One bitch of a blog. What is? WhoDoYoThinkHeAre, of course.
This blog with the very awkward name is a fashion police of sorts; it is run by two self-declared quirky critics from Indonesia named Mpok Jane and Neng Sarah. In short, I think they are certifiably mad. But I highly approve!
Gleefully refreshing and guaranteed to make you snort your bowels out, the blog is written in English, occasionally lending itself to the owners' tongue of Bahasa Indonesia because at times the funny bits hit home better when told in its native language. The mood of the reviews written by Jane and Sarah by far surpass the level of bitchiness that only gay men with impeccable taste in grooming can project with perfection.
You know what. I think Jane and Sarah are gay men.
The Indonesian artists and superstars that fall victim to Jane and Sarah's microscoping are analyzed mercilessly to hell, never to return. And if you saw some of the appalling styles featured, you too would emphatize and commend Jane and Sarah for choosing to dedicate their lives to verbally abuse the ill-dressed of the rich and famous.
MyIndo.com: How did you come up with the idea to create this blog?
WhoDoYouThinkHeAre: why the grammatically atrocious name?
[The real explanation: According to detik.com, the "who do you think he are" phrase was made notoriously famous by actress Sarah Azhari who said it on Indonesian national TV some years ago. Someone get this lady enrolled in English classes please.]
How do you obtain the photos of artists you have on your blog? Magazines?
Other websites? Personal collection?
Are you sisters?
Are you working in the fashion industry, hence giving you more credibility
to analyze these ugly fashions adorned by your fellow artists?
MyIndo.com: Why do you think these artists featured on your blog
have such terrible sense of dressing? Who are the worst, in your opinion?
MyIndo.com: We noticed you wrote multiple posts on Armand
Maulana and Shanty
– they must be your favorite people to critique. Comment please.
Your favorite top 3 reviews from WHODOYOUTHINKHEARE and why.
Have you ever thought about going further with WHODOYOUTHINKHEARE, like
publishing a book of Indonesia’s worst dressed, or maybe even a
TV show? How do you think it’ll fare commercially? Is Indonesia
ready for such reality-bites?
MyIndo.com: We noticed that some of your readers can be pretty right-winged and
righteous (the anal ones) and condemn what you do. Most of them are cool
though and think you’re funny. What would you say to those people
who hate what you do?
What would you do if you ever got sued for defamation from the artist
whom you reviewed? Have you ever gotten a personal email from an artist
whom you’ve reviewed?
Congrats for being reviewed on detik.com. Have other Indonesian media
taken note of WHODOYOUTHINKHEARE?
Hey thanks for the interview with MyIndo.com. Any words of wisdom for
future Indonesian artists?
MyIndo.com: What do you gals (or guys?) look like?
[ MyIndo.com: OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.... The curiosity continues to loom, dear readers. We may never find out what Jane and Sarah really look like. ]
Update! (2 June '06) Find out who those people in the photo really are. (Subject to verification as my knowledge of Indonesian artists/models is close to nil.)
We survived this interview, sob! :~)
Do you think Jane and Sarah are mad, too?

|Hey MIIKO, I have no idea what happened to them. Perhaps the intensity of running such a gossipy and guilty pleasurable blog has taken a toll on them and now they're permanently sunning themselves in Hawaii for a much deserved vacation.|

|they are! haha.. where are they now?? miss their writings so much!|
|#25||JaF - Website||14-Oct-2007, 14:35 MYT|

|I think both Jane and Sarah are hilarious!! I love their blog, it's so genuine and brilliant. Besides, indonesian celebs need these people to remind them of the fact that they're stupid and ugly-dressed.|
|#23||Fairy||22-Jun-2007, 15:48 MYT|
|kamprett0: Oh gitu. OK thanks for the clarification. It's good to hear from folks who actually know the subjects being discussed!|
|#22||kamprett0||22-Jun-2007, 13:13 MYT|
|Fai, They weren't necessarily p0rn*s... only did a handfull of softcore cinemas on the 80's when "Gairah"s movies were a hit.|

|CHINUE: Yes, I just found out about the two porn stars. I don't exactly go around hunting down info on p0rn you know, ini juga dikasi tip sama teman.|
|#18||chinue||19-Jun-2006, 17:49 MYT|
|so, u just find out that the pictures they claim to be theirs are porn star pics? hahaha3 i thought u knew... i wonder if they work in media industry or a fashion editor in some kind of mags, i meant they must have had a good connection or link to obtain all those seleb pics (here i go again, my suspicious minds)|

