About us...
Dr. Deems D. Morrione is a writer and scholar of American popular culture (sometimes he even gets paid for it).  His ambition is to write a Generation X manifesto, but he can't seem to muster the interest to do it.  Robert K. Morrione is a former studio bureaucrat, actor, and writer.  His favorite part about working at a movie studio was that it put him in such close proximity to the Hollywood Glitterati that he could see the very rough edges (particularly the plastic surgery scars). Combined, they are the List Watchers--a dynamic duo not so much interested in fighting crime as they are in chronicling it as the drama unfolds.
