I knew someone would find the thing. In this case the thing is a six minute animated Wild West short populated entirely by walking penises. Thank you friend, for sharing.

I'm looking forward to watch 'The Judge'. But I don't expect too much of that. I hope I'm wrong. then What's your opinion of the Oscar race? There is no chance? I think Robert Duvall have potential nomination. But I am wondering about RDJ's possibility. takemetoeverland

I will preface this response by saying that I have not seen the film.  I did read one draft of the script that was written by Bill Dubuque. 

(If you want someone who has actually seen it, please ask katebeckettts. In that regard, her take on this would be far, far more reliable than mine.)

Honestly, I have very low expectations.  To me, if it’s better received critically than The Soloist (i.e., 60%+ rating on Rotten Tomatoes), I’ll take it. In terms of Oscars, as much as I would literally kill something to see Robert nominated again, I doubt he’ll be recognize for this.

I’ve seen some RDJ fans really getting carried away, to a point of embarrassment, in terms of him nabbing something (ex. LOL, that Awards Daily poll). Like, come on, this isn’t the Teen Choice Awards or MTV.

For Robert Duvall, maybe.  So rare are there roles nowadays for anyone over 75, especially something that’s meaty (which this one is, actually). Plus, it’ll be for supporting (which is traditionally a weaker field) and he has legend status.

Of course, awards season is all about momentum and campaigning, really. All you essentially need is a decent/pretty good product and a strong marketing push. Likability is usually overlooked but I think it’s pretty critical, particularly with schmoozing the voters. And if there’s one thing that Robert has, it’s his well-regard in the industry.  Hollywood loves him.

So who knows? Anything can happen (ex. The Blind Side with Sandra Bullock, which I’ve been saying is the closest model that TD can aim to follow in the upcoming season).

In point— look, it’s not pessimism (ok, it kinda is).

It’s just that I’d rather come into this having really poor expectations and be pleasantly surprised, as opposed to the other way around.  Either way, I think it’ll be a decent (though not spectacular, and could’ve been better) start for Team Downey.

If anything, Robert in a non-franchise is an absolute cause for celebration by itself.  By that alone, The Judge is a winner.

And I’ll be seeing this 1049812 times in the theaters, good or bad.

(PS. I really, really, really hope I’m wrong and I’ll be pleasantly surprised.)

I hope the Team Downey intern/assistant who made today’s post on RDJ’s Facebook checked out three of the sources used in that article.

'Cause if she/he did, then—

Re: 24-hour call, hour #10

Today I am working at a section of the hospital that I haven’t worked at in over 7 months.

(Due to hospital politics + cost-cutting/layoffs, in addition to certain really whiney interns, this section had lost a certain group of workers and are thereby somewhat short-staffed. So they conveniently have the residents doing shifts here instead.

No words can accurately describe how bitter I am to be here.

It’s like— it feels like I’m being severely punished for something I didn’t do?

Salutations.

Now that I’m home and can react accordingly — ASDLFKJASDFL!

For those who sent me a message earlier today — thank you!  I can’t reply to all of them but I read each one and I appreciate it.

For those who are now here because of that Facebook post — hello!

  • This is a personal blog.
  • I make a lot of posts about Robert Downey Jr.
  • I also occasionally make posts about my day at work.
  • (I’m a doctor, specifically a second-year resident, living in Chicago.)
  • I love my cat.

If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them.

Dear Robert Downey Jr.’s Facebook—

Thank you.

It’s an understatement for me to say that you made my day today but you did.  Once was enough but twice is a blessing.

Please don’t be a stranger; you’re awesome.

Sincerely,

Me.
