tv violenceIt is SAG Monday.

This is the day Screen Actor’s Guild [SAG] sends out its strike authorization ballot and announces the strike authorization time table.

Actors have been working for half a year without a new contract while SAG tried to negotiate with AMPTP and SAG tried pretty hard but appaently AMPTP is being just as dickish with the actors as it was with the writers.

What a strike means to you : Good-bye Oscars. Good-bye shows.

What a strike means to Hollywood : We are all going to starve.

    I knew there was a reason I got rid of cable. My rabbit ears can’t even pick up on the regular channels! Guess if I have to suffer…

    Okay, seriously? That sucks although I’m sure some crazy right wing lunatics are gleeful at the idea of Hollywood starving.
