Who Needs the Kwik-E-Mart?

Thursday 13 December 2007 - Filed under Uncategorized

I am having quite a bit of trouble getting the time to write this week!
It’s not that I haven’t wanted to. I’ve actually started a couple of posts like this one but didn’t get enough typing minutes in to finish them.


I heard or saw or read something the other day about the on going writer’s strike down in Cali and how that and other factors are causing the broadcast networks some pain.

I don’t know. I’m having a hard time feeling much sympathy for giant television broadcasting networks or mammoth record companies and their continual moaning and groaning these days.

Who needs them.

I’m sure I would feel differently if a family member or myself had a paycheck coming from either industry and might actually be demanding that someone throw the poor dinosaurs a vine so they could pull themselves out of the tar pit.

It’s a great time to be a consumer of media products. We have more and more entertainment choices than ever!

I actually think that the writer’s strike could go for another 3 years before my TV viewing would be affected. At the Noodle Compound we have been getting our episodic fixes from all of the TV series available on DVD. We don’t subscribe to cable and the broadcast networks could go dark tomorrow for all we care.

Last week we finished up season 1 of “Dexter“.
We have been squeezing “Twin Peaks” episodes in here and there.
This week the first couple of discs of “Lost” season 3 came from Netflix.
Big Love” season 2 was just released.
We are still waiting patiently for season 3 of “Battlestar Galactica“.
Friends have said that we need to start watching episodes of “The Wire“.
We still haven’t seen “Deadwood“.

Hmm… what else?

Oh yeah. We still are on season 4 of “The Sopranos” so we still have the remainder of that series to watch.

So I guess the writer’s strike will affect us once we catch up with all of those shows. We’ll be pissed then that Lost ends at season 3 because the strike hobbled season 4.

Man, that’s a lot of TV. I should turn everything off and just read a book instead.

    i am reading “i am legend,” and it looks like from what i’ve read so far to be the beginnings of a very awesome vampire story.

    the movie with will smith, looks to have absolutely nothing to do with the book, and therefore, sucky for it. zombies instead of vampires? driving a mustang hunting for deer? please.

    yeah, I’m not sure about I Am Legend.
    Some of your friends like Martin want to go see it.

    mark protosevich’s had a script back in 1999 for an i am legend project (that was to be directed by ridley scott and starring arnold schwarzenegger) that probably would’ve been tons better.

    martin going to see a will smith movie is like seth going to see a brmc concert.
