It’s Labor Day…that means Telluride Film Festival

One of these days SM is gonna raise up enough capital to get down to this world-class film festival. Maybe as soon as SM gets bought by Huffington Post we’ll head down. Maybe 2013. Yeah…maybe.

Oh we are sure there will be a surprise announcement that ‘The Master’ will play on 70mm and PTA will be there too. Such is life.
