Mark Cuban Is Keeping Busy

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

Mark Cuban fascinates me. He's a bazillionaire. He owns companies, he owns basketball teams... I think he might actually own a couple of people. And he could win a couple of Oscars tonight, as a producer for a couple of movies: Good Night, and Good Luck, and Enron: The Smartest Guys In The Room.

If I was a bazillionaire, I'd spend all my time drunk on a private beach somewhere, and the only people who would ever hear from me would be high-priced whores and people I wanted to have killed. But Cubes is out there, always looking for something else to do, always pushing things to the next level. I just don't have that kind of drive. Which is why I guess I'm not a bazillionaire to begin with.

So I applaud Cubes, and I wish him luck, though I'm not going to be watching the Oscars tonight. I think of the Oscars as kinda like the Pro Bowl. It's cute and all, but it doesn't really have a lot to do with honoring the best of the business.
