    Gem Sweater girl. Definitely quirky/geeky, but yes, knew she's from Ames.

    Leslie rocks, and yes she is from Ames.

    Some of her videos even feature some Ames places :)

    Can't believe I actually paused The White Album Remastered to listen to that.
    Saw the article and was interested, though. That is not rap.

    She's already had more success than I would have ever believed. Goes to show, being able to make fun of yourself can take you a long way these days.

    Leslie Hall - it's like Divine and Amy Sedaris had a baby together.

    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    Re: Leslie Hall - From Ames?

    I graduated with Lelie, she was an attention hound back then and it looks like not much has changed. She was the Prom Queen because she campaigned for it the entire year and everyone bought on to it. I cant say I'm suprised that she is doing this now, but I have to say her work was not my cup of tea then and continues that way today.

    Um... I have no words.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    I think she is hilarious! You put her on SNL and she'd be a hit.

    Well. That was 3 minutes and 44 seconds of my life that I'll never get back. It was kind of like Weird Al, only...not funny whatsoever.

    Zombie Killer! Leslie Hall is an American genius.

    First saw her camper (traveling Gem Sweater museum) at the spring game about three years ago. Went home and looked her up - so awesomely bizarre.
