Wait - next time would be Public Enemies wouldn't it. OK - now we have a baseline, thirteen. Let's see if Public Enemies can hit twenty. I see Actress and Supporting Actor were missed, I think we can fill those in. Foreign film will be a problem but maybe Marion Cotillard spoke a little French? Sound Editing and Sound Mixing just sounds like the sound guys union is trying to get extra awards for the same thing.
WHERE is Best Supporting Director? If Sound can have two Oscars you have to think Directors can have two. I'm on it. I'll fling some emails off. Remember - I'm the guy that got Onion Bagles back in Roundy Stores.
I HOPE you all picked up the newest Columbus Pioneer. 136% more advertising, well done chaps!! Although take out that big one from Savanna Oaks and it's only a 76% increase. What is Savanna Oaks anyway.
Also - everyone should go to Nelson's Crossing for their fish fry (10 miles south of Columbus on Berlin road Deansville . . . .where the hell is Deansville, are they just making these towns up?).
I do not know WHY this made me smile . . . awkwardly. I don't even know what it is.
I'm a little slow today - Home Brew Club last night. geez! I don't know what it is but every Friday after Home Brew Club I'm feeling tired and fuzzy.
American Amber seems to be a hit and NOT just for the label. We had 14 people and I swear each person brought a 6-pack of home brew and there was nothing left.
I expect a full report from the Sweeny Todd group tomorrow (pictures??)
OH -speaking of pictures. Last night I was minding my own buisness and out of the corner of my ear heard a hoo hoo. What was that??? I listen hoo hoo. There it was again. I go from window to window listening. hoo hoo. I go onto the snow covered deck and triangulate my ears and it's coming from our neighbors roof. It's very dark but I can just make out a figure on the roof.
I run inside, grab my camera and big flash unit, step outside and try to get a photo. The owl is talking to another one on the otherside of the fairway in a large tree. Almost sounds like an echo.
hoo-hoo hoooooo hoo-hoo
The problem was it was just too dark to focus. All I could do was aim at an area and shoot. I have a focusing plan for next time. It is one BIG owl. I have one real fuzzy shot where he/she is looking right at me with glowing eyes. I'm thinking he is at least 2 feet tall in this shot.
I believe this is a Great Horned Owl.
This is nesting season and male and female will hoot at each other.
Have a good and warm weekend
HA - addendum - after reading the Columbus Pioneer my question about WHAT Savanna Oaks is is actually answered. . . . . sort of creepy how that happened.
