I’m sure you’re aware that we finally have a new layout for the site. I thought it was about time since the last one went up many moons ago. I loved the work Christina did, however, I thought a new fresh look was long overdue. I hope you like it. I also wanted to let you know there will be new things you’ll be seeing on the site including new featured images on the posts and pages. Next I’ve created a new multimedia section for the site. This includes a video archive, an icons archive as well as the newly revamped press section. I wanted everything to be the same across the board so when you go to those areas you’ll see what I mean. I still have many tweaks to do across the many places so please be a little patient. To get to the new multimedia site, please click on the graphic below. All three of those sections are being housed on the tamarabraun.org domain. Lastly I have some other things that need to go up on the site over the next few days so sit back and relax. Thanks for staying with me lo these many years and thank you for your continued love for Tamara and her work.



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!

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 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!



I’ve completed the reorganizing of the gallery. It’s finally the way I’ve been wanting it for some time now. I hope it’s easier to access Tamara’s work in terms of finding whatever television show or film she was in. I still have just a little more tiding up within the various sections but by and large it’s done. While cleaning things up I realized I didn’t have some of Tamara’s television work in the gallery. I’ll be uploading those soon. I also have a couple of articles I want to get in there and in the press section. During the cleaning I also deleted a whole whack of files I really don’t want there any more. Some of those files were in the Arthouse section. I’ve decided to not keep those in the gallery, rather, I’ll be moving them to the main site in the Multimedia section. I’m going to be organizing that in the next few days so you’ll be able to find that stuff there. I also have deleted the video zip files. I’ve decided they are going to be added in the form of videos to the main media and soap site. I know there are some people who would like to download and view them on iPods and other iPhones, iPads, Smartphones and the like, but the media sites are viewable on these devices so you can watch them there. Another reason I did this was to free up space for Tamara’s upcoming role on NECESSARY ROUGHNESS. Given there are over 70,000 screencaps in there already, I needed to make the cut somewhere. That’s where I made the decision. I’m also considering deleting some of the files to replace with better quality versions of the screencaps or replacing them with files I received from Hurley when she handed her site’s content over to me. I’ll let you know what I decide. Thanks for understanding.



Happy Birthday Tamara! As we all know, Tamara was born on this day 41 years ago in a small village named Evanston. From there she journeyed out into the world to give us her talent and her beauty both internal and external. On behalf of TAMARA OBSCURA, OBSCURE MEDIA and TAMARA SOAP MEDIA I’m wishing a happy and wonderful day for our girl. Hoping she spends it with the people and puppy who mean the most to her. Thank you Tamara for all you’ve brought to our lives and for what you will bring. It’s been a joy thus far. Continued good wishes for a successful run of TENNESSEE IN THE SUMMER.



I just wanted to let everyone know that I’ve just renewed the domains tamara-braun.com and tamarabraun.org for another year. So I’ll still be here for all you Tamara fans to come and see what’s going on and anything regarding Tamara’s film, television or stage work. Be safe friends, I’m not going anywhere.



Well, I just got through watching the day-ahead episode of Tamara’s final day on DOOL and I can tell you, they did not kill her off. Taylor lives and has gone off into the Bollywood sunset with Quinn (Bren Foster), Vivian (Louise Sorel) and the newly returned Ivan (Ivan G’Vera). Apparently Ivan is a producer in the lucrative Bollywood film industry and he returned to Salem to reclaim his Madam, Vivian. He has a private plane and along with Ms. Alamain, he’s taking Quinn and Taylor off with him. So Taylor has survived. I have to say, this farewell was way better than Tamara’s first go around as Ava. There is the chance Taylor might return, though considering this so-called ‘new’ path Ken Corday is taking this show on, I doubt it. I think the capper on this departure had to be the final scene Tamara as Taylor had with James Reynolds (Abe Carver). I’ve loved James since I first saw him as Abe back in the 80s, and to have her final scene be with him was sublime but bittersweet. I still think this reboot Corday has launched is a bit premature. All the exits in one fell swoop is a bit too much and to lose such a talent as Tamara is too big a hit. As of tomorrow’s actual NBC network airing, it’ll be my last for DAYS OF OUR LIVES. It’s been a good run, however, Tamara’s presence made the show watchable and for me her final day tomorrow means I’m done. In the coming days I’ll try to get her final months of episodes up in the gallery and in the media section. With not having to record each day it’ll be easier. I also really want to clear all the rough clips off my computer to make some room. So all I can say is this, for all my visitors, stop by Tamara’s TWITTER page and leave her a tweet or two about how much she’ll be missed. I will be doing it right now. Hope to see you soon Tamara. I’m going to miss you each day.
