I know there hasn’t been much for you guys, but our girl has been very obscure. I do have a couple of events for you for the beginning of 2014. The first is one final event for 2013. The other is from January 2014. i’m glad to be bringing these to you…finally! Here’s hoping 2014 is a fruitful year for Tamara and we’re looking forward to seeing her more. Fingers crossed. The other bit of news I have for you is that I’ve renewed my domains of tamara-braun.com and tamarabraun.org for the coming year. So once again TAMARA OBSCURA will be around for anything Tamara Braun related. Now I know you’ve likely been having issues with the media sites in the main site as well as the soap site. I had to move hosting companies due to some server issues as well as space problems I had at the old one located in Japan. The new one is located in Toronto, Ontario and has given me unlimited space for all my media sites for all my other sites. The only problem is it would have cost me a lot for them to move the files from my old hosting company and move the files (lots) to the new one so I’ve had to do it all myself. I’m having many issues due to establishing database connections as well as script issues. Nothing is working and I’m in the process of trying to come up with a viable solution for all the media sites attached to my other websites such as my Keir Dullea Online as well as others I’ve created video sites for. The solution I’m thinking of is making one giant site with all included that might give me the chance to have everything in one place and the ability to introduce all my visitors to my other sites as well as this one to the various talents I’ve chosen to focus in on. I’d like some feedback on this issue, that is if you want to leave some. So while I get everything solved, please be patient. This solution might also help me to clean up some of the issues I had with the main Tamara media site as far as the sloppiness of it’s appearance and the adding of the videos. Again, let me know what you think. Would you be interested in seeing anyone else, or is your interest just Tamraa? For now here are the event images promised. Enjoy.

  • [007] EVENT: 12/12/2013 – THE WORLD OF WONDER’S 1ST ANNUAL WOWIE AWARDS
  • [004] EVENT: 01/15/2014 – LA ART SHOW OPENING NIGHT PREMIERE PARTY

 



Just like the title says. Angie-Lindz who has run the fanlisting for a couple of years has generously allowed me to adopt the Official Tamara Braun Fanlisting. This was owned by Hurley for a time who passed it on to Angie-Lindz. I wrote her some time ago telling her if she were ever to want to pass it on, I’d love to have it. She wrote me last week and gave me some time to create the layout. It’s done and up and I’m hoping you consider joining. So far we have five members. Let’s show Tamara how many fans she has. There’s also a place for you to put your favourite role of hers in on the join form. The new fanlisting by the way is called SERENDIPITY and to a degree, it sort of is a way to describe Tamara’s life in terms of her career. Click the photo below to take you there.



I just wanted to pimp my new site to GAME OF THRONES actor Richard Madden. Richard played the part of Robb Stark, the King of the North in the series. Richard’s character was killed off in the ninth episode titled The Rains of Castamere. It was the infamous Red Wedding that bummed out a bunch of the book readers some twelve years ago. There are some pretty funny reaction videos on Youtube regarding this episode. Search for “Game of Thrones – Red Wedding Reaction Videos” and have fun. Richard is one of those amazing new actors I’m truly hoping Tamara gets to work with someday. Considering they both trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in England, I’d kill to see them in something together. Anyway I hope you don’t mind me pimping it. Yeah, I know…I haven’t done a new layout for this site in eons, what are you doing making a new site? Point taken. I’m hoping to get a new layout up this century. Stay tuned.



I wanted to let you know that I’ve renewed the domains of tamara-braun.com and tamarabraun.org for another year. This means TAMARA OBSCURA will be here for another year to keep you up-to-date on all things Tamara Braun. You’ll also be able to view the gallery and the main media site at OBSCURE MEDIA and TAMARA SOAP MEDIA. I hope we have another productive year here as Tamara continues to pursue other interesting projects. I know I can hardly wait. Thanks guys for the ride so far, but as they say, it ain’t over yet!



There is the chance to throw our support behind Tamara at the Shorty Awards, a new online awards thing where you can vote for your favourite Social Media icon. We know who funny Tamara is and how great she is at communicating with her fans via her Twitter account, so let’s show her how we feel about her. Click on the image below and fill out the box. You have to put in Tamara’s name in the “I Nominate” field, choose the category you want to nominate her in, then provide an explanation after the “because” in order to be able to submit your vote. Have fun and tell the Shortys why Tamara is deserving to win.



You can now comment on a post simply by clicking on the post title. I’ve edited the coding so that you can do this. Hope it makes it easier.



Hi gang. I’ve just spent the entire night with my mom in the Emergency Ward at the hospital. Yes she’s back in, fourth time in four months. I just got home but I wanted to let you know that I will be here tonight during Tamara’s CASTLE episode airing. My partner knows it’s on tonight and will be waking me at about 9:30 so I can be a little more awake to see her and to be here for you guys. It might be much later tomorrow before I have the screencaps and media up. I’ll be going to sit with my mom for a few hours before coming home in the afternoon so I’ll be getting to them then. Please be patient. This has been a bit of a hard time for me and I just need a little more time to get things done.

Thanks for understanding.



The social impact of the Reese and Bianca relationship is continuing to have an impact abroad. On a Dutch soap opera a brochure showed up featuring an image of Reese and Bianca at their 2009 groundbreaking nuptials. Here is what was said about the show and the featuring of the brochure:

AMC’s Bianca & Reese Pop Up On Dutch Soap GTST

ALL MY CHILDREN’s Bianca (Eden Riegel) and Reese (Tamara Braun) were seen on Dutch soap opera GOEDE TIJDEN SLECHTE TIJDEN on Friday, on a marriage equality brochure. GTST fan and We Love Soaps contributor Mark offers us a recap:

Nuran Baydar (played by Toprak Yalçiner) and Rik de Jong (played by Ferri Somogyi) have feelings for each other. But because Rik isn’t muslim Nuran feels like she can’t be in a relationship with him. Both of them have started dating other people and both of them are rushing into marriage. Rik with Yvon Terstal (played by Terence Schreurs) and Nuran with Bilal Demir (played by Sinan Eroglu). Especially that last marriage is doomed because Bilal is actually gay.

On Friday Nuran went to a bridal shop to try on her wedding dress. Rik saw her through the window and couldn’t resist to enter the shop. As an excuse he said he wanted to pick up some brochures for Yvon. He wasn’t really paying attention to those brochures because one of them was the one about gay marriage.

When I saw the episode I didn’t notice it was Bianca and Reese. I saw it today when the show uploaded it on their website. The show always does this with letters, cards and photos that are used in the episodes as props. It’s a fun extra for the fans.

The brochure itself talks about how gay marriage has been legal since 2001, but that there are still a few differences between gay couples and straight couples. Like when a couple has children. Only the biological parent is seen as a legal parent. The other parent has to adopt the child to become a legal parent.

SOURCE

Here are the front and back covers of the brochure, it’s all in Dutch with no translation.

 

I think it’s amazing that the Reese and Bianca story is still having an impact, particularly on the global discussion on Gay Rights Equality. It’s only too bad Chuck Pratt didn’t see it the way we did and the way the world saw it. I’m proud of both Tamara and Eden’s work and how they managed to make Reese and Bianca so valid in today’s global discussion on the rights of those who do not share equality on certain levels. The whole aspect of inequality in terms of the issue of children from a gay or lesbian couple where the other parent has to adopt the child(ren) from the union still needs some work. What is bothersome is that while surrogacy is needed in the issue of sperm/womb donor, there should be no separation between the aspect of parenting. In whatever union that is — in terms of two women or two men — they are parents. Once that decision is made to have a child, end of story. It’s no different than that of heterosexual couples.

Jumping off soap box now.
