In yesterday's mail, I received my first DVD from the West Coast.
My first screener from a Hollywood studio seeking my support for the movie in question.
They want my vote justifying that the film is award worthy.
The second week in September is when this usually starts.
From now on, the the deluge will begin.
Usually about half of them will actually BE award-worthy.
For you veterans of this website, this means the beginning of "Report Card" season.
And unless there is a major event that I wish to comment on, this blog will be taken up with
Report Cards .
For the uninitiated, all I want to know in a movie review is whether or not I would want to see it, backed up by good reasons, revealing no more than I have to about the plot..
I do it by asking the same questions for each movie and answering them.
If you see these movies and generally agree with me, then I should be your go-to reviewer.
If you don't, you should probably ignore this blog until awards season is over .
So you can't say you haven't been warned.
My books, "Show Runner" and it's sequel, "Show Runner Two", can be found at the Amazon Kindle Store.
Along with the newer ones, "The Man Is Dead", and "Report Cards".
They are all compilations of blog entries that have since been removed from the blog.
So this is the only way you can find them.
You can search by typing in my name, Cindy Williams, Laverne and Shirley, The Odd Couple, or Happy Days.
Check them out.
You don't need a Kindle machine to download them.
Just get the free app from Kindle, and they can be downloaded to an IPhone, IPad, or Blackberry.
The paperbacks, "Mark Rothman's Essays" and my new novel, "I'm Not Garbo" are not e-books.
But they are available for people without Kindle.
I have many readings and signings lined up for those, and the thing about Kindle is you can't sign one.
If you'd like one of the paperbacks, personally autographed, contact me at email@example.com
And now, we've got my reading of my "Laverne and Shirley Movie" screenplay on YouTube.

- Hi. I am, according to my Wikipedia entry,(which I did not create) a noted television writer, playwright, screenwriter, and occasional actor. You can Google me or go to the IMDB to get my credits, and you can come here to get my opinions on things, which I'll try to express eloquently. Hopefully I'll succeed. You can also e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Perhaps my biggest claim to fame is being responsible, for about six months in 1975, while Head Writer for the "Happy Days" TV series, for Americans saying to each other "Sit on it."
