    I rather like that picture of Bridges. Handsome devil. That is one 60-year-old man I would not kick out of bed.

    Anyways, I like Rogers’ simplification of what goes into the Oscar race. Nothing shocking, but at least he makes the intangible tangible.

    My prize greyhound, IB, has just about all those factors working in its favor. But who knows what that’ll amount to.

    Just poking fun. It’s a weird angle and set-up. Walking up the stairs.

    If you ask Bridges to walk up a flight of dingy stairs, he’ll do it. The Dude Abides.
