The following is a test of the emergency broadcast system.

Although this article below is not the greatest blog I have written, but it was an experimental in my blog. I am so deeply satisfied with the result, it is almost like I have just consumed a large Italian feast all to my own. There were so many people who won tonight that truly deserved to win: Alan Arkin, William Monnahan, Marty Scorsese, Thelma Schoonmaker, The Departed, and An Inconvenient Truth. This feels a much like my Christmas’s, I told my parents what I want. So come Christmas morning, receiving presents are much like the Academy giving the award who it actually should go to. This was really a dream year for me. I feel like I am finally starting to think similar to the academy and more importantly feeling like I am starting to see enough films. So I can appreciate who everyone is and what they have contributed to the cause. Despite these good feelings, I know that, in fact, I only truly know 1/5th of what is out there in respect to film. For example tonight they honored Ennio Morricone, he has scored over 400 films. That is a huge achievement in respects to scores. Now I think of what he scored and how many of them have I seen? Honestly, about 8 of them and only a few I can name on the spot. There is a lot I still want to see, not to mention the ones that I don’t even know what I want to see them or new ways to see them.

The Academy Awards gave me stronger feelings that The Departed is a brilliant film. Although an Oscar has never merited the sole requirement of a great film. Several Scorsese movies are this way Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, Casino and Mean Streets. But there have been some truly unforgettable films that have the merit of Best Picture, example Silence of the Lambs, American Beauty, Platoon, Godfather Part I AND II, and Deer Hunter. So, in tribute to the movie and the man, I am watching The Depaarted now.

Well goodnight, and good luck.
