And it's tough to get behind something where no one has seen just about anything. They may as well all been Akira Kurosawa films..........or worse, Michael Bay. .....and all starring Drew Berrymore and Billy Bob Thornton.........or worse, Adam Sandler.
I did not win.
I am just putting it out there. Once again, it was the "Year of Mike". It's all very tiresome.
Mike won by one.
It's possible I could have tied - or he could have won by two, save for the fact that I forgot to include 'sound editing' in the ballot. Ooops. Still he won.
I will pay up and a bit more timely this year. Possibly.
As for the title image, oddly, I stole the original from Mike's husband, Peter, a few weeks back. I was going to make two versions, one with me being #1 and one with him in that same ranking. The original has the winner looking sullen and over at the joyous loser.
For the life of me, I could not find a picture of him facing that direction. So, I asked for Peter's assistance. I swear to g-d, this was the (hilarious) reply
Maybe he's a-scared of that whole Alfred Hitchcock silhouette thing he's got going on.
I kid of course. He doesn't know who Hitchcock is.
I watched a little bit of the show. It was different and yet not horrible. There was no one to play people off from their on-and-on-and-on-and-on speeches. I mean, there was a DJ, but everyone talked. And talked.
We watched maybe less than half, then 710 couldn't stand it anymore. Then I went to bed.

Mike axed me if we needed a real accountant......as if we could afford that.
But congrats to Mike......................again.
