The Girls

Hang out with the girls of "Girls"

Are you a Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna, or Jessa?

As if we didn’t already compare ourselves and friends even to the characters- although a part of me definitely wishes I was a Jessa, I’m pretty much and even mix between Hannah and Shoshanna- now we can spend time debating which color suits us better.  That’s right, the answer to all our prayers have been answered.  Or at least all of our materialistic, shallow prayers.

Deborah Lippman has recently worked with Lena to create a nail polish line specifically for our practically BFF’s and favorite characters of “Girls.”  Maybe you’re a Jessa but you’re feeling fun and flirty? No problem, you can switch it up and try on Shoshanna for the week with the complete set including colors: HANNAH Hapless Hunter Green, MARNIE Prim And Proper Pink, SHOSHANNA Virtuous Vivid Violet, JESSA Bohemian Burgundy.

Nylon Screencast

Without further adieu or any further interruptions, I present my screencast:

http://screencast.com/t/A6HCUOVtfcP

Other than the fact that I’m extremely self conscious about my voice, I also found it somewhat difficult to talk to a computer…by myself…  First, I had to make sure I was home alone or some of my housemates might think I was crazy or for fear that they might intentionally try to distract me or cause any interruptions.  I couldn’t even swallow without it sounding so weird let alone any background noise but be distracting.  It was more difficult starting it than anything.  I had about 20 different introductions before I self selected which one I thought was the least creepy.  I couldn’t even count how many times I started over.  The hardest part is that it’s just straight talking for 5 minutes and you can’t stop to have a thought or else there’s a weird pause and you lose your place and then it just gets awkwardly silent.  I’m not one to talk in front of huge group of people or an audience (which is why I loathe presentations because I get really uncomfortable and either start stuttering or start rambling about nothing that makes sense and make everyone in the audience feel uncomfortable just watching me) and that is basically why I pretty much wrote out my entire speech after my 10th failed attempt.  I don’t know if this is something I’m supposed to admit or tell anyone, but whatever.  I also should probably take some public speaking courses but I would definitely have to be literally threatened and forced against my will before I end up in one.

And as for who I think would most value this skill of screencasting it would either be creepy gamer people or weird people on YouTube that pretty much have nothing better to do than to seem fancy and judge other people’s blogs (no offense).  I just don’t get what’s the big deal, I mean it’s helpful for instructional videos, but other than that I don’t think any one actually values my opinions or cares about what I, or anyone else thinks, unless they’re maybe Oprah or Ellen or Justin Timberlake.

Dancing on My Silver Lining

https://soundcloud.com/nwong06/blog-commercial

This blog should not cause me this must stress as it already has.  I really didn’t understand how to work any of this technology- as I explained before I’m not very good at the internet or have good tech savvy skills, if not any- so it was pretty much close to impossible for me to try and make a commercial.  I’m also really uncomfortable with my voice and the way it sounds so that was kind of an uphill battle that I had to face and conquer all by myself.  High fives all around.

Other than having and getting through my own trials and tribulations, figuring out which songs to put together and how to cut them and face them into each other- when I finally figured out how to.  The song I used for the intro was “Silver Lining” by Rilo Kiley and my outro song I used was “Dancing On My Own” by Robyn.  Not only so I really love these songs, but these songs have also played during significant scenes in “Girls”.  They symbolize just what the show is about and how it incorporates with their lives so I thought it’d be a perfect fit to put them together.
