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”
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. She plays Samantha, who is a bit of a party girl with some secrets behind her bubbly personality. 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, the hit YouTube series, just returned for a second season with more drama and unexpected drug dealing. I had the opportunity to ask one of the stars and creators, Marie Claire Marcotte, who plays Miranda. If you haven’t checked out this great series yet you are definitely missing out, check out my interview and then get to watching Season Two right away. Continue reading “Interview with Marie Claire Marcotte 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.

…And just like that, the music scene of 2019 has been revived and stabilized.
Following up with their 2017 AWKOHAWNOH (All We Know Of Heaven, All We Need Of Hell) sophomore album, PVRIS has renovated their look, sound, and record deal. Once signed to Rise Records, the group has a new deal with Warner Music. I personally believe this will give them more space to grow into their defining sound, as well as give them a bigger platform and spotlight, both well deserved and earned.
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”
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”
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”
Sam and Pat are Depressed season two is well under way and while I previously did a feature focusing on the new season, I wanted to spend a little more time delving into some elements, primarily guests, that I didn’t in that article. This series is a such an important work, not only for the focus it gives to mental health, but also for the inclusion of an asexual character. You can find Sam and Pat Are Depressed on Stareable and Seeka TV now, but soon it’ll be on YouTube. Continue reading “Fangirl Freakouts: Sam and Pat Are Depressed ( @_UndeadBurrito_ ) from @kleffnotes”
ClexaCon 2019 is over and we’ve all left the bright lights of Las Vegas behind to return to our normal every day lives. Typically after a major trip or event I film a recap video, but with the number of topics connected to this year’s ClexaCon I believe an article will be a better vessel for covering everything in a clear and detailed way. This is not a short article and does include some more personal elements to the weekend outside of the convention itself. Continue reading “#ClexaCon 2019 Recap ( @ClexaCon )from @kleffnotes”