I have one more update on the REAL identities of the two women in the photo sent to me by Sarah and Jane.
Malvin Shayna yg dibelakang dan Nourma Yunita (according to Fana - thanks Fana!)
See these links:
Holy tamale, they're p0rn stars!

Hi MEI, SPARKINGCOSMIC:
Girls, guys, doesn't matter who they are. Jane and Sarah could be space aliens with a penchant for fashion critique for all I care.
Oo, someone in the two ladies' blog finally shed some light on who the people in the photo might be: NINDY ELLESE? Who?
See below comment (taken from Jane and Sarah's shoutbox):
5:46 AM May 31, 2006
weks... fairy.. fotonya nindy ellese yah yg dipampang buat interview? Najong.. jebot banget tuh style.. ahahah

|Hi Fairy. Thanks for the interview, i like it. Definitely they are mocking us, the readers, by posting the photo. But hell, i think it is hilarious that it did make me|
|#13||Mei - Website||1-Jun-2006, 19:09 MYT|
|Hi fairy... Love this interview! I think Jane and Sarah are both gals... Personally I think that site|
|#12||Fairy||1-Jun-2006, 15:05 MYT|
Thanks for your comments. Yes, the "photo" of Jane and Sarah does look like it's scanned in from a magazine isn't it. Oh how they've mocked us. I was so hoping to expose who they really were but apparently they are not ready to get out of the closet.
I agree with you that it's a little bit more exciting if some identities are left unknown, and yes it shouldn't matter at all who they are, gay men or grumpy women lacking orgasms. At any rate, Jane and Sarah's contributions at whodoyouthinkheare is a work of utter passion and pure entertainment. It's all in good fun. Mazel tov to them!

it's nice interview... i'm one of WhoDoYouThinkHeAre' s fans i love their answers in the interview as much as i love their 'fashion-review' in that blog...
i myself...don't really care whether WhoDoYouThinkHeAre creators is pure women or gaymen or pure men...or who knows it's only one person to be both Mpok Jane and Neng Sarah...or..who knows the-2nd-most-famous- freaky-Or_Kalem-in the blog (after Agnes Monica) is also the same person/people behind the scene? let it be a mistery...! coz it's the way
|#10||JaF - Website||1-Jun-2006, 03:15 MYT|
Interesting site those two gay bitches have created.
Personally, I don't think they took the pictures themselves. Check out the quality of the picts. It's like they're scanning it from some magazine or paper.
One more thing: It would be more interesting if they have the courage to get out of their masks and reveal who they really are.. hehe
jsut my opinion.. Great piece of posting here, Fairy.. I always admire your work..

|CHINUE: Haha, we're probably spot on about them being gay men you know. I mean, REALLY. Even genuine women aren't that bitchy.|
|#6||chinue||30-May-2006, 14:22 MYT|

|#5||Fairy||29-May-2006, 16:40 MYT|
|AQI: You can't read their blog? Why? Can't access? Or can't stomach their reviews?|
|#4||AQI||29-May-2006, 15:41 MYT|

|#3||Fairy||29-May-2006, 09:49 MYT|
ADHE: I think they are ALWAYS out of the line. But that's what makes reading their blog so fun, it's so outragerously true!
SILIA: Yes indeed a very cool interview, you gotta give them credit for being so bitchy with their answers. Iya lama kita tak ngobrol2 hehe. Kamu di mana sekarang?
