Annie Commercial!!

Okay!! Yes, I was ill today!! BUT, I did get my niece, Molly to get an Utterz and got them both to do a quasi commercial!! it was an idea we can up with at dinner and decided to do it! :) I thought it turned out really cute! Revver has to review them, so Maggie put it on her mySpace! I'll use that for now!! Apparently Revver won't be reviewing anything until after the New Year! Which is cool! They need a holiday too!

Molly Minter - actress
Maggie Minter - voice over artist/script writer
Annie Tyler - doggie actress
Karmyn Tyler - producer/videographer/editor

SOFTWARE VIRUS!!!! (video!)

Christopher Penn, you ROCK!! Thanks for tellin' us about this!! I LOVE IT!! A MUST watch!!

Part 1

Part 2

In all honesty, I have NOT been happy with my Norton Virus Protector! Gonna get something NEW SOON!!!!

Mike Huckabee? Why DO they love him?

Yep, I know him! He's a good guy! Adam Curry mentioned him! Even if he (Adam) thinks that Huck may be ( up for media slaughter! But, I DO like him! That I WILL say!! :) ;)  He's the real-deal!,9171,1692057,00.html?imw=Y

My aunt gave me this article!

Variety reports: Stirke KILLING Latenight TV!

Yep, this will be interesting! IMHO :) We watch shows out of habit! Ya get used to something (because of the stars in the show or concept of) and 'come rain or shine' you watch it unless it gets WAY out there and stupid! Case with me, I LOVED the X-files and I followed it for years, even through the crazy Titanic-type episode, but I finally had to say nix and started watching something else...don't even remember what! I (IMHO yet again) think that if one finds an alternative the odds of us coming back to their "old" show depends on the length of it's absence, unless there is a date scheduled for it's return (anticipation) and the quality of the program after the absence (and that one's up for debate!) But, here's the article that got me going saying...yep it's gonna start rumbling!

Karmyn Kast 22 is UP!!! Oops! I mean KarmKast 21!!! (Thank you Neil!)

SHOUT OUT to mom for doing the show notes!! I love you mom!!

SAG New Media Agreements!!!

I'm hopefully going to get a podcast out tomorrow or Wednesday sometime about the MOST awesome meeting I attended tonight on Dramatic Web Content!! (i.e. Webisodes, Mobicasts, Animation of the dramatic, theatrical kind....)

Bottom line is this:

1) Yes, SAG does cover web-media and new media (mobicasts)!!
2) No, you don't have to pay anything! Just treat your actors with respect under simple if it's going to be a 6 hour session...feed them!!
3) And YES, YES, YES, it is EASY (& a quick turn around) to do a SAG agreement!! REPEAT - it's SIMPLE to do and you will have a pool of FANTASTIC PROFESSIONAL actors to be in your web or mobi-content!

You (SAG members & Indie producers!!) have been LIED to you!!

SAG wants to help!!! Just make the phone call!!!!

More to come!!!!

Networks set for $120m from web ads

By Matthew Garrahan in Los Angeles

four US television networks in a pay dispute with Hollywood television
writers over online video advertising are in line to generate $120m of
revenues in 2007 from free web streaming of their content, according to
a leading media buyer.

The networks have been reluctant to
acknowledge the size of their streaming businesses, partly because
online video advertising has become a sticking point in pay
negotiations with the writers, who have been on strike for almost a

Please Pray for my sister...her house burned down!!

First off thank you everyone for your prayers and encouragement!! I could explain everything, but the local newspaper had it on the front page today! It's very sad!  The good news is that no one was killed!!

So it begins!


'What's the biggest issue? Internet and New Media

What are we asking for in Internet and New Media? Two things: 1. Residuals for reuse of content (like replaying tv shows) on the internet. We're asking for residuals of 2.5% of revenue
-- that means for every dollar they get paid, we'd get 2 and a half
cents. It's a flat percentage, so if they're right and they're never
ever going to make a penny, well then, we won't either. No harm, no
foul. Since 2.5% is our starting point, in any normal negotiation we'd
end up somewhere between what they want to pay (.3%) and what we're
asking for (2.5%). I'd guess 1 to 1.5 %. 2. Coverage and protections for original content (new stuff we create for the internet.) We're asking for basic protections so that when we write original stuff for the internet, we have rights -- health and pension, minimum amounts, credits and separated rights
(so if we make some amazing character or show, we get the right to
share in its success.) We're just asking for the same protections we
already have for writing in TV or film. Nothing new or weird. Just the

