My ma is in town visiting, so I made a minestrone soup and we’re going to cool out and watch the cheesefest.

uggghhh, the oscars, sorry alex. i'd rather watch kevin brown or randy johnson pitch. all three events i don't look forward too.

anyway, can someone help me please?...i'm trying to figure a way to find the box score of a game on july 10th, 1988 at yankee stadium. yankees vs. royals. i googled and can't find it. maybe i'm too dumb for this type of useless research. it was my first ever game at yankee stadium and i wanna see if i correctly remember jack clark having a homerun of his robbed by bo jackson....thank you to whoever can point me in a good direction. thank you.

Hey guess what Kirk, I don't care how old you are, you are a dickhead.

Can't beat minestrone.
Thelarmis loves it, I know.

I'm watching the MLBTV replay of the game now, instead of the Oscars. Keep me posted on any awesome oscarish developments.

Please let me know if any animated films win any awards. With children ages 5, 9, and almost 11, that's pretty much all I see nowadays.

Just saw Betances' inning. Nice.

[8] Yeah, Toy Story III won 'Best Animated Feature'. (I flipped over between innings.)

i found a recap and box score of the that game i was talking about earlier. my first game ever at yankee stadium, july 10 1988. bo stole a homer from jack clark. i see it so clearly that i thought i was imagining it or seeing a highlight and superimposing it onto my reality. clark's homer would have tied the game...damn, damn! i was so bummed. the line up was incredible. henderson, mattingly, randolph, dave winfield, jack clark....ron guidry pinch ran!..weird. rags pitched, tommy john started. PRIDE AND POWER....THE 1988 YANKEES!!!!!..hahahahaha.

i was 12 then in case anyone is wondering...i am 34 now.

Pedestrian Oscars. Which is a cut above bad Oscars. For me, it's not that the Oscar show is bad as much as it is that movies nowadays are bad. I hadn't heard of The King's Speech before the Oscar buzz. IIRC, the last movie I went out to see was The Dark Knight. The last Oscar I was excited to watch was to watch LOTR sweep.

Ann & Jason weren't great, but they weren't horrible. They're film actors, not live entertainers. There is a difference. But for me, Hollywood is too reliant on redoing a story or CGI.

If you've got good movies, the awards shows will take care of themselves.

Matt Zoller Seitz has an excellent write up about the broadcast at Salon:

[12] I went to see Inception; certainly not a bad film to watch in the theater, though it did slow down in the middle long enough to get a few winks in. Joseph Gordon-Levitt basically stole the show in my opinion; for some reason my roommate had me thinking he was Haley Joel Osmont throughout the entire film, which may have impressed me more tnhan it deserved, but it was still a good film.

Then she took me to see "Unknown", which is an ironic title since it's basically a recasting of Total Recall set in modern Berlin... Meh.

[14] And Jeff Bridges is a fine actor, and I'm sure his version of True Grit is good. But I've seen the movie already, and if John Frakking Wayne wins an Oscar for the role, it's time to retire it.

Hollywood, give me something original and good that doesn't rely on CGI.

15) The Wayne movie is terrible in comparison to the new one.
