Behind the Scenes VIDEO #3: 10 Great Ideas & 1 AWESOME Idea

Picture 3In our last Behind the Scenes Video we asked What is Autostraddle? Two weeks ago we talked about TRACK STOP, Alex tried to “set the scene,” Tinkerbell was mauled by a viscous beast, and Riese found a little Buddha.

This week, we have a lot of really, really, really good ideas, like about getting Brooke a lap dance, people taking their shirts off, and hanging out with other lesbians in a pack. Starring Riese, Alex, Brooke, Tess, Haviland, and our friends Rocco & Rachel from Wingspan Pictures who are in fact responsible for all this gratuitous filming nonsense. Are we running out of funny footage? Perhaps. But after this one, there’s actually at least two more pretty effin’ funny segments to follow!

      1. Agreed.

      2. The very first clip when Riese looks at the camera and then it goes back to A;ex reminds me of The Office. Is that just me?

      3. I enjoy A;ex’s DARE shirt!

      4. Lists FTW!

    I find things in list format very comforting. Like a lot. Like maybe too much. Combining a list of items, LADY FUCKING GAGA, and your wonderful faces makes me extremely happy.

    I’m sure this would be the most amazing thing I ever spent 144s on if I could hear a word of what you were saying. I wish there was a “closed captions”-version of this. Or you could all start speaking in sign language.

    Headphones people. Plug them into your laptop, speakers, directly into your tower, etc. and it’s a volume-too-low cure-all. You can always hear everything through a handy set of headphones. I promise.
