Hollywood Studio Exec Explains The Writers’ Strike

A studio executive explains the Hollywood writers’ strike (as written by striking Colbert Report writers).

Bloody brilliant.

Also, the AMPTP finally fights fire with fire, and uses the internet to counter the WGA’s ugly smear campaign.

Hysterical.

Not The Daily Show, With Some Writer

Brilliant commentary from a Daily Show writer about the Writer’s Guild strike:

(if no video appears here, than try IE or Safari — or got to YouTube directly.
Firefox has been glitchy with YouTube videos lately)   

 

There’s a lesson in this: Be careful  about not paying comedy writers, as they have the clever ability to make you look like idiotic shitbags . . .

Who Is The Anonymous Donor?

After an exhausting 3 day road trip away, the first thing I like do on my first night back is kick back and relax.

Depending on the time of year, that could mean any number of things. Could be a cigar, a walk by the beach, or a glass of port.

Tonite, it meant pouring a glass of Shiraz,  firing up the TiVo, and watching Curb Your Enthusiasm. Absolutely laugh out loud  hysterical — and that was before I drank the wine. You can really recognize LD’s stylistic fingerprints all over Seinfeld in the plot of this Curb.

I’ve seen them all, but I may have to go grab a few box sets of this; it will make for good airplane viewing . . .

Curb

Too, too funny . . .
