Matthew Cornwell & Brooke Jaye Taylor in "Becky & Barry: The Series"
Ever wonder how actors stay so optimistic on the typically bumpy and never-ending road to stardom?

That’s exactly what you’ll explore in the first three seasons of the comedy web series “BECKY & BARRY: THE SERIES.”

The series comes from Atlanta-based creators/ producers/ stars Matthew Cornwell and Brooke Jaye Taylore (a real-life husband and wife), who engaged Jay D Zimmerman to direct the episodes. No doubt some of the antics are based on their actual experiences and they also brought some special guests along for the ride, including Mark Fincannon (North Carolina-based Casting Director), Ryan Glorioso (New Orleans-based Casting Director), RonReaco Lee (star of the hit Starz show “Survivor's Remorse”), Tanya Boniface (Brittish pop star and member of the girl band The 411) and Brian Beegle (Atlanta-based Casting Director at Stilwell Casting).

I recently caught up with Matthew Cornwell to find out more about “Becky & Barry: The Series.”

Taylor Brock
Women really can lead a tech company…seriously! And, the new original YouTube web series “NEXT” is out to show you.

The series comes from a female team, including actors Taylor Brock, Anne Hallinan and Lisa-Marie Newton, who co-created and star in the project. Writer/Director Serena Shulman first developed the concept, which she based on her own experiences in the tech industry.

I recently caught up with Taylor Brock to find out more about “Next.”


Give us an overview of your new project “NEXT, the web series.”

TAYLOR: NEXT chronicles what happens as the male-dominated tech world gets an injection of female leadership. It’s a scripted 5 episode dramedy created, written, directed, and produced by women about a Silicon Valley Tech start-up led by women. The season begins when the company CONNEXT, which has created a personal assistant device, the YES DEAR (voiced in a loving man’s voice after each request), goes on a retreat at a pivotal time to regroup…ironically, without any mobile device.

"Act-Anon" - poster
Calling all Actors! No…not for an audition, but instead to check out the hilarious new web series “Act-Anon.”

This fictional saga follows members of a 12-step style program for friends and family of actors addicted to their craft. Actress Camille Thornton-Alson created the series based on real-life experiences, but isn’t looking to poke fun at actors…just simply laugh along with them.

Camille adds, "I love actors and our craft. I wanted to create a fun and exciting platform for some newer talent to be seen. And, because it’s directly related to the industry, I thought it would be fun to give everyone a midday chuckle.”

Camille stars in the project and has brought in some seriously funny talent for the ensemble cast, including Katie Featherston (“Paranormal Activity” franchise), Matt Iseman (“American Ninja Warrior” host/comedian), Francesca Manzi, Courtney Cook, Emily Habeck, Tyler Langdon, Brian Houtz, Courtney Cunningham, Amy Baklini, Daved Wilkins and Gail Bryson.

"Bad Therapy" - poster
Looking for ‘Bad Therapy’? Well, I’ve found it!

Actress Kaylee Sapieha is offering up some not-so-sound advice in her brand new comedy web series, “Bad Therapy.” Based loosely on some real-life experiences and a friend’s mock therapy session as part of a school project, Kaylee proves that not all therapy is equal starring as the problem-creating Therapist, Pipa Whistler. Dealing with some pretty major issues, like alcohol, drug addiction, lying, depression and anxiety, the series offers up something for everyone to laugh about.

Kaylee adds, “I loved working on this project for many reasons. One being that I got to immerse myself in the world on the other side of the camera; and another is that I had the opportunity to work with some amazingly talented artists to create something we could all be proud of and that resulted in a lot of laughter.”

The 5-episode show comes from Kaylee and co-creator and director Thomas O’Leary and is currently viewable at: link

Actor Zack Gold is rising fast among the web television industry recently receiving a nomination for ‘Best Male Performance’ in a Comedy by The International Academy of Web Television for his role in “Stockholm.” The IAWTV Awards event serves as a platform for members to honor the best of their profession, so it’s no surprise that Gold was thrilled with the nod which came out of the more than 470 officially-submitted web series.

Gold is a notable rising actor in Hollywood having held lead roles in six feature films. This past year he was nominated for Best Actor at the Los Angeles Fear and Fantasy Festival for his role in the movie “Fear Lives Here.” Gold also works with Academy Award Winner Tim Robbins on stage, as a member of renowned Actorsʼ Gang Theatre Company in Los Angeles.

I recently had a chance to catch up with Zack Gold to find out more about this nomination, what he hopes to gain from it and how he creates such memorable performances.

HOLLY: For those who haven’t seen it yet, tell us about your role in the hit webseries “Stockholm.”

"Airport Douchery" - (L-R): Alice Toohey, Sonora Chase, Jennifer Lee Weaver
‘Tis the season…for travel nightmares! And, with that actress/creator Sonora Chase has set out to humorously commiserate with anyone heading to the airport this holiday season, launching her new comedy web series “Airport Douchery.” The three part series takes flight on YouTube November 14th, followed by FunnyOrDie.com on November 17th.

In addition to creating her own work, Chase portrayed ‘Betty’ on ABC’s “Romantically Challenged,” worked with legendary director Martin Scorsese for a role on HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire,” and appeared on the NBC series “Chuck.” She was also seen earlier this year in Erin Greenwell’s 2012 Sundance Int’l Film Festival official selection “My Best Day,” which also won ‘Best Film’ at the Portland Women’s Film Fest. Chase is a graduate of the famed improv group Upright Citizens’ Brigade in New York and holds an M.F.A. in Acting from Brooklyn College.

I recently caught up with Sonora Chase to ask her about “Airport Douchery,” what made her want to create it and why she’s willing to share all the details in her blog.

A lawyer married a woman who had previously divorced ten husbands.

On their wedding night, she told her new husband, "Please be gentle, I'm still a virgin."

"What?" said the puzzled groom.

"How can that be if you've been married ten times?"

"Well, Husband #1 was a sales representative: he kept telling me how great it was going to be.

Husband #2 was in software services: he was never really sure how it was supposed to function, but he said he'd look into it and get back to me.

Husband #3 was from field services: he said everything checked out diagnostically but he just couldn't get the system up.

Husband #4 was in telemarketing: even though he knew he had the order, he didn't know when he would be able to deliver.

Husband #5 was an engineer: he understood the basic process but wanted three years to research, implement, and design a new state-of-the-art method.

Husband #6 was from finance and administration: he thought he knew how, but he wasn't sure whether it was his job or not.

It was at the end of the school year, and a kindergarten teacher was receiving gifts from her pupils.
The florist's son handed her a gift. She shook it, held it overhead, and said, "I bet I know what it is. Some flowers." "
That's right" the boy said, "but how did you know?"
"Oh, just a wild guess," she said.
The next pupil was the candy shop owner's daughter.
The teacher held her gift overhead, shook it, and said, "I bet I can guess what it is. A box of sweets."
"That's right, but how did you know?" asked the girl.
"Oh, just a wild guess," said the teacher.
The next gift was from the son of the liquor store owner. The teacher held the package overhead, but it was leaking. She touched a drop of the leakage with her finger and touched it to her tongue.
"Is it wine?" she asked.
"No," the boy replied, with some excitement.
The teacher repeated the process, taking a larger drop of the leakage to her tongue.

A popular illustration of Catoast antigravity device (taken from uncyclopedia - creator did not provide his name)
Long-standing scientific theory holds that a combination of Murphy's Law ("if something bad can happen, it will"), Finagle's Corollary to Murphy's Law ("if a buttered piece of toast is dropped, it will always land butter side down") and the old saw that "a cat always lands on its feet" would result in either a perpetual motion device or a method of levitation involving a cat with buttered toast strapped to its back. The theory goes that the two conditions ("the cat will land on its feet" and "the toast will land on the butter") create a conundrum exception to physical laws, since both conditions MUST be true and both conditions CANNOT be true. Instead of landing, the toasty cat hovers in mid-air. This paper, submitted on 15 May 2009, will discuss the state of the art and the ramifications of recent experimental evidence that casts doubt on this established theory for achieving anti-gravity effects.

The state of the art of Murphy's Law research has recently improved, allowing more specific experimental observation. While it has long been known that cats land on their feet due to the counter-balanced torque provided by a motile tail (leading to the popular theory that...

The following are actual examples from Children's Essays I have read. The writing prompt was: tell a story about a lost puppy. The children involved were from 3rd to 6th Grade. Enjoy.

Recess. All the calm the kids kept during school was let out with squeals, screams and running wildly about.

We went out to the playground. I watched in disgust as Erica took a big bite out of her peanut butter, marshmallow and black olive sandwich.

Suddenly I hear a little wine and a big whale coming from behind the slide.

We saw a dog that looked Hispanic. He was so dehydrated that he gained five pounds when I spit on him. It was a black and brown pit bull with fluffy white ears.

The dog was so skinny he couldn't put anything in his rib cage.

His head was the size of a cauldron. The first word that came to mind was Hydrocephalous.

Fear now filled my body as I saw it. It was more horrible than Brussels Sprouts.
