Happy Friday Where It Is 60 Degrees in Pittsburgh in the Middle of February
That’s always a good Friday.
We should have a giveaway today, yes?
I remember a time when I loved watching the Oscars because I would have seen almost all of the movies up for the major awards. Braveheart. Dances With Wolves. Forrest Gump. Glitter.
Anyway, I remember Bryan Adams singing on several Oscar telecasts back in the dark ages when I watched the Oscars by candlelight while ma churned the butter and pa shot stray vermin outside the cabin.
These days, with my DVR-attitude that I don’t watch commercials, I never even know what movies are released until they show up in the Red Box and then I’m all, “Hey. Lookit! There’s a new Thomas the Tank Engine movie!”
This year, there are ten nominees for best picture. I have seen … one. I will give you three guesses as to which one it is. I’ll give you a hint. Ready? Mr. Tortilla Head.
Another hint: Big Giant Scary Dead-Eyed Baby Who Gives Me Nightmares
Seriously. That baby. Heebie Jeebie City, the capital of Bejeezus.
Whether or not you love seeing movies in theaters, I bet you love enjoying delicious food and cocktails while surrounded by a who’s who of Pittsburghers dressed in their finest at the Pittsburgh Film Office’s Oscar event, which supports the film office which brings awesome movies to Pittsburgh, which gives you and I opportunities to see Jake Gyllenhaal running through downtown Pittsburgh without his shirt on.

I went last year and it is an awesome good time and a great way to rub elbows with the local film industry peeps.
To enter, leave a comment. One comment per valid email address, and so you have something to say, tell me the WORST movie you ever saw.
Mine? You might think I’d say Mega Python vs. Gatoroid, but I love that campy shit. No, the worst movie for me was easily The Object of my Affection. The only time ever I walked out of a theater because I was bored out of my mind.
Tell me yours and good luck! You have until Monday at 4:00 p.m. at which time Random.org will pick the winning comment number. If your comment goes to spam, no worries. I’ll fish them out periodically.
