1) FOX: STOP PREEMPTING MY SUNDAY NIGHT "ANIMATION DOMINATION" LINEUP EVERY DAMN TIME A NEW SERIES COMES OUT. I will make voodoo dolls of all of you and slowly roast your genitals over a fire. I will put a curse upon you so everything you touch turns to marmalade. I WANT MY SIMPSONS, FAMILY GUY, & AMERICAN DAD (& to a lesser extent, King of the Hill) SO STOP IT!
2) Dear Big Finish Productions: I listened to your latest Doctor Who audio adventure, Renaissance of the Daleks. The story was very good and original (I could have done without the "Evil American Military" shtick, but it's your story, your politics are your own. If you can't be more creative than that, c'est la vie.) But what really drives me up the wall for all of your Doctor Who audio adventures is your horrible, horrible, American accents. I don't think ANY American Generals in all of history have sounded like an over-the-top hybrid of John Wayne & Gen. Buck Turgidson from Dr. Strangelove, but you seem to think they all do. Watch the news sometime, and you'll see that they actually sound like (gasp) human beings. The same thing goes for the character Alice: Actress Regina Regan is to be commended for her ability to mash every stereotypical American dialect- from Mid-western to Brooklyn to Texan to Valley Girl- all into one, with a bit of Ethel Merman thrown in besides. For God's sake, if you want an American voice that sounds like a human being, call me. Come to think of it, since you can't seem to write less hackneyed, stereotypical lines for American officers than "I'm a major & you'll respect my rank by God- I go by the book!" -give me a call & I'll do some writing for you too.
