I just emailed this to their show

Dear Bill and Ben

Thought you may be interested in a story I
have just read about MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) along
with a handful of former Hollywood Executives and their plans to 'Save
(Film) Story telling'….

Although I haven't heard Mark use his infamous phrase for a few
weeks now, I'm sure that the "Death of Narrative Cinema" and all that
that entails is never far from his mind!

This is a quote from the article:
"I even saw a plasma screen above a urinal," said Peter Guber,
the longtime film producer and former chairman of Sony Pictures
Entertainment who contends that traditional narrative — the kind with
unexpected twists and satisfying conclusions — has been drowned out by
noise and visual clutter.
