Manka Bros. Board Of Directors Meeting

Albert Einstein

I believe I am paraphrasing that quote from Einstein but it definitely applies to the way I feel about the Manka Bros. Board of Directors following yesterday's disastrous meeting.  If it weren't for the fucking shareholders and the "rules" we have to follow being a public company, I would just fire the entire Board and run everything myself.

manka_bros_board_of_directors_small.jpgBasically, we accomplished nothing. 

To start, Bill Gates wasn't even at the meeting.  We got a voice mail from some lackey that said he was in the African bush for his charity [or something] and couldn't even be bothered to video conference in.  Asshole.

Jose Feliciano didn't take the time to go over the prepared reading materials or review our second quarter financial results - so he was useless. 

Diahann Carroll was resting her voice for some singing thing and had to communicate by writing on a little chalkboard that she had dangling from her neck.  Anytime she wanted to "say" something it took 15 minutes.  All of it fucking bullshit.

lars_ulrich_small.jpgThe only ones that had anything constructive to say were Lars Ulrich and my daughter, ConnieLars talked extensively about our need to reign in production costs and fully commit to a digital future (digital cinema, digital distribution, digital production / post-production, etc.) no matter the short-term pain or cost.  "It's all about 2020 - not 2010 - remember that!"

Everyone else was a freakin' idiot who don't shit about nothing... especially the entertainment business.

That's basically my summary.  I'm not going to get into the fights or endless discussions about the quality of the snacks provided, etc.  None of it really matters. 

The main takeaway for Wall Street is that Manka Bros. - The World's Largest Media Company - doesn't really have a plan for the future and can't figure out what we're going to do.  Saying this, I believe, puts us on equal footing with Time Warner, Disney, NewsCorp, Viacom (especially Viacom), NBC Universal and Sony.

The only assurance I can give, as Chairman & CEO, is we will continue to put out the best entertainment content on the planet and hope that's good enough for you asshole investor relations people.

Never tell the Street you have no plan. I admire your admission of failure, but I think it's a bad business move.

that's definitely not the Einstein quote you're thinking of. I don't think he even came close to saying anything remotely like that.

Hot Bitch said:

Einstein may not have said that but you know he thought it. Check out Lars! The smartest guy in the room!
