Gentlemen, Start Your Engines

Former Blake Babies star/90s indie-rock babe Juliana Hatfield has a memoir -- When I Grow Up (John Wiley & Sons) -- coming out on Sept. 22.



I've always kinda liked Hatfield, even during the whole Evan Dando soap opera, so this bit from a piece in today's New York Times struck me as particularly interesting:

But it [success] was all too much for the shy Ms. Hatfield to handle. She’d binge on ice cream and sweets, then starve herself on a handful of nuts and a granola bar for days; standing 5 foot 7 inches tall, she weighed 100 pounds at her lowest. She had few friends and told Interview magazine that she was still a virgin in her mid-20s, which only fueled her reputation as a loner. (For the record, she now wants to make it clear that she’s no longer a virgin.)


Hey Juliana -- once you've had a fat, balding, middle-aged Jew you never go back. Just saying, babe.

Idea: let's shoot Juliana Hatfield, Liz Phair, and Aimee Mann in a rocket to the moon, where the lack of atmosphere would silence their endlessly crappy, boring songs forever. Every once in a while they can beam a pouty photo back to earth for inclusion in Random Notes.

You may say I'm a dreamer. But I'm not the only one.

Dear Juliana:

Simels is a real good catch, even if he once was a little androgynous.

If she weighs over 100 now I would be surprised.. she's scary skinny

Noam, can I get on that rocketship to the moon?

And you are the first person I have heard call Liz Phair boring! OK, she is not Wendy O Williams (can I get an amen?) but boring????

Tmink, it's derivative in the extreme. Jumping up and down trying to get attention doesn't make you exciting.

Maybe it's an age thing; I'm pushing 50, so I know what she's ripping off, and frankly, it wasn't all that great the first time around.
