Today is the big day, the Oscars, (named after the bologna, a staple at the pre-ceremony buffet, for those of you wondering). Truly, this is a joyous day, when people who toil, and slave in ignominy for little or no wage finally get some recognition for all of their hard work. No, wait that is me, the tireless blogger, working desperately to explain life, one dilemma, one inconsistency at a time. I think actors, and actresses, producers, directors, and others in the movie biz make a little coin, but who knows.
On an interesting side note, the other day my friend, and co-worker, John mentioned that we might all (we, and all, referring to mankind as a whole) might be a computer simulation for some child of the "gods." My friend, and co-worker, Bil replied that he sincerely hopes they don't stick him in a room with no doors, so he would be forced to wet himself. Which may not explain anything, but it is one more thing to worry about. Of course, giving voice to that fear may not be a such a good idea, if we are a simulation, but that is another post.
Anyway, back to the Bolognas, or more commonly the Oscars. Here is our rundown, and predictions.
Best Picture nominees are;
And several others that are too lengthy to type.
Well, since I haven't seen any of them, I am going to pick Her, since it is the easiest to type. By extension, just go through the list, and pick the shortest title and that is my choice to win the coveted processed lunch meat.
Remember, fried bologna is always better than microwaved. And add the cheese liberally, it really brings the sandwich home.

And the winner is.
There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
