But she has a knack for showing how stupid the whole Hollywood reporting scene is without ever being nasty or snotty about it. Plus she always talking about doing shots and peeing. I mean, I know her public persona may have very little to do with how she actually is, but she comes off as being really unpretentious about her sudden fame.

It's definetly not for everyone, but I dig it....but it's no "Bob's Burgers", which I'm a firm believer is the best thing on FOX right now.
Come to think of it, I've only seen late FG and early AD which may be why I think both of them suck.

Yeah, seen it! XD And, really, the boob song is worth a look. His delivery is great and the Kate Winslet bit is amusing. But he lost me at The Accused and Boys Don't Cry.

Carrie really liked the Hunger Games, so I'll assume it's a good movie. I'll wait for it to become available via streaming. But I agree, she comes off delightful in interviews and what not, and her publich persona is very much more in-sync with people like the delightful Tina Fey, than say Ke-dollar sign-ha.

Ooh, then it explains your stance. Not the best showcase of his talents. If you're geniunely interested on watching some of the better stuff, I can recommend which seasons to watch, but if you don't have Hulu or Netflix instant at your disposal, no biggie.

I think my favorite response to the McFarlane-hosting thing was something tweeted like 10 minutes ago. Paraphrasing, because it took like 4 tweets to set up, but the punchline was:
"I understand people being upset at McFaralne, but yo, how is Hollywood not at fault as well? THEY HAD AN EVENING CELEBRATING RAPE-ENTHUASIST JAMES BOND FOR CRYING OUT LOUD".

I thought that it was an excellent adaptation of a decent book and was therefore decently excellent. Or excellently decent. Except the costumes sucked. Which was disappointing, as they are kind of a big deal in the story.

Well, I basically feel like, "It's Seth MacFarlane. What did you expect? Dry wit and highbrow references?"

I would expect nothing less from Seth MacFarland. The heads of the Committee should know that if they hire a man like that, they get what he's famous for.

And Thank you, KAZbear, for the nice compliment. Ray was my audio tech. It helps to have the ADR director of "Macross Plus" on your side. ^_^

Interesting fact I learnt today, Kimberly Peirce, the Director of Boys Don't Cry, is directing the new Carrie remake staring Chloe Mortez and Jodie Foster.

Huh. Right click, move from 'low expectations' to 'might actually be worth something'.

The heads of the Committe are probably a bunch of white dudes over the age of 50 and probably thought he was the best, although not being as good as Billy Crystal.

Considering my wife is named Carrie, I am not allowed to even THINK of seeing that movie, let along seeing it. Long, obvious story as to why she would hate it.

The weather is godawful herre and I have a ton of errands to run, which involve the ever inconvenient bus. Yuck. (But on the plus side, I won six bucks on a scratch card! And it's Roll Up The Rim season, so I may get something there too once I finish my cappuccino.)

Interesting. My sister and her friend used to quote the original ad nauseum.

Well, people are entitled to rant. If my job were to write internet articles, I could unpack the boob song in the context of sexism and Hollywood's self-satisfied hypocrisy as well as enumerate all the various ways that the song could have been done so that it was actually a satire and not just LOL-boobs. Or - more relevantly - how it could have been LOL-boobs without being quite so sexist or gross. But luckily for both of us, that is not my job.

It should also be said - MacFarlane did not put on that show by himself. It was the work of an entire team of writers as well as producers and directors. But everyone always hates the show and bashes the host. Whatever. I didn't watch it. I'm disappointed that the boob song wasn't better.

Since getting Jiji I've talked with Brandon about what happened with the first cat I owned, Princess. Who was also a black cat and incredibly similar in appearance to Jiji. I understand that for people who aren't pet owners, or specifically cat owners, telling the difference between two cat's that are same breed and color might seem impossible. But I grew up with Princess from the age of around 5 to around 15, I could confidently say I knew her apart from any other cat.

While talking with him I realized that to this day I still feel absolutely horrible and found myself getting visibly upset. She died under very poor circumstances and even though I felt at the time she died I was fine and it wouldn't bother me I am finding myself frequently feeling an intense loss that I did feel at the time. So the other day I made a little cat tag with her name on it and I felt strangely better.

And I am aware that for most people feeling mournful over a cat is nonsense.

It seems like around that time in my childhood I had a lot of unresolved deaths that just never where events I could properly deal with and handle. Being able to talk with Brandon about it makes it feel easier and it wasn't until I had him that I understood what I was really lacking at the time wasn't exactly a way to mourn but someone to support me during that time.

Grocery shopping tomorrow.

I'm going to purchase as many rolled oats as I can afford and spend the weekend making/eating flapjacks.
