On the Ball? No, not lately.

Sorry, I'm too busy for this ish some times. I hate when people say "ish" instead of "shit".


Last night I had a total nerd-fest at home by myself. I watched the Oscars with my computer and a pizza and some beers, as I followed along with the Onion's AV Club Live Blog and the Tweets of Diplo, John Hodgman and NPR. It was awesome(ly lame).


If you like Radiohead and Jay-Z, you should stream or download the Jaydiohead album by Minty Fresh Beats. Looks like I found this one later than the rest of the world, since Carson Daly knew about it early last month, but whatever, it's well done and free so check it out. Yeah, I know, Dangermouse/White Album, blah blah. It's still fun if you like the music.


Also, Eastbound & Down on HBO is hilarious.


What's new in YOUR WORLD?

Worse Best Picture: Crash or Slumdog? Discuss....

Tim said...

Oh come on, you just hate Indians and you always have. Seriously though, I did love Slumdog (maybe because I saw it pre-hype.. never pay attention to the hype). Crash was definitely the worst Best Picture.

Come on Stiles, I hate Sri Lankans. You know this.

Slumdog was visually beautiful, but had flimsy, one dimensional characters and a farcical (yep, farcical) plot. Crash was a worse movie, but Slumdog won't be remembered as a classic.

I really disagree. I think it will be remembered as a classic. It wasn't exactly realistic, but it was far from a farce. I didn't like the villain, but I thought the other characters had lots of depth and surprises.

Truthfully I thought Milk was a much "better" movie. It was much more powerful, had better acting, etc. But Slumdog is a classic love story, and an underdog story, that people love, myself included. In summation, go fuck yourself. Any further dissenting comments will not be published, as they are now subject to moderation.

Weak Stiles. Your 6 readers are going to revolt against this oppression.
