Oh, what a week it has been! I'm sitting here in my sweats with my wet hair up in a bun after a big hike with my puppy. I've been all over the city this week and I'm ready for the weekend to begin. Here's how it all went down:
ITVFest: I spent the week attending the seminars, parties, and panels at the Independent Television Festival this week. I will have a final wrap-up over the next few days, but you can see some of the highlights and the gala here and here. Congratulations to all of the winners and participants!

The Web Files: The Web Files was back with a new episode this week featuring the uber-talented Al Thompson. He will be popping up again with a new series at the NY Television Festival, so be sure to keep your eye on him:
MoreWireLess: I think there are three more in the series of MoreWireLess sponsored by Broadcom. This week, it is all about the dongle. I had no idea what a dongle was until I shot this episode (And look at that hilarious screen capture. I look drunk!)
Prop 8: It is no secret where I stand on this issue. It was a simple one to me: human rights. For those that oppose same-sex marriage, I still believe in your rights to raise your family with your beliefs and to
attend the church that shares your same beliefs. Even if we don't agree on this issue, remember the United States is built upon protecting your fundamental rights. It will be a long fight from both sides, but here is a quote from the presiding Judge Vaughn Walker on the case: "Moral disapproval, without any other asserted state interest, has never been a rational basis for legislation." Amen.

Friday: My amazing friend, Kristoffer Kelly, has taken it upon himself to start a Facebook campaign called: "Kristyn Burtt will take Mary Hart's spot on ET". Yes, Mary Hart is leaving Entertainment Tonight after 30 years and I am flattered anyone thinks I could even remotely fill her shoes. So, here's the link if you want to join the campaign: Facebook. Heck, even though it is a long shot at best, maybe I will get the opportunity to show them the sizzle reel to my show, The Web Files.
Now through August 19th: Don't forget to enter my fun giveaway--City Slips for the gal on the go!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
