|Project Runway Gives Tim Gunn a Headache|
Dearest BunnyNation – I need your advice.
Some of you may recall that on October 29, 2010 I vowed NEVER to mention Project Runway on this blog again. This was prompted by the ending of yet another disastrous Lifetime season of this once great show – manufactured by the despicable production team of Bunim-Murray. Gretchen Whatshername, you might remember, ended up beating the fabulous and inspiring Mondo Guerra. And she won by sending granny panties down the runway…
And no, I’m still not over it.
But, just as in seasons past, the bitter taste of Project Runway Season 8 has faded with time. And in 28 days the show will return for Season 9.
Here’s my quandary. As I’ve said before, I really want/need to get back to doing recaps. Project Runway was the first show I ever recapped – and those recaps were the first thing on my blog to get noticed/acknowledged by the rest of the blogosphere. Project Runway, literally, put DavidDust on the map - and it's the reason many of you found me.
So ... should I bite my tongue, go back on my promise and recap this season anyway?? I don’t care so much about the vow never to mention the show again – in fact, I’m breaking that vow right now (with this post). And, let’s face it, I vow every day not to stuff my face full of fast food and carbs – and promptly break THAT sucker every day at about 12:30 pm. So the whole “vow” thing isn’t that big of a deal (NOTE TO SELF: Don't ever get gaymarried).
I just hate the fact that this season will undoubtedly be another stinker – and Bunim-Murray will screw it up, as they have every season since the show moved to Lifetime. I’m feeling a little bit like one of those sad Babymamas on Maury – no matter how badly she/I/we get treated by the NO GOOD BABYDADDY (AKA Lifetime), we keep coming back for more. And each time she/I/we return, we convince ourselves that this time it will be different.
It won't be different this time, but I want to do the right thing by my DustBunnies. Should I recap this damned trainwreck ... or not?
