High Fructose Zombies: Interview with David Phillips & Sarah Braly

Hey Fangirls!  A couple weeks back I was lucky enough to go to Special Edition: NYC and meet some absolutely lovely independent creators.  I think independent creators are some of the most amazing and inspiring people on the planet.  They make what they love, and to me, that’s beautiful.  Two of the individuals I met at SE:NYC were David Phillips and Sarah Braly.  Let me tell you, Fangirls, these folks really know how to catch an eye.  In a sea of grey and blue tables, their’s was neon green.  It was littered in lovely yet despicable cupcakes, and had some really intriguing comics on top.  So when my friends were looking for back issues that I wasn’t concerned with, I sneaked off to the High Fructose Zombies table.

Starkid Takes Manhattan

Hey Fangirls!  Last week was the fifth anniversary of Team Starkid’s A Very Potter Musical.  To me, that’s ridiculous.  Team Starkid is my second longest running fandom (after Harry Potter), so when they announced a concert to be performed the weekend after their anniversary, I lost my mind.  Of course we’d have to go; it was a necessity. So we prepare, and went!

A Starkid Spectacular: Twisted In Concert!

Hello you lovely Starkid Fangirls! “What?! You’re not Emily or one of the other usual writers?! Who is this biddy?” Well, Fangirl, let me quickly introduce myself. My name is Kristen, otherwise known on the interwebz as “Shut Up Kristen!” I’m a 21 year old Content Creator on the YouTubez, a master at the 140 character genre, and a nerd with a tumblr. So basically- your average Fangirl. But enough about me! Let’s get down to the nitty gritty and talk about the fabulous Starkid event I attended this week at 54 Below in NYC: Twisted in concert.

Quicksand Jack Interview

Hey Dikrats!  I was really lucky last month, to get to interview the creative team behind Quicksand Jack (the super cool comic written by the writers from Starkid Productions).  It took me waaaay too long to finish writing it up, but they’ve been really patient with me.  I can’t express how much of an honor it was to sit down for half an hour and talk to these folks.  Nick and Matt have been my heroes since high school, and I went into full Fangirl mode when they just replied to my email.  It reminded me of why I love doing this.  So without further ado, my interview with the Quicksand Jack Creative Team!
