On This Day 1978 (22.04.1978)

The Blues Brothers (John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd) make their debut on Saturday Night Live, later becoming the first characters from the show to get their own movie.

Hollywood studios used the streaming boom to increase their power and squeeze the workers who make their shows and movies. Now the Writers Guild is on strike for the first time since 2007 to ensure streaming and AI don’t turn writers’ jobs into a gig economy.

In Disconnect, I break down the WGA’s demands and explain why writers deserve our solidarity.

I really hope they go through with the sequel. I really enjoyed the first movie.

was surprisingly entertaining, if not a little cheesy at times. Really enjoyed Russell Crowe's performance.

While CEOs make tens of millions, the writers are just trying to make a living. #WritersStrike #WGAStrong.

If you are AT ALL confused about this #WGA stuff and the #WritersStrike, I implore you to watch this 8 minute video that breaks it down beautifully.
