What is Not Literally?

Not Literally is a parody music and comedy production group founded by Ginny DiGuiseppi, Dana Ritterbusch, and Erik Tande in 2011. Our parodies center around fandom and nerd culture, featuring characters from science-fiction and fantasy movies, television shows, and books. Our goal is to take our passion for fandom and use that to create something all fandom-lovers can bond over.

Having started out focused in the world of Harry Potter, Not Literally has since branched out to include such popular fandoms as Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games, and Doctor Who, with plans for much more! Since beginning in 2011, our reach and our variety has only grown — making it easier and easier to connect with other fandom nerds and share the passion for media!




Dana, known in YouTube comments as “the blonde one,” is 26 and is in social media. She’s trained in opera singing and her life goal is to become a living embodiment of Pinterest. She’s a soprano, a Lannister, and a Slytherin. She’d probably be an airbender, but really likes earthbenders’ style. Her favorite video is Movies of the Night. Dana stars and sings in Not Literally videos and helps conceptualize projects.

Erik is 31, from North Dakota, a Hufflepuff, a Stark, and works as a motion graphics artist. He loves running, the goddamn Batman, and being so focused on filming that he doesn’t laugh at Dana’s jokes. Which are hilarious. Erik can’t choose his favorite video. You can visit his websites here and here. Erik does all the videography, cinematography, editing, and visual effects.

  1. Star ocean 2 for the PS1 and PS2 was a great game that managed to capture an elegant blend of 2D sprites in a 3D world with the anime look that so many love and enjoy.
    At the beginning of the game you will probably receive a certain amount of money.
    00 an hour, this is certainly cheaper than clubbing.

  2. Avengers Alliance was nominated for best online game
    and won the Video Games Award 2012. I was introduced by my grade school to
    this game and every computer period if we were lucky we got to play Roller Coaster
    Tycoon. You can play them in the comfort of your home and at any time that is convenient to you.

    of me.

  4. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
    very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.

    I must say that you’ve done a amazing job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Opera.
    Excellent Blog!
