An explanation of biseenscene:
Lindsay’s online username has multiple pronunciations and meanings.
The name first came into existence as bise-en-scene when filming bison on a Super8 camera, a pun on the term mise-en-scene. (bees-un-sun) It can also be parsed as a bisexuality visibility moniker, bi-seen-scene. (bye-seen-seen) It shares auditory qualities with B-e too. (bee-sen-seen) Other options: (bye-sun-sun) (biz-in-seen) (etc)
