SMNetwork Archives / Multitaskers are "Lousy at Everything"
« on: Aug 31, 2009, 11:02 am »
[Moderators -- not sure what forum this belongs in.]

For those of you who think you can take blocking, text, and check your email at the same time...please take note of this recent study, as described in the NY Times.

“Multitaskers were just lousy at turns out that high multitaskers are suckers for irrelevancy...[they] think they’re great at what they do; and they’ve convinced everybody else they’re good at it, too.”

Tools of the Trade / Source "Blood Knife"?

Anyone have a source for a really good "Sweeny Todd" style blood knife prop?  (Ya know, a prop knife that's gimmicked.)

(I'm less concerned with cost than with being in stock).

Thanks in advance!

For example, Non-AEA SM's who function as Production Assistants/Apprentices/Interns to Stage Managers in AEA theatres, and then put "Stage Manager" on their resumes to represent this work.

Completely unacceptable IMHO (unlesss perhaps if ASM billing had been negotiated due to the person's contribution to the production.)

Resume padding is foolish too -- this just came up in a production meeting in regards to a tenor, but applies equally to non-performers.  This business too small to escape detection for long -- almost every resume I receive has at least one name on it (or a venue/producer to easily leads to a name) that is at least a casual aquaintance.

(Edit: reuniting Scott's response with Ruth's original post, which relocated from the green room to Employment thread.  ~nmno)
