in FG, which is our only Yang-heavy type left. There's something to be said about how tall she looks here, but it doesn't really look like her. Her waist seems broader somehow, and we all know she is very narrow there! Here she looks like the skirt works nicely, but the fitted top is, again, giving her a slightly boyish figure. This is as FG the red carpet can get. You see here the problem isn't how short she looks, but that there's a part of her body that is hidden from view. This one has a more feminine bow detail but I just don't like the shape of the dress. She needs waist emphasis. Rachel is not a Flamboyant Gamine. We're edging closer. Let's take a look at this hotly contented Romantic family and the only other type left, Soft Gamine. I don't think Rachel is a pure Romantic. Point blank. Again the resolution is terrible, but look at this dress. All the lush and voluptuousness needed to fill out this dress are missing. Something similar happens to my body when I try to do this, and it has nothing to do with bewbs! Compare to Leighton Meester, who doesn't have a particularly generous chest size and I strongly believe to be an R or TR, when she wears a halter top. There's nothing "missing." Her delicacy is strongly accentuated by these drapes, even if she is a little skinnier than your average R (making me lean more more towards TR but this is not a Leighton post). Here is another close up of Rachel in a halter top. What do you see? I see slight sharpness (and note, she is by no means underweight here). Soft, draped Romantic lines swallow her. Another terrible photo, but the same idea, she looks a little separate in Romantic. Rachel is not a Romantic. I promise this is the last disclaimer I will throw out there: I do believe some people can wear multiple lines if their bodies accommodate them. The next two types do have lines that work for Rachel's body so neither will look terrible... but one is more harmonious. Which one? Well, that's a matter of taste. So, going by body proportions alone, Rachel, in my humble opinion is an SG. She has sharp and narrow Yang shoulders with a not-so-prominent bust, and a somewhat curvier bottom Yin part. I have a similar body type but my shoulders are more broad, so I am an SG who can do the SN vibe that is lost on Rachel. What she can do is the TR lines, because both of these styles complement the Yin/Yang balance of her body in different ways (again for her it's waist, waist, waist). I see this dress as the main argument for Rachel being a TR. And I do have to agree, this is one of her best looks, but I think there was some bust emphasis and enhancement going on here because we never get quite the same effect in other outfits. This is another one. Can you spot the difference? People like to point to this as another TR fit, but I honestly think it could work for both types: the animated details are great on Gamines and the waist emphasis really does well in her favor. If anything, someone more obviously voluptuous may end up a little oversexed up in something like this... it doesn't happen here and instead we see her sharpness softened and emphasized, but in a way that complements her body type! I love out-there looks, so I adored this super-long mermaid dress with the birds. The quirky details give her a youthful vibe (yes, even in the Notebook), and because of her sharpness her body handles it well. Geometric detailing, as long as it has waist emphasis and tailored cuts, suits her. But so do the more feminine intricate details she chooses to incorporate. They'll make her look a little more glam and grown up, which is an image she goes for. As long as she doesn't stray too far on one end of the spectrum (overly Yin makes her Yang jump at you), she looks fabulous. See her here compared to Flamboyant Gamine Penelope who's a little trimmer and straighter and looks cute in these tight dresses but not as great as Rachel. At the end of the day it's about the look she's trying to achieve. When she was younger trying to look older (let's ignore those jeans for a second), TR suited her, but she definitely has the bubbly, sprite energy of SG that handles the yin/yang balance with added sharpness, and see how much younger she looks already (Bonus Miley comparison. See how sharp Miley is and how that dress makes her sharpness jump out). Welp, this was long but fun. What do you guys think? Do you agree? Do you not? Why? Do you want to see more Case Files? I've been playing around with other celebrities I'd like to analyze in depth. If anything, at least we rounded up some nice looks! TL;DR: Rachel is most likely SG but can wear TR lines. Doesn't matter because like 99% of the population she wears casual SN, so who cares.
