only problem is coming up with a script that isn't totally "film noir",
Dirks and Schanks are great names for some villainous characters, though they lack the pizzazz of a fool idiot like Greg Noval... do either of them have a ranch, drink to excess, or have some personal vulnerability we could exploit for entertainment value?
or a beautiful and reckless wife who is taking over the company in some underhanded way???
we may just have to make up some stuff, for the next screenplay
"Ciao, Sonde My Love"
"Fools of Libya"
or it may just be
"I left my Brains in Calgary, but Fell in Love in Houston"
looks like alot of work, we'll need more characters, might just have to make them up too! Feel free to make up your own character, and if you can come out as the Hero, saving Sonde from the evil Joint Oil cabal, run by mysterious strangers with ties to the Houston Brotherhood, it will be a big hit!
These guys will slice away whatever they need to maintain the illusion that there will be some big upside in the stock.
as long as it takes - so they continue to draw their salaries.
Hard to believe there will be a deal with Joint Oil, and they'll slice away SOQ's share to maintain the illusion.
same thing happened with different managers in T&T,
and Greg Noval worked the gig in Nova Scrotia with hype alone.
hard stock to trade, seems like just yesterday they were pumping their potential shale acreage for eventual E&P, then they sold it to make some money to support the financial situation. Made some money, though if they didn't have enough interest to do more than the measly 3 wells, they should have informed investors.
and their names are even slicing implements - a dirk is a dagger,
and a schank is a prison weapon made out of a spoon...
