March

Though I continue to neglect this blog, always I think of you, dear reader, and wonder how you are.

What is up?

1. The Oscars.
Lame.

I was annoyed to watch The Social Network win for best adapted screenplay. That movie is, in my very correct opinion, an excellent example of how modern cinema is failing in the narrative-construction department. There was no real drama or conflict; the movement of the entire story was forced; the dialogue was so artificial and the performances so stiff that I performed my requisite Groaning and Moaning and Bitching all through the film, yet waved away any annoyed offers of turning the damn thing off and watching Jersey Shore instead. (I like to make a scene).

2. Weather.
It’s cold here, still. I think it will never end.

3. The baby.
Is all grown up, a year old.

One response to “March

  1. Wasn't all that impressed with the Oscars. I was pulling for anyone other than “The Social Network” to win.

    Halfway through a Pynchon novel–so far, it's more of a chore than a delight. On the other hand, I found some cheap Fiona Apple CDs at a thrift store and I'm really liking her. Good stuff!

    Down here in the read states, the weather is turning nice enough for the convertibles to go around topless.