2020.05.12 19:09 misanthropeintI would never send my kids to Neptune High
If you think about it, the place has the highest tv mortality rate, second probably to Sunnydale. Everybody is always dying left, right, and centre and it kinda makes it less of a believable show. Lily dies, Felix dies, everyone in the bus crash dies, Meg dies, Cassidy dies. Even after they leave, they’re still dropping like flies. Leighton Meester’s character and SK (can’t remember her name) dies I’m pretty sure. Heck even Gia, and that other kid who was in Being Human dies. Oh yeah, and then Logan dies. Seriously, Neptune is cursed. Hide yo kids, hide yo wife, cuz the writers are running out of ideas and killing everybody out here.
2020.04.13 18:22 jayden695I finally finished watching Gossip Girl for the first time. Here's how I'd rank the main characters:
For reference I'm a 26 year old male. I just finished it because I love teen dramas and I've always heard how great of a show G.G was. Here are my characters rankings from favorite to least favorite. TL:DR at the bottom 1) Blair: It’s a testament to how great of an actress Leighton Meester is. By all accounts I should absolutely hate the Blair Waldorf character, but I ended up loving her the most out of all the characters due to Leighton's performance. Blair is iconic, fashionable, witty, determined, insecure, afraid, but she knows what she wants and isn’t gonna let anybody get in her way. One of my favorite television characters of all time 2) Nate: He’s the least problematic character on the show(next to Dorota) which makes him one of the best IMO. Some might call him boring and stupid, and honestly, yeah I can't argue with any of that. I'm also not a fan of him humping his way through the U.E.S because that gets old and repetitive after season 3. Still, he’s a pretty good dude and he treats his friends much better than his friend treat him 3) Dan: Season one Dan Humphrey was probably my favorite character on the show but it seemed like the bigger his hair got the bigger his ego got. By the time season 6 starts, the lonely boy who was so easy to like and humble in season 1 is completely unrecognizable in favor of an egotistical weirdo. That being said, I did enjoy the Dair storylines a lot. They made a great couple. 4) Chuck: Chuck bass is a lot of things, drug abuser, alcoholic, narcissist etc. but he’s never boring and that makes for great television. I mean who really wants to watch a show about a well-adjusted billionaire living an every day life. I will say that season 3 Chuck is best version of Chuck by far. I appreciated a more mature Chuck 5) Rufus: I actually don’t have a lot to say about Rufus good or bad he’s just kind of there most of the time. Sleeping with Ivy was fucking dumb and creepy and that image of them in bed is scared into my brain. But, I did like him in seasons 1-4 6) Eric: Eric had the potential to be a great character in the show. I don’t know if it’s the writers or if the actor himself wanted out but his storylines got progressively worse as the show went on. 7) Lily: If sending your own daughter to jail wasn’t bad enough you also had her committed against her will, put an innocent man in jail, went back to a guy who’s clearly evil and who FAKED HIS OWN DEATH!!. In any of the show she would probably be last on my list but since this is the U.E.S... 8) Jenny: It was toss up between Serena and Jenny for this spot and I ended up choosing Jenny mostly because I did sympathize with her a little bit. I can’t defend teaming up with Juliet and Vanessa, or some of the other terrible things that she's done, but Jenny was a victim of the system and not a product of it. If Dan was the absolute best case scenario of what happens when an outsider tries to join the Upper East Side, Jenny was the worst case scenario. U.E.S chewed her up and spit her out. She didn’t deserve that 9) Serena: Where to even begin with Serena. If there is a more selfish character on the show then I have yet to meet them. Sabotaging your cousin because you’re not the IT girl for like a day, really?! Then there's the desperately needing validation from married and much older men, because she's the walking posting child for daddy issues which happens in every season. Also, to top it all off, sleeping with two of her "supposed" BFF boyfriends in a span of what 5 years because she couldn't stand to see her in a happy and healthy relationship for once makes her a terrible fucking person. 10) Vanessa: oh Vanessa oh Vanessa. Not since Julie Taylor on Friday night lights have a hated a fictional character more. I really wanted to like Vanessa at first, I did, but the more the show went on, the more I was able to see that the artsy, fartsy, hipster Brooklyn girl facade that she built up was all a lie and that deep down she was just an evil, manipulative, and controlling as the other upper east siders. The only difference is they had money and power and she was irrelevant TLDR: Blair Waldorf is amazing, DAIR>>>CHAIR, all the blondes on this show are terrible people, Vanessa literally makes me wanna puke
As I threatened yesterday, I'm posting my top 100 songs of the 2010s. Pretty early on I made myself a limit of one song per artist, and then promptly found a loophole to that.

