You know how some people, like musician/actress Leisha Hailey and photographer/actress Jennifer Beals, have many talents? I’m one of those people. In addition to my superior writing skills, I’m handy with a vodka bottle, handy w/my own two hands and handy being handsy. Furthermore, I’ve got a knack for guetsbianisim, lesbianism and celesbianism. But most importantly, I’ve got the mistaken impression that I know how to edit videos and use iMovie. iMovie, p.s., is bunk, I hate it, it breaks every ten seconds, just like Alice’s heart, Jenny’s psychosis and Shane’s hymen.
No, but seriously. JK, I’m never serious. We’re so excited about trashing the inevitably unbearable fifth season of “The L Word,” we’ve already filmed about four years worth of footage for our upcoming VLOGS, which we’ll be creating to accompany my wildly popular written recaps. By “wildly popular” I mean slightly more popular than Haviland was in middle school. Let this be a lesson to you: the meek shall inherit the earth.
So, today I’ve thrown together a little “trailer” for y’all to enjoy AND Carly’s put together our parody of the best scene of Season Four, the phone convo, AND seriously the best thing to ever happen to web-television is Carly’s blooper reel of that scene, which is also below. I will be turning all our footage — there’s tons more– into butterflies/vlogs over the next five weeks as we all wait for the new season to start. We did a few scenes, like the Mark/Jenny/Shane bobbing-for-apples scene and the Helena/Bette/Tina S2-finale scene, but there’s so much more than you see here, just like how there’s more to my personality than you see here. Carly and I also subjected Haviland to all three of the L Word Trailers we’ve already seen several times and possibly memorized (and totally recapped). Like; I’m smart, I swear. I have another blog, I quote poetry.
Speaking of multiple talents, I’ve got a big meeting on Friday to discuss the hot boyshorts we’re designing for your purchasing pleasure, and boy, am I excited, I can’t hardly wait. Seriously, I can’t, it’s ridiculous/adorable. Enough about boys, let’s watch a movie.
So, why’d I talk about multiple talents? ‘Cause Carlytron‘s also multitalented but her main talent is film specifically editing & directing, and so she was able to put her go-go-gadget skills to work for our parody of the “Luck be a Lady” scene, where they all talk on the phone about drama. I’m like, Alice, get it? Like: bla bla bla. I LOL’ed until I cried, mostly at Samantha Acosta, who’s really at her finest in the bloopers reel, as you can see. See how Carly did that thing with the three boxes? That’s what friends are for. I just had a revelation about how if you think about it like, resume-wise, the three of us really are a perfect team. I mean, skill-wise. All we need is someone to carry our things, someone with big arms.
So, here we have it, Carlytron for AutoStraddle presents our parody of the ridiculous way that The L Word thinks we live:
AND NOW THE BLOOPERS REEL!
