SIX MONTHS OLD

Next week, My Damn Channel turns six months old. I’m still awake in the middle of every night feeding two more babies…our twins just passed three months.

THE NIGHT FEED blog was born on the night of the writers’ strike to add more interaction with the humans behind My Damn Channel. We’re about to add a slew of interactive features to all of the channels in two weeks. We’re continuing to build this machine to last.

We dreamed up the business to get free of as much old thinking as possible about how media is supposed to behave. My Damn Channel has patron saints like John Lydon, still young enough to get in the ring with anyone – still too honest to put up with even a hint of corporate crap.

The artists and producers of our 5 channels and everyone who works to put our original videos out every day have touched over 5 million people in the past 5 months.

Mark Wednesday, February 6th as the date to check the channels and the blog. The new look will debut. Then the following week of Feb 11 — 3 new channels join the line-up.

Fresh off last night’s Obama and Hillary heavyweight bout another My Damn Channel Silent Debate. In a selfless act of journalistic fairness, Harry Shearer steps aside to let Brit Hume from Fox moderate…and have a little lunch:
