(SHOWcase) Help Build the NEW Outview News Network!

It was this month in 2010 when I started  OUTview Online,  and what a great ride it has been. We started up slow, and then got to high rankings on Google. We are a leader in collaborative Multi-media Journalism and have scored from Politics to Entertainment. From Portland to Seattle to up and down the west coast to New York and beyond. We have been the little engine that can and are about to jump start in a big way.

Everything from News to Web Programs, Regional News, Interviews, Podcasts and more have all been at

Now, we will begin the process of creating 3 new sites, starting with the International Outview News Network site on its own server.

This site will have News and Opinions, in the style of Salon and HuffGay.

OUTview Online has a huge presence on Google (Thanks to Blogger) but it has kept us from growing the way we should. When people actually make it the site, they are astounded with all our progress and exclusives. Staying independent means that YOU, the readers, are our bosses, rather than some corporation. We pride ourselves on being accessible to readers and receptive to their needs and requests.

But, lacking corporate support means we lack the in-house tech support (and the access to funds to pay for that), expert web development and programming and Social Media to get more followers.

Thanks to some advertising revenue as well as lots of Trades, We have survived.

(OUTscene NW) Theater RE-view: 'Seven Ways to Get There' or Be Square at Seattle's ACT!

Michelle (Potter) couldn't keep her hands off Nick and Vince!  / Truman Buffett
by MK Scott

Back in my teens and twenties, my shrink tried to get me to join Group Therapy, so I tried it once and realized it just wasn't for me. It wasn't crazy as the antics of  the fact I couldn't find any type of the characters from the 'Bob Newhart Show', it was just that you could never talk or get any word in. I did much better when it was one on one and latter a very small group of 4 or 5. (Less than 6).

“Seven Ways to Get There,” a new play (Directed by John Langs) debuting at Seattle's ACT Theatre, was about group therapy with one or two many loons in a Therapy Group. What I discovered was there were either all sides of me or all the different types of men I have dated through the years.

But poking fun at dysfunction and caricaturing the therapeutic experience is not all co-authors Dwayne J. Clark (whose experiences inspired the play) and Bryan Willis have set out to do.

We  have Anthony (Darragh Kennan) the Bully; Mark (Bradford Farwell) the Artist; Nick (James DeVita); the Workaholic; Mel, the only African American member (Bob Williams; the shy supportive friend; Vince (Ty Boice) the sex addict; Peter (Charles Legget) the social/quiet conservative, and  Richard (Jim Lapan), the loud talkative Buffoon. They all have their hangups and refuse to work together.

(GAY DAYS) Will and Sonny point fingers at each other AND have their most intense showdown yet!

Arched Back, Will is on the defensive as a Jealous Sonny Strikes!
Sonny has it in his mind that Will somehow knew about his past with Paul and slept with his ex in some calculated act of revenge.

Meanwhile, Will is feeling betrayed because Sonny never told him about his very significant relationship Paul.

The expressionless Marlena listens as Will confesses his infidelity which she, of course, already knows about. And Kate goes to visit Sonny and he let’s her know that he knows that she knew about the Will-Paul tryst.

Paul’s mom also arrives in Salem and wants to whisk her son away and take him home to San Francisco.
The storyline is on fire and this emotional conversation between Sonny in Will about Paul really packs a punch. Will says some terrible and very immature things as Sonny continues to be one with maturity and integrity. Paul is determined to stay in Salem longer even as his mom wants him to leave town.What is she Hiding? Why did she spill her Tea when she met Marlena? Stay Tuned!
