Why is Michelle Pfeiffer Mentioned in Two Current Pop Songs?


Despite not starring in a movie at the moment, Michelle Pfeiffer is name checked in not one, but two current pop songs:  Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars's "Uptown Funk" and Vance Joy's "Riptide."

At the 19 second mark of "Uptown Funk,"  Mars sings, "This hit, that ice cold Michelle Pfeiffer, that white gold"  

On a side note can we all agree this song sounds like it should be on the 80s Ghostbusters soundtrack?

The Elmy Awards 2014


Sesame Street is back at it again with their parodies of TV shows such as True Detective, House of Cards, Scandal, and Sherlock.  In a video for Entertainment Weekly,  it pokes fun at the Emmys and various TV dramas.

According to Cookie Monster's Rust Cohle,  time is a round flat cookie that never completely satisfies your hunger.

The The House of Cards one is also great, but what really steals the show is the Scandal parody. Cookie Monster keeps coming back with plot turns that get more and more ridiculous yet true to the show.

Last Five Songs I Heard in the Supermarket



It's that time once again to see what songs they are randomly playing in supermarkets.

1. Green Day - Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)

It's still strange to think this is actually a Green Day song, but perfect if you want to get sentimental about the food you're buying.  It's something unpredictable but in the end that fruit looks ripe, I hope it doesn't give me the food poisoning of my life.

The Songs of the Billboard Top 10 in Their Simplest Meaning



Music is full of metaphors and florid language, but sometimes it's just nice to get straight to the point. In that spirit,  let's take a look at the current Billboard top 10 and break them down to their simplest meaning.

1.  Magic - Rude

Simplest Meaning: "I just want to bang your daughter so stop being a dick about it"

I can't stress how much I hate this song.  It's rude to my ears and I don't blame the father for wanting to keep this guy away from his daughter.  I wouldn't want a canadian playing reggae guy anywhere near my daughter either.

Last Five Songs I Heard in the Supermarket



It's that time again to recap musical selections of supermarkets.  Here are the last five songs that I've heard while shopping in the supermarket:

1. Mary J. Blige - Real Love

This song is almost too good to be played in the supermarket.  It was distracting enough that I actually forgot to buy some things on my list.

Terrifying New Mascots for Lemonheads and Mcdonald's Happy Meal


This has been a bad week to be a child as Lemonheads and Mcdonald's introduced creepy new mascots Lemonhead and Happy respectively.

Apparently market research determined that brand ambassadors who inspire fear are a good idea.

They both look like characters out of Goosebumps books,  but I think Lemonhead is the more disturbing mascot.
