: : What did you have for lunch, Sheepie?
: : Sounds to me like JJ is backing Charles' decision.
: Yeah, but saying all we do is grumble makes me want to freak out. To all the people who got their asses kicked around for trying help it seems pretty insulting.
: : As for writing off animators, unless you're one of us, that's pretty easy to do. As you and I have discussed. We're an ornery bunch. Don't be surprised when people want to run the other way.
: Any group is ornery (great word) when they have been stepped all over. It seems to me the place to start getting respect is from each other first. How can we expect anyone else to care if we are so self depreciating. Yeah, there are people who just whine but that isn't the case for the majority. Focused anger is good. It's not like there is no reason. Got to give Snakebite back his testosterone pills.
I hear ya ... hard to put on a smiley face with a steel-toed boot up your ass.
But if we are going to affect a meaningful change, a smiley face may be a necessary ingredient. It's for darned sure the anger we feel won't get us anywhere ... unless we focus it, as you suggest, on doing something positive.
