First, there was Lindsay's review of My Little Pony, which included video of me re-telling with old My Little Ponies pulled from my parent's attic a popular childhood story I played as a Wee Nella (albeit with more big girl words for the video, but the heart of the story remained).

Then--thanks to popular demand--the the (mostly) unabridged video of my 'pony epic' was posted.

And then...there was the scholarly deconstruction posted at That Guy With the Glasses by Oancitizen, entitled, My Toy Collection for a Horse: Gender Roles and Comparative Mythology in Nella's Pony Epic

Dear Oancitizen;

First, the very fact that you gave a shout out to Shakespeare's Richard III with your title of this scholarly masterpiece endeared me straight away; "a horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse!" Richard cried, and by god you ran with it. As it might be said, my prepubescent subversion of my judo-christian-greco-roman-centricity was showing. Who knew someone else could so impressively deconstruct the psyche of my childhood self, circa 5-8 years of age?

Also, I now intend to introduce "whoreducator" into everyday speech. I suspect my coworkers will be confused at first, but that it will quickly catch on.


In conclusion, with my compliments:


Well Done, Sir.

Regards,

Nella
Good God, I can't even. There are NOT enough hours in my days anymore! Every time I try to sit down and write something, or try to find the time to film something, I just can't! There's too much else to do in the meanwhile! I mean, good lord, the only thing I've accomplished yesterday besides clearing off my desk and tidying up my room was posting pictures with commentary for Lindsay! It's only Tuesday and I am ready to crash and BURN. In a way I'm almost (BUT REALLY JUST BARELY) grateful for this impending Snow-pocalypse—it's my ticket out of a few things I JUST DON'T HAVE TIME FOR. D:



IN OTHER MORE EXCITING NEWS, Lindsay has been trying to figure out how to review My Little Ponies. I don't remember watching that show when I was a wee!Nella, but by God did I have the ponies themselves. Lucky for her, I have no shame and tend to HOARD things, for I still HAVE all of my childhood My Little Ponies. After retrieving them from my parents' attic, I threw the following together last night as inspiration for her. Because that's what internet sidekick BFFs DO.

Behold, a picture journal of a My Little Pony story line I made up and enjoyed immensely as a wee!Nella...only with more adult words this time around, and a helping of self examination. )
So I tweeted about my lotto/Dr. Who/Dumbledore dream, and someone who follows me (whom I certainly don't know IRL and who I thinks follows me because of me being the sidekick of the Nostalgia Chick), posted THIS in response.

OMG. I CAN'T EVEN. I JUST GOT PHOTOSHOPPED YOU GUYS. AS DOCTOR WHO!NELLA.

WORDS. THEY FAIL ME.

I'M GOING TO BE FEELING WAAAAAAAAAAAY TOO GEEKILY COOL FOR THE REST OF THE DAY. THERE WILL BE NO LIVING WITH ME.

NOW WHERE'S MY SONIC SCREWDRIVER?
As it is my want, instead of catching up on my TRAGICALLY BEHIND NaNo word count(BLEH I'LL DO IT TOMORROW /WHINING), I instead FINALLY uploaded the "pilot" episode of an internet review series I came up with, thanks to all the time I've been spending over at That Guy With the Glasses, and the work I've done with Lindsay for her own reviews over there.

The opening blurb explaining the premise?

Agent Anachronism from E.V.E.N. reporting for duty!

For reasons too dark and time-consuming to mention here, it is my job to debrief you on the entertainment and cultural phenomena of the Retro Age (i.e. 1950-1975).

My first mission: A review of the hit 1960's spy show, "The Man from U.N.C.L.E."!


Part One:


Part Two:



So, give them a watch! Feedback--as ever--is appreciated, and is considered to be a vital tool in the fight against the O.D.D.!! ;)

Oh, and OF COURSE, feel FREE to pimp this to everyone and anyone. *WHISTLES INNOCENTLY*


...now, if only NaNo wasn't so difficult to defeat...
A while ago, [livejournal.com profile] grey_bard wrote a little fic for the Trek Novel Fest called "Species Diversity and You". I was asked if I would be interested in making a fanfilm version of the tale, to which I thought to myself--

HELL YEA I WILL.

