Macenstein’s “Mac Chick of the Month” (August 2007): Lauren Reeves

Posted by Dr. Macenstein

Welcome to Macenstein’s“Mac Chick of the Month”. Each month we feature a different die-hard, Mac-loving girl who is (almost) as well designed as the Apple products they love. This month we present you with the lovely, Lauren Reeves, a former Alaskan ABC news reporter turned NY actress, comedian, and model and of course, a bonafide Mac Geek! (How BIG a Mac Geek? Well, she sent us her submission in APPLEWORKS for crying out loud! I mean, even WE don’t use AppleWorks!).

Born and raised on a gold mine in Fairbanks, AK, Lauren grew up finding dinosaur and mammoth bones in her backyard and teaching people how to goldpan. “When I was 18, I started working at my local NBC affiliate as a news reporter and anchor. I worked at KTVF for about a year and a half and then moved to Anchorage and worked for the statewide ABC affiliate, the Superstation”.

“I covered all aspects of the news from accidents, murders, and trials, to legislative sessions, elections, and scandals. My favorite stories were covering the Iditarod, flying a black hawk to the top of Mount McKinley with the Army, and reporting on the deadly mauling of Timothy Treadwell (a.k.a. Grizzly Man).”

Since moving to New York, Lauren has appeared in various sketches on Conan O’Brien, David Letterman, and Saturday Night Live. You may recognize her as the “Mommy” in the Peyton Manning United Way Digital Short on SNL or as Max Weinberg’s 18 year old girlfriend on Conan, or the “Hooter’s Girl” on Letterman. She’s also the guest host for the CBS Interactive show ‘Wallstrip.com’ and just finished hosting a new music show for black20.com. Lauren is a Senior Agent (a.k.a. “Agent Reeves”) for Improv Everywhere and is one of the stars in the NBC pilot, which filmed earlier this year. You can catch Lauren at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre where she will have a weekly improv show starting this September.

“As the Mac Chick of the Month, I’ll admit that I am totally obsessed with Mac,” says Lauren. “It all started when I got my first iMac G5 about two years ago and realized I could do anything and everything with it. I just got a new and improved G5 about two months ago, I also have a MacBook, a couple I-Pod’s, and I ditched my sidekick as soon as the IPhone came out. So I’m pimped out with Mac products, and I feel pretty good about that.”

“I use my computers mostly for work. I edited and put together my own acting reel using iMovie HD and iDVD, and I got my MacBook with the sole purpose of writing a screenplay on it. The problem I ran into with my G5 was that I couldn’t just take it with me. I am gone most of the day and would usually store my writing in my sidekick or in a notebook. How old school! Now I never leave the house without my laptop because I can whip it out everywhere I go.”

“My friends always make fun of me saying that I’m a 65-year-old trapped in a 23-year-old’s body, only because my friends go out on the weekends, invite me, and I usually say “Oh actually, I’m gonna stay in, I have stuff I want to do on my computer.” But those friends must not own Macs, because then maybe they’d understand.”

“I think Apple represents everything I am, which is why I’m such a fan. I’m organized, motivated, friendly, reliable and hard-working. I couldn’t go a day without using an Apple product.”

    Oh my god!!! I LOVE her!!! The most beautiful mac chick ever!

  2. Phil from NYC says:

    HEY!
    I can totally see my office in the beach chair shot!
    Now I must attempt to triangulate her position….

  3. Rowlings says:

    She is waaaay too pretty to be a comedian. She chose the one showbiz field where good looks actually HURT your career!
    Does she have links to any sketches on her site? I am too lazy to click the link…

  4. The Jenkinator says:

    Beautiful. That desktop looks like an album cover. Glad to see she’s a Mac chick. She makes a nice ambassador for we ugly Mac Guys.
    :)

  5. Paul Irish says:

    Take THAT Sidekick! Apple should use her in their next iPhone ad!

  6. Count Macula says:

    Any mac-chick that loves X-Men 3 is hard core in my book. All due respect and much love goes up to Lauren. Now who wants to go see some improv?

  7. the hendry says:

    woah! Love her! But I actually have to take issue with X3, Count Macula. By FAR the WORST super hero movie in recent memory. Horrible way to end a great trilogy. X2 was awesome though. So unfortunately I guess I can’t marry her. shame…

  8. andybot 4000 says:

  9. subcorpus says:

    it’ll be a reality show

  11. stefan says:

    first apple product: video ipod
    fav apple product: imac g5

    ??

  12. craig says:

    While mac users certainly think of themselves as better than everyone else, it’s clear they make no effort to be less sexist.

  13. brian says:

    I want to have your baby . . baby

  14. phungus says:

    ya know if we both had Zune’s we could squirt each other.

  15. Greg says:

    This site is really odd. I thought Mac freaks only got off on Steve Jobs keynotes and smooth mac metal.

  16. Anonymous says:

    sexy

  17. Adam says:

    beautiful. will you marry me?

  18. nATuraIST says:

    She is so young it’s really doubtful she needs the severe retouching wreaked on her images here. On “mg_aug_2007_4.jpg” her cheek floats out of the frame into some other dimension.

    Pictures by geeks for geeks.

  19. Paul says:

    Very pretty girl, but she looks airbrushed to hell in that first shot. Awful.

  20. Chris Coyier says:

    AppleWorks?! That is hot.

    p.s. That photographers Flickrstream has tons more pics if you scroll past all the dudes.

  21. Tony Cai says:

    your the hottest macchick girl!!

  22. Alez says:

    she is smoking : )

  23. Macaddict says:

    *drooling ma ass out*

    PS. for that beautiful iPhone, you pervs…

  24. Zac says:

    needs more PC

  25. small bob says:

    When Lauren left Alaska for New York flags were lowered to half mast, the statewide university system closed for a week of mourning, admirers wept for weeks on end, and her Dad drank a pallet of Jack Daniels in less than a month. I know, I helped him. Afterwards we beat a grizzly bear with a pair of his dirty socks and turned it loose inside his house. That bear lived a good life. We miss Lauren and congratulate her on being the Mac chik of the month.

  26. Janet says:

    Way to go Lauren. You should be the Mac spokesperson. You’re funny, smart and bright and show a level of class women everywhere can appreciate. I know I do. I work at Dell and wish you were the face our customers see when they visit our corporate online presence. I’m in distribution and meet with our marketing group fairly often. I’ll mention you to them. Sometimes they listen. Again, very nice and very classy. You must know Small Bob. He sounds like a real fan.

  27. as11 says:

    Beautiful & sexy girl

  28. cody says:

    holy mother of God!! i’d be happy meeting a girl that looks 1/10th that good that was a Mac User.

  29. delilah says:
