Having just wrapped AMC's Best Picture Showcase, I now feel that I'm well informed enough to give you my Oscar Picks.
I know, it's late, but c'mon; the faster we get through this the faster we can say that we've done it and go on with our lives. Deal?
Once again I've participated in AMC's Best Picture Showcase. Nine films spread across the last two Saturdays in February. It's a challenge, but once again I've bested it.
What follows is my crude attempt to break down the films and spot similar themes.

Is it time for the Oscars already? This Sunday A-listers and seat-fillers will fill the Kodiak Theatre. Once there they will sit in their seats offer up faux-applause for their colleagues and compatriots. It's an annual tradition that's more akin to a Homecoming Court contest than a genuine gauge of talent. And when it's all said and done, one celebrity triumphs over all the others.
Of course we're talking about the annual Montage of the Dead and who get's the incredibly coveted closing spot.

I can remember a couple years back when Greek yogurt was sweeping across the country. Greek yogurt was the cool new treat. I never bothered to investigate and find out what differentiated Greek yogurt from regular yogurt or what made it better. Yogurt's not my thing.
But when I saw something emblazoned with a "new" lid in the Ben & Jerry's freezer I got excited. Then I saw it was an entire line of Greek Frozen Yogurt. My excitement decreased by 50%.
Like I said yogurt's not my thing.

It’s so funny that Maya Rudolph is hosting Saturday Night Live this week because just under a week ago Jay1 and I were discussing how Maya Rudolph lost one of the bits in her repertoire with the passing of Whitney Houston. And boom, Maya’s back on SNL.
I know it’s been awhile since I did a Sunday Morning Quarterback (or even really posted anything on the blog) but I’m back. And baby, I promise, I’ve changed. Things will be different now.

Humans are inherently flawed. We all have our shortcomings and demons. In that respect Whitney Houston was no different then any of us. Despite being an immensely talented international superstar and selling over 100 million records, she couldn't shake her addictions...

Like quite a few people, I discovered the The Kills via The Dead Weather. When I saw The Dead Weather perform I was entranced by Alison Mosshart and I wanted more. So I got into The Kills.
The last time The Kills were in the area was last Easter, when they also played 930 Club. I totally meant to go to that show, but the stars weren't lined up. So, when I saw they were coming back around this way, I knew I had to see them.

Ok. So I know I've ignored this blog for months, which is why I was all super proud about my Sunday Morning Quarterback post from a few weeks ago. The kind of "proud" that a deadbeat dad must feel when he takes his kid to the movies after ignoring his kid for weeks.
And much like that deadbeat dad, when Skip Serpico hit me up to tell me he was going to miss SNL this week my first thought was, "shit, I gotta do this again?! Didn't I just do this a few weeks ago?!
At any rate, I was actually excited to see that a new episode was coming on and even though it featured 2 two people I could care less about.
Here we go.
