This is just me telling you that I fully realize that it’s been four days since I posted anything.
And I’m not entirely sure why.
My mind has been elsewhere. I’ve been thinking about other writing projects.
Yesterday I almost wrote about the Oscars. But, I didn’t care enough.
And didn’t actually watch them.
I will say that THE DEPARTED is vastly overrated, I think.
Decent movie. Nothing really new for the genre. A number of good performances. One very good performance. (Nicholson, not Wahlberg.) Very good editing — which I NEVER notice. And a kick ass song on the soundtrack.
I think Marty definitely won based on his body of work and not this film. It’s not even in his top 5 best films.
I thought LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE was a better choice.
Glad AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH won. Al Gore IS a rock star.[This is where Peter considered going on a rant amount the American electoral process.]
I also happened to watch all three of those films this weekend on DVD.
Last night, before bed, I decided that I wanted to write a blog post this morning. So, I told my subconscious to work on something over night.
I woke up this morning with… no ideas.
My 12th grade math teacher told us that he often solved problems in his sleep. So, I figured it could work for me too. Apparently I did it wrong.
Of course, he’s the same guy that said “up yours with a wire brush!” to a student. And, as he put his key in the classroom lock, muttered, “I could tell it was the wrong hole by the way she wiggled.”
Maybe I shouldn’t put too much stock in his advice.
