walkwayThere are some —

Key phrases and words in Hollywood that always mean you are being lied to. Here are a few of my favorites :

Honestly… [always means something is up]
Frankly… [always means something is up]
I am on your side…. [oh you are so sold down the river now]
I fought for you…. [i cried like a baby and ran while genuflecting backward and promising your soul to satan]

I wonder what words are being tossed at writers by the AMPTP right now.


[Probably nothing as incorrigibly inaccurate and preposterous as what the L.A. Times has been publishing about the strike but oh well that is another story.]


[In case you are not in the know and why would you be unless you are a film or television writer the AMPTP has returned to the negotiating table for “tentative talks” and every time they do return to the table they want a “press black out” — the last couple times they wanted a press black out they had a press release written before they showed for the meeting and faxed to papers .05 seconds after they walked out so I am real skeptical of this press black out stuff but we will see.]


[During press black outs members are supposed to curb their comments and not say anything inflammatory. That was curbed, right?]
