The next day I was watching Jeff Mishlove interviewing
Raymond Moody, PhD, MD on my small screen on the
latest 'New Thinking Allowed' podcast that was uploaded on February 25th, 2019 in the USA.
It was the same cinema complex I watched the ceremony live last year, but this time in one of the cinema's smaller theatres underneath the main #1 cinema, in cinema #5 of the 'Five Star Cinemas' ironically enough. .
I wrote a post about my day out at the Elizabeth Cinema complex watching the Oscars last year in this post -

But if you are a Vegan, then Guinness ain't on the menu for you I'm afraid, like I wrote about in this old post -
The Nightmare of being a STRICT Vegetarian or Vegan?
While I'm still sticking to a dairy free diet, I have since the New year gone back to occasionally eating seafood, which is great not having to wait for the vegetarian section of the train to come round at my local Sushi Train restaurant.
But did this Irish themed cinema complex have to keep the green theme going on the day by having the movie 'Green Book' take out the "Best Picture" Oscar?!
How the hell didn't my tip for favourite (Roma) not win?!
Psyncho and the Year of the Pig?
I couldn't believe it when they called 'Green Book' the winner, I was waiting for the non-host to say that they had done a 'La La Land' and handed out the Oscar to the wrong movie (which in my book they had ... pardon the pun:-).
Viggo Mortensen and Synchronicity?
I saw 'Green Book' weeks before the Oscars and while I didn't mind it as a movie apart from it's twisting of "the truth" it just wasn't in the same league as 'Roma' I thought, but I agree with the Academy that Mahershala Ali deserved his award.
I don't care for all of the political BS that is bandied about at Oscar time, I just want a movie to be judged on its merits, not political content.
I'd already promised my sons that I would see 'Stan and Ollie' with them on the Wednesday of that week at another cinema ... which I did
... and I didn't want to see that movie twice in that same week, so I saw the Tracy Morgan movie Monday afternoon.
Oddly enough my son bought my ticket to 'Stan and Ollie' that Wednesday night and gave me a ticket with the same seat number I had of C-4 for the screening of the Oscars on Monday.
He knew nothing about my Oscar seat number either.
I'd always wondered what the Harp Room was like to watch a movie in anyway and I remembered hearing a podcast interview that Tracy Morgan had done with Oprah about his NDE, so I was interested to see him in his latest movie for that alone.
And in the HARP(O?-) Room, too.

I didn't think 'What Men Want' was as bad as the above review, but it probably wasn't worth the price of the ticket and would have been something to watch on Netflix rather than the big screen.
I found out two days later that 'Stan and Ollie' was worth seeing on the big screen, but for me only once would be enough I think.

Who's the puppet here I wondered and who is pulling my cosmic strings?-)

And seeing the old drive-in memorabilia in the case made me think of the 'BTTF predicts 9/11' synch film we sync-heads put our heads together to make, where I gave Joe the idea of the drive-in screen being a portal along with the movie screen and iPhone.
|The carpark across the road from the Elizabeth Cinemas|
The car-park attendant met me at the top of the car-park and said it was all full, but if I left my keys with him ... and all of my possessions in my car he failed to mention ... he would park it behind other cars like all of the precarious cars I had seen parked behind others as I was looking for a spot on the way up to him.
Visions of 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' sprung to mind and I told him "no way".
I headed over to Southbank and parked there for $17 for the day and had to walk back into the Brisbane CBD, getting to the cinema 40 minutes late and missing out on my complimentary glass of sparking wine.
Oh, well, at least I felt my car was safe while I watched the screen on Monday.

UPDATE: March 10th, 2019
After I had put up this post the latest 'Cosmic Keys' podcast popped up on my iTunes podcast list (we're a day ahead in Australia, so it is Sunday here) and I had a listen to it -
Episode 12: Dan and Scarlet Visit The Boom Life Podcast
I'm not a Roman Catholic, but I am a Liberal Catholic (even though I haven't been to a service in probably over 25 years ... but I would if I lived closer to the city ... promise;-) and I am surrounded by RCs friends and family members ... as well as Protestants I might add.
If you have hours to spend watching all those You Tubes in the post above and then listen to the 'Cosmic Keys' podcast you will get just how much it resonates.
But you guys in Chicago know diddly-squat about Australia and Australians, sorry to tell you.
