Every week Riese e-mails me a list of images/graphics she needs for her Real L Word recaps. These are some of those very well-defined requests.
1. also can you make Sajdah’s face on a Big Gulp
2. Cori & Kacy ON THE MOTHERFUCKING COUCH AGAIN
3. all the facial expressions she makes instead of saying words
4. graphic of a big ol bag of heroine?
5. Hello boobs
6. Can you compare Romi’s interview in this scene to another scene because she looks way tanner?
7. Mel is the lovechild of Samantha Ronson & Lindsay Lohan, illustrate this with a graphic
8. If you could take a ‘cap of Claire talking about that magazine stuff and then draw all over it to express how it makes me feel, I’d like that
9. screencap of chris crocker with LEAVE WHITNEY ALONE written on it
10. (GRAPHIC –?) – I don’t know what i was thinking when I wrote that
11. somehow superimpose the skittles “taste the rainbow” on top of sajdah and that girl for when sajdah says the thing about the “rainbow coalition.”
12. Shot of the tampons
13. make sure to get lots of claire crazyface
14. also in the style of last year’s LA FASHION WEEK graphic could you make a graphic that says Penis Penis Man Man Sperm Man Penis Sperm Penis Penis, etc etc over and over again
15. OH MY GOD IT’S ROMI
16. “The Unicorn Couple” – a graphic where Cori & Kacy are unicorns
17. Claire handling Vivian like a monkey
18. On her knees doing a that’s what she said
19. also i need a photo from episode 101 of the l word where bette & tina are in the doctors office and to get knocked up and like bette has to go down on her or whatever and it should say NOT LIKE THIS on it
20. Romi’s evolving alternative lifestyle haircut (v. important graphic) DO THIS ONE FIRST
21. Journal in the bed (maybe do one with lights and stars coming out of it)
22. what happened next? i Can’t remember just get some good screenshots of ittt
23. can you make a few more of sara doing her crazy sexy dance at the music video?
24. i have attached 4 pictures can you make each one of them saying “that’s what she said” in a speech bubble?
25. do a few graphics where we’re like “WHO IS IT” and then the graphic will be of the door and someone standing in front of it like the Kool-Aid guy, or Jenny Schecter, or the Grim Reaper or SHANE. What if it had been Shane??!!!!?!?!
26. GOd i don’t know, maybe a unicorn
grace made graphics are the best thing on the block, i just hope these aren’t taking a toll on your soul
Hilarious on so many levels!
this made me realize that intern grace is a very special person and deserve lots of ice cream.
I’m just doing what I’m told because that’s what interns do. Riese is the one who puts in all the leg work.
I appreciate all the nice things you guys said, though! I love you all.
Good thing Intern Grace took Riese I and II in highschool.
I wish my school had offered those.
Indentured servitude is funny!
seems like you’re doing a good job, intern grace!
OMG Hannah Hart at the door: “Butter yo shit!”
YES. BEST DOOR SURPRISE EVER.
that just made me think that paula deen would be at the door.
HEY YALL HOW BET YOU JESS LET ME BUTTER YO SCISSORS YALL
Here I made this for you.
this tumblr is so good.
The best tumblr. Thank you Intern Grace!
Oh my god lol
Best use of a “random” button ever.
best freaking thing ever.
dumbledore is my favorite
I think we all have a lot of feelings to draw on a screencap of Claire talking about that magazine. I don’t know if it could possibly be made big enough, even if only included were the “STFU!” submissions.
also, also. You are the queen of graphics.
Also you’re amazingtastic because this sounds time consuming/exhausting/hard and the trlw recaps are hilarious.
We can all experience our dream job vicariously through Intern Grace!
i spelled “heroin” wrong
I notice many people do. And I don’t know why, or why it bothers me.
If I asked in a formspring why so many people spell heroin incorrectly it would never see the light of day, so I guess I’ll never know.
i think in this case the problem is that i send grace the list directly after watching the episode — which is ~11pm on a sunday night, and chances are good — 100% chance, actually, that I am somehow substance-altered because watching TRLW sober is just really depressing. so um, i get a little sloppayyyy
I don’t think I’d be able to sit through that show sober. One needs to be numb to watch that.
In the words of Liz Lemon, “You are my heroine. And by heroine, I mean ‘lady hero.’ I don’t mean I want to inject you and listen to jazz.”
It’s cool, it makes me think of a giant bag (like Santa’s never-ending bag of gifts) with a heroine for every situation in it. Oh gotta fight someone, up pops Mulan. Gotta keep a wolf from killing grandma, up pops Little Red Riding Hood.
Could you buy a bag of heroine(s)? Isn’t that human trafficking?
The “who’s at the door” series is an instaclassic.
‘Pinoe at the door made my life Intern Grace. You are forever in my heart!
intern grace: your dedication to this fine site has made me love it even more, and i was a pretty big fan to begin with sooooo. keep cappin’ those screens. your hilarious work here is much appreciated.
I seriously hope she’s getting paid…
Lmao, excellent. The who’s at the door montage was brilliant…also, did anybody else die at the graphic of Romi and Kelsey “Plenty of Space”? bahhaha. Thanks Grace.
me: can i ask you to do a thing or are you calling in sick today (which is totally totally totally ok if you are)
Grace: i am not calling in sick
what do you need
me: a picture of outer space with kelsey on one side and romi on the other and the word PLENTY OF SPACE in the middle
Grace: mhmm i can do that
me: thank you
me: omg these who’s at the door things are priceless
Grace: haha i’m glad you like them
if you think of any more, they don’t take very long to do
me: ilene chaiken
[ 8 minutes later]
or emily fields
[15 minutes later]
can you put a speech bubble next to ilene chaiken that says, “Hi, I’m Ilene Chaiken, director, producer and executive creator of Showtime’s Lowest-Rated Series The Real L Word”
Grace: in her door picture?
Grace: no problem
So amazing. Grace & Riese, excellent duo.
RT @ grrreen: remember when we sent @ gracecellis a giant bag of food from jason’s deli because she was sick and no one would feed her? that was special.
Omigoddddd tumblr is best thing ever!! I’m glad we could help =D
i like your work, intern grace
grace. your graphics bring all the ladies to the yard.
Very LOLable, intern Grace
priceless. keep at it.
BEST BOSS EVER. I would love to get project requests like this. Instead… selling my soul to advertising. Whoop whoooooop.
AH intern grace captions are the best!
