I have a new guilty pleasure as of late. Months ago I had seen a trailer for MTV’s new TV show “Skins”. The preview looked so unbelievably terrible that I momentarily became fascinated and decided to look up information about it online. I found out that it was actually a remake of a version that aired for multiple seasons in the UK. The reviews that I had read said that the UK version was edgy and would never be able to be aired in the US because of the content. So I decided to watch the first season on Netflix. As soon as I had finished the first episode, I knew that there would be no way I would ever watch the watered down US version, there would be no reason to.
The show is based around a group of kids, each of course loaded with their own problems and getting into their own ridiculous “real life” situations. Doesn’t sound like anything special right? As I got more and more into the first season it hit me as to why the show is so awesome. Nicole was on the couch next to me as I was watching. She was on her laptop not actually watching the show but peeking over at the TV occasionally and finally made a comment that pretty much summed up the show. She said that the show is basically an R-rated Nickelodeon show. That description is dead on. If you ever wondered what a Nickelodeon show would be like with drug use, violence, strong sexual content, and low brow humor defiantly give the U.K. version of “Skins” a watch. It is bloody brilliant.
I finished another model pic for the site that I thought came out well. This one is for my Hemingway shirt where I have done some Photoshop stuff with a picture I shot of Nicole.
