Big day here at the Crooks And Liars Compound.
I honestly don't think I've seen John this happy since he beat Simon Le Bon at ping pong. He's just aglow, spontaneously playing flute solos as he merrily skips between the official C&L polo grounds and croquet fields...we're all real psyched.
Why? Well, it's always a treat when your blog gets an EXCLUSIVE peek at a MAJOR MOTION PICTURE. (I write in all caps because I JUST FEEL SO STRONGLY ABOUT IT)!
I'll cut to the chase: the cinematic geniuses who created the recent adaptation of Atlas Shrugged are at it again. Originally envisioned as a trilogy, there was ominous talk that the producers might be deterred by unbelievably bad reviews, crap box office, and the general pall of suck that hung over the project like the ghost of a terrible macroeconomic scheme.
So we're of course pleased as punch the producers have found a way to soldier on, while still maintaining their principled stance of wanting to make shloads of money. When your bottom line is suffering, every libertarian warrior knows what to do: cut costs and hope for the best.
Good luck guys!
(...Oh, and by the way. For anyone who would like more info on collectivism and film: a. NERD ALERT, and b. here's a primer. And, y'know, it's probably unfair to claim that f-d up libertarian belief systems are the reason these particular libertarians are so bad at movie-making, but life is so short and libertarians are so sensitive. Let's go for it)!
