"...Adrift is a shipwreck movie that is drawn from the true experience of Tami Oldham, who in 1983 survived 41 days adrift in the Pacific after the yacht she was sailing with her fiancé Richard Sharp was pummeled into floating kindling by Hurricane Raymond, a quickly intensifying and unpredictable storm whose peak winds reached 145 mph. Adrift is also a handy one-word description to sum up the film’s tenor: unsure of whether the sea epic intends to be a love story or an action vehicle..."
"...Are you dying to see Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Michael Dorn attend Comic-Con costumed as his Klingon character Worf? Yuks aplenty for you here. And then there’s Ted, the living teddy bear (voiced by MacFarlane), who continues to wake ’n’ bake with his best bro John (Wahlberg) in between marital spats with his hottie human wife Tami-Lynn (Barth)..."
"...The film screening was actually a surprise, thrown in at the last minute by Frick as icing. The cake was a party celebrating the launch of Texas Film Round-Up, a public-service education and preservation initiative organized by TAMI that will travel the state offering free on-site digitization of home movies, industrial films, commercials, etc., and information on film and video preservation..."
"...On Saturday, March 12, the Hideout Theatre hosted SX Comedy showcase Upright Citizens Brigade presents Mike Birbiglia's Dream. The writer/director/performer took the stage for some improv with his Don't Think Twice cast: (l-r) Gillian Jacobs, Tami Sagher, Kate Micucci, Mike Birbiglia..."
"...The Biological Option The question of whether to deal with state, private, or foreign adoption agencies has become moot for many gay and lesbian couples, who are using biological means to create their own families. That was the choice Tami Brandenberger and Julie Andersen made..."
"...That's all fine and good, but it's always nice to know that there are odder, quirkier agents out there working to bring a little something different to such significant occasions. Thankfully, the Texas Film Commission partners with the Texas Archive of the Moving Image, and there is very little that is typical or garden-variety about the TAMI..."
"...Riggins sexes up the single mom next door... Tami Taylor becomes a guidance counselor at Dillon High....."
"...The day I visited, the office was under siege by dozens of film canisters that had been delivered by the Texas Department of Public Safety that morning; the canisters held films from the Fifties and Sixties trumpeting the importance of bike safety, the ins and outs of hurricane preparedness, and the dangers of drunken driving. Founded in 2002 by film archivist and UT professor (and devoted Sandra Bullock fan) Caroline Frick, TAMI is an organization dedicated to the discovery, preservation, and presentation of these kinds of forgotten curios from Texas' cinematic past..."
"...Because The New Movement’s break-up – resulting from multiple allegations of sexual misconduct and general abuse-of-power by previous owners Chris Trew and Tami Nelson, who also owned and ran the TNM franchise in New Orleans – and that break-up’s fallout has nothing to do with the name of what the former powerhouse of comedy has become: The Fallout Theater...."
"...When we think of film preservation, we usually think of efforts to salvage the content of old movies. But what about preserving film's contexts – the crackle and pop of the optical soundtrack, the know-how to thread a projector, the collector's thrill of discovery, and the massive history of experimental, industrial, and homemade movies produced outside the Hollywood system? These are some of the topics that inspired the formation of the Sprocket Society, a new joint project between the Alamo Drafthouse and the Texas Archive of the Moving Image (TAMI)...."
"...The day I am invited to pay the set a visit, the location is a former AISD school building that serves as the interiors of Dillon and East Dillon high schools – the latter being the new high school introduced at the end of season three. On this day, it's Dillon High, where high school Principal Tami Taylor (Connie Britton) is dealing with a student..."
"...Naimpally will teach new classes in Indian dance beginning Sept. 8. Tami Nelson..."
"...Who doesn't love a cocktail? Rather, who doesn't love a cocktail more than Lovey and Lovey? The comic alter egos of ColdTowne's Michael Jastroch and Tami Nelson swill enough hooch to make Albee's boozehounds George and Martha seem like members of the Temperance Society. Concocted when Nelson and Jastroch were still living in New Orleans and still dating, Lovey and Lovey have outlasted their creators' romantic relationship and gone on to earn Best of the Fest honors in the 2005 Lone Star Sketch Festival and 2008 FronteraFest..."
"...The night we went to get reacquainted with ColdTowne's ever-changing act, Michael Jastroch, Justin York, Tami Nelson, Arthur Simone, and Chris Trew were wrapping their quick and clever minds around the suggestions "Supreme Court" and "séance." A series of scenes, mostly untethered from any common narrative, blew across the boards like a gale-force gallimaufry intent on flattening the audience's resistance to laughter. There were sketches about a judge consulting with a demon, a woman more in love with her dog than with her boyfriend, multiple prayer-answers requested of a god as if he were a sort of omnipotent drive-up-window flunky, a waiter/bodybuilder trapped by free weights while his shiftmate/spotter was in the lunch-rush weeds, all of it more or less spurred by the two suggestions or by tangents off those suggestions..."
"...They'll take them away, and convert them to digital form, free and gratis; they'll return the original materials to you, plus you can obtain a digital copy on either DVD or portable drive. TAMI will then put the footage online as part of an ever-growing resource of Texas' visual and cinematic history..."
"...Mike Siegel is an assistant city attorney for the city of Austin (who has sued the state over anti-immigrant SB 4); he has also been a public schoolteacher and a union rep, and appears most ready for a professional campaign. Tami Walker is a Katy business attorney with considerable regulatory experience, emphasizing issues ranging from ethics to the environment..."
"...HECHO EN TEJAS COMPETITION Texas Archive of the Moving Image (TAMI) Award: Poe Que el Recuerdo (The Solitude of Memory) D: Juan Pablo González, Mexico/USA TAMI Honorable Mention: El Fuego Detras (The Fire Behind D:Leo Aguirre, USA..."
"...First up is the tantalizing-sounding AMOA-Arthouse's Mess With Texas program, described as "a collection of new video works incorporating old films from the Texas Archive of the Moving Image (TAMI) at the Jones Center at 7 pm."..."
"...16-19 at the Hyatt Regency, and will include representatives from the Austin-based Texas Archive of the Moving Image. (Incidentally, TAMI founder and University of Texas professor Caroline Frick begins her two-year term as AMIA's next president this weekend.) The conference itself is closed-door, but what's wide open to the general public is a handful of free events that get at the heart of what the archivist association is about...."
"...Trew's contributions to Austin's improv and comedy scenes since moving here in 2005 are substantial. With the New Movement, he and fellow New Movementeer Tami Nelson have carved out a home for comedy on the Eastside and a unique approach to teaching improv in a scene teeming with classes..."
