And The Oscar Goes To...

So the Oscars were on tonight. Did anybody care? Just kidding. Sort of. I find it hard to care as the only movie I've seen that was nominated for anything was The Bourne Ultimatum, which won for Best Sound. I haven't seen any of the Best Picture nominees, though I can't wait to see No Country For Old Men (Best Picture Winner!) when it comes to DVD. Can't say any of the others will be too near the top of my rental queue though. What's more fun than actually watching the Oscars though is visiting the various websites that are covering it. Way faster, and usually a lot funnier too. That way I can see who won for best makeup (really? At least it wasn't Norbit) while spending my night watching Beverly Hills Cop II (back when Eddie Murphy was still watchable). Way more fun.

Did anyone catch the Pittsburgh Penguins / San Jose Sharks hockey game this afternoon? Was flipping through the channels and saw that TSN was going to cover it. Great! A Sunday afternoon hockey game. The best part was at the start, as they told us the game would be delayed because the Zamboni blew a gasket and left its transmission fluid at centre ice. When it backed away and revealed the huge pool of red fluid, it looked like it had run over something at the red line. Some of the fans didn't appreciate the fumes either. Oh well, they got it cleaned up and played the game. San Jose won.

And what could be coming from Apple on Tuesday? Going to be something. They've got limited time discounts on refurbed aluminum iMacs on their website, so they're trying to move those for some reason and the other week Best Buy had MacBook Pros on sale for $200 off, which they rarely ever do. Maybe they've got something new. Or maybe they'll just let us know they're finally going to ship those new Time Capsules a month late...

OH Man! that's so true!

Didn't watch the Oscars, either. Only saw "Ratatouille" the Bourne movie, anyway--but I do want to see "There Will Be Blood" and maybe a couple others.

Oops! Missed the word "and"--made it seem like "Ratatouille" is some sort of animated secret agent-spy-assassin flick.

Swinebread: Oh indeed. Imagine seeing a DVD on the shelf with the words "Oscar Winning Norbit"? I don't want to live in that world.

Keanan: Actually, a rat that's an animated secret agent-spy-assassin-cook is something I'd watch. Send your idea to Pixar pronto!
