Never knew you had a blog, up to 5 minutes ago… Just wanted to let you know I love watching Nostalgia Chick, you’re quite(yes I’m being modest) funny and you’re hearing that from a dude from Holland which says a lot…I think.
Also, you were blonde before?, or was that a temporary dye? Anyway, I’m can’t wait for your future videos and good luck with school and all!
(fan, maybe fan is a big word…admirer?, sounds stalky..just SOMEONE )
I’ve got to say that your videos on TGWTG.com are, by far and away, my favorite on the site. It’s too bad you can’t make more on a regular basis, but I understand that going for a masters in film is no small task.
It would be great to see some of the original stuff you’re creating in film school. I can’t wait until you break into the film industry, since it is clear from your “chick” videos that you already possess a better understanding of story and character than 80% – 85% of the writers in Hollywood.
I know this is random, but I saw your question on Twitter (“So if a woman who preys on younger men is a cougar, what’s a young man who goes after older women?”). I just wanted to say that I believe the answer is that he’d be called a “cake eater”, after the Japanese believe that both Christmas cakes and women had a sort of “sell by” deadline and anything past that time was stale and ancient (thus, women past a certain age were called “Christmas Cake”).
Anyway, I just wanted to throw that out there. ^^;
Hey Lindsay, I hate to bother you, but I had an idea for a future video. Would you be interested in doing a tribute to female detectives of film and TV (ex. V.I. Warshawski, Cordelia Gray, Miss Marple, Veronica Mars, Nancy Drew, Charlie’s Angels.)
Or if you’re looking for something really shitty to ravage, the High School Musical trilogy. But you might need to team up with other contributors to handle that mess… *fingers crossed*
Just wanted to let you know that your work for TGWTG is really a cut above the rest and is what’s made me a regular visitor to the site. Doug and Lewis are great (Noah is more like a guilty pleasure) but I look forward to the content and quality of your pieces moreso than any of the others. Signing out before I let on that I’m one of the weirdies.
Ummm….Yeah, also using this spot to compliment you on your Nostalgia Chick/TGWTG spot. It’s one of my favorite sites on all the internet and I get hella excited whenever I see a new video. Your new two parter on Showgirls was fantastic, I laugh for about 15 minutes straight at all your vid’s, so thank you. And I am secretly crossing my fingers that one day you’ll tackle and do comedic justice to “Jem and the Holograms”. Good luck with everything and keep up the amazing!
I’m a junior in high school interested in studying film production/cinematography in college in two years and specifically looking at schools like USC and UCLA. I was wondering if you had any tips on how to get in and survive the programs there and how you like the program so far.
I just discovered this blog of yours after seeing the link in the ever after review, which I enjoyed, and was sad I hadn’t seen this site sooner.
I don’t think there’s any one answer. A lot of people would say that you don’t need to go to film school to make films, others would point to the fact that both USC and NYU have had alums win Academy Awards every year since the 1970′s. That said, if you’re set on film school, I’m not terribly sure about the differences between grad and undergrad (I’m in grad). The programs aren’t hard to survive if you work hard and are relatively good with people, don’t get in fights, etc, but it seems like what both of those programs are looking for more than anything is creativity and a distinct vision, so always err on the side of unique and innovative; that’s what’s most likely to get you noticed in terms of your application. Also, mention weird creative shit you’ve done in the past.
That’s about all I can think to tell you. Best of luck!
Hmm, just commented on your SCIENCE! blog so, while I’m here…
Have you considered an episode concerning female character archetypes in the modern day comic book movie genre? Something that looks at films in what I think of as the post X-Men movie generation of comic book flicks?
I only mention this as I was reading some of Will Eisner’s original Spirit comic book series and noted that whereas Frank Miller unabashedly (and weirdly) sexually objectified women in his movie version of The Spirit (and everything else he’s ever done), Eisner’s original work instead portrayed women as, well, annoying and stupid.
The poor portrayal of female characters in comic books is nothing new, of course. I just find it interesting how instead of actually improving, it seems that comic books just deal with their female characters in a different but still generally negative light.
Hey, Lindsay, love your Nostalgia Chick videos. You crack up me (46) and my daughter (17). The Pocahontas review, even though I love “Savages” was dead on. Where WAS Kocum shot?
But, I have a problem, and that’s with your use of the word “retarded.” I’ve explained so many times why the word bothers me so much, especially when smart people use it, I wrote a time-saving essay that’s called “You’re Too Smart to Say ‘Retarded.’” http://divalea.livejournal.com/591337.html
Obviously, the videos already done are done. I hope from now on, you’ll find a better word to encapsulate “stupefyingly dumb.”
You are brilliant. Your videos at TGWTG are some of my favorites. Your analysis of media is spot on and greatly entertaining, and I envy the way you’re making a name for yourself in new media.
When I realized you were in Los Angeles, I thought I should say hi – I’m a last year-ish graduate student over at UCLA’s film school. I spent two years as a live action costume designer, and I’m currently getting my MFA in animation.
If you ever need help with costuming or props on a budget, titles, animation etc. I’m very handy, and I really believe that female filmmakers should stick together and help each other whenever possible. Contact me any time and I’d be delighted to lend a hand
Good luck with all your endeavors, and I hope you’re able to gather enough funds with your ebay sales!
Your videos are amazing and always make me laugh. And im sure you probably get this a buttload from all over the place but your effing incredibly gorgeous! That was actually the reason why i watched you in the first place lol but then i really started to like the videos themselves haha. Okay enough with being “crazy-internet-thinks-girl-in-video-reviews-on-some-website-is-hot-so-decided-to-tell-her-on-her-blog-guy”
Wonderful videos over on that other site; you add some, well, class to the proceedings with your wit and intelligence. Wonderful ‘blog as well. I’ve been thumbing through (and even left some rambling comments), and loving all of it.
If you ever want to see a movie at the Nuart theater in West L.A., come on by. I work there, and I’ll get you in for free.
It would be cool if someday in the future for your final Nostalgia Chick movie review video that you review Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World. That way you would come full circle in the end because your very first Nostalgia Chick movie review video was Pocahontas .
First I wanted to tell you that you are very hilarious. I enjoy your dead-pan approach to your reviews. I hope that you continue to produce wonderful reviews that make me smile and laugh. I also wanted to congratulate you on your attendance to USC. I’m going there for my undergrad and after learning that fact, I respect everything you say in your reviews so much more because of the great cinematic school they have. Good luck with your masters. Keep up the great reviews.
