people are stepping down. feelings are getting hurt.
let me tell you right now. i do NOT want to head up Disney. send the wheelbarrows home. send the dancing girls back to where they belong. and for the love of pete send Pluto back. i like Goofy, not Pluto.
plus i just want to write. i just want to travel the globe. i just want to blog.
i dont want to fix Disney.
i would blog about Disney. i would blog about Hollywood Records. I would blog about Tsar touring on Hollywood Records with what will most probably be the hottest rock record of 2004. but im not going to fix the mouse.
if i were to fix the mouse i would start with bible stories. disney loves to take old, uncopywritten stories and water them down. the old testament is full of stories they could plunder. they did a halfassed job with Prince of Egypt but havent really tried with much else.
if Disney came out with a bible story each Christmas every year for the next 20 years it would appease the so called religious right and it would open up the good book and so many of the great stories in there for people around the world.
then i would overhaul ABC. only thing worth watching on abc nowadays is madden doing monday night football.
first thing i would do is bring back american bandstand with dick clark, but it would be an hour and it would be on friday nights at 7pm and it would have huge stars and up n comers. then there would be music videos till midnight. and at midnight there would be the ABC Rock Concert.
and it would rock.
this week the Strokes, next week Marilyn Manson, the week after that Slayer.
Christina Aguilera had her live concert on the WB last night. nobody talked about it, nobody watched it, nobody cared. ABC shoulda shown that shit. and it shoulda been on at midnight.
according to jim? gone.
threat matrix and extreme makeover? GONE.
i would take conan or howard stern and i would give them the late night slot against leno and dave. i would destroy them.
oprah would get off her black ass and find her way into prime time. sure she’d still do the afternoon thing, but abc is blowing it by letting her coast. work that ho. have her introduce movies like they do on amc.
monday night baseball would come back on abc, and saturday afternoon baseball would debut. its the national pasttime, bitches. show some respect. and what could be finer than waking up with john miller on a saturday afternoon to give you the Game of the Week?
the Disney movie would be on Thursdays. quit it with trying to hoard those tapes. show them on abc too. in primetime against Friends. the people buy your stupid Dumbo tapes anyhow. many times over.
ok, my 15 minute break is over, but once again i dont want to run the studio, i just want to blog about it.
