Take This, Hollywood

Today's Day-By-Day cartoon contains a very important message you may have missed, and one heck of a way to thumb your nose at the Moonbats.

Hollywood's attempts to storm theaters with anti-war movies have failed of late - miserably.

JD Johannes is trying to prove that the problem lies in their perspective:

People often complain about Hollywood's leftward tilt when it comes to Iraq, but few do anything pro-active about it.

I am trying to
do something about it.

I have
nearly died a few times trying to do something about it. [...]
Hollywood and the entertainment industry is a business focused on the bottom line. If people want Hollywood to produce a pro-victory film, or a pro-troop television series, they will have to demonstrate that it is economically viable.

Most of the anti-war films have taken a beating at the box office.

Brian DePalma's 'Redacted' grossed $65,388, but cost $5million to make and 'Home of the Brave' only brought in $51,708 domestically.
Here's his plan, and his call to action:

To beat 'Redacted's' box office gross, takes the sale of 2,900 DVDs. Just 2,900 DVDs sold.

To demonstrate to Hollywood and the cable TV networks that a pro-victory documentary is viable, I need to sell 2,900 in 6 weeks.

2,900 total DVDs. It doesn't matter if it is
2,000 individual episodes and 900 of the double-disc trilogy .

2,900 DVDs sold pokes Hollywood in the eye and shows that a pro-victory documentary can beat the studios.
Sounds good to me. I bought 2. 2898 to go....
