Crisis at Entertainment Weekly

I just re-upped my subscription to Entertainment Weekly, which had lapsed due to a credit card update in the fall.

Unfortunately, my subscription resumes amidst a writers strike of Hollywood, leaving the magazine a little unclear what to write about within its pages. It must be especially distressing that the Academy Awards are quite possibly going to be threatened which, as fellow EW subscribers will know, provides for approximately 6-8 cover stories for the mag including such issues as "We predict The Nominees", "Behold the Nominees", "We Predict The Winners", "This Week We Will Find out Who Won!", "The Winners!", and finally "Who Might Win Next Year?!"

Now thanks to the strike, we can add the newest cover to the series (which just arrived moments ago): Will the Oscars Happen? Distressing indeed. What are they going to write about for the next few months if they don't?

This is indeed an interesting time in the history of Entertainment Weekly. I will be watching with bated breath to see what happens next!

Just like when major league baseball went on strike, EW will be forced to pay attention to the entertainment "minor leagues" -- like live theatre!

Or, in the spirit of micro-journalism, they may just start covering random shit around the EW office, like I do with my blog: http://340brannan5thfloormensroom.blogspot.com/

Spooky Josha, I am with you on feeilng the electricity of this moment. Hopefully EW will do better than what they did with the issue before the "Will The Oscar's Happen?" where they made 40 Joke predictions for 2008. News & Notes Still seems to be holding strong, however.

Potty Blogger, your bathroom sounds very much indeed like live theater! 1960's style! Fabulous men's room documentation and much different than most of the other footage of men's rooms I see floating about the internet.
