Ode to Kenley Collins

Inspired by last night’s episode of Project Runway

 

Sung to the tune of “Brandy” by Looking Glass

There’s a girl, in this harbor town
and she works, stitching clothes and gowns.
They say, “Kenley, don’tcha whine and frown”
She makes them a bubble skirt.
The tailors say “Kenley, you’re a fine girl
What a good designer you would be
But your voice makes Nina Garcia
Leave the set.”

(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)

Kenley, does her Bettie Page
Jet black hair, the 1940s rage.
Silk flower, pinned up in her hair
And blood red lipstick, too.

He left, on a summer’s day
In a tugboat, going far away
He made it clear, he couldn’t stay
No harbor was his home.”

Confession: I found these lyrics – unaccredited – on some fan board earlier todayand changed them up a bit! If you are the original writer let me know and I’ll give you props!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chris, You're Out!

Chris March

Chris March: I Miss Him Already

I can’t say I wasn’t heartbroken at the outcome of last night’s Project Runway, when Chris March got eliminated over Rami Kashou. No one is denying that Rami is talented (if a bit of a one-note) and hot and everything, but he’s also kind of an asshole. And mean people suck. So I was really rooting for Chris to make it to Fashion Week at Bryant Park along with Christian and Jillian. Sadness. Next week’s finale is probably not going to spew forth a whole lot of surprises though, because I think Christian pretty much has this competition in the bag. We’ll see.

This Man is Not Sexy

Bringing Sexy Back…Not!
Tell me its not true: Matt Damon Voted Sexiest Man Alive.

Uh, Matt Damon? Seriously? Um, I think not. Matt Damon is gross. I can think of at least ten guys I know who are hotter and sexier than Matt Damon.

This American Life: Another Kind of Reality


Ira Glass Hosts the Best Show on TV: This American Life

I take lot of heat for being such a shameless, diehard fan of reality TV shows like The Amazing Race, Survivor, American Idol and all those embarrassingly addictive programs on Bravo such as Project Runway, Top Chef and Top Design. Clothes, food, home décor: It’s like there is a reality show specifically geared to feed each of my secret obsessions! Hurray for digital cable!

I guess it follows then that I also love to watch a good documentary and often prefer that genre of film to the garden variety comedy or action/thriller. I recently joined Netlflix and you’ll find my queue is loaded with documentary selections like The Nomi Song — which was just awesome — and this cool movie about the guy who invented the Theramin and ended up getting kidnapped by the KGB. That’s a more convoluted and compelling storyline than any fiction plot you could dream up! So I was particularly thrilled out of my mind to discover that the radio show, This American Life has been translated for television.
