    in Pop Culture

    If you haven't heard of "Dear White People" then you've obviously been on a remote island somewhere.
    From the mind of writer/producer/director Justin Simien and producer Lena Waithe comes a concept that has created an internet firestorm.  What started out as an online campaign to raise $25K to produce a feature film, has not only raised $40K, but also has the media buzzing about this filmmaking team.  In just one month, the trailer for "Dear White People" received 705,000 views.  It's also opened up a dialgue about race relations in a supposed 'post racial' America.

    Interview #1 - Devil Wears Prada authors Grdnofevrythng and Telanu Speak Out

    in Movies

    This show marks my first effort at conducting an actual interview as we move away from the world of animation and to the world of living, breathing actors. Despite having nothing that could be considered canon femslash content, in just a few years the film version of The Devil Wears Prada has spawned a hugely successful following of the Miranda Priestly/Andrea Sachs femslash pairing. And my two special guests are partly responsible for that. First we'll talk to Grdnofevrythng, moderator for the DWP femslash community on Livejournal and the successful veteran fanfic author of "No Matter the Miles", about her inspirations (and her workload!). Later, I'll be reading out loud from the transcript of the interview I conducted earlier with Telanu, known better on LJ as Somniesperus, the hugely popular pioneering author of such fics as "She Likes a Prizefight" and "Truth and Measure" who was one of the very first put high-quality DWP femslash on the Net. Between the two of them, you'll learn everything about what makes this couple work.
