HELP wanted

And just when you thought it was over... WHAT THE HELL CAUSED THAT?

murky said...

I am an anonymous outsider who was fwded your blog with the headline, ‘This jackass lost his job cause of his blog.’

I worked for Bardel 10 years ago and made much less than what was quoted on your blog. I was shocked at the working conditions. Everyone felt like they were being taken advantage of, yet collected their paycheck and always showed up on Monday. The fact that Bardel is in business 10 years later still shocks me.

If you want money and success, move to the United States and find strong business partners. I moved here 7 years ago and in 2003 I filed my biggest tax return with an income of $267,000. Right now, I am negotiating to sell my IP for $35,000 with a salary of $95,000. I am not even close to being the most talented Animator, but I aligned myself with smart business partners in a profitable environment.

Vancouver has neither or I would move back. People make the choice to stay at Bardel and Studio B for a variety of reasons that go beyond their job, such as family, or the privilege of living in Vancouver. All of which I respect.

I am looking at this post and I am confused. If you really believe in your convictions, you’d service the Gonzo Nation better by spending your evenings getting incorporated and finding investors. You have highly talented members and with a lot of hard work you could create a demo and start a studio. Then you could show the industry how it should treat its talent…

Then you could also learn what it’s like to be a boss. There is a huge schism between the business of being an employee and the business of well… being in business. You’ll quickly learn that employees can be highly unappreciative and unreliable. You will also learn that yes, you get higher rewards, but they come at a high risk of losing everything as well. Bosses don’t get to cross the street and work for another boss.

If neither of those options are for you, then go be a surfer. There is definitely a time to tell anyone in any industry to ‘go fuck themselves.’ But to continue making inflammatory posts under the guise of humor or a “revolution” is disturbing. I’m genuinely concerned that you could have a personality disorder and therapy with medication would help you greatly.

Now I will go back to quietly trolling

Yo Murky,

Good post, I was wondering if we could talk off this blog. I would like to hear more about what steps you took to change your career plan. My email is onemanarmy_187@hotmail.com

hobo divine said...

why y'all hate?

The Tracker said...

Johnny Gonzo is just as bad as the studio heads he hates.. when he cant keep quite any longer its all cool but when someone discents with his opinion he removes there postings. maybe there IS a space for u with a big oak desk johnny, maybe you can make it after all!

thisll be removed to im sure.

Johnny Gonzo said...

taking points from people that have constructive things to say is great, but listening to a spiteful person with nothing to say but negative at me, yup i have no problems removing your posts. CBC is calling they're glad they ditched the tracker.

The Tracker said...

sorry dood, thot ur help wanted sign was the model to base comments on.

The Tracker said...

ok hears something constructive.. i challange u to make a 20 second thing and post it on utube by next weekend. put ur money where ur mouth is and the angry words behind us

Johnny Gonzo said...

that sign is called satire.

all i can think is that obviously there is no tracking the tracker, cause if there was they would see that the trackers wages go to monitoring my blog. it's your salary that inflates production costs. you spend alot of time on here.

The Tracker said...

kewl does that mean u wont except the challange? obviously u wont except the part about putting angry words behind u but what about the 20 seconds?

Johnny Gonzo said...

observations is all, just because they make you angry does not make the words angry.

and what are yoou going to do for this supposed challenge?

The Tracker said...

didnt say i wanted a compitition man, just said put ur money wear ur mouth is otherwise ur all talk. remember the rest of us are to busy with nine to five to do creative stuff so i thot u'd want to show the way. if ur not man enough tho that's kewl.

i like how i am spitefull and u r observant by the way. nice justafication

The Tracker said...

hey dude just wanted to say that 3 of us use this login (an 2 are more bitter than the 3rd ;). think what were all sayin is that u have a rep for flying off at the mouth and not followin up. hard for people to listen to u if your words look hollow. good luck an hope u can come thru with somethin. u prolly know who we are now, so sorry guys. u were startin to get harsh tho

THE O.M.A. GENERAL said...

If I guess right will you tell us your name The 3 Amigos, RON CROWN is probably one, and maybe some other MONKEY Paw guys. If I am wrong then so be it. If you respond back and let your name be heard maybe we can come to an understanding! Lets cut the shit!

Plus 20 seconds in a weekend isn't that hard, if you like squeezing out TURDS. Marv Newland told me once that you get 3 choices when deciding how a project will play out.

1. SPEED
2. BIG MONEY
3. QUALITY

Now pick 2, seems like most studios and the BIG industry is all about SPEED and BIG MONEY, the CANADIAMERICAN DREAM! So maybe if we all slowed down a bit things wouldn't be so painful to work on!

I think that is the true goal of the NATION!

Lemme know if it is any MonkeyPaw dudes, Dallas... I work here and it's a small crew.

THE O.M.A. GENERAL said...

Sorry to Pony and the rest of the talent at the Paw! I reacted with out thinking about my friends I might have there. Still would like the mystrery men to fess up or did I nail that one with my guess?

Kevy Metal said...

Hey Pony!

Dragonfooooorrrrrrrccccceeeeee!!!

THE O.M.A. GENERAL said...

Yo, just got off the phone with Ron Crown. He wanted to say that he has no interest in this blog, and reassured me that he was not posting on this site, Ron also said if he were to comment on this blog he would use his real name. My apologies for the speculation and I am glad that Ron was man enough to come and confront me. Too bad that can't be said for a lot of people in the industry!

The Tracker has become nearly as infamous as this blog.

I wonder if it will end up being like a Scooby Doo episode, and when the mask is pulled off, it'll be revealed that the Tracker was none other than Old Man Jenkins, the caretaker of Haunted Hills Manor... That would be neat.

Crotch where did you steal that baby in your picture. Im pretty sure that is illegal, and why is your name Kevy metal and not Crotch. Whats the deal?
