What Good Are Notebooks?

There. A new picture of me. At my parent's apartment in Princeton.

I feel like Life in Wartime. I've changed my hairstyle so many times now...

The Asylum must be getting pretty tired of the hate the press and the interwebs throw at them. They're the only one of the complete independent producers still able to get their pictures into Blockbuster anymore.

I could make a whole class argument about how the art-house film business requires that the filmmakers have patrons who can put money into films which have no realistic expectation of financial returns -- because they can afford it. A company like the Asylum puts their own money in -- they have no need for a patronage system. So of course they're hated...

In any case, The Asylum is moving to Burbank and they're kinda defensive about it.
