I AM ON STRIKE

IT MAY SEEM SOMEWHAT UNSEEMLY to link to a video of me flitting around in my socks at the Chateau Marmont writing mole-man names while my colleagues are sitting and standing outside doing things of worth and meaning...

LIKE THIS:



JUST TO BE CLEAR, the BoingBoing footage was shot some time ago, in brighter days. While the WGA strike does not apply my book "writing" or computer advertising activities, I am a member of the WGA and I am indeed on strike.

AND JUST TO BE CLEAR, I miss those people in the video as much as you do.

AND AS I TRUST IT IS VERY CLEAR, they miss entertaining you.

LEARN MORE IN THE EAST and IN THE WEST

THAT IS ALL.

Do audiobooks count as writing?

That short snippet of faux-TDS was enough to get me to the Nov 26 negotiations without suffering from the DT's. Let's hope I don't have to wait too much longer... think of the poor comedy-starved viewers.

I'm going to go buy stock in Comedy Rehab Centers.

Or start one.

The best part is the artist rendering of Sumner Redstone. Even as I write the name, I feel I am writing the name of a Rocky and Bullwinkle villain. Snively Redstone.

Hodg-man, Just letting you know I'm supporting the WGA anyway I can. I hope this strike is over soon, I miss the entertainers as well.

How exactly does the strike work? Do you simply refuse to write for the film and television industries, or do you refuse to turn in any writing to the production team, or can you do these things but they aren't actually allowed to produce said scripts?

That was AWESOME.
