Youtube beats Hollywood

This month’s Vanity Fair caught my eye at the local salon. Michael Wolff’s piece called “The Plot Sickens” is a classic riff on the demise of two channels; movies and television.

Here is how he puts it in his conclusion:

“The epochal point is that Hollywood, which has been the center of the culture, the coolest place, the ruler of the Zeitgeist, is out of it. It’s on the industrial sidelines. It’s just a bunch of crabby managers and a sullen workforce in a dysfunctional relationship in a declining industry, quarreling over an ever smaller piece of the pie.”

You really have to read the whole thing. Do you think it makes a point?
