[LOS ANGELES TIMES] – Hey, what’s the difference between the acting nominees at this year’s Oscars and that KKK rally in Anaheim?

Answer: The KKK rally was more diverse.

OK, so I’m probably not getting hired to write jokes for Chris Rock any time soon. But I can’t be the only one who thought his material at the Oscars on Sunday night could have used some extra work.

Granted, Rock had a lot of pressure on him. On one side, there were people hoping he would really push the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, and make some people uncomfortable. On the other, there were probably plenty of Hollywood figures who were squirming in their seats, hoping he wouldn’t say anything too harsh.

    yes..I like the basic concepts behind Second Life but it seems incredibly outdated and when I played it was intensely non-intuitive / user friendly to an extent that made EVE look like a game for toddlers. thanks from
