"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Academy Awards Teaser ...

"Questions are never indiscreet, answers sometimes are." - Oscar Wilde

Here's one more burning question for the Oscars 2015.

Query:  How many times will host Neil Patrick Harris mention his husband, his kids, that he is married, that he has a family?

Song for this post here.

Joan Crawford: [Joan addresses the fans camped out in front of her house on Oscar night]
I would rather be here with you than anywhere else in the world.

Me too.

UPDATE:  I couldn't have been more wrong - he never mentioned it once.  


  1. I won't be watching. I freely acknowledge the role heterosexuals have had in mucking up marriage, but that doesn't mean we should further pervert an institution and turn it into a free-for-all. The purpose in Hollywood choosing this particular host (who, btw, is not especially talented) was to further brainwash America into thinking it's normal to have two parents of the same sex. Besides, I don't go to the movies anyway.

  2. Sounds like a drinking game...every time NPH mentions the words husband,kids, married and family you slug back a couple ounces of Jack Daniels. By the time the first hour is over you'll be blotto'd. Personally I will be watching Downton.

  3. I can't remember the last time I watched the Academy Awards. We go to so few movies during the year and you know they aren't the ones the academy honors (like Brokeback Mountain). Let's see we saw the third episode of the hunger games, the film about breaking the Nazi's code with the what's-his-name from Sherlock, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Captain America. I wouldn't even know what they were talking about.

  4. I'm with Angela.

  5. I watched - he didn't mention it once. I was surprised - he was so low key.

    I watched Downton too. LOL!

    1. "he was so low key"

      Except the time he only wore his socks and underwear. A frat boy joke, but that's America.

      I'm glad "Ida" won for best foreign film. A must-see movie, and is already available at Netflix. It's a challenging film--I'm not sure it's the kind of movie that deepens your faith, but it's obviously a very Catholic film.

    2. I actually missed the locked out of the dressing room piece because I was watching Downton for a minute or two.

      I would like to see Ida - I'm happy for Poland.

    3. I saw that picture where he is in his skivvies. Washboard abs but should we care? I don't. I liked looking at the pictures of the dresses. One dress could feed lots of people but well, they looked lovely. ^^

      I already watched the entire season of Downton when it was airing in Great Britain. I watched the Christmas special too. Hold on to your shorts though since some of the drama was not as credible but a real eye roller. ^^

    4. I'm thinking some of the drama is less credible already - I'm sure there will be surprises but the writing seems weaker this season. Still love Maggie Smith though. Rose's mother is a mean lady - isn't she!

    5. Some of the plots are not ringing true for 1924. And I am surprised Rose has not bobbed her hair yet. She was such a spark and now she's all mumsy.

  6. AGGGGHHHHHH, would NPH please just take a damn vacation???? Of course he had to go all "gay sterotype," and come out in his skivvies..cause you know, narcissism they name is Neil...(Terry did I ever tell you I couldn't stand NPH??) I think award ceremonies are boring, especially this one so seeing his smug mug plastered everywhere did not make me want to tune in..besides, "Walking Dead," is on and they have their first gay kiss....Ahh...the gays survive the ZombieApocalypse (at least for now) and are the only ones to be clean cut and well dressed.

    I am sure NPH has volunteered to guest star as a zombie and he would be tweeting about it for months...(though watching Michone or Daryl off him would be fun.)

    1. (Terry did I ever tell you I couldn't stand NPH??)

      Yes you did - LOL.

      The awards were very boring though. I felt sorry for NPH.
