There’s a dramatic series starring Cumming as a drag queen and I’ve never heard of it? Man, the things you miss when you don’t have cable (or live in England). I’m going to have to find a way to watch this.


Jessica Harlow’s great video of Diane Von Furstenberg who discusses being yourself and standing up for yourself. At one point she basically says that people are going to question or insult you anyway so you might as well be standing up for who you really are as opposed to acting like someone else and then having to fight to be some fake persona.


from the 12/17/11 episode of Saturday Night Live. Jimmy Fallon did a kick ass job. I didn’t stop laughing. Sometimes I find that they overdo Kristen Wiig’s characters but I really enjoyed the return of this one.

James Franco and Laurel Nakadate Raise the Dead-This is a piece from Interview about that unusual play/seance that James Franco recently put on NYC (which I had previously mentioned on twitter). I wish I could have been there.

my kind gift guide-from Alicia Silverstone. Some cute ideas for crafty folks.

Dating Advice For Jason Segel“When a woman is visiting your apartment for the first time and you’re feeling nervous about your puppet room, take all of the puppets out of the puppet room and put them in your bedroom with roses in their mouths.”-cracked me up.

David Cronenberg: It’s as if my old movies don’t exist-Salon’s interview with David Cronenberg about his new film A Dangerous Method. This movie sounds so up my alley,a Cronenberg film about Freud with a great cast.

All Work and No Pay: The Great Speedup-a very powerful article about Americans being overworked and how their patriotism/threat of losing their jobs is being used against them to perpetuate this. This is a good read for all of you online independent contractors. (It doesn’t change anything but it’s still interesting.)

NEGLECTED AWARDS
These awards are based on my own opinions
The Full Monty-Best Picture
Why didn’t I nominate it to begin with ? I hadn’t seen it yet because I unfortunately don’t live in a social mecca. Now I wish I had, so here’s there mention.
David Spade-Best TV Actor
Now what’s my excuse ? I watched this show when it first came out, but this year I could never figure out when it was on. It’s a good thing that they added it to Must See TV Thursday

TO VOTE: simply e-mail me at dlm@hhs.net with each number & the letter you choose. (ex.4 for song & c if you choose Deadweight) There is no need for you to include the category name or title/name you choose. Numbers are sufficient. Also submit your favorite movie if you choose. All will be included on this page when I list the winners. So if you wish to know the winners bookmark this page & return April 19th or later.

RULES:
1. Do not submit multiple entries.
2. For the Your Say section you can submit any movie from 1997 that you want except for a movie that is nominated for Best Picture.
3. Titanic-Why didn’t I nominate it or anyone in it ? I’m sick of the hype about it. Don’t say that I probably didn’t even see it, I saw it twice. Yes, I think that Leonardo DiCaprio is a talented, handsome actor, but was he robbed of an oscar ? No. Personally I’ve always enjoyed his movies, but if it takes Titanic for him to win you as a fan you’re no fan of his.
4. Contest ends April 17th & results will be posted April 19th.
