...of episodes, that is. No new Project Runway until 2008, which is giving me serious withdrawal pains. Thank God for reruns, and for the fine feathered forum member who tipped us to Jay McCarroll's Project Runway blog for Elle. The lack of caps and overly casual attitude towards apostrophes is somewhat aggravating, but if you can acclimate yourself to it, you'll find that Jay's voice comes right through -- and is bitchy but fair, just like I remember Jay from his time on the show. In one recent entry, he compares Heidi Klum to his high school band director, who smelled like cucumbers; says Christian reminds him of Jerri Blank; and shares how he would have tackled the Tiki challenge: "i personally would have used this opportunity to get back at all of the football players who picked on me in high school. these models be walkin’ down the runway in white spandex bodysuits and hot pink assless chaps with ruffles and crystals and a rainbow flag and a pair of ugg boots and a sheep." Hee. It's the Ugg detail that makes it.
Anyway, it's a great addition to the PR coverage around the blogosphere, much franker than most of the Bravo blogs, although it doesn't begin to fill the void left by the end of Tim's podcasts. BRING BACK TIM'S DAMN PODCASTS!
