Pass the Remote - Tessa on Television Shows

I was raised on television, so after much debating and hemming and hawing, here are my top 5 favorite television shows of the past 5 years. I chose some based on the educational merit of the times and others on the taste of entertainment of our times.

There are those memories [in life] that are solidified permanently. Those moments that, for some reason, were life-changing... One of these for me was the first time that I ever watched MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS.

OWA Team Mission: KELSEIOS

OWA Team Mission: KELSEIOS

A few months after the inaugural 2014 festival, our team decided to pull together all the profits from the festival and send team member Kelsey Hockmuller into space to discover the true meaning of Science Fiction. The launch and first six months of the exploration went well, but then silence. We tracked the ship and it has been orbiting Saturn for the last year and a half. The great news is the Other Worlds Austin team was able to raise enough money to send a rescue mission to save Kelsey and her crew.  Since we have no idea what made the ship go dark, we are planning for everything. Please keep Kelsey in your thoughts. She is screaming right now and no one can hear her.

So, why is it important to see this film at the theater?  Here’s a list

All Dolled Up and Nowhere to Run

All Dolled Up and Nowhere to Run

Somebody thought it would be hilarious to put that creepy antique doll at the end of my bed staring at me while I was asleep. And I would wake up to it looking at me. For years I assumed it had been my brother (sorry Dusty!) playing a prank on me, but when I brought the story up to my father he got a sheepish look on his face and confessed that it was him and mom all along.
