``We should start Andrew pseudo-Onsecking'' -JM Andrew becomes the pseudo-Onseck, by Skinnerial Decree.
``Step 1: Start Meeting
Step 2: ...
Step 3: Profit!'' -ED
We haven't heard anything about any new (good) T.V. series. Live action T.V. is a wasteland.
Kat Allen and Jennifer Clay, we have your checks waiting for you. Come on down!
Discussion of movie to book to movie to T.V. to ... conversion, and the wrongness and potential paradox therein.
Jamie (JM) has an idea that, if an author allows a contradiction to creep into a movie adaptation, then everything follows from a contradiction, and the author clearly doesn't own everything, so they lose all rights to the materials.
Discussion of expendable grad students, (unintelligible writing - Bardic?) knowledge, and shelving.
Something with banana in it passes, 2-0-0+Spehn
Meeting adjourned, 18:12 SST.
