Writer's Strike..

So a lot of you probably already know my opinions on the big strike in Hollywood/NY right now, but in case you don't, here's a quick Twichie rundown.

One hundred percent behind the writers. I have been on the front lines of writing for the entertainment industry and I've seen the discrepancies about DVD pricing, residuals and how the writers are at the bottom of the barrel. I've also seen how webisodes and internet programming fall 'between the cracks' and can, in many cases, mean writers aren't getting paid for their work.

Now that being said, I'm not a member of WGA despite the fact that I have enough credits to do so. The WGA is fantastic for those professional writers who are making enough money to easily cover the dues yearly and who are working with people who are able to pay those 'minimum' payments for scripts and writing. The people I've been working with wouldn't be able to and it would be prohibitive to my career at this point. I can't gain experience and a 'foot in the door' if the people who are hiring me have to pay union salaries. So maybe later after I've won the Academy Award...

But for now? Totally one hundred percent with the writers on this one - and hoping it turns out well. The industry needs to realize there'd be nothing TO produce, act or direct without writers. They're the core of the industry if you ask me - so about time we got the respect deserved...

Once again I'm reminded that I have lots of friends at this blog and that they're virtually ignored when the blog is, so here I am - updating with another promise/hope to keep up with things again.

Although to be fair I haven't kept up with anything lately at all. Double pneumonia and a hospital stay will do that though. Throw in a five year old that does time in the hospital a week later cause no one even realized she was sick and that can really mess up your schedule. (How sick was she? Well, she was walking OUT of a doctor's appointment with just a 'minor cough' and collapsed in the doorway. The doctor had no idea she was so ill either. Nice eh?)

And yesterday a really good friend, some may know her as Christiarc from the Farscape campaign, became a widow. Her husband had cancer but his death was very unexpected. His health was going downhill, but the doctors had just assured her that they thought he'd make it until Christmas because he was so strong and, it seemed, handling everything okay. She said it was very quick and no one saw it coming. One second he was breathing and the next exhale he didn't breathe in. No big struggle or crash. Just....suddenly not there. She's shattered obviously - prayers would be appreciated. And hug someone you love today.

Virtual hugs to all my friends out there. Love you guys.

You know, I really need to get into the habit of updating more often...

But with this blog, my LJ, my myspace and all my business accounts, one of them is going to suffer! I guess this is it. Long Way Round is a good title then eh?

Anyway, wanted to share some cool news. My friends, Peter and Becky are FINALLY in Liberia picking up their kids!!! They have adopted three GORGEOUS children from Liberia and have been waiting months upon month upon months for all the red tape to go through and this week - they finally got to see their babies! So YAY!!!

Business is going well for me. I've got a couple of new movies I'm promoting. One is The Prodigy and the other is Americanizing Shelley . Both of them are really great movies but in completely different ways.

DW Moffett's website is up. and he's starring in the season finale of Grey's Anatomy. We're really happy about that because it's a set up for the new Kate Walsh spin off, so there's a chance of a recurring character there. And his series, Hidden Palms, has an airdate. It will premiere on the CW Network on May 30th.

Everything's going well at home too. I have too many Do It Yourself projects to keep up with, but what else is new? Better to have those projects to do than to not be able to do DIY. If you've ever lived in military housing, you know what I mean.

So that's about it. Anyone out there still reading?

It's been a long time since I've been here. But I've been busy. I've started a business ( and written two screenplays and gotten several new clients...

So life is good. Anyone out there still watching this blog?? Let me know so I can figure out whether to update here or know.
