"Hollywood accounting is like lawyering. They find loopholes in the system and exploit them to their advantage. The less money a film 'appears' to make (or more money it 'appears' to lose), the less tax they have to endure as a company. It's exploitative accounting at its finest."
"Hollywood accounting is like a blackhole, bullshit so deep that it is unobservable from the outside."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
