  1. I thought it was shameful that the camera work for this segment made it impossible to read a lot of the names. All we should have been seeing was the screen itself - or else why bother?

  1. The necrology - now I finally know what to call it! Thanks ... Dead Oscar Montage just sounds too callous sometimes
