Darwinian ideology offers this final recessionary tip: “It is not the strongest species that survive, or the most intelligent, but the ones who are most responsive to change.” This precludes Darwinian business people from selecting as role models any animals pictured in the motivational posters sold by office suppliers. These include eagles and bears, which are respectively noble and smart, and collectively endangered. In reality there is only one adaptable über-being we must strive to emulate. It is the beetle.
The Oscar nominees were announced this morning, which means it’s time to get out your scorecards to see who’s winning in the eternal struggle between the MPAA vs. the Internet. (Hint: It’s not the MPAA.)
Academy members received screeners for at least 20 of the 26 films.
25 out of 26 films leaked in some form online, if you include camcorder recordings.
The average time from the time screeners are received by Academy members to its leak online is 6 days.
I got a lot on my feeble little mind and I’m going to share it:
1- I took tomorrow off. I’m sick of responsibility. I’m sick of work. Sometimes I feel like I’m way to young to feel like this. I’m way to young to look back and miss ‘old times’ but it is the fucking truth. I miss college and I miss hanging out with Sara D******.
2- The Itunes DB on my ipod is fux0red. Thank god for ubuntu. This bullshit blows my mind.
3- Observations I made tonight:
- I was the palest person at the ‘club’ tonight. Gays love tanning (apparently). - This kid was either eye-fucking me or is cross eyed. I can’t tell - Billie Ray Martin - Running Around Town…. this might be the funniest music video I’ve ever seen. - I like Mariah Carey as much as the next mo but there is no need for requesting songs from the Mariah Carey Christmas album in January. - Cher is garbage. I don’t see the draw.
4- Pittsburgh roads are terrible. I vote that we change the name to Pot Hole City.
5- Anya Marina has a new CD. It’s pretty fucking amazing.
6- I’m sooooo ready for spring. Winter has over stayed it’s welcome as far as I’m concerned.
