The Writer's Are Back!

I feel like a little kid on Christmas morning; I want to skip about singing: "The writers are back! The writers are back!" (In my head it sounds not dissimilar to "The British are coming!" but obviously a happy, upbeat version of that particular refrain.)

Yep... Jon Stewart, I luv ya but, as I was watching last night's show, I found myself soooo happy that your writers are back. It's kinda nice to have movie references to films made after "The Breakfast Club" ;-)

I haven't had the chance to check out the terms of the agreement, so I don't know whether the writers got everything that I think they deserve, but for now I'm just relieved and overjoyed that the strike is over.

Pencils2MediaMoguls

I've already made my stand on the writer's strike clear (see my Writer's Strike post) but now I've put my money where my mouth is. I just found out about Pencils2MediaMoguls, where you can send a box of pencils to the six media moguls who run the six corporate conglomerates that control almost everything you see on TV or in the movies. (Don't worry, the pencils are made from sustainably harvested wood, so no deforesting will result from your ideological stand.) I've even put their handy widget in my sidebar for your convenience.

There are also certain shows that are offering incentives to their fans to support the strike. I personally put my name in to go watch a hockey game with the guy who plays the Chief on Battlestar Galactica. Many of these incentives are listed on the Pencils2MediaMoguls site, but also check with your favourite TV show because they might be offering incentives that aren't listed yet.

1 part shy intellectual, 1 part edgy chick, 1 part sophisticated woman, 1 part mental patient (after all, sanity is a type of conformity)... what's your mix?
