Marissa Mayer Needs To Get Her Voice Back

The title is not some abstract reference for reconnecting with a global vision… She LITERALLY needs to get her voice back. I’m not sure I can listen to another interview with that raspy, unhealthy voice. And here’s one of the more recent interviews… Seriously, Marissa,…

I’m Back

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…

That’s Entertainment

If there's one thing we strive to offer at Manka Bros it's entertainment for all. Of course we have our specialities which lie in things like short films, feature films and comics, but even we aren't so biased to believe that these are the only…

The Emmys Are A Joke

I had to interrupt my summer hiatus (I’m working on a book so I haven’t been posting in this space for a few weeks) to say the Emmys Are A Joke. I’m not talking about the nominations – for the most part, it’s the same…

The Death Of The Tentpole Film

Hollywood doesn’t need to panic yet – but the powers that be should seriously start thinking about changing film slate strategies. This is great news for filmmakers, terrible news for Hollywood’s bottom line. Tentpole movies, when they work, print money for years and years and…

The Integrity Of Golf?

The PGA and professional golf, in general, is an absolute joke. How many times during The Masters did we hear that Tiger Woods should withdraw himself from the tournament in order to protect the ‘integrity of golf’? This is such bullshit. First of all, the…
