Twas a week before Christmas and all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse

No transcript...

Even though Oscar Poker had been moribund for two weekends / sidelined by tech issues and whatnot, it was time to record again, and so  Jeff and Sasha went to own on a rainy Sunday afternoon and went to tow. All hail Adam Carolla’s spot-on analysis about sports vs. award season and politics.

Points hit:

How the Oscars lost their brand.
Adam Corolla and Rob Schneider on the Oscars.
Leave the World Behind - a movie produced by the Obamas and whether or not that creatively healthy.

Having freedom of mind as opposed to being “in the bubble.”
Complimenting Jeff for not being an Oscar whore.
Jeff’s ongoing annoyance with Lily Gladstone and Barry Keoghan.
The Best Picture standouts, according to Jeff — Poor Things, Maestro, The Holdovers
The Boys in the Boat is an “old-fashioned” movie.
The return of “traditionalism” with Barbenheimer.

The 4K Titanic Blu-ray is great.
Was Joan Baez molested? What is she trying to say?
Therapy is ruining everything.
How erasing boundaries led to helicotper parenting in the 90s, which led to “safetyism.”
Why is Todd Haynes’ May December so successful with critics?
