this weekend, prior commitments forced me to stay behind in the city while The Gang went up to Lake Winnipesaukee to enjoy the beautiful weekend weather. i told myself that i would be uber-productive, unpacking THE WHOLE apartment, working on the remaining *2* wedding photo albums for the blog, and just genrally kicking some To-Do List ass.
as it turns out, 2 days is just enough time to develop a new reality television addiction. damn the Bravo network, first with QEFSG and now...Blow Out. the not-all-poignant story of an arrogant (but straight) salon owner (Jonathan Antin) trying to open his second salon, in Beverly Hills.
FROM THE BRAVO BIO:
"As a teenager, Antin was inspired to become a stylist by Warren Beatty's role as the sexy, lady-loving George Roundy in the hit film Shampoo. He dropped out of Beverly Hills High to enroll in the Fairfax Beauty Academy, where he quickly landed a job at a trendy Melrose salon. Like Beatty's character, Antin's smoldering good looks and charisma, combined with his unique fashion sense proved irresistible. Within a few years, he claimed the Melrose salon as his own -- garnering a list of celebrity clientele rivaling the best in the business."
my favorite part is hearing Jonathan's various soundbites, like how some days he dresses "Cubano" while others he does the "Rock Star" and sometimes, (sigh), just the plain old "Steve McQueen."
Tuesdays at 9 -- followed by QEFSG -- woo hoo! BKP and i will surely be glued to the set.
