This video, part of the Academy Conversations on Facebook, proves I can watch Rob Reiner doing anything. Someone in the Oscars social media department (or heck maybe it was Reiner himself) decided it would be a good idea to film him standing up in his office. So while getting to hear Reiner opine on various subjects (including an interest in a Spinal Tap sequel)–as great as that is–it is not so great to look up Reiner’s nose. You may disagree.
Really, it’s awkward. Funny, but awkward.
I love when Letterman facilitates bits like this one (From this week’s Tuesday night’s episode).
And while I feel bad for Sean Young’s personal struggles, I have to admit Lane’s joke early in this snippet is a good one. And Young clearly wanted this incident in the news, for whatever reason.
John Hughes died two years ago today. To observe this sad anniversary, I offer a link to the 2010 Oscars tribute to him (unfortunately Oscars blocked embedding) and also a 1991 tribute to him, when he was named Producer of the Year by the National Association of Movie Theater Owners.
Well to be honest, Saturday was my birthday, so I was swamped offline for a good part of the day.
Then tonight, I decided to lurk in the comments section of PopSmart (Creative Loafing Atlanta’s A&E blog) while they liveblogged the Oscars. It was the most fun I ever had watching the Oscars, honestly. An I got to learn more about a local indie movie theater and a filmmaker while talking with fellow commenters.
I’m unsure how well I will keep doing the third post of the week on the blog. Of course, as the readers, I understand if you say to yourself: “I’m unsure how well I’ll come by to read your blog, pal.” But rest assured, I will always have an interview up by late Monday evening and a post on Wednesday. The Saturday post is slowly morphing into a “sometime during the weekend” timed post. But hopefully my thoughts while late, will still interest.
