More Money, Les Moonves

Seen, heard and observed on the picket line in Los Angeles as the Writers Guild of America strike enters its second week:

Too much enthusiasm: Writers picketing in Che Guevara T-shirts
Too little enthusiasm: Writers picketing with Blackberries and cell phones

Too much fun: Walking the line with everyone you've ever worked with
Too little fun: Walking alone back to your car, with no work in sight

Too literal for showbiz insiders: "We write the story-a for Eva Longori-a!"
Too obtuse for showbiz outsiders: "More money, Les Moonves!"

Too too: CAA interns walking the line with churros on serving trays
Tutu: On the buxom boxing ring babe working a DAY 5 sign at the Fox Rally

Too little perspective: "I'm really making an impact by getting cars to honk"
Too much perspective: "I've spent more time picketing outside this lot than I'll ever spend working inside this lot"

Too much compensation: Big movie stars
Too little compensation: Cable TV staff writers

Too predictable: Jesse Jackson joining strikers on the line
Too little too late: Bill Clinton offering to negotiate

Too familiar: Union members trying to hold onto middle class lifestyle
Too remote: The chance of that happening

Two Days in the Valley: Engaging filmic view of life in Los Angeles scripted by WGA member John Herzfeld
Two Coreys: Inane episodic view of life in Los Angeles unscripted by Haim and Feldman on A&E

Two for the price of one: Writing content for televsiion and Internet "promotional" videos
Two for the price of one: Stagehand strike forces closure of Broadway shows on Saturday, spreading the industry pain to both coasts

Too good to be true: Rumors that the strike will end quickly
Too terrible to imagine: The strike lasting until Screen Actors Guild contract expires in June

To be or not to be: Next year's pilot season
Tomorrow: and tomorrow and tomorrow WGA members creep in this petty pace from day to day assembling at studio gates in four hours shifts from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.
