PENCILS2MEDIAMOGULS


Trish put this up on her myspace blog (at least that's where I saw it) and I also got it in my inbox yesterday. I've already donated. Here's the skinny - and my apologies to Trish but she just put it so well.....

You kinda have to be very very deeply buried in the cave to not know about the Writer's Strike currently bringing Hollywood to a standstill and with a seedling of an idea planted by fans of TV Shows they've come up with a somewhat ingenious plan to literally bring the 'point' home to the big studio moguls...

PENCILS.

Yup, boxes of pencils. For a teeny weeny donation of a dollar a box, you can send a pencils to the studio heads supporting the writer's cause. And if solidarity doesn't move you, perhaps the knowledge that those shows you put on your pvr or watch faithfully may only have a few weeks left before running out of episodes or may even ultimately cease to exist....

I really believe that good writing trumps everything and you only have to go to United Hollywood and read Ron Moore's blog from November 7 to see some of the issues they're fighting FOR.

And they got creative - shows like Battlestar and Smallville and Army Wives are all getting in on it by donating everything from phone calls to hockey games with Aaron Douglas to Jamie Bamber's towel....
