WGA: Thank You FilmRot!

WGA Strike Is Over

“The strike is over. Our membership has voted, and writers can go back to work,” WGA West president Patric Verrone said Tuesday evening after an underworked pack of 3,775 writers cast ballots in a landslide 92.5 percent vote in favor of ending the 100 day-old Hollywood writers strike. “Thank God FilmRot stood along side of us on the picket lines, abstaining to write while the denial of Internet residuals owed to the writers of According to Jim continued thanks to corporate greed. I don’t think we could have made it through without them.”

“At the end of the day, everybody won,” CBS Corp. chief executive Leslie Moonves told the Associated Press. Of the terms he said “It was a fair deal, one that the companies can live with, and it recognizes the large contribution that writers have made to the industry. That and we just really wanted FilmRot to come back.”

You and me both buddy, you and me both.

Ps. Please be patient, we’re back – but we’re still working out the kinks. :)

    Curses! Why won’t you stay dead, FilmRot?! I conspired secretly for over 14 months to make sure this website was buried so for underground that not even 4Chan would touch it. All my effort to entertain and inform was all a front for my true intentions as rooted out by far superior bloggers.

    But as you are back, I shall make it my vow that until my dying breath, you shall not see the last of The Monach. Damn you, Dr. Venture, for bringing this beast back to life!

    @Dennis
    We lost them in the server switch. They are coming back. Give us a few days to get things back to square.
