New Year’s Links

Like many Americans, I’m busy looking for a job.  I’m just more used to it than most.

So, instead of writing a real post, here’s some links!

Cracked has the most inspirational, patriotic piece of writing I’ve read in a long, long time.

Ken Levine complains about Standards & Practices, as well he should.  He also thinks he can save the industry:

Eliminate all the middle-tier development people. Both in the feature and television world. Here’s why: They don’t DO ANYTHING. They give notes. They clog up the system. They homogenize things. For the most part they’re obstructionists. Proven screenwriters and showrunners don’t need some 2006 graduate of Sarah Lawrence telling them how to fix their projects.

I’ve heard this complaint so many times that I am genuinely curious why there are middle-tier development execs.  They must serve some purpose, right?

The Hollywood Juicer has a great post about the state of the industry, the potential SAG strike in particular.

Tim Harford has an interesting post about being happy by association.  On the other hand, you should listen to a recent episode of This American Life, called “Ruining it for the Rest of Us.”

And lastly, fuck the metric system.  (Side note: the 14cm is totally wrong.)
