So It Begins…

Posted by / in Television / 4 comments

Television is my life. Well, at least it pays for my life… and consumes most of it. I’m either watching it, or thinking about it, or talking about it, or making it. Today, I spent most of my time making it, sitting in on meetings for the new season of “1-800-Missing.” We let our star, Gloria Reuben, go so now we’re reworking the show for the amazing Vivica Fox. But it means picking the clothes shes going to wear, the car she’s going to drive… basically creating an onscreen life for this character. It’s something the studio and the network get involved in, hence the day of meetings. I’m supposed to be writing a script for the show right now and writing a fourth Diagnosis Murder novel to meet a July 1 deadline… which is why, instead, I’m creating this blog. Never overestimate the power of procrastination.

My brother Tod Goldberg and my sister Linda Woods have been nagging me to start a blog for sometime. I enjoy reading blogs, particularly Roger Simon’s , but haven’t gotten around to it yet. Instead, I’ve been posting on newsgroups, email digests and message boards.
Did I get enough plugs in there? I promise my future blogging will have more substance, wit, and relevance. Well, mostly it will be rambling about what I’m writing, what I’m watching, what I’m reading, and what I’m thinking. It’s cheaper than a shrink I suppose.

    Your brother’s article was funny! I’ve got to send that to friends who’ve been on Atkins.

    Came over to visit from Roger Simon. Can identify with book deadlines. First book I missed by four months. Good luck with the blog. I’ll check back.

    (Shockingly, the wide-ranging discussion didn’t make any mention of the strident demands made by the “Save Karina Lombard” campaign last June. Could it be because nobody is going to miss her?)
    What are you stupid or something? Did you see the July 2005 issue of Playboy?
    What’s is wrong with you? Do you really think that no one is misses Karina Lombard?
    Here is the problem with men, and the reason that attractive lesbians aren’t interested in you. Men overall are simplistic. Even when you do have the ability to write articulately you often resort to trite and hackneyed remarks intended to fulfill whatever it is you lack (there are so many thing, ranging from the inability to sexually satisfy a woman, to engaging is substantive discourse.
    If you believe that no one misses Karina Lombard from the L Word, well there are efforts by in ternational fans to bring her back, and maybe Chaihen didn’t mention it because she is fuckin pissed that Karina turned her back on the show and yet is STILL considered the definitive “L Word”.
    See this is the problem with white men you erroneously believe that you speak for the world. Well those times are over.

    Thanks for clarifying that. Gee, I thought they weren’t interested in me because a) I’m a man and b) I’m happily married. Oh well. Live and learn.
    As for THE L WORD, it seems to be doing just fine without Karina Lombard.

    See this is the problem with white men you erroneously believe that you speak for the world. Well those times are over.

    You forgot to add an evil laugh (mwa-ha-ha!). This sounds likes a pitch for the next Austin Powers movie. Actually, come to think of it, wasn’t that the plot of one of those James Coburn FLINT movies?