We unveiled it at the Star Trek Halloween party we threw last night--and now it's finally up for the rest of you to view! XD


Species Diversity and You: A Sexual Safety Presentation
Rating: Probably would be PG-13 if the MPAA rated fanfilms, which it doesn't, thank god.
Warnings: Innuendo, humor and mild subversiveness
Spoilers: Passing reference to an element of the Enterprise episode "Cogenitor"
Summary: A presentation from Starfleet Medical's Sexual Safety program, presented by excessively earnest representatives.

Species Diversity and You: A Sexual Safety Presentation.

By Antonella Inserra and A. Bertram Wilberforce

From the story by Grey Bard

A friend of mine who shall go unnamed just linked me to a fanfic. A fanfic for thatguywiththeglasses.com. A fanfic with sex pollen.

One of the pairings is Nostalgia Chick/BFF Nella.

Guys.

YOU GUYS.

THERE'S FIC.

FIC.

OF NOSTALGIA CHICK/BFF NELLA ON SEX POLLEN.

...AND THE WRITER APPEARS TO THINK I HAVE SOME SERIOUS SEXUAL PROWESS.

.......I'M A LITTLE GOBSMACKED GUYS.


I'M JUST GOING TO KEEP GIGGLING UNCOMFORTABLY AT MY DESK AT WORK, M'KAY?


EDIT OF FLAIL: FISH ON A STICK, DON'T GO AND TELL THE AUTHOR I FOUND IT!!! THAT'S JUST EMBARRASSING.

EDIT OF "ON THE OTHER HAND": As people have been pointing out, in the fic BFF Nella calls up the local evil scientist to be all like, "WTF's going on, mate?", and freaks out about the whole situation being non-consensual. Until she's reassured 'no, they're just horny, not brainwashed.' Then sexual prowess continues.

THAT'S RIGHT. BFF NELLA PUTS THE "SENSUAL" IN "CONSENSUAL".

EDIT OF 'MACRO OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN' (AND THANKS TO [livejournal.com profile] wheres_walnut:
Yoinked from [livejournal.com profile] pippie_poppins:

Reply to this post by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of youfive words that I hope will make me learn more about you. Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

My 5 words: Shiny Objects, Laundry, Piece of the Action, Beaches, and Stars )

STILL re-writing my idea for my retro TV/Movie video review idea. I'm trying to write a fun introductory skit, so I can explain what I'm reviewing and why I'm reviewing it in a truly hammy and (hopefully!) entertaining manner. Also, trying to write something based on where I think I can film it and who I think I can drag along in this venture as other characters...who wouldn't want to be a character in a kitschy and campy vaguely secret!organization! spoof?! And really, who wouldn't want to watch the "Adventures" of Agent Anachronism as she saves the Free World one retro-review at a time?

...Well, back to the drawing board. And to this episode of "Man from UNCLE". Research is SO time consuming. ;)
THE NEW PROFESSOR LAYTON GAME FOR THE NINTENDO DS IS BEING RELEASED TODAY!!!

I LOVED the first game. A puzzle-loving, top-hat wearing archaeologist as the main character? Hell Yes. A fun story line with a ton of brain-teasing puzzles and logic problems? BOOM BABY. THANK YOU JAPAN, MAY I HAVE ANOTHER!

back when I was working at the CRM firm from HELL, warm fuzzy thoughts of this game got me through my day, especially when I'd be stumped over a particularly difficult artifact to identify.

VISUAL INTERPRETATION OF MY WORK DAYS APPROXIMATELY ONE YEAR AGO. Y, HALLO THAR, ARTISTIC LIBERTIES.

AND NOW, FINALLY, THE SECOND GAME WILL BE MINE. MWHA. MWHAHAHAH. MWHAHAHAHAHA.

I havE been tickled pink over the subway ads for it as well. There are only 20-30 year old women represented in the ads. Target audience, much?

In other news, I've been working on the "Agent Anachronism" review idea I've been kicking around my head since Lindsay mentioned there was interest in having more BFF Nella at thatguywiththeglasses.com. I'm trying to write an skit introduction to the "character" and the purpose of the reviews...but I need a sidekick, at least for the intro. Someone to give me a hand/roll eyes at me while I'm beating my head against a wall, trying to figure out what retro show/movie to review first.

