Tamara from “Tennessee In The Summer”

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: May 26, 2016

I just found this on Tamara’s Youtube channel. It’s a video of some of the major parts of Tamara’s play TENNESSEE IN THE SUMMER that she did a couple of years back. Here she plays the part of Woman in this amazing production. She’s all sex and seduction with a good heaping helping of carnality in how she delivers her lines. What I’d kill to see is a production of another Tennessee Williams’ play “Cat on the Hot Tin Roof” with Tamara as Maggie the Cat, then with actor Treat Williams in a production of “Streetcar Named Desire”. Williams (no relation to the playwright) appeared in a stage version of it then went on to do a filmed for television version with Ann Margaret as Blanche DuBois. Tamara would fit both roles of Blanche and Maggie quite well.

Tamara Obscura Celebrates 10 Years On The Web

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: April 18, 2016

If you don’t mind, I’d like to take this time to do a little back patting. On this day ten years ago TAMARA OBSCURA went online. We’ve come a very long way from our humble beginnings as a lonely, know-nothing webmaster. I had just spent five years on WEBTV teaching myself the very basics of HTML and site design. In fact the very first webhost I signed up for had a drag and drop editor with a “fill in this form” for the site to go live. I’ve learned so much since then and now ten years later I’m ten years older and ten plus sites richer…plus some fanlistings along the way. I took a capture from the Wayback Machine to see what we looked like back then, and posted below is that capture. I think we look a little decidedly different now. And I think my web skills have improved. I can even hand code now! A triumph of the will. I’m hoping that for as long as you’ll have me and Tamara keeps that magic coming, we’ll be here for the long haul. As I said do you mind if I pat myself on the back a little….. Ah hell, let’s have a back slapping time. I want to send out a personal thank you to Hurley for her generosity in handing over to me her hard work at what was EVE. Secondly I want to thank you, my visitors who have come here and continued to support me and the work I offer. My gratitude is beyond words. Most of all I want to thank the one person who made this all possible. And that person is the one and only Tamara Braun. It is my honour to keep this site up as a dedication to your gracious spirit and your immense talent, beauty and grace. It has been a pleasure getting to know you and to make this site for you. Thank you Tamara…. just thank you!

“Days of our Lives” February and March Screencaps Update

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: April 18, 2016

A massive update on Tamara’s final days on DAYS OF OUR LIVES. I know I’ve been remiss but there’s been a lot going on and like I said, I’m mulling something over in my head that will likely become another commentary post. So that’s a bit of a heads up on that one. Like I said it won’t be today because of it being Tamara’s birthday today. I’ve got some updates to do at my Stephen Nichols site, and something will be going up on there after the update then likely the commentary I’m planning will likely follow here after I post there. Hope that made sense. Anyway here’s the update on Tamara’s last month on DAYS

New Event Images Added

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: April 18, 2016

A lot of new uploads for the gallery. I know it’s been some time since I updated, but there have been some things I’ve been mulling over that I won’t go into today due to the occasion. Until that time, 006]I have two new events Tamara attended added to the gallery. One was from 2015 and until now, haven’t been able to get a hold of. The other is from 2016 late in February, again ones that I wasn’t able to get until now. Enjoy.

Commentary :: Disheartened & Dismayed

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: February 09, 2016

It was a difficult decision I grappled with when I decided to write this post. You might have noticed that updates of screencaps have been a little sporadic, if not lacking and I truly have to apologize for that lapse. The reason is because I’m really having a difficult time with Tamara’s return to DAYS OF OUR LIVES in her Emmy Winning role of Ava Vitali. That difficulty has been not with Tamara’s work, but with the story line in general. When word came last July that Tamara was coming back to the show, I was so overjoyed. Considering what happened to me earlier in the year, the death of my mother, being able to see Tamara again was that salve I needed for a wounded soul. So like I know most of you I waited patiently for her December return date. I admit I was a little dismayed at the lack of press for her return. There was once a time when a big return like this would get the full court press and all the remaining soap publications would feature a return article. There was one major interview in SOAP OPERA DIGEST, but for the most part they all have been pretty thin in terms of any excitement. Certainly with the waning interest in soap operas in general, one would have hoped that there would be some modicum of interest given how much Tamara is respected within that community, or that her Emmy win would be reason enough to warrant a few articles instead of just one major one. But then comes this article on Daytime Confidential‘s website about DAYS being told to shut down writing until a deal can be reached.

Days of Our Lives writers, put down your pens, er, keyboards. I’ve learned the team led by Josh Griffith and Dena Higley has been told to stop writing until a new deal is reached between NBC, Sony and Corday Productions. The 50-year-old sudser has been written through September 2016.

Last month, NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt and Entertainment President Jennifer Salke told TVLine they were happy with the soap ahead of starting negotiations this month to keep DAYS on the Peacock network. Here’s hoping a new pact can be reached soon.

Despite the positive hope for renewal there is little to be hopeful for from the message boards I’ve visited and or post(ed) to daily. Some are saying the show is done, and I really can’t say I care. With the exception of the actors, stage hands, and other crew who would be out of work, I have to say with the absolute unoriginality of the current stories as well as the lack of coherency of many of the characters and their motivations, most acting out of character I’m not surprised.

I belonged to the Soapcentral message board until today. After five days of debating whether Ava raped Steve (Stephen Nichols), I’m left with a profound state of ennui. Yes they’re calling it rape. Apparently according to many of the posters most of them Steve and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) fans, they believe that Ava raped Steve. This fills me with both anger and something akin to confusion as to what direction Ava’s return was to go in. Given her previous run as Ava (February 8 2008 – August 04 2008) I was hoping for something for Tamara that would push Ava into a bit of human conflict in who she’d be this time around. With Tamara’s run as Taylor in 2011 and how much that story line fizzled with unfulfilled promises and again from 2008, I had hoped the powers that be at DAYS, NBC and Sony would have realized the gold they have in Tamara and the possibility of an Ava and Steve pairing enough to dare to break up the iconic Steve and Kayla in order to bring together two amazing talents who’d be capable of shaking the show up. Instead was I was given was a sham yet again and a huge sense of disappointment at the end of today’s episode. The utter lack of concern from Steve for Ava and the devastation Ava felt at finding out their son was dead. While Tamara killed it, as she always does, I felt a break in me that has left me feeling very disillusioned.

“Days of our Lives” Screencap Update ….. The %^*#@^%$@!!!! Edition

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: January 28, 2016

So you’re likely wondering what the title of this post means. Well it has to do with the reason I haven’t posted in a while. The nice expletives has to do with the computer problems I’ve been having the last little while. I had to practically do a reinstallation of most of the programs I use to record the show and to screencap for the gallery. The other thing that has been happening is this, I’m planning on fulfilling a dream of mine and to do a commentary channel on Youtube. I had hoped to be up and running this week, but due to the computer issues that timeline is going to be delayed. I’m hoping to get that going soon and when I have all the kinks ironed out on my computer enough to allow me to start uploading, I’ll post here and let you know. I hope you will come over and listen and leave some comments and I’m hoping you’ll subscribe. For now though I know you want Tamara so here she is.
