I confess!  I confess!  I watched the two-hour premiere Thursday night, and I don't think my jaw ever left the floor--except when I was rolling on it in hysterics.  This show has truly become my guiltiest pleasure--which, I guess, only proves what an innocent wuss I am.  

"Jersey Shore" is reality TV taken to a whole 'nother dimension.  It's "Real Houswives of New Jersey" on steroids.    

P.S.  (Gay) Brian Moylan's analysis of the show on Gawker is priceless.  I have to agree that the show is "the most important anthropological study of its day [!!!]":

I don't think he was actually a cast member.  Just some random guy in a bar that she managed to piss off.

One of the things that made this incident even more comical & surreal was the fact that after that guy sucker punched her, she just got right back up & kept on talking.  I've seen men take punches like that & get knocked the fuck out.  But not this bitch.  She was back on her feet & ready to go in a matter of seconds.  I'm starting to wonder if all that orange shit they put on their skin is actually giving them super powers.  Like some kind of radioactive fucking mutants.

By boyfriend is the exact same way.  He's always watching My Super Sweet 16, Teen Cribs, Bully Beatdown, Fantasy Factory, Nitro Circus, Parental Control, etc.  He also loves those shitty shows that come on TLC like Orange County Choppers, Little People, Big World, John & Kate, & of course, 18 & counting.  I hate all of those fucking shows, but I think that 18 kids & counting is the one that I absolutely, positively despise.  I think all of those Duggar morons have a combined IQ of about 80.  And they just keep breeding & breeding.  And here my boyfriend & I have tried to be responsible & wait all these years to have kids, & then we get hit with his HIV diagnoses, which will make having children all the more difficult.  But these breeders just keep going at it.  I hated them before his positive diagnoses because I thought they were a drain on society simply by causing more problems with overpopulation, gobbling up 1000 times more natural resources than the average family & making the gene pool shallower, hence causing the future to become a world much like the one seen in the film Idiocracy, but now that I know it's going to be even more difficult for us to having kids watching those motherfuckers prance around & shoot out babies like her vagina was a goddamn slip-n-slide makes my want to hold them all underwater until they stop twitching.

And yes, I am slightly bitter.  I am not afraid to admit it.

   Never heard a straight person refer to other straight people as breeders..  aren't you the same one who said they are no straight guys with HIV? 

shoot out babies like her vagina was a goddamn slip-n-slide makes my want to hold them all underwater until they stop twitching.

And yes, I am slightly bitter.  I am not afraid to admit it.

  Hmmm...  and perhaps motherhood is not suited for you.  Don't hear too many women who wish to be mothers joke about holding someone else's kids under the water until they stop twitching.

  But good luck with that anyways...

Nope, I never said anything about there being no straight guys with HIV.  I don't know who did, but I even made a comment in the "HIV Gift Givers" thread that I actually disagreed with that, being as my straight boyfriend contracted HIV from unprotected heterosexual sex.  The impression that I've gotten from reading that thread was that that whole theory is something that has been debated on these boards for quite some time, & was taking place well before I ever started posting.

And I don't call all straight people "breeders", just the ones who tend to have child after child after child after child.  And I would never seriously kill anyone's children, regardless of how much they got on my nerves ;).  The "them" I was talking about holding underwater were the adults having all the children, not the children themselves.  I think the reason I get so pissed when I see people having children like that is because I've worked in the social services/government assistance field for years (specifically rental assistance), & I see all these people who can't even take care of themselves have child after child after child.  And it gets to me sometimes knowing that my tax dollars are helping to pay for those children when I can't even afford to have any of my own.  I just get sick of seeing 19 year old girls who already have 3 children & another one on the way who don't want to work & just let their kids run wild.  I see it every single day.  I don't know how many times I have to get on tenants for letting their children play in the street unattended & disturb other tenants while at the same time managing to do some property damage as well.  It's nothing personal against their children.  The kids are essentially fending for themselves while mommy & daddy stay inside & scream at each other until someone finally calls the cops.

