WGA STRIKE: NIKKI SAID SO…

February 8, 2008

If you can’t trust Nikki Finke, who can you trust?

UPDATE: If you haven’t been following things on Deadline Hollywood Daily or United Hollywood, things are looking good for the writers to return to work by Wednesday (if they want to) and for the new deal to be accepted within the next 10 days.

So… the Oscars will be going ahead as scheduled!!

Over at UnitedHollywood.com, this comment was found…

Legal columnist Nancy Prager makes an interesting observation: ‘When you watch content for free via BitTorrent, and the companies don’t get paid, it’s piracy. When you watch content for free via the companies, and the writer doesn’t get paid, it’s promotional.'”


WGA STRIKE: WHO YOU CALLIN’ GREEDY?!

WGA STRIKE: SPEECHLESS

December 3, 2007

Yay! The speechless videos are now available on YouTube! Indeed they have been for a whole week and I didn’t notice.

They also have their own webpage now, at speechlesswithoutwriters.com, instead of being hosted on Nikki Finke’s Deadline Hollywood Daily.  Their videos have the same stutter problem on their new webpage as they did on DHD. But the low-res versions are available on YouTube.

My favs are Episode 14 and Episode 15.
