    Tell you what Shock, you can come up with a list of Oscar nominations for Purplepride.org under various categories .. that'll keep you busy and may even get some more responses back form people.
    We could call them something like "Tarks" or "Grants" and maybe webby could add a one-liner for each winner under their avatar for the year
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    That's actually what I thought it was going to be when I read Shock's title for the thread. I'm up for a purple pride oscars as well. I haven't seen any of those movies either, I'm usually a big movie goer but I haven't had time this past semester.
