If the Teamsters are really going to honor WGA picket lines, as per this Variety story, the horror show strike will not happen. There may be weeks of negotiations to come, but the entire dynamic changes.
But here is my question… when has this ever actually happened when SAG wasn’t the striking union?

    Well… get ready for some negotiations everybody. This should hopefully be wrapped up by Xmas for all of the UNIONS. If not… the AMTMP (or whatever) are freakin nuts. Pay the peeps, bring them under the tent, and everything should work out fine. Until some time in 2013; someone creates something that changes the dynamic all over again, then get ready for more shenanigans.

    I don’t know anything about the strike business but if this is going to hurt my favorite TV shows (Daisies, Big Bang, Cinemax softporn, etc), I’m going to be mad. But then maybe shows like Heroes need the writers to be on strike so that the show will improve with non-union writers. This season sucks!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hopefully this leads to a deal. It can’t hurt.
    Anyone read Patrick Goldstein’s article today? Let me summarize: writers are crazy and irrational. The end. More objective coverage from the LA Times.

    LA Times? I only check it on wednesday to see if Viterba has posted a review of Osteria Mozza or not. I’m curious if it’ll be the first restaurant in LA she rates four stars or if it’ll only be 3.5 star place.

    Water; youy dont even know what this season of HEROES is about. When you do. You will most likely have your mind… blown.

    Are you you saying that you know this secret? Because this season is pretty lame so far – they’re just moving the pieces aimlessly around the board and repeating things they already did last season (like having Peter be confused and frustrated by his powers).

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

“I have a license to carry in New York. Can you believe that? Nobody knows that, [Applause] somebody attacks, somebody attacks me, oh, they’re gonna be shot. Can you imagine? Somebody says, oh, it is Trump, he’s easy pickings what do you say? Right? Oh, boy. What was the famous movie? No. Remember, no remember where he went around and he sort of after his wife was hurt so badly and kill. What?  I — Honestly, Yeah, right, it’s true, but you have many of them. Famous movie. Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.


One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct. But could you imagine with Trump? Somebody says, oh, all these big monsters aren’t around he’s easy pickings and then shoot.”
