Emails About My Picture
The post I put up last night about photoshopping my hair in Seashore got me a lot of emails and stirred up a big conversation. Let’s call it a contest on photoshopping my hair and my flickr account. Yea. Here’s what Robert Holak has to say: I saw the Warhol version of your photo on your tumblog - if you’re really giving up on the project you should definitely hang onto that...

Talking With Joost Last Night
Sarah: Hi, who are you here for?
Kerry: I'm with Joost. Everyone at the office was supposed to come here tonight, but it looks like I'm the only one who showed up.
Sarah: I'm glad you did. I'm with Pop17 and I launch Monday so don't check out the site till then. Is Joost coming out with any new news?
Kerry: We are actually.
Sarah: What is it?
Kerry: I'll tell you, but don't blog about it till 8am.
Sarah: Ok, sure, no problem
Kerry: We are sending out the press release tomorrow at 8am announcing our new partnership with College Humor TV (CHTV).
Sarah: Interesting! I love CHTV, but they are web based. I thought Joost only wanted TV quality video like NBC.
Kerry: We are a start up so we are changing what we are doing and premium web video is something we are looking at.

Quarterlife on NBC Next Week!
This is what Bitsie Tulloch says about her role as Dylan on the web series, Quarterlife, picked up by TV: Via www.NewTeeVee.com
NewTeeVee: What are you looking forward to about the show’s move to broadcast TV?
Tulloch: I’m just really looking forward to reaching an even greater audience than we have on the series. It makes sense that the Internet was the first platform for the show because it’s such a huge part of the show.
NewTeeVee: So you were on lonelygirl15 and now quarterlife — are you now the go-to actress for web shows?
Tulloch: I never thought of myself that way but then I did Carson Daly in December and they introduced me as “the Internet It Girl,” and I was sort of like, “Who?” I’ve done TV and movies before, but it’s just that the biggest thing I’ve done to date is quarterlife. It should be noted that I shot the pilot for quarterlife several months before I did lonelygirl.
NewTeeVee: How is it different to act for an online show?
Tulloch: Well I should say that when I first started shooting lonelygirl it was only going to be only five episodes, but because the fans are so involved you just had those three sort of hero characters — and the fans loved my character — and we ended up shooting 15, in large part due to the fans’ interaction with my character.
But they’re like night and day, they really can’t be compared. quarterlife essentially shot as a 1-hour television drama; lonelygirl was very quick, we did five episodes a day. Whereas there were 7-8 shooting days per episode [for quarterlife]. Which is not to undermine lonelygirl, it’s playful, but there’s a reason that quarterlife is ending up on the network. That was always sort of the plan, in a roundabout way. I don’t think Marshall and Ed would have spent as much money on the show as they did otherwise.
NewTeeVee: For quarterlife, what’s your involvement besides acting? Do you interact with the show’s viewers online?
Tulloch: I have a personal MySpace profile and a quarterlife.com profile. I really don’t have time to be involved with the Dylan fake page things (the profiles maintained for her character). While we were shooting, we shot little extra behind-the-scenes stuff for quarterlife.com when I had time to step aside.
I love quarterlife.com, I love playing around on the web site, but as far as my involvement with my character I don’t really have much involvement. Once I told them Dylan would not listen to X band in her profile — it was something along the lines of Foo Fighters. Dylan’s very edgy, would be into emo or indie rock, so they took it off.
NewTeeVee: So does acting for quarterlife feel just like acting for a TV show?
Tulloch: What’s going on with NBC is completely unprecedented — Ed and Marshall have complete control. I get tons of emails from fans saying, “Is the show going to change now that it’s going to NBC?” But the thing is, they’re delivering the episodes just as they are.
The only difference, really, is we were shooting on location. Usually I’m on a sound stage at Warner Brothers or something, whereas we were in Koreatown/Silverlake in an apartment building. But that’s the only difference. It was a huge crew, with people like Devon Gummersall writing and Eric Stoltz directing.
NewTeeVee: So where do you see this going? What’s next — a second season?
Tulloch: They haven’t told me these things, but everybody’s hoping we can go back to work on the show. Right now they haven’t been able to write any episodes for the last few months, so it’ll be a while before we actually go back to shoot more.
Private Messages to your "fans" on Pownce
mkg: Daniel Burka says: We should really build in a way to private message a ‘fan’. I’ve gotten a bunch of really nice messages lately from people who added me on Pownce, but I can’t message you unless we become friends. I’ve got so many people to follow right now, that I’m not accepting most people I don’t know in the real world. So, sorry if I haven’t written back to you… we just haven’t...

2GB Shuffle and Price Drop on 1GB! I'm too late :(
Darn, I would have saved $50.00 and received 5 more GB of storage, total, if I had waited to buy my family members ipod shuffles today. I have a big family that listens to a lot of music and I’m sure they are thinking what I’m thinking. Sorry guys! We absolutely love our shuffles because they have the best design and look fashionable too. Competition to the ipod shuffle does not...

Blue-Ray HD Disc Format Gets Me What?
I’m more concerned with what I get from my storage. We all sink into DVD’s and then no one wants them so we quit our old ways and move on to something else. It’s kinda like Cassettes. Should we save them anyway or just throw the DVD’s away? Where am I putting my files? Do I have multiple back-up space on hard drives or do I put it on a server somewhere instead? I have a...
