It’s gonna suck for me, an avid TV and movie junkie, but I wholeheartedly support them. They’re rarely celebrated and poorly compensated, but without them, all we’d have to watch is reality television and shitty YouTube videos. They’re just asking for a tiny fraction of the DVD and internet profits made from the shows and movies that they created. Like almost all giant corporations, the studios are being greedy dicks.
One day I hope to break out of this alt-comix slum and get a real job in television, or whatever internet-TV hybrid develops in the next couple years. I’d like that job to actually pay enough for me to do bona fide adult things, like buy a house or develop a bitchin’ coke habit.
It’s a shame that most of the other American unions have been fragmented to the point that the impact of their strikes are almost negligible. I firmly believe everyone who performs a certain trade should participate in one single union. With only a handful of corporations dominating the market, a unified labor force is the only thing that can keep them in check.
Blah, blah, blah. I bet half of you dummies think I sound like Karl Marx. Well laugh it up dummy. Laugh it up all the way to your 60 hour work week.
Not that anyone offered, but I won’t scab and sell my fart jokes to any show. Please, oh please, someone on a show take note of my un-dickishness and read my specs once this shiz comes to an end.
