If you can help, that would be great! ChipIn does take a bit off the top, so it may take me a while to get the amount I need. Any little bit helps. Everyone who contributes $50 or more will get their name on my album!
I honestly don't think I'll raise that much.....especially by October, but I thought it was worth a try to see if fans could help. If not, I understand! I'll just have to wait! :)

Again if anyone has time and can listen to Drifting to get my plays up that would be AWESOME!! And THANK YOU to everyone listening to the other's!
Now, I know this one is depressing...it's supposed to be!! So don't get depressed listening!! Eek!! (That's a stab at my cuz who had to switch songs on her mySpace because it was depressing her!) :)
Anywho - Here's the link:
You read - You decide!!
Here's a bit for what he said on the website in reference to certain sections of the contract:
If you It is the “It’s a Laugh You’ll notice the use of intimidation in the letter to persuade me to NOT reveal the contracts content to you. Sorry, guys, it ain’t gonna work on the Ol’ Dog.
don’t believe AFTRA’s current leadership doesn’t want you see these
contracts, let me exhibit a letter and contract that AFTRA sent me
after considerable pressure on my part.
Productions, Inc.” agreement between Disney and AFTRA leadership. As,
you read it, remember it sacrifices actors livelihood to a company that
reported annual revenue of THIRTY FIVE BILLION DOLLARS--a
significant amount that Disney credited, in the press, to such highly
successful AFTRA cable shows like Hannah Montana and others.
It is the “It’s a Laugh
You’ll notice the use of intimidation in the letter to persuade me to NOT reveal the contracts content to you. Sorry, guys, it ain’t gonna work on the Ol’ Dog.
Now let’s look at that AFTRA contract that they don’t want you to see, for good reason.
You’ll notice beyond the residual giveaway in Section 4. (Exhibition Period) the particular Egregious Section 8.
(Pre-Payment of Residuals) that allows the good-hearted folks and
Disney to apply, with no limitations, original compensation against any
residuals that actors, mostly kids, may receive.
(SAG allows buyouts under certain conditions, but there are restrictions not found in the Disney contract.
For instance, the SAG TV
agreement forbids applying original compensation against residuals for
day players and term players. As to all other performers they “may
agree to an advance payment for reruns…provided the payment is
separately listed and is paid in addition to the salary…”)
You’ll notice that this
particular despicable pre-condition isn’t included in Lifetime’s “Army
Wives” contract. (Which I will post next) But then most savvy adult
actors wouldn’t go for that sh*t.
What can we say Mickey loves kids.

AFTRA ratifies ABC, CBS contracts
Roughly 200 members ink digital deals
By DAVE MCNARY
Members of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists have
ratified two-year contracts with ABC and CBS for their respective
network news staffers.
agreements take effect May 16 and cover about 200 on-air journalists at
the network divisions of ABC and CBS, including news anchors,
correspondents and reporters.
"These agreements are a big step
forward for broadcast journalists as they improve wages and benefits,"
said AFTRA president Roberta Reardon in a statement. "Given the state
of the broadcast industry and emerging new media platforms in
particular, the new agreements with ABC and CBS protect AFTRA members
as they work in the digital landscape, and secure current contract
AFTRA said the agreements include pay increases for
network staffers, fee increases for freelance correspondents,
improvements in pension coverage, and coverage for work by members in
new digital platforms.
The agreements were approved by AFTRA's
national board administrative committee last week after the terms had
been ratified by the affected members.
Earlier this year, AFTRA
reached a tentative agreement with the recording industry on its sound
recordings code and with the four major TV networks and producers on
the network television code, which covers non-primetime work.
