Fun with Craigslist.

Cue Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher” as I read further…


Oh. Damn.

Oscar picks update

Let’s just say I’m glad I didn’t actually put money on these.

Well, I did make most of the picks hastily, and without really thinking…

Anyway, of my 24 predictions, 8 were correct:

attaboy, Aaron!

Best Picture (“The King’s Speech”)
Actor in a Leading Role (Colin Firth)
Actor in a Supporting Role (Christian Bale)
Animated Feature Film (“Toy Story 3”)
Music – Original Score (“The Social Network” – Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross)
Short fim – live action (“God of Love”)
Sound mixing (“Inception”)
Writing – adapted screenplay (Aaron Sorkin, “The Social Network”)

Better luck next year, eh?
