CRITICAL Darling

Panicked, for Critical Darling had nothing — nothing — devastating to impart to you this week (and flabbergasting as a few event announcements can be, she hates for this to be a themeless textual bulletin board), CD has since decided to be careful what she wishes for: Erstwhile Jane founding editor Jane Pratt is now, according to Page Six, “Teamed up `with Phillip Bloch` for a VH1 reality show where they advise unfashionable women on how to run a fashion magazine.” Uugghh, à la Charlie Brown.

Of course, VH1 isn’t the only haven for soul-killing reality shows, and matters are liable to get worse as negotiations betwixt the WGA and AMPTP fell apart once again. For funsies, visit firedoglake.com/wga/index.php/write/compose. I just spammed the producers of 30 Rock, Lost, The Office, and Weeds. Yippee!

For entertainment free of such controversy, drop by Say Sí this Friday, December 14 at 7 p.m. for the On the Verge Youth Film Festival, then surf over to SA-based online community mytoons.com,
whose Bumper Blastoff animation contest info can be found in this week’s Surf’s Up on page 32. (Afterward, set an old copy of Jane on fire. I have extras.) XO.
