One of My Favorite People Gave Us A Shoutout!

The Mike & Judy Show with guest Maura Johnston (whom I LOVE) gave us a shoutout on a recent episode and started dissecting Miss Advised until they rightly realized that no one knew what the fuck they were talking about because no one watched.

Listen here. The relavent portion begins around the 15 min mark. Thanks solidarity cat for point this out.

    Maura’s fabulous! RBD is fabulous! Meeting of minds.

  2. Freeloading Musketeers says:

    That was awesome.

  3. SO NICE says:

    I can’t wait for Donk to tell us how these accomplished hotties are just jealous bullies.

    Also, love the tags on the podcast.

    OT: private beach advice needed!

    My husband & I miraculously will have survived 15 years together next June and would like to go away together to celebrate our anniversary. I’m looking for a private, secluded beach type of thing. Something where we are away from everyone and staff would bring us drinks on the beach. Real Housewives fans, something like when Tamara & Eddie went away and he proposed. Little private huts maybe, but not roughing it. We want amenities galore, but not obscenely galore, as we are saving up to move again. I have back issues, so I don’t want to travel very far.

    If you have any ideas, please pass them on!

    • SO NICE says:

      Marina del Rey is super exclusive! You can even hire a TaskRabbit to bring you drinks, wash dishes, and bring you bouquets they have arranged of flowers they grew themselves.

    • Cowboys & Brayliens says:

      Hapuna Beach Prince.

      Look no further. The beach in those pictures is pretty quiet. Play around on Google maps, you’ll see how secluded the place is. (That brown rock everywhere is a hundred-year-old lava flow.)

    • Albie Quirky says:

      I have gone to your blerg to see where you are (I now know where-ish you are) and what up, fellow experiencer of chronic pain and what-not. Also, I am getting that dog puzzle for all the dogs I know now, because it is amazing. Also, in love with your animal friends and with the bb you care for, who is beyond gorgeous.

      Would Coco Plum Cay in Belize work for you in terms of flight length? Coral Lodge in the San Blas Islands of Panama? I hear good things about various “casitas style” hotels in the Mayan Riviera (Tulum, etc.) but haven’t done those myself.

      • Albie Quirky says:

        Agree that if you can manage the flight length, Hawai’i is really the move.

        • Rosalie says:

          Ah, flight length. The shorter, the better. I am in South Jersey. I will check out what you and C&B suggested! Thanks.

          That dog puzzle is amazing for dogs and cats!

      • helobabe says:

        Belize is a great option for flight times – you could also check out Ambergris Cay and that surrounding area. That Cay is very similar to the Fiji experience – private huts on stilts, etc. I know you can rent the whole island for $10k a night and that’s for 25 people so just for two might actually be reasonable. For something a little cheaper but still nice, the Ritz in Grand Cayman is really great – not so private but lots of amenities, the water is to die and I think you can find some decent deals if you book ahead of time. AND there is an Eric Ripert restaurant in the Ritz that is just amazing.

        Also, I’ve never been but I had an Aunt go on her honeymoon to the Atlantis and I think there is a new part of it with private huts off to the side. From what I understand, it’s separate from the general/family area. They seemed to like it a lot – might be worth checking out for some good deals when you book ahead of time?

        Also, the Delano in Miami has rooms around the pool you can rent…not private (pool is for anyone in the hotel) but pretty close to it and nice amenities. Kind of a party scene, though.

      • Donkicles says:

        Another vote for Belize. I went last winter and it was great. Stayed far up on Ambergris Caye – about 3.5 miles north of the little town of San Pedro – and it was nice and quiet. No roads, all access was by boat. Beautiful stuff.

    • Grifty Shades of Bray says:

      I would do this for you at my little resort-ette in FL.

    • Malformed Face (Like a Bloated Deli Ham Left in a Mercedes C Class) says:

      Anyone have ideas for Belize that might be beautiful but not super duper expensive? After taking care of a sick parent so long I really, really want to go somewhere in Jan/Feb.

      I’m open to other places with a similar vibe… Thanks, kittens.

      • Malformed Face (Like a Bloated Deli Ham Left in a Mercedes C Class) says:

        Okay, I’ve seen a lot of decent places on air bnb for Belize… but if anyone has any ideas for a quick “Holy shit, I have to get out of NY” for a week type places. A long car trip is fine, I just want to do it on somewhat of a budget since I have taken so much time off work….

        • Grammarian says:

          lots of b&b places in the catskills

        • helobabe says:

          If 8hr drive isn’t too awful (I sort of like a nice drive) and you like skiing, Mt. Tremblant in Canada is really heavenly. Just don’t speed through Upstate NY – got a killer ticket :(

          • helobabe says:

            Also, if you’re just not into skiing – Montreal is really fun and has an amazing restaurant scene. And hugs to you and your parent!

          • Malformed Face (Like a Bloated Deli Ham Left in a Mercedes C Class) says:

            I would love a long road trip! Thank you for the tip!

          • bitchface says:

            oh totally – or keep on to Quebec City – so great in the winter (like old France in North America)

      • Slutty Catbanger says:

        Caye Caulker in Belize is amazing and cheap! It’s very small and doesn’t have any resorts. I had a great time there, and I have a tiny travel budget (got an amazing flight deal).

        Also the interior of Belize is beautiful and a shortish $10 bus ride from Belize City. The caves are incredible. My favorite trip ever.

    • JFA says:

      I would try Vieques or Culebra, PR. I went to Culebra – gorgeous unspoilt beaches, few tourists…though maybe not as many amenities as you want. We spent ten days at a very small hotel with almost no amenities and like, 6 rooms total. At times I had a beautiful 1 mile long beach to myself. Vieques I havent been to but I imagine it’s almost as private with some better resorts.

  5. Gift Grifter says:

    I’m not even NuttyGrannyMoneybags-aged but I couldn’t even sit through the into to the show. So much echoing! So much weird guitar shredding!

  6. mcakez says:

    Hah! I watched the Ricky Lake episode spefically because I knew B. from STFUP (another favorite site) would be on it, and was shocked when Donkey came on, too. I tweeted something about it being a weird, ironic, meeting of my Internet obsessions, and B. tweeted back that she once interned with Julia. It did make me wonder if she was a catlady.

  7. solidarity cat says:

    I was just happy to hear rebloggingdonk recognized as “one of the funniest blogs out there.” Word.

  8. Bunburying says:

    OT: Looks like Blondie Girl Productions is behind something even worse than Miss Advised.

  9. sausage curls/fingers says:

    Can someone transcribe it for us cat ladies who can’t listen? Or give a small summary?

  10. A colossus of scheme juices and failure says:

    My favorite moment was when they said that the worst insult you could hurl at Donks was to say that nobody knows her.

    True that!

  11. Sad Rat In Sidewalk says:

    Awesome! Mr. Sad Rat has been a guest on that show too, so you know it really has cred.

  12. Circumstantial Celiac Sass says:

    Re: OT topic
    Cheeca Lodge in FL, Sea Island in GA. Maybe Kiawah in SC.

  13. Norse Horse says:

    4h Julia Allison ‏@JuliaAllison
    En route to Peru for two weeks! (You know it’s a real adventure when you’d rather be home in bed!!)

    Lol wut. She’d rather be home in bed? Such an adventuress. Honestly, she has the worst “sense” of “humor” ever. Is there some sort of resentful sarcasm here?

    Julia Allison ‏@JuliaAllison
    “Be ready to embrace the outrageous, the beautiful, the saintly, and the surreal.”

    Don’t forget the typhoid, malaria, hepatitis, and dengue fever!

    • bitchface says:

      one can only hope for the best….

    • Don Quixote says:

      Donkeys have no business going on an “entrepreneur retreat.” Whoever invited her is in idiot.

      • Effing Ineffably Un-Effable says:

        It’s grifter courtesy. There will be no actual entrepreneurs at this thing, just people looking to actualitze their latest paradigm. None of these people actually do real work.

    • Grifty Shades of Bray says:

      She’s going to love the altitude sickness. So apparently Debby is going on this trip too, since he was in Chile last week? These dopes are going to go broke together.

    • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant says:

      I’m sure she’ll waste all her time in Peru, but I am still jealous of Donkey for getting to go there. This is so wasted on an animal so insular that she hates leaving the US.

      • Grifty Shades of Bray says:

        She hates leaving the public eye is all.

      • JFA says:

        I’m very jealous. I haven’t had a vacation in a long time. Various life circumstances. She’s awful. At least I”m not awful.

        Ugh whatever she wont’ have fun and she won’t learn anything so who cares.

    • Tingolayo says:

      A luxury adventure pre-arranged by someone else, who tells you, “Look at that thing there; it’s important” and “Look at that other thing over there; it’s spiritual.”

      “Be ready to embrace the outrageous, the beautiful, the saintly, and the surreal.” So deep, man. Oh well, maybe it’ll help her figure out what she wants to do for a job, since “journalist,” “columnist,” “founder of a website,” and “social media ‘expert’” are all out.

    • darling dearest says:

      rather be home in bed? UGH I would love to be able to go to Peru for two weeks. how obnoxious.

    • JFA says:

      UGH SHE IS THE WORST. I’m so sick of her hallmark fucking card adventures and bon mots. Fuck off already.

      What a waste of a good trip on an undeserving unimaginative cuntrag. Stupid hick. #angry #Ineedavacation

    • CaptainGary says:

      #humblebrag

    • Wonkeye says:

      I hope she embraces the ayahuasca and craps her pretty pink pants.

      • Lily's 3rd Eye says:

        Hehhehheh. Seems to me that no mindful practitioners would ever let her do it, so she’d be stuck on the tourist circuit:
        “Some take the night’s activities as a performance. Chloe from Los Angeles gives us a running commentary of her entire journey, almost every night. This is extremely tiresome. Note to self — space invader.”

      • Lily's 3rd Eye says:

        Also from that funny article: “She shouts exultantly at high pitch to one of the helpers “Let it out of your rectum! Oh, let it out of your rectum! Let it out!” Another choice eructation — “I’m a vegan and I want a hamburger!” I’m a humane guy, and I’m sympathetic to others for sure, but I don’t give a rat’s ass about any of her comments…

        Danny too is full of useless blathering, from a running commentary on his favorite albums to critical observations on clothing, to restaurants he likes back home. My tolerance wears down to the nubs as he prattles endlessly about everything that has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of us journeying in peace. I start thinking about duct tape, and how it could calm the ceremony right down.

        The idea is to allow everyone to have their healing, but several of us are just annoyed. Chloe and Danny have neither off buttons nor volume controls. When I am snake-wrestling with a luminous anaconda, the last thing I want is to hear someone else’s conversation, nearby and at loud volume.”

        • Wonkeye says:

          That is exactly how Jaba and Debbie Seltzer are going to sound on it. He’ll be jabbering about this cute pair of Club Monaco slacks he saw (but can’t afford because he doesn’t work), while she narrates her explosive diarrhea.

          • Albie Quirky says:

            Wait, is Debbie going on this Peru trip?

            Jesus fuck, how is he affording any of this?

          • Mazen Wellesley says:

            @Albie… Hopefully Julia is paying for Goat Soap to travel around. And by Julia, I mean Peter Baugher, of course.

          • Lily's 3rd Eye says:

            Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!! “I really need those slacks, they have an adjustable thingie in the back in case I losemore weight, they are awesome and soft and fluffy and magical and they have this really cool pattern, and I have them on layaway but I don’t know if I can afford to pay all of the 79 dollars to get them out in time, why are the walls rippling?”

  14. diluted brain says:

    Was everyone able to listen? For some reason I can’t on this laptop. Bummer… I love STFU Parents and I don’t have any kittens.

  15. Rosalie says:

    So my husband is being a major crankypants right now and I found myself about to call after him, “Calm down, Kevin!” before I realized he’d be like WTF.

  16. Sacred Scrapbooks (Try the Chilean sea bass!) says:

    Is this the Cosmik Debris who’s leading the totally non-confusing journey to native spirituality/entrepreneurial wealth/colorful hats/sand fly bites?

    Michael Costuros ‏@mCosturos
    Excited about leading my next group of entrepreneurs to Peru, with Michael Ellsberg and Jena La Flamme, just 30 days away!…
    10:56 AM – 14 Sep 12

    Last year he hosted a “Shamanic Journey to Meet Your Animal Spirit Ally” workshop, http://www.facebook.com/events/159504184126341/

    Did Julia mention taking the houseboy along, or is he staying in LA to cook and clean for paying guests?

    • Grifty Shades of Bray says:

      Google him amd you will find a video of Michael C explaining his entrepreneurial coaching and why he started Livebooks, which is an online service for photographers. He seems less griftery than her other acquaintances but his tips are such “duh” revelations. “Be willing to fail.” Wow, that’s so deep. At least we know Donk will be sure to follow that one closely.

      • Albie Quirky says:

        She’s certainly able to fail, but not so much willing.

        It’s interesting—she thinks she’s a great risk-taker, but she just drifts along burning bridge after bridge while knowing that Pettifogger and Mama Bird will always bail her out.

        • Tingolayo says:

          Seriously. Since when is going on vacation taking a risk? Maybe she’ll get sunburned or leave her curling iron in the hotel; there are always those risks.

  17. Albie Quirky says:

    Hey, I had a dream a couple of nights ago that there was an RBD convention, which included a giant potluck lunch and a choral sing-along of all the songs we’ve rewritten with Julie-centric lyrics. The keynote event was raffling off a watercolor portrait of Debbie Seltzer.

    Then Julie herself stormed in, wearing a big headband and some kind of demented Peter Pan outfit (elf boots, jerkin, and tights) and made a big tearful scene. The artist who had painted the portrait of Debbie, who was not a catlady but had been commissioned by Jacy or jp, felt bad for Julie and wanted to take her painting back because we were so mean.

    I woke up just as a bunch of us were explaining to her why Julie was a liar and hypocrite, so.
