Thx to @chrismccaleb @terencekrey @davidnett @rwcopple @mhudack @dweinstein21 @ytmargaret @brendangahan for making #vidcon moderating a joy!
Fact. RT @chrismccaleb: If you’re coming to our #VidCon panel @ 4:10, it’s in the INDUSTRY ROOM (hidden in a sub-basement under the Earth)
RT @chrismccaleb: #VidCon is kind of like a high school reunion, for the class of 2015.
I’ll be at #Vidcon later today to moderate a panel on earning revenue as an indie producer. Wore my classiest hooker boots for the occasion.
The “Red State” trailer is surprisingly compelling! For one thing, @thatkevinsmith learned that cameras can move. http://t.co/caiZwgS

liztellsfrank: When I decided to enlist a Mass Effect expert’s help for this week’s Liz Tells Frank, I discovered that I had a number of Mass Effect experts in my life, including my brother Eric. I wasn’t able to fit Eric’s thoughts on the game into the actual piece (because it was already so incredibly long) but he wanted me (and presuming all y’all as well) to know “one thing that’s not the...

Superheroes as a financial commodity. “As film studios dig deeper into catalogues for characters for new films, we think the chances of finding a break out property are diminishing fast.” In related news, I’m looking forward to seeing Captain America!

Out of nostalgia/procrastination, I’ve been watching a couple of old X-Files episodes — just bopping about on Netflix a bit. Watching it, though, is fascinating, because it’s such a sharp reminder of where television writing was in the 1990s. See, one of my favorite eps, the 4th season “Small Potatoes,” is a funny romp about a man who can take on anyone’s...

A conversation I seriously just had.
Me: Oh, hey, just so you know, my friend's coming over to record our podcast tonight.
Cute 23-year-old Roommate Who Goes Out Partying A Lot: Oh, cool. [pause] Hey, so what show is your podcast for?
Me: Um, it's not for any show. It's just an independent podcast.
Roommate: Oh. But, um, what's it about?
Me: Oh, you know, television.
Roommate: Do you ever talk about "Doctor Who"? Because I walked in one time and I thought I heard you talking about that.
Me: Well, yeah. It came up.
Roommate: Right, well, I actually saw him [Matt Smith] at a party a couple of weeks ago.
Me: Oh. Was this one of your Hollywood Hills parties?
Roommate: Yeah, right off Cahuenga.
Me: Right, I heard that he really likes L.A.
Roommate: Yeah, he danced with my friend all night.
Me: That's really funny.
