You asked for it...

Well ok technically MTV asked for it, not you, but I know you're all going to get a kick out of this. It's my audition video for MTV's True Life: I'm a Fanboy. 


I originally submitted a whole bunch of information at the NY Comic Con site and had since gotten an email asking for more information and a three minute video. I couldn't decide if I should focus on one thing for the video, like The Fifth Element, or try to do a little of everything. I settled on mostly TFE seeing as how my written submission explains everything else. So, what do you guys think? Do I have a chance? Wish me luck!

Edit: I also have it uploaded on Google Video now. It was giving me trouble earlier.

Awesome! How could they not pick you?

Amber Love said...

That's fantastic! It would be funny if you were the only girl picked. I'd feel bad though because those semi-reality shows usually make people sleep in one room. Too bad I'm too old for it. I guess I have to wait and see if WWTBASH 3 ever gets created.

What Freakgirl said!

Can't believe you have a set of those stones. You geek! ;)

Elyse said...

That was awesome! I hope you get picked!

Thanks everybody!!

Did Geekboy just call me a geek?? :P

And don't worry Beth, it's not one of those live together type shows. The people featured usually don't even interact, it's all about their seperate stories.

I have a very low opinion of MTV these days. See, I'm old enough to remember watching videos in the 'early days.'

My opinion will change if they pick you. And I promise I will watch it.

Only for you, Jill!

That's courageous on your part, submitting an entry to partake in this show.

While I loathe most of the "MTV" stuff nowadays, I would also watch it ONLY if you make it on the show.

I know how much you love The Fifth Element, but you also seem to have a good knowledge of the DC comics characters.

Whatever happens, it was great to see your video and I do wish you luck.

Oh come now, MTV... The blog's title speaks for itself "Has Boobs, Reads Comics." A big "WTF" if you guys don't chose Jill. There are so many men/boys that are fanboys but it's VERY rare to find a quality fanboy girl. Come on, MTV.

Very entertaining video, Jill.

I also agree about MTV going downhill with their programming but the only good show that's on MTV are the "True Life" ones. I really like those.

Amazing video and presentation, and I believe I achieved a 'geek boner' because of it!

I hope you get picked, so I can have a reason to watch MTV...because really, last time MTV was good was in the 80s. LOL

The Nerdy Bird said...

Thanks again everyone! It sucks that MTV doesn't play videos anymore, (and yes Randy I'm old enough to remember when they did!) but they've gotta go with the times unfortunately.

Thanks for all saying you'd watch!

Randy said...

And here I thought I was the resident 'old fart' of your blog!!!

LOL

Just out of curiosity, what's the first video any of you remember seeing on MTV? I actually remember watching 'Video Killed the Radio Star' the very first time it aired. I was only 10 or 11 and I don't think it really occurred to me the kind of 'history' I was watching that day.

But it's something I've never forgotten.

Toys? There are action figures!

Alexa D said...

Hey! I found your blog through this vid after I sent in my own app! And OMG, you make me look positively boring! I love the title of your blog, btw-- Hell yes people with boobs can read comics!

Good luck to you!

The Nerdy Bird said...

Hahaha, well Mark, when you have nieces who come over looking longingly at your "action figures" you tend to revert back to 7 years old in order to ensure their survival.

Thanks so much Alexa! I'm glad you stopped by. Good luck to you as well.
