well,i took a lot of "losers" into my 'workshop" and they are now successful designers who have really great careers - and some of them are on this site and they know what losers they were when they met me. discarding people like they were some sort of dirty sock is pretty low, even if they're losers. i never discarded losers, i discarded assholes.
i still bullshit. you austin guys all seem so weenie and thinskinned about business stuff. boy, i could tell you some things about some folks i KNOW you DEEPLY admire and idolize that would just freak you.
bottom line - get over that petty stuff. it's better to promote the whole community. otherwise it make you guys look little and pissy. lord knows, i'd never hire you guys if i heard that story. if you guys treat him like that, how on earth would i be treated?
copmuter time? jeezuz!
boy, if i had a nickel for evey twerp like jason that waltzed through my life, i'd be a rich man. so what?
however, big deal. so what if the credits get all messed up. boy, i could tell YOU some stories about some of YOUR idols, dude! i could turn your hair white.
anyway, jason DOES NOT deserve the bad rap he's gotten from you austin guys. especially for the trivial wrong he's commited. he's an amazing designer, and so are you guys. if he shot your dog or something, i'd understand, but this "cold war" over jason austin is bullshit.
