The "Green" Oscars...

The notion of this fantastic, multi-billion dollar cluster-fuck of ego and excess trying to show a "green" face to the world is so patently ridiculous, it just makes me laugh. Did the celebrities bring their own champagne glasses from home? Were the hundreds of kleig lights replaced with energy efficient bulbs and run off of wind farms? Were the gowns and set pieces spun from hemp and recycled rags? Will the hundreds of millions of dollars in ad revenue generated be used to stop deforestation and global warming and other ills of society? I think not... But green is good, it makes people feel like someone somewhere is taking care of things so that we might go on living uninterrupted.
