In an interview with the Russian kid who created Chatroulette, he said he named it after this famous scene in The Deer Hunter. I am dubious about his claim.

Next Week: Political Blind Items
Unfortunately, No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood can’t be released every year, so I’m not that interested in the outcome of this year’s Oscar’s. But that’s not stopping me from flippantly critiquing the nominees.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – Yawn! Once again, the salty sea captain stole the show. This was first proven by the cinematic masterpiece, Cabin Boy.
Frost/Nixon – It was entertaining while I was watching it. I haven’t thought about it since.
Milk – Biopics should be their own, lesser category.
The Reader – Didn’t see it, and I’m guessing neither did you.
Slumdog Millionaire – This is my pick. I’ll never watch it again, but it was a fun poopy ride.
The two things we will learn from the 2009 Oscars is that Wall-E was robbed and Heath Ledger is still dead.
Lastly, Synecdoche, NY should’ve gotten a screenplay nod.
