Have you seen Issa Rae?

I’ve been having a hard time coming up with the title to this post.  I don’t want to use the word awkward. It’s not that I don’t want to give the subject away or something; it just seems to easy. Now that I have gone & said all this, I’m thinking any attempt at creativity would be a fail. So, it’s called what it’s called. I can live with it, so I’m sure you can, too.

ABG Espiode 1

I like watching her because I like pretty petite brown girls with nice smiles. Plus, she just may be the funniest woman I want to know.  You may or may not like watching her for the same reasons, but I’m sure that it won’t take long to find some of your own.  I could say a bunch of stuff that has been said about Awkward Black Girl, Issa’s hit web-series . Some articles  are posted below; the word universal comes to mind.  If this show was a stock featured on Mad Money, Cramer would be telling you to “BuyBuyBuy!!!” to a sounding bull charging across the screen. (If I’m a Venture Capitalist, I’m figuring out how I can convince this woman & her partners to let me fund every conceivable aspect of this thing to reap some of the fruit that’s GOING TO fall from this tree, dig?)

With 19 days to go (@11:42 a.m. 07.23.2011 EST), Issa Rae is nearly halfway to a 30K goal.  I’m actually surprised that she hasn’t raised the money yet. (I just tweeted Russell Simmons @Uncle Rush — he’s a smart investor; we should start a campaign!)

In this YouTube age where so much is freely available, I like getting something for free that I would pay for, which makes me willing to pay for it; I guess that’s what makes something priceless.
