I mentioned the act to my sister's family (with whom i am staying this week); they all remembered it instantly and loved it -- we will be watching and voting tonight.

JavaJ!  That's awesome, congrats and best wishes, I'll do my best to get her votes.  So who else is getting famous?  Hmmm....

Would love to see one of the DC coders go on AGT/BGT and just sit there for 2 minutes and pump out some basic software like "Yeah?  And what, bitches?!"

LOL...Somebody HAS to do this just for the sheer randomness of it!  I'm sure they would get the vote of every DC member here lmfao!

For the final act, they could spice up the software they had been making during the show with something interesting, whilst drinking coffee and eating chocolate coated coffee beans...With a countdown timers going just for added suspense  ;D

One thing that interested me with that comic strip...was how just adding those tiny little eyebrows, it added some much more "emotion" to the facial expression.

For anyone without TV or not in the US who wants to watch it live, here is a horribly ad-laden streaming link that usually works. Remember, it will come up at 9PM Eastern Time (6PM Pacific).

Here we go, just be warned: shields up and at maximum strength (ad and pop-up blockers, etc.)!
http://www.stream2wa...e-tv/nbc-live-stream
Usually one of those 5 streams linked at the top of the video area works. Even with ad blocker on, you may need to click the x's to close blank ads over top of the video.
This one in particular was working just now:
http://www.stream2wa...d=13286&stream=1

I shall not be watching, I'm waiting for it to show locally (9PM Pacific), so no spoilers please. ;)

It's about 10 minutes to 4(PM) here right now, which will be 7PM on the East Coast. So about 2 hours from now for the live East Coast broadcast at 9PM EDT. I'm gonna say that's 1AM GMT. Hope that's right, looks right... :D

2AM it is then! Hard to sort out daylight time from non-daylight the world 'round. I wish we'd just stick to "Daylight Saving Time" permanently. Everyone hates "regular" hours. :-p

Glad to hear you enjoyed mouser. She had a tough couple of weeks leading up to this, she got sick, her partner hurt is back, but I think they did well in the end, especially considering the difficulties. Now to see what America thought. :D

Thanks to everyone who watched and/or voted! No matter what happens the support she has gotten from everyone has been amazing. Reality TV is a really tough environment, but it has been an opportunity to connect with such an expanded audience, I think it must be worth it, with the challenges and all. :)

Soooo... any other talents out there?

Results are tonight, tonight! But there's important info to share as well. Read on...

They've got a new thing this year called the "Snapple Save" where the audience can vote from between I think 3 acts to pick one to advance, i.e. to "save" them from elimination. They are the "maybes" or something. Anyway, if Aerial Animation ends up as one of those, then she needs people to vote *live*, during the East Coast show, to get her through. So I'm going to ask for all your help again, if I may.

As far as I know this will probably happen near the *beginning* of tonight's results show, which means it starts at 9PM Eastern, 6PM Pacific, and it will happen *before* the airing on the West Coast. The stream I linked to above is from the East Coast feed, so it would work to watch that. Abbey said it would be between 6 and 6:15PM Pacific basically, and once it's announced there is only a 30 minute period to vote. Fortunately the voting happens all online, you just search "Snapple Save" in Google after it's announced and you can vote. If you're not watching, you can even just try searching for that around 6:15 Pacific and see if she's on there.

Here's a page with some more info: http://www.nbc.com/a...-talent/snapple-save
And a video, if you have access to Facebook: https://www.facebook...?v=10152473462559760

The results of the "Snapple Save" will be given at the end of the show.

I'll let you all know what ends up happening. Thanks again!

Well, she's in the "Snapple Save" candidates, so she needs votes if you got 'em. One for each Google Account, just like before. Just search "snapple save" on Google.

Thanks!

Well, it's over at last and she didn't make it through. :( It was a pretty tense finale, they were the last to find out their verdict, and it was chosen by the judges. The way they structure the show is just so stressful... Anyway, she got really far and did great, I'm very proud of her. Thanks once again to all of you who watched, voted, and read about this little moment in my life. :)
