You Know What?

I have never in my life had even a glimmer of a trace of a faint interest in the Oscars.

Just in case you were wondering.

If you’re going to have a blog, you may as well engage in the occasional trivial outburst of spleen. I’ve seen several too many stories about the Oscars today.

Actually–to make this slightly more substantive–I realized not long ago that I fundamentally don’t care much about movies. I mean, I watch them, and enjoy many of them, and even regard a few of them as good art. But I don’t care about them. If I were told tonight that I could never see another one, it wouldn’t bother me that much, not much more than giving up, say, spaghetti. Nothing against spaghetti, but it’s nothing I can’t pretty easily live without. And a lot less than giving up, say, coffee.

But if I were told that I could never read another book, or listen to music–well, that would be sort of a half-death.
