We All Lost a Friend Yesterday

Rodney Dangerfield passed away yesterday afternoon as most everyone is aware by now. He has been an insipration to many comedians and people like myself.

When I was a kid it was Rodney Dangerfield and Bill Cosby stand up material that would just make me laugh til it hurt.

I know we are all saddened by the loss of entertainers, but this is a huge loss and there will never be another person as entertaining as Rodney Dangerfield.

Although there is no mention of his passing on his site, if you have never visited it I highly recommend it. I have also provided some other links for your Rodnification:

RIAA and MPAA Lick

What the hell is with these industries? Today’s article from Yahoo.com:

Here’s my viewpoint, both industries are comprised of backstabbing, money hungy individuals out for personal gain. Look at what actors and executives get paid….it is disgusting how much money they get paid for what they do. I am not knocking acting as a profession, but does getting paid $200 million to work for 8 weeks really make sense?

Back on topic, maybe if these studios, production companies and so on cut costs and then maybe there would be a reduction in piracy. On top of that, the adds potraying that the little guy is the one hurt by the piracy is BS. Those guys are paid either up front or when the job is done. However, the studios, producers and actors often have a vested interest in the sales of the film since their salaries and/or profits may be directly tied. Do you think Joe Smith – Boom operator is making money off the sales of the movie, hell no, he got like $40K for his 8 weeks of work and put a lot of effort into it. The big time actor demanded lots of stuff, yelled at people, belittled PAs and gets millions of dollars and royalties. Thanks to SAG this happens.

It’s Snowing

So it’s been a little dry, I love the snow, but we don’t get enough here in the Mile High City.

I’ve determined it would be better if we received 3ft of snow/month at least in the city, then my Winter’s would be much better. Nothing worse than those freezing gloomy days with no snow.
