From my FB and Twitter feeds the annual surprise/anger over the Oscar nominations seems more subdued than usual, I wonder if that means the 10 best picture nominations thing is working.

Well, I think it is pretty surprising that they only nominated 9 pictures this year and The Master didn't get a nomination.
FINE

Nobody's pitching a fit that Dark Knight Rises wasn't nominated.

Did they? I haven't looked at the nominees yet.  I heard lots of negative things about it though, wasn't interested myself.

You should stop hanging out with Scientologists.

Wait... the remake of 'Manos: the Hands of Fate' didn't get nominated? ;)

With good reason: it was only marginally watchable.

Aren't they using some sort of ranked voting system now? It was the same reason, or related to, why they had so few contenders in the best song category last year.

Yeah, they are - I know it wasn't a deliberate 'let's leave this out' and that it just didn't get the votes, and I haven't even seen The Master yet, I am just surprised is all.

Yes I'm surprised at it not showing either; it seemed like the kind of film that (if I'm understanding the system of voting right) if it got an "Eligible" vote, the person voting thus would also rank it high enough to pass the threshold.

And it seemed like a film that would get a fair number of "eligible" votes.

I'd like to see Jennifer Lawrence get the Best Actress award, I really liked her performance in Silver Linings.

From what I've read though, De Niro's turn should mostly be considered in the editing category. ;)

Normally this would be my cue to say "not me!" but acute prostatitis is a bitch. :(

Yikes. Sounds painful.

Sort of like how it feels when a kidney stone is on deck to travel the last stretch to freedom at times. Mostly it's just the irksome feeling of everything not being 100%, I have a really high tolerance for pain though so I might not be gauging this the way others would. Have a follow up on the 2nd and hopefully the third antibiotic will be be the charm, the previous two didn't really do much.

Oh and having a procedure next Saturday (as in a week tomorrow) to see if the underlying cause is something gut related which will mean a nice bit of surgery if it is, so that'll be fun, obviously. :)

Eh, probably not, just a possibility. I'm mostly looking forward to seeing the pics of my innards, last time the bugger neglected to keep copies for me (though I wish he'd take a video instead).

It's a bit pricey for just getting rid of coffee smells, but you could try something like this:
