To be or, like...whatever

Like Shakespeare's classics, an episode of The Hills evokes as many questions as it answers...

A JC Penney commercial pays homage to "The Breakfast Club" - mysteriously minus Ally Sheedy's "dandruff snowflake" scene. Equally surreal: Bored with her job at Teen Vogue, Lauren envies her friend's job sorting clothing at an LA boutique.

But enough exposition. On with the liveblogging:

6:28 Why's Faux Biker Chick wearing a scarf when she lives in California?

6:32 Why are she and Malibu Barbie the only diners in the employee lunchroom? (And where on the East Coast can one find such a posh cafeteria?)

6:35 Why subtitles when they're speaking English?

6:37 How did Spencer get a friend who looks like David Beckham?

6:42 Why is Whitney chomping on gum at a classy fashion show?

6:46 "How can you love and hate someone so much at the same time?" (This mourned by Heidi, who spotted Spencer doing shots with a gaggle of strumpets at a club.)

6:50 Why does Spencer on the phone sound like he's talking through a witness-protection voice scrambler?

And the eternal question...

I think that JC Penny commercial is really lame. You can't mess The Breakfast Club and Simple Minds.

Don't you forget about me chameleon!

And I say la...., la, la, la, la, la,, la, la, la, la, la, la,, la......

When you walk on by.....................when you call my name....

ha ha ha. glad i'm not the only one catching important tv marathons yesterday. gosh that show is addictive in its awfulness.

My thought on the jc penney ad.... clearly they are appealing to OUR generation who ,eeek, they think are moms of pre-teen boys. sigggggghhh.

cause really, is that what teen boys are listening to/watching nowadays? "Man, LC, Brody is looking HOT!! Did you like see his like Breakfast Club get up? "

Re: scarf -- at least it wasn't an oh-so-trendy keffiyeh (was it?)

No, it was a traditional wool scarf around her neck, worn with a cleavage-baring short-sleeved t-shirt - though they only showed her from the waist up, I'm sure the rest of the outfit consisted of a miniskirt and Uggs
