Rejection, while never fun, is part of the process.

You can battle it, suppress it, and attempt to sue it out of existence, or you can embrace it and all of the good that it can do for you. The latter gains you new fans and allows your customers to see you as a company (or individual) with a sense of humor who knows a good thing when they see it.

Comment on Two (million) can play at that game! by astronomius http://www.art-machine.org/two-million-can-play-at-that-game/comment-page-1/#comment-1328 astronomius Tue, 07 Jul 2009 18:26:56 +0000 http://www.art-machine.org/?p=1200#comment-1328 why not publish industry rumors? we do it all the time here in The States, lol. what high rollers take seriously are signed contracts, everything else is just buzz. industry buzz is good, though, because it helps generate and gauge commercial interest. i once met Frank Miller years ago at a book signing; he's a really sharp guy, like many writers are, but he's easy to get along with and Hollywood won't get rid of him for this reason. and who doesn't like Emma Watson? the BBC certainly does. the question is, does Emma want to work on Doctor Who? if she did, it would be a scheduling issue. she has a personal life, models, wants to go to university... even if she was a guest on the show, it would be fantastic. if Emma appeared on Dr. Who, i think she should look and act very different and distinct from everything else she's done, and memorably: an alien, a bad guy, a magistrate, an incarnated demon, another space-time traveler... whatever. the thing about playing the Doctor's companion is the commitment to the role, because whomever is going to get cast (stuck?) for a few years. why not publish industry rumors? we do it all the time here in The States, lol. what high rollers take seriously are signed contracts, everything else is just buzz. industry buzz is good, though, because it helps generate and gauge commercial interest.

Comment on Rakhi Sawant ftw by Lawrence Hammond http://www.art-machine.org/rakhi-sawant-ftw/comment-page-1/#comment-1327 Lawrence Hammond Tue, 07 Jul 2009 01:03:10 +0000 http://www.art-machine.org/?p=1174#comment-1327 I agree that a woman president, not much different than the Legislative Assembly in Iceland is now composed largely of, will begin us on a trek of restoring all which has pushed us down. There's also merit in Ms. Gayle Ross in such a role. She's articulate, a humanitarian in spite of her people's oppression, very hard working and the end line of a legacy of very fine leaders. She's also very much a woman, tall and lovely and seductive as she weaves her tales unadulterated by the constrictions of Western Moral Culture. Her Beaded Beltway narrative includes erotic situations and personal experiences, long the envy of myself towards her husband back at her home. I'd love to spend a night or two with her.

Comment on The Myth of Perpetual Copyright by primecog http://www.art-machine.org/the-myth-of-perpetual-copyright/comment-page-1/#comment-1303 primecog Thu, 11 Jun 2009 02:01:09 +0000 http://www.art-machine.org/?p=1239#comment-1303 I've been a victim of that policy, too, Alex. In fact, I had a store refuse to sell me the photos even when I had written permission to duplicate them. It was one of those "scan your photo" kiosks, and I had waited an hour to get some quick prints of my headshots. They took one look at them when I went to pay, and without asking or waiting for an explanation, they creased them, tore them, and threw them into the garbage. *Then* they said, "Sorry, we can't sell you those." And I second Bound By Law. It's focused primarily on documentary work, but it's got some great general material that everybody should know. I’ve been a victim of that policy, too, Alex.

This myth about copyright is particularly nefarious when companies try to bully people who don't know better. Walgreen's, for example, likes to pretend that people don't have the right to make copies of photos that those people had a studio make, when in fact, copyright clearly states (unless a contract is written that makes it otherwise) that works-for-hire belong to the person who commissions them, not the person who carries out the commission.
