HBO documentary “About Face: Supermodels Then and Now.”
Has anyone seen this? And can you explain Jerry Hall's personality to me? Isabella Rossellini is smart and thoughtful.
Why, what did you think of Jerry? Did you like her or hate her in this?
Loved seeing the middle-age Lisa Taylor. She was stunning in her day.
Didn't think much of Jerry. I was far more interested in what the older supermodels (before the 70s and beyond) had to say. Interesting documentary.
Isabella is nuts.
Did they mention Jean Shrimpton, the first supermodel? (Cause Lisa Fonssagrives doesn't count)
What about Dusty Anderson and Dovima?!
Such a shitty documentary. The Times really tore it a new one. Bad editing. It kept flitting around from subject to subject.
I didn't expect much from a documentary about aging models. Enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. I loved Jerry Hall. I thought she was an eccentric hoot. Worth checking out on demand or with HBO to go.
Jerry was kind of ditzy and exaggerated, big gestures, crazy accent (Texas plus whatever). Weak as a documentary but fun to watch. Paulina had frumpy hair.
Isabella looked very masculine with her short hair and suit.
Jerry Hall shouldn't have moved to London. She's never been accepted there and she would have been much more successful if she'd stayed in the US.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
