Yes, He's Still Alive . . . . *** updated
Happy (One day belated) birthday to Abe Vigoda.
Consider this an open thread for all things Oscar.
I'm really busy, and truthfully - I'm struggling a bit, and I'm sure you guys are tired of hearing me whine about it, so I've promised myself this will stop being the "Damn I miss Rene'" blog.
Bear with me.
Topics for discussion in comments, (People, talk, . . . . talk already!):
Did they get it right?
Worst part of show? etc.....
(No Dem primary talk allowed - I'm done with it)
60 minutes blackout? ( I've got a lot to say about this)
McCain bashing is always welcome.
Prairie View A&M student march to the polls.
The Weekend -
I worked and went to the Theatre, (big mistake - that's mostly the reason for my funk)
What did you do?
Perfect weather here, how about where you are?
Cook or eat anything good?
See a great website and or recipe?
Have you browsed Jaden's site yet?
It's Monday, I worked all weekend, and I'm pretty down, help me out here folks, and as ALWAYS :
Blog-Whoring is not only acceptable, it is encouraged!!
Random links to peruse at will:

Great, great, fabulous, excellent green company that I've been wanting to post about again.
1974 was a good year *** UPDATE - That is, look at what all was released that year! -
The Great Gatsby
Murder On The Orient Express
The Godfather: Part II
The Man With The Golden Gun
Look through the rest of that list, there are at least 8 other films that are worthy of remembrance for one reason or another. Yeah, it was a good year.
Interesting to note how some films hold up, Blazing Saddles is no less funny, or topical, or relevant today than it was 34 years ago, same for Gatsby and Godfather II. The trial of Billy Jack, not so much, but it was pretty damn good back in the day.
