The Strange Fascination
A few years back my best friend and I spent 3 hours of our lives on a website called "Hot Chicks with Douchbags". Why? Well, we'd heard that a girl we went to highschool with had been featured alongside her boyfriend- a black eye liner, heavy jewelry kinda guy. We couldn't find her but the rest of the carnage was hilarious and mortifying, mortifyingly hilarious if you will. That seems to be MTV's thing these days. Long gone are actual music videos. Today's shtick is showing you the gruesome details of everything you never want to be. With season 3 of "His She Really Going Out With Him" premiering on Monday, the genre is alive and well and finding new douchebags every day- this time in Boston, god help us.
