Today is paperwork day over in the Pandora Machine.
Ha! As it turns out, today is suckity-day nobody's doing what they're supposed to and irking Drew day in the Pandora Machine. Aargh. We're missing a drive. It's the Millennium Crisis deliverables drive. If we have to create an M&E for the domestic version of that picture we're in trouble. I think we have virtually everything else.
So in addition to everything else I have to do, I gotta deal with that. It's going to be a long day.
I'm going to get another webcam to use as security in our office. And we're going to have to be more fearsome about not letting people use the studio for whatever dumbass thing they want to use it for.
Somebody over at Freakonomics is overthinking District 9. I still say that there's no way that battle mech is only going to get 100 cans of cat food. Heck, I'd get in there with a couple of my own Nigerians and pay you 100 cans of cat food for just one hour of a prawn in that thing. If you kill all my enemies I'll give you a 200 can bonus.
Another idiotic review over at Script Shadow. Considering how stupid the reviewers are, we should feel lucky that there's no way anyone at a big or small studio would actually listen to their advice. I mean, sure, there are very very very very few people who really have any idea what a script even might end up being when it becomes an actual movie but these kids seriously have zero idea. They also don't know anything about Milton.
The producer's report for Alien Uprising reads that our cumulative "net" (after sales rep fees and laboratory costs) to date for "overseas" sales is $28,390.
I still don't have our next script.