So yeah, I get upset when I see people reproducing like feral cats.  I love my nephews & my friend's children, & I would never seriously want to hold any child underwater "until they stop twitching", although there are some adults that I would love to kick in the nuts & render them unable to reproduce.  And I realize that it's no excuse, but I've been pretty pissed at the world since my b/f got his positive diagnoses last month.  Add that to the fact that I already have a morbid, inappropriate sense of humor, & from time to time I will spew out a really nasty comment that's not really intended to be taken seriously.

Either way, lighten up dude.  There's no need to take everything someone says seriously & literally.  I guess sarcasm just doesn't translate as well in writing as it does verbally.

I keep hearing about these heads and their constant use of the word "Guido" and "Guidette."  Supposedly the show is quite offensive.

I have to say though that none of these fellas looks very hot (just my opinion).

Had not seen so much buzz around a sleazy show in a good while.  Even Wanda had to mention them on her show last week.

  I actually find it pretty entertaining.  That one guy with the Cadillac tattoo and the hair gell/cement is probably one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen...

  I always thought guido was a highly derogatory term used to describe someone who is stupid and Italian.  They say they're guidos, so atleast they're honest.

Thanks to a certain person in that place 90 miles to the south, I think it's called Philadelphia, though at the current time it may be closed, I don't know for certain. :D but I watched "Jersey Shore."  It was so over the top and I missed some of it but I acturally went back for the second of the back to back episodes yesterday.  I am now scared for my mental heatlh.

Anyway just today one of New York's sensationalist tabloids "reported" that Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, the second from the left in Philly's picture and the one I think is the best looking, what with the toned abs already, not that I've noticed at all  ;) reportedly commands thousands of dollars for nightclub appearances as a scantily clad exotic dancer at bachelorette parties, can you imagine!  I say why can't a young boy work his way thorugh med school already.

Anwyay if you can believe it he used to do it for alot less before the reality TV show become a hit, thanks to youse trashy mudder f***ers who watch this f***ing gahbage, you lookin' at me mudder fu***er!?!

I know where you live  ;)

My partner says if you followed Jerry Springer's audience home you'd have Jersey Shore. He says the Real Housewives of Orange County is more entertaining because "these spoiled beotches who thought they were rich have been spanked by the housing market and are losing their homes, getting divorces and realizing the world doesn't orbit their self-absorbed asses."

Well, don't get too used to this show, I heard MTV-networks is under a lot of pressure to canceled it ,due to several complaints by a lot of viewers who say the show pro most's 'derogatory ethnic stereotypes' and is 'wildly offensive'.  ::)

Never seen the show (probably never will) but the 3rd guy on the right in the first post prompts this query:

What the frock is it with all these guys with Ed Grimley hairdos? 



I've seen dozens of mostly younger men this year with their hair moussed up into a lateral point from front to back.  Like a mohawk but they forgot to shave the rest off.   Is it just me or does anyone else think they look goofy?

Re: (Ed Grimley hair) Re: Guilty Pleasure: Jersey Shore
« Reply #40 on: January 01, 2010, 04:34:46 PM »
What the frock is it with all these guys with Ed Grimley hairdos? 

I've seen dozens of mostly younger men this year with their hair moussed up into a lateral point from front to back.  Like a mohawk but they forgot to shave the rest off.   Is it just me or does anyone else think they look goofy?

The poindexter was around in th eighties but it was bigger.  La Roux worked it recently - she looks very Haircut 100.

It's been back and has been among the 5 basic styles for over 5 years for European boys - gay or straight.  There's the emo, the easy buzzed or shaved head, the long bangs "nice-boy" bed-head look (think zac efron last year), the asymmetrical bed head grungy look (see any Gus Van Zant movie), and the ed grimley/poindexter.  They can do the oindexter with just the cut, it doesn't have to slicked with gel, even.  (There are always also the white rasta boys. But only a few in each university now.)