What are the other issues? DVDs: Currently we get .3% per dvd, we're asking for .6%. Translation: now we get 4 cents per dvd. We are asking for 8 cents per dvd. Since most DVD's cost at least 10 bucks, that doesn't exactly seem like a bank-breaker. Whatever. Enforcement of Coverage:  There
are lots of shows, like game shows, documentaries and talk shows, where
writing is supposed to be covered under our contract. The companies
sometimes just ignore the contract -- which means folks don't get
health and pension, and if they ask for it, they get fired. We want
them to stop that, and honor the contract they signed. Expansion of Coverage: We
want to cover stuff where writers are working without coverage, which
means without health and pension and other protections. The two big
areas are animation and reality. We think those writers should be covered.

Passion Fruit of the South!!

Since I've been here, I've started to miss things I can't get here! And of ALL things? Muscadines!! I found some juice here at the health food store and it's AWESOME!!!! here's bit of science to back up my love for this stuff!! The juices & wines are AMAZING! Of course, it may be an acquired taste! This was taken from the  health link at

Muscadine Grapes--New Health Food?

Scientists with ARS and Mississippi State University have found significant
amounts of resveratrol in the skin, pulp, and seeds of muscadine grapes.
Resveratrol is the compound in French wines said to lower cholesterol and the
risk of coronary heart disease.

In the Southeast, muscadines are grown to make juice. But the researchers
are now using muscadine waste from juice processing to make products like
muffins, jams and granola cereal. One-half serving (two ounces) of unfiltered
muscadine juice, one serving of muscadine jam, one medium muscadine muffin, or
one-tenth serving of muscadine sauce give the same dietary amounts of
resveratrol as four fluid ounces of red wine, the researchers say. Their report
is in the American Journal of Enology and Viticulture (vol. 47, pp.

Muscadine puree—an excellent source of resveratrol, dietary fiber and
some essential minerals—is high in carbohydrates and low in fat and
protein. Powdered puree contains more dietary fiber than oat or rice bran. In
MSU studies, rats fed the powder had lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and higher HDL
(good) levels than animals in the control group.

An AMAZING update!

Wow, I would have blogged before now, but I’ve been a bit in
shock….good shock!   The amazing news? I have a Commercial Agent!! YEAH!!
I’ve VERY excited!! I can’t even begin!! I’m so excited about ‘going out’ and
having an AGENT again! I wasn’t sure how I was received at the interview….we
were all in a group and talked about ourselves and read in front of each other
while the agents looked on! Of course since they are Commercial/Print we read
sides (short bit of a script) from a Commercial. I read it, and then….since I
was from Texas….was
asked for me to read it in my East Texan accent! I obliged and everyone
laughed!! It was funny too, this guys beside me was like, “That’s SO great!” I
thought to myself…..”Well, I’m from Texas (East Texas and Southwest Arkansas) so I should be able to have a heck of an accent in my pocket just a-waitin’ to
use!” Oye!! He was gorgeous though……model…..yeah!  Anyway, talk about a miracle!
There are people out here who don’t have an agent period! Granted, commercial
agents are the easiest to get…..not really easy…..just about 15% higher probability
than a theatrical agent, but hey, it’s a start. It was 6 months to the DAY that
they called and said that they wanted to represent me! If you’re not in the
business…you may not understand what a miracle that IS!! There are people who
have been up here for years and still can’t snag one! What’s funny? I prayed
that it would take 6 months. In fact, I kinda gave God a date! (Ha!! Like that
ever works!) 
I was thinking August 30th, but the funny thing was I wrote it on my
calendar wrong….I put 9/30/07 instead of 8/30/07. Well, thank goodness God
likes to joke! 
NOW…I can’t WAIT to be submitted on spots!! I really do LOVE commercials! They
are SO much fun!!! YEAH!!!

Oh, also, I have worked on 2 other sets…just another FYI –
this past week I worked on Boston Legal and Desperate Housewives and I have to
say….it’s a toss up as to how nice the cast and crews were! They were both
AMAZING and SOOOO nice! And I’m NOT just saying…typing that!! 

It all feels VERY good!  Thank you guys and
gals for the thoughts and prayers coming my way!! Keep ‘em coming! I’m STOKED!! 

It’s just a miracle from God!!!!! Thank you – Praise you
