Keep Your Head

Posted by Mick under Film, Personal (No Respond)

I just finished a night of not watching the Academy Awards.  Part of me used to care, most of me doesn’t care anymore.  Until the point I’m nominated for one.  Then, I’ll care.
If I was nominated for an Oscar, I could hang out with Neil Gaimen at the Governor’s Ball.  I would ask him about [...]

So happy it’s sappy

Posted by Mick under Personal (No Respond)

The kids couldn’t hurt Jack,
They tried, tried, tried.
They dropped things on his back,
They lied, lied, lied, lied, lied.

But they couldn’t stop Jack, or the waters lapping
And they couldn’t prevent Jack from being happy.
That’s a reminder – no one can stop you from being happy.  People can mistreat you, they can lie to you, they can [...]

Tony Clifton lives!

How do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
How do you find a word that means Maria?
A flibbertijibbet! A will-o’-the wisp! A clown!
That song, or at least the chorus to that song, has been stuck in my head for many, many years.  It’s not a constant thing, [...]

Snow Day

Posted by Mick under Personal (No Respond)

This would appear to be a new blog entry, but it isn’t.  I actually wrote this on Feb 23rd, and I forgot to post it.  I thought I had posted it, but no, I did not post it.  So while it may have appeared that I missed a day of blogging, I technically did not [...]

Tonight’s the Night

Posted by Mick under Film, Personal (No Respond)

I’m sneaking in an early blog today, because my night will be full.  Actually, the entire week will be full.  There’s something every night this week, if you count work on Wednesday as “something”.  I certainly count it as something, just not something good.
Today, I’m at my day job, but I’m not really teaching.  I’m [...]

That thing I do

Posted by Mick under Mastodon Dethklok, Personal, Scripts (No Respond)

It’s been a good day.  It’s been a real good day.
I slept late.  When I finally roused myself from bed, I was greeted by a pot of coffee and a bowl of “piggies”, Tara’s term for little smoked sausages wrapped in pieces of crescent roll, which is then baked to golden brown perfection.  They are [...]

In which Cop Out is discussed

Posted by Mick under Film, Personal (No Respond)

The previous time I walked through the living room, the Olympics were on.  I just went to refill my tea (an Earl Grey, because I’m a pimp like that), and I noticed that Jeopardy is on.  I recall this from last week as well.  It seems that nothing can stop the onslaught of the Olympics [...]

It’s a “laser”

Posted by Mick under Books, Film, Personal (No Respond)

I’m going to get a subscription to Time magazine.
It’s not as expensive as you think.  56 issues a year, at a cover price around $4.50, that’s like $252.  But now, for a limited time only (a limited time to get Time) I could have it delivered to my mailbox for $20.  They’ll even throw in [...]

Why does the devil have all the good music?

Posted by Mick under Personal (No Respond)

There are so many things I could talk about today.  Stuff that happened today, like the controversy over red-band trailers online (I’m for red-band trailers online, I’m against concerned parents who bitch).  Stuff that happened earlier in the week that I didn’t get a chance to talk about (and won’t mention here because then I’ll [...]

Won’t get fooled again

Posted by Mick under Personal (No Respond)

Right now, I’m supposed to be working on my script.  And I am, I really am.  In a weird sort of way.
I’m having a hard time getting started, but I’m almost there.  I couldn’t figure out what to do, nothing was working, so I took a field trip to the living room and watched some [...]
