YpsiGirl news and updates:
It has been two months since I have been able to edit- I had to sell some of my video equipment for our big move and to get my car back on the road. My external hard drives are full and my DVD burner died on me… I have about 20 hours of footage to capture and edit- hence the long ass delay in airing new episodes.  While I cannot at this time get a new hard drive I am excited to announce that I begin shooting a new weekly series in the hot line studio at CTN. I am hoping  come May we will have a weekly series on Fridays from 7:00pm to 7:30pm… and this will include a live call in show a few times a month.
Jesse and I have several programs in the works; here is the rundown of what we have been working on this past year…

  • Herbie's Haunt: Herby Tackett and his family have been putting on a residential haunt one night a year, in his driveway for 20 years. It is a wonderful Halloween spectacle that draws approximately 300 families. This past year, Ypsilanti Township got involved and threatened this family with loads of fines and even jail time. We happened to be there as the city inspector paid the family a visit… all I will say is that after witnessing the politics of Halloween on film in this blue collar neighborhood, Jesse and I decided to turn their story into a mini documentary and followed the Tackets for several weeks as they tried to fight the city fines etc.

  • Next is our first ever “Ypsi Reality show” Ypsi Girl and Michelle Shankwiler get a job as bar maids at Keystone Underground.  I have loads of footage to edit, and will honestly say that I am so glad I never got picked to be on any of those “real” reality shows after this experience.  

  • But wait there are more shows…lol ...Jesse and I spent an entire weekend filming three nights in a row capturing Ypsi Night Life at 8 evening establishments in the city, including one special place that is truly a hidden secret in depot town that most of you are not familiar with.

  • Lastly… Yours truly represented at this year’s 2010 A2 Hash Bash, we heard seriously heart wrenching emotional interviews, heartfelt speakers and captured lots of eye candy….this should be an inspiring and fun episode to watch. Check out annarbor.com's photo of us ..lol here:

So there you have it…. Even though we may not have been on local public access television very much lately we still have been on the beat working our butts off filming and interviewing my all time favorite city!
See you soon through the air waves.
Licks & Lashes,

P.S.... when I am not filming I emcee every Thursday night @ Keystone Underground for my man and his delicious band The Ypsi Underground from 8-11pm!  Stop in, no cover...pink wigs are strongly encouraged as well as fedoras!  Enjoy fantastic drink specials, retro class act entertainment and yummy $5 shrimp bowls...
