First at Last

Although this year's Academy Awards did not strike me as earth-shattering as previous ceremonies and winning movies (especially since I didn't get to watch a single nominated film this past year), there were a few good highlights worth watching.

Of course, there is the very long overdue Best Director win by Martin Scorsese for "The Departed". It certainly made me happy to see all his hard work in such masterpieces like "Raging Bull", "Goodfellas", and "The Aviator" culminate to this very moment, and to have his latest work win Best Picture be the icing on the cake.

However, my favorite highlight was when Forest Whitaker gave an incredibly captivating acceptance speech upon winning the Best Actor award for "The Last King of Scotland". My words won't do it justice so check it out in its entirety here. Simply inspiring.

Lent '07: Facebook, MySpace, and IM

Today, I bowled a 202!!


For this year's season of Lent, I will be giving up Facebook, MySpace, and IM. My fellow bowler will be keeping me accountable as I will find other things to make my time more productive and more importantly, God-glorifying.

What will you be giving up for these next 40 days?
