Interview with Jessii Vee from @kleffnotes

Rounding out our interviews with the cast of Running With Violet, I had the chance to talk with Jessii Vee. The actor and YouTuber plays Frankee, the slightly witchy babysitter from Season One who has started to find new skills this season. She was one of my favorite characters in the first season and I was excited to see she was back for more one liners and epic levels of snark. I got to chat with her about this new season and what she’s up to outside of the series. Continue reading “Interview with Jessii Vee from @kleffnotes”

Interview with Andrea Bang from @kleffnotes

Andrea Bang is a new addition to Running With Violet, the YouTube series we are featuring this week in connection to the drop of the second season.

You might recognize her from the Canadian comedy, Kim’s Convenience, and she has a recent film releasing soon. Luce, a feature that focuses on a married couple and their thoughts on their marriage has an all star cast, and releases broadly on August 9th. I chatted not just Running With Violet, but everything else Andrea Bang has going on. Continue reading “Interview with Andrea Bang from @kleffnotes”

Running With Violet Season 2 Debut Feature from @kleffnotes

Running With Violet is one of the most unexpected series I have ever had the pleasure of watching. I am a bit slow to the scene for this one, but this female focused series from Rebecca Davey and Marie-Claire Marcotte has a little bit of everything all tied together in a perfect package of drugs, death, and comedy. With the second season releasing today I wanted to highlight a little bit about the first season and give some spoiler free thoughts on what you can expect in Season 2.

Insomnia Web Series Review from @kleffnotes

The darkly comedic web series Insomnia drops the final episode of the limited series today and to get you ready for the final episodes I wanted to share my thoughts on the show so far. Set in New York City, Insomnia follows bisexual, Indian American writer Nikhil Sharma as he tries to figure out his life. Shown through single camera, the story follows Nikhil in his secret work as a male escort where he is confronted by issues of race, sexuality, loneliness, and just general lack of sleep. The series was inspired by a brief real life encounter when creator and star of the show, Vishaal Reddy, was asked by someone in NYC if he had ever considered being an escort. After seeing a lack of positive representation in the media he took this idea and evolved it into Insomnia. Continue reading “Insomnia Web Series Review from @kleffnotes”

The Bi Line: Barbelle S2 Follow-Up and Bi in Bitter S2 from @kleffnotes

This week I am delving into some web series that I have already previously discussed in some capacity on The Nerdy Girl Express. I absolutely adore both I Put the Bi in Bitter and Barbelle, both of which I covered in Fangirl Freakouts videos, and second seasons of both released earlier this year. I know I’m a bit behind in talking about them, especially since I covered roughly the first half of Barbelle Season Two a while back, but I am here and ready to gush. Continue reading “The Bi Line: Barbelle S2 Follow-Up and Bi in Bitter S2 from @kleffnotes”

Funny Married Stuff Interview with Lony’e and Peyton Perrine from @kleffnotes

Lony’e and Peyton Perrine were tired of seeing negative representations of married life in the media and decided that they wanted to create something to highlight the positives. Out of this came Funny Married Stuff, a short form comedy that is up for Emmy consideration. This sketch comedy has already gained national attention by winning awards at a variety of festivals including Best Sketch Comedy at the Miami Web Fest and Best Web Series at the Philadelphia Independent Film Awards. I had the chance to ask the Perrines some questions about the series and also a bit about tips for a happy marriage. Continue reading “Funny Married Stuff Interview with Lony’e and Peyton Perrine from @kleffnotes”

Interview with Supinder Wraich from @kleffnotes

Supinder Wraich began performing at a young age and received her big break when she appeared in the award winning web series Guidestones. Her latest project, The 410, debuted this month on CBC Gem and I had the chance to talk with her about her lead role. Wraich is not only stars in the series, but she also wrote it and this isn’t the first time she has worn many hats in her work. Continue reading “Interview with Supinder Wraich from @kleffnotes”

The Bi Line: Return to Silas with the Carmilla Novel from @kleffnotes

It has felt like centuries, but new Carmilla content is finally here! For those of you at ClexaCon this year you might have been able to pick up an early copy of the novel either from the Carmilla booth or from some of the Carmilla themed panels and meet ups. I was able to snag a copy from the booth and it took all kinds of restraint not to rush off to my room and read the book while I was still in Las Vegas. Once I got back to my small Ohio town I hunkered down and read the entire book in one go, which shows how much my restraint wavered once I had any free time. Continue reading “The Bi Line: Return to Silas with the Carmilla Novel from @kleffnotes”

Fangirl Freakouts: Barbelle S2 Eps 1-6 ( @BARBELLE_SERIES @KindaTV_ ) from @kleffnotes

I filmed this video before the Barbelle finale and am focusing on episodes 1 through 6, since those were the episodes out when I did get a chance to film. I am planning a follow-up video to chat the rest of the season a little bit later in May. In case you haven’t seen it I also had a chance to ask the creators and stars of the show, Gwenlyn Cumyn and Karen Knox, some questions about everything Season Two. While this isn’t technically a My Kinda Recaps, think of it as a bit of a blast from the past. Continue reading “Fangirl Freakouts: Barbelle S2 Eps 1-6 ( @BARBELLE_SERIES @KindaTV_ ) from @kleffnotes”
