Snoozefest

And I thought this year's Oscars was supposed to be edgy. I was entirely under whelmed. I missed the beginning of Chris Rock's monologue but what I caught of it was solid. He's a great stand-up so it was funny, although a little tame.

Although it finished on time (I think), it felt like 5 hours. I did love, however, how they shaved extra time off the clock by having all the "lesser" nominees on stage when the winner was announced so all the winner had to do was walk two feet to the podium, while the losers skulked off. Another nice touch was how they didn't even bother to present certain awards from the stage, as when Cate Blanchett presented for...I don't remember. Was it the animated short? The lifetime achievement of storyboard artists? Best Sound Something or Other? Can't remember.

I think they can shorten the show even more. Instead of talking to nominees in the aisles, they should have a second stage. The second stage would play host to categories like Makeup and Visual Effects and it would take place simultaneously with the categories that viewers were actually interested in. And if you really were interested in seeing the Sound Mixing winner, you could look to the lower left hand corner of the screen and see the drama unfold in a slightly more condensed format, with text scrolling underneath so you could read what was happening.

Did anything even happen tonight? That Canadian guy with a ponytail did a strange sort of head bob...ummmmm...the white haired guy with the monotone voice was a buzz kill, sucking what little energy there was out of the building.

One of the award recipients looked toward the sky and thanked his mom and dad. It should be noted that his parents are both flight attendants and very much alive. Many viewers were unnecessarily touched by the sentiment. He was just saying "Hey!" cause they were working tonight.

I didn't take any notes really so this is about all I have to say. Oh, and the party? Guy thought it would be a great idea to make some type of Chinese hamburgers. When I first saw them I got excited, thinking he'd made pupusas. But they weren't. They were Chinese hamburgers. Don't ask what they were called. I don't know. But they were a little greasy--meat fried in some kind of dough.

We were all kind of bored. Where were the siblings making out? The one-armed push-ups? The crippling tears? Hyper Italians stepping on the seats?

Sadly, they weren't present tonight.

Your thoughts?

I skipped it as well.

Laura? Not one bit of commentary on eveningwear? No photos of the Chinese burgers?

Anyway, missed the Oscars. But the episode of Venture Bros. on cartoon network was completely riveting.

MastaShaq said...

:D i love the venture brothers, poor brock and his mullet,

Healer2K said...

The ONLY reason I watched the Oscars was to see how and what Chris Rock would do. Sadly, I missed the first 20 minutes, which it appears was when he did his stuff. Fortunately, Roger Ebert shared parts of it on our local news later, or the next day. Rock had this bit joke about DUBYA, The Gap, and toxic tank top shirts that was both cutting and hilarious. I liked Foxx's speech. Loved Swank's dress. *drool* And Sean Penn needs to buy a sense of humor. lol!

VP-RX HAS HELPED OVER 1,000,000 MEN AROUND THE WORLD

The penis is made up of 3 chambers, 2 large ones on top, which is your erectile tissue (Corpora Cavernosa), and 1 smaller chamber on the bottom from which you urinate and ejaculate (Corpus Spongisum).When you are sexually aroused, your brain releases a hormone causing blood to enter the penis and fill your erectile tissue (Corpora Cavernosa).Corpora The cells in the Corpora Cavernosa are filled with blood until an erection is achieved. You can have a BIGGER PENIS! VPRX will increase the capacity limit of the Corpora Cavernosa thus allowing more blood to enter the cavern creating a longer and thicker erection. VPRX stimulates cell growth within the corpora cavernosa itself. An increase in cells allows for more blood to enter the penis making the penis larger and the erection more intense. The corpora cavernosa are the two bodies of erectile tissue on each side of the penis. VPRX is 100% natural with no known side effects. All growth is permanent.

Well I just got back from karate lessons and I am so tired. I am currently doing some research for college and came across your blog. Which makes me laugh really. The internet can certainly bring you in the opposite direction. Even though your blog site is not completely related I think your doing a great job. I have read back through the archives and lots of people make some very valid points. Well I have been on-line forever it seems. I need to continue to plug away at massage therapy boston. If you have the energy swing by our site. I try to update my site weekly and maybe you will see something you like. I already snagged your URL and put it in my favorites. If you do not mind I will be back again. Great job! Sincerely massage therapy boston.

Hello! This is a great blog. I just got back home from shopping with the wife and the kids and decided to log on and do some web surfing.(needed a break if you know what I mean) I came across your blog and really enjoyed it. Not many people keep their blogs up to date and most of the blogs I do fine are not even relevant to the blog topic. I bookmarked your blog for future reference.
Anyways keep up the great work and if you don�t mind I will forward your blog off to a few of my buddies. Thanks a bunch!portable massage therapy chair
