I don’t remember the last time I watched the Oscar telecast. It might have been the year Titanic won. I dunno. But I watched a portion of the 2011 telecast online last night from an ABC feed. I’d never seen the Red Carpet foolishness before. Wow. I knew Hollywood was shallow, but that was obscene. Actresses answering questions about what kind of dress they had on. Who cares about that?
I saw Public Enemies last night, directed by Michael Mann, starring Johnny Depp. It’s the dullest movie I’ve seen this year. I like the trailer more than the movie.

There’s so much inertia
