I battle my own windmills

Wellllll I have been reading, researching and finding there is no basic mega list of web series - soooooooo I have decided to descend into madness and start a Mega list

dw2100's Web Series Mega List - home.comcast.net/~docwho2000/index.html

Of course As I take this journey to answer the question - how many web series are there - I find I am going up against a LARGE set of data... lots of research and review and whewwww - but I am already enjoying the research and web coding and writing about this topic - so I welcome the madness and the thought of the little engine that could - one web series at a time!!!!

PS - anyone wanna join me on this mad journey?????

Found a cool webseries site

This looks really neat and working on a collection of webseries

www.epiguide.com/forums/index.php

Does anyone know if there is a site that lists all the web series and includes links to reviews or basic summaries of the web series?

OK more on the small films article I posted

Ok to elaborate on the article I posted a few ago and my dream job

I love web series (and movies) - like 3Way (and Ladycops) and Gemini Division and Angel of Death and I could keep going (I manage the Mahalo web series page and trying to list them there - there are 1000s - I have a long way to go to listing them all - hmm need to find a wiki that catalogs web series and such)

But you miss the theater atmo for most of these as you watch on the web or get the DVD (for the small films) - so if I had money and was not concerned with making loads of money, I would love to have a small theater that showcased and mixed web series and small movies with a theater atmo. I mean to have themes and events and all sorts of things and to inspire local community in filmmaking and just - damn I would love to run/manage work one of these places - sigh.... if only wishes could come true....

PS - again would not be about money just being in the environment...

PSS - there are so many small production firms - just found this one - www.marloproductions.com/Welcome.html

ah well

2012 mania keeps growing

hehe - yeah I should not laugh but this is turning into as big a deal as the Prince 1999 and millennium hullabaloo and the Y2K bug (remember that doom)

Hmmm this sounds interesting

Found this article - I like the concept and also there is a mention about a firm that allows groups to purchase a movie for a screening - what a cool way to do a fundraiser or other thing and nice to know there are ways for small film makers to make it

What a week

So - I had one of the greatest experiences of my life - I participated in a blog show - the archive is here - www.blogtalkradio.com/allaine/2009/10/23/Nikki-and-Nora

I got to be one of the readers (I read Liz Vassey) - and the highlight was Nancylee Myatt actually called in!!! Yup she was listening and called in and interacted with us - it was soooo awesome - she is so awesome - do catch some of her stuff if you can.

I sounded like a dork, but I hope I did alright in representing Ms. Vassey

I also finished up a lot of projects so starting to get into a good routine and schedule. This is good because it means consistency and more of a steady road for me.

I got my hair cut, it is short but it's good - and trying to get things organized, plus finding more things are fun (work still up and down but eh)

Been watching Dexter (almost through season 1), finished Exes and Ohs season 1, bloodties season 2 and assorted movies - wheeee - lots of great stuff.

Defying Gravity - just watched the last episode currently filmed - I keep hoping there will be more, but ah well - such is the life of many shows and on to stories and fanfic.

But yes, feeling a bit freer and as my sister said, sounding a lot happier than I have in a while! Yay

Another site with info about upcoming fun

Wheeee - getting more excited

from www.tellofilms.com/members/action/blogcomment/?blog_id=43

Hey Nikki & Nora Fans!

On Thursday, October 22nd, 2009, there will be a a highly unique show at the special starting time of 9 PM EST:

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/allaine/20 09/10/23/Nikki-and-Nora

Nikki & Nora's Nancylee Myatt, Christina Cox, and Liz Vassey Answer Your Questions

On this show three people will talk - creator/writer Nancylee Myatt and stars Christina Cox and Liz Vassey. It's going to be an unusual show in more ways than one. Not only will it be the first time I've interviewed actual celebrities for my show instead of fan authors, not only will the show run longer than sixty minutes, but it will also be the first time where every single question will have been asked prior to airing. Due to scheduling conflicts that prevent all three of the guests from appearing in person, the entire interview has been conducted via email, and their answers will be read over the air by longtime N&N fans Silk, Inspectorboxer, and Docwho2100. Those questions are from the fans themselves. And to top it all off, my guests have expressed a willingness to answer questions about other projects. That means television programs like CSI, Blood Ties, Defying Gravity, and South of Nowhere are all on the table. So be sure to tune in - there's no telling what you might find out about your favorite pairing.

This show is special, not just because of the successful television actresses who will be appearing, not just because their answers will be given by proxies, but also because of that title. "Answer Your Questions." My guests and I are actively asking the fans to supply the questions for this show. I've already let the members of certain communities (primarily femslash communities devoted to the various television programs referenced above) know in an unofficial capacity that they have until midnight EST on Friday, October 16th, 2009 to submit a question for your favorite star - or even all three of them. Well, now I'm telling everyone. This is your golden chance to ask Liz, Christina, and/or Nancylee one question. They'll be answering up to 20 questions apiece. So more questions is better. More questions from different people is better. And more people tuning in is definitely better.

