Video: Harlan Ellison on Getting Paid as a Writer

Thanks to Kate at FishbowlLA for finding this video, but OH MY GOD—IT’S INCREDIBLE.  A quick bit of backstory… yesterday, posted a recently-written—and fairly pissed off—response to the WGA-AMPTP deal by sci-fi guru Harlan Ellison.  I don’t necessarily agree with him, but his passion is AWESOME.  Even more awesome is this video from Dreams With Sharp Teeth, a documentary about Ellison himself… maybe you’ve seen this… and granted, it’s a little late now, considering the strike is over and the deal’s done—but if this doesn’t make you stand up and go, “Yeah, fight the man!”… well, I don’t know what will.  It also makes me want to go read more Harlan Ellison.
