What the hell, people...
And there ain't no Internet here. Hell, I'm lucky those old farts have indoor plumbing. I'm typing this from a public library.
I did watch the Awards show at a watch party to which my sister forced me at gunpoint to go to. I liked Martin and Baldwin.
Could anybody at last night's award show mention anything about that fucking Precious without tearing the hell up? No way am I going to see that film. Bleech. If I want to see a toxically dysfunctional family in action, I'll just stick around my parents' house until my brother and sister come down. And that will be in quadrophic 3-D with enhanced bass, let me tell you.
I do have to see The Hurt Locker now. I saw enough clips last night to know that things blow up in that one. Blow up real good.
In the end, The Hurt Locker offends the least amount of fans in winning, EXCEPT THAT and I truely emphasize this, the sad part is that bomb squads may have been offended in stating that soldiers in a squad don't count the amount of bombs they diffuse (it's considered taboo,) and always work together, they NEVER showboat. Now that's just a shame. Sure, civilians don't know that, and so they gain respect for the soldiers and what they do, but if the soldiers themselves get offended by it than what's the point?
Take a drive through Compton. You'll find the mausoleum-like atmosphere back in the 'rents' basement kinda nice after that.
Failing that adventure, hit a Downey mall.
Oh, wait. You've been grounded, haven't you?
As long as you've known me, and we've even met, and you didn't know I was raised in the 'hood? I'm just a brother underneath thin veneer of white skin, dripping with soul.
Oh wait, that wasn't me. That was somebody else.
That should tell you how much I "enjoyed" the show
Could Doogie Howser get any gayer?
I like Jeff Bridges and I gronk Maggie but there ain't no way in hell I'm gonna see a movie about country music!
Precious : I thought it was a sequel to Lord of the Rings about Gollum. Ain't no way in hell I'm gonna see that tear jerker! Just like I do when choosing a book, if Oprah likes it don't buy it.
Think I'd see Alice in Wonderland before I'd see The Hurt Locker
I made a lengthy Oscar post, and it apparently was sent to the administrators for moderation. WTF?!?!?
I don't think the "administeators" really check what's in there and there's no rhyme or reason why it was snatched away.
We have the Doe Queue, the Ray Queue, the Me Queue. I'm pretty sure his post was sent to the Fah Queue.
It was a rather lengthy post; I'm not gonna retype it all. But in short:
*Martin and Baldwin were okay hosts - mostly they were stuck with weak jokes. The snuggie bit was cute. My dream host: Jim Carrey. Or hell, bring back Billy Crystal!
*I made an initial post back in late Jan or early Feb where I correctly predicted all the major category winners except for Best Actress (I predicted Streep, and I still think she *SHOULD HAVE* won).
*I'm glad Kathryn Bigelow won Best Director, but The Hurt Locker did not deserve Best Original Screenplay. That would be, um, Inglorious Basterds - the most original WWII film in years.
He's mad with power don't ya know
of his parent's basement, and subject to being grounded for the slightest of infractions. Since house rules prevent computer access until all homework and chores have been completed to their satisfaction, Coaster must sneak out through the basement window in his bedroom.
The local library is fronting his computer access.
The unlocked basement window is filled with former female classmates anxious to reaquaint themselves with the dark recesses of his bedroom.
The milk and cookies being forced upon one and all by his mother is causing severe withdrawal symptoms.
In some places in America, it could be considered porn.
Have I got an idea for him!!!
Hot off the press, and all it involves is a few air miles.
I wish I had thought of that years ago.
In no particular order:
Johnny Depp (an audience favorite, he WILL win in the next ten years)
Gary Oldman (has never even been nominated)
Peter O'Toole (been nominated at least six times!)
Vincent D'Onofrio (though he mostly does TV now)
Harrison Ford (though he's very hit-or-miss)
Samuel L. Jackson
Paul Giamatti (though he has a tendency to overact)
And the women:
Glenn Close (though she mostly does TV now)
Sigourney Weaver (the most prolific actress of the 1980s - and a three-time nominee - she now does mostly supporting work in indie films, Avatar notwithstanding)
Julianne Moore (nominated four times)
Maggie Gyllenhaal (I predict she's next on this list to win)
Discuss. And feel free to add to the list.
Many actors go unappreciated
