Here's one example:

okay, then my question is, what was wrong with his movie? Whatever it was, he didn't change it enough to find a distributer who would produce it and put it in cinema's. I'm all for protecting your creative baby's integrity, but if you want to succeed, you need to produce something that is in demand. WHatever it was that he was producing, ovbiously wasn't in demand, which left him with two choices.

Stick with it, or change it to something that WAS wanted. He obviously never changed it into something that was wanted, otherwise he would have been able to sell it. I can't judge if that was the right decision mind you, as 'right' and 'profitable' aren't always the same thing

Again-yes, you have to get off your ass and do your best. Yes, you have to try to get to know as many people as possible. But none of that guarantees success in this  society.

Absolutely true, but if you fail at first you try again. You learn more, you make new friends and you keep trying. yes, failure grinds you down, and it keeps you down, only if you let it.

at least, that's what I believe. :)

Of course you keep trying. :)  Never said you shouldn't. But trying isn't enough. You either succeed-or you don't.

Politicians are like bananas; they hang together, they're all yellow, and there's not a straight one among them.

Don't dabte Steven on it; just sit back and laugh at how he might react if he knew how much he sounds like the real (as opposed to the left's usual mountain of lies about) Rush Limbaugh right now. :D :p

Oh, Steven seems like a cool person-I don't mind. ;)

Besides-I don't think we are really disagreeing-we're just coming from two different directions.

:cool:
