She would have an ass envied the world over. Seriouly, look at that thing! I would trade my sad ass for that fantastic one any day.
Artist Nickolay Lamm is responsible for the new-and-improved Barbie. "He transferred CDC (Center for Disease Control & Prevention) measurements of an average 19-year-old woman to make the 3-D model, then used photoshop to liken the doll to a Barbie."
Why did he go through all that trouble?
"If we criticize skinny models, we should at least be open to the possibility that Barbie may negatively influence young girls as well," says Lamm. "If there's even a small chance of Barbie in its present form negatively influencing girls, and if Barbie looks good as an average-sized woman in America, what's stopping Mattel from making one?"
Nickolay Lamm sounds like good people.

What I Do, Job-wise: So. Much. Other than playing on-air every day (and on DO YOU HATE IT? Sunday nights), you might get an e-mail response from me if you write in asking to know the name of a song or whether we're looking for interns. I'm all over the place, like a ninja, but less stealthy.