2019.07.16 06:00 ClementineWillySocksHelp - Looking for advice on suit fit and if tailoring would make this suit acceptable
I'm looking for a suit to wear to weddings (as a guest) and other formal events. I'm asking for help here because men's fashion subs tend to be my go tos for fashion advice, I dress fairly masculine and most of the subs geared toward women wearing masculine clothes are pretty dead. I've had good luck finding men's pants, athletic cuts with tapering tend to fit my waist and hips without being too baggy through the legs. I've had more trouble finding men's tops that fit, as my hips and chest are too wide for slim fits but my shoulders and waist are still small. I've had the best luck here with Bonobos button up shirts in size small-tailored-short, though the waist is still somewhat baggy. I ordered the Spier & Mackay Navy Tropical suit in a size 36 contemporary, as it seemed to match my shoulder, hip, and pant measurements better than the other options. I can return the suit with free shipping if I need to. I really like the fabric, and the pants fit very well. I'm looking for tailoring advice - would it be worth it to pay for tailoring on this suit, and are my thoughts on what needs to be tailored doable? What would I expect to pay for tailoring this suit? Here are the pictures of the suit. My thoughts on what needs to be tailored:
Pants need hemmed, and potentially tapered from knee down.
Sleeves shortened (non-functioning buttons)
Chest and waist brought in
Shoulders feel like they fit, but there is a noticeable roll or bump where the sleeve is attached to the shoulder
Jacket is potentially slightly too long
There are spots on the back left shoulder, I haven't tried to clean them at all yet so I'm not sure if they will come out. They were difficult to photograph but are very noticeable.
Is this suit worth tailoring? Edit: I apologize for not making this clear in the original post, but I am a woman. For a general idea of my style, think the basic bastard wardrobe on a woman who wears makeup and has shoulder length big curly hair. In this list Leighton Meester or Shailene Woodley are the closest to the look I'm going for. The rest of the suits have overtly feminine features such as ruffles, skin tight tailoring, etc or they are more fashion forward than what I'm looking for.
2019.06.22 15:56 crazykatnissA few thoughts about GG as someone who was a teenager back in 2007
Gossip Girl’s whole shtick was to be the shocking, hardcore teen show, about teens doing risky things without their parents permission. Now when people watch it you can see they went too far in many places because we changed a lot as a society, especially during these last couple of years. Things like slut shaming, attempted rape, sexual harassment, abuse and parental neglect were not treated properly, partly because of bad writing, partly because of the writers’ need to shock the audience, partly because we, as a society, didn’t look at a tv show and those issues in the same way. I actually remember teenagers at the time complaining it was way too tame! A great example of this is Chuck. Chuck was supposed to be the villain and a secondary character. A rich playboy sleeping with tons of girls and treating them like garbage is cliché and tame, so you have attempted rape, because this is the risky, hardcore teen show. You have to go the extra mile and stand out from the rest of the teen shows, without cursing and showing nudity. But then GG writers began telling the story according to what the majority audience liked and a few episodes later it was decided that Chuck would be an anti-hero kind of romantic lead. This change wouldn’t be possible nowadays without immediate backlash and you wouldn’t even have the attempted rape subplot in the first place, because you’d need good writers to handle it properly, since this is a sensitive subject that could give you bad advertising and kill your show. Not worth the risk. It seems to me that the writers didn’t care as much about the characters’ natural evolution but rather changed the characters to fit the plot they had in mind, in order to get good ratings and those shocking “omfg” moments that were great for promotional teasers. I think it could have been a lot better written and more consistent but it’s also clear that is very dated for our 2019 minds. I see a lot of new viewers complaining about GG, but I see it as a time capsule of ourselves, the audience. And of myself, their target audience back in the day, when it felt actually different and kind of exciting compared to other teen series. I thought GG was bad back in the day but I’ve watched the first two seasons as a guilty pleasure. Season 3 was too boring for me, I like the first part of Season 4 and I don’t care about the rest. The writing went from guilty pleasure bad to ridiculous bad. Bart was alive but then dies falling off a building with some creepy music? Seriously? Blair loses a baby in a car accident and makes a pact with god? Is this a soap opera or a teen show? I can’t even. I guess when your whole shtick is to be shocking and your teen characters grow into adults doing things that are no longer shocking at all, you need to go down the soap opera route to keep it interesting. It would’ve been great to cast actors a bit younger and have 4 seasons of GG following the characters through high school. We could see wild Serena sleeping with Nate but not going away. ETA - I remember some controversy when they were filming the pilot, because of 14 year old Taylor Momsen (Jenny) and her subplot with 20 year old Ed Westwick (Chuck). Leighton Meester’s (Blair) alleged sex tape (with some pictures leaked) were also talked about a lot very early on.
