    Question - Does anyone know of a good program for the PC that converts .avi files and what not to DVDs that isn't impossible to figure out how to burn subtitles?

    The programs I've tried are all impossible.

    5/03 - Lightning Bolt/Liturgy - Echoplex
    5/05 - Thee Oh Sees - The Smell

    5/14 - Melody's Echo Chamber - Roxy (?)

    Tonight I watched Louis Malle's Elevator to the Gallows. Absolute perfection. An all-time great film, this one.

    We are at an Oscars party drinking Sofia Coppola wine in a can and eating popcorn cookies. Later there will be Blue Velvet cupcakes!

    The soundtrack is so great as well. I hope we get a Criterion Blu upgrade soon!

    In retrospect after the Oscars:

    Having now seen Argo... wow, that was a pretty mediocre-good film to be making Best Picture. Goes to show one thing that Hollywood loves above all else is patting itself on the back. If you just made a movie about how a mildly retarded guy in cooperation with MGM Studios brought The Holocaust to an end, you'd win awards up and down the fucking aisle.

    Hey, look, the whole world's surprised that Seth McFarlane isn't fucking funny. Thanks for finally catching up to Always, dickheads.

    I also went back and rewatched Django. Goddammit that is a good movie although I turn away during a couple of scenes just because it's a bit rough to endure. The whole 70s blacksploitation presentation was just awesome. Django and King's theme songs are both hilarious and pretty good music. The end of it still falls off a bit but fuck it, the rest of it is such a relieving change of pace compared to other Westerns.

    Hmm... that's an interesting point. Yeah, it kinda is. Both great, but definitely two distinctly opposite perspectives on how to do the West.

    Exactly. Both really fights with the standard approach to a Western, both is very focused on revenge, and both features a character you wouldn't initially expect to act the way they ultimately do, but they approach it such a different sort of way. And I love both films.

    Unforgiven is vastly superior to Django on just about every level I think of. It's even the funnier of the two movies.

    Django was evidence of how much Sally Menke saved the mindfuck of an Epic Tarintino always has in his head and turning footage into a watchable movie.

    Is that what that weird response that for some reason brought up Chicago was about? You not liking Django? Tev.

    No just general talking of the oscars - the show presentation was strange, they really emphasized on Chicago and other Oscar winning musicals. Its like the oscars were marketed to the gays or something.

    I was really disappointed with Django as a Tarintino fan. It was just awful and for it to win best original screenplay just felt like a nod to Tarintino for snubbing him for the Kill Bills

    They did an awful 25ish minute segue celebrating musicals, which included a horrid Chicago song and Bara Streisand howling some bullshit. it was miserable. it was the first Oscars i watched in at least 5 years and reiterated why I never bother.

    Yeah, it was like Zeta-Jones drunkenly commented “Honey, I feel like doing Chicago again” to Michael Douglas one night in their mansion, so he pulled strings and it ended up on the show. And wassup with Zellwegger? Pulling this decade’s Meg Ryan plastic surgery foul-ups only more heavily medicated with unpredictable lip movements during her interview. Thought they’d jump off her face and scurry up the aisle out the building. At least Latifah was the same.

    First time I’d seen or heard of the host before (not a Family Guy guy). Shirley Bassey stole the show with the monster Goldfinger finale, although at the time was hoping for a Diamonds are Forever/Moonraker medley inclusion. Would like to see her in concert actually. Late add.

    It's cool to make fun of the Oscars.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Agreed. I mean, fucking 8 1/2 could have been nominated in the Amour slot and I honestly believe Argo still would have won.
