Did you write this all by yourself or did your caretaker help you?
I wish. My caretaker has been slacking off as of late. I want my raw hamburger and then to be hosed down as we agreed.
You deserve fresh fish, you jolly cute thing.

Change is a comin...

In the wake of Alec Baldwin accidentally fatally shooting cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of “Rust,” Johnson told Variety that he will no longer use real guns in any of his productions.

Has anyone seen Old Henry?

I liked it.

I wonder if Alec has seen it yet, LOL.

What about The Survivalist? Has Alec seen it? He should, he can learn from it.

He pointed the gun at someone, pulled the trigger
that is still an issue. they'll need expert witnesses to determine just how deep the rule is in Hollywood about pointing guns at the camera rather than at people; kind of hard to believe that's always feasible but it does seem to be the rule.

The rules are to not shoot people with a loaded gun. Be smart.

question:

Automobiles are dangerous and can kill people.

Suppose somebody composes an angry post on a message board while driving and gets into an accident and kills somebody.

How bad is that compared to somebody who is not a gun expert, and who went with the flow in a situation where extant protocols have pretty much worked over the years, and even with 'plinking' on the side, there have been no deaths?

I could likewise ask, what is wrong with you? You have a lot of self-righteous arrogance regarding gun handling, but I do believe that you really are as careful as you say, and that you really do take it very seriously, and that you really do know guns very well -- far better than I do.

At the same time, you've noted in the past that you've composed posts while driving, hence the grammatical errors.

Prior to the fact, why should Alec have taken any more safety precautions when he picks up a gun as an actor and non-specialist than you take when you get in the car with a phone as a driver?

The takeaway is that you should either be a little more sympathetic to the position Alec is in, or you should be far harder on yourself for your driving practices.

Insane.

That is not the takeaway. Goddamn what lunatic BS.
