Some of the writer's of The Daily Show (and one regular correspondent) put together their version of the kind of routine that the program might be doing on the Writer's Guild strike were they on the air.
While it does prove how valuable a guy like Jon Stewart is when it comes to delivery, the point is extremely valid. I imagine the folks at YouTube love it.
It's been a pretty heavy work week. Missed a conference call with DC, but have been so buried in manga and manhwa that I had to stop fretting and let that roll off my back. In the last three days, I've been working on the third volume of Magical JxR for Udon, and the second volume of a book for Tokyopop. I'd link to that, but I can't find a damn thing on their confusing website and don't know if the book has been officially announced. I didn't script the first volume, though, so I am having to get up to speed.
It looks like this is just the beginning of the return of this kind of work for me. A lot of my older titles appear to be starting up again in the new year.
Speaking of that impending new year, I've noticed people have already started posting their top 10 lists for 2007. Are "Top 10s" the new "Christmas Decorations" in that we're going to be putting them up earlier and earlier every year? Is it posturing to show off how much more in the know these people are than the rest of us that they've seen and heard and read everything that is coming in the next six weeks? I, for one, have decided to abstain this year. It's too much. What does it really mean anymore? There are just too many random opinions floating around, no consensus, no logic. If someone asked me to contribute to a round-table or voting or something, I'd probably do it, but as far as on my own, it's like whistling in a wind tunnel. Too much air at once, I can't breathe!
