|Silly goose, take your blindfold off!|
Googan suggestion for the weekend - College basketball or GTFO. But also, The Place Beyond the Pines, my third most anticipated movie of the year. See Baby Goose in all his sultry glory before he fades into a retirement filled with puppies, goose feather pillows and warm mochaccinos.

And the acting is guaranteed to be worth the price of admission alone. Sort of like Blue Valentine, I guess.
But most importantly, this:
