Oscar Nominations/ SOTU Open Thread

In honor of Brokeback Mountain’s Oscar nominations, I present you Broke Mac Mountain.

Oh yeah- Bush is delivering the SOTU. I will read it later, as I intend to be playing Halo or watching L4yer Cake.

Consider this an open thread. Consider hitting the the Tip Jar. Pretty Please.

    I’m with the Talking Points Memo guy, I can’t really watch the SOTU speech anymore. The damn thing’s practically a pep rally anymore, with 5 minute applause breaks every 2 minutes. Half of Bush proposes never make sense, or end up as bureaucratic nightmares. The other half are attempts to cover up his screw-ups and illegal activities. We’re better off waiting for the Daily Show assessment later on.

    Oh, and about the Oscars: dammit, when will Luis Guzman get his props?

    Layer Cake is a quality film. Tell me tommorow if the last line of the movie even occured to you as you watched it.

    I just really feel the need to recommend this string of comments to regular readers who may have missed it. If you miss it, you’ll never know the reason for Darrell’s new nickname!

    Man, that thread is even better than the SOTU drinking game. I’ll play that for a while, but I have a feeling that LOTR, Return of the King will be in the cards tonight before the speech is done.

    What’s Darrell’s new nickname? Greasemonkey has edited his prattle out of my life, so I’ve kind of missed out on this?

    Be nice to Darrell. You guys have driven off every other Republican. I haven’t seen Stormy in several days, Rick is gone, Al Maviva quit, and SCS is AWOL today.

    DougJ still thrives, though.

    Steve says:

    It actually has occurred to me, John, that the site would get awfully boring if we did run them all off. I do miss “Cordially…” Rick, he was good with the snark. As for Al Maviva, sometimes you think he’s been gone for a week, when he’s actually just spent the whole time just typing a long post.

    Anyway, the Senator is made of tough stuff. He can take a little ribbing.

    For some godforsaken reason the Academy limits the special effects awards to only three movies at a time. Which is ridiculous when you figure there’s usually 10-20 good movies deserving of the chance that there ought to be a solid 5 titles to nominate.

    Almost beaten to the punch by pooh — Layer Cake rocks.

    Those of you who wonder why I say “almost” there need to reacquaint yourselves with the Cole Porter of post punk.

    Have you considered the possibility they’ve all gone into hiding to avoid any Abramoff subpeonas?

    Stormy is probably doing what I’m doing…preparing tequila over ice for SOTU. We Texans (even the temporarily displaced ones) love to drink when the President is jabbering.

    What do the President’s mouth noises have to do with you Texans’ wanting to drink?

  18. 18

    Alright, what I want to know is if you guys/gals are actually gonna be here for the SOTU?

    Let me know by saying Senator Cornyn Darrell if you are.

    That is ridiculous. ILM usually has three deserving movies out in a year by themselves. I can’t argue with Kong or War of the Worlds, but Revenge should really be nominated instead of Narnia, which had very good special effects, but not Revenge level. Kong will probably win, but War of the Worlds should (Since Revenge didn’t get on the list).

    Layer Cake – Best. Movie. Ever. Loved it.

    I AM nice to Darrell, and he still twists around everything I say and then calls me dishonest. But, if you want us to roll over and show our bellies to the right-wingers in order to keep them from being scared off…well, it’s your site. Your prerogative.

    Why do you think I can still hang out with you guys? I am made of sterner stuff, and the buzz will blunt you idiots posters who sling your arrows. ( I always feel wax eloquent when my boy, Bush is speechifying.)

    I was gone this weekend celebrating my BD in Austin, where I whupped my family in Pitch.
    Plus, my dad made me hotcakes and Peanut-butter French Freedom toast. We also dined on green chili stew and Manuel’s fine Tex-Mex dining.

    Texicans drink because we can. We can.

    Does anyone else’s BDs start going backward once the 35 threshold has been met. Mine do.

    Have you seen Origins new line of Mushroom skin care products.
    Planidote, with Mega-Mushrooms. I am a sucker for Origins marketing. They have me where they want me. Plus, they will send you a ten dollar coupon for your BD.

    How can you people actually defend the fact that Sheehan was removed for her T-Shirt…FOr her FUCKING T-SHIRT!

    There’s a nice segue between Sith and SOTU… :smirk:

    Looks awesome, doesn’t it? Right now, out of my price range. So out of necessity, I’m a Noxema girl. My nanny, at 85, has skin like a baby’s, and all she ever used was Dove soap and Oil of Olay. Mind you, she also never smoked and always wore a hat in the sun, so that probably has more to do with it.
