Beauties of Brighton Beach.
Love these ladies!
Johnny's hat and shoes are all kinds of WIN.

Pardon me. I'm still wiping off stray bits of ewwwwww from the Festival of Dapperosity that was yesterday, thanks to a "writer" (and I could not use the term more loosely, in the same way one might laughingly suggest that Sarah Palin is "qualified to run for office") who shall remain nameless but whose legacy of
lazy-and-just-plain-wrong snark in place of actual journalistic inquiry and integrity shall forever live in infamy and serve as a stark reminder that really, NY Magazine will just hire anybody these days. Except fact-checkers.

On the bright side, after the initial shock wore off of having something so disappointing as that article appear at the same time as such thoughtful and thought-provoking new Johnny quotes, simply astonishing new photos of Johnny by Cass Bird, plus the new Sun Valley and Lake Placid photos posted by Leah Adams--two goddesses among photographers--our vomit-laden reactions gave way to glittery glee and a Twitter hashtag-fest the likes of which I have not seen since #dapperisthenewbitchslap (still an all-time favorite) debuted.

Here's just a sample:

(Loved Johnny's tweet! This writer could not take herself more seriously, and in less than 140 characters, her smugly self-important "tour de force" piece is reduced to ... a "funny interview.")





#guuuurrrrllll I'm typing in my pyjamas #againstwhichmystomachstrains

I am of course in shortalls #againstwhichmystomachstrains #guuuurrrrllll

don't forget to take pictures, so you can do something strange, like put them in frames and hang them in your home #deviant

I only have pictures of complete strangers in my home, ppl I've never met in places I've never been with them. #dontyou #WTF

#Guuuuurrrrrlllll Tearing myself away from #Grindr just long enuff to get my #tattyterryrobe

#tattyterryrobe #Ihaveoneofthosetoo

#GettinMyGrindrOnWithMyGlueGunAndPinkChiffon #DontAsk

So. Please allow me to adjust my tatty terry robe (like she doesn't have one at her house #bitchplease), load up my hot-glue gun and my pink chiffon in preparation for making an effigy of #ThatNamelessWriter, assemble some photo collages of absolutely no one I've ever met so I can get the NYMag seal of approval in home decorating, and then let's move on to a little spectacular something that got overlooked in all the
#f*ckIsteppedindogshitAGAINanditsnameisWTFNYMag, specifically this:

Yes, it's Johnny's Saturday night gymnastics commentary from Universal Sports! #wedgies

In addition, Nastia Liukin interviewed him before the women's events while he was getting ready:

Wonderful! #themuscles #IEvenSmelledLikeAManAfterJustWatchingIt

And finally of course there's this, because that kick had to be gif'ed (#theshoes!):

There. All better. Between this stuff and #GettinMyGrindr GrooveOnInMyTattyTerryRobe, I've almost forgotten all about that funny little interview. Now I'm going to go order me some Leah Adams photos so I can make photo collages to send to #WhatsHerName. Because apparently she thinks it's weird to have photos in your home of you with your friends and family. So these would be perfect for her: Collages of Johnny Weir, someone she's never met.

LOL! Good job! You're so funny woman! I did't neglect those videos, I just didn't put any funny commentary along with them, lol!

Mimi said...

So so funny MM!!! I can always count on you and your hilarity to start my day! ♥ you so!!!!

Ninja Girl said...

Sadly I missed this least dapper of epic hashtag ho-down, so thank you thank you for posting the VIPs! Truly making something beautiful (or atleast extremely amusing) out of something ugly. You and the Twingles are a testament to Johnny's spirit.

Yesterday I was disgusted and depressed by #WhatsHerName's article. Today you made out of such ugly and idiocy something funniest with glitter. You are a genius, Binky! Thanks so much!!

You are my hero ♥ I thought it was Johnny, but you certainly took that title today! :)


Are just some of my personnals xD.

Debora Walsh said...

Another great post Binky! Laughter is truly the best medicine...

I love that the hashtags assembled present a more cohesive "interview" than anything NY Mag managed to muster...
