I tried to avoid this, but I still have an Oscar hangover so here’s an attempt to detox: I’m happy for you 36 Mafia and ashamed of all onlookers who, when the group won, wore an expression more appropriate for watching a doggie fashion show–as if to say, “How cute!” It’s not my favorite song, but it does make me want to dance. Still, it would be nice if there was a more well-rounded representation of black music in recent films.

Other equally bothersome yet less loaded talking points: #1. You’re killing us, George Clooney. You’re cute and played Booker on Roseanne, but you give women of America false hope. Would it kill you to just once have your photo taken with a date? We want stunning grandbabies! #2. What was going on during “In the Deep?” It was like a sci-fi movie trailer crashed into the set of Thriller–which is appropriate but painful. And finally, #3. I find it hilarious that it was the 78th Annual Oscars–meaning it was the 78th time we have honored people who act or whose work is somehow related to actors–and there are still folks who can’t get it together with the teleprompter. Put a computer chip in them or something.  

A funny, unrelated poem about hangovers to cleanse the pallet of my negativity.
