Sumner Redstone’s Holiday Party

Over the weekend, I went to Sumner Redstone’s Holiday Party at Bob’s Big Boy in Burbank.  It was a pretty sad event with only a few of the invited guests bothering to show up. Sumner kept staring at the front door and mumbled over and…

Hollywood Is Out Of Visionaries

UPDATE:  And now we can add Bob Iger to the list below. The coward couldn’t stick it out like a real mogul would.  Real moguls don’t retire. ——– This morning, about 11:00, I had an epiphany. I was trying to think of someone in this…

You social media punks make me sick! It’s time for those of us in old media to fight back so we can return to making films and TV shows like the old days. You people need to realize that fragmentation blows and loss of creative…

Manka Bros. Would Like To Offer Judy McGrath A Job
