Anybody going to watch the Oscars on Sunday? Really hope it is all about entertainment and nothing more or less than that.
I will check out who won though when it's over. I still can't believe Johnny Depp did not get nominated a year ago for Black Mass. I mean what the hell? Thats when I lost interest. I often see some film or performance and it gets snubbed.
I know this year they will probably give most of the awards to "Manchester by the Sea" anyway.
LeBron on fire!! 48th triple-double of his career!
Would rather give MVP to little Isaiah Thomas. Celtics are second in the east too while the Thunder are 7th in the West.
And yeah the Cavs will be better later. Keep an eye on the Raptors though too since the Celtics struggle with them as well. Had Celtics/Raptors on last night and the C's were up by 17 at one point but still ended up losing the game.
There was a Celtics game last week I didn't see where they played the Bulls and everyone went nuts on how jobbed the Celtics got at the end of the game. Bulls are 7th in the east I just seen, so Boston or Cleveland may get them in the first round of the playoffs.
Cleveland would be fine, but this is why I worry about Boston.

I hope this works out for the Lakers but I am a little worried.
I will cheer against the lakers with my life. Basketball is better without them and the Celtics. It's time for Embiid and Simmons soon.
At this rate, I would trust LeBron James more as a GM than Magic, after reading all those tweets....and LeBron just wants a star player here and there to help him out on the Cavs.
Not really sure what is going on right now but there are tons of trade rumors swirling around the Lakers.
And if you were wondering btw about that Spurs forum I used to show you, it's gone. Closed down. I remember them saying a while ago that they had to maybe close it due to a lack of money.
Looks like that forum is back, I was wrong.
I was going there all week and nothing came up but it seems it's back. I think someone else bought the site but sometimes the site goes down and you get some error page.
Thanks for the kind words. Yeah I got kicked down but managed to get back up so it's all good.
I feel fortunate not to have more severe issues that could have been but we play the cards we are dealt.
No problem CC1. Yeah, there's always a period of adjustment after an event like that with diet, exercise, & a new approach to life in general.
I admire your positive outlook/perspective. I hope you had a ton of family & friends around you for moral support & humor if nothing else.
Cool. Just remember to take it easy, pace yourself, & get back to your routine slowly & gradually. Rome wasn't built in a day & recovery takes time.

"1965- Malcolm X is assassinated"
This fateful day still infuriates me to this day. Malcolm had a brilliant mind, came full circle from "The Chickens have come home to roost" to the Civil Rights Movement needs people of every race, gender, & creed to promote lasting change for the better.
I hold Malcolm in higher esteem than I do Martin Luther King Jr. today actually.
Alright, which one of yall did this?
Kurt Cobain would have been 50 years old today.
I mean if you didn't feel old enough already.
Wait, no Weird Al "Smells Like Teen Spirit" spoof with marbles in Kurt Cobain's mouth?
I love that part because it always reminded of Tom Brokaw on NBC Nightly News since to me, both Kurt & Tom always sounded like they had marbles in the mouth during the grunge era & during TV broadcasts before CNN & news 24/7 changed journalism forever.
Okay, my bad. You posted Weird Al RR7. Nicely done. Pearl Jam has marble vocal problems too. LOL!

Some duets that I have always liked...
Ha! I just realized RR7's status updates was about duets & I totally diss-ed Tom Petty. Oops! That wasn't by design. I just love Stevie probably on a weird, subconscious level I have never gotten a handle on yet....as a singer & musician...Not what you're thinking. I know; I know. Shut up while you're ahead or at least not that far behind right?
Well, I think Sigmund Freud did say there are no accidents & probably playwright William Shakespeare will co-sign that theory as well.
Okay, to make up for my lack of duet awareness snafu, I will leave you with this Gwyneth Paltrow & Huey Lewis song "Cruising Together" from the move 'Duets.' The video quality is poor, but the tune is catchy...
Plus, I like that Huey Lewis said once that having a top 10 or top 20 hit & being popular at the time doesn't mean you're a good band just that you happen to catch lightning in a bottle that resonated with fans on a large scale.
Unbelievable weather for February
