    STR #150 08/27/13 “In her WRITE mind”, Dara Creasey, Writer

    in Television

    WHO can somehow make us want something we [the audience] didn’t even know we wanted?
    WHAT can compel us to think/feel.. all the while taking us along a journey without even leaving our home?
    WHEN can we root for some thing/one from our very core with sincere emotion all without even personally being involved?
    WHERE do motives, back stories, complex complicated circumstances have us willing to endure twists and turns only to careen down valleys and scale the highest of highs via our minds and hearts?
    HOW can we be soooo enamored and identify with a vast array of fictitious characters?
    WHY… it’s a “Story”, images of “Storytelling”, written by a creative “StoryTELLER”, a WRITER!
    Tonight’s STR special guest is one of Castle’s newest members to their writing team, Dara Creasey!  She will literally be putting words in Stana’s mouth as Kate Beckett in Season 6 and will no doubt continue to take us on this FANtastic “Castle” journey we love so much.
    We'll be asking Dara some questions first during our interview and we'll give YOU an opportunity as well – please have your questions [no spoilers] ready. Help us give a warm welcome to Dara [rhymes with Sarah]

    show title reference: Dara is left handed, thus right-hemisphere dominance for brain function in a holistic thinking mode which doubles emotion and creativity. Win,Win!

    Let's talk DIY repurposing ideas with Anitra Mecadon & Tara Dara

    in Design

    Repurposing ideas are like little gems falling from the sky, and we're talking with two creative experts on this episode.

    We are sharing repurposing ideas for both the newbie repurposer and the experienced. And on this episode, we put two repurposing experts -- Anitra Mecadon and Tara Dara -- to our unconventional repurposing ideas test.

    Pop quiz: What could you make out of these?

    Fishing rod
    Pool cue and billiard balls
    Swim floaties
    Charcoal barbeque lid

    (Tweet us your answer for a chance to win $25 gift card)

    Anitra Mecadon, the bubbly and fiercely fun host and designer from DIY Network's 'Mega Dens' is sharing repurposing ideas for everything from old doors to fishing rods. She's contributed to HGTV’s All American Handyman, HGTV’s Behind the Build Dream House, HGTV’s Behind the Build Smart Home, HGTV’s Raise the Roof College Challenge and more. Whether she’s dangling from a scaffold or breaking down a concrete wall, Anitra’s rock ‘n’ roll approach gives her an edge not usually found in most designers.

    Tara Dara makes magic out of discarded objects she finds on walks through her neighborhood, and is crazy-good at sewing. She also studied faux finishing and mural painting, raku pottery, photography, and even Play Doh. Tara shaved her head for St Baldricks Day 2014 to raise money for Childhood Cancer Research. She's shared her expertise with The Rachael Ray show, sewing ideos for PBS, various DVDs, online sewing videos, and as one of Bob Vila’s Bloggers.

    STR #223 10/06/15 S8e03 "PhDead" Recap

    in Television

    Who would have thought we'd be seeing "I Love Lucy" on our timelines for our favorite TV show #Castle? No, it's not a Beckett Replacement. But definitely is giving the "Clark Kent"-ish looking Rick some "food for thought" on his own musings.

    Hopefully, you watched last night's episode of Castle Season 8, "PhDead" 803 - Written by Chad Gomez Creasey and Directed by Executive Producer Rob Bowman and YOU can join us in tonight's STR Round Table.

    Season 8 has been some-what of a polarizing Castle Season to many fans and some are still wrapping our minds around the Character-Shake-Ups we’ve “experienced” with them and yet, VERY curious as to where the new Show Runners, Winter/Haley, are taking us all in this new direction for our favorites.

               Here are Elena’s questions for you to review before tonight's discussion begins:

    in Culture

    ENVISION THIS: The beating heart of Terra Nova is the sacred alliance of all living beings.

    “All beings are organs within the body of the great family of life,” writes Dieter Duhm in his book, Terra Nova: Global Revolution and the Healing of Love.  Our guests,  Martin Winiecki, Naila von Mendelssohn, and Dara Silverman, are here in the United States from their home at Tamara in Portugal to celebrate the publication of the English version of this great book. 

    Terra Nova means the “New Earth” these folks propose to foster upon the collapse of globalized corporate domination.  They currently live at Tamara, the first “healing biotope” that is currently serving as a “greenhouse of trust” for the coming new era.

    Terra Nova foresees a coming apocalypse brought on by the global idiocy and spread of fascism that is currently threatening to engulf our economy, ecology, politics, and culture.  It also projects the arising of “The Universal Human Being”  who will function as the “eyes of evolution” in consort with all living beings to co-create the New Earth.
