i’m baaaack, at least for now.

I haven’t posted in a few years, but tonight was a night of film for me, and I have some things to say:

1. Everyone — and I mean everyone — should find a way to see Mario’s Story. It is one of the most amazing documentaries I have ever seen, and Mario Rocha is indescribably inspiring. I had the great fortune of meeting him tonight and hearing him speak, and I have rarely been so impressed or touched by an individual’s story. Lest you think you’ve had it rough, think of Mario. Here’s the trailer for the documentary:

2. Kate Winslet and Sean Penn…both of you are FUCKING AMAZING. 

3. I have been sobbing since around the time that Heath Ledger’s family accepted his award. That was like an hour ago. I think I believe in hormones now.

4. The children of Slumdog could win Oscars for sheer adorableness. New category, Academy?

hey al, it’s about friggin’ time.

To celebrate Al Gore’s official endorsement of Barack, I will use the internet (his invention) for the rest of my life.

This man is truly the superstar of the Democratic Party. Think about it, before the big O, he was the last solid candidate the Democrats put up. He could have disappeared after his loss…okay, so he put on some weight and grew a beard…but instead he went on to write books, save the world and win an Oscar and a Nobel. Snaps to you, Al!

PS- Al Gore inventing the internet jokes will never get old.
