Firstly, let’s welcome the esteemed movie of our travel blogging lives, American Blogger. OK, strictly it’s just about blogging in general BUT the dude does travel around in that sweet AirStream and meets a cross section of lifestyle bloggers.
Who happen to be his wife’s friends. Well, the best looking section of his wife’s friends. Well, her white friends. Well, her young white friends. It’s a line up of affluent eye candy, is what it is. I don’t doubt that some of these ladies can write, but when you take them in all at once, as in this now infamous trailer, it’s an overwhelming conveyor belt of suburban blandness that somehow also manages to be preciously pretentious.
Take your affluenza shots before viewing.
Added to this is an astonishing response by one Mr J Blair to the curious case of his girlfriend’s missing purse (via Mr David Whitley, many thanks for bringing it to Twitter’s attention).
Seems that Mr Blair’s “backpacking girlfriend” misplaced some cash during her stay at a Japanese hotel in Okinawa. Who knows what transpired, but what followed was this incredibly over the top tirade of don’t-you-know-who-I-am-ness.
The open letter is essentially just a massive list of Mr Blair’s achievements, not to mention the kracken-raising-esque threat of action from that most shadowy of all evil empires, the Professional Travel Blogger’s Association. No-one takes on the PTBA and lives to tell the tale.
The lexical petulance ends, rather bafflingly, by quoting Noel Gallagher, lead songwriter of popular beat combo Oasis, and patron saint of customer service in the hospitality industry.
“Your destiny will keep you warm.”
If that’s not a hint at sinister repercussions, we’re not sure what is.
