If you read DC blogs (I assume you do, at this point), then you've probably heard about The Anti Real World DC. It's a collaborate blog effort that's been going on for a few weeks. I've been reading it occasionally, as it's gotten ubiquitous coverage as of late. I've avoided commenting on this, but there are a few things that really need to be said.
1. Get over it. The Real World is here, and they don't care about you. I'm sorry that there are roughly six less parking spots in your neighborhood than before. And maybe the house will be a little noisy for the duration of their stay. However, the producers of the Real World obtained all of the necessary permits and are here legally. Maybe they aren't playing by your so called rules, and attending your local ANC meetings. But if you've got a serious problem with this, take it up with the Government of the District of Columbia. I'm sorry the producers of the show didn't come to your house with a fruit basket to preemptively apologize for their presence.
2. I was with you, somewhat, but then you went after the appearance of the cast. Did you have legitimate concerns about the show, because I forgot the moment you discuss how a girl was wearing too much makeup. 1) who cares, and 2) she's being filmed, of course she'll have more makeup on than normal. Are you Perez Hilton or are you trying to make a real point? Because I don't know anymore. Your celebrity gawking and mocking is just more publicity for the show you supposedly despise and are up in arms about.
3. You actually meet some of the cast and "epically fail" in your mocking. So you're at the Big Hunt and some members of the cast come into the bar. What's that? You mock them for listening to Kanye West and Outkast? Further mocking for the Temptations? Wow, grasping for straws a bit there? You come face to face with one of the girls (is this the one with too much makeup?) and all you manage to say is that you don't hate her and that you want to buy her a drink. Because she's cute. Oh, okay. And then you go on and bash the Human Rights Campaign? All in one post? Jesus, how many more people do you want to alienate on your blog. Typical DC, I suppose. All talk, but when you had a chance to say "you aren't welcome here, in fact, I dedicate a lot of my spare time to mocking you" you didn't. No, you hit on her. And then you lamented that you went home alone. Please.
4. What's the point, and are you astroturfing for MTV? Yeah, that's right. I went there. Maybe someone smart at MTV realized that "local blogs" are popular, and that they could drum up publicity by creating an "Anti" Real World blog. If MTV isn't paying you to promote the show, they should start. Free advertising.
The Anti Real World DC is doing one thing, serving as the epitome of self-absorbed, self-important DC. I could really care less about the Real World filming in DC, but what I really hate are these people who get so riled up about something that is not worth getting riled up over. They sprinkle in little 'factoids' about how important they think they are (e.g. "Look at me! I'm important. I plan events! For a non-profit! I know how to make nice with the ANC") and how this is obviously the end of the world for them.
Look, you'll survive. Maybe I should have made a blog called "Anti Wrecking Ball Coming 10 ft. From My Window" back when the school next to where I lived was being torn down. No one asked me if that was O.K. That was a whole lot louder and a whole lot more a pain in the ass than some stupid television show. Or how about the "Anti Gang War down the Street from Where I Live," that's one I can get behind. Or maybe "Anti Marion Barry Embarrassing My City So I'll Never Get the Vote."
I know for a fact that you are loving every second of this, and without a doubt you will watch every damn episode that airs. So why don't you change your web site already and admit to the world you're happy they are here.