So remember - midnight EST on October 16th is the deadline for question submissions. 9-11 PM EST on October 22nd is when the show will air. You can always download prior episodes at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/allain e, including my N&N discussion on October 1st with Silk.

How many of these have you experienced

Major tech boo-boos

THIS IS SO COOL

I have never done anything like this - I am so nervous and excited in one fell swoop (I am nemodoryismyido on livejournal)

---- official announcement)

Dear everyone,

(This is the official announcement which goes out everywhere today.)

Typically I don't promote upcoming shows beyond the newest one, which will be my Kim Possible show this Thursday, October 15th, from 10-11 PM. Under these very special circumstances, however, I'm making an exception.

On Thursday, October 22nd, 2009, I'll be hosting a highly unique show at the special starting time of 9 PM EST:

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/allaine/2009/10/23/Nikki-and-Nora

Nikki & Nora's Nancylee Myatt, Christina Cox, and Liz Vassey Answer Your Questions

Normally I don't devote two full episodes of this program to a single fandom. Certainly I don't normally do it in the same month. In the wake of the October 1st discussion of Nikki & Nora, however, we're taking one more spin around the New Orleans city block on October 22nd for a very special occasion. On this show I'll be talking with the three people that N&N fans associate with the show most - creator/writer Nancylee Myatt and stars Christina Cox and Liz Vassey. It's going to be an unusual show in more ways than one. Not only will it be the first time I've interviewed actual celebrities for my show instead of fan authors, not only will the show run longer than sixty minutes, but it will also be the first time where every single question will have been asked prior to airing. Due to scheduling conflicts that prevent all three of my guests from appearing in person, the entire interview has been conducted via email, and their answers will be read over the air by longtime N&N fans katiepult, inspectorboxer, and nemodoryismyido. Those questions aren't just from me, either - most of them are from the fans themselves. And to top it all off, my guests have expressed a willingness to answer questions about other projects. That means television programs like CSI, Blood Ties, Defying Gravity, and South of Nowhere are all on the table. So be sure to tune in - there's no telling what you might find out about your favorite pairing.

man hackers disrupt a lot of lives

Man - can you believe this - time to change passwords again - what a waste of time and money - http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2353820,00.asp

Great song - can you Relate

I really like this song - I'm using it in a Nikki and Nora story I am writing and I like how it seems to describe, to me, a deep level of Nikki and Nora's relationship. I like the song in general and the title is a catchy phrase - try working it into a conversation - I dare you ;)

Do you have someone you could sing/say this to?

Spiritual Virginity by Amber

Challenging conversations
help me to face
what lies ahead
Life is a mystery; your love is truly
unconditionally ...

I cried to the stars
with a frozen heart --
the same heart
that told me to see me

Finally I found
someone to hear what I hear
(someone to hear)
someone to feel what I feel
(someone to feel)
someone to see what I see
(someone to see)
Your spirit illuminates me

(You took my)
You took my spiritual virginity
and you opened up all of my fantasy
Yeah, yeah -- look at what you do to me
Yeah ...
Spiritual virginity

(I reach and reach and reach)

I'm wondering what
(Why?)
I am meant to be
(Find a meaning)
Searching for a soul
to understand and be with me

Finally I found
someone to hear what I hear
(someone to hear)
someone to feel what I feel
(someone to feel)
someone to see what I see
(someone to see)
Your spirit illuminates me

(You took my)
You took my spiritual virginity
and you opened up all of my fantasy
Yeah, yeah -- look at what you do to me
Yeah ...
Spiritual virginity

Look at the light,
the sky so wide
I see, I see you
Your spirit illuminates me

(You took my)
You took my spiritual virginity
and you opened up all my fantasy
Spiritual virginity
(Look at what you do to me)
Spiritual virginity

Spiritual virginity --
opened up my fantasy,
revealed my sensibility,
with your creativity

1 million fans to save Defying Gravity

OK - let's make this group - http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=145579116164&ref=ts the 1 million fans to save Defying Gravity group - I'd rather use a group already out there then making yet another one and splintering people - we need to collect all the DG support not dilute it- let's see if we can get those numbers up - consider it a challenge, a contest, a race...

- there are 300 million on face book and more fans around the world - just have people join - like signing a petition - let's do this - the 1 million fans for Defying Gravity campaign - tell everyone about it!!!!!!!!

Let's show the numbers to back the idea DG should continue!!!!
