Guys, I’m stupid. I found this question in a bunch a stupid riddles. I guess I just don’t get the joke

Question:

How many bricks does it take to complete a build made of brick?

Answer:

Only one - the “last” one

huh? I get it. Could someone please explain what I am missing?

No matter how many bricks you use, it isn’t complete until the last one.

As suggested, it’s very good. Even Turn it On, which I’ve always dismissed/ignored as radio fluff, was surprisingly good once I actually paid attention to it.

Politics 2: Electric Boogaloo

Hahahaha!

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/02/27/exclusive-president-trump-oscar-fail-focused-hard-politics-not-get-basics-right/

President Donald Trump, in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News in the Oval Office, said that the Academy Awards failure on Sunday evening was due in large part to Hollywood’s obsessive focus on politics—attacking him, generally speaking.

Trump told Breitbart News in the exclusive interview that the Oscar fail may have been avoided had Hollywood’s finest focused less on attacking him and more on getting the event’s details right.

“I think they were focused so hard on politics that they didn’t get the act together at the end,” President Trump said. “It was a little sad. It took away from the glamour of the Oscars. It didn’t feel like a very glamorous evening. I’ve been to the Oscars. There was something very special missing, and then to end that way was sad.”

No word if Trump also blames his massive travel ban rollout fuck-up on his obsessive focus on attacking Muslims.

I saw someone on Twitter say (paraphrasing) “thank god that Warren Beatty wasn’t given Suicide Squad’s Hair and Makeup card.”

Pixar usually dominates the category, but hasn’t been doing much besides sequels lately.

As you have kids, that’s kind of a surprise you haven’t seen it.

I’ve seen more kids movies this year than I would have preferred (including Secret Life of Pets, Trolls, and Storks) but I somehow dodged (or missed out on?) Zootopia, Moana, and Two Strings. My wife took my girls to see the first two and I don’t think any of us saw the third.

You pretty much saw all the wrong ones Frink. Well done, I don’t think you could have messed that up more.

Storks sucked. The other two weren’t as terrible as I was expecting (although Trolls was still pretty bad).

When you’re married with kids, you count yourself lucky if you don’t have to go to every kids movie. Seeing the wrong ones is an unfortunate and sometimes unknowable side-effect of not having to see all of them.

Kurtz was fired because of Lucas’s ego, and the budget issues on ESB were just an excuse. Lucas could not stand someone else making a better SW movie than him, one that put story first and merchandising second. If Kurtz worked on Jedi it would have blown Empire out of the water.

The ending would have been way better but as it pertains to the totality of ROTJ it is uncertain. Surely things like Luke skipping the end of his training and the Ewoks being so focal wouldn’t have been written into the script but Kurtz’s version of ROTJ would need to do more than fixing the mistakes of the original ROTJ to be legitimately better.

The ending would have been the same. In ESB, Kurtz was not even involved in story creation to begin with. As Kasdan stated about the draft Lucas written “The structure of the story was all there”. If Lucas wanted it to end that way, Kurtz could do absolutely nothing about it.

From what I heard Kurtz’s ending was bittersweet with Luke going into exile and Han dying. Though the latter could have reportedly happened earlier in the film.

It is completely irrelevant since he had no control over the story.

Well clearly because it didn’t go his way, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t have input.

It does not mean he had any either.

Let’s not be silly now.

Why stop now?

Well then why call it dumb?

Just a assumption, honestly. Wouldn’t be surprised if I’m wrong.

I’ll just say Zootopia is definitely not a “dumb” film.

I never said it was dumb, I said that it winning was dumb…and I admitted I have no idea what I’m talking about. 😉

Apparently Jordan Horowitz (the guy holding the correct card in your gif and video) is also lying.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/27/movies/oscars-best-picture-moonlight-academy-awards.html

Jordan Horowitz knew something was wrong the moment he saw people in headsets scurrying across the Oscars stage.

Only a minute earlier Faye Dunaway had said the words that Mr. Horowitz had longed to hear — “La La Land” — as she announced the best picture winner for the 2017 Academy Awards. Mr. Horowitz, a producer on that film, and colleagues and cast members raced to the stage. Mr. Horowitz spoke first — “Thank you to the academy,” he began — but his excitement quickly dissipated, as he recalled the shocking end to the night in an interview with The New York Times after the ceremony.

“I’m holding the envelope and the award, and I had just given my speech, and there are people on the stage with headsets, and I thought, ‘That doesn’t seem right,’” Mr. Horowitz said at the Governors Ball, the official post-Oscars celebration.

“They asked to see my envelope, which I haven’t opened,” he recalled. “Clearly something was wrong. They open my envelope, and it says ‘Emma Stone, “La La Land.”’ So clearly something is not right. The guys in headsets were going around with urgency looking for the other envelope — it just kind of appeared,” he said. “One of the guys opens it, and it says ‘Moonlight,’ and I took it onstage and went to the microphone and said what I said.”
