Bad news: I have a cold accompanied by an annoying cough.

Good news: I am not in a work of fiction. In fiction, characters with a cough tend to end up dead by the end of the story.

I ended up not watching the Oscars again this year because I frankly didn't have time. But I'm catching up on stuff that's happened (and Best Picture has apparently yet to be announced). The Social Network won the Oscar for best score... But I think that score was downright ugly most of the time. The movie was definitely good and the music worked within the movie, but to listen to it by itself? There are only a few selections that I'd want to listen to like that. Far better scores were written for Inception, The Ghost Writer, The King's Speech-- oh, I give up.

OMG... What the *beep* is wrong with people?! I can understand people wanting to keep guns in the home for protection (hopefully safely stored), but I don't see why there is any reason for people to tote guns around in public. I'll never understand it.

I've been listening to some John Williams lately, and I'm surprised just how good his score was in 1941. It's got a really great march theme, which is now one of my new favourites, right up there with the scherzo of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and the Duel of the Fates from The Phantom Menace.

I am currently alternating between watching the 1989 ATTWN movie under the new topic Cluedokid posted, and writing my essay. So far, I have many thoughts on it, but this is a thought I feel like sharing in this topic, because in that topic it would drive everything off-topic: It reminds me of my early writing skills from when I was eleven. If ATTWN had been my original idea, and I came up with the idea at the age of eleven and then decided to write it out, this is almost exactly how it would've turned out. Except the majority of the cast would have been played by my Barbie dolls, with a few of my MyScene dolls, and Lombard would be played by one of my rare Ken dolls. And then it would've turned out everyone wasn't actually dead.

Imagine a movie starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci, and directed by the legendary Martin Scorsese. If you've done that, you've just imagined The Irishman, a movie currently being planned which sounds like it would be awesome.

Remember that ecstatic moment when you first reached a posting milestone? Well, I just reached one on another forum- 1000 posts on a Golden Age mysteries forum- I'm currently the posts leader (and my posts, I'm somewhat proud to say, helped revive the forum somewhat).

I seem to have vanished. I'm rehearsing daily for a production of Rent.

OK, now I'm curious: 10,000 what?
