Project Runway: Irina is the Winner

I watched the finale for Project Runway. It looks like I was right about Irina being the winner. And it was for the same reasons that I said. Irina has consistently put out gorgeous and well-made outfits. And not to mention, she has made the outfit to each challenge’s specifications. Now, the thing that I don’t get is a lot of other Project Runway fans’ reactions to Irina’s win. In a lot of articles that I read about Irina like these two, one from E! and the other from US Magazine, a good majority of the comments were bashing Irina’s personality based on what was shown on the show, and how she shouldn’t have won because of that. Personally, I have a bone to pick with these comments. While I agree that her attitude could have better, I think that these commenters are forgetting that Project Runway is a designing competition, not a Miss USA Pageant. The judges are not judging the designers on their personalities, with the exceptions of paired challenges; they’re judging the outfits that the designers made. And besides, everybody should know by now that competition/reality shows like Project Runway can be edited so that a person would look bitchy. I’m just saying that just because Irina appeared to be mean on the show, that doesn’t mean that she’s like that in real life. Anyway, you can bitch and moan about how Irina shouldn’t have won or that Carol Hannah should have, etc., but like I said, I think the right person won. And just for clarification, my judgement is just based Irina’s final collection and how she did in the previous challenges.

Lestat & Edward as Byronic Heros

I was looking up Edward Cullen on Wikipedia and I saw that it said that Edward was a Byronic hero. Because of that, I clicked on the link that explained what a Byronic hero was. Anyway, as I was reading the characteristics, it did sounds like Edward As I continued down the website, it mentioned that Lestat from the Vampire Chronicles and the Phantom from the Phantom of the Opera were Byronic heros as well, but I digress with the Phantom. That made me think about how much Lestat and Edward were alike in the sense that they are both Byronic heros. I think that’s the reason why I don’t like either character. I mean, it’s not that I hate them, but it’s just that they’re not my favorites characters from their respective series. Anyway, I think that’s the reason why I don’t like Lestat and Edward is the fact that they’re Byronic heros.

Lestat vs. Edward Pictures

In my search for any Lestat vs. Edward stuff, I found quite a few pictures that made fun of Edward and the Twilight series or making fun of the fact the Twilight series “outshines” the Vampire Chronicles. The one that I found to be the most funny was the one where it showed Edward and Bella together in the first box, and the following three boxes showing Louis, Lestat, and Armand telling their opinions on the series. I found that Lestat’s and Armand’s reactions to be the most funny. Their reactions were classic Lestat and Armand. Anyway, the next one that I thought was funny was the one where Lestat as picking on Edward. I just found those funny. By the way, you can find the originals at this site.

Lestat vs. Edward Smackdown

I was bored recently and was on my computer I don’t know why but I typed Lestat vs. Edward into Google to see what I would get. Anyway, a lot of stuff that popped up were drawings of people making fun of Edward through Lestat’s point of view, and videos and articles asking who would win in a no-holds bar fight. I immediately thought that Lestat would definitely win. I say that because, after looking up their powers as a refresher, while Edward has super strength, super speed, and can read minds, Lestat can do or has all of that, plus so much more. Lestat also has pyrokinesis, the ability to fly, and he’s telekinetic. Plus, he killed an entire wolf pack by himself, albeit with the help of his two mastiff dogs. Anyway, I really think that Lestat would definitely win the fight against Edward, and that’s assuming Lestat doesn’t fall in love with Edward first, which I doubt would actually happen, and that Lestat doesn’t hurt Bella.

Eclipse Chapter 18

I finished reading Eclipse about a month, maybe a month and a half ago. The thing that I found most funny was in chapter 18 when Jacob, when he was in wolf form, came up to Bella and licked her. In that same general area, I also liked when Jacob, again in wolf form, looked like he was smiling. I think the reason why I liked those two parts was because it’s typical of Jacob to be happy-go-lucky. Anyway, I just found those two parts to be funny.

Project Runway: Michael and Nina

I was reading this post about the most recent season of Project Runway on another wordpress blog. Anyway, in the post, it briefly talked about how Michael and Nina haven’t really been on the show as much as they were in previous seasons. You know, after watched season six so far, I have to agree. Michael and Nina haven’t really been on the show that much this season. I can understand why if they weren’t for one or two episodes because they were sick or had a previous commitment. Personally, I think they should have stepped down as regular judges if they were going to miss so much. Because of that, I think it doesn’t really help the designers because it’s not like they’re getting consistent criticisms from people who actually have a background in fashion and who aren’t former models. I mean, it’s not like the designers will be able to improve upon their work if they don’t get feedback. Anyway, I think that Michael and Nina should have stepped down if they weren’t going to be on the show that much.

Is Carol Hannah Pregnant?

After watching the first part of the finale for Project Runway and hearing that Carol Hannah was sick, it made me think. What if Carol Hannah is actually pregnant and is just experiencing morning sickness and whatnots? I mean, it’s entirely possible that she’s pregnant. The way I look at it is that she could have gotten pregnant around two months before she, Irina, and Althea had to come back for Fashion Week. Plus, she could mistake the morning sickness for a stomach virus. I mean, I’ve heard stories where a pregnant woman mistook the morning sickness for a cold or a stomach virus. Anyway, that’s just what I think. I could be totally wrong though.
