Sorry about the lack of updates this week, you guys. Call it post-holiday inertia. But until I come back with an entry proper, here's a handful of thoughts:
-- Jon Stewart as Oscar host is a phenomenal idea, especially in a year with so many topical films in contention.
-- Vince Young played a phenomenal college football game in the Rose Bowl. That said, he is not a very good pro prospect. Certainly not a top 5 draft pick. Dude throws sidearm, not terribly strongly, and while he's got the jets, half the time he's just shuffling around behind his O-line until a hole opens up. No way he gets that kind of time in an NFL backfield. Yet watch the hype machine go on this guy.
-- Project Runway season 2? Living up to the season 1 hype. Nicky Hilton notwithstanding.
-- American Idol season 5 on Television Without Pity: Now with 100% more me!
