So, guess what showed up in the mail yesterday. Yup my shiny new membership card. Bask in its glowing glory.
And that's not all that was in the envelope either. There was also a nice letter telling me that they wanted the rest of their buttload of money for the initiation fee and here's a handy worksheet where you can report your earnings for the 3rd and 4th quarter so we can send you a bill for your dues. Ain't Guild membership grand?
The better news on that front is that I earned enough on that movie that I'll qualify for the Health Plan which will take effect in January. I'll hold off on getting sick until then.
Also, Michael Taylor stopped in and commented on the previous post:
"The mystery of seemingly random referrals remains an ongoing conundrum. For a while there, I got a small blizzard of hits from a web site called "Modern Drunkard Magazine" -- apparently because my own blog title contains the word "juicer."
He's got a blog called Blood, Sweat, and Tedium: Confessions of a Hollywood Juicer
There's a couple of things that strike me here.
1. I like having new readers and commenters. That's why I write here.
2. I've certainly heard of electricians on sets being referred to as "Juicers", but I think it's more of a West Coast thing.
3. There's a "Modern Drunkard Magazine" ? Holy shit! This I had to see.
So, off I went to have a look. I think most of you will enjoy this entry called "Drunks in Space". Give it a look.
Oh, and what am I forgetting?
Go Red Sox!
Oh, and one more thing I forgot about. One of you is getting a surprise. I'm not saying who and I'm not say what. It should show up in about a week and I suspect we'll all hear about it when it gets there. Feel free to speculate.