2019.02.02 06:00 ExtraEaterBillboard Hot 100 Year-End Songs of 2009
Ten years. It's been ten years since Barack Obama was first inaugurated, ten years since the death of Michael Jackson, ten years since the premiere of Glee and RuPaul's Drag Race, and other iconic events from the 2000s now stand as even older than ten years. As we approach the end of the 2010s, it's a good time to reflect on good ol' 2009, which I'm sure many can hardly believe was ten years ago. Did we mention that? For your hosts, we have simultaneously gay and straight icon ImADudeDuh and me, the guy who made this. This month, we're rating the Billboard Hot 100 Year-End Songs of 2009, a year which was likely a part of many popheads' childhoods, unless you're like 15 in which case don't stay up too late for this rate, or you might miss your bedtime! This rate is a successor to the amazing Billboard 2012 rate hosted by the lovely Nerdy_boy_chris just two years ago (and check out those mostly correct results). I hope you all have as muc fun doing this rate and getting wistful and nostalgic as we did doing the 2012 rate!
Pop Music's #TenYearChallenge
The throwback trend that is the #TenYearChallenge has served as a convenient way to remember 2009. Observe how careers such as that of Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Kanye West, and Katy Perry have changed for better or for much worse since then. To honor this very well-timed trend, your lovely host ImADudeDuh made a video commemorating how much some of our favorite pop stars have changed since the late 2000s, featuring artists and songs from this very rate!
Listen to each song and assign each one a score between 1 and 10. Decimals are fine, but it can only be to 1 decimal place (7.5 is fine, 7.2 is fine, 7.58 is not).
You may give ONE song a 0 and ONE song an 11. Please reserve these ratings for your least favorite and most favorite tracks, respectively. You may not give your 0 or 11 to the bonus track.
You must listen to and score EVERY song in the main rate. Check to make sure you've scored everything.
Your scores and comments should NOT be considered confidential.
You can change your scores at any time! Feel free to PM ImADudeDuh or myself about it.
Please use the prepared link below to send in your scores. You must use the correct format. The link directly messages me.
If you want to attach a comment to a specific song (which is encouraged!) write it right after your score. Make sure nothing is separating your score and your comment except for a space!
This is the ONE AND ONLY correct format:
Jay Sean feat. Lil Wayne - Down: 9 outsold fifth harmony
These are INCORRECT
Jay Sean feat. Lil Wayne - Down: 9: outsold fifth harmony Jay Sean feat. Lil Wayne - Down: outsold fifth harmony. 9 Jay Sean feat. Lil Wayne - Down: I'm giving this a 9. outsold fifth harmony Jay Sean feat. Lil Wayne - Down: 9-outsold fifth harmony
Just as iconic as the Year-End's Top 25 itself is the DJ Earworm mashup of its Top 25 songs, which is why we're honoring it by featuring it as the only bonus track in this rate. It's already a 100-song rate, after all, so we might as well keep bonus tracks to a minimum. We're curious to see its collective average score.
And remember, you may not give this bonus song your 0 or your 11.
If you have any questions, please feel free to PM ImADudeDuh or me!
The due date for this rate is March 2. We'll be lenient with extensions, but you must PM ImADudeDuh or myself about it at least one day before the due date so that we know. Be sure to provide to what date/time you want the extension to last. It's a relatively short month and a 100-song rate, so we understand.
