We are in search of a writer who has an irrevocable commitment to succeed in the Hollywood film industry and maintain an optimism to receive your first Oscar in the near future.

Are they tired of finding people in Hollywood that don’t have a think they have an Oscar in their future? That might be something so general that it need not be specified…like being carbon based.
While Barack Obama seems poised to take over the hot seat in the White House, we are hard-pressed to explain the conservative bent of this ongoing AOL supposedly nationwide poll.
For the last six months, AOL has offered up its poll of members in all 50 states. Invariably, McCain has dominated across the country (with the exception of Washington D.C.) And they routinely claim that the poll canvasses several hundred thousand voters. All the while, the media has been touting for six months that Obama has been solidly leading every major nationwide poll by as many as 15 points.
While we are not in the business of either predicting votes or even recommending them, we simply would like to get to the bottom of this question: Are AOL users really that conservative? Or are they still angry at former CEO Steve Case for driving them and their stock price into the dirt?
In five days, we’ll see whether AOL users are gazing into the right crystal ball. Or whether they’re just wackos. I’d prefer that it weren’t the latter as I’ve been an AOL user for more than 15 years.
If there’s a Pulitzer prize category, for excellence in kowtowing, the L.A. Times wins.
Former LAT staffer had on his facebook update, “Joe Mathews might take seriously McCain’s demand that the LAT release its tape if he would release his medical records.”
Good one, Mathews.
Anonymous current staffer told FBLA, “By going after the LA Times it’s one last attempt to scare hell out of the Bubbes and the Bubbas.”
You got one? Send it on over to us.
If this election was settled by which side has the better YouTube videos – it’s a landslide for Barack Obama.
We don’t not want you to not think that we don’t not like double negatives and reverse psychology…
Anyway, it’s the second installment of this series.
Yep, Joe Ciarallo at our sister blog PRNewser got the scoop:
So, we called Jim Della Croce, Owner of PR agency The Press Office. Croce spoke with PRNewser from a bus on his way back from a McCain rally and gave us the lowdown on his work with Joe. Believe it or not, despite quite a tongue lashing from Keith Olbermann tonight, Joe will be on MSNBC this weekend. However, as some in the media have alleged, is a record deal in the works?
The full interview is here.
Per L.A. event organizer Mac Africa, one-time mini-celebrity and professional houseguest Kato Kaelin (remember O.J.????) is down to the final three for a potential reality show on Fox Reality Channel.
The show is called “16th Minute” about all those 15-minute fame types who never got another look.
Mac is trying to drum up support for the former pal of O.J.’s. But she (yes, Mac is a woman) described the show as giving “people who have had their 15 minutes of fame, one extra minute.”
That minute theoretically makes them famous again.
“Watch Kato go on an emergency backed up toilet call at a kiddies party with Joe the Plumber.”
“Kato shows u why these people are famous by showing news clips and interviews from their past.”
Go to this link, watch a preview and vote 4 KATO.
There are three easy ways to vote.
1) Dial 1-888-SHOW4-02 (1-888-746-9402)
2) Text the number “2″ to 33088
3) Vote online right now!
PLEASE VOTE FOR KATO.
Spread the love. He deserves to win!
He is by far the best contestant!
We at FBLA can’t say we’re as enthusiastic as Mac. But maybe the show can shed some light on the O.J. debacle. Maybe a guest spot for the Juice?
I thought you might want to know that despite five letters threatening to sue us (from Wendy McCaw‘s attorney Barry Cappello), we are releasing Citizen McCaw to Public Television. The first broadcast will be on KRCB Channel 22 in the Bay Area this coming Sunday, November 4 at 8 PM. It’s a great time slot.
More PBS stations will carry in 2009. The cover of KRCB’s program guide is attached as is one of Cappello’s letters. We ignored Cappello and have continued to move ahead.
