Take that, Princess Giselle

Whatever else happens on this Oscar night, I'm glad to see "Falling Slowly" from Once beat the trio of songs from Enchanted. Man, I've had my fill of fairy tale songs for a while. Indie rock goes Hollywood:



A well-deserved win for Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová.

Jon Stewart = classiest moment ever letting Markéta come back out to give her acceptance speech.

Yep! Totally classy move, and her speech made it worth it.

Make art!

My wife is very excited that I'm taking her to see them when they come to Madison in a couple months. Their win was easily the best part of the Oscars last night.

I'm really happy for them and the movie was nice. However, I'd have to say they don't rank that high on my list of acts I want to pay money to see.
