Things I Noticed, February 20, 2009

Filed under: Entertainment — CPav @ 5:06 pm

Hey, gang.  It’s been a slow week for noticing things, and an even slower week for posting the things I noticed.  Today is Friday, February 20.  The weekend is brought to you by Saturday and Sunday’s Forgotten English word “gwethall”,  meaning household stuff or remnants, which links it to the Welsh word “gweddill”, whence comes the modern word “widow”.  Tomorrow is the Best Picture nominee marathon at AMC Theaters and Sunday is the Oscars, otherwise known as the holiest day of the year at PavCo HQ.

Here are a few things I’ve noticed today:

  • The producers of this Sunday’s Oscar telecast have promised that there are some big changes in store for Oscar night. Somehow, I don’t think these are them, as fervently as we might wish for some of them.
  • Back when she was a contestant on the UK Big Brother, returned for a controversial stint in which she made some racist remarks, and then went on the Indian version, Jade Goody was accused of dying to be on camera.  Now, she’s actually dying on camera, courting controversy one last time to secure her children’s future, while suffering from cancer in a very public way.  Crazy Days and Nights has a summary, and the New York Times and the Huffington Post a longer piece.
