Good Kitsch: Alpenglühen. Screams, or rather, yodels "New Adventures of Heidi"*. But is not a "joke". Full disclosure: I know Nic. Know "of" her. Well, we hang out at klickundblick. Couple of emails, whatever. Still, if I didn't know her, I would really admire her mix of kitsch.
Bad Kitsch: Blythe Doll. Too late. Tries too hard. $80? Nope, not buying it. Not on any level.
*1978 with Burl Ives and Katy Kurtzman. A very intolerable movie. Yeah, that Burl Ives and the little blind girl from Little House on the Prarie singing alllll the time about her home in the Swiss Alps. There's even a crazy mountain man and Christmas shopping in New York. If you think you need a Blythe doll for some kitsch creds, get this movie instead.
