Cupid and Eros, An Updated Treatment to our Favorite Mythological Gods of Love

Remember that phrase “Must See TV?” well, times have changed and you can watch video content on your TV – via the Interwebs. Well, at Mingle Media TV Network, we’re excited to say, we have “Must See WEB TV” shows from mysteries to love stories to celebrity interviews to live talk shows.

The show we’re highlighting today is Cupid and Eros, as in “The Further Adventures of,” yes, we’re talking about those mythological gods of love. The creator of this original web series, Avi Glijansky, did an awesome job in giving us more insight into the lead characters Cupid and Eros. On the web show page you get to see Cupid’s video blog updates and the Webcasts done by Eros which are just delish! There’s even a parody clip of American Idol – but with Pan, Isis and Loki as the judges, which is also integrated into the series which is now up to episode 5 (released today).

Cupid and Eros Web Series

Cupid and Eros in Action

I don’t want to give anything else away – the Cupid and Eros episodes are about 4 minutes long so you could easily catch up on the series in no time! And get hooked on original programming like this on Mingle Media TV. You’ll be telling all your friends and starting a new trend… and supporting independent creators!!

It’s the Streamy’s! HUH? Yeah, You Should Know!

Okay, I’ve been in the digital media space for a while… in the early 90’s (yeah, I’m that old) I was working in the newspaper industry developing technology that helped newspapers adopt WYSIWYG pagination systems output digitally in one page – which meant you needed digital images… and very expensive digital cameras. Fast forward to 18 months ago when I started working with Mom Bloggers handing out FLIP video cameras and then partnered with Creative Labs and handed out over 150 more VADO pocket video cameras while I was creating, launching and managing MomTV, a site where we streamed live web shows for Moms by Moms. It’s great to see the number of mom bloggers now using video for more than capturing memories but to do vlogs on.

On February 8th, I officially launched Mingle Media TV, a web TV network hosting a variety of shows with content providers who are experts in Parenting, Travel, Health, Fashion, Relationships, Lifestyle, and Fitness as well as popular Mom & Dad Bloggers. These live streaming webshows are marketed and syndicated across many sites including streaming on your smart phone with the ability to chat with the show host and the audience. Many of our show hosts capture a lot of video outside of their show and feature video segments during their live broadcasts. We’ve gone from a few hundred to several thousand live viewers during shows in a short time (love SEO and sphere’s of influence using Twitter!).

The Streamy Awards are important to us as they represent the emerging industry of “Web Television” and how we are all part of changing the entertainment industry. Plus, Mingle Media TV will be on the red carpet with Jeff Rago (new show host) as our correspondent so we are excited to see the event from our birds-eye viewpoint.

The Streamy’s will be held on April 11th so between now and then, we’re going to feature each of the Audience Choice Award finalists and their shows in a special post on our MMTVN blog so you can get to know them too and because they need your vote… we all need your vote. You will be supporting not only the amazing talent that are nominated but supporting the efforts of your digital peers as they follow their passion in creating video for more than capturing memories, but sharing opinions, ideas, interviews, and more.

Oh and if you want to host a live web TV show on Mingle Media TV – connect with @MingleMediaTV or email stephanie@minglemediatv.com with your idea.
