Broadcast on Drexel University's DUTV, and created by Fiend (writer), Valerie Keller (editor) and Gretjen Clausing (camera) this show, featuring "cooking, crafts, and anarchy," has a distinctly Philadelphia flavor.
...
Fiend does not take the growing admiration for their work lightly. Sipping from a glass of tomato juice, she cites a fan letter from memory.
...
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.
...
Artist/musician Elizabeth Fiend, who got her license to perform weddings from the online Universal Life Church, is offering this freebie (free for couples and their guests).
...
The whole fabulous fling will be filmed for a program about weddings on BiG TeA PaRtY, Fiend's "television show."
BiG TeA PaRtY is a really short (about three minutes), rather absurdist show that airs on the DISH Network on Satellite TV.
Fiend says she's looking for as many offbeat, willing couples as she can find. And she emphasizes that the marriages will only be legal if couples get licenses.
...
The energy force-field that is Elizabeth Fiend comes across in her 3-minute television show, "Big Tea Party," with its quick cuts, funny titles that skitter across the screen, and multiple bits of advice compressed into just a few moments.
...
There are also plenty of craft projects like restyling vintage store coats and making malt liquor bottle cap necklaces ("This is one of my favorite projects because before you start you have to drink a 40," says Fiend).
...
Fiend is knowledgeable, but not haughty like most of those handy-hint hosts-she's a "Philly girl" and proud of it. (If you listen closely, you can hear cameraperson Gretjen Clausing giggling in the background.)
...
Ten years ago, Elizabeth Fiend began writing and hosting cartoonish videos on DUTV, Drexel's cable station, with editor Valerie Keller and camerawoman Gretjen Clausing as her partners.
...
"Before Reality TV, before YouTube, BiG TeA PaRtY was doing it - and doing it better," says Fiend.
...
But, frankly, Elizabeth (you can't keep referring to somebody as "Fiend" through a whole story, no matter what the newspaper style manual says about second and third references) doesn't think the Martha comparison is all that amusing and, truth to tell, she's kind of tired of it.
True, she does a kind of anarchist, punk-rock, thrift-shop-based, environmentally sensitive, frugality-driven, pro-vegan home-ec show on TV. And yes, her idea of craft is using kitschy kitchen sponges shaped like coffee cups and percolators to potato-print a thrift-shop pleather coat, or melting an old record on top of a coffee can in a slow oven to turn it into a candy dish that really rocks.
