A German guy in a suit playing a medley of Genesis tunes to a quiet and respectful audience.

God, I love the Internet.

  3. You mean a lot of irrelevant, rich snobs are having some sort of faux-awards banquet on the night you’re learning how to play old Genesis songs on the piano, right?

    Priorities. You have them, and good ones. Thanks, I’m listening to this in the background while doing some other stuff.

  4. There was an awards show tonight?

    I went to a wedding tonight. It was done according to Sephardic usage. Ashkenazic usage includes reading the marriage contract during the ceremony. The Sephardic custom is to sing it.

  5. If you want to become a Sephardic songwriter, here’s the standard text (ie, standard since Talmudic times)

  6. The Oscars morphed into Soviet era Olympic gymnastics so slowly I barely noticed.

  7. And the envelope please.

    The award goes to whatever will best mesh with the Democratic illusion of the day.

    Today’s illusion will be Trump is a racist (same illusion as last year, and the year before that, and the decade before that, and for all of time up until two seconds after Lincoln, the first GOP President, signed the emancipation proclamation, according to the Democratic illusion of the day), so take that and add a healthy dollop of art is whatever the hell we say it is (similar to how the Ramones were a “great rock band”), give it a good jiggle in the film can jiggler and wallah, out pops Moonlight – the tinder story of a black boy discovering his true self via guidance provided by his junkie prostitute mother’s gay drug dealer.

    I think they’re out on a limb this time, hoping people don’t watch it.

  8. Carried away. Sorry. What I meant to say was time well spent Patterico.
