Golden Girls for Hipsters

The I'm Just Sayin' Show is now out of beta -- it's already looking a lot better than last week! After a nice review, Tilzy.TV has an interview with me that explains how the show came together. We (Jackie, Alisa, Kristen, and I) like to think of the show as "Diggnation for girls" -- or, okay, "Golden Girls for hipsters."


maybe its a NY thing, but if I wanted to hear three girls cackle and rant about whatever the hell they wanted, I would go to a douche bar. Have you forgotten your MN roots Rex? for shame

This show would be much better live. I also suggest moving it over to the Viddler platform so I can tag the frak out of the timeline, and berate each girl with lines from Californication in the comments.

Dik: I think it's pretty clear this show isn't made for you!

Let's take this a step further. Have a live audience. Think bridge and tunnel crowd flashmobbing The View. Go buy three UMPC's with the fastest whatever cell signal you can get, cam them up, and send them off into the concrete jungle. It would be much more interesting to see these stories unfold from 3 points of view while they're happening.

Funny how the window went from 18 to 35 year old girls down to 18 to 30 year old girls...and those who like 18 to 30 year old girls...hmmmmm.

Some of my favorite reviews:

+ Thought Chasm: "Watch the video below and see if you arent attracted to the vacuous drivel."

+ Young Manhattanite: "Somewhere between NonSociety's TMI Weekly and Jezebel's Pot Psychology.

+ CatBird: "Perhaps it should be renamed 'The Crashes Safari Everytime You Load It Show')"

I admit that the show is not made for me, but that get's confusing when you say this
"Rex Sorgatz: The show is made for 18-30-year-old girls, and people who like 18-30-year-old girls."
Who doesn't like 18-30 year old girls? I don't mean to hate, congrats on another one of your many successes.

CatBird made your favorites list? Hearing it called The Crashes Safari Every Time You Load It Show cut me to the core. You can call us lame, but don't mess with our programming.

I think targeting is useful here: The show is made for 18-30-year-old girls who think Anthony Michael Hall was hot in Sixteen Candles, and have at least one MIA song on their current playlist.

taulpaul: and people who like 18-30-year-old girls.

sorry fixed

and Japanese businessmen who like 16 year-old school girls

It's their new niche audience. That's what Nielsen is telling me, and I'm sticking with it.

What I'm struggling with, if this is the Golden Girls for Hipsters, I've got who is Blanche, Rose, and Dorthy...but is Sklar gonna be Sofia? OMG..I didn't. :O

TaulPaul, you are dead to me.

But FYI, Estelle Getty was actually YOUNGER than Bea Arthur and Betty White. And Rex doesn't know this but I played Blanche in a sketch called "Golden Girls Gone Wild" in a 2004 sketch show, blissfully not online.

Rachel, you never cease to amaze me. In a good way, of course.

My observations:

This 'show' is simply Rex's desire (excuse) to hang out with three cute girls.

The last two 'reviews' were just links (not reviews), and they were both the same.

The one that was (sort of) a review called it "vacuous drivel", and "intoxicating in its emptiness." I agree, except I did not find it intoxicating.

By the way, what role does the producer play in this show? I suspect he's the one buying the Blue Moon (and the milk?)

I'm just askin'...

Haha, my manhood is shattered.

I don't need an excuse to hang out with them -- they're three of my best friends! I used to date one of them! They're three of my favorite people!

The show is really a consequence of us hanging out, not the other way around.

I protest too much... but yes, I fill their glasses, and they call me "Charlie," and we have fun.

HAHA. I believe the following comment from the interview linked above says it all. "best", as rex would say. you're not going to edit this one are you rex?

"rex should stick to his day job and his link blog, using his free time to bed down emotionally retarded 22 year olds or 40 year old women who are still single for a reason. hate to be so neg here but really cmon. what are you, a drunk 16 year old? no way this show ever draws an audience aside from ppl who stop by, eyes wide open and mouth agape, to gawk at the incredible lack of perspective on what people will tolerate or enjoy. welcome to 2012 rex where you will join tmi and blank white cards in a retrospective of the worst of examples of vanity ever attempted to masquerade as content, except people dont need the passage of time to look at this stuff today and let out a collective Oh My God."
