Another post about me and my dad; this one a little more positive. 🙂
I had to repost this. I suppose I’m just surprise but a little glad that dad finally caught up with my whole “Internet job” thing (or as I like to call it, my Secret Internet Life.) Dad tracked down a facebook group dedicated to me and left the following message:
Carroll Ellis Probably the #1 fan of the “NOSTALGIA CHICK”, for I go back farther than anyone else knowing her, for I helped “make” her some 26 years back. You guessed it, I am her dad. James Carroll Ellis. Since leaving home for NYU, and then on to USC, I have watched her mature into a young adult while establishing a wonderful fan base and friends, which is deeply appreciated and I simply say “Thank You”. Her talents are obvious, having many, just like her ol dad.
As for NELLA, SWEET, SWEET, NELLA, Lindsay and Nella, (Antonella) have been and are the best of friends. Any remarks, suggestions, and/or references to her were done as a professional actor, and certainly no malice was intended. She (Nella) has visited our home many times, and she is a surperb beautiful human being. The world would be a better place with more NELLAS.
I’m on facebook as Carroll Ellis. Johnson City, TN.
Ha, looks like even dad picked up on the unrest concerning Nella’s portrayal as my beleaguered friend. Hopefully this is the last time anyone will ever have to say anything about this, but people, even if you are put off by it, understand that we’re performing satire that tries to skewer the whole idea of how people are perceived in terms of physical beauty. Also, we are playing CHARACTERS. Nella put forth a much more articulate and vitriolic argument here. I love my Nella. She is my BFF in many ways. And I love my dad, even if we don’t have the most communicated-oriented relationship.
