Well! Well! I thought Spielberg was on Meg Whitman’s side and was behind Quibi? I wondered if Meg was playing a game when she posted that pic of Spielberg – who was not onboard yet. They should have let me perform my Bohemian Labyrinth Augur Ritual. My families barrel company has cursed Meg’s project. I got a dog in this race! My intentions are pure.

Many Hollywood heavyweights flocked to Apple’s Cupertino, Calif. headquarters to help reveal the tech giant’s revamped steaming service Apple TV+ on Monday — but one such legend was so polarizing he became a national trending topic on Twitter for simply showing his face.
Steven Spielberg was the first to appear in a dramatic short film about the power of creative content, cued up by Apple CEO Tim Cook and played at the top of a presentation of the many original series the company has ordered.
“You want my help with your opener?” rang out Spielberg’s voice over a black screen. He then art-directed the opening shot of the short, which featured testimony from the likes of J.J. Abrams, Octavia Spencer, Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon about what filmed content means to global audiences. Spielberg then took the main stage of the Steve Jobs Theater to discuss his Amblin Entertainment series “Amazing Stories,” ordered by Apple.
“Buzz surrounding Nelson joining Quibi began building on Tuesday when Janice Min, the former co-president and chief creative officer of The Hollywood Reporter who now oversees daily programming at Quibi, tweeted a picture of Steven Spielberg in the Quibi offices in which Nelson could be seen behind the Ready Player One helmer. Whitman retweeted the picture.
Landing Nelson is a coup for Quibi, given that she spent 22 years at Warner Bros. and left a significant footprint on the direction of the DC universe, which has expanded well beyond the core films like Justice League, Wonder Woman and the new Aquaman. Nelson’s decision to leave Warners was a blow considering that she developed a close relationship with Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling and spearheaded the management of what became one of the biggest franchises and brands in the first decade of the 21st century.
It’s an extraordinary sum for a start-up that hasn’t announced any shows or launched an app. However, Katzenberg and Whitman need a hefty war chest to make their offering stand out as companies such as Netflix, Apple and Amazon.com spend billions to woo established directors, writers, actors and producers.

I just found this in the parallel business world. William Broderick, the husband of Alice Stuttmeister, was the Vice President (a Director) of the California Barrel Company that was located in the Dogpatch, south of San Francisco, and Arcate in Humbolt County where the photograph of Melba and her grandfather is taken. The photo says it is her father, but, it is her grandfather, William Oltman Stuttmeister. I know this because according the Daryl Bulkley, William was very tall, and William Broderick, was short. That is how I remember him.
The President of Cal-Barrel, was Frederick Jacob Koster, who was a member of the Bohemian Club, as was Joaquin Miller, and George Stirling, seen in a traditional tent at the Grove Gathering. When Rosemary would show us the family photos, she would say this about our…
