More good news for writers that may be getting low on goin’ out funds: according to a recent newsletter and more recent blog post, Cinefamly (mentioned here previously by Ben) is following in the footsetps of the Roxy and offering free admission to writers for the duration of the strike:
Every day on the way to work, I pass by the writers striking in front of the CBS building. I usually feel terrible that these guys are out of work, but still have to get up before me in the morning. If you don’t get to sleep in when striking, when do you? I only get up that early when I’m picking someone up at the airport. I also feel terrible, cause I like writers–without whom we wouldn’t have very many good movies, and I found myself thinking about them throughout my day, and how I should bring them the extra cupcakes we’re gonna have to throw away, even though that’s something you do for homeless people, not striking writers, who may look similar, but are actually quite different breeds. Well, I may still go down and give ’em some cupcakes, but I’ve got something better to offer.
Tonight would be an A-plus time to take them up on that as they’re hosting the DVD release for Wholpin #5. Or, if that’s not heavy enough for you, try Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey on Thursday instead. It’s worth watching for Sam Dunn’s interview with Gaahl of Gorgoroth alone.
