This years Oscars; a parade of liberal pretentious adulation of a black and white silent movie in the year 2012.

The Emperor's New Clothes on cocaine.

Rara, don't know if you've heard, but everybody hates Chris. Now, Billy, on the other hand, we all love him. He even has a sparkling wine named after him. The Duke & Spencer have no chance. Gable is gonna win everything.

If it proves to be a quiet night, I may supplement by furnace blower with it.

I think Sean Penn won an Oscar..for Fast Times at Ridgemont High. With the immortal words, "dude"...and "Mr. Hand"...

Tonight is the real annual border war, every year my wife and daughters want to watch the Oscars and my son and I don't. It is an epic struggle over the remote. Thanks for mention Sean Penn, I just puked, my Spring diet is off to a good start. If I start eating I'll come back later to see of someone mentioned Madonna

Billy Crystal is not funny. If you want funny, bring back Chris Rock, except Sean Penn got mad at him because he made a funny joke about Jude Law and Sean Penn has no sense of humor unless the joke is about the destruction of America.

I wonder if Sean Penn knows that "Hugo" is not about Chavez.

The Spackle Channel? I like that. I may have to ask my carrier about that. I used to get calls because of my old fashion plaster skills. Have trowel. Will travel.

Guess I can dig out my (very) old cassettes of "Router Workshop".

Let's see, were those in VHS or Betamax . . . ?

The Spackle Channel is doing a 24 hour marathon of "Who Wants to Spackle a Duck?" I'll be watching that.

Sure! Haven't seen any of the movies, but Billy Crystal is funny, so will watch for a while. And since none of youse manly fellows iz watching, I can steal the jokes & use 'em on OTS.

I'll probably be too exhausted after the Kansas Music Hall of Fame show at Liberty Hall this afternoon. A Cole Tuckey reunion!!

No. Seeing that many Obama Idolizing Elites at one time like that would give me a severe migraine.

. . speaking of duct tape . . . Found two rolls of Woodland Camo tape while sorting through the reloading supplies yesterday. Hadn't seen that since we used it to patch the holes in my buddy's jon boat after some clown shot it full of .22 holes.

Need to put it in my Zombie Survival Kit . . .

Here is an upbeat "Oscar" which we listen to in West Lawrence:

Hmm..A final observance. The one who replied "“No, but if I did, it’d be to root for John Wayne. ” may be just telling tales about his plan to watch the "Oscars" as "Duke" - John Wayne has been dead for over 30 years I think. Was a good man.

I think my point is that people from Oskaloosa should not try to answer complicated questions. - Odeo

Hey LJW, how come you asked for suggestions for the OTS and then don't use any of them?

Am working on a film that may be an "Oscar" - ergo, Academ(e) Award winner next year.

However, as I was trying to get it done before May - initial time line for Israel to pull the trigger against Iran- am thinking that my time line has been severely pushed up and limited. Am now thinking I may just have less than 24 hrs. Demmitt!! - Odeo

Nope. Not into Self-Promotional stuff like that. I did catch the first part of the "Grammy's" since Dim Whit-ney took a bath the day before.......

Curious, though...from one response...“Yes, but I haven’t watched any of the movies.”....???

WTF??? - Odeo

Nope, no relevance, and it will not be broadcast on the radio.
