About the author.

WHO IS THIS GUY?

Josh Greene is a multi-talented genius and humanitarian who enjoys writing his own bios. After a tour of duty in the trenches of children's theater, his professional career was launched with an appearance on FRASIER, which catapulted him into a guesthouse in the Valley. Shortly thereafter he did some time in the Broadway musical RENT, then returned home to pursue lifelong goals like fame, fortune, and the elimination of world hunger. Josh was the star of Discovery Channel’s RALLY ROUND THE HOUSE, and recently wrapped his 50th episode of TLC’s 10 YEARS YOUNGER. Providing the voice of Jimmy Lizard in the Weinstein Company’s animated hit HOODWINKED, he also penned the song RUNAWAY which was included on the film's award-winning soundtrack. In 2005 Josh wrote/directed/produced THE COMMISSION, a film which walked away with nine nominations and three wins, including "Best Comedy" and "Best Screenplay" at the 168 Hour Film Festival in L.A. Last year he starred with Tenacious D's Kyle Gass in the smash hit musical ROCK OF AGES, and is currently in development on three feature films, a television pilot, and his first solo album. It's looking like world hunger may just have to wait -- Or you could visit ONE.org and help stamp it out yourself!

After spending two consecutive posts lamenting the state of my face, I thought I’d post something that puts things in perspective. Because after all, it could always be worse…

AFTERYes, I’m totally lame. Not in the “Tiny Tim” sense of the word, but in the “I promised I’d follow up on the Zit Situation after seven days, and never got around to it” meaning of the term.

You see, I’ve been pretty busy and have had better things to do with my time than take pictures of my pizza-pie face, but there’s also the not-so-small issue of shaving. You see, in order to provide you with the wonderfully graphic photos in my last post, I had shaved myself smooth. This was to be part of my regime — but after one bloody nightmarish day of repeating this process, not only was I in a LOT of pain, but the large open wounds on my face started to get infected. AWESOME!

All that to say, I haven’t shaved (with a razor) since then. I’ve kept the stubble relatively short with clippers, but I’m not letting a blade go anywhere near this train-wreck ’til I get a handle on things.

So why post today? Well for one, better late than never. And secondly, I’ve set up an appointment next week at the Tao of Wellness, and wanted to make sure that everyone got a good look at where things are at AFTER the hydrocortisone treatment, but BEFORE the acupuncture/herbal therapy. I’m quite sure I won’t get around to it next week, and since I had the night to myself it just made good sense. Like Vietnam, or Beanie Babies.

Sesame Street

One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn’t belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song?

So there’s this guy I know — not very well actually, he’s really more of an acquaintence — but I’ve run into him at a few events here and there, and managed somehow to wind up on his mailing list. Now if I had my life to live over, I’d probably do everything in my power to avoid ending up on ANYONE’s list, and while my life would surely be less cluttered, I would miss out on interesting theories like the one presented today in his weekly message to masses.

What follows is an idea as to what is truly at stake as the WGA continues to strike, and while the real truth may be forever obscured by points-of-view and political flag-waving, it’s (at the very least) a good enough reason to start thinking for YOURSELF about how and why things get done in this ole world. Again, this was delivered via email so I can’t simply provide a link. Therefore I’ve reproduced the (relatively short) article in its entirety, and give full credit to Mark Edward Lewis as its author.

Enjoy…?

What they don’t want to tell you.

About WHY they don’t want to pay the writers.

I was recently shooting for the hit show “Pinks” on Speed Channel last month. One of the great things about cable shows is that the Executive Producers like to come hang out and give their two-bits. Fortunately, this EP is a wonderful human being and was a great contribution to the production days.

Not surprisingly, over lunch we got into the WGA strike and what it means and why it’s happening. He said some things that made the hair stand up on my head (and I’m bald). It was hard to believe, but the more people I asked about it, the more it made sense. After speaking with some industry insiders and corporate Internet folks, what I’m about to tell you may just seem like a conspiracy theory, but it has some compelling truth ringiness to it. Try it on and see what you think. As always I’m open to your feedback and input, because believe me, I want to believe something else.

Silly Songs With Michael

Before I launch into talking about why the studios et al are not paying the writer’s their fair share, I want to let you in on a little conversation that a good friend of mine who is an executive at a major television studio (we’ll call him Tom) had with Michael Eisner over lunch in November. Just a little dialogue for those of you who haven’t seen dialogue on a computer screen in a few months due to the strike.

Imagine, Mr. Eisner and Tom casually talking at Studio Cafe…

Tom: “So, Michael, what’s all this with the writers?”
ME: “Oh! Those writer’s are insane. The only people who are making money on the Internet are Apple and Google.”
Tom: “Well, if that’s so, why not just give the stupid writers 10% of nothing, Michael?”
—end of conversation.

Take this as a precursor to what I’m about to tell you. (Read the Rest…)
