Flight of the Conchords' Bret McKenzie takes home Oscar gold

With only two entrants, original song might not have been the most competitive category at last night's (2/26) 84th Annual Academy Awards, but Bret McKenzie made the most of it.

The singer/actor and one half of musical comedy duo Flight of the Conchords took home the Oscar for his song "Man or Muppet" from "The Muppets," beating out the only other contender, "Real in Rio" from "Rio".

The New Zealander, who has also appeared in two of the three films of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and will also appear in "Rings" director Peter Jackson's upcoming "The Hobbit," thanked late Muppets creator Jim Henson for creating a "magical world". "It's a true honor to work in the shadows of such legends," he said.

Sandler sets Razzie record: 11 worst-movie noms

SANTA MONICA, Calif.—When Adam Sandler's bad, he's really bad, according to voters for the Razzies, an Academy Awards spoof that singles out the worst movies of the year.

Sandler received a record 11 nominations Saturday for the Razzies as star, producer or writer on three 2011 movies -- "Jack and Jill," "Just Go with It" and "Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star."

Sandler's nominations include worst actor for both "Jack and Jill" and "Just Go with It" -- and worst actress for "Jack and Jill," in which he plays a family man and his own twin sister.

Sandler also had two nominations as worst screen couple opposite Jennifer Aniston or Brooklyn Decker in "Just Go with It" and opposite Katie Holmes, Al Pacino or himself in "Jack and Jill."

As a producer, Sandler was credited with worst-picture and worst prequel, remake, rip-off or sequel nominations for both "Bucky Larson" and "Jack and Jill." He also shared in worst-screenplay nominations as a writer on both movies, and a worst-ensemble nomination for "Jack and Jill."

Democratic governors almost giddy on Obama reelection prospects (Fox News)

Democratic enthusiasm and Republican apprehension were both on display at the winter meeting of the National Governor's Association, an annual four-day conference where states' top executives gather to discuss policy and trade ideas on best practices but where politics is always close to the surface.

In interviews, many Democratic governors seemed almost giddy about Obama's chances of winning a second term.


"These Republicans that are running for president, they're so depressing. Cheer up!" Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin said after Democratic governors left a White House meeting with Obama. "We've got some good news: a great president creating jobs, and governors who are seeing revenues rebound."


"In a purple state people want to see results and they also want to see a level of collaboration and teamwork. I think he is going to win Colorado," the state's governor, John Hickenlooper, said.


"I don't know anybody who thinks if you started out to design a good process to pick a president you'd choose exactly what we have now," said Indiana Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels, a former White House budget director who explored a presidential candidacy but ultimately decided against a run.

Any Jeep Cherokee owners here?

Experiences with them? Good vehicle?

They seem to be and there are some older models on craigslist that are remarkably affordable.

After reading this article
http://editorial.autos.msn.com/10-best-vehicles-for-the-end-of-the-world?icid=autos_0248

I decided to look them up. No I am not worried about the apocalypse or zombies (read the article) but I would like a dependable good vehicle - my Volvo is near its end I suspect.
