I didn't see "We saw your boobs."

That was the point in the Oscars show when I shut off the TV and took up my Kindle to do some reading. For me, it was just another in a lame series of attempts at humor at the Academy Awards shows.

Lameness? The Oscars haz it.

So, Oscar advertisers: I didn't see your ads. Misogyny doesn't sell. Write that down.

But really, it was a good book.

3. Why did you tune in in the first place?

Sounds like you were trying to piss yourself off specifically so that you'd have something to complain about.

Thanks for your reply.

7. I believe it was at the very beginning of the show

The whole thing was such a bore, I only watched a bit I had recorded. It still seemed interminable.

8. I Didn't Pay Attention To The "Boobs" Song......


...because I was too distracted by the dress Anne Hathaway was wearing. By the time she won her Oscar, the camera crews were confining their shots to her face and upper shoulders, to avoid a problem---or should I say, a couple of problems.....

25. I liked the dress...

wasn't crazy about on her though. I think she's absolutely gorgeous, and not in that fake hollywood way. She's a natural beauty.

9. I thought Jennifer Lawrence looked like a walking Crab Rangoon

Yes it was a stylish dress, and obviously a little bit dangerous.

But no, I'm not seeing what your problem is with the song. I think he was trying to satirize the frat-boy demographic.

19. Given the ratio of male frontal to female frontal in film,

that would probably be a much shorter song. Never understood that discrepancy.

As for "We Saw Your Boobs," I saw it and thought it was pretty funny. I'm a pretty staunch SMF fan though. The guy is really talented in so many ways. A modern day Rich Little voice master that can sing remarkably well.

I heard an interview with him on NPR where he plugged his album "Music is Better Than Words." http://www.amazon.com/Music-Is-Better-Than-Words/dp/B004T5IW2K

The guy is certainly rough around the edges with his comedy, but he's not the first edgy comic, nor will he be the last.

As a matter of fact, I have never watched any of those type of award shows. Just don't care.

Zombies! Then I watched The Talking Dead. Then I watched L&O Criminal Intent. Oscars? Who cares? It's like the Superbowl for me.
