What are NewTeeVee Pier Screenings?

The NewTeeVee Pier Screenings, a series of four summer events, bring together content creators and online video aficionados in a casual setting. These events are live tests of how well online video survives the move from the PC to the gigantic screen, accompanied by entertaining commentary from our judges and informative talks by relevant, successful online video entrepreneurs. Past themes included episodic content, parody, product placement and user-generated advertising, and citizen news.

THEME

This month’s theme is NON-HUMAN, by which we mean anything that doesn’t include human actors on-screen. We welcome animation, puppets, animals, machinima, or whatever other interpretation you have. Submissions will be accepted between August 1 – 21. The top six submissions will be shown at the live screening on August 28.


SUBMIT YOUR VIDEO!

This year the editorial team behind NewTeeVee and NewTeeVee Station will be choosing the finalists to be shown at each Pier Screening. Each event’s attendees (both in person and via live streaming) will choose the winner by text message vote. If you’d like to enter, please use this submission form.


PRIZES

G-Technology will be giving 320G external harddrives to the top three winners as voted by the live audience.

The first place winner will also receive a 1 terabyte harddrive and a free laptop engraving provided by Etchstar.


GET YOUR OWN CELL PHONE ETCHED AT THE PIER SCREENING

Etchstar Sample

Etchstar will provide free onsite etching for iPhones and cell phones at the NewTeeVee Pier Screening. Just bring your phone and get it etched during the event. We’ll have a bunch of cool designs to choose from.


FOOD & DRINKS
Refreshments will include beer and movie theater fare. (Think popcorn, beer and candy.)

Nite on The Town Builder Recommendation Pasadena
 

Form David Luna from Nite on the Town, recommendation for a builder in Pasadena, CA

Hi Folks:

As I’m writing this in my upstairs home office, workers from Alpha Construction are downstairs working on our most recent home renovation. This most recent phase will have them laying new floors, redoing ceilings, adding new recessed lighting and electrical outlets and of course painting. Amid all the construction, something occured to me. Nite On The Town members are in fact a community whose restaurant buying power has been aggregated, resulting in significant savings at local restaurants. Is it possible to aggregate our buying power in other areas to reap savings – eg home renovations?

Alpha Construction (owner Baldo Coronado) has already done three projects for us over the last five years. He has updated our kitchen; redone our patio; remodeled our master suite and bathroom. We live in Orange Grove Village and were first introduced to Baldo by a neighbor.In doing our initial due dilegence we discovered that Baldo had done work for six different owners (multiple projects for some) in our complex over the previous ten years. We talked to these neighbors and saw his work. Everyone gave him glowing recommendations and the work spoke for itself. Like everyone else, our experience working with Alpha has been wonderful. Price quotes have been very fair and in every case he has done the work at or under budget. In several cases modifications were required to the existing work. Baldo returned, made the modifications to our satisfaction – at no extra charge.

Here’s what I’m thinking. If any of you are considering home improvement work over the next year why not consider banding together. I’ve talked to Baldo Coronado and he is willing to offer very attractive savings on any multiple projects that can be coordinated into his schedules. If you would like to investigate furthur drop us an email. I’d be happy to answer any questions and anyone is welcome to pop in and inspect Alpha’s work for themselves.

Best regards,
David Lunan

Ultra and Sub Notebooks Which one?
 

I’m in the market for a sub-notebook computer. Rumors are circulating that Apple is coming out with a 12″ screen MacBook. I like the HP sub-notebook. Has a beefy hard drive and nice keyboard. Overall nice system for the price.

Me and my wife already have a Mac and 3 Windows systems. My main Dell system a Latitude D610 is getting old, the drive is small and it is starting to slow down.

I am leaning towards the HP. I thought I read that Dell was coming out with a sub-notebook, but on their site there is nothing there, maybe it hasn’t come out yet.

After I do some research I will post some updates on my quest.

Just saw an ad for RockAuto.com in the Los Angeles Times.

Basically if you “Need Auto & Body Parts At Rockin’ Prices?” call Rock Auto.

Visit the site at www.rockauto.com 1-866-ROCKAUTO or 1800-762-5288 they are located in Madison, Wisconsin, USA.

They show an ad for an oxygen sensor for a 2003 Buick Regal at $15 less than the nearest competitor.
AutoZone is nearly $20 more! included are NAPA, Advance, Checker, Schucks, Kragen, O’Reilly.

These are regular prices at RockAuto.

Next time I need a part I am going to give them a try.
