I happily spent the better part of my late night internet hours yesterday, clicking and viewing episode after addicting episode of a new to me YouTube-based webcom, The Louise Log. I loved this clever, sophisticated, offbeat video series so much, that I knew right away I had to tell you about it.
The Louise Log is a comedy web series of short video made up whispered confessions of a New York City wife and mother hell-bent on getting it right in spite of her high maintenance husband, her addiction to caffeine and her over-active inner voice. Sundance veteran director, Anne Flournoy, is the creator of The Louise Log, where the subtle heroine, Louise, whispers her thoughts aloud as she encounters life.
You love this already, don't you?
What draws me and binds me to a humorist or a character, is when I find myself able to relate. I very much relate to the heroine in this series, "Louise". I do all the fumbling self doubt and second guessing of myself, as she does. My internal dialogue is much like hers--and to hear it voiced aloud, I laugh in recognition. And relief.
Seeing myself in Louise provides a welcoming chance to appreciate and feel alright about my own thoughts as I try to figure out life.
I fell in love with Louise with Season 1, Episode 1, of The Louise Log, where you meet her for the 1st time. She is so wonderfully real.
This one is my favorite. Season 1, Episode 2 :"How To Shop at A Farmer's Market" ENJOY!! [1 min 43 sec]
