Re: The Last 10 Days

Thanks, Lostfootage.

It looks like there are three routes. The dealership knew I was driving cross country so when they certified it they also added nitrous oxide inside the tires so I won't have...

Yeah, that DIFFERENT THREAD is in ONE ON ONE header. It's specifically for that type of conversation titled "Ideal LA Living Locations." So, sorry not sorry.

Re: The Last 10 Days

Thanks for the GREAT TIP on the "fill up." I've heard about instances like that. I was originally going the Chicago-->Iowa-->Utah-->Denver route but the hours to get get to the Grand Canyon were...

Re: The Last 10 Days

I hear you.

But I'm coming from a later in life move. My fully furnished home was 2,000+ square feet. I donated, sold, threw away ($800+ to do so), just to downsize. I cook gourmet meals and my...

Re: Recourse for non-WGA writer to enforce credit

This is unfortunately the truth of the matter.

What you should do, is get an agreement in place now, if you can. Unfortunately, that's not likely. But if this person is a "stand up guy/gal" maybe it...

Re: Mulan: Did Disney Foresee The Backlash?

Yeah, that was kinda my point. They will become two different markets. Not saying they will chose the US market first. The censorship required for the Chinese market won't fly with the US market. The...

Re: Mulan: Did Disney Foresee The Backlash?

That's not the problem. The problem is will enough western world countries stand in unison to boycott Disney's choice. Disney Studios is a business. They will reconsider their choices if they lose...

Mulan: Did Disney Foresee The Backlash?

I've been reading about the #boycottMulan and I'm curious what everyone thinks about whether Disney had any clue that this kind of backlash would occur? I mean, don't they pay someone big bucks to...

Re: Attachments to project

If we don't hear from your client in 30 days, we reserve the right to rescind the offer and move on to the next client.

Re: Theme and Opposing conflict

Re: Theme and Opposing conflict

Re: Made the Black List "Top List" - how can I use that?
