I gave in to peer pressure on Saturday and went to see Avatar. I would like to show you some pictures from my experience. Like this one… Wait, that’s not from the movie? Must have been this one… Oh, that’s a different psychedelic world. Well at least it had an original story… Oh. At least […]

So this was an Oscar night without a lot of groaner moments, which is nice for a change. Anyone catch those acrobats forming movie titles? Just when you thought the Academy had surpassed the cheesy nineties they bring in the shadow puppet people. I was a little annoyed by how many times the announcer kept […]


Just as soon as Scott starts getting better, imagine that, I come down with it! I’m off to the doctor today for a cough, and that’s twice in one month I’ve come down with something. Who’s ready for the end of winter? I am! There were some wins at the Oscars last night I was […]

We hung out last night with some friends I’ve known for a few years here in Seattle and had a little more fun than I should have on a week night. I’m gazing at the world through bleary eyes this morning. Oscar nominations came out yesterday, and as anybody who followed my old blog knows, […]

Aww, yesterday made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Now for the bad moments of the 77th Academy Awards. Let me clarify that this isn’t commentary on who won or lost. This is strictly Oscar night events. The Bad Chris Rock: In a year when conservative groups are putting up billboards across from the […]

Now that we’ve gotten the winners out of the way, it’s time to go over some of the best and worst moments of the Oscars this year. The Good I like to be positive first, even though my first positive comments may be marred by a complaint. The decision to mix up the under-appreciated categories […]

When I made my Oscar predictions in January, I made them before the firestorm of press coverage Million Dollar Baby received when a number of conservative commentators complained about its right-to-life message. I was worried when that happened. I’ve been studying Oscar patterns a long time and I knew that there was a chance voters […]

The Oscar nominees are out and it’s time for everyone to make some predictions. I have an odd sort of hobbyist’s interest in the patterns of the Academy; I know how to ignore the promotions, the stupid things celebrities say throughout the year and the annual onstage shennanigans and analyze with some accuracy how the […]
