That's what my post was alluding to...haha.

I feel like I'm at Duff Gardens - where roaming gangs aren't a big problem anymore!

Yeah. Basically, the job has been absolutely brutal due to a complete lack of integrity from my direct supervisor all the way up to the executive director. I guess their thought was I'd just take it and deal with it. Nope.

Yep. I was unhappy, so I wanted to make a change. I tried to be professional about it. I still am trying. Today I sat in my office for 8 and a half hours waiting for my supervisor to come in so I could give the passdown. Nothing but a string of emails saying "I will be in soon" the entire day. I think me not regretting leaving one iota makes me know I made the right choice

Yeah ... ketchup and butter ... not even real butter, but Oleo? I can't decide which is more disgusting.

And, yes, more disgusting than the road kill bit ... I live in Appalachia, granted, on the fringe of, but Appalachia none the less. There are still people around here who eat possum, and it's legal to pick up road kill, although most people actually hunt rather than cruise the roads with a trailer and a shovel.

The majority of this board can say that. Pittsburgh is technically Appalachia.

We didn't watch anything, actually, as the introductory course we discussed our backgrounds and what made us want to be television writers, which led off to a ton of different tangents (the teacher lived with one of the student's brothers in the 80s).

Apparently the primary influence in me wanting to be a television writer is:

sycophant 1: it's a triumph of your will.
sycophant 2: it's ok.

brilliant.

figured as much with regards to watching anything but you never know. sometimes they open things up with some nifty clips. i only ever took one film class. Russian Film. the professor died after the second week and a guy from the Modern Languages department was appointed to take her place. he basically made the course an exercise in self study. was pretty disappointing actually. luckily between CMU's library, Pitt's library and the main branch of the Carnegie Library (god i loved that library) i was able to get the DVDs for everything on the original syllabus.

I think this is the only film class I've ever taken that didn't have at least some clips. We were supposed to, but the tangents took up way too much time. The syllabus had us watching the Heroes pilot, but he also told us to ignore the syllabus so who knows.

The only negative for me is that there's only a couple of us in the class that are more comedy-driven and wanting to write 30 minute shows and the teacher has a long career working on hour-long shows.


I completely forgot that the starting point of the Happy Delly episode was that Ralph Bighead had to create a pilot episode to fulfill his contract. That could have led to another 30 minute tangent tonight.

I will never forgive the writers strike for completely ruining heroes. Granted, it was pretty much doomed from the start of season 2. But damn, that show had so much potential.

See, I always saw that as a one-and-done type of show. High-concepts like that rarely age well. Hell, Lost was nothing more than a painful punch to the groin by the end of it's run. They'd exhausted every good idea by the second season.

That and you could find better acting from mid-90s History Channel dramatizations than on that show.

Edgar Rice Burroughs is cool and all but it saddens me that when people hear the name John Carter they don't think about the greatest clarinetist of the twentieth century but rather of a terrible Disney film.

Ya both would have been way better if they were originally written to be 1-3 seasons each with a clear beginning and end already planned.

Granted, I still liked Lost at the end. There was a lot of garbage in the middle, but there were still some amazing episodes as the years went on. I thought it did a good job to pick back up once the ending was announced. Dexter is looking to follow the same mold. Awesome beginning, pretty rough in the middle but (crosses fingers) the last two seasons are looking promising.

I mean I'm no writer, but it seems to me like the middle will always be tough in those shows. The beginning gets to introduce everything and everything is fresh. The end you can start doing whatever you want to do to lead you to the finish line. But in the middle you are just dragging your feet basically.
