Well, Dear Reader, I was going to suffer in silence - for a while, anyway - biting my nails and bravely drinking only one bottle of wine a night over this strike thing without bothering you with my now geometrically compounded unemployment woes. After all, we had that non-welcome-union incident at Sony back in 2004, and all.
Suffer in silence, that is, until I read this!
JenCelotta: [... ]we learned recently that Lost only airs once on tv and then their episodes go right to streaming online with ads. So, writers, actors, directors used to make a residual for the repeat — a part of their calculated salary — and now they get nothing. But there are ads on these online episodes, so it’s all very unfair.
OH, come on, are you for real, evil corporate masters? DAMMIT! I just fucking rented Season One of Lost, too, so I could figure out what the hell was going on last season so stupid Kevin wouldn't make fun of me anymore. Shit, I'm sorry, Lost people. I didn't know. I DIDN'T KNOW!!!!!
Truly, I thought they'd got the DVD thing squared the last time! And now to hear they not only didn't, but they don't want to pay for the interwebs, and I want to kill kill KILL!!!! Some time drinking. I bet those kids over at Paramount would love donuts and Margaritas right about now! Coming guys!
