Really, I'm asking. I've been perusing Craigslist job listings, and found the one below.
I don't know about you, but in response to my TV writer friend (hi Mike!) who thinks I'm not interested in TV because I don't own one, the only thing I can say is I'll get back to watching TV when this type of stupid ideas will dry out.
Unfortunately, like hope but unlike French Presidents' love affairs, stupidity is eternal. Stupid studios, stupid networks, stupid AMPTP please please please settle that WGA strike, there's enough misery in the world for you to pile it on hapless viewers.
Also, stupid AMPTP, why don't you settle with the writers and together go on negotiating/suing YouTube and iTunes, and maybe, maybe lobby legislators to tax Internet providers from a few cents to few dollars per subscription to be reversed to both producers, writers, directors and actors. With a unique agency for both interest groups to reverse residuals and copyrights? Just an idea in the air.
Until then, I'll go back on YouTube to watch Life on Mars.