Straight boys have the ed grimley as much as gay boys. It's considered a bit depassť, but it's effective for gays because it evokes a YOUNG and somehow sexy geekiness. I don't know how it ended up in Guido land.

In my not so humble opinion, no guy over college age should have any of these youth cuts except the buzz and perhaps the grungy thing (which works until 30). 

There are TONS of European MEN who do NOT act/accept their age and insist well until their 30's on "young" clothes - skaker looks etc.  Were not talking "youthful" and stylish - we're talking 30 somethings shopping in the teen department, basically. 

The gay chats here are filled with these guys. They even write the slangy language of kids - it's dreadful. 

The Ed Grimley is basically a prepubescent look, (its a reverse Denis the Menace). 

Guido's should have classic 80's or 70's styles.  Travolta had two great looks in the 70's, perfect feathered "natural" (kind of a male farah fawcet), or any number of tight, slick, perfect barbershop cuts. 

These guido's have NOTHING on Travolta. 

I dated an Italian architect in the 80's he had perfect hair, teeth, abs, car, apartment, mother, etc.

Have you ever played with a can of aerosol Hair Net and a lighter???  Flame thrower for a fraction of the cost of a real one.  My mother was often mystified when her can was nearly empty until she caught us one night in the back yard... 

Unroll a pad of steel wool and stretch it horizontally and length-wise.  Light it at the bottom.  The poor child's sparklers.

When youth are deprived of real fireworks they must be resourceful.  However, I recommend against playing with mop strings because if you leave one lit and a few hours later your mother finds a burned black clump at the end of the handle it can get pretty ugly... especially since you left it hanging in the garage near 100 other flammable objects.

Ok I downloaded it and watched 4 episodes. How many have there been?

1) Remember in the first 10 minutes it shows that these people are not all from NJ, but are all guidos.

2) Ronnie is cute. Actually all 4 guys have their appeal, no?

3) The Situation is so cocky. He has his charm, based on too much ego sometimes but hey.

4) The ladies get points for NOT being anorexic!  

5) I like the way the MTV set designers condescended to vulgar tastes but also made it rather luxurious. Looks like a fun beach house for ironic ivy league preppies, too!

6) I guess it holds my interest to figure out what is scripted and what is behind the makeup and grooming. I can feel the reelness of some of these people and its creepy that MTV stamps down a falsness on top of it.

I think they are mostly naive (about life), spoiled, and good at heart.

I think Michael K. from Dlisted.com described it best:

http://www.dlisted.com/node/35483

Michael Cera, who normally looks like a middle-aged lesbian high school English teacher with the third largest stamp collection in Northampton, MA, got a Guido makeover courtesy of Jersey Shore's Pauly D!

Unfortunately, Michael doesn't look like something you'd find rolling out of Karma Club at 4am. Michael looks more like a middle-aged lesbian high school English teacher with the third largest stamp collection in Northampton, MA who tried to be a hybrid of Jon & Kate for Halloween but failed miserably.

   Is that the redneck guy?  I believe he said he was a farmer, man I never figured them as your type Phyllicia.  Tonight's show was a good one though.  Ronnie obviously has a mean left hook, I thought he killed that guy he knocked out tonight.  What about sister stalker that Pauly picked up?  I liked the little haterade recipe The Situation came up with for the lame guy Vinny.

   In case anyone missed it here's the recipe :

   parmesean cheese
   milk
   pickle juice

   Mix the ingredients in a bowl and place under the haters bed.  They will know it's there within a few days.

Tonight had two episodes and I only saw the second one because I was watching the season premiere of Project runGay on Lifetime, and I think Snickers met Keith in the first episode.  Keith only showed up briefly in the 2nd one, but he was perfectly proportioned and a keeper in the face from what I saw.  I'd never discriminate against a patriotic redneck, and I definitely sensed that he was not a real guido as he'd didn't have spiked hair or a tanning salon effect.

