Hey! it’s Friday the 13th this week — the only such occurrence in 2014! — and What makes it even more exciting is that Mercury is also Retrograde. So, your luck will be extra shitty! Just kidding! Who believes in all that stuff anyway? Hmmm… Fact: As many as twenty-one million people around the nation fear this date, causing an estimated $800 million in lost business dealings each time it occurs. Superstitious or not, everyone is aware whenever Friday the 13th approaches and tries to avoid being unlucky, so it’s no big surprise that real money slot machines don’t get played very much on these days, people prefer use the betfair bet credits online.

It’s no secret that I couldn’t care less about most awards shows – the Grammy’s being a prime example of a formerly held-sacred-by-me tradition that long ago became all about rewarding commercial success over acknowledging artistic merit. But being a huge movie fan, film awards like The Independent Spirit Awards, The Golden Globes and, coming up on March 2nd, The Oscars (whose list of nominees can be found at This Link) are the nights of ceremonial award giving that I shamelessly indulge in. Because to me, those awards are still more about the art than the box office returns.
