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? Oh, Descartes?  Is that how the name is spelled?

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.
