Post Oscar Round-Up Podcast

Howdy Folks,

The Oscars just ended and everyone creamed their collective jeans over the exact stuff we thought they would in predictable Academy Award fashion. The lack of surprises these days are pretty upsetting, but yet we still crawl back for more. I feel like watching the Oscars is a lot like having one of those ex's that you know is bad news but you can't say no because..."you know what...maybe this time will be different". Well guess what? It's not. You always end up with a black eye or burning when you pee. Just like the oscars.

In this week's podcast we take a look at the Oscars that never were. Hearing music from films that probably should have gotten more recognition than they did, or films that totally got robbed by some other movie that you really have to strain to remember. We also dicussed our primal rage and anger thoughts on this years Award Ceremony. It's not all bad folks, but you don't tune in to hear us sweetheart back and forth about things that make us smile...do you? Didn't think so.

So, I'm not going to type it all out, cause unless you live in an underground bunker deep below the earths crust beneath the Atlantic ocean, you'd know how it went. For those of you that don't know, here's a little morse code for you. ( -.- .- - .... .-. -.-- -. / -... .. --. . .-.. --- .-- / ... ..- -.-. -.- ... / -- -.-- / -... ..- - - )
