Hi. My name is Jess and I...

am a bit of a nerd... Yep, you heard me. I stood in line for the release of the last 4 Harry Potter books, and read them all right as they came out (starting in 6th grade). I have seen every episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly (and Serenity, naturally), and Dollhouse (ok so this is sounding like Joss Whedon biography...). I love Dr. Horrible and the Guild (even though I don't play WOW, I can appreciate Felicia Day in ANYTHING.) I love the whole X-Men series (and have even read a few of the comics thanks to having two very very nerdy male best friends for a while). I read all three Hunger Games books in a weekend. Needless to say, if it's nerdy, cultish, or made by Joss Whedon, I like it.

Why am I spilling my nerdy little heart to you? Well, I have found some kindred spirits. Not Literally. haha I mean literally, but the group is called "Not Literally". They are a nerdy comedy/ music group that write and produce parody music videos  and an original comedy series called "Ask Hogwarts".

They are hilarious and I love them. Currently they are mostly based in the Harry Potter fandom, but they recently filmed a Hunger Games parody to the song "Honor to Us All" from Mulan that looks like it will be amazing. Here are some teasers:

I think it looks incredible! 

Anyhoo, why am I sharing all of this with you? Well, mostly because I love them and I want to share everything I love with you, including my mild obsession with Rhinos... 

And secondly because Andy and I will be extras in their next video!! Right now they are working on a Gryffindor house pride video (see above for Slytherin and Hufflepuff) and Andy and I get to be extras! We will be filming it in a few weeks so I am doing lots of crafts for the shoot that I will be sharing with you in the near future! (a wand DIY as well as a tutorial of how to screen print using Freezer Paper. Riveting stuff I tell you. )

So thats whats going on over here. I dare you to wander over to their Youtube channel, subscribe, and spend the next hour watching everything they have ever done. And while you're add it, mosey on over to Facebook and Like them, and follow them on Twitter. And follow them on Pinterest.  And if you have a Tumblr, they do too, so go and do what you do on Tumblr (tumbl?) and get your social media on! They do have a giveaway going on right now for Hunger Games swag, so if you do Tumbl, reblog them to be entered to win!! GO now, I dare you! I double dog dare you (which means you have to.)
