I read so many different blogs and newspapers and shrunk text media I am blue and about to faint. However, I wanted to say hi to you all and let you know I have a great post in Universo Anárquico about the days when I lived with Mommy and Daddy back in Rio de Janeiro. We used to listen to the radio and mute the TV for teh Oscars©.
Daddy's usual line was, "Zefa, look at him! He looks like he's my grandfather!" It was true. Daddy aged well and died prematurely. Mommy would tell him to shut up so she could listen to the broadcast. Then she would go off on a story on Liz Taylor's life. Mommy read a lot of Screenplay, Photoplay, all these older magazines pre-People.
Liz Taylor brought about how horrible Debby Reynold's fate had been, what a drunk Richard Burton was, and so on and so forth till Daddy would be exasperated and yell, "For crying out loud, Josephina!"
The use of her full name would intimidate her. Zefa, pronounced ZEH- fah, is her nickname in Brazil. Mommy won't be watching the Oscars tomorrow. She is in a convalescent home, losing a bit of herself at a time, slowly, slowly. Daddy looked good but passed at age 59. Mommy will be 88 this February 29. She's strong like an ox.
I was fed movies from an early age. I love the moving pictures. So, I came here today to tell you to visit the links in my post in Portuguese on stars and films. I tried very hard to choose original videos. I hope I succeeded.
Now, I must go faire do-do. Monday I will show you the latest moves in France. It's not about Carla Bruni or Sarko, or strikes. It's moves, the latest fad in the streets, literally. I still think we do it better. As Craig Ferguson would say, "I know, I know!" We fell in love with his show.
Hey, while blogging I watched Tina Fey's passionate speech about Hillary and womin-bitches. Go Tina Fey and go Hillary!
Remember to eat lite and avoid alcohol. Stay healthy.
My tips? Okay. The Cohen dudes for directing and screenplay, etc.in No Country for Old Men.There Will Be Blood for cinematography, editing, etc.
Javier Barden for best actor, the girl in Juno for best actress, and these are just my hunches.
See you back on Tuesday, I hope and forgive my typos, but keyboarding isn't easy when one has hydrocephalus.
