"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

Hey.....have you heard? Sag and Aftra want to merge!

I have a huuuuuge ole article I wrote that I'm not sure I'm going to post because I'm still undecided on the matter. I'm leaning one way one day, and then leaning another the next day and I swear I'm going to fall down soon if I don't fix my balance up right quick!

In the meantime, want to share your views and how you're going to vote? Or how you would if you were in a union?

Here's a Pro Merger opinion from Vic Chao.

And here's an Anti-Merger opinion from Gil Christner

If you feel strongly one way or another, please be kind in your comments on this blog and the ones I linked to above. I would love to know your thoughts.


  1. I still have yet to make up my mind either! So many pro's and cons, dammit.

    I'm off to read the articles you linked to.

  2. Being a New Zealand actress, I have nothing to do with either AFTRA or SAG but I do find a bit disconcerting that IMDb has kept pushing for the merger at least on Facebook. I get messages from them almost every day saying, 'Actors on show XYZ are voting "Yes".' Keeping my fingers crossed for you guys that whatever eventuates will be truly best for you! xx


Play nice.
