To me, the Oscars have lost some of their gravitas because our attention is much more fractured than ever before. To be fair, I'm saying this as someone who's first theater going experience in 3.5 years was to see Cocaine Bear last night, so maybe not the best source.

As for the Disney shirts and the nonstop onslaught of QR codes and upsells masked as exclusivity? No thank you.

P.S. Cocaine Bear is a lock to sweep the Oscars next year.

Damn, I miss seeing and talking to Selina. Next time you see/talk to her, ask her to pop me a line or something, just to say "hey".
