Why I'm not writing about the VS Fashion Show this year

Two things:

I'm not going to write about the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show this year.  I was irritated by it.  The looks weren't as jaw-droppingly gorgeous as last year or the year before and I have a bone to pick with Rihanna.  I'm not that big of a fan of her music and I don't particularly like her attitude as of late - especially after the coverage of her 777 Tour.  I was a little disappointed with VS for hosting her.
I was also disappointed with the "paparazzi style" camera work this year.  Yes, I know it's their thing but it felt like they were overdoing it this year.  Normally, you get cool shots of the girls in slo-mo (which they had), and doing cute poses (which they did) but I don't think some of the girls got the love they deserved.  In the Calendar Girls segment (where Miss January got barked at as they were trying to figure out if they should keep the hat or lose it - normal backstage shit but we don't need to see that), I don't remember seeing Miss November at all!  And they could've showcased the beauty that is Liu Wen - especially since she had all that beautiful work done for the Circus segment!

The reception to this look hasn't been good but I think it's gorgeous! I thought it was one of the better looks since I still heart Carnivale. She was a vision and I loved it!

And to spare you of my Avid drama at work, I've started a blog to chronicle my uneasy transition.

I hope to maybe connect with other FCP-to-Avid users and maybe swap stories or get / share tips.  Feel free to follow!  If I get enough followers, I might open the submissions for editors, motion graphics artists, graphic designers and other artists to share their stories as well!

I hope you all have a good weekend!
