And the Oscar went to WHO?

Well, I kinda sucked on my Oscar picks again this year. Only 12 out of 24. My personal record is 18 and I have yet to match it. The annoying thing is, I actually called the Crash win, but then I second-guessed myself and crossed it out. I had a sort of suspicion there'd be a Brokeback Mountain backlash, because it'd just been getting too much attention and there were too many parodies and jokes flying around to the point that we were all sick of hearing about it. But then I thought, nah, the Academy will want to show the world how progressive and gay-loving they are by giving an Oscar to BBM. Shows how much I know.

A while back austin360 mentioned in her blog that I've become an eBay whore. Well, that's not exactly true, but I have recently ventured into the exciting world of eBay for the first time. See, one day while looking at Veronica Mars LJ communities, I stumbled on a little place called neptune_style. The wonderful people over there (and at a similarly-themed thread on TWOP) spend their free time identifying Veronica's clothes and posting info on where you can buy them. Hey, I thought, I've always liked the way Veronica dresses--lots of casual layers and jeans and hoodies and cute t-shirts--I should check that out. Turns out, a lot of the stuff she wears on the show is pretty common, and once it's out of the stores you can often find it on eBay, brand new with tags, at huge discounts.

So far I've bought two jackets, both from "Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner." This one that she wore during the bathroom scene with Logan ("How much easier would your life be if you were indifferent to me?") and this one that she wore to the cigar shop and was subsequently sniffed by Keith. And both are pretty and awesome and comfy and fit me perfectly! Yay!

Stupid Oscars. Stupid Crash. Stupid Gay Cowboys can't win awards cause they have stupid gay moustaches. (I'm not bitter!)

Cute jackets! Does the second one have embroidery on the back of it? I thought I remembered seeing something on the back when that ep was on last week.

What kind of stores do the clothes usually come from? There are shows that I can identify the clothes, but others that are too cool and I never see those clothes retail.

Yep, there's some flowers embroidered on the back of the corduroy jacket.

A lot of Veronica's clothes are by American Eagle, Abercrombie, Urban Outfitters, The Gap, and Ben Sherman. And she wears a lot of t-shirts and hoodies from Lucky Brand Jeans. The olive jacket I got is Abercrombie and the cord is a Roxy jacket from PacSun (both of which I got for around $20 each). And the tie dyed t-shirt she's wearing in your icon is from Urban Outfitters. See, now I've turned into some kind of psycho fashion freak.

No, you've developed a healthy interest in VM's fashion.

I should say that I did kind of find it weird that there are a few places that make it their mission to locate and source out all of VM's clothes... but, you know, I've seen weirder things.

Look at you with the cute! The jackets are darling--do you feel snarkier and full of the clever when you wear them? Because that would be even better. Maybe if they have a panel this year, Enrico Colantoni can sniff you! Wait, I'm suddenly not sure that's good.

I've decided to pretend that Crash doesn't exist (although I'm impressed you even thought to call the upset--didn't even cross my mind).
