Futurama - "The Silence of the Clamps" WGA Award nominationHello again. Surprise again. I'm here to let you know that our good friend Eric Rogers (aka @Kitchelfilms) has been nominated for a Writers Guild of America Award (West) for the Futurama episode "The Silence of the Clamps" that he wrote for the last season that aired this past 2011 on Comedy Central.

It is always great to see the series being nominated, and I'm sure Eric is trilled to know his hard work led to this awesome news of being nominated.

Here you go the other nominees in the Animation Category for this 2012:

  • "Bart Stops to Smell the Roosevelts" (The Simpsons), Written by Tim Long; Fox
  • "The Blue and the Gray" (The Simpsons), Written by Rob LaZebnik; Fox
  • "Donnie Fatso" (The Simpsons), Written by Chris Cluess; Fox
  • "Homer the Father" (The Simpsons), Written by Joel H. Cohen; Fox
  • "Moonstruck" (Ben 10: Ultimate Alien), Written by Len Uhley; Cartoon Network
  • "The Silence of the Clamps" (Futurama), Written by Eric Rogers; Comedy Central

As usual, a lot of Simpsons nominations this year, but Futurama already won this category in 2011 with the amazing episode of Ken Keeler, "The Prisoner of Benda"

Good luck to Eric Rogers, and if he doesn't win, the WGA will get some clamping with... The Clamps!

Hi. Surprise. Well, not many know what happened to me since December, 2011. I had an anterior cruciate ligament injury and a tear of the external meniscus in my right knee.
(links to Wikipedia offline on January 18th, 2012 due to SOPA/PIPA protest)

Since I usually update this site, The Futurama Point, in my free time after work, I've been unable to do it, since I'm using that time for my rehabilitation, that lasts a very long one.. about 6 months. Now, I will update the site sooner, but all this time I had very hard moments that I need you to understand.

Speaking of the SOPA/PIPA, I might join the strike tomorrow.. not that this site is crucial to the Internet, and to be honest, I have not updated it since last year, but I think this protest should be considered real so all the world can see what will happen if we start blocking the Internet, because this (SOPA/PIPA ideas) are going to affect all of us in some way if governments around the world try to approve this kind of crazy laws in order to help a bunch of people, that to be honest, have already LOTS of money... don't matter how you se it... it is always about money.
