Oscar Non-Blog-Along Blog

No one really cares about those who blog-along with award shows. We can all watch TV just fine without the unnecessary involvement of Darling Nikki, CNN, MTV or even the The Newark Star-Ledger. I know what I just saw. I don't need you to tell me again.

The truth is blog-alongers are simply tech-capable versions of the annoying person who inevitably sits behind you at the movies. You know the one. She took Intro to Film History during summer school and now feels compelled to explain (whether you want to hear it or not) her thoughts on the auteurism of Vittorio De Sica. Or perhaps blog-alongers are more like the person who sat in the front row of Psych 101 (with 500 of your closest friends) and repeatedly interrupts with questions about the Super Ego. Either way, they're annoying. And despite your best efforts to ignore them, they just don't go away. Ever.

This is precisely why I have nothing to say about the Oscars. I am not, nor will I ever be that kind of person.............Ok, I do have one thing to say. But that's it. I promise. I just saw the opening number with Neil Patrick Harris. I couldn't help notice a few similarities between the NPH performance and a certain classic movie scene. See if you feel the same way.
