Did the indieWIRE blogs section used to be better (or am I just getting old)?

The indie (real indie) & amature enthusiasm of indieWIRE blogs section seems to be over (or at least it feels like it) & there does not seem to be many blogs on there now that post interesting content.  Maybe it's a temporary thing, a summer thing perhaps, maybe things will get better in the fall.  Or, perhaps the days of indie-film-blogs-as-entertainment are over (i guess it was a good thing i filmed indie film blogger road trip back in '08 - which now seem like a golden era for indie film blogging).  Maybe everyone's moved on to better things, or other platforms such as Twitter & Facebook.  Anyway, kids, back in the day, you were able to go to the indieWIRE blogs page & read some very interesting stories about independent movies & business.  Blogs then were as interesting or in some cases more interesting than the movies & the making of movies that they wrote about.  Now, not so much (although, a couple of blogs on iW blogs page are still very interesting, so, maybe the iW blogs page will make a comeback).

Or, another option (other than waiting for indieWIRE blogs page to get better) is for someone to organize a well financed indie film blogging site that pulls in a lot of interesting voices/bloggers from all corners, & pays bloggers to blog, & create a more interesting/less dull alternative to indieWIRE - a fun place to visit to find out about indie movies, related drama & comedy, etc.  Jump on this idea bright young entrepreneurs, make it happen (& get rich doing it - hopefully :)

"The Real Ben Stiller" (working title) - new summer project

the final half awake dream of last night was a conversation with movie star ben stiller at a doctor's office, & now it's a one page summary of a feature length script. new summer project - "The Real Ben Stiller" (working title). let me know if anyone knows a good ben stiller look-alike/actor in NYC.

i'd say, very loosely speaking, it's "being john malcovich"(sp?) meets maybe a certain kind of star trek episode (yes, space aliens are involved in this story) or maybe columbo/monk/quiet city - some kind of a mystery show meets john cassavette's (sp?) shadows (very, very lightly).  how's that for a clear description? :)
