WHAT?!
"Look at the doll...how's she feeling?"

Warning: Spoilers and NSFW video. We’ve had some bizarre sexual encounters in our day, but Marnie and Booth’s coupling on last night’s episode of “Girls” was beyond creepy (okay, and hilarious). When Marnie ran into “that smeege of a man” as Hannah called him (I’m stealing that!), Booth took her back to his place to show her his work. He proceeded to lock Marnie into his panic attack-inducing art installation cage where TV screens flickered disturbing images and Duncan Sheik’s “Barely Breathing” played on a loop. Meanwhile he checked his email and had a snack. Seriously, I almost couldn’t watch because I was getting claustrophobic. It was very Willy Wonka when he takes the kids on that crazy boat ride. Not to fret! It got weirder! Booth freed Marnie from his art prison, comforted her and fucked her, reciting a sex script so bizarre, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. I don’t think Marnie did either. Seriously, this exact thing must have happened to one of the writers. It’s just not possible to make this shit up. Keep reading »

“Hannah acts like she has a political issue with [Sandy, the black Republican she is sleeping with], but what she actually has an issue with is him disliking what she does. Because she feels like she should receive universal praise, and the fact that someone’s sleeping with her should also mean that they respect her prose style. … I’ve had one boyfriend who I knew had an active … not dislike, but some issues with what I did. It wasn’t even like he was like, ‘I think you’re pushing a weird agenda.’ He just didn’t think I was that great a writer. It was right when ‘Tiny Furniture’ was coming out, and I didn’t love it. It’s important to me to receive constructive criticism and I don’t want to be with a yes man, but I want to be with somebody who at the very baseline level thinks that I’m talented and takes what I do seriously. I couldn’t be attracted to someone if they made work that I found absurd.”

Lena Dunham explains to New York magazine’s Vulture blog why she cast Donald Glover on “Girls” as a dude Hannah dates briefly before they get into a fight about their differences. It turns out she once had her own Sandy, but he didn’t like her movie “Tiny Furniture,” not her essay. I guess we can assume this means Dunham’s real life BF Jack Antonoff is on board with her work?

Attempting to wrest their laurels on the “Girls” juggernaut, a bunch of reality TV producers have come up with the hideous/genius idea of casting a “real-life” version of the hit HBO show. Reads the producer’s Craigslist pitch:

Ever feel like life in the big frantic city is just too much? Are you a twenty-something young woman seeking fame, fortune, love or even a hookup with potential? How do you get from here to there when you can’t even get a seat on the L train! [Ed Note: Nobody gets a seat on the L train because people on the L train don't know how to ride the subway] Come to a casting call with our Emmy-winning production company and tell us your dreams and woes, your highs and lows, your tales of *** in the city and the outrageous opportunities that have come your way. Is your circle of friends bound together by not just the parties, fights, and brunches but frequent bouts of commiserating over your struggles? It isn’t easy taking the road less travelled [sic], but making it as a writer, designer, entrepreneur, actress/model or glorified dog walker never is! Keep reading »

If I ask you to go away and you don't, that's space rape.

Warning: spoilers ahead! I thought the most controversial moment of last night’s episode of “Girls” would be Hannah’s breakup with Sandy and ensuing discussion about fetishizing each other’s race. Actually, that was really interesting. But then Adam broke into Hannah’s apartment and committed “space rape” and I forgot about the rest of the episode. I went from thinking about Hannah cutting her bangs, to being confronted with all the grey zones of stalking, domestic violence and abuse. I was left not knowing how to feel about Adam, about Hannah, about the whole situation.  Keep reading »

So everybody’s talking about “Girls” and Lena Dunham’s amazing Golden Globes’ win and blah blah blah, voice of a generation. But we want to talk about something else: Lena Dunham’s karaoke choices. Last week, New York magazine interviewed the cast of “Girls” about their favorite karaoke jams. (and karaoke played a major role on last night’s second season debut). Their real-life choices were far from inspiring:

Allison Williams — “It’s a long one, but it’s ‘Faithfully,’ by Journey. It builds, and by the end, everybody’s asleep, so they need a pick-me-up … A lot of the pop songs today are so challenging, I wouldn’t even endeavor to do them.”

Lena Dunham –“I only did karaoke once, and I did ‘Who Will Save Your Soul?’ by Jewel, which is a tough song … it’s hard. Hannah’s would be something off of Jagged Little Pill, by Alanis Morissette. I love her, Hannah loves her. Or Taylor Swift, if you wanted to go modern.”

Jemima Kirke — “I like to sing a little Loretta Lynn. ‘Rose Garden.’ I just sing it good. It’s the only song I can say that I know I can do.”

While we abide by Loretta Lynn, what’s up with Journey? Really? Come on Allison Williams. It sounds like the “Girls” girls could use a little advice from our friend and karaoke columnist Lindsey Weber. I know first hand that Weber is a karaoke aficionado, skilled with a microphone — and with critical song choices. Keep reading »

Soooo, “Girls” is back. Which means lots of watching them make bad decisions so that we don’t have to. Hooray for vicarious learning! As I watched the season two premiere, I had a bunch of thoughts: How come I never get invited to house parties anymore? Am I old? I should do more karaoke. How are these characters managing to make sooo many mistakes with their exes in the span of 30 minutes? Oops! I”ve done many of these myself. Geez, they make it look so fun and quirky!

In real life, we are well aware that messy ex situations are not fun and quirky. Oh no. They are comp-li-cated and emotionally fraught. After the jump, let’s review all the mistakes that Hannah and the gang made so that we can avoid making them in the future. Spoilers ahead, obviously. Keep reading »
