    Congratulations no doubt, and it is lovely to see this film get all its recognition, and the best studio in town…by far in the indie space…continue to grow and flourish and get the big prize after being so close.
    But, lets not get so carried away on the people who are decent…granted, it is Hollywood and Im sure there are much worse culprits lurking around the studio lots. I dont consider someone who cheats on their spouse, and others that cross other moral/behavioral/professional lines to be good and decent.
    Maybe in Hollywood, its all the gradations of how you classify good and decent.
    Always enjoy your work.

  2. It was, as most parties are, too loud, and there were too many tight t-shirted aspiring actresses wandering around, looking to hand anyone they could encourage a drink.
    Dude, no such thing as any of the things you mentioned here.

    BTW: Tonight, I asked my son if he or any of his friends had gone to see Fired Up this past weekend. He had no idea what I was talking about. Really. Now, George watches a lot of sports-oriented TV. So do his buddies. Did someone drop the ball here, or what?

    DOES RAINN WILSON GET SQUACK?
    GIVE ME ANOTHER REASON TO HANG MYSELF IN MY SHOWER LIKE DAVID KEITH IN AN OFFICER AND A GENTLMAN.
    Someone fucking DARE me to do it.
    FUCKING DARE ME, bitch.
    DARE ME.
    I FUCKING HATE MYSELF even more than I hate YOU, which is nearly impossible.
    Oh, wait, you’re not FAMOUS EITHER?
    Then what the FUCK do YOU have to be HAPPY about?
    LIFE IS BULLSHIT. FRIENDS ARE BULLSHIT. PEOPLE ARE BULLSHIT. FAMILY IS WHATEVER.
    Only thing that matters in this world =
    1. PUSSY.
    2. MONEY.
    And the PUSSY DOESN’T COUNT unless the chick is FAMOUS and SUPER FUCKING HOT. Otherwise you’re just PRETENDING you’re fucking happy.
    FUCKING SUCKS FUCKING SUCKS NOT BEING FAMOUS.
