ENTERTAINMENT DROPPINGS: Blast From The Past Hollywood Email Flamewar

Now during the breathing space between the Hollywood writers strike being officially over and those durn pesky actors possibly wanting their own piece of the pie too, it gives us an opportunity to revisit a classic: the email bitchfest (courtesy of Pelzmantel) between Mark Brazill, creator of such comedy classics as That '70s Show and That '80s Show duking it out with newly-annointed golden boy Judd Apatow over a sketch that appeared on the mostly unwatched but mostly much-lauded (with pretty good reason) Ben Stiller Show. It's got everything you could want from an email war between professional writers: insults, bad grammar, even a "9/11-changed-everything" reference!

Never underestimate the childishness of adult males in competition. I forwarded this exchange to my film class students to remind them of what's behind the slick films released -- thousands of exchanges like this one!
