Corpse Bride came out on video today. You should rent it. Unless you feel like killing your girlfriend, because this movie shows just how much fun a singing, dancing dead body can be, especially if you have a snappy maggot sidekick. Trust me, however, dead women get a lot less fun after the first week, especially if you live in a temperate to tropical climate zone.
Also, the Oscar nominations were announced this morning. Perhaps I’ll write more about it later, but for now I’ll just pithily remark that I already saw the Golden Globes this year, and unlike the endless reruns of the MTV Movie Awards that fill up programming blocks for much of the summer months, I don’t need to watch them again.
