Time Warner Cable Is Determined To Sabotage My Goservention

In the last month, I have not watched any Ryan Gosling movies, even though one night, “The Notebook” and “Blue Valentine” were on at the same time. I haven’t clicked on any links with his name in the headline. Save for my Goservention update posts — and this one, which Julie gave me permission to…

Yep, This Sums Up Last Night’s Oscars Pretty Perfectly

As this was the “young and hip!” Academy Awards, host James Franco took advantage of that new fangled thingy called the internet and posted photos online as the event was happening. My personal fave of his photos was this one, featuring an insanely baked looking Franco, a deer-in-headlights Oprah, and a so-perky-we-could-slap-her Anne Hathaway. [Who
