If depression was a musical

This is a bop

Okay so I watched this for the millionth time (because it is a MOOD) and I got to recognizing this girl’s face

so I decided to look her up and it turns out that this is a woman named Lauren Lopez and that this musical was put on by Starkid, the same group that did A Very Potter Musical.

So far, my suspicions were matching up with the direction my research had been going in, so I look up who Lauren played in AVPM and y’all 

This was EXACTLY who I thought she was.

Yo lauren lopez is ICONIC

She’s also the voice of the computer in Ashley Clement’s new SONA series! 🙂👍

A very special thank you to my Patreon supporters for making the project possible, and to the YouTube Space LA. 

Please reblog and share! This was a labor of love and we’d like to share it with as many people as possible. Thank you for watching. 

I liked this. I’ve been a fan of sci fi since I was young, so it’s fun to see people I’m a fan of and haven’t previously associated with it doing it.

Things I especially liked:

  • the look of it
  • MK getting to do some serious actor-y stuff (I believe that’s the technical term)
  • Ashley laying on the Shakespearean-trained creepiness
  • just seeing the two of them together again in something so not-LBD

There have been some really good sci fi films lately (along with plenty of not-so-good). I really liked Edge of Tomorrow and Interstellar, for example. In terms of lower-budget/fewer-effects films, I’m a fan of Shane Carruth’s Primer and Upstream Color, and Duncan Jones’ Moon and Source Code. Spore reminded me a little of those. I realize it’s a much smaller thing, but I like how it worked around its limitations to make something that was cool and spooky and hinted at a larger world.

Thanks to everyone who made it happen.

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014



Of the original four, I guess the only one I don’t think I’ve seen in anything else post-LBD is Ashley. Which seems kind of surprising, given how awesome she was. Though maybe it’s in part a reflection of lag times, and the fact that she was pretty much booked solid for a year, where the other actresses had time to do other work in the meantime that might just now be coming to fruition?

Or maybe she took a well-deserved break after LBD. Or maybe she’s pursuing other goals besides appearing randomly on my TV. Or maybe the universe is cruel and unfair. Or maybe… something else. I dunno.

Today, I as I walked into the grocery store, some solicitor was outside trying to get signatures or money. I don’t even know what his cause was, because the first thing he said to me as I got closer was, “You dropped your smile.”

There are very few things in the world that make my blood boil like…

One of the benefits of living in a truly-ubiquitous-surveillance state — which we don’t, and for which I’m grateful, but if we did — would be that I could hold out the hope that this exchange was recorded, so I could watch it. Because I’m pretty sure I would be a fan of that.

A note on stories

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013


I get so many wonderful messages telling me what The Lizzie Bennet Diaries has meant to people. They often include telling me that they’ve been going through a hard thing – a big change in their lives, a loved one’s illness, depression – and that The LBD has been a source of comfort and happiness; that these characters have become their friends. These notes often include something like “I know that sounds silly…”

I just want to say that does not sound sillyThat is why storytelling and art have been a part of human tradition for as long as we have records of humans. I absolutely have shows, movies, plays, and books in my life that are my friends, that got me through terrible times, that taught me about myself and my relationships to the people and world around me.

We need stories. Stories are important. There is nothing silly or dumb about relating to them and feeling attached to them. They help us see ourselves and others in new ways. They help us feel our feelings. They make us laugh when we feel low. They help us realize dreams and conquer fears. They give us a fuller understanding of the world.

We should never diminish the power of fictional stories. Do not apologize for being moved by movies, TV shows, theater, art, books, or even a webseries that puts out 5 minute episodes twice a week. Jump into them whole-heartedly and let them transform you. Let them be your friends. Why not? They want to be yours.

I am honored, more than I can ever express, to have been a part of something that has affected people’s lives, because I understand what that means. I am deeply, deeply touched that our show has become what it is, and that it’s made people feel things that have impacted them. It hasn’t been perfect, but nothing is, and the journey we’ve all taken together has been one I’ll never forget. 

I’ve written about it before (like here, last October) so I won’t repeat what I wrote then. But Ashley was the reason LBD succeeded. Obviously there were many other elements that contributed. It was a team effort, and the team was more than the sum of its parts. But Ashley’s ability to carry the show was the single most important factor.

Watching the seahorse Q&A with her and Daniel, it was remarkable to me how she rattled of references to episodes by number. She wasn’t showing off; she was just giving a window into how she thinks. And the slightly scary fact is that she has a complete catalog of all 100 episodes of the main show (and probably a working knowledge of the spinoffs) in her head at all times.

Think about that. Think about her ability to memorize 50 pages of script in a couple of days, such that she arrived on set each month ready to shoot eight or ten episodes flawlessly. Think about how, when she does interviews, she speaks off the cuff in well-formed thoughts and complete sentences.

Or read this post I’m reblogging here.

What Ashley has is special. Actors aren’t known for their intelligence, though the stereotype of “dumb actors” is unfair. But Ashley’s obviously a genius. And I don’t mean that in the gushing Tumblr sense; I mean it literally. (Gah! Literally literally, not Tumblr literally.) And she isn’t just intelligent. She has drive and perseverance. She sets high goals, then puts in the work required to reach them. It’s a rare combination.

Ashley could have succeeded at anything she chose to do. That she chose to create stories and share them with an audience is an awesome gift, one that every LBD fan should be grateful for. I know I am.

Steph meditates on the mystical, powerful spirit of nature and other nonsense.

Ashley, go home. You’re high.

I pray you never have to do things like this again.

This feels like the Christopher Guest mockumentary I somehow never saw.
