It occurs to me that, given the buzz in the blogosphere, I should probably should say something about the Academy Awards and Chris Rock's performance. The things is I didn't really watch it, catching maybe the last 15-20 minutes. Troglotyke #1 and I watched Hoosiers on ESPN Classic instead to get pumped for our 6th grade boys basketball playoff game tonight.
Chris Rock is alleged to be one of the more intelligent entertainers today, but I have found that satirical minds are often confused with genius, particularly in Hollywood. As for the Oscars, my interest has been waning since Dead Poets Society was nominated for best picture. Each year it becomes easier to find something else to do, as I fire my pop gun in the culture war.
