Midweek Multimedia: Depilation Edition


(Yes, yes, we know, midweek. But we are in the middle of taking this web analytics class, and yes we shall be analyzing you ALL *wiggles fingers in hypnotic manner* and we just finished this week’s assignment. It’s actually pretty interesting and geeky, which is right up the Editrix’s alley.)

The fourth episode of “Sex and the Austen Girl” is available at Babelgum. This week, Courtney and Jane discuss beauty products and hair removal.

If you missed BBC Four’s “Jane Austen’s iPod” show the first time around, it was rebroadcast the other day, and you can listen to it for a few more days. Make haste! Thanks to Alert Janeite Peggy for reminding us about the Listen Now feature.

Midweek Multimedia: I Am So Tweeting This Edition


Yes, it’s late. Stop judging us. We were very busy earlier in the week!

The third episode of Sex and the Austen Girl is available at Babelgum. The ladies discuss modern technology in this episode. We have to say we are really enjoying the performances of Arabella Field and Fay Masterson in these webisodes. The ladies seem to be having a great time with the material and really get it. Also we like the background showing Prior Park and the folly bridge, because we were there! 🙂 (When we are Editrix, er, High Priestess of the Universe, Prior Park will be appropriated as the Home for Wayward Fangirls.)

Also, we heard that the program(me) Jane Austen’s iPod will be repeated on Radio 4 at 1.30pm on Sunday 6th June (we blogged about it previously). Also, David Owen Norris, the presenter, and Amanda Pitt will be performing an hour from Jane Austen’s music collection in the Turner Sims Concert Hall at the University of Southampton at 8pm on Wednesday 30th June. Tickets are £10.

And last but not least for this week’s multimedia, we have the return of Mr. Darcy, this time having a discussion with Lady Catherine. He seems rather agitated.

Monday Multimedia: Even Lizzy Bennet Can’t Say No To A Cute Puppy Edition


The first two episodes of “Sex and the Austen Girl” are now available. The web-exclusive series, examining the differences and similarities of young women making their way in modern and Regency society, is based on the two Jane Austen Addict novels written by Laurie Viera Rigler.

And we promised cute puppies, right? Right. Mr. Darcy is not amused.
