Autostraddle’s Terrible/Awesome Forecast Grid – The Fall Preview Edition

Alex-photo-by-EmilyHey straddlers! It’s Alex, your resident designer here at Autostraddle. With all the festivities going on surrounding our Fall Preview “Issue”, we thought we’d kick off what will be a recurring graphic visualizing all the happenings under our radar of the future. How do you measure a year? Or the next 2-3 months? Well, we measure it in terrible/awesome potential. Did you know that’s where Autostraddling came from? Straddling the line between terrible and AWESOME? True story. (Or is it?)

And so I present to you: Autostraddle’s Terrible/Awesome Forecast Grid: the Fall Preview Edition. How does your forecast/feelings compare? Are you secretly looking forward to ‘Three Rivers‘ and think it will be more terrible/awesome than just purely terrible? Do you know the dates for the damn Kanye/Gaga Tour so we can place it properly on the timeline/horizontal axis? Cause I would like those asap. Thank you!

  1. I LOVE this prediction!
    espesh the inclusion of ‘Rumer Willis’s lesbian character in 90210’- hilare. I doubt any gay lady is on the edge of their seat for that one. Although I would be fibbing if I said I hadn’t watched the slightly higher ranking Jennifer’s body kiss clip twice. It’s the adolescent boy in me.

  2. I think 3 Rivers might be so terrible that it could actually be awesome. Also I think that Alex Vega is somewhere up on the awesome side in the venn diagram of life. Did that not make sense? Whatevs!


    I want you to know you are very talented at graphics! You should have more posts and do this every week! it looks so sleek, it’s like the nymag matrix but like even better and more awesome/awesome!

    I CAN’T WAIT FOR 2.5 MEN!!!
