René DeCat

You think you know what I know and don’t know, but you don’t know that I know all the things you assume I don’t know but I do know. I also know a lot that you don’t know though you never suspect I do know.  Remember, Mom, I’m a cat; I’m Vif.  Cogito ergo sum, declared René DeCat, or was that René DeCaht?

Oscar Oh Scar

It's five days now since the Oscar 2017, and I happened to learn about the mishap climax at the Oscar ceremony this year, where a wrong film was announced as the best picture and watched a clip of the event.  Well, that must have been some drama for the TV viewers of the ceremony.  The Oscar has been a farce all these many years; but it has become a McCoy SLAP-STICK now. I have not seen either La La Land or Moonlight.  But what an irony that the latter not only treats an African American life but features an all-black cast (so I just leaned, too) and won the award, ceremoniously sidestepped, following the years of Hollywood’s ethnic bias in nominations.
