Thoughts on the Oscars

NPH Opening: Veerrry nice. Entertaining. I love the effects of blending NPH into famous scenes, and the shadows and silhouettes, especially that shoutout to Singin’ in the Rain. Jack Black made the number… Continue reading

Terry Pratchett

“Only One” – Kanye West & Paul McCartney