I’m finally watching Making History. This show is hilarious. A perfect vehicle for Adam Pally’s delivery. And Leighton Meester has never been better. It’s a shame it didn’t do well in the ratings causing Fox to cancel it.
Oprah Winfrey and her partner Stedman Graham have been together for 32 years, and the talk show host maintains their relationship has lasted because he supports her rather than being intimidated by her.
2018.04.12 14:51 WinonaPortmanYoung Adult Pilot Bookings 2018
Last year, I compiled a list of the actors in their 20s who booked leads and series regulars during pilot season and grouped them into the most common educational and training paths based on what I could find of their backgrounds. I did the same this year except that I raised the age range to roughly 23-33 to give those who started later more time to catch up while also allowing some of the former child stars who never got serious about their craft to fade from the scene like they so often do. The difference in results has been surprising. While the percentage of those who studied Theatre/Acting in college or drama school retained its dominance in comparison to the other training paths, that of the former child stars dropped much more significantly than I would have predicted with most of their slack being taken up by those who studied diverse subjects in college and got their primary training in private acting studios. In the meantime, the percentage of those who trained collegiately at the graduate level not only did not increase as I would have predicted, but showed a significant decline. Some of that can undoubtedly be attributed to year-to-year variation, but the difference is interesting nonetheless. I also kept close track of diversity in casting since that has been such a big topic of late and will offer that information in a separate post. Moreover, as for nationality, while 26.6% of bookings were by foreign nationals, it seems that for at least this year, the oft-discussed "British Invasion" has been repelled with only 11 Brits having booked although the Canadians made a strong showing with 22. Like I said last year, this is in no way intended to discourage anyone of any starting age, background, or financial means; but, should rather serve as a reference for the inexperienced kids who come on to ask questions about the different training paths.

I decided to make a list of the actors I think are best suited for certain roles, let me know what you thing kint he comments! Kvothe: Chandler Riggs Old Kvothe/Kote: David tennant Bast: Tom Hiddleston Denna: Leighton MeesteKarley Scott Collins Devi: Scarlett Johansson Master Kilvin: Sean Bean Master Hemme: Hugh Laurie Master Elodin: Robert Carlyle Cinder: David Bradley (Imagine him saying "Someone parents have been singing entirely the wrong sort of songs" In this voice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suUxA3sS2zg) The Chronicler: Daniel Radcliffe Ambrose Jakis: Josh Hutcherson [b]Honorable Mentions:[/b] Master Hemme: Alan Rickman (RIP) Master Elodin: David Bowie (RIP) (Yes I know that most of these are incredibly famous actors and getting all of them would require an absolutely enourmous budget, but this is an ideal cast, not a realistic one) UPDATE: Added Karley Scott Collins for Denna
She is incredibly frustrating in this season and I've never been a fan of her character but this season was also featured the ONLY two times I've ever felt empathy for her character at all because Blake Lively actually emoted a little. When Carter leaves (was really surprised that I enjoyed them as a couple, he seemed like Serena's Chuck I guess?) and she's crying a little and asking him to stay I actually felt really bad for her. Again I think this had more to do with Blake Lively actually looking upset instead of just bored and her voice breaks a little, it was just a really well done scene. The second time was when she is sure her father hasn't left and is in the lobby, when Dan finds her she's sitting looking so small and sad, just like a little kid. I think it is the first and only scene I actually teared up for Serena, and the only time I understood why Serena is the way she is. Leighton Meester seems to have fun with Blair, and it makes it easy to empathize with someone who hurts and loves with such force (for me anyway) but with Serena all of her backstory is exposition, she tells it in conversations with other characters in such a bored way it's hard to ever really understand her. The scene where she realizes her father has abandoned her again actually breaks my heart, and you can see she's just a little girl who expects every man to abandon her the second she trusts them. It really made me realize that although she annoys the shit out of me, although she's selfish and illogical, she is flaky because I honestly feel like she doesn't trust anyone and I can't say I blame her for that. Anyway, I could go on a whole different rant about how fucking annoying she is in the 3rd season (which she is) but I think I'll save that for discussion in comments or another post. For now I'll let Serena have her moment where I don't completely despise her.
