The Academy Awards: Live Ignora-Blogging from ResurrectionSong

All night long, I'll be ignoring the Oscars and talking about other stuff. That's right, I don't know who will win Best Actress. I'm entirely ignorant of which Actor might walk away with a big ol' pat on the back. And, in fact, I'm not sure how much I care which movie wins Best Picture.

So, join me all night long as we ignore the results from Hollywood, as Chris Rock either does or doesn't offend the sensibilities of Middle America. I won't be talking about who was dressed best (or worst) or who was most obsequious and ingratiating in their acceptance speech.

Hooray for Hollywood! And a bigger hooray for the off button on my remote control.

PS- Sean Hackbarth has a similar sentiment...

PPS- We like Andy because he's clever. And a trendsetter, too. Pretty soon, I predict that everyone will be liveblogging the ignora-blogging of other blogs. You do want to be one of the cool kids, don't you?

I will be at an Oscars party two blocks from the Kodak Theatre trying desperately to ignore the Oscars. Everyone else will be watching (Industry types) while I and a few other normal people drink beer and talk about things that matter. I'm late for the party, but that's probably a good thing considering what they say Chris Rock is up to.

My wife, who loves watching the Academy Awards, thinks that Chris Rock sucks, and the show has only been on 15 minutes. I'm upstairs and I can hear her flipping channels between the Awards and Resident Evil on SciFi. That tells me all that I need to know...

I don't know why they even bother having a host. He barely gets more time onstage than a multi-award presenter like Salma Hayek. Not that I'm complaining, they could just focus on Salma the whole night. "And Best Director goes to Clint Eastwood! (Camera stays on Salma, who smiles and claps)."

What are these "Oscars" about again?

Okay, sing it with me:

"Myyyyy balogna has a fiiiirst name, it's..."

"O S C A balogna has second name that's..."

"R U G E R..."

Oops, wrong lyrics. That's the Sturm, Ruger jingle.

"My revolver has a first name, it's S T U R M..."
