I'm not bashing, I'm just ribbing.

But if you could put a squeeze on toolverine's & jza's "cncoyle is fat" jokes, I'd appreciate it. They posted some things that made me cry the other day.

(Of course, my tears are made out of gravy, so they're delicious.)

I'm not bashing him. His stance on union labor is WELL known on the internetz. Saying he's hardcore isn't an insult. And there is a very real chance I'll see him in the next few days and have a beer with him.

LOL, after the Guggenheim incident, I don't think the adjective 'hardcore' would even be called to question.

Actors are acting like primadonnas (shocking, isn't it?). Part of their problem is they're trying to one-up another actor's union who already came to a settlement a while ago. :roll:

I don't know for sure but I'm guessing yes. I met him and most of the Best Shots guys last year at the con.

I think the fact that a lot of the top actors like Tom Hanks and George Clooney are against a strike will be a good thing. It's one thing when the WGA goes on strike and some minor guys people haven't heard of call it BS and a waste of time, but when you have household names telling people that the strike is wrong, despite being members of the union on strike, well I think that undermines you a bit more and will lead to a quicker resolution. Also a lot of folks lost money during the last strike and aren't keen to go through another, and that is both the networks that lost shows and the actors, writers, and behind the scenes folks that produce the shows. I think that if the strike occurs there will be lots of pressure from all sides to end it quickly.

I know people in the SAG, and those who work behind the scenes (comes with living in L.A.). No one is looking forward to a strike. They're still not recovered from the last one. They simply can't afford another work stoppage.

I think the only people not accepting that as a reality are the hardcore pro-union folks that don't accept reality and the top guys for SAG, unfortunately that second group is in charge of the negotiations.
