The Deacon's Bench

The trailer for next year’s Oscar winner

In fact, it’s the trailer for every Oscar winner. And it’s a very clever deconstruction that helps to explain what we were watching Sunday night. Enjoy.

hi Greg.
I am hoping that you can email me ‘off-blog’ to help me with some research that I am doing re: blogging and offering/receiving spiritual support. I am working towards my doctorate in the Theology of Disability and am interested in hearing from folks who have been successful at engaging the internet as a tool of spiritual support.
If you can help- or maybe even take time for a quick phone call this week- please email me at
Thanks very much. Audrey

LOL, Deacon Greg!
This is probably why I can hardly bear to go to a movie theater these days. At least when a motion picture commercial is on t.v., I can mute it.
Also bugs me when the studio uses music from one film I love in order to promote another film. Just like in this send-up. Brilliant.
