I’m late to the game but glad to be here.
Alexandra and I come clean with the lies we tell all of the time. Also: I give my end of life demands. And they are many.
A new Zooey video! In this very holiday edition, Ms. Deschanel tackles her fears.
This is the next episode in our web series about 3 girls trying to foment revolution in NYC. Even revolutions can get bogged down in committee.
The revolution gives you: The Next Episode. Watch as Alexandra beats all the odds to begin the meeting.
The Ladies of The Revolution
I have been told this by many a girl. I LOVE YOU. Whether they loved, hated, or felt indifferently towards me. Whether drunk, high, or puking at the window of a cab. In a text, over brunch, on my Facebook wall. As a member of the society of girls, I have had the high pleasure of being told this by ladies who most certainly do not, nor will ever, love me.
Now, I know that “Shit White Girls Say” has already trode (making that a word- NOW) this hyperbolic ground but - ALLOW me to say the following: I don’t care if you do “love” me or just “like” me - but when someone says they LOVE me - 9 times out of ten - it feels great! Girls get all kinds of flack for over-emoting, over-emphasizing, going over-board: seeming fake. And I just want to be one voice that says: while I am smart enough to decipher real from fake, I’m also just needy enough to perk up when told I am loved. EVEN if it’s just a “<3 YOU. ” So YOU DO YOU girl-i-just-met-wearing-all-spanx-crying-about-ex-over-mimosa. I will proudly pose in as many pout-y pictures as your iPhone will hold.
The only people I don’t want to tell me that they “love me” are the homeless. All of them.
This is the second episode of a web series I co-wrote and co-directed (a whole lot of co-ing going on here), I <3 REVOLUTION. In it, the most level headed of the insurgent/extremist girls explains what the revolution is all about and it has NOTHING to do with Karl Marx or the artist Bono. I love the way Alice takes on a Palin-esque tone in this piece and the way the jump cutting highlights just how sutured the revolution is.
I have spent 2 years working on this web series (most of that time was just dithering/unable to make choices) BUT NOW it is finally being released into the world! Fun facts: I barely recognize myself in the video!, this was filmed in The Forbes building (!!!- such an amazing playground), this really does predate Occupy. We’ll be putting out a new episode every Wed. for the next month! Written/directed/performed in collaboration with my <3s, Alice Winslow and Alexandra Panzer. May the three of us unite for always.
OUR FIRST EPISODE OF DOCUMENTING OUR MOVEMENT. PLEASE WATCH FOR YOUR OWN GOOD.
Girls, Young Women and Middle-Aged Mothers,
If you were wondering what would be a good thing to want to smell like, here is your answer: The Woman Behind the Almost-Man.
Let ME tell you what you SHOULD want to smell like: THE SMOLDERING ASHES OF THE OLD WORLD ORDER.
Justin Bieber AND Macy’s are already sworn enemies of the revolution (1/31/10 and 5/13/97, respectively), otherwise this would certainly merit a citation for VIOLATION of the Perfume Defense System’s Code of Ethics, as regulated by Chief Fragrance Minister, Tara Schuster.
