The first draft of my book is finished (more on that in the coming weeks) and I am back on the job here at OnMedea.
It was an excellent summer with lots of quiet and lots of work.
Other than the entire media spectrum going to Hell in a handbasket, there really is nothing much going on.
Movie studios are imploding and on their current tract will produce fewer and fewer quality films while continuing to bore audiences around the world with sequel after sequel after sequel. Don’t the studio bosses know that the Tentpole Is Dead?!
My parent company, Manka Bros., is apparently abandoning original films altogether.
That’s one sure-fire way to kill your business (with all due respect).
Broadcast networks continue on their painfully slow journey to complete irrelevance. (Thank God for football, huh?)
I declared them dead a couple of years ago but they are still on life support – though brain dead.
Oh, yeah, and we’re about to go to war. The world is, frankly, in chaos. My colleague Lester Aldrich wrote a thoughtful piece on the prospect of going to war from his own perspective as an 88-year-old man who has been through two wars.
But I digress… happy to be back. Have a great weekend.
