The first night of the Jeopardy - Greatest of All Time - tournament was exciting.. Anybody else watched it?
I didn't want to spoil anything last night, but it's over! I'm depressed. I was rooting for James, he just had bad luck. He got hardly any daily doubles. Brad got many of them and got every one wrong. I don't know what to do with myself anymore.

I'm stunned that he missed the final one last night. And yeah, Brad seemed to steal most of the daily doubles then squander them!

I agree that James was in control of his own destiny when he blew it. I guess he doesn't quite know everything. Also, his game plan was thrown off by Ken controlling the board.

I had noticed that ABC started running promos for The Goldbergs and whatever plays tonight, had me suspecting that it might be over after yesterday's episode.
It sure was fun TV though.. Regular jeopardy episodes won't be nearly as exciting by comparison.

I really wanted Brad to get a couple of wins to keep this thing going.
I think he let James get in his head, and that he wasn’t as good with the buzzer as the other two.

James was being a dick too. I’m glad Ken won.

Saw Between Me and My Mind, the Trey Anastasio/ Phish documentary on the plane. Really liked it. It had each of his family members in it, plus his friend dying of cancer. But the coolest part was that it showed his songwriting process, and how he worked with each band member and recording engineer to develop them. It also featured lots of neat equipment. That kind of stuff was completely missing from the Queen movie.

Mrs Scotch watched the Tarantino Hollywood movie, and thought it was trash. But Pitt just got an oscar for it.

Tarantino faithfully re-created – for real, not digitally – the way Hollywood Boulevard looked in 1969: the businesses, the signs, the storefronts, the automobiles.....and "Boss Radio" KHJ blaring from car radios.

How many more years before the Academy quits putting male actors and female actors into separate categories? And why was Tom Hanks nominated for best supporting actor instead of best actor for his starring role as Mr. Rogers?

Congratulations to Buzz, Woody, Bo Peep and Forky.

Cadillac is one of the sponsors of the Oscars broadcast. They have a new commercial that uses the music from the DJ Shadow/ Run the Jewels song Nobody Speak. I find it comical because the lyrics (which they don't use) are insanely profane. I guess they assume their potential customers will have no idea?

Yes, and that's precisely the problem. I saw most of the movie on her seatback screen, but without sound. It seemed to be 3 hours of eye-candy. Pitt's Hawaiian shirt always flowed gracefully over the perfectly vintage Champion tee. The car was the ultimate in cool. Tarantino couldn't get enough of Margo Robbie walking in that perfect-fitting skirt. But everyone I talked to said the storyline was pointless.

The first line is enough melt snowflakes heads.


I thought Hollywood was ok. QT has done much better in my book though.

Just watched JoJo Rabbit tonight. I loved it.

The people sitting next to us on the plane watched JoJo Rabbit and loved it. And they also had seen Hollywood and didn't like it. Somehow I think it's a generational thing.
