The Few, the Proud…

Dec 19, 2007 in Other

Toys for TotsIs David Michael Latt finally making good on his promise to enlist in the Marine Corps despite the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy?

No. But he did accept the “Commander’s Award” at the Toys for Tots fundraiser on behalf of The Asylum for donating the most toys in our area.

We want to thank all of our friends and co-workers who contributed to the drive this year, especially Scott Meehan (for the most toys given by an individual) and Damien Puckler at Extreme Boot Camp in Simi Valley (for the most toys from another company). 

Happy Holidays and Semper Fi!

Empire Strikes Back

Dec 17, 2007 in News

The UK-based film magazine Empire did a feature on The Asylum for their January issue.

We’re not sure which we liked better; the fact that the story appeared just before an interview with Will Smith about his tie-in to I Am Omega; or the quote from David Michael Latt describing us with a euphemism for a person who has sex for money.

The issue is available at news stands now.

The Asylum on NPR

Dec 04, 2007 in News

Scott Simon, the host of NPR’s Weekend Edition Saturday, just interviewed our very own David Michael Latt for this week’s broadcast.

This is either one of the signs of the apocalypse, a GOP plot to utterly destroy public radio, or maybe we’re actually doing something right.

Regardless, we’re thankful to Scott and NPR for classing up the joint and we hope everyone tunes in to listen to Latt this Saturday… or on if you miss it.
