Who We Are

Burt Prelutsky

Burt Prelutsky, a very nice person once you get to know him, has been a humor columnist for the L.A. Times and a movie critic for Los Angeles magazine. As a freelancer, he has written for the New York Times, TV Guide, Modern Maturity, Emmy, Holiday, American Film, and Sports Illustrated. He is the author of “Conservatives Are From Mars, Liberals are from San Francisco.”

For television, he has written for Dragnet, McMillan & Wife, MASH, Mary Tyler Moore, Rhoda, Bob Newhart, Family Ties, Dr. Quinn and Diagnosis Murder. In addition, he has written a batch of terrific TV movies. Talk about being well-rounded, he plays tennis and poker… and rarely cheats at either.

He lives in the San Fernando Valley, where he takes his marching orders from a wife named Yvonne and a dog named Duke. His personal web site is www.burtprelutsky.com

Jim Bass

Although sometimes cranky when contradicted, Jim Bass does not bite, at least not hard enough to leave marks. His checkered career includes stints as a newspaper reporter (brief), owner of a public relations agency (not brief enough), advertising copywriter and multimedia producer.

Today, he focuses mostly on photography. He has started two web businesses, and created dozens of websites since getting into the business in 1994. He has three children, one marriage, one mortgage, two dogs, two cars and infinite opinions.

A reformed liberal who confesses to voting for Jimmy Carter (cue primal scream), he defines himself as a “secular christian” and a “republitarian” who believes in free markets and small government. He lives in Ventura County, California and considers himself lucky to be an American. And even more lucky to realize how lucky he is. His website is www.bassimages.com.
