And the debate opens up.
Hey Mr. "Gonzo".
After knowing you for so long I was a bit surprised to see such bitter venom in your blog and to see another example of a weak person hiding behind their shiny little keys and stirring it up. I would have given you more credit than that. Too bad that you don't have the balls to do that stuff in person.
You should take your own advice and grow a spine.
I would also like to comment on your earlier blog, "A great opportunity to get ripped off"
To answer the question that you posed to the world," Do you know of any creator that actually got a show at Studio B"?
Aside from the fact that I could care less about what you think I want to point out to you that many people here have been a part of the creation of our shows.
The Dan vs. contest is not a call for creating the show. It's to find a cool design and pay for it, even if it's on a cocktail napkin. That is the way we always do it here and if your head wasn't so far up your own ass you would be aware of that.
More importantly Jordan, most of the shows are created by "artists" and in fact are shows that my partner and I have created.
The differnce is that us "artists" had the balls to put our money where our mouth was and created a studio that employs a lot of great people and makes a lot of great shows. We didn't sit back and gripe about the fact that the world owed us a living.
I would have thought that by now you would have realized that no one just hands you 8 million dollars to go create and produce a series just because you are SO creative.
I guess that's why you're still a bum.
Oh and by the way, regarding your little co-ordinator rant, that was a little close to home, don't you think?
Have you never heard the phrase "Don't Shit Where You Eat?
Stick your head back up your own ass and breathe deep Gonzo. The real joke of your blog is that it's all a bullshit facade anyway but you don't have it goin' on enough for anybody to give a crap.
Nice knowin' ya.

I have gone on rants and now someone who has taken particular offense my opinion, has stepped up, mister "B". Now i could respond with personal attacks about my your ass and my bum and various things being inserted....i won't. Instead i will review some of the past.
I am extremely grateful for all of the opprutunities that every studio in town that has let me learn and grow under their systems have afoorded me. These systems started in a different time....when no one had a cell phone, the internet was non existant, and animation required an army of people to do it. This was only a decade ago. I have had the chance to learn about the net, mobiles and flash, and have seen that 8million dollars for a show is ridiculous. I'm not sure that spouting about how much money that goes through that system is a good idea ,especially when most of the artists that sit at the desks making the funny cartoons don't actually get anything propotional to what they should. So if there are 3 shows, that sounds like alot of money to me, and being an artist i can't add...but i am sure some out there can figure it out.
My first job.... great pay, an intense amount of learning, and awesome co-workers. I progressed through this system and learned as much as possible. After about 2 years i realized the system was not going to work for me. alot of political jockeying to get the dwindling wages and jobs. Then technology took over....brought all the jobs back, but keep the wages plummeting. I would have thought that a product that is supposed to make an animators life more effecient would help them be make more of that elusive 8 million. nope, the boys saw it as more room for profit, and skimmed it and called it a lower budget. You cannot use an overseas production model for show that is animaetd in house, break down the walls and communicate your staff. THEY are talented but you stuff them into a peghole that limits them to uninspired drivel that we call series work.
time to go back to being a bum with no spine.....by the way if anyone has listened to me in person the last six months they know that i say everything i write about OUT LOUD..over and over and over and over tile it get me fired, it's up to you to listen or not.
