Skull Clutch

I was sitting around in my office today feeling pretty lazy and just thinking about stuff. Nothing important, just daydreaming. I started to think about the Oscar awards and how I would dress if I ever went. I know, but stranger things have popped into my head. I was wondering what I would wear when I walked down the blue carpet (aka the red carpet, but they changed it in honor of me!) Not sure what I would be doing there that would get me that privilege. Let’s say I was nominated for, I don’t know, costume design? no… screenplay? nah… Oh screw it, let’s just say best actress for the new goth interpretation of Bridget Jones’ Diary. Not that much of a stretch. I was a theater geek in high school after all. Angel and Spike would have to play the Colin Firth and Hugh Grant characters. I’m such a huge star that I can call the shots. Anyway, I’m a shoe-in for the Oscar, so there I would be walking the blue carpet. What to wear? Well, I know what purse I’d be carrying. This Skull Clutch from Butler and Wilson. So awesome. It sells for a hefty $755.00. Now, let’s say the movie was a critical success, but maybe not a box office success. I could then carry this more reasonable Skull Clutch from The Artful Bag. Still very cute, but a little cheaper at $328.00. Okay, so now let’s say the movie totally bombed and the only reason I got nominated in the first place was because I slept with all the voters. This little Skull Clutch might be the more economical choice at $24.00. Definitely the ugly choice, but still a skull clutch. Isn’t it nice to know the odd things that float around in my head? Now, if I could only figure out what to wear.

Horror at the Oscars

I finally got around to watching the rest of the Oscars. I was out that night and only caught the big awards at the end. I had heard that there was finally a tribute to horror movies and I was anxious to see it. Now that I have seen it I have some complaints. First off why were Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart presenting this? I mean, really, are they today’s only answer to modern horror movies? I liked the movies, but they are pretty tame in the horror department. Why not have the queen of scream, Jamie Leigh Curtis or Mr. Nightmare himself Robert Englund?  Heck, why not Bruce Campbell? I know they wanted to pull in the viewers by getting the Twilight kids, but use them for something else. There were much better choices for this presentation. My other big beef with this was the opening statement that the Oscars had not honored a horror movie since The Exorcist, 37 years ago. Really? What about the numerous awards that have been given out since to horror movies for visual effects, sound, makeup, costumes etc. Do these not count? Tell that to the winners. So, if these don’t count, what about all of the awards given to Silence of the Lambs? Best actor, actress, picture, director, screenplay were all awarded to that which is much more than what was awarded to The Exorcist. They only received awards for sound and screenplay. I guess you could argue that Silence of the Lambs was not a full on horror film, but the Academy included it in the montage, so that argument goes out the window. Putting all of that aside, I was thrilled to see the Academy giving horror movies their due. You can’t deny that the general public loves horror movies and it was about time that they paid homage to that.
