Fuck. I knew something about the fights between WGA and Nick. During the cancellation, Jamie and I tracked down a bit of the information detailing the struggles of the writers on Zim, Spongebob, Oddparents and a couple of other shows to gain union representation, and the suspectedly illegal actions Nick took in the matter. But I didn't know any of the hard facts. This is just...FUCK! Makes you proud to be human, doesn't it? :P Doesn't raise my opinion of Bush's administration any, either, a fact which would bring down a load of crap if I metioned it in 'polite company' now. I love Paul, but I was a bit disturbed by the fact that he turned off the Blockbuster trailer today when he saw that Dixie Chicks were on it. I don't know, I guess he's entitled to express his opinion in that manner. Anyway, as for details on the WGA thing, I found this on J. Random Lurker's journal (after finding it through their AMAZING fics O_o).

Why, thanks ;)

Found that on one of the random Nick boards, and I REALLY don't know who to attribute those statements to (I'm sure it's NOT Jhonen though...)

And welcome to my friends list ;)

I believe the comments are from Micah Wright (hope I got the name right). From what I've heard, they're to be taken with a grain of salt because he was pretty bitter about Nickelodeon not making "Constant Payne". You might want to check with some of IZ staffers to see how large a part the WGA thing played in IZ's demise. I think it's a much smaller role than Wright makes it out to be.

Regarding Lacey's comment, I truly doubt that. I didn't even know the WGA existed until after Zim was cancelled and you and I talked to Steve about it. Just because someone is bitter about their show doesn't mean they're going to go around making up lies. It seemed pretty damn specific, and some of the things he said about them doing (i.e. taking down boards announcing the WGA, demanding people who signed up for it come forward) sounds familiar to me.

If you go to the WGA site, you can see the sort of stuff Nick was doing mentioned. In fact, I had set up an appointment to talk with someone from WGA.. I never got around to doing the interview but when I talked to the woman who was going to set it up and forward me to someone in a more knowlegeable department, she mentioned a few of Nick's wrongdoings and made it a point to tell me that the interaction between the WGA and some of the staff of Invader Zim was a source of some of the problems they had.

Oh, yeah. And J. Random Lurker rawks my world.
