Friday Fives

Alright, crackers…  a little late.  My apologies, I have been all goofed on trypophan and stuffing shooters.

1. What is a common ear worm that you get?

this minute, ‘Annie Dog’ from Smashing Pumpkins.  Here is what happens, though.  Every morning, I wake up with a song stuck in my head (that is what an earworm is, by the way).

2.  How long do they last?

quite simply, until I listen to the song.

3. What do you do to get rid of them?

uh… are you reading?  i listen to the song.  That is the only way to get rid of them.  Also, very specifically, you have to listen to the WHOLE song.  This is generally where earworms come from… unfinished songs in your head through the day.

4. What is the worse ear worm you’ve ever had?

years ago, Ford had this truck commercial with some famous country singer dude.  He sang “if I had money, tell you what I’d do.  I’d go downtown and buy a Ford truck or two.  Crazy ’bout Ford truck”.  Well, it was catchy as hell, and was played every 30 seconds for months.  It drove the wife and I crazy.  So, we would torture each other.  I would call her at work and sing that stupid song and hang up.  Then, it would be in her head for hours again.  Man, I rule.

5. Do you get some guilty pleasure in passing the ear worm along?

um, yeah.  We just covered that.  I guess I should have read the questions all the way through, first.  I don’t though, because I want you to get an unfiltered real time look at my awesomeness.  Plus, I don’t want to over think these questions.  They are meant to be light and airy… like you.

Nic Cage stops acting, and admits it!



Nicholas Cage is a courageous man.  Many actors just stop acting in their prime.  Who?  Keanu Reeves, David Caruso, Gary Sinise, Dennis Farina, the Rock, and Al Pachino… to name a few.  These are people who either opted to stop acting…  or worse:  play the same character for their entire career.


Cage falls into the former.  He was a good actor.  Remember Raising Arizona?  That was good stuff, solid character acting.   Then, the worst possible fate for an actor befell him > action roles.

Some could never act, I am looking in your direction Matthew McConnasomethingorother.

Some time ago, Nick Cage stopped acting.  Just, threw in the towel.  Oh, he was in movies alright, but he stopped acting sometime right after ‘Leaving Las Vegas’.  Here is what Nick Cage said earlier this year he was “going to quit acting”.  Yeah, he is still doing movies, he just isn’t acting anymore.  At least dude admits it.


Boy, he sure nailed that one right on the head. Nick Cage is like Axl Rose.  They both would have served the world better had they died at 27 and left us wondering what awesomeness they would have given us.  Instead, we have the reality, which is a shit sammich.




mean?  sure.  but accurate, admit it!
