[on his film Crash (2004) winning the Oscar for Best Picture] Was it the best film of the year? I don’t think so, there were great films that year. Good Night, and Good Luck. (2005) – amazing film. Capote (2005) – terrific film. Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain (2005), great film. And Spielberg’s Munich (2005). I mean please, what a year. Crash, for some reason, affected people, it touched people.

I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
