First, here’s the new joblist, dated 7/5. Good luck out there.
Second, I’m not generally one to self-promote. I like to just do my thing, which I hope is both entertaining and helpful to my audience. On the other hand, I am one to hold a grudge.
My regular readers may remember that someone named Temp X called me an imitator last year, despite the fact that that statement made no damn sense whatsoever. I don’t begrudge temp diaries their dishy, entertainment news writing style, but please don’t lump me in that category.
To be honest, it was Temp Diaries’ slow posting of the UTA joblist that prompted me to start posting the list here.
Which brings me to an email I received from Temp X, yesterday. The subject line read, “6/28 joblist and more.” I posted this joblist last week. And, as I’ve noted before, a job that was posted a week ago has already been filled.
“But what was the ‘more’ Mr. X referred to?”
Self-promotion, that’s what. Jeff Sneider announced last week that Variety is putting together a list of Ten Assistants to Watch. Normally, this is not the sort of thing of I would care about, except…
I hold a grudge. I’m still annoyed that he accused me of ripping him off, even though I’d never heard of him.
On his twitter account (@TheInSneider (heh)), Sneider reported that ten people had already emailed him with a letter copy-and-pasted directly from the Temp Diaries website.
I’d like to beat this guy.
Please send an email to email@example.com, and tell him how much you love TAPA.
I’m not going to give you a template, like Temp X did. That seems tacky. But please, tell Sneider how I’ve helped you find jobs, or given you solid advice on set etiquette, or how just how funny you think I am.
Because really, I’m awesome, aren’t I?
