Despite Striking Scribes, Inventive Producer Finds Other Way

By Geoffrey A. Citron, published on Jan 28, 2008

...that normally wouldn’t get a query read are taking lunch meetings and the independent market is just as big as ever.

Just because Jonny Depp can’t seduce television cameras with his eyes while accepting a much deserved Golden Globe doesn’t mean the wheels of Hollywood’s bus still aren’t turning. People find themselves in the rough in this town all the time; it just doesn’t usually get national press coverage. As we've seen major Writer and Director Deals, such as John Singleton deal broken every day, other’s dreams get... (more)

Swarming Writers

By Lady D, published on Jan 23, 2008

... support with her two dogs (Theo and Charlotte).

How close is this to ending? Well one writer had a sign that said $0.4 . When I asked him what that meant, he said,” that’s what it is all about, that’s how far apart we are”.

I went to sites such as United Hollywood and the Writers Guild of America to see if I could understand a little more.

On United Hollywood they had a comparison of the DGA(Directors Guild of America) contract and what the WGA (Writers Guild of America)is asking for, which they have since taken down.

Like they said;... (more)

Wilmington Nc Is The Next Hollywood?

By sanity check, published on Jan 15, 2008

Well, the news here in North Carolina is that Wilmington is about to be the next Hollywood, only with state liquor stores, tens of thousands of devout Baptists and a series of social institutions right out of the middle ages. There is a language barrier as most folks in Wilmington speak Southern and only use English as a second Language.

There no doubt are some advantages to being on the opposite end of Interstate 40 but frankly, it doesn’t appear the powers that be in La La land have given this enough serious thought. To be polite, the benefits of filming... (more)

A Hairy Hollywood Situation

By KLiedle, published on Jan 11, 2008

This whole writer’s strike business is getting hairy…really, really hairy. Now that Warner Brothers is rumored to be cutting up to 1,000 jobs and the Golden Globes have been reduced to a press conference, I don’t know what to think.Will the Oscars be next? What’s a fashion designer to do? Some days I wonder if it will ever end. For awhile (back in November,) I was thankful for my freedom, sans WGA membership. As an unaffiliated writer, I could write to my little heart’s content while supporting the WGA union writers and their cause.“Hey, I’ve got no guild to tie me down,To make me fret and... (more)

One Dps Down...one To Go

By D. E. Carson, published on Jan 8, 2008

I was going to recite a list of Johnny Carson-esque jokes about Her Majesty Senator Clinton’s public display of emotion today, but as I began to write, I was suddenly knocked for a tangent. The DPS I (aka the 2008 Golden Globe Awards dinner sponsored by the Hollywood Foreign Press) has been cancelled due to the WGA strike. Looks like LA’s homeless won’t be dining at the Beverly Hilton Dumpster this year.

Nikki Blonski, who was nominated for her role in the movie Hairspray, was shown on Entertainment Tonight whining about how she’s not going to get to... (more)

...a week. Sunday night is the "Toledo Show" -- the more heavily promoted, larger-scale review. But in my Fiances opinion "I think I like the quiet, seedy, Tuesday night one."

Lynne Spears' Book on Parenting Pulled from Publication

By Shawn Norris, published on Dec 20, 2007

... the word “condom...” maybe I’ll just call the local TV station, go out and get a fifth of Old Crow Whiskey, buy an eight ball of coke, freebase the coke and put the whiskey into a syringe and mainline it into my eyeball while screwing a low life loser in the bathroom of some Hollywood club at any the youngest age possible while not using protection and simultaneously flushing my birth control pills down the toilet as my children are locked in the backseat of a Mercedes and knowing the entire world is watching my every move AND then having every conceivable news outlet... (more)

Party-ac Arrest

By TommyTheBlogger, published on Dec 20, 2007

...in the US. Over 500,000 people were injured in alcohol-related accidents in the US in 2003. Let's compare that to what happens in Tinseltown; Rehab. You see, in the real world, when you get a DUI or DWI, you get fined and have to complete a rehab stay. In the alternate reality that is young Hollywood, you spend 48 days in a nice cell with all the better facilities and color tv (Kiefer Sutherland). Another flipside charge was the poor Paris Hilton, who, after more than her fair share of alchohol, got caught driving. She got fined a "Stiff" penalty of $1,500, not even a speck of her assumed ... (more)
