I auditioned to be a TVgasm recapper at the start of Top Chef Season 2. Yes. I’m an old bitch. I fell in love with the site during my waiter downtime. Shit talking about TV shows under a fake name was my destiny, and this silly bullshit changed my life. I knew I was born to make fun of dodo birds on TV, so when an audition came up, I jumped on that shit immediately. Here’s my finalist recap for that round, thanks to the un-erasable internet. Well, the pics are erasable, apparently, but MY DESTINY DAY LIVES ON, F-ERS!
Point is: I would read every recap at TVgasm and think “I was put on Earth do this shit.” All these years later, I’m not only still talking poo about TV shows, I’m doing it with a ton of hilarious friends on TrashTalkTV who have bonded over the “art” of snarky recaps. If you read this site and know you are meant to do this for zero fame, glory, or bill payments, welcome! It’s time for another life changing recapper audition battle to the death!
In my mind, this post was way more inspiring than it is in print, but I only get worse with edits so let’s just carry on. – Flipit/Ronnie
Hey guys, L Boogie here! I found TVgasm after I quit my soul draining corporate job to live my best life. That life mostly consisted of eating bagels and drinking coffee everyday while I refreshed the site hourly for new recaps of any and every show. Instead of shopping for presents, working full time or constructing a meaningful relationship, I auditioned for TVgasm in December of 2008 with my take on A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa. You haven’t lived until you’ve trolled Muppets on the Internet. Tears almost fell from my cold, dead eyes when Ronnie wrote to say that I’d earned a spot on the roster. Apparently this is as good as life gets because this gig has been through 5 career changes, 16 relationships and 47 Kardashian babies. We’ve evolved into TrashTalkTV and we’re looking for new recappers to join us! Read on and share with your friends, family and enemies – you’re all welcome here!
Here’s how TTTV Recapper Auditions work:
There are THREE rounds.
ROUND 1: You email your best trash talking recap of whatever show you want by end of day Feb 23rd, 2018 with the subject line TTTV ROUND ONE. We want to hear YOUR voice as loudly and unapologetically as you can convey it. A panel of old timey recappers votes, and the top recappers are moved to…
ROUND 2: We assign a group of recappers a painfully difficult show to spin into comedy gold. The top scorers in that round move onto…
THE FINALS: Pairs of our top scorers go head to head for a TrashTalkTV Reader vote. There will be a public poll for our readers to decide on our next shit slinging superstar.
Send your Round 1 submissions by Feb 23rd to firstname.lastname@example.org! And good luck!
