There's a scene in the first episode of the new web series "BFA" that quickly tells you this isn't another navel-gazer about life as a 20-something in New York or Los Angeles. Our protagonists, a group of Baltimore actors who make up the fictional Stick People Theatre Company, have just put on an edgy performance in their partially renovated rowhouse. The audience - five lonely souls - is told afterward by emcee Sarah Pearl (played by 23-year-old Katie Hileman) that cupcakes and beer are available as refreshments.

About six months ago, Cosmus decided he wanted to be an outdoor cat. At least, that was the determination of Terri Diener, a pet communicator in Mount Washington who says she had a telepathic chat with the 7-year-old feline. She also was able to suss out that he had previously announced this decision by urinating all over owner Nancy Fox's Linthicum house. "I was kind of concerned, because letting animals outside is a little dangerous," says Fox, who sought out Diener's help.

HOLLYWOOD - For the past year or so, amid angsty teenagers talking into their Web cams and skateboarding dogs, you could find professionally made Web series scattered around if you knew where to look, and when. (Ever see "Clark and Michael"? Or "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog"? They're still there - go give them a try.) But there's a critical mass approaching: Hollywood is bringing out what you might call the first "new season" of spiffy, corporate-backed series designed to be watched on your computer.

If moviemaking won't come to Baltimore, Charm City's own budding moviemakers will make it happen, using all the means at their disposal - digital technology, eloquent locations and craft friendships developed in the years when this city had an amazing 2 1/2 film crews at work on movies such as "Liberty Heights" and "Cecil B. Demented," and TV shows such as "Homicide." That's the overriding hope behind the Baltimore-based films in this weekend's Baltimore Women's Film Festival. Elena Moscatt, creator of the Web series "Life After Lisa," stunningly illustrates that audacity of hope as well as persistence and ingenuity.

They speak frankly about racism, they sing racy songs, they're addicted to Internet porn and they're puppets. But the colorful characters of the Broadway musical Avenue Q also deal with a topical subject that is near and dear to today's younger generation: the so-called "quarterlife crisis." The tale of Princeton, the hope-filled hero who moves into an outer borough of New York City when avenues A through P don't have much in the way of cheap real estate, comes this week to the Hippodrome Theatre and touches on such universal issues as failures in the job market, relationship troubles, insecurities about the future, yearnings for the good ol' days of the campus quad and the insecurities that come with adult-level responsibility.

On the Web One of the newest Ravens blogs on the scene is coasttocoastravens.com, produced by brothers Soren, a music journalist, and Dylan Baker, a state employee. The former lives in California, the latter in Maryland, hence the name. They don't attempt to replicate all the Ravens information available in the mainstream press or some of the more extensive blogs, but home in on some interesting angles week to week. Last week, for instance, was a post headlined "Expose The Ravens Hater," taking to task ESPN broadcasters Steve Young and Suzy Kolber for comments the author thought disparaging to the Ravens.
