Gossip Girl Is Faceless, But Not Brainless
Over the years, Gossip Girl has delighted us with pithy wisdom and juicy info. We spent the weekend watching Gossip Girl on DVD, scouring fansites and weeding through the goods, all so we could present you with the Girl's most valuable insights and amusing advice.
Ignoring the fact that this would be one seriously long text message, it's still some decent advice about considering your options. Of course, the cynic might also point out that it's mostly just vague and foreboding. We're all bound to make the wrong choice from time to time. All Gossip Girl and Camus have done is add more stress to our decision-making process.
Here's why we love this: It's so relevant to Gossip Girl. Each of the characters has faced their fair share of trials and tribulations. Yes, they could also use a lesson from Oprah about learning how to stand on their own two feet, but at the same time, it's the love they share as friends that always pulls them through the storm.
Which are you more likely to remember: The first song of a concert or the last song in the encore? We remember what's freshest in our minds. Skip showing up fashionably late. This New Year's Eve, be the girl blustering out of the party fashionably early. (But not too early. Get that kiss at midnight, first!)
Not so much wisdom or advice as just a sage observation, it's worth keeping in mind. Pay attention. Sometimes we're so caught up in one ending, we don't notice a new beginning. We can also get so carried away by just the idea of something beginning that we miss clear signs as to how it will end.
So typically Gossip Girl. Scandals are like movie diversions and quick getaways — you can't have one without the other. All the best escapes and all the best scandals turn out to be two-fold.
Of course, there is one very big fallback to this advice: We have no idea who's giving it. Who are you more likely to listen to? Blair? Serena? Darota? Or a perfect stranger?
