barbarians at the gates of the academy of motion
have you been to the movies? i haven't. but i can't resist the one time of year where hollywood people take their rightful place at the center of attention, population: them. the last movie i went to see at the theatre was either "team america: world police" or "water world 2: the spawning of lord foul's bane". but seeing as how last weekend's snl hosted by maya rudolph was 90 minutes of genius, and that billy crystal is still a little bit relevant, i think we can all assume oscar will run away with the awards, that there are no losers, except for those who didn't win, and that if mental retardation were fuel that the republican frontrunners could power the moon long enough for newt to repopulate it again, and that either one of those bigoted rice cakes would be about as effective running america as a magic 8 ball would be running a brothel. snap! which begs the question as to whether or not we need to refer to "the artist" as "a freedom" film. are we still doing that?