So I emailed my brother, pitched the idea to him, that sort of thing. His response?

"I do not wish to take partake in your outrageous experimentation of this "skit" in which the implications could be disastrous . In other words, maybe!"

I KNEW I COULD COUNT ON MY BRO WHEN I REALLY NEEDED HIM.

THE INTERNET IS NOT READY FOR THE INSERRA SIBLING TAG TEAM.
So, I was at [livejournal.com profile] mirroriste's place today after work; watching Trek, knitting, and generally hanging out. We were chatting about this and that, and in ANOTHER case of my world being AN INSANELY SMALL ONE, I came to the startling realization that I had run into her once LONG before [livejournal.com profile] ontd_startrek.

The Time was Summer 2008. The place was NY Comic Con. I was still living with my parents on Long Island, and that morning I had made plans for a lazy summer's day, one of pool and gardening. That was when I got the call from Lindsay; "If you can get to the Javits Center by 3 pm and be my camera bitch, I can get you into Comic Con for free. You could catch the Hellboy 2 panel!" said she.

With a quick shower and a mad dash to the train station, I made it to Comic Con in time! And after enjoying various panels and things, I paid my pound of flesh by being Lindsay's camera whore as she video-interviewed various people about their cosplay costumes for a website she was interning for.

[livejournal.com profile] mirroriste WAS ONE OF THE PEOPLE WE INTERVIEWED.

For the LIFE of me, I had been trying to figure out WHY her voice and face were so familiar! But as we discussed our respective fandom histories, she brought up that she had been in the Kingdom Hearts fandom, and a little light bulb went off in my head.

"Do you cosplay?" I asked. Yes. "Did you go to Comic Con?" Yep! "...Were you King Mickey Organization XIII style?" ...Yea?

THE INTERVIEW'S EMBEDDED BELOW! GO AND WATCH!! Clips of her are interspersed within the vid!!



OMG THE HELL? FANDOM DESTINY, STOP FUCKING WITH ME.
Free lunch at work today compliments of leftovers from a conference meeting! WOOHOO!

Of course, as this IS my workplace, one can’t have free food without SOME sort of silly drama:

Me: Why are you still eating that? You’re allergic to artichoke.
Lady!Boss: I know but I can’t stop! I had to get seconds. It’s so GOOOOD.
Me: Your bottom lip is swollen. Can you even feel your lips anymore?
Lady!Boss: *guilty*…Shit, no.
Me: If you end up needing an epi-pen, I swear to God—
Lady!Boss: I don’t care! At least I’ll die happy!
Me: No, you’ll be happy until about a minute before you black out, with me standing over you saying "DAMNIT, C—"

~*~

In other news, I'm RIDICULOUSLY excited about the sketches Lindsay and I filmed on Tuesday. RIDICULOUSLY. They are going to Lulz-tastic.

That is all.
ink_n_imp: (ZIM! love)
PEOPLE ARE SHIPPING THE NOSTALGIA CHICK AND BFF NELLA*. IT'S ON TVTROPES.COM, LOOKIT!!:


"I can't be the only one who ships the Nostalgia Chick and her BFF Nella, right?'

*Well, the first time this troper first stumbled upon the site and watched the Nostalgia Chick's review of Labyrinth, her first thought was that Lindsey and Nella were a couple. Now she's just confused."

SEE! Scroll to 'Shipping'!



I'M...I'M BEING FEMSLASHED. WITH MY ETERNAL ROOMMATE. MY LULZ OVER THIS IS BOTTOMLESS. IT WAS THE APRON IN THE LABYRINTH REVIEW, WASN'T IT? AND MY OFFERING HER A VARIETY OF PHALLIC EUPHEMISMS, WASN'T IT?

OUR LOVE IS SO...BELEAGUERED.



Wow, Internet, just...WOW. Thank you for doing EXACTLY what I half expected you to do deep in the darkest part of my soul**, and yet somehow, STILL didn't see coming.


Lindsay's already assured me I can look forward to fanart in the near future, as supposedly, this is how these things ROLL.

I just know they won't get my hips right.




*AKA me.

**The part that found hobbit porn at FAR FAR too tender an age.
