It feels as though I have abandoned blogosphere. I'm not visiting my favorite blogs daily, nor am I posting on a regular basis. My brain is full and focused on my deadline book. There aren't enough hours in the day and all that. I'm hoping this is temporary, because I really miss blogoshere and all the witty and delightful inhabitants.
Last night, I only watched an hour and a half of the Oscars. Two hours if you count 'red carpet arrivals'. And I only half-watched because I was trying to write.
Adore Jon Stewart, but otherwise the show was kind of boring anyway. Had a moment of insane envy when Kathrine Heigl announced--Why can't I look like that? And was bummed that I missed the performance of Marketa Irglova and her partner Glen Hansard. I recently saw ONCE and love, love, loved the music. Every. Single. Song. I own the soundtrack and it provides me with inspiration like you can't believe. So thrilled that these Indie writer/musicians won for Best Original Song--but I missed their shining moment! As well as Daniel Day-Lewis's. I'm so happy his work was recognized, because he is truly one of a kind.
Luckily sitcom/screenwriter Ken Levine offered his annual recap--as only Ken can do, so I don't feel like I missed out on too much. Check it out.
Okay. Back to my WIP. Meanwhile, here's a clip from ONCE and the song that one Best Original song. It rocks. So much heart. And what is art without heart?
