Elizabeth Fiend has become an underground celebrity in Philadelphia thanks to her eye for aesthetics. Her "cooking, crafts, and anarchy" show, Big Tea Party, has been airing in three-minute spots on Drexel University's DUTV for the past two years. On the show, Fiend plays herself, a remarkably calm, yet zany punk-rock Martha Stewart who instructs viewers on decorating photo albums, turning Colt 45 bottle caps into necklaces and putting out a 7-inch record.

...
"Come check out this coat closet," Fiend beckons, switching on a light.
...
Fiend and her friends (Big Tea Party camerawoman Gretjen Clausing and editor Valerie Keller) are instantly in the mood for dancing, cracking up and wondering what qualifies as a boogie.
...
In contrast to the busyness of the music room and downstairs spaces, the room Fiend shares with her husband is simple, its walls adorned by paintings by Fiend (who is also a cartoonist). "People freak out that the bed faces away from the door, but I like to sit here and look out the window all the time," she says. Out that window is a well-kept garden that's nearly as long as the house itself. "I'm trying to be savvy and grow things that are expensive in the supermarkets," Fiend confides, pointing out a grapevine - "We got 50 pounds of grapes from that thing last year. As a photographer coaxes Fiend, Clausing and Keller into posing with garden tools, the backyard fills with peals of laughter.
...
Fiend's a natural in front of the camera, goading her friends into high-energy hilarity. But the next time you see Fiend in front of a camera it will probably be wielded by a paparazzo at Fest Indies. So what will the style maven wear to the big gala? Perhaps a dress fashioned from that old carpet or one printed with her cartoons?
"I'm just gonna go into my closet and choose something with my eyes closed," says Fiend.

...
Fiend "hosts" the show, providing snappy commentary that is squarely aimed at the establishment's misrepresentations and double-speak.
She searches out and interviews protesters who discuss a wide range of concerns, bringing to the fore the diversity of voices fuelling the anti-Republican forces.
We also get a taste of the opposite side's mind-set from people such as Log Cabin Republican Donald Carter who defends gay conservatism and a "Sisters for the Second Amendment" spokesperson who calls (loudly) for a piece in every purse.
The video is tightly edited and spiced up with anti-capitalist rap poetry, screamingly funny studio cuts of Fiend wringing the neck of a "rubber chicken" politician, and other vignettes.
...
Even special guest Ben Franklin learns a thing or two from Elizabeth while he charms her into making him a sandwich - a sandwich on a soft pretzel!
