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.

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.

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.

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.

Fangirl Freakouts: Sam and Pat Are Depressed ( @_UndeadBurrito_ ) 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.

The Bi Line: What I’m Looking Forward To at @ClexaCon Feature from @kleffnotes

This is my third year going to ClexaCon and the second time that I will be going as press. Last year was the first time my girlfriend, Krista, and I went to ClexaCon together. We met there in 2017, but since we were going as a couple last year we did a lot of intense scheduling and tried to do as much as we could. While some people can survive that I wound up burning myself out trying to do everything I thought I needed to do as press and Krista and I had tried to cram in a lot. This year, while I will still be doing coverage, we’ve decided to tone things down a bit so that we don’t wind up with post con burnout like last year.

I had the chance to ask Karen Knox and Gwenlyn Cumyn a bunch of questions about the new season as well as some of their other projects. Even if you haven’t checked out this series yet, though you need to get on it, this interview will just bring delight to your day.

Fangirl Freakouts: Queering ( @QueeringWeb ) @ClexaCon Feature from @kleffnotes

Harper is moving on after a toxic nine year relationship, but is shocked when her mom reveals she has come out publicly as bisexual. Queering is an emotional work that examines biphobia as well as the struggles of coming out. This series spoke to me in such a powerful way and I am excited to know it is part of the ClexaCon film festival this year.
