GABBLER RECOMMENDS: Ninas. Specifically, Nina Conti and Nina Paley

The Ninas:

Nina Paley – artist, director, activist.
Nina Paley is the creator of such awesome animations as the film Sita Sings the Blues and the short Thank You For Not Breeding. She is also a copyright activist (in that she is more of a copyLEFTist) and an artist/cartoonist. Her upcoming film about the Middle East looks effing amazing. She also quilts, which is super hardcore.

Nina Conti – comedian, ventriloquist, actor.

Nina Conti is a hilarious woman we discovered on the Late Late Show. You can find a lot of good stuff of her on YouTube. She is also the focus of the documentary Her Master’s Voice, which explores the art of ventriloquism. See the trailer here:
