Fighting The Frizzies

Sometimes I think I'm the only female in the world who found the show occasionally funny, but dumb and nauseating most of the time.

Keep the faith, I've talked to a number of intelligent women who considered it tripe. In fact, the real question is, did any smart women ever like it?

/I think there is an inverse relationship between how independant a woman really is, and how much she has to go out of her way to make persistent and obnoxious demonstrations of it.

Gap's just looking for something new. I said it once before but it bears repeating.
 
2005-03-21 01:51:23 PM
SJP would have been a better choice for Banana Republic, Gap's older sister.

I think Gap is having an identity crisis. They want to be "cool" for the teens yet have options for the 20-30ish working crowd. Can't have it both ways though.

We 30+ gals generally (hopefully) know better than wearing the super ultra low-rise show me your pubes fit jeans.

Thread needed more hot SJP pics...

Regardless of how Sarah Jessica Parker looks - 'cause, actually, she looks pretty good in the GAP ad in the article, considering the GAP merchandise dreck she's wearing - I think SJP displayed exactly why she is not a relevant spokesperson/model for Gap by her agent's comment, "Joss is not only a teenager, she's also a virtual unknown."

If you think Joss Stone is an unknown, perhaps you're too old to be in touch and/or relevant to the demographic to whom GAP sells their merchandise, non?

SJP is cute, she's a nice looking MILF but what gets me is that I remember Bill Hicks had a rant about people, famous people actually, who shill for products even after they become wealthy.

Not that I care, she can do whatever the hell she wants, but famous people who feel the need to become corporate spokespersons for consumer goods always reminds me of good Ol' Bill.

/Relentless is teh awesomest.

Wow...Joss Stone's b-day is April 11? Another singer who shares my birthday. My lucky day, I guess....

You should find a picture of "Mitch" now - he aged very well.

Thanks for your support--it is much appreciated.

But please don't tell me that Margaret Thatcher ever wore a camo print bikini. I don't need that image in my head. Ever.

Someone needs to post up the sharp knees pictures fat guy thingie.

I thought I was the only one who thought she was not good looking. Horse faced fugly. Would not hit.

"...who said he saw Ferris pass out at 31 flavors last night...."

Joss Stone= the hotness. not overly a fan of her bland white girl soul, but she does have pipes. Hopefully she'll grow into that nicely.

SJP= disgruntled older woman replaced by a younger, more attractive woman. Not unlike many a divorcee, hmmm ?

Kristy Swanson= ultimate hotness

"My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend saw this guy who knows a kid who's going with a girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious."

"Thank you, Simone."

"No problem whatsoever!"

And all from memory.

Teenaged SJP - Gawky and ugly

20 Something SJP - Just plain ugly

Middle aged SJP - Haggard and ugly

No amount of media hype will ever convince me that SJP is now or was ever "beautiful".

Looks like they need to change the song to "I enjoyed being a girl".

JOSS Stone???

I hope this isn't her real name. Why would a white couple name their kid after a statue of a Chinese deity?

What would rather use those brain cells for?

Being able to calculate the effective interest rate on your adjustable rate mortgage is overrated, I say.

SJP was very hot. Now she's some kind of half-starved rake beast. When will these hot semi-aging Hollywood chicks realize that when they lose 10-20 pounds from an already too-skinny body that they look like half-baked shiat?

What a waste...
 
2005-03-21 03:11:54 PM
Joss Stone? Feh.

IMHO, a better choice for Gap woulda been:

See, Sex and The City programs women to think that they may be rich, succesful and have great friends, but if they don't have a date on Saturday night, they're a total loser regardless.

See that episode where that Cynthia Nixon broad was eating cake out of the trash? I am so glad I broke up with the girlfriend who insisted I watch that with her, every week.

(Anyone else here old enough to remember when the Gap was where you went to get cheap school clothes and 2-for-15 bucks jeans? That was back when I was in junior high, and the slogan was "Fall into the Gap," and their primary competitor was Miller's Outpost.)

Ahhh, I remember. When the price of their jeans shot up to $50, I was shocked. "The GAP? Selling $50 jeans? WTF???"

I will now explain GAP's reasoning:

SJP, old and busted, Joss Stone, new hotness.

SJP looked pretty good in that Bruce Willis movie...

I assumed "Joss Stone" was a guy. But then I saw the pics.

Clearly, not.

Don't forget the shoes! If you don't have Manolos or lust after them, and if you can't get yourself into thousands of dollars of credit card debt to chase after fashion, you are SO behind the times.

I could go on and on about how it pisses me off that more girls strive to be thin, self-obsessed sex columnists who squeal over heels and try to out-societize one another than strive to be, oh, I don't know, articulate, loyal, genuinely funny, self-aware but not -obsessed, and comfortable with themselves; but then I'd look like an old fart who takes the tee-vee too seriously.

But:

"Carrie Bradshaw" loves expensive shoes, maxes out her credit cards, writes about her navel lint and is miserable without a man.

I quote "Aqua Teens" and "The Simpsons," love purses of all prices, pay off my credit cards every month, am (told I am) funny, and occasionally moon people when I'm drunk.

Who would you prefer to have at your next party? Or in the cubicle next to you? Or at your book club? Or behind you in line at a restaraunt?

(silence)

Oh. Kristy Swanson. Yeah, I can understand that.

Gaa! my eyes!

Bad Canesays!

I, my 40+y/o gf and my 22 y/o son were all complaining about that commercial last night. It is just the wrong person. Oh, and sjp is ugly. Has nothing to do with how old she is. She is just has unappealing features.

What bugs me the most is how Sex and the City became a barometer for how single women in their thirties behave and/or are supposed to behave.

Fark, yes! I swear, my girlfriend thinks she is the Carrie character in Sex in the City. If she compares our "relationship" to one of the ones in that farking show one more time, I swear... It's a goddamn T.V. show!!! It's not real life! They write it that way to provoke an emotional response from you!

/Fark that show. I hate it.
 
2005-03-21 04:21:47 PM
All the guys who claim they wouldnt hit (insert whatever actress, model, etc. is in question) should have to post a picture of the woman they ARE currently hitting, so we can all bask in what true beauty must be.

I hate Sarah Jessica Parker... or at least her character on that often imbecilic show. farking superficial, shallow, fake personality, dumb-ass hag.

I don't find her physically attractive right off the bat... but throw in the attributes of her character on that show, and she literally makes me sick.

The women on that show actually generally suck. Kim Catrall's character is OK, but a little too slutty and fake. Kristin Davis is physically attractive (to me)... but her character is too neurotic and stupid/strange at times. Cynthia Nixon's character seems to be the least biatchy, and the most real... and she's pretty good looking... but she spends too much farking time complaining.

Although no-one can outpace that biatching biatch of a lead actress hell-biatch.

Transferring her into a khaki commercial for Gap is a slap in the face to those of us who took her character seriously.

Complete idiots, you mean?

Did I say Samoan, I mean Simone....errr Sloane.

She's lesbian? Oh, well no wonder she didn't marry Ferris.

Well, at least he's probably still not a virgin like Cameron Frye.
