The Mag - Giggles Of Course

From the archives of- I hope you understand this.

"I don't trust anyone who doesn't laugh."
Maya Angelou 


"Everything is backwards now, like out there is the true world, and in here is the dream."

Jake Sully

Just for fun

Mark my words
One Fine Day
and another Skyfall away
the Academy Awards 
will feel the earth move
and then
you'll see 
 hold your breath and count to ten
the 88th Academy Awards
in all its Glory
 as Empire 
will Strike Back many chords
live from Jurassic Park.
So, "Forget about it" Hollywood-
Jurassic Park
is way better 
to honor that shady-Grey flick
you know will see Oscar
next year
while live streaming
and tweeting on the twitter
we'll all
 be over 
this year's tighty-whities
after all
chains and whips and sex stunts
so vivid this Mama refuses to ever go see it.
Snap away 
all you want daughter
 Dakota, some of us may 
be Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
seeking thrills by day
on rides 
 like Alice in Wonderland Coaster
or better
 a Dark Knight Coaster
always runs daily
from Independence Day.
Just remember
you never have to see
what you don't want to see.

Speaking of seeing-
Bring on those tasty stunts
or rather
 planned ambush attack 
fade in Jack Black
Ooh La-la
fade out Jack Black
 by that old Cinderella shoe
(you really had to see)
it all truly makes our
La La La La 
Lipstick lovely
day, Ooh La-la
See you next year
Old Academy
award of merit, Oscar.
Or, shall we say uncle,

Note:  All joking aside, last evening's 87th Academy Awards show was by far a pleasing performance.  It had me glued (phone free) all night.  Except, for puppy potty breaks.  The first time in years I didn't feel the biting urge to write the Academy, or swear I'd never watch it again.  Major bonus, no repulsing fashion errors either.  A worthy moving pictures presentation.

I really love a good laugh and I love being around those who laugh too.

I am sad I missed it! NPH was hosting too - I'm surprised I forgot.

Wonderful poem, love the cinematic atmosphere you've created !!

EG CameraGirl said...

I do like to laugh! I agree, the show was better than most years. I know because for the first time in many years I didn't fall asleep. :) I am not really a a big-watcher of movies or a follower of what happens in Hollywood. But I did find last night's presentation tasteful and entertaining.

I try, successfully, to avoid television as well as amusement park shysters. Laughter on the other hand makes life worthwhile.
Nicely done.

Except, for puppy potty breaks.

I'm so busy with those! And yet, they still find enough to go in the basement.

Love your post...missed the awards.

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

Yeah...all of that. I have given up on awards shows. There are so many, and so many things that are offensive now. Movies, too. It isn't like the old days...Bette Davis and those stars!

This was delicious. Tighty-whities have never read so appropriate. May I please right the Alice in Wonderland Coaster? Please?
