Too long, perhaps not…

Its been awhile, mabey too long, mabye not long enough. Anywho can I just say wow, the world is finally coming to an end! Ok, maybe not the whole world but in Cali it is. Those wild fires were the work of the devil and now the belzabub pulled something out of his own pocket that might rock the world of pop culture, I already know it has rocked mine. As Saint Johny had mentioned in an earlier post that Hollywood writers are on strike. This is worse then the time I had to pay 3,000 dollars for some Hana Montana tickets, but I digress. This could be worse then when Kenny Rogers Roasters filed for Bankruptcy in the late 90’s, man that was some good chickin’. Never the less and not with standing I say give those writers their royalties and their lattes. Let them write scripts and movies of joy rather then words of hate on picket signs. Hearken unto my words, many shows are fallin’ and I don’t know how long it will be until we lose many more. I am week and must sleep, until then be good to yourselves…

Thanks to mycoplasma, I have a little time to write some thoughts.  What I want to write about is of a dire situation.  No more TV!  I’ve been a big couch potato ever since I was little and the TV was the best baby-sitter my parents had.  So this stikes me as sucking, a lot.  What is going on, in case you haven’t heard, is the Hollywood writers (TV and movies) are now on strike.  They want to have a deal in which they get a cut of the sales of DVD’s and revenue from online distribution like iTunes, streaming, and Amazon.  The casualties are already rolling in.  I hear from the 10th Wonder Podcast that Heroes is making plans to have episode 11 its season finale.  That is so infuriating since the show is finally picking up.  Mondays episode lived up to the standards it set last season, and finally stopped being a stupid soap opera.  Shows like Lost may not happen at all, since they’d be unable to finish the season.  And I just read a matter of minutes ago that The Office is now done.  They will not be filming anymore episodes.  These are the first “casualties” that I’ve heard about but I’m sure others will take a hit soon, like “Pushing Daises” (one of my faves, in case you hadn’t heard), “Scrubs”, and the rest.  If I’ve learned one thing from shows like Lost, The Office and Pushing Daises, is that the writing is what makes a show so good.  So I hope the TV execs grow a brain cell or 2 and give the writers what they want.  But looking on the bright side I’ll have more time for the blog, you’ll have more time to read my blog, (what else ya gonna do, read a book?  If that’s the case may I recommend  Dragonlance).  And who knows maybe I could get a job as a “scab writer” for a soap opera.  Nevermind, I’m way too intelligent for that.  It must be the cough medicine and pain killers talking.