Oh, and Haterade also contains Caesar salad dressing.

They don't have caller ID on them though, hence why Vinny got stuck on the phone with Paulie's stalker chick.  This might create problems for a playa like you when a grenade calls.

I bet you can buy some contraption at Radio Shack to solve this.  I just dug out this ancient black rotary phone that dates from the late 1940's or so, and that I had totally re-wired when I was in college in the late 80's, and it still works so I plugged it into my new Comcast phone/modem that I got today, but yeah I can't see caller ID.  Still, I bet there's even some software floating around that I could get to work in that regards, so I'll research it.

  I know Snooki was lacking a bit in the common sense department, but she really amazed me after Ronnie got put in the slammer for knocking that guy out.  As Sammi was distrauntly heading upstairs to sleep alone Snooki tried to assist by asking , "Should I call 911?".  So I gathered that Snooki is under the impression that you can call 911 to get someone bailed out...  kinda of funny.

MTV needs to pay them more than that. This is their first show in a good while to get as much attention (and actual viewers). They have exploited kids for a zillion seasons of "Road Rules," "The Real World," and every other cheaply produced reality show that they have broadcasted.

The New York Post today stated that MTV was getting fed up with the cast demanding more and more money and they might just replace them all, and that they had sent out employees to bars up and down the Shore looking for new cast members. 

As much as I loved many of the cast members, it's not going to be all that difficult to find tons of replacements.  They're everywhere in the northeast.  Hell, you could probably recruit them all in five minutes by just going to Staten Island.

My wife was telling me about this earlier.  She said it was DJ Paulie (lol) and The Situation who were holding out for more money.  IMO they should hold out.  My wife watches some other MTV reality show, I think the Hills, and they make quite a bit more evidentally.  I think they should pay them more, the show was ranked high in the ratings.   MTV says they are sticking to the $10,000 offer and if they have to, will replace the cast members who are holding out.

Won't that be a bummer??

I love the challenges just as much. By "cheaply" I meant that they don't have to invest much in these productions (and many of the earlier seasons did not pay anything to their cast members; apparently being on the show was enough).  I used to love TRW back in the early 90s (especially the first season with my girl Heather B. and Eric Neiss). The Miami season was dreadful though.

If they replace "The Situation" I'll be fine with the decision. Just don't take away my Ronnie or Snooki.

If they replace "The Situation" I'll be fine with the decision. Just don't take away my Ronnie or Snooki.

They should replace him with me.  My abs are nearly as nice, they could call me The Wastation. ;)

The New York Post today stated that MTV was getting fed up with the cast demanding more and more money and they might just replace them all, and that they had sent out employees to bars up and down the Shore looking for new cast members. 

As much as I loved many of the cast members, it's not going to be all that difficult to find tons of replacements.  They're everywhere in the northeast.  Hell, you could probably recruit them all in five minutes by just going to Staten Island.
I am totally going to ramp up my training sessions at the gym so I can be on Season 2!  Ronnie, I'm comin' for ya!

    Before the Shore was only 30 minutes long.  Must not have been up to a whole lot I guess, not a lot of time divided amongst 8 people if you count the one who lost her housing because she didn't want to fold shirts.

I thought for "shore"  ;D they would have talked about more intersting things.  Well, they were complaining about how they wanted more then the $10,000 an episode but I guess they realized they are nobodys and could not do any better.  Good for MTV to stand up to them and say anymore and no deal.  They all sucked it up and took it.  Lets go season 2!

Evidently MTV wants to get a 2nd season filmed so that it airs this coming summer, as that would be more seasonally appropriate.  But to do so they need a warm weather location to film it right now, thus ruling out the shore in NJ.  Of course this is all completely stupid considering what the concept and name of the show is.

That is so stupid.  Here is y thought.  Technically they were only there for a month.  Why not start filming immediately following the start of summer and film a week or two ahead of schedule like all the other reality shows.  Doesn't that make more sense?

