...I'm okay with being REALITY-based.

I couldn't have said it better.

Don't Let the Masses Hear the Music!
Thanks to byte back for the revealing internal MTV memo on which songs & videos to ban during the war. The irony of going against calls for banning explicit sex in videos doesn't seem to phase MTV execs, but God forbid people see war footage or bombs dropping...in music videos.

Non-Fiction Strikes Again
Kudos to Michael Moore - one more reason to love someone who isn't afraid of the establishment - and wins their awards anyway. I'm sure everyone either saw his speech (and it was beautiful) or read it, but it's worth repeating...over and over and over again.

Whoa. On behalf of our producers Kathleen Glynn and
Michael Donovan from Canada, I'd like to thank the Academy
for this. I have invited my fellow documentary nominees on
the stage with us, and we would like to — they're here in
solidarity with me because we like nonfiction. We like nonfiction
and we live in fictitious times. We live in the time where we
have fictitious election results that elects a fictitious president.
We live in a time where we have a man sending us to war for
fictitious reasons. Whether it's the fictition of duct tape or fictition
of orange alerts we are against this war, Mr. Bush. Shame on you,
Mr. Bush, shame on you. And any time you got the Pope and the
Dixie Chicks against you, your time is up. Thank you very much.
