Random Thoughts with Karim Amir
Oh, yeah, the Oscars...
So, I won the Oscar pool at the party we attended. The prize for my prognostication skills? 10 free passes at the local arthouse theater. Awesome!
Random Oscar Thoughts:
- Can't believe Danny Boyle is an Oscar-winning director.
- The Independent Spirit Awards Joaquin Phoenix skit > Oscars Joaquin Phoenix skit
- I like Hugh Jackman much more as a song and dance guy.
- Michael Shannon is kind of hot in a sinister sort of way.
Cool Website Random Thought:
"Greg Rutter's Definitive List of The 99 Things You Should Have Already Experienced On The Internet Unless You're a Loser or Old or Something."
I have no idea who Greg Rutter is, but he's assembled quite the list of Internet memes. Of course, there's Spaghetti Cat (yay!), Rick Roll, Leave Britney Alone, the chipmunk, Numa Numa, etc. My other half was spastic with laughter after watching #66. Oh, for the love of God, don't click on the NSFW links at the bottom of the page.
Random Songs I've Listened to Recently:
Bourgeois Tagg, "Mutual Surrender"
A late 80's mixtape selection, I distinctly remember this song on an episode of "21 Jump Street."
Big Audio Dynamite, "The Bottom Line" (embedding disabled by request, yada yada...)
Oh, yes, another installment of "I saw this first on Night Flight." I am posting this today for these lyrics that ring true almost 25 years later:
"Dance to the tune of economic declineMick Jones, you're clairvoyant.
Is when you do the Bottom Line
Nagging questions always remain
'Why did it happen?' and 'Who was to blame?'"
