Nikki Finke’s new column up at Deadline Hollywood Daily reports that heavy hitter agents at the big companies are trying to bring the WGA and the AMPTP back to the table. We’ll see how this goes. The studios left the bargaining process. We’ve been waiting for them to come back all along. But we’ll see… […]
I was going to comment on Digby’s excellent post from the other day discussing the solidarity between union members of both the white and blue collar variety in California. America needs more unions. More unions mean less profit-driven at the cost of workers’ good bullshit by the corporations they work for. But instead, I offer […]
As the first week of WGA Strike 2007 comes to a close following the magnificent rally at Fox/NewsCorp on both coasts today, I finally have a chance to sit down and read up on things. Governor Schwarzenegger is pissed. Mayor Villaraigosa is pissed. You can’t blame them. I don’t know the effect on the massively […]

Our most excellent brethren at United Hollywood have put together a simple petition where you, the viewing audience, can sign and show your support. Check it out! Massive rally at Fox Studios in LA and in front of NewsCorp headquarters here in NYC today. The struggle continues!

I love Craig Mazin’s blog, THE ARTFUL WRITER. I don’t know what the proper ‘nettiquite’ is for reposting something like this, but I wanted to have this here so friends, family and those I work with could better… if not best understand what’s at stake in the current labor negotiations and why this well might […]
The good people at IGN have a great review of the forthcoming TRIPPER DVD. Here’s a snip: It’s a shame when good films either don’t get the kind of recognition they deserve or find themselves buried beneath a lot of other crap projects that make it difficult for audiences to have an opportunity to check […]
It’s not quite the same as watching them clinch the AL East title (which they’ve done every year since 1998)… but watching Boston slowly gag on success (let alone, the cross-town Mets whom the papers had all but crowned the new kings of the city before their bullpen and confidence imploded) has been almost as […]
…and we fucking rock this year! Bring it ON!
