The Real World: Blow by Blow

real-world-austin.jpgI was non-plussed by the whole deal, honestly. Never drove by the house trying to get a look. Never hung out at some ass bar to witness their underaged shenanigans. Didn’t read the inordinant fawning coverage in the Statesman. Yet here I was – someone who hadn’t watched an entire season of the Real World since Puck was pissing in everyone’s Cheerios – glued to the premiere of Real World Austin. I have to admit, it was better than I expected …

9:02 Man, they sure make Austin look pretty. I mean, “purty.”

9:04 Mt. Bonnell, Auditorium Shores, the Capitol … all nice, iconic meeting spots.

9:12 Wow, that warehouse has some crazy ugliness going on inside. Glad I didn’t rush down to the post-show garage sale to buy some used retro-chic crap. And just think of the stains … *shudder*

9:15 Pretty stereotypes all in a row. In a hot tub. “We’re best friends!!!” Uh huh …

9:20 I remember when it used to rain here, and I vaguely remember complaining about it a lot. Stupid! [runs away awkwardly]

9:28 Ass flashes are a classy way to introduce yourself. Whoever jumps Melinda first better be wearing a brick wall for protection.

9:34 Drinking, stupidity, macking. Wash, rinse, repeat. Drifting off …

9:47 Whoa!!! That dude just CLOCKED Danny! I am now officially interested in this show.

9:49 I’m not sure what looks worse; the belligerent 6th St. drunks, Danny’s humiliating shiner, or the ineffective APD cameo.

9:56 A broken cheekbone is definitely more reality than I expected from this MTV pimp-fest.

All that, and an arrest in the next episode? I may end up watching, just to see whether its the cast or the locals who embarrass themselves more.

    Dude, did the guy who busted his cheekbone get arrested for assault? That was pretty jacked up.

    I’m sure that various Real World forums are about as reliable as a Michael Jackson witness, but I saw some talk that the attacker was identified and arrested because he signed a release with the MTV crew. Sounds pretty unlikely, but then again cold-cocking someone in front of rolling cameras is pretty f’ing stupid to begin with.

    Conspiracy theory o’ the day: MTV actually paid the guy to smack Danny as an homage to Network, but with a pretty boy target instead of old dude Peter Finch.

    I saw some of the episode last night. Watching a bunch of pretty boy/girl, drunken, out-of-town morons didn’t hold my interest for long.

    It is interesting to see how they weave together the locations. I think the Frost Bank building is going to become the image that those who only experience Austin through the show will associate with us. They showed it more times than I could count. I wonder how much local music will be incorporated.

    The biggest question I have is how the hell do you find enough people to get into a fight on a weeknight on Sixth Street in the winter?

    Apparently, the did arrest someone for assault stemming from the opening show incident.

    I used to have sex with Melinda in high school. I took her virginity. She was the biggest freak i’ve ever been with. She used to try to lick my asshole all the time, it made her so wet. Also, i went balls deep in her ass anytime i wanted to. She would be doing her homework while i fucked her ass. Literally doing math while i was tearing her ass up. I really want to get in contact with her again cuz that was some nice pussy.
