Are there enough people watching the Golden Globes to do a live blot? I'm watching as much as I can tolerate.
Several people seem to be on "journeys" tonight, like having quite a journey or, in some cases, seemingly in the midst of a journey even now.
I love jokes referring to our torturing nation. They might be fun if I could think of Cheney having to listen to them from behind bars. I refer to Homeland, Zero Dark Thirty, not to mention the more subtle purveyors of horrendous violent behavior. Yay America. Ha ha about the torture. But wait, they wouldn't be making these jokes if we were just now entering the sentencing phase of the trials of torturers and the lawyers and politicians who empowered them. Zero Dark Thirty wouldn't be so fucking funny, would it? And Obama would be riding a wave of popularity. Those who aren't connected with obscene wealthy and powerful imagine that it would be nice to be so popular. Not such a big deal for Obama. His needs are met in other ways.
See? Live blog about the Globes.
Affleck is great at looking permanently ironic. One of the most appealing looks in america today. Don't worry, I'm not really serious about anything. But I like him anyway.
