Happy Birthday, Aragorn
My Annaliese -- we are sorry we missed your birthday over the weekend, but Aragorn says the package we sent you would have made a mess in the pinata. I have your Yule movie, and a Boromir figure for you, and I will mail that package as soon as Lee's movie arrives.
Remember my story of Trilogy Tuesday with Jim and Chris? check this out
So, I was working late with Titania Macintosh on my lap on the couch, and I left the post oscar coverage on low in the background. I am glad Jim had fallen asleep, so he did not have to watch steam pour out of my ears. (again... we had already had an earlier conversation including the words: photoshop, mozilla, eudora and dreamweaver)
all the coverage was insipid, but ebert and roper made my blood boil about a dozen times. let me just mention these two incidents - (they are not direct quotes because it's hard to type when you are throwing things)
** now three movies have won 11 awards - but these big epics move people for the moment, they have no real passion, no connection to people's hearts...
(excuse me? have you been under a rock for fifty years? just in movie terms,how many winners did you hear thanking the fans, talking about their passions in the post show interviews? you are *not* some guy on the street expressing an opinion that happens to differ from mine - you are being paid for this opinion - do your bloody homework or get off the fucking couch)
** and perhaps my favorite
we appreciated Charlieze Theron more because of the contrast to her normal beauty and the way she looked in this movie - she didn't look like a beautiful star -she looked more like one of the Oscar girls, you know, the ones who hand up the statues...
(no homework will absolve you of this one. Just get the fuck off my tv.)
