April 30th 2010
Image Name


In a recent review by Josh Jackson of Paste Magazine, Autumn Reeser’s, No Ordinary Family, was deemed one of the most interesting pilots expected for Fall 2010.

No Ordinary Family (ABC) was summarized by Jackson as follows:

The Shield’s Michael Chiklis may be back if this live-action take on The Incredibles gets picked up. A family emerges from a wreck in the Amazon with super-powers, but they’ve got to navigate ordinary family problems as well as fight crime. Starring: Michael Chiklis, Julie Benz, Autumn Reeser, Romany Malco, Jimmy Bennett, Kay Panabaker, Christina Chang.”

Save KOCT
April 27th 2010

Please read & help in any way you can!  An amazing California community television station (managed for 21 years by my wonderful Dad, Tom Reeser) is in danger of being cut by the city council—please read more below and at my sister’s blog:

http://instantlibrarian.wordpress.com/2010/04/17/the-public-good-in-the-bad-economy/

From KOCT.org:

The City of Oceanside proposes to cut KOCT’s funding by $500,000. If this happens, the KOCT that you know today will be gone.

KOCT’s funding represents less than 1 percent of the city’s budget, yet KOCT’s dedicated staff documents almost 100 percent of events and issues that concern our community.

Sixty-five percent of KOCT’s budget is labor-related costs.  (And please note that no one at KOCT receives a pension or an IRA).  With a staff of only 9 full time and 17 part time employees, KOCT produces more programming for, by and about our community than any commercial broadcaster or government agency does or can do.  Because the city has fallen on hard times,  KOCT’s twenty-five year legacy may soon come to an end.

KOCT’s funding is not derived from sales or property tax. It comes from the cable company and cable customer.  Up to now, these funds have insured that a small portion of the television spectrum is set aside for the public good.

We’re under no illusion that everyone watches KOCT or that our programming is as popular as American Idol but we know for a fact that KOCT is an important information resource utilized by many Oceanside residents and web surfers countywide.
Statistically accurate surveys have shown that 75 percent of Oceanside residents watch KOCT.
KOCT is available in more than 80 percent of Oceanside homes (55,000)
In 2009 over 60 nonprofits and individuals signed up to appear on Oceanside Spectrum to promote, publicize and share their message.
KOCT aired 244 public service announcement submitted by residents and nonprofit organizations last year.
In 2009, KOCT’s public access services were used by 33 organizations-many to share their church services with the disabled and homebound seniors.
KOCT.org averages 6 to 7 thousand hits per month and growing.
KOCT’s popularity was determined in surveys and public workshops, enabling the City of Oceanside to negotiate the best television franchise in San Diego County.
In times of emergency, KOCT has proven to be a valuable information resource.

Imagine Oceanside without televised programs about our community - no election programs, no stories of the greatest generation, no high school sports games, no 4th of July parade, no music concerts,  no television access for the public to promote local events, nothing about our neighbors and neighborhoods - none of the 325 programs KOCT produces each year.

The City Manager presents his plan to balance the budget at a Mayor and Council Workshop on Wednesday, April 28th at 4:00 p.m. in Council Chambers.

If KOCT has been important to you, let your voice be heard.  Attend the workshop, call or write your elected officials today.

My Time at Streamy Awards
April 13th 2010

Hi, guys!
The highlight of my weekend was an especially busy Sunday evening—I attended the second annual Streamy Awards (for Excellence in Web Content) with my husband, Jesse Warren, who was nominated for 7 awards for his web series, The Bannen Way.

It was truly a great night because his series won for Best Director of a Drama Series (Jesse Warren), Best Editing (Zack Arnold, Fix-it-in-Post), Best Actor in a Drama Series (Mark Gantt),  and Best Dramatic Web Series!!  Thanks to the Streamy Academy for honoring them, and for giving all of us internet-lovers a chance to celebrate the hard work all of these nominees have put into making exciting, innovative content for the web.

The awards were well-deserved, but the awards show itself had quite a few glitches (live feed loss! a rapidly vanishing audience!  streakers!!).  I feel for the organizers, who obviously worked hard to try to put together an enjoyable night to honor all the nominees, though things did not go as they planned.  Read More Here…

Host of the show Paul Scheer did a really nice job making the best of all the mishaps, as did presenter Kevin Pollack who diffused the situation with spot-on humor & sarcasm.  For me, the (almost) saving grace had to be the talented performers in the musical opening number.  REALLY fantastic & funny performances by a group of talented singers from New York—wish I could tell you who they are, but for the life of me I can’t find this group’s name anywhere online or in the program.  Take my word that they were exciting & talented, and please tell me if you know who they are! smile  Also a highlight:  a musical ‘Thank You’ acceptance speech from the creators of “Auto-Tune The News,” who won for Best Experimental Web Series.

Here are some shots from the evening. 
My dress is Milly (loved it!) and I bought my necklace for $8 at Crossroads Vintage this week. smile
