Why I want to earn my SAG card

I want a Screen Actors Guild card…

…not for the prestige.

…not for the pension and insurance benefits.

…not for access to all of the really great VO jobs.

…not for scale wages or residuals.

…not so that I can cast a ballot during strike votes.

…not even for the autographed 8″x10″ glossy of Alan Rosenberg.

No, I want to earn my SAG card just so that some day I can look into the baleful, unblinking eye of a television camera and say…

“I’m Michael Rankins… and I’m an actor.”

  1. Save your money on the SAG card. Not sure if the place will be around in a year or so the way they’re going now!

    BTW, I can find no way to subscribe to your blog. There is no subscribe button.

    Best always,

    Peter: I was, of course, being facetious about the SAG business. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if you’re right about the guild’s future.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll see whether I can figure out how to make a subscription offering here. I’m still trying to figure out WordPress. 🙂

    Peter: I solved (I think) the RSS feed challenge. If the new button doesn’t work for you, please let me know.
