    I’m lame and I’m going to beg you to check out my music page. What I should really do is try finding a real job, seeing I’ve been trying to get famous since the days of Myspace and it hasn’t happened.

    a very much deserved Oscar. Christopher’s acceptance speech was gracious just as it should be. this man could give a master’s class in acting to just about everyone that was in the audience.

    If it took the Academy this long to recognize him, it tells us how little taste they have.
