Quit You? Never

Random Perusables
Time Magazine's How The West Was Won Over. Great read on the phenom that is Brokeback Mountain. So pleased it's doing so well.

CBS News on fallout from George Clooney's Jack Abramoff joke at the Globes. I'm sorry Jack's young daughter is in tears. But come on now. Let's not blame the movie star for her frayed nerves. How about the dude himself. If my Dad was a corrupting influence on our already corrupt political climate, a racist, a criminal, and a future inmate... I'd be crying too.

Yeah, definitely a great album! Still can't get enough of "You Are My Sister", "Bird Gurhl" and "Hope There's Someone". Moving on.

So glaad (omgsofunny) to see Mysterious Skin in there for Picture.

However, didn't there used to be acting categories? I seem to remember this because Colin Farrell got nominated twice last year for Alexander and Home and the End of the World. Or am I thinking of a different GLAAD award ceremony?
