Defiant Hamas TV airs Mickey the Jihadist Rat again

Wait. Wait one goddammed minute here. The world is in an uproar over a fucking imaginary rat?!!?

That rodent has been a terrorist well before Hamas got their hands on it.

He’s helped to destroy American culture, he’s helped to impoverish American writers, he’s given extraordinary powers to the Overgarchy in this nation.

Fuck him.

He should be public domain and his ass should be put out on the street where he can sell it for himself.

Writers Guild Of America: Strike! Strike! Strike!

May 12, 2007

Studios Gird for Possible Writers Strike
Hollywood Studios Stockpiling Shows for Possible Strike by Writers

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hollywood studios are speeding production on movies and TV shows, preparing for a possible strike by writers and more trouble next year when contracts with actors and directors expire.

TV networks, which are in the midst of planning fall schedules, also might pack their lineups with more reality shows and other unscripted fare as protection against a possible strike.

How much more shit will you Writers Guild of America members line up to eat? How many more of you have to take it in the ass from some Suit who has lucked into a position that allows his uncultured and uneducated ass to boss your educated ass around? How many times do you need to hear that joke about the Polish starlet who slept with the writer? If you want respect, if you want your dues, if you want what’s rightfully yours, you’re going to have to stand up to the Suits and nail them to the fucking wall as they’ve never been nailed before.

It’s time to stop dicking around.

Strike!

Listen to Paddy Chayefsky, goddamit.

A Part Of The Web Is Being Killed

May 12, 2007

Quoting:

Table of Malcontents is being gassed by Wired. You have until June 30th to enjoy the gutted, stinking remains of what was, briefly, the absolute only source of steampunk hentai you would ever need. A moment of silence, please. Followed by a moment of gurgling screams.

Table of Malcontents was the blog that told me of Kenneth Eng’s arrest. And it’s being shut down? Are they fucking insane? There’s been stuff there I haven’t seen anywhere else. By killing it, Wired will be reduced to what it’s increasingly become: A Tool of The Man. Welcome to Sellout City, motherfuckers.
