Nicolas Cage Freaking Out

I could watch this all day.  Nobody I mean nobody freaks out like Nicolas Cage.

It makes me think that some of this isn't acting and he's really that crazy.  I wouldn't want to be the assistant that messed up something for him.

He's like the Incredible Hulk minus the whole turning green and super strength part.

I've never seen "The Wicker Man" but based on those limited clips it seems like it was just an excuse for Cage to punch women in the face.

Sesame Street: Cookie Monster Wants to Host Saturday Night Live

Let's be honest, Cookie Monster is probably more entertaining than half of the people who have hosted "Saturday Night Live" so this would be an improvement.

His opening monologue is efficient and his Macgruber parody "Macarooner" was funnier than anything I've seen SNL do this year.

Although that's really not surprising as "Sesame Street" has consistently produced better parodies on things such as Mad Men and Old Spice.

In fact maybe they should just let Sesame Street writers craft a few skits instead of having Cookie Monster host.

How Michael Caine Speaks

It seems like everyone does some sort of De Niro or Pacino impression but what about Michael Caine.  Who doesn't enjoy him?

There really aren't enough good Michael Caine impressions at least until this.  Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon do amazing Michael Caine impressions in this clip from the BBC show "The Trip."

They should have thrown in some Batman dialogue for good measure though.

Receding Hairline Cornrows

They're a true tragedy and I don't know why people insist on getting them.

When your hair is receding, you're just better off admitting defeat instead of making things worse with cornrows.

If anything, the cornrows further expose how far the hair has receded,  and it's strange to see a lot of forehead then cornrows that start several inches back on the head than they should.

The most notorious offenders of this hairstyle are two athletes: Donovan McNabb and Jerry Rice.

It's not a coincidence that they both had the receding cornrows on the downslope of their careers.

Lake Shore the Canadian Jersey Shore

Here comes the downfall of Canadian society,  "Lake Shore."  Think of it like the "Real World" and "Jersey Shore" had a baby, which is something they shouldn't have done because they're first cousins.

The result is "Lake Shore."  I think it's best summed up as: the true story of eight ethnic stereotypes with inappropriate names such as "The Pole" or "The Italian" picked to live in a house full of alcohol.  Find out what happens when people stop being sober and get extremely offensive.

There's going to be a lot of people saying, " let's go oot and party" and "I'm all aboot partying," but probably not many people saying they're "soree."

Oh you silly Canadians, you just had to take one of the worst parts of American culture and try to imitate it.  Nobody wants to be like the Jersey Shore, you're just suppose to laugh at how ridiculous those people are.

While you're at it, try making a reel that's not an absurd eight minutes long.  To view reel in full screen click here.

Trade in Your Breakfast

Kind of random I know, but it's a great commercial even though others might disagree.  And I woke up this morning singing that "trade in your breakfast" song for some odd reason.

Of course, I would never actually trade in my breakfast because that seems like bad business, and I don't accept drinks from random people on the street.

But I do wonder what happened to the "trade in your breakfast" guy from the Dannon Frusion smoothie commercials though.

Did he not get enough people to trade in their breakfast and was fired?

Is that guy now just a crazy homeless man who yells at passersby to trade in their breakfast and if they don't then he accosts them?

Michael Jackson The Experience Video Game

This dance game looks pretty cool although it's only for the Nintendo Wii system.  The trailer is a little disconcerting though.

All those people look way too happy about playing "Michael Jackson The Experience."  I've never seen anybody that enthralled with a video game and it kind of freaks me out.  It's like they're in a cult or something.

Also, if they're doing all that dancing in a high-rise apartment they would never be that happy.

They would get through one song at most before the people below them got pissed and threatened to call the landlord unless they don't stop banging on their ceiling.

There's no mention of it, but I have to assume you get double points for signature Michael Jackson crotch grabs.
