Baby steps

1 Mar

Everyone on earth seems to agree that Sunday’s Oscars were an unmitigated disaster. You don’t need me to recount the awfulness, but I would like to show you a clip from the 1988 Oscars that show just how far our unmitigated disasters have come. Our worst has NOTHING on the prior generation.

The video is terrible quality, but it’s worth your time anyway. Ricki Lake! Corey Feldman! Other people! Just watch.

    Same thing as regards Super Bowl halftime shows. As execrable as the Black Eyed Peas were and always will be, I grew up with the Up With People troupe, which performed at multiple Super Bowls. They were basically a Mr. Show skit brought to life and played dead straight.
