    So I was 2nd AD on a short film back around March, and they're starting to promote it now on fb. Only thing is I’m noticing that while the entire cast and crew is being tagged in these posts, including extras and even the grips and such, I’m consistently not being included in these posts. I’m friends with these people on fb (obviously, as I’m able to see their posts), and as far as I'm aware, there was no bad blood between myself or anyone else on set, so I'm pretty confused and frustrated here now. If it was only one time I was left out, that’d be one thing, but it’s been multiple times with multiple people now. Debating whether it’s worth it to speak up about it, to see what’s going on, or if it's even worth bringing up at all, or if I should just drop it? I dunno, anyone have any thoughts? Just feels like a real awkward position to be placed in, and can’t see how I can address it in any way that doesn’t make me come off badly. :\
    Dude, I had the same problem with a movie, only it was with the IMDb page. I didn't appear in it. I wrote the director and producer and it turned out it was an innocent oversight, so, my advice is, do it.

    I'm happy to report that I'm going on a long weekend to New Orleans with my dad, brother and a family friend in October. I've never been and always wanted to go. I love good food and local history/culture, so if anyone has been and has some suggestions about places to eat/go, I'm all ears. I'm not really into jazz all that much (tho I do like blues), but I hope to see a cool cemetery or two, take some photos of churches and such.

    Maybe it's because I live in Canada, where "arctic sovereignty" has been a major political issue for the last decade or so, but I don't think it's crazy to want to purchase Greenland. As the polar ice caps melt, the natural resources underneath them are going to become extractable and new shipping lanes are going to open up. If anything, this is probably the most forward-thinking policy proposal Trump has made.

    This is remarkably generous of you.

    I'm not saying Trump managed it well. I'm just saying the idea didn't come out of nowhere.

    Same with his quote today that he's going to look at removing automatic US citizenship for babies born in the US. That's been a pet dream of some Republicans for a long while. They finally have an idiot willing to entertain it.

    Sure. But your interpretation makes too much sense for a guy who's probably suffering from dementia.

    During this same week, he talked about being the "chosen one" and about how the Israelis love him so much they want to make him king, then added in some really weird shit about how Jewish voters in the U.S. are "disloyal."

    PS: Canada? WTF? Why did I think you were living in Korea all this time?

    These days, is there really even a difference between Canada and Korea?
