Ellen Page Is Still A Winner.

Our little Shadowcat really did deserve the big trophy tonight, and Juno was by far the Best Picture of 2008 for us.  Diablo Cody’s dialogue sounds like something directly out of our heads, and Ellen Page delivered the bitterly aware effervescence of our subcultural quirks with dizzying precision.  It is as if someone finally turned over the cool smooth rock that us punks have been chilling under while the bright lights of ditzy divas and high-brow violence blind the sheep to the existence of a real human voice.

I really think Juno is the best movie of the 21st Century, it gives me hope for the future of the species.  The fact that it included a phaseshifting member of the X-Men adds a bit of extra juice for me.  Diablo Cody’s acceptance speech for Best Original Script was correct, this actress really is “the superhuman Ellen Page”.  Congratulations to everyone involved in the production of this masterpiece.  We love you madly, with or without an Oscar.

Weekend in Heaven: Writer’s Flock.

I feel like a superhero myself sometimes.  The evil plans of Gravity and Inertia will not deny my mission; I will write today about the Infinates.  (I must get finished before the Oscars.)  Now, if I can only get this Ballot Manipulation Ring to make sure Kitty Pryde wins Best Actress.  Of course Best Picture would be nice too.  We shall see how strong these powers really are. 

Go Go Shadowcat!  Go Go Juno!
