Movie Making in a Recession – Interview with Film’s Co-Producers Derek Anderson and Victor Kubicek of The Halycon Company (Taking Stock)
Hey WB and Halcyon gave us Season 2 of TSCC, Frak Reilly and FOX, MiM is going to go check out Salvation and hope McG hasnt pulled a T3 but has instead given us a rebirth like the one we got from Abrams’ Trek….

From Mark Hemingway at The Corner, go read the whole thing, everyone should get to hear Joe once a day, the laughing has got to be among Joe’s greatest gifts to the American people as Veep..
Joe Biden gave the commencement address at Wake Forest yesterday. You can read the transcript here, but as to be expected, you could probably give yourself a pre-frontal lobotomy with a screwdriver that’s accidentally been dropped in the toilet and come off more coherent than Joe Biden…
“There’s not a single issue on this President’s plate that will not yield a change — just merely by ignoring it, it will change.”
“This has been the history of the journey of America — never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, never have the American people let their country down at rare moments, similar moments in our history. And it’s a journey we’re all going to take together.”
Biden then added, “Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down, never gonna run around and desert you. Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye, never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.”
Hey did Joe Biden just RickRoll the country?!
That’s Doctorate Joe Biden to you, BWAAAHAAAAA!! Hey my alma mater ASU wouldnt give one to TOTUS,
*I have something he dont have* nah nah nah nahh nah
So much for that apology and Brown standing by him yesterday huh? There but for the grace of biased media go thee Nancy Pelosi…see Critters, once you unleash this kind of anger in the populace to justify exorbitant spending and government control of private enterprise, it is very very hard to control it, and unless you live an honest lifestyle it will bring you down….it may bring you down anyway..thus the danger of the mob..but our DC pols are merrily skipping along lighting fuses left and right while sitting on powderkegs….
who will be Robespierre, I say TOTUS himself…..we wrote about the uncomfortable *ahem* direction of Team TOTUS and a possible future Committee of Public Safety in the numerous czar appointments here…
We covered this expense travesty here
We so need an investigation like this here, our Congress Critters are no doubt living high on the hog as they decry bankers and Wall St executive pay….witness Car Czar Rattner encroaching onto Sacred Indian Burial Land (apparently he has never seen a horror film) as he builds his massive Martha’s Vineyard mansion while he does ‘thug’ work for Team TOTUS violating heretofore ‘sacred’ (in the secular sense), contract law of the United States..
This same hypocrisy is visible in the way Hollywood lives while they lecture the flyover country, the way our Politicans are driven around in bullet proof Escalades and jet off where ever they can raise a crowd and collect some cash while advising us to drive compacts that actually well, COMPACT in an accident…frakkers..
sorry but this calls for VISION THING one more time!..another m-f in a motorcade…..sha la la la…
Speaker Martin’s apology yesterday:
Great vid from SchamckProductions with behind the scene pics of our favorite cast and crew:

Horror: Sam Raimi’s ‘Drag Me to Hell’ to screen at Cannes….other Cannes horror screenings include ultralow budget zombie film by Marc Price, ‘Colin’…
Oh I love this, LOL…we’ve come a long way baby, fer real, Evil Dead was always alone on a back shelf in the video store back in the day…Sam will have a ball! Oh I wanna see Bruce Campbell at Cannes one day, maybe after Sam finishes Spiderman 4 he will give us Evil Dead 4…
Fangoria..This was an interesting read that popped up this evening over at The Hollywood Reporter. In an article entitled CANNES’ RED CARPET IS BLOOD-SOAKED , the trade reports that ” The 62nd Festival de Cannes is turning into a bloodbath. ” They also state that viewers ” are enduring an onslaught of blood and gore from a lineup that has many questioning what point general director Thierry Fremaux and his programmers are trying to make. “…
Notice the SNOBS at the Hollywood Reporter say the Cannes audience had to ‘endure’ Sam’s film, hey DLTDHYWTLSY baby…there are PLENTY of actual FANS to make this film a success on its merits not some faux aristocratic honorific as far removed from the actual audiences as could be…..I hope Sam gets to Swagga down that gore splattered carpet in Cannes with a grin baby..ohh Bruce would ham it up, maybe we can convince Sam to bring him!
Steve Liesman breaking it on CNBC now..Charlie Gasparino has been calling TARP The Roach Motel..
FED: Supervisors now having discussions with several banks to repay TARP
Supervisors are requesting supplemental information for TARP repayment (WTH do they need after stress tests!)
No TARP repayment announcements expected until after June 8th
Supervisor will make recommendations on TARP repayment to the Treasury in batches (so no bank stands alone)
TARP repayment recommendations will be made to Treasury on monthly basis
Source: Treasury to announce process for auctioning TARP warrants in next several days
Treasury plans to spread out auction of warrants over several months
TEH ROOLZ TO REPAY TARP:
1. After repayment, still have to be able to pass stress test
2. Issue unguaranteed debt (no FDIC backup for you!)
3. Demonstrate ability to self-fund in the market (raising private capital)
4. Approval of supervisor
Dilution from repaying TARP: (Gov’t shares controlled by warrants as % of shares outstanding):
Morgan Stanley 5.22% (OUCH!)
Golden Slacks 2.42%
