The Things That You See On TV, And Can't Avoid.

Besides Trump.
And you're right.
That's too easy.
I'll try not to do it again.

No, I'm referring to a commercial that is currently running on the MLB Premium Channel between innings.
It's for AT&T and its various plans.
It features Mark Wahlberg. 
And some of them also feature Angelica Huston dressed in an evening gown, with huge green dollar signs covering her front and back.
I don't care about Mark Wahlberg, but I for one, do not want to see Angelica Huston traipsing around
in an evening gown with huge green dollar signs covering her front and back.
And they show it between every half-inning.
I most often am exposed to it with the sound off, because I am usually watching more than one game at a time.
You can watch up to four at a time.
I often do.
There is nothing more or less offensive with the sound on.
It's much too much trouble to keep trying to turn off games.
I've tried, believe me, I've tried.
And I'm not giving up watching baseball.
I don't remember whether or not Angelica Huston is introduced by name.
It makes no difference.
I've also seen it on regular TV.
Does this one-time Oscar winner really need to do this for the money?
I'd hate to think so.
I'm sure the ad executive who came up with this thought it would a riot.
Trust me.  It's not.
It is just sad.
I mean, this is someone who is Cinematic and Theatrical Royalty.
John Huston's daughter, and Walter Huston's grand-daughter.
I have an AT&T phone.
I'm thinking of switching to Sprint.

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 macchus999@comcast.net
And now, we've got my reading of my "Laverne and Shirley Movie" screenplay on YouTube.

About Me

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 macchus999@aol.com. 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."
