This is Rob Long, and on today’s Martini Shot I explain how the entertainment

reaching over and taking some — because fries are delicious — but then why don’t they have
any of their own?
The Long Game
This is Rob Long and on today’s Martini Shot, I get into an argument with a friend of mine, a fellow writer, at dinner, and teach the other two people there a valuable lesson about having dinner with two writers during a Writers Guild battle and that’s, don’t.
This is Rob Long and on today’s Martini Shot I download the DirecTV Now app to watch the HBO Go app and Showtime Anytime app, but what I needed to do was download the regular DirecTV app to watch the HBO Now app. I think. I’m still on hold with customer service.
This is Rob Long, and on today’s Martini Shot I go to a pitch meeting and at the end of it, I have no idea who is supposed to call whom. That used to be an agent’s job.