It's strange seeing the terms "reality shows" and "make more sense" in the same post. I thought they'd be mutually exclusive.

Child please. Can't say that I agree. A few guidos maybe. Mainly a bunch of cha-cha muscle heads and ganXta wannabes. The local yellow press (AKA The New Times) recently reported on how South Beach queens --we don't use SoBe here :)-- have been [supposedly] fleeing to Ft. Lauderdale/Wilton Manors due to the changes in demographics and an increase in hate crimes.

As much as I love me some Ronnie and Snooki I am not too fond of bringing more rubbish down here.   

On a separate note my sis tells me that The Situation is planning to release a fragrance? Says she heard it on the local radio.

You're in denial. :)

Most of the time when I was going to Miami annually from the early-90s until around 2003 it was for Winter Music Conference, and at least for that event there was a massive influx of guidos after 2000.  Actually come to think of it I went to a wedding at the Eden Roc in 1998 and my plane was full of them, but it was Memorial Day weekend too.

The first time I went to South Beach in 1990 (you were probably still on the swing set) it was either elderly Jews or fashion models there.  That was about it.

I think they should go to Rimini on the Adriatic in Italy. It's kind of the "Jersey Shore" of Italy. Gorgeous and tacky all together.
Then as a side story they can have these "Italian" Americans confront real Italian culture and Italian young people like -- or unlike -- themselves.

Maybe they could get Martin Scorsese to direct a guest episode. Or Sophia Coppola.  Then the whole thing could be double shot - for Jersey Shore MTV, and for some fashion magazine.  Bruce Weber photos.

Well that's what I would do if I were MTV program director.  Then if you did one or two really amazing episodes, it would add an edgey documentary note to the brew, and maybe head toward the Emmy and some way out of the tele-reality hole we are in. 

The Situation has some cocky charm - think a "punched in the face" Marky Mark.  

I hope they have good agents and don't end up all screwed up like Jon Gosselin.

Update on the Situation's new fragrance... it is called "Sitch." According to EW it smells like gym, tanning, laundry, and desperation.

Well sorta but Rimini isn't Capri or Sardinia, isn't very chic for Italians, so its not Beverly Hills, its gorgeous and party party like Ibiza.

If we want to go the Beverly Hills route we can send them to Martha's Vineyard but there's not much to amuse them there, or Saint Tropez.  Or as proposed, the Hamptons. I think them in the Hamptons would be dreadful.  Hamptoms people are not generous.

Cannes is pretty flashy and there is plenty of trouble to get into in bigger beach cities. I think they would all be fun together at the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Monte Carlo. That's the perfect mix of high and low.  These Jersey Girls are quite NASCAR but they are guido so they appreciate Italian brands. I'd like to see them get VIP access for some things and get snubbed by the hip hop yacht crowd. The boys would feel emasculated by all the rich testosterone on display.  They could get dissed by the hip hop crowd for being low rent celebrities.  The billionaires (arabs, euros) all look down on the hip hop and hollywood "yachts" because they are too small or rented, and the black stars aren't billionaires!  

Eternal pecking order.

I always found the Hamptons crowd very generous, even to the point of having a vintage Rolls Royce convertible at my disposal one weekend.  But they would definitely shun the Jersey Shore crowd.  I can't recall ever seeing any guidos out there at all, and I used to go out to East Hampton several times a year for about a decade.  Always good times, and the wealthy queens I knew would never let me spend a cent.

Is this an MTV reality TV program?   Duh... 

Is The Real World [sic] still on the air?  Yesterday while registering people and dogs at the Krewe of Barkus  parade I heard several references from the stage about MTV & The Real World but luckily my booth was well concealed so I never saw any of the dweebs. 

In the Anals of TV history MTV will be recognized as the originator of "reality TV (unless you count "Queen for a Day" in the 60s...)"  and duly vilified for crimes against humanity.
