A.S. Hamra’s Oscar round-up. Some excerpts:

“David Fincher solved a problem no director has ever been able to solve before: how to make Cambridge, Massachusetts, look glamorous.”

“This cold and stylized yet oh-so-warm movie seems like it is going to show us something really interesting about the difference between sound and image, then becomes a parable about how, whoever we are, colonial or king, we have to turn our loose upper palates into stiff upper lips and learn not to stutter so we can face the coming global threat (Nazis).”

How many helicopter shots of Charlestown, Massachusetts, can one film hold? Was The Town directed by Google Maps?

Is now really the time for a comforting reunion set in a wintry afterlife?

That’s all I’ll be eating after a very decadent trip to L.A.

I believe I drank over 100 ounces of beer.

Is this a good time to announce my new blog?

It has to do with two of the subjects mentioned above.

There’s nothing there yet, so I’ll make you wait a little longer.

Scottish Deerhound, Hickory. Winner of Westminster!

The AKC on the eyes of a Scottish Deerhound:

Eyes
Should be dark–generally dark brown, brown or hazel. A very light eye is not liked. The eye should be moderately full, with a soft look in repose, but a keen, far away look when the Deerhound is roused.

Look up your favorite breed at the American Kennel Club website. There’s gold to be found on every page.
